if you join when the server is loading the map with RC1, your client crashes.

Is this reproducible? The crashdumps are not very clear. It is something with C4.

Yes, I was able to reproduce it every time on my test server yesterday when I had to reproduce a bug with something I wrote that happened while joining when the server gameovered. Everytime I joined the game would freeze after putting me ingame (after the game loaded).

Basically, to reproduce:

1. Execute the 'gameover' command on your test server.
2. Immediately join the server.

What happens for me is that after loading the game freezes up and gives an 'Internal Error'.

It was not setting a "the player is not in game" flag correctly, so that it sent data of the previous game to the player, which conflicted with the next game's data. Other clients clear the game data when they start loading, but since the joining client would have finished loading, the data would get mixed up. Renegade's game start/gameover/intermission/join code is really bad, it requires handling weird edge cases everywhere... Razz
