Title: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on November 25, 2017, 12:47:42 pm
It just instantly crashes as i hit join on a server, or as i hit start to sync to a server - what's the cause?

I did previously join and briefly play a bit on CAWS #3 default before downloading additional tracks, but it's now failing on every server, every single time.  It's quite literally unplayable   :'( (on racing - testing works perfectly, game is smooth without issues)

Can I get the logs for whatever unhandled exception is being thrown to figure out if this is on my end somehow, or maybe I have some corrupt data or some such?

I have downloaded:
- all the tracks listed in the server list (aragon, hockenheim, mantorp, misano, nuburgring, oultonpark)
- Bikes and tyres and such using the syncback free profiles posted by some user somewhere
- hornetmax hud for time comparison and input tracking.

No idea what that is, probably not.

EDIT: Looked it up, stands for Large Address Aware - just did the change and tried again, still the same.

At a guess I would say there some wrong things in the wrong folder
You could try moving all bikes, tyres, tracks, stands, riders etc from their respective folders to a safe place. Pick a server you want to join and only add the track, required bikes, stands and tyres needed for that server and see if you can join. If not, then examine closely all the files you have added (some have folders within folders) and make sure all pkzs have their respective files eg tyre pkzs have only tyre files in them. If you can join, then systematically add tracks, bikes and tyres checking online it all works until it doesn't. Then the problem should be obvious.

Thanks Syd, sounds like this problem is due to the mod files then - that's a relief.  I'll throw everything out and start with a clean installation, add things slowly as you suggested.  Will report back with any information deemed useful for future reference.  Cheers!

I acknowledge, each time you came last night, you disappeared right after and it lagged so much, it made me crashed (on the grass not the game). 4 or 5 times i think.
Same things happend to me. When "Core.exe" crash that means yours folders are probably not all where they are supposed to be. It's not obvious but trying hard and sneaking everywhere in the forum will give you the answer. (had the "missing bike" too at the beginning, then went to Core.exe crash...)
And now i understand why you were never answering my question in the message part.
See you !!

Each time I fail to connect I cause the rest to crash?  Oh lawd I must have pissed off a bunch of people these past 2 days then xD  That's some really weird net code shenanigans.

I've tried like 6 times at least with Tor Poznan on some spanish server (non dedicated) and had no luck - those guys must have wanted to seek me out and kill me at this point  :-X

I updated drivers and restarted PC and now can't launch the game - trying to figure out what the heck is going on - modding shouldn't be this complex  :-\

No, no, it didn't crash the game, my bad, language problem, sorry  :-\

Each time you came, it gives a lag in the server or the game, and it freezes the screen for half a second but when you are in a curve, the result is you are off the line and fall down... So, yes, that was annoying but i know you're not doing it to bug people, don't worry !

Yeah, cheers and sorry!  :-[

I did have success on the other hand - managed to pop in to IMT - WorldSBK 17 #1, aragon circuit.  Had someone pop in do a couple laps while i proceeded to clean every corner with my bike's fairings.  Anyhoo what I did was delete the my documents profile folder, setup everything again, removed the tracks, kept all the bikes (needed to access default as well) and then added aragon. 

Tried joining a Tor Poznan V0.6 server but that never worked out - I don't know what to do with the folder contained within tor poznan which contains an NDS file.  Do I leave everything as is?

Post by: speedfr on November 25, 2017, 07:39:31 pm
i think you have to put both directory into \Tracks, one is Tor Poznan_NDS with his own files in and the other one will be Tor Poznan with his own files inside.
Other way to try to say it : both directory have to be in \Tracks so at the end, you'll get one \Tracks\Tor Poznan and one \Tracks\Tor Poznan NDS

Better safe than sorry, in the attached-file, you'll see that for Imola, Assen and Hockenheim.

@Luponius : so i wanted to know how and if it works, so i downloaded all the SSP bikes and Tor Poznan, and it works.
I hope i didn't bother the guy that was there running his practice...  :-[

And here is a screen of the directory as it is and working :

Post by: Luponius on November 25, 2017, 10:54:32 pm
Thanks speed, so you just have one single folder in this case for it to work, right?  You simply extracted it in place and had the SSP bikes downloaded as well and that's it.  I'm going to retry it when I get the chance.
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: speedfr on November 25, 2017, 11:02:00 pm
yes one folder and a subfolder (\No Dynamic Surface TRP file) and ALL the SSP.  ;)


Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on November 25, 2017, 11:08:42 pm
Yeah, same but crashes.  The server that I could play on is now also giving me core errors.  Almost as though it's intermittent...

Just tried to go back there and ... "Core.exe" crash...
I don't get it  >:(
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on November 26, 2017, 12:12:37 am
And then I got in to a server, did several laps with another player and then when everybody left i quit the game and added a few tracks, trying to go back on the empty server to practice, it gave me core crashes once again.

You probably gonna laugh but, i managed to create a directory called Tor Poznan v0.6_NDS and then i copied all the file from the non_NDS directory. Then you delete the non_NDS .trp file, replace it by the _NDS.trp file, even edited the ini file to change the names inside, modified all the Tor Poznan v0.6 files name with adding _NDS and then i was ready to go... The guy cut the server down  ::) ::)
We'll see later...

Ah! Damn that's a hell of a coincidence!  I've gone into testing some tracks and bikes, and when i try to pick the SSP600 category or STK1000 category it core crashes even on single player.  I redownloaded the latest present on the bike mod and they still had the same effect.  Not sure what's causing this, and I can't figure out if the logs are pasted anywhere at all...  Really want to get into the first person nurburgring server :(

I'm on Hockenheim server right now and its fine.  :D
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on November 26, 2017, 03:03:01 pm
Great news, in my case it's most definitely the bike categories.  Selecting STK1000 or SSP600 even on testing (single player) crashes the game.  Does this happen to you, speed?  Not sure what I'm missing, I got latest from the bike mod.

I have no idea, i'll try later and come back to tell you but yesterday night on Hockenheim, GP500, played with JulianShips31 and have good runs except when the server crashed and i didn't know it so my last 3 laps are off and sure enough, that's when i was around 2.14.xxx  >:(

I'm re-downloading the game, redownloaded syncback import scripts and currently rerunning the import, used CCleaner to clean my directories and hoping that's going to have some sort of impact.

Just went through a spat where I could use GP-Bikes in Testing Mode but as soon as I tried to join an online session it would give me a core.exe. I have all up to date tracks / bikes / tyres but it did not seem to make any difference. I had six servers running on another machine and it didn't make any difference, they all gave a core. Even the CAWS servers were a no go.

I deleted C:\Program Files[x86]\GP-Bikes files but left the files in the user directory. I then swapped out my video card since every time I blinked it was changing the driver files on me. I then rebooted, installed new video drivers, and reinstalled GP-Bikes. After copying all of the tracks / bikes / types back to where they belonged everything went back to normal.

Damn gremlins...

Hey, yeah some mystical gremlins going on right now, I did very recently reseat my gfx card and update its drivers, I reinstalled GP-bikes as well and have since done a cleanup.  I might be due for a format soon since I need to set my newly bought SSD as the main one so that might be the next thing to try, but the game so far keeps coring out left, right and center with no idea what it might be.

It does however, seem to core out on STX1000 and SSP600 bikes the moment I try to load them (even on testing) I redownloaded everything yesterday and am due to retry them today, having moved the installation from d:\games\gp bikes to c:\program files(x86)\gp bikes

Maybe that fixes something.  If not, format is next I guess *shrug*  ::)

Hey !

Still trying to enter Tor Poznan but after bike selection, it crashes. I have no clue.
And my files are in the PF (x86) directory. So i guess its not the solution...

Hey Speed, I was able to enter a Tor Poznan at one point I think, or maybe I'm wrong - I can't honestly remember, I do know that attempting to load specific bike categories like STX1000 and SSP600 causes a crash pretty much instantly - those bike groups definitely have some problems, Even if it's just one of them or a recent repackaging caused something to corrupt, it's causing core to seize up each time.

Do those categories load for you, Speed?  STX1000 and SSP600?
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on November 29, 2017, 10:52:43 pm
Solved : The issue is I was missing tyre files for the STX1000 and SSP600 bikes and it was causing the game to core out.  It still happens randomly but that's just because the game is in beta  :-X

This solution should have been propagated to the database from where the bike mods are downloaded so just pull down the files again using syncback free and it should be all set.  All servers seem accessible to me now.

Hey Luponius,

to answer your question, i can't load (get Core.exe crash) when it matters about STK1000. But SSP600 is fine (did a run yesterday night with 2 players and did some laps with one, no problem.)  ;D
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: Luponius on December 03, 2017, 03:40:23 pm
Your STK problem might somehow be related to the same issue i had - recheck the tyre database and see if there are any updates for STK1000 for you ;)
Title: Re: core.exe crashed every time i try to join a server
Post by: speedfr on December 03, 2017, 04:03:11 pm
Thanks Luponius,

i've notice yes every time STK1000 is involved, i get a crash.
And i checked my tyres already, i have them all, same size, same names... Maybe i re-dl the STK1000 ones and i'll give it a try.
But i'm stuck to the SSP600 with Kerazo, had a lot of fun with this category.

But thank you anyway. And i'm into making my handlebar now cuz joystick + Edtracker Pro is not enough at all !! And its so odd to ride a joystick...
