[SOLVED] Crash due to unhandled NiPathController

Post by Slissith » 12 May 2019, 14:28

Hey guys!

I've been having issues ever since I switched to a somewhat more recent nighty build for about 2 weeks now. The game crashes whenever I try to transition from the interior "Vivec, Foreign Quarter Lower Waistworks" to the exterior "Vivec" cell. Here's what openmw log has to say about it:

Playing music/explore/jeremy soule style/oblivion/atmosphere_04.mp3
Changing to interior
Unloading cell Vivec, Simine Fralinie: Bookseller

Help :p

No, NIPathController is unrelated. What mods do you have installed?

Hey there, thanks for the heads up, didn't know that.

Here's my load order!
Spoiler: Show
I also tried loading just Morrowind, Tribunal and Bloodmoon. The issue persists but the log is a little different...

I think that i possible stumbled on the same crash (segfault) just now. Stack trace is:

I had some errors in logs that appear to be unrelated (for instance, occurring before I updated openmw or unrelated to rendering). Are you aware of this issue already? I can debug this to pinpoint the issue since it is very reproducible here but I don't know enough about OpenMW code or OSG to actually fix it in a reasonable amount of time.

Can you get me a detailed trace (i.e. with function arguments) and tell me which commit of OSG it is? I can probably work out the actual cause with that.

Good thing that you asked. It is the most recent OSG release (3.6.3). Build against the OSG 3.4 works fine. I can provide more information next week.

OpenMW doesn't work on OSG 3.6.3 properly due to a regression in OSG that was fixed later (in yet-unreleased 3.6.4). Try the upstream OpenSceneGraph-3.6 branch, or alternatively, my own branch where I attempted to rebase most of the remaining "useful" OpenMW/osg optimizations that aren't present upstream.

Ok, therefore this topic reaches the conclusion. However, I think that it may be a good idea to update README file in the repository (or maybe the cmake script?). Do you agree?

With Robert potentially deciding to drop a new RC at any given moment I wouldn't bother. There are other issues with 3.6.x that need taking care of.
