    Second race in a row after the latest UI update we experience weird dedicated server crashes after switching the sessions.

    Can't say at all what could cause these problems. First time it was when we're restarted the warmup from Race session and second time it was when we switched quickly from Practice to Warmup.

    In Wednesday just after new update was released we had similar problems at GT3 race with Hockenheim track from workshop. Today we had those problems with Tatuus PM-18 and Sonoma track.
    In Wednesday we had MOD files from the older build but for today's race I did new MOD files. There was no difference unfrotunately.

    Does anyone have those problems?

    We had pretty much the same happen with the rc version of the dedi, first time server crashed after about 1 and a half hours, then about every 20 minutes or so, switched back to the non rc version and been good since (touch wood).

    We too have had these issues tonight, after being on the old ui for the last year or more with no issues we decided to make the switch after the new ui update, tonight was our first league night with the new ui and we didn't even get one single race done because the server would crash every time we switched session and we tried for over 2 hours with multiple server resets.

    Highly disappointed to say the least.

    I can report a server crash too, very unusual.
    And the server has not been updated after the "UI update" (since it was not required).

    Yes multiple times when moving sessions. Quite annoying.

    Maybe it's usefull to post wich plugins you're using. We had once the problem that an old plugin which uses old visual c++ runtimes causes server crashes after to many incidents on the server. So for e.g. someone hit alot of cones ...

    Sorry I can't remember the name of the plugin.

    We’ll be hammering our (non-updated) server on Wednesday with our ten-minute sprint races at SR4L (SimRacers4Life) and will report back if not already fixed….

    <edit>We have tried manually advancing sessions from the client and Dedi ends, restarting weekends etc. - no issues so far, but in both test cases, only one user online at the time.

    Nothing specific was installed before and after the latest main build update and we had about 100 races without any problems with dedi

    Same behavior here - 4 server crashed in a row trying to start a race. We also saw the crash happen when switching sessions - usually moments after switching to race.

    That was a few days ago. We rolled the server build back the next morning and have not seen the behavior since.

    Not running any plugins. The car/track we were running had been working fine for 4 practice sessions and 3 races, then started crashing on us. 12 clients connecting all on LAN, if that matters.

    Thanks,
    Joel

    I also had the same problem.
    The problem is when you change session the CPU goes up to 100% and immediately crashes.
    On the old build this didn´t happen.

  16. Anyone of you have tracelogs from those crashes please?
    If anything put in info as well, plugins used, sessions where it happened etc. The more the better. Thanks
    Oh yeah and @ me if you add tracelogs please, so i can add it to bug tracker.
