[v19 Stable, through WINE] Crash when using soldier's inventory during battle

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I've recently installed v19 Stable through WINE (on Linux) but it keeps crashing when closing a soldier's inventory during battle. It seems to be random but has a high incidence, I can sometimes open a soldier's inventory, make changes (for example: equip a medkit) and return to the field without problems but roughly half of the time it will just crash to desktop. It's as bad as me not being able to finish a single battle so far - I haven't tried too often, 4 or 5 crash sites, but that's what stopped me from playing every time.

It happens on different battlegrounds (reloading a save means I get different UFOs, etc) and on different games (I started new games to test if it was somehow related to something in the particular save). It seems to be save-independent, reproducible by just playing a battle and accessing the inventory a couple of times.

Does anyone else have this problem?

(I know there is a similar topic about the inventory screen but that one seems to relate to the geoscape soldier inventory screen in the base.)

Thanks!

I'm running it on Win 7 - have no problems with combats at all. Using inventory all the time. Have about 30-40 crash sites cleared.

It's possible this is a wine related issue then..

Usually I wouldn't post bugs for software I run through wine but Xenonauts relies on it for its Linux version officially. If these is any info needed about the crash let me know and I'll provide what I can.

What distro of Linux are you on? I have tested Mint, Red Hat and Gentoo and I have not seen the same issue. Also, which desktop are you using, which version of wine are you using?

Slackware on KDE with wine-1.7.0

I don't think the distribution or the DE has anything to do with this, it's probably something with v1.7.0 of wine. Also, I may also have been extremely unlucky: while this happened again a few times, the frequency lowered drastically. I'll try to use a previous wine version, maybe.
