  • -refresh command Server Crash

    This bug does not affect matchmaking games at all, but it does reliably cause some kind of problem with the server in private games with cheats on.

    If you use the command "-item" or "-givebots", and capitalize any letter in the item's name (for instance, typing "item_Power_treads" instead of "item_power_treads"), the item's icon will appear in your inventory, but none of it's stats or abilities will be applied to the unit. In the console, the message "Unknown object spawn! item_*" is printed. This false item is not removable.

    If you then issue the "-refresh" command with this false item introduced into the game, the server will crash (or something, I don't really know what happens). A connection warning appears in the upper right corner of the screen. If you disconnect and attempt to rejoin the game, the message "Disconnected from Server. You must be in a lobby to reconnect." appears.

    As I said, this doesn't really affect match making or regular game play.
