You should report this to the developers. Engineers can’t do much here.

It appears that the players that originally reported the crashing are no longer running into this, and I am not seeing any new reports of players crashing.

I appreciate the response!

that reported the crashing? did you even try to reproduce it before reporting?

The reproduction steps are in the post. Don’t think you realise (cc @maddjames28) but OP is a developer for Adopt Me. They created this bug report based on crash reports and reproduction steps that were leading up to the crash.

as in reproduction steps i mean by the developer themselves trying to recreate the crash

Since things are working now, maybe not much to add, except to ask if the service outage today had any bearing on this? The only reason I ask, I had to put “lag” checks into my game when the roblox server CPU spikes (either because the service is very busy or maybe a bug in my game is causing this I’ve never seen before) as I’ve seen during very busy roblox service, it can affect all the games across the service and if any of them are real-time calculation heavy like mine, results in weird side effects, lag as seen by players, etc.
