Arena bug

Post by Daniel Anulliero » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:47 am

Hi all
I use arena for my tests.
I know arena had a bug , sometimes the gui stopped a tournament after 20 games played.
They've released a bugfix : the 3.5.1 version .
Thats the version I'm using now.
But I notice the bug appear sometimes , after a restart of the gui , even if 7 , 35 or .... games played .
To fix that, I need To reinstall the gui .. a little bit boring ..
Do you have this problem ?
Is there a way to avoid this problem ? (don't answer "use another gui " lol)
Thanks for your answers

Install Arena 3.5.1, run a test (TC 30s+200ms), no problem encountered so far.


One way to determine the problem is to enable the debug and save it. Whenever Arena stops playing the tournament, try to examine the debug file.
