  • Fixed buffer overflow potential in dSprintf.  Note that this may cause other bugs to appear since some code may rely on the old broken behavior.  Everything seems to be working.
  • Fixed remote crash bug involving invalid connection arguments
  • Fixed LAN crash bug involving malformed GameInfoResponse
  • Fixed issue where you could join a server with a weird/really long name and still pass auth check

Thanks to just:center for information on these bugs. 

r1992
  • Part of the dSprintf overflow fix caused some strange intermittent bugs to appear with chat.  I have reverted this change while I investigate.
  • Removed unintentionally included development batch files in "cache" folder

r1995
  • I think I found the problem, dSprintf overflow fix re-applied

r1997
  • For real this time, maybe.  Thanks for beta testing my game guys.

echoing a string that's more than 4096 characters still crashes the game


  • Fixed remote crash bug involving invalid connection arguments
How'd this work?

I'd rather not explain in detail to all the kiddies how they can crash unpatched servers.

Just having a script line that's > 4096 characters crashes something in yyparse that's beyond my understanding and the debugger doesn't work properly.  Is there a scenario where this can happen without someone writing a script with a huge line?

I vaguely remember RTB and/or Blockland Glass having an issue regarding this, but I can't say for certain.

1991? oh how the years have gone by. it feels like yesterday when it was just 1701 right after the Treaty of Shaders was signed.
