Summary0001853: Using a mod can result in standalone lockup if a non-mod misssion is selected
DescriptionThis is probably more of a feature that's needed but since it causes a crash I'm putting it in here.

Been running fsport-mediavps as a mod on a standalone since the 3.1.1 patches came out. Was working just fine and I even saw a few games get played. Today it was locked up solid. I was able to close the interface by hitting the x but still had to terminate the process manually. What caused this appears to be someone selecting a FS2 mission and it not being able to find the ship and weapons needed to run that mission.

I tried removing the mission folder from the fs2\data directory but it still found the ones in the VPs so that's no help.
Additional Information3.6.10 r5015. FSPort 3.1.1 FSPort-MediaVPs 3.1.1 and the 3.6.10 MediaVPs all clean installs and up to date.

Not expecting a feature to be added as the fix just something to prevent the server from locking up.
TagsNo tags attached.

Okay, I've committed what I think is the fix for this. Please try the next nightly build that includes revision 5049.

It's not pretty (host kind of just gets dumped) but it does keep the server from crashing. So I'd say this is resolved. A feature will eventually be needed to handle this kind of thing but well that's for requesting on the forums.

Yeah, keeping the server from crashing was definitely the more important issue here - Host can always rejoin it but if the server goes down it could be hours before it's restarted. Rest is just cleanup in my book.

Since the ticket was just for the fix, I'm marking this resolved. Feature can be added later.
