View Full Version : S_FindName: empty name

Encountered this error about 15 minutes into a server test.

Shutting down OpenGL subsystem
S_FindName: empty name

Anyone had this problem and found a result?
I searched S_FindName in code, and it doesn't exist. Searched old q3 source code and it has to do with sounds. That's as far as I've gotten.
I've found numerous complaints in other forums about this error in other mods and servers, but none had a result.
Any idea what the error means?
thx in advance

compile your dlls in debug mode

I have been. I've only started doing the final build within the last week. I've had no previous error in debug relating to whatever may cause this.

this is a really common thing... i've just never gotten the error myself.. i'm sure someone lurking around will know what to do

This sounds familar. Maybe it's the Stormtrooper bug that Phunk and Ayzmn were having problems with.

Are you sure the server's game time limit isn't 15 minutes? Maybe it's exiting the game mode and closing down game systems ... just a wacky idear.
