Hey there,

while running the beta tests for our game, we noticed some sporadic crashes.

In the acklog.txt we always find the message:

Malfunction W1301

e.g.

Malfunction W1301: specBump.fx: Can't open file

Either the game crashes right after that or a bit later after some more files couldn't be opened.

All those files have been opened hundreds or thousand of times before in the game.
There seems to be something in the code that leeds to this behaviour, but we can't figure out what it might be.

Is there anything known to this issue? Any hints what we have to search for?

Best regards,
Sascha.

Maybe the same file was accessed by another software or process at the same time.

The game only runs once and there's no other software accessing this file.

Is it possible that the engine accesses this file multiple times itself? The shader is assigned to several Entities so each of them accesses the file when it is created.

Also after this error occurs neither "file_save" nor "file_open" are working anymore.

The engine won't access the same file twice, even when assigned to multiple entities. But if file functions don't work when this error was encountered, it might be a more global access problem unrelated to that particular file. It can be any file then. Does it only happen on one particular machine or on several PCs?

We had this issue at least on two different PCs.
