Summary0000932: Assert when Capella goes nova
DescriptionWhen Capella goes Nova, I get ASSERTION FAILED: "Viewer_obj" at freespace2/freespace.cpp:2320 if I am not facing the sun when I jump out (jumping triggers the supernova sequence before time runs out) If I am facing the sun, nova procedes normally as I jump out. If time runs out before I jump, nova also normal.
TagsNo tags attached.

That was weird. Summary should be Assert when Capella goes nova, Severity should be crash. I'm running debug built from CVS from today.


Shade (developer)

Seen something similar reported once before. Thought it was just a fluke then but two reports warrants looking it. Still pretty well into the supernova code so I'll take a look at it.

Is this still an issue? I haven't been able to recreate it so I wasn't sure.

This is getting closed this weekend unless there is some update on the status of the bug.

I just removed the Assert(). I was able to reproduce it reliably and after tracing through the code a bit I realized that the Assert() isn't even needed there.
