0003762: Crash on moving (k) cursor over certain spatters with TrueType (long names?)
After killing a large uninvited guest like a minotaur, the game crashes whenever I use the main cursor (k) to look at a certain tile around the corpse, usually drenched in the creature's blood (although even when the blood disappears the bug still remains.) This happened twice with minotaurs, and once with an outside-wandering spider creature that I can't remember the name of. The game carries on fine as long as I don't move the (k) cursor over that tile. After a while the bug seems to go away (long after the corpse has disappeared.) I'm also using Ironhand's v0.494 tileset.
Kill uninvited guest like a minotaur. Move (k) cursor over one of the 8 tiles surrounding the corpse, one causes CTD. Using Ironhand v0.494 tileset.

Are you using TrueType? Does the crash still occur if you move the save into a vanilla install of DF?

2010-12-01 07:03   
Yes, I have been using TrueType; and no, the bug does not occur in a vanilla install of DF v31.18.
2010-12-01 08:30   
Hmm, does it still crash if you just disable TrueType in your custom install?
2010-12-01 08:38   
Nope, turning TT off seems to fix the bug.
2010-12-01 08:44   
Thanks for investigating. Does the minotaur have an unusually long name or anything like that?
2010-12-01 08:51   
No, I don't think so. And I don't think it's limited to minotaur blood, as I originally thought, since I just had a battle with goblins and trolls and some of their bloody remains are also causing tiles to CTD - but there's nothing really consistent about which blood spatters or smears cause it. The only thing I can really observe is that the tiles seem to have five or six different blood spatters on them, and the blood owners (mostly dwarven) appear to have rather long names.
2010-12-10 07:54   
I notice this happening with what seems to be certain diacritic characters, depending on the font used. The problem is associated with viewing blood spatters most often, but that's only because that's the only time during normal run-of-play in which the game is asked to render the individual names of certain creatures with TrueType fonts.

With respect to this, I have found the open-source Gentium font best for handling nearly all the characters that it's asked to display, with only very few characters that trigger the "Nonexistent texture data" crash. However, there is still at least one character that even it crashes with, which I can narrow down to a certain page on the list of blood attached to a tame hoary marmot in my fortress. I'll attach a screenshot of the non-TrueType version as soon as I'm able.
2010-12-18 07:34   
I also have this issue. Fresh DF, fresh world, Ironhand charset (current newest), and using "k" while in run-mode (as opposed to being paused) causes reproducible instant crash.

Turning off TrueType fixes the issue.

I am adding this for the sole purpose of contributing more info since in my case, the crash occurred with (v) view unit, rather than (k) look around.

I received this crash with 31.18 and .19, on mac and windows. It happens immediately upon viewing the inventory of a specific dwarf. Turning off TTF resolved it. The font I was using was Anonymous Pro Bold Italic from http://www.ms-studio.com/FontSales/anonymouspro.html [^] (it's a free font).

The dwarf's inventory:

(warthog leather trousers), Lower body
(giant cave spider silk dress), Upper body
(elk bird leather robe), Upper body
(pig tail fiber cloak), Upper body
(cat leather cap), Head
(pig tail fiber hood), Head
(cheetah leather left glove), Left hand
(leopard leather left glove), Left hand
(pig tail fiber left mitten), Left hand
(cheetah leather right glove), Right hand
(cheetah leather right glove), Right hand
(pig tail fiber right mitten), Right hand
*spiny dogfish leather waterskin*, (giant cave spider

In vanilla, the display cuts off there.

ETA: The above mentioned Genitum font allowed me to view the inventory without crash, and the complete text of the final entry is "*spiny dogfish leather waterskin*, (giant cave spider silk dress)"

I am experiencing a crash when attempting to loo'k' at a huge pool of contaminants. Some blood pools belong to dwarves with titles awarded by kills, making them a few characters longer than the rest. The crash also occurs intermittently when attempting to 'v'iew certain dwarves, though I am not certain if that is also due to contaminants or, as bloodtoes shows, simply a long entry due to stacked equipment.

My initial belief is that it was caused purely by fixed width fonts. This held true when using AnonymousPro-Bold (linked by bloodtoes), my default CourierNew-Bold, and additionally FixedSys provided by default in Windows. It did not crash when using Ironhand's Liberation, DF's original Droid, or Ebrima (a random non-fixed width provided by Windows). However, I found that I could view the pool of contaminants even with the fixed width fonts if I did not maximize the DF window (through double clicking the title bar). Testing further, I found that if I left DF to determine the size of the window (WINDOWED:YES, GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDX:0, GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDY:0), I could view the pool with any kind of font. If I resized the window in any way (manually dragging the borders, WINDOWED:NO, GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDX:80, GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDY:64, maximizing the window via title bar), viewing the pool with a fixed width font would cause a crash. Turning off graphics (but leaving TTF enabled and using any kind of font) would allow me to loo'k' at the pool without crashing, even if I changed the size of the game window.

I fixed this some time ago; it was a case of signed (char) overflow in array dereferencing. It'll be fine next release.
