Can you start a multiplayer game with no clients?
& are host and all clients using the same version of the game such as v188.8.131.52.
Could you also advise whether host and clients are using the BGEE executable with blue user interface, or SoD executable with black user interface. If you are mixing part and part, does the problem remain if everyone uses one or the other?

I am able to start a multiplayer game with no clients.
All clients and host use last version from Steam and we're on BGEE executable with blue user interface. We don't have an opportuinty to test it with SoD since nobody in our party bought this DLC, but we've heard (from Beamdog forums) that our issue doesn't occur in SoD.

Could you advise how many clients are trying to connect and pc/mac/linux combinations.
At what point does it crash, in character arbitration, generating/importing characters or when you click start.
What happens if you try to add one client at a time.
& can you get everyone's crash dumps attached in zip format - they should each compress down to 500k or so, with a zip name so we can refer to each such as host, client1, client2 etc.

OK, I can reproduce if I switch the game language to Polish - I take it you're not using English?
Nope, I'm not. It's Polish, as you probably figured by yourself. :)
So if the bug is reproduceable I guess that it won't be necessary to point out how many clients connected and on which platforms. We'll test our game in English and if something new happens I will report it there immediately but I think you got everything right.
