Map Randomly Crashes whilst being played Online

Hello and sorry for the long thread name.

Ever since few days ago (can't remember and pinpoint the exact date) my map started to freeze and eventually crash during gameplay. The weirdest thing is that the map does not crash when being played solo (aka if you run it through World Editor ''Test Map'') or if you play it alone online.

The map crashes only if people play with me online, and usually around 20th minute or 12th minute. Now, I'm not sure what's causing this, but I did my best and basically fixed every leak I could think of to prevent this from happening.

Whilst the map crashes, I noticed that Warcraft 3 Reforged uses around 4gb of ram, I'm not sure if this is normal but this is the latest thing I've seen going on when it crashes. I would gladly test my map by turning off one trigger per game, but unfortunately as I've said the problem does not represent itself unless someone is playing with me :(

I'm also getting this message everytime I open up World Editor ''Failed to load Enviroment Map for tileset K'' and it's specifically when I'm opening my map (attachment below). I did some tweaking, disabling one by one category in triggers every time I host map online to play with others. So far I covered a lot, there are few categories left that I haven't checked and the map still crashes unfortunately.


What I did that could potentially cause the crash
  • Hosting the game with an icon before the title, something like '' ️ Defend the King''. - Tried hosting without the ''/'' or the icon, still crashes.
  • Replaced original Music ''ArthasTheme'' with my own theme. - Tried to restore the original file by importing it from ''New Map'' and using custom Music, didn't help.
  • Disabled my antivirus fully during gameplay - Did not work
  • Fixed most of the leaks - apparently that didn't work either


I'm attaching my map in hopes for someone to take a look at it. Now, I know it will take a lot of time for you to inspect this, and the best thing I can offer you is donation via Paypal for your help!



Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,
Crusher.

I recall being able to play on one PC with multiple wc3 instances running at the same time, so I could play in LAN with myself. If that option still exists, it may be a good idea.

( https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/warcraft3/t/multiple-clients-of-reforged/21630 )
Some other ideas:
1. does the game crash in non-reforged WC3?
2. do you create units/locations outside the map area?
3. do you have some glitched (imported?) models?
4. Do you use GetLocalPlayer()?
5. Do you have some code that only gets run/runs a little differently in multiplayer?
6. did you google for crashes here on thehelper.net? Perhaps that can give you some ideas of what's happening.
7. Any slowdown before the crash?
8. Any kind of conversions (H2I) commonly used in ancient triggers?
9. Using game cache/saved games/other features that don't work well in MP?

Failing that, can you export the triggers and post them here as text? I don't have WC3 installed anymore. If it's too much code, you can upload the code of functions that you think are relevant.

    Have been talking to a childhood friend who is an Artist and is interested in doing some game music. He has a studio in his house. Yes!

    Going to try and get my friend into the homebrew game indie market he is real interested

    Does reforged require the port forwarding? Is that even still a thing?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not think that is a thing anymore
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Battle.net is different now and I do not think they are using the same network code
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am sure they are not

    Lately, news aren't as enticing as they seemed. Or maybe I'm getting old and desensitized.
  • jonas jonas:
    I think news are more serious recently
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    More serious doesn't necessarily mean it's more interesting. :(
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I find that news.google.com has lots of interesting science stuff going on and the Space X stuff with Starship is super cool too
  • The Helper The Helper:
    plus the boring company and physics stuff happening now but I am more into the science now but there is still some crazy news I see out there using Reddit as a news source though and aggregate services like news.google and stuff and put AP in there I always read the news and yes sometimes it is not as interesting as others
  • The Helper The Helper:
    At some point I am going to look at Xenforo and see if it integrates with Hubspot at all. Would love to look at forum under a full marketing account in Hubspot since I have access to that stuff with my current gig
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Kind of surprised it wouldn't have its own forum product offering.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    That said, when Blizzard switched forum software, they went with Discourse, not xenForo.
  • jonas jonas:
    I think news.google shows you personalized news
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    any of the peeps in here run youtube channels? Figure of all the peeps in this forum, got to be some other geeks like me with channels
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I can say I've uploaded a YouTube video.

    I can say I know someone that uploaded a youtube video :)
  • jonas jonas:
    A friend of mine has a channel where he uploads some of the crazy machines he has built. Like when he plugged an electric motor into a 3d printed gearbox, attached it to his bycicle and then drove 50mph with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You should post a link to his channel in General Discussion I would definitely check it out
