Crash when clicking on a server

Postby General Ivan » Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:44 pm

It seems weird for this to happen to me now. I've been playing on this for over 2 years and it seems to be buggy on me only now. Every time i try connecting to a server (be it G6 or AKE or the standalones of muricon or VSj, or even a client server) or even try starting up a new game, the game ends up suddenly crashing coming up with the message: "Defcon has stopped working".

I've already tried asking for solutions on steam and i think someone advised me to try support, by that i figured he meant here so...here i am. Anybody got any ideas to try out.

Also tried looking at the blackbox in the folder and found this:

=========================
= BLACK BOX REPORT =
=========================

Defcon 1.61 STEAM built Dec 1 2011
Date 19:50, 1/5/2014

ERROR : 'Assertion failed : 'g_app->GetClientToServer()->m_clientId == clientId'

..\..\source\defcon.cpp
line number 348'

=========================
= STACKTRACE =
=========================

retAddress = 00416895
retAddress = 00000001


'Assertion failed'? Maybe it has something to do with this?
Also checked the debug and decided to copy it on here too in case anybody saw something aboriginal:

II know when you don't have audio hooked up the game wont work and crashes. But this sounds a little different.

I did wear headphones, was fine in the past. Also mark plays without a headset of any kind and i have also tried without headphones, so that cant be it.
