MINETEST - BOOKS A SOURCE OF BUGS

by virmanam » Sat Aug 12, 2017 14:50

Hi. I would like to talk about an bug that has this game - minetest. This error causes that the game freeze, and can't be playable. I'm going to talk about books mod. It allows infinite strings of text to be copied in a book - and this will cause crash the game.

So many players would have this issue, and I need an answer about how to fix this problem. Thanks.

I think you will need to provide more details, such as...
1. which version of Minetest you're playing (0.4.15, 0.4.16 stable, 0.4.16 dev, etc)?
2. did you install Minetest from the official website (which version of download) or build it yourself from Git?
3. what OS are you playing on (windows, mac, android, ios, ubuntu, debian, etc)?
4. what device you're playing on (desktop, laptop, phone, tablet, etc) ?
5. is there anything weird in debug.txt ?

though, how can you copy infinite string in that book? I'm more curious on that...

It's true. Although the books that may be a issue for our server are the placed books from Home Decor. I'm assuming it's not a default book as there was a p.o.s. in the logs. I had quickly checked the logs as the server had crashed. Although there was no error message, the last action was someone wrote into a book. From what I can tell it was a huge part, if not all... of a Satanic Bible. Or at least it looked like one. The amount of text was staggering. So even though there wasn't a error message, I do believe the OP is correct. Big books can crash servers.

I'
I was playing my single player game, and yes, is minetest 0.4.16. There are some glitches that developers must fix. This game is extremely buggy.

Hi! The issue you report has already been fixed but not yet released.

It would be great if you could report any glitches when you notice them, including any details to reproduce them.

If you're able to compile Minetest it would be really helpful if you could help test pull requests before they're merged, particularly if they're player facing (eg: movement)

I'm not sure what you mean by this. To fix bugs we need to know about them and why they happen. To stop bugs being created, we need people to test things we're going to add. Both of these require good communication from our users. It's a good way to help (next to actually fixing bugs)

If the minetest software contains these bugs, so there's a problem in it. But at least you said you've fixed it, but you haven't released. Thanks for your help.
