#164 Multiplayer Build / Combat / SitRep Hotlink Crash


I started a multiplayer game (host and joiner on same
machine at Player 1 moved its home fleet
to the system of the player 2. Player 2 built a Mark
I. When the Mark I was built, there was a combat,
which player 2 won. After this combat, player 2 got a
sitrep message about this combat being won, and about
the new Mark I being built. Clicking the hotlink to
the Mark I crashes player 2's client. This crash
doesn't happen for just builidng a ship and clicking
its resulting hotlink, or for combats that occur not on
the turn and located of the ship being built, as far as
I can tell. The crash doesn't occur until the sitrep
link is clicked.

This save demonstrates the problem:


End both players' turns, then click the sitrep link to
the new Mark I in the relevant player's sitrep the next

    I've had this happen again in a multiplayer game after
    building a Mark I, but when there was not a combat on the
    same turn. There were other sitrep messages that turn,
    however. This save is the turn it happens:


    Just find the sitrep entry for the player who built the Mark
    I, and click on the link to the Mark I.
