40c - Crash in Jobs List
« on: August 27, 2008, 04:45:37 pm »

I used the jobs menu to "zoom to job" and it crashed the game.  I don't recall why, but it popped up my zonealarm warning message right at that moment saying that "DFORT wants to access some.dll" which I clicked "allow" for. That has happened before without incident.

Some info on the job: It was a suspended job to place a hatch cover.  I think the hatch in question actually was placed quite a long time earlier, because I remember getting a "job canceled" message about a hatch cover, right after the dwarves had finished placing the hatch cover.  The only possible weirdness I can think of, is that somehow the dwarf placing the hatch had to move before he was done, because a mason arrived to build a wall in the only space adjacent to the hatch.

Sorry I can't be more helpful, I didn't save the windows error message and I doubt I can recreate the canceled, finished job.

Er, I can't remember if the job was "cancelled" or "suspended" I do remember that it was in red font, so whichever red font goes with, that's the status the hatch job had in the jobs list.
