Major Crash on 1st act boss
« on: December 30, 2013, 04:14:19 AM »
Hello. Myself and three friends were reloading the game on the 1st act boss, when the game crashed during the fight. This lead to a message saying to contact you with the error. Furthermore, the sound stuck with that repeating quarter-second loop of the last sounds in the game, and I had to restart my computer to remove it. This happens occasionally for me with certain games that crash.

Looking through error.txt, I think -this- is the error:
Code: [Select]

An additional result of this crash is that our characters desynced. The host had all of his upgrades, while all of our characters had lost all their upgrades, but still had all the combined gold that we gathered before. This means that our last save, right before the boss, left us without upgrades and without the ability to purchase upgrades. I believe you should have all of the vendor types of the highest level from the previous floors, and have them available on the boss level. I don't really see a reason not to do this, and if there's a catastrophic game save loss, people won't be stranded on the boss level without any ability to recover their upgrades.

Furthermore... I had an odd bug where I hosted a game, and then I was unable to join my friend's game until I restarted my computer. It was truly bizarre.
