Just got this error message for the first time in my life. I imagine it is due to the new patches. What the hell is it and what causes it??

In this case, the 'file' it is talking about is probably just a network socket. Probably what happened is SC believed there was network data to read, perhaps a certain number of bytes, and when it went to read it, there were no, or fewer bytes, available than it expected, so it produced this error.

It looks like 1.16.1 but you say it's the newest patch? 1.18-something? What happened before and after the message appeared? Can you reproduce it? What map happened this on?

Could be mistaken, but I'm not aware of any dialog boxes in 1.16.1 that use full non-transparent black backgrounds.

I'm curious if this prevented you from continuing to play the map or just inconvenienced you.

Well yeah it closes the map. But I had a save so started back up and kept playing, didn't get it again until way later on. Seems random. Also I get general crashes these days too. The game is really unstable now thanks to these patches... -.-

Butch -- prob some weird character on a string somewhere or something dumb like that

Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that

Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about

No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?

Zoan -- I'll try Butch's suggestion of running in 32-bit, maybe that will fix it?

It crashes as it does when you use EUD's incorrectly - like it closes starcraft and has the error window pop up with a ticket to send to Blizzard. I know it's not EUDs though since obviously spellsword doesn't use any, so IDK what it is.

Zoan -- Also my KOTK maps all have the nooks and crannies issue when they didn't before; what changed?
