Quote from: jamespetts on July 29, 2020, 01:10:56 PMThank you for the report. The bridge building code is largely unchanged from Standard - does anyone know whether this issue is unique to Extended or whether it can be reproduced in Standard?
Quote from: kierongreen on July 29, 2020, 01:39:43 PMI can't seem to reproduce this in Standard
Quote from: kierongreen on July 29, 2020, 08:06:45 PMHave had a quick look at the fixes and I would be a bit wary of these - it seems like they might point to an underlying issue in the code elsewhere that differs from Standard and this could be leading to as yet unnoticed errors elsewhere in Extended. I'm suspecting that because Standard (and Extended) have managed so long without the checks in a section of code that goes back probably a decade. Also keeping code like this the same helps in keeping the versions as in sync with each other as possible.
Quote from: jamespetts on July 29, 2020, 08:20:16 PMI am afraid that I am at a loss as to what the relevant difference between the codebases is here; you may also want to check the specific case to which I refer above to see whether this does provoke a crash in Standard.
Quote from: kierongreen on July 29, 2020, 08:37:56 PMI have without success in creating a crash in Standard unfortunately (or possibly fortunately)! Have tried to trace it a little in Extended but likewise can't see the obvious cause.
Quote from: kierongreen on July 30, 2020, 01:19:34 AMBit of a prolonged process but currently seem to have identified that the error started occurring in August 2019 around time changes were happening to code to allow fords over some rivers but it's difficult to pinpoint exactly when
Quote from: jamespetts on July 30, 2020, 10:32:13 AMInteresting, thank you. I was greatly hampered in my ability to look into this by not understanding the intent of the Standard code, as discussed in my previous post.
