Delirium & game crashes

Hi all, I am experiencing a strange problem. I've got like ~3 game crashes (like this one) in my whole D2 playing experience. Until today. I've seen this crash already five times during last ~2 hours and I am beginning to suspect my merc's newly created "Delirium" - it is the only change I've made in this character's setup and everything was fine before.

Did anybody notice similar problem? I'll now swap the helm for something else and will see if the crashes persist or disappear.

It is not so big issue when running RoF(~20 seconds a run), at least if there's no HR lying on the ground, but I'd hate to see this happen for example when questing, after tediously clearing a long way to the next waypoint etc:(

I have had issues with it whilst running WSK, never outside though. But I haven't really used delirium elsewhere all that much (Pits maybe?). Naab also reported some issues with Delirium crashes whilst running Baal with his barbarian.

I've never had this issue with my Delirium and I've used it to play through entire difficulties, but usually on my characters own head. Maybe it's a merc related thing? Or some wierd combination with some other skill/item you have?

It's just a theory, but it might happen when the merc gets transformed into a fetish in the middle of his jab attack. Jab is uninterruptable, and fetishes can't jab, so the game probably doesn't know what to do and crashes as the result.

I didn't experience crashes with Delirum, but I only used it on a sorceress. It was also quite a long time ago so it's possible I simply do not remember, although if it was as bad as you say, I belive I'd remember.

Thanks for the replies!

I've replaced the Delirium with a Vampire Gaze and everything seems fine so far.

@Low Key: The merc is wearing an Insight and an upped Duriel's Shell. Hopefully the problem arises only in combination with the Insight, but I doubt it. I don't like the idea of wasting an Ist rune and actually not using the helm.

Yep crashed my game on my both baal runners in WW barb and bearsorc.Its really annoying since i really like confuse cause it fastens my runs like 10 sec average:S. It didnt happen as often as yours did though Krovak.Like once in an hour, i guess it matters how much your merc gets hit and transforms to fetish.

I have not experienced any problems with my A2 merc wearing delirium and insight. But since he has 13k def, he is not exactly hit a lot.

Re: Delirium & game crashes

Is anyone who is having crashes playing on a Mac? I use Delirium a lot on both A5 and A2 mercs and I've never had any problems, but I play on Macs primarily.

Edit: update- I have been playing with a Delirium and getting game crashes on a Mac, regularly enough to be quite an annoyance. So it seems to be a cross-platform bug, unfortunately.

Worth resurrecting this thread as I believe Flayed One is onto something:

Re: Delirium & game crashes

On characters using Delirium I have experienced this error:

(Unrecoverable internal error 0019f78c) failed at (1437)


It tends to be most noticeable on classes where there are no other meat shields around to absorb the attacks instead of the merc (e.g. on my Ranged Enchantress or Baal Running Sorceress). My Druid had enough summons that it never occurred when playing that character.


It looks like @zaphodbrx also corroborates this issue here:

https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/matriarch-traxex-the-everything-enchantress-ranger.839517/#post-8425758

I believe it causes "Error 1437". That's specific to delirium though. The game almost never crashes otherwise.
Could account for the 'illegal animation' that @GalaXyHaXz identified:
EIP stands for "Extended Instruction Pointer" and tells the computer the location in memory to execute. In this case:
"EIP: 0x004087a8" Was the last position before the game closed. The game crashed at 0x004DBE0F which is related to handling weapon/shield animations.

I think @taxcut is in the general area. The crashing has to do with some kind of illegal equip/weapon animation. This must be a new bug for 1.14. Try not to cast enchant or any spells from illegal items and see if that helps.

That error rings a bell. I've had more crashes than other chars combined now that I've been doing some Nihlathak running, and yes merc uses Delirium.

I remembered some Baal runners mentioning the issue, so I was quite sure it was indeed Delirium's fault. Delirium is still totally worth it for me, it's still not too frequent. Now I'm only slightly worried that the game will crash the moment I see Zod on the ground! :p

Hmm, interesting.

I need to see if my other characters get crashes down there as well. Only that sometimes I can run an hour without interruption, so the testing would take a while :S Well, at least I'm interested to properly try Javazon there anyway.

The more testing, the better. I also thought that Natures Peace may play a part. I use oak sage. I've only had crashes when using Delirium and Natures Peace.

From the other thread:
FYI, I just had another crash, and the error message read:
Halt
Location: Line #1437
Unrecoverable internal error 6fb5d7c0
Seems to confirm the 1437 error. It was 99er sorc again. Merc wearing Delerium and sorc with Nature's Peace but no sage summoned.

And @Grape, I am certain there was a Zod on the ground each time I've had this crash :p

I remember reading about a crash when battle orders on a fetished (from delirium) merc would run out.

@T72on1's runs would be too short to have that happen.

Delirium caused me many crashes, doesn't really matter on character...Most crashes i've experienced with my lvl 98 Paladin, while running CS, and it always happened, when fighting Oblivion knights...It might have also something to do with merc transformation, i do agree...

Also, i know it has nothing to do with this cause, but i had to stop using CoS skill on assasin, it caused even more crashes then Delirium...Not sure why, its not just notoriously known situation with Ancients, also many times while fighting monsters, which are reviving others, and always, when there has been mummy sarcofagus, nests etc
