Game crashes when starting the game

Post by Budka11 »

Hi, after i downloaded Wesnoth from Steam, game had worked correctly but then, after few weeks game started to crash when started. I had tried to reinstall and then downloaded it from official site. Game seemed to work correctly but now it is doing same things like in the past. No error shown, just crashes, everytime in different moment. Sometimes on starting sometimes on main menu. Please help, I really love this game, I would be dissapointed if it couldn´t work anymore.
Thanks
Cheers

Is this log from a time where Wesnoth crashed? Also, can you provide the build information?

Yes, today I thought the game is going to work but after few minutes it crashed when playing the game, the log stays the same but I can give you a log from today, but it just shows one more sentence. Also I took a photo of some routes to the game and information with version and some other things, so I send you all that I have.

In the lower left corner of the build information window there's a button that will copy all that information to the clipboard - please click that button and then paste it here.

I don't see anything that looks like an indication of why it would crash unfortunately. If the crash happens randomly for no consistent reason, there's no error message displayed before the crash, and nothing in the log file after the crash has happened, then there isn't enough information to know what's going on.

Yeah, it is quite a bummer that it doesn´t show anything, but it is still weird, sometimes when I restart the computer it works if I am not staying too long in menu, but if I stay in the menu it crashes and I cannot launch it then. Reinstalation help for a while but now I am afraid that I lost all my progress if I reinstall it.
Thanks though for your help
