  • Replays Crash on Laptops When Jumping to a Different Time

    Basically as title states. When you want to jump from whatever the current time is in the game to a point later of in the past, DotA 2 crashes. I can only vouch for this happening with laptops since my friends and I play on laptops of varying strengths and DotA 2 crashes for all of us when you try to jump around in a replay.
    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

      I have the problem only for some replays. I play on desktop.

        It's happening to me too. This definetly isnt a laptop bug but just a bug in general. I've only tried on 1 replay since the update but whenever I tried to skip the time ahead the game would freeze and crash.

            Happens on desktop too, still as of today.

            Scrub along the timeline and eventually Dota will crash.

              I have similar but not identical behavior (perhaps independent? I doubt it though).

              When I seek to a different time in a replay, it works. But if I continue to seek to different times, it will eventually crash.
              The problem feels like something like memory fragmentation or progressive decay, since it pretty much never happens the first time, but it could be luck.

              Do you have an automated transmission method of the minidumps, or an official submission method?

              I'm quite surprised you don't get stacktraces by default on crash. These are all access violations. I'm assuming a bad pointer by the time of crash.
              Incidentally this is on a 16GB desktop with an nvidia gt640 w/2GB.
