I figured I’d make a thread about this so that I don’t have to keep posting information in random places.
Ever since update 102 or 103, I and other GMac players have been having issues with Multiplayer crashes. I’m able to join a server- everything goes normally, and I spawn in the server and hear people talking / see them walking around. After a few seconds, though, the game hangs then crashes, always with the same sorts of errors in the crashlog (replicated at the end of this post).
From checking out the log and testing, it seems that these crashes are related to GMac’s handling of HTML, and that these crashes can be reliably provoked by attempting to load any form of HTML in-game- MotDs, some addon ‘credits’ screens, manuals, etc. Until an update to fix this is released or a workaround is found, server administrators can likely allow GMac players to connect by disabling any HTML in any plugins they’ve added.
