Can't reproduce but can see the error in console: couldn't load image and a stack printout

Most likely a dangling pointer issue.
It would be great to see crash dump for this (on some version with debug symbols).

developer   ~0013106

I run SVN no-tools builds, so no debug symbols
How do I build those locally?
I think I should close this one for now? Since it's not reproducible and it's not a beta testing stage yet

What mission?

All missions, image_preload 0, happens after 10-20 minutes of gameplay
I worked around it locally with decl_stack 0

I asked which mission since you supplied coordinates:

Approx view org: (-1785 367 -60)

That said, I have not had a crash like this except for the r_useParallelAddModels which I no longer have as of 2.09 beta.

So you are trying to run without: image_preload "1" ? To save on VRAM? I'll try to reproduce with that setting.

"image_preload 0" is seriously broken now.

The only way to see anything after the mission is started is to "reloadImages" which I presume does exactly what "image_preload 1" would do.
If we aren't going to fix this, then the cvar should be un-archived.

Oh yes, this use case is of course broken.

I'll change the loadStack to store strings internally.

Now LoadStack saves all strings (i.e. names) immediately when new object is appended onto stack.
The printout code now use the saved strings.
In fact, object pointer is never used now: it remains for debugging purposes only. The object can die after Append without any problem.

All the strings are stored in a global pool (idStrPool), similar to the ones used for keys/values in idDict.
Commands like showLoadStackMemory allow to see how much space is taken by them right now.

The list of commits:
  r9065. Reverted commit 8947 (hack around dangling pointer to idWindow).
  r9066. idStrPool refactoring (use cpp file, extracted strings printing code).
  r9067. LoadStack now extracts strings immediately in Append and stores them in its own global pool. This should fix all sort of dangling pointers, since object pointers are never dereferenced.
The r9066 has no effect, just some generic refactoring.
r9067 has the main changes, and r9065 reverts some hack which is no longer needed.

These changes fix the loadstack crash, but "image_preload 0" still does not work for me.
At least on default settings. The whole screen is gray.

Maybe caused by bindless textures, don't know.
