Constant crash on v.1.3.0

#1 2020-02-12 07:46:42
After I updated to v.1.3.0, it successfully ran once, but after that first time, it crashes every time I open my colony after a few seconds.
Playing on PC, windows edition.
Colony name: waterworld001

Edit:
1. The platform is Ape Native.
2. The crashing type is closing immediately without any notice.
3. Newly created online colonies, not created under my charter "waterworld001", also crash in the same way.
4. Offline colonies are not affected.

Same thing here:

On my second account, Windows 10, native game version (my-colony-win-x64-1.3.0, around 190mb), yesterday was fine, today every region map opened, crashed in few sec. No error.

In the my-colony-v1.3.0-error, i have:
v1.3.0 1581509874949 events.js: 187 Uncaught Error: connect ECONNREFUSED (my LAN IP):2735

ps. primary account, on ape apps launcher v1.33, game version 1.3.0, seems work fine.

Sounds like its due to Windows Firewall blocking the app, but it's never crashed it before this. The issue is that on offline games, the game creates a local server so that other players on your LAN can trade resources with you. If the firewall blocks the local server though, then it cannot create one. It always just failed quietly before though, idk why it would crash now as I haven't changed any networking code. I will look into it.

Before the first post, i have check my Comodo firewall (some time is annoying, but usually block the ape apps launcher), no log for My Colony.

I have just check windows firewall, adding two new rule (for in/out), no change.

Witch file i should add to the "trust" category?

C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Local\my_colony\My Colony.exe

only this one?

It occurs to me that the firewall may not be the issue. I totally blocked the game from the firewall and can still open it.

I do get the same
v1.3.0 1581515463755 events.js: 187 Uncaught Error: connect ECONNREFUSED

output in my error log, but it does not crash the game at all.

This is on Windows 10 x64. What version of Windows are you all using, if you are having the force close issue?

To add firewall exception add the following location:

C:\Users\YOUR USER ACCOUNT\AppData\Local\my_colony\app-1.3.0\My Colony.exe

No change

But.. the secondary account is "friend" with the primary account, and on my primary chat i see "Ansombackup is online".


ps. but in case of firewall/internet problem, i shouldn't be able to open the online map, or even the game if my firewall block the file badly.
