1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Call For Testers: UQM 0.8 Release Candidate, Windows/Mac on: January 03, 2021, 04:05:13 pm
I have now uploaded Release Candidate 2 to https://sourceforge.net/projects/sc2/files/UQM/0.8/ based on the feedback here and elsewhere. It may take a little while for SourceForge to get it out to all its mirrors.

  • When telling SDL2 about entering/leaving text mode, make sure that this only happens on the same thread responsible for drawing OS windows. (This is expected to address a crash seen on some Mac OS machines.)
  • Attempting to enter text from beyond the Basic Multilingual Plane will now insert the Unicode Replacement Character instead of nothing or hanging
  • The first time you edit the Captain or Flagship name while in orbit around a planet, the flashing rectangle will no longer be in the wrong place.
  • Win32 uninstaller will now correctly uninstall Remix Pack 4

Thank you for the update. I can now enter text and press enter without it crashing, but unfortunately I can no longer control the ship at all. Everything else works including the in-game menus, star map, conversations etc. except I can't steer the ship or fire.

I can't repro this on my own Big Sur machine, but my current theory on this is on certain kinds of input configurations at the OS level, SDL2 requires you to be on the graphics/UI thread when you toggle into and out of text entry mode. If that's true, you should *also* crash on any other free-text entry mode, such as renaming the captain, the ship, or any Super Melee team.

I tried renaming my captain and sure enough it crashes there as well. So safe to say your theory is correct and any text input crashes once confirmed.

I have a Finnish keyboard layout (with all other settings set to English), and am on a 2019 16" MacBook Pro (with a multi-touch touchpad). Maybe it's the Finnish keyboard? I am also playing in full-screen mode for what it's worth.

Of note is that the crash only occurs when I press Enter to confirm the save game's name or the captain's name - I can enter the actual text without issue.

Thanks!

Hi! I tested 0.8 on macOS Big Sur 11.0.1, and unfortunately the game crashes every time I try to save. It doesn't matter if I enter a save name or not, it's a 100% crash.

The crash report can be downloaded at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AbX4hZg-3ixfGPYpvorEBtiNbTc3mD5I/view?usp=sharing.
It seems to die on "BUG IN CLIENT OF LIBDISPATCH: Assertion failed: Block was expected to execute on queue [com.apple.main-thread]".
