ERROR: Python AI .. crashed - on Windows 10

#1 Post by tacitus5 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 7:05 pm

After a pause of more than one year I've downloaded and installed the newest (as far as I am informed) FreeOrion_v0.4.6_2016-09-16.49f9123_Win32_Setup.exe.

I'm using Windows 10 now.

An older version of FreeOrion ran fine on Windows 8.1 and exactly the same hardware I'm using now. (But I don't remember which version that was, must be 0.4.4. or maybe 0.4.5.)

Installation went fine, but when I start the game now on Windows 10 I always get one of the following Error messages after choosing "Single Player" -> "Galaxy Setup" - > "OK"

ERROR: Python AI for AI_1 crashed.
ERROR: Python AI for AI_3 crashed.
ERROR: Python AI for AI_5 crashed.

After that Windows closes the FreeOrion program.

Am I doing something wrong or can someone help me to make the program run again on Windows 10?

Can you locate and post all of the .log files from immediately after trying to start a game and getting this issue?

On Windows, they should be located in: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\FreeOrion

Deleting everything in that folder before trying to start the game would be useful, to ensure there's no config issue and no stale log files accidentally included.

Thanks for your answer.

I tried to delete all files in the said folder - that didn't change my problem.
After starting FreeOrion anew it crashed again

Here's the log file regarding that "AI" that crashed this time:

The first problem sems to be

"default file is not present and not writable at location C:\Users\Störmann\AppData\Roaming\FreeOrion\AI\default\config.ini"

Since I didn't put the config.ini in that location, what can I do? Maybe it's a path parsing problem with the non-ASCII ("ö") characters ?

Help will be appreciated

Deleting the files wasn't meant to fix the issue, just to be sure you were posting fresh log files.

Looks like the code that writes the config file needs to be made tolerant to filesystem errors, and may need to do something to convert file path formats when on Windows before using what the API passed it for the config path.

After some testing and googling, Python 2 handing of non-ascii characters in pathes seems rather broken. This might be helpful: https://github.com/pypa/pip/pull/3970/files

@tacitus5, can you install and try again with a recent test build? I think I remember that we already stumbled across this bug and we might have already fixed it, but I'm not sure.

Please report back if that solved the issue for you.

The relevant line at least looks promising: https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/ ... ols.py#L75

Would probably still be good to have some error handling code in case that call fails, though.

Thanks a lot !
The latest test build runs fine and doesn't show the error messages.
Haven't played long enough to confirm that it is without any bugs, but so far everything goes smoothly.
