Game crash when using the flashlight, EVERYTIME (item in a plastic case)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


My flashlight is set into my shortcut menu, and it is also in my inventory, but more specifically into a plastic case. That might be the problem (but not necessarily) because I have never experienced this huge bug before. Anyway, everytime I press the "1" button to activate the shortcut to take my flashlight, the game freezes for about 1 second. Then, the program shuts down with a Windows error message saying the program ceased to work. I have to press then ctrl-alt-delete to make my cursor reappear, as it was not visible anymore.

Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Get into your game
  2. (MAYBE) Put your torch in a plastic case
  3. Put the flashlight in your shortcuts (n1 for me)
  4. Activate your shortcut from your keyboard

If I do this, I can reproduce the crash infinitely, which is a bit disturbing when I play at night (AKA 80% of the time as the servers are majoritarily hosted in Europe, and I'm North American)

Additional Information

I am wearing an orange rain coat and a cargo pants, with a total capacity of 10 simple items. The case is stored in the coat.

It should get out of hotbar for items you place into a case, normally you would have to open the case first to get the light out. It is a bug yes, but if you think it's logical, put light in case, then also out of hotbar.

You're right, and I wanted to experiment this kind of bug further, but I lost the case -and the flashlight- in another bug. You know, the one with the items disappearing everytime you drop them and they never reappear even after a couple of minutes. Yeah, this one.

Of course it should go out of the hotbar automatically when you put it in the case the same way when you eat some fruit but it then remains in the case.

Yes, these items not reappearing if major hassle, that and the ghosting should be handled of firstly.
