Finding the cause of a random crash issue (Special Thread #1)

Recommended Posts

This thread has been created to find the cause of the random game crashing with the community help.
Game version 1.107b and later is required for submitting crash dumps.
 
Please post only the data requested and avoid off-topic discussion.
 
1. To enable Windows Error Reporting, run (double-click) this log file:
\data\EnableErrorReporting.reg
2. In a case of the game crash open the folder where crash dumps are stored, you can do this by running this batch file:
\data\ViewCrashDumps.cmd
3. Sort the dump files by date to find a newest one
4. Zip the newest dump file "Il-2.exe.****.dmp" (**** is a random number)
5. Post about the crash in this thread, attach the archive you just made and provide some details:
  • When you encountered the crash;
  • In what game mode (MP/QMB/campaign/scenario);
  • In what mission;
  • What did you do before the crash;
  • What happened in the mission before the crash;
  • Additional info you think is relevant to the crash.

I ran the EnableErrorReporting.reg the day of the update.  Today about 2200 ET, I was flying in a Yak on Wings of Liberty.  I was diving on a plane and was zooming in on the view when the screen froze, I continued to receive sound.  I had to ctrl-alt-del and go to Task Mgr.  It showed IL2 as Not Responding and I closed the application.  I ran the ViewCrashDumps.cmd and there was no file listed.

Had a second instance of a freeze with sound, then dump to desktop with no memory error message and no log file.  I was flying in Quick Mission.

 

Was flying last night with three others on Wings of Liberty and two of them experienced this same event simultaneously.

Had another freeze with sound in Quick Mission.  This time I let the screen stay up.  I heard my plane eventually crash.  I then heard an error message tone.  I was able to shrink IL-2 to view the error message but I was unable to get a printscreen as when I tried to paste it into a program it gave me an out of memory message.  I did however write down the first error message which is below.

 

 

IL-2 Sturmovik Windows - Application Error

Instruction at 0x5bba9a61 referenced memory at 0xe958212c.  The memory could not be read.

 

When I checked the crash dump files there was not one for this crash.

Please also try to find the dumps with this search mask (in Windows explorer): Il-2*.dmp (capital i, regular l, ...)

 

A possible reason for no dump files being created after a crash is Error Reporting Service set to off. Try to set it to Automatic.

It's already on Auto

 

Check for the files as you suggest and it showed nothing.

Since the last patch I had several freezes and blackscreens which required system restarts. Killing the processes via task manager did not work. No .dmp files where created.

I guess something is not working as inteded with the error detection.

I had crashes while loading a mission and while flying online.

Same with me . Had 2 crashes  Sunday, Feb 21 & 3 crashes Tuesday, Feb 23. All were on Wings of Liberty while flying the mission. All crashes were "The memory could not be read" errors. Registry Edit program was ran and confirmed prior to Feb 21. CrashDumps folder in AppData\Local have been empty on every crash. Can'not help resolve these problems until this starts working.

sorry to hear that, but your system is overclocked and and you have an old set of drivers/ NVIDIA, I have not had any mem crashes once I stopped recording, if you get a crash mem error type usually in the events viewer you can get a report form windows in that area. I have al most the same setup and had no crash for a month now.

Thanks for that information Mastiff. I haven't updated my profile recently. Actually, I've using the nVidia 361.43 drivers and just updated to 361.91 today. Not sure if overclocking is involved, but you never know with the complexity of our computers. I've overclocked from the early access days of BoS and did not experiencing problems until Update 105 or 106 (cannot remember which one). Others have experience the same problem without overclocked systems but I'll do some additional checking on my computer. The biggest problem is the CrashDump program is not working. All of the above posts report that fact. We cannot assist in providing information to resolve this problem until the developers fix the CrashDump program reporting.

I'm getting a pop up with the error but the game is still open until I click the ok button on the windows error message which kills IL2, maybe that's why we don't get the crash report?

On yesterdays FNBMMultiplayer  event all three Stukas Pilots of our flight experienced a memory error at the same time.

This was my Pop UP message:
 

 

      Windows - Fehler in Anwendung       Die Anweisung in 0x0144853a verweist auf Speicher 0xba0ae678. Der Vorgang read konnte nicht im Speicher durchgeführt werden. Klicken Sie auf "OK", um das Programm zu beenden

 

 

 

Time of the crash/ disco 22:14 - 22:17.

Apart from that there where several other unwanted disconnects.

 

I attached the .txt log and the mission. Change transgressor.txt to transgressor.msnbin. Chrashdump not available.

Noticed that the Error Reporting Service start was set to manual. I changed it to automatic. I hope to get some .dmp for you.

Sim froze 2 times yesterday, Saturday, 02/27/2016 on Wings of Liberty server "Storming Stalingrad" mission. Screen froze in flight and the aircraft engine sound continued. Could use "esc" key to exit and could not use "Ctrl+Alt+Del" to close program. After about one minute the sim crashed to desktop. No Windows error message window opened. CrashDump folder is empty. If a track was being recorded, it will show 00:00:00 Start Time and 00:00:00 End Time. Running the track opens a black screen with the message "Game Paused". A squad mate also experience the same type of crash in this mission.

 

This crash scenario began with Update 1.107b and is occurring frequently in Multiplayer. I haven't had this crash problem in Single Player. Previous to Update 1.107b, the sim would crash to desktop and issue a Window Memory access error window.

Not a spam just a confirmation. 

 

I can confirm a lot of freeze here during tournement on Italian Wing server but also on WoL. Not file .dump generated in the dedicated folder.

This problem was not present before the last patch, missions from WoL.

The only way to close the game is to Reboot PC or Disconnect the user from Windows.

Not an IL2.exe error reported but only freeze.

 

The freezes happen at the same time for different players. Nvidia drivers update doesn't help.

 

W10 for several people.

Dear developers, it is possible that some of the problems are due to the limitations of the file system for the length of the file names - 255 characters max. Version 107 has files with a greater length of 256 characters! For example:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\updates\16-01-28\patches\16-01-28_data_graphics_LANDSCAPE_Stalin_w_ROADS_Binary_highways_VB.bin.3990B418F73AFADEA103C9F2ADBC5FB0.68630040.7E625A206FB4D3530FFD55DFFCB50B38.66039840.patch

I had played on the DED normals server for about 10min, got shot down 3 times. Then the map rotated. I left the server, and then connected to the 72AG-DED random server. I picked a FW190 with4x50kg bombs. Took off, flew at low altitude looking for targets. I dropped my bombs when I saw a plane on my six, destroyed nothing, then kept flying around trying to form up with random teammates.

Crash on Wings of Liberty:

Mission Card #: mamaekrygan-wl-107-05

Mission Name: Mamayev Kurgan (Height 102)

Record Date: 2016-03-12 17:42:31 (zero time recorded, track played black screen)

 

I was flying Yak-1 around airfield waiting for squad mate to take off. I cannot remember anything specific that I was doing prior to the crash other than communicating with my squad mate on TeamSpeak. Game crashed and Windows Error Message displayed "IL-2 Sturmovik has stopped working". Flew several missions afterwards on Wings of Liberty mamaekrygan-wl-107-05 and velikieluki-wl-107-06 for about 3 hours with no additional crashes.
