My Game Just Had A Nuclear Meltdown
Like, literally. Anyone ever have such a thing like this happen to them?

So I'm just loading up into another multiplayer game like any other time when my game decides to have a nuclear meltdown while loading Curien Mansion's Graveyard Gig. By the way, worth noting that nothing more happens after 50 seconds, it's just a frozen game that took me that long to shut it down lol.

Oh my.
I have never seen anything close to this happen before, so I'd hazard a guess and say it might be memory related, or overclocking related. Some bit flip somewhere surely!

Epic glitch is epic.

Well that's a new one. I can't say I've had this happen to me. Worst I've had was that the game crashed on me when I minimized, then tried to resize it while a track was loading.

I just wish I was frapsing it from the start, it was initially playing the graveyard gig intro music but then swapped to the menu music when I minimised to load up fraps.

When you do it again, let me know :)

I'll be sure to do that, though it was just a random thing that happened when trying to load in, nothing specific that I did to cause it. At least nothing that I'm aware of anyway.

that's the weirdest bug I've ever seen.

This basically amounts to telling him to "push random buttons as much as you can until something explodes". Bonus points for not looking while you do it.

I wonder if it's related to minimizing the game, since I managed to crash the game by doing so during the bonus chance loading screen in an online match. I did mine for Teamspeak, but still, mine also resulted in the standard ASN stopped working crash, where as something just outright failed on your end.

I should explain :P

Whenever QA find a completely random bug that simply can't be replicated (and especially when it's reported once and there are no real details on how it happened...) then I generally tell them that.

Sometimes weird things happen. You spend days attempting to reproduce it, but never see it again...!

Hence 'When you do it again, let me know' :P

Ah, the debugger's nightmare. That weird glitch that just makes no sense and you have no clue how it happened. Yeah, I've been there before. It's.... an odd place to be.

This is the coolest glitch I have seen in the game so far.
