This requires some investigation. I suspect the crash is caused by a race condition in Doomsday's file indexing.

If you're asking if 2.3 improves mod support with regard to mods made for other engines, the answer is no...

That's a programming term for a problem where multiple threads are handling the same data with a random outcome, so one possible result is a crash because the data gets garbled.

ok so i manage to get the program finally working by using the sourceforge version. but i still get issues when loading mods or wads like REKKR for instant. no episodes or skill is listed when creating a custom profile.
