New Beta 1.35 - crash whilst performing LM CSM rendevous (iOS)
« on: November 15, 2016, 11:00:15 AM »
Following lunar ascent, used docking MFD to approach within 5km then program 72 (coelliptic rendevus). As approached CSM pressed STOP (Kill velocity) on docking MFD. Resulted in crash.

Just checked again - crash results following programs 72 and 73 regardless of the STOP command. Seems to have been introduced in 1.35 (worked in previous build)

Seems like it may not be programs 72 and 73 that cause the problem. I used the Docking MFD to get close to the CSM (less than 5km) and had a crash.

Tried using docking MFD to get within 2km and then Program 79 to dock - crashed when closing distance was about 26m

I think I know how to reproduce the problem. I try to perform the transition between Apollo phases without selecting the next mission. So I chose the Lunar Ascent (Episode 10) mission, and then use the docking MFD to move to within about 25km of the CSM (using 'Point to' and 'Retrograde'). I then use Program 72 to move close to the CSM, and then Program 79 to try and dock. When I am about 20m away, the app crashes.  I am pretty sure this worked with 1.34 although in that build there was a bug (as reported) in that the CM wasn't docked with the SM. If I choose the Lunar Orbit Rendevous mission (Episode 11), and then use Program 72 and 79 I dock successfully. I wondered if fixing the CM/SM bug has somehow introduced the problem.

I hope this helps!

hi! .

indeed it helped . I could finally reproduce the bug . It is due to the Collision of the LM descent stage (*which stays for a few seconds and then dissapears ) , and should be deleted (and it wasnt ) , creating a null-ref   crash 

is fixed now   . Anyway , you can avoid this crash by de-selecting spacecraft collisions in the options
Thanks again!.

Just to confirm that de-selecting collisions overcomes the problem
