    [Known Issue] Splitscreen Minibike - Duplication and Crash

    [STATUS: CAUSE KNOWN - FIX FOUND AND IN PROGRESS]

    This issue has appear as a part of the Minibike Fix from Patch 8. The team are already aware of this issue, know what is behind it and are working on completing the fix for release.

    The bug only occurs in Splitscreen (if you see contradicting evidence to this please let me know) and occurs when the host - Player 1 - quits the game when Player 2 is on a minibike. This can cause the minibike to duplicate within the game, and cause crashes when Player 2 tries to rejoin the game when it is restarted.

    It is not known if the crash or duplicated bikes will cause an issue within the save, but it is probably best to avoid it if you can.

    EDIT: This can effect player 2 if player 2 is:

    - On the minibike
    - Beside the minibike
    - within the same chunk as the minibike

    Players who have crashes as player 2 tries to join have a small chance of being stuck in a crashing loop. If this happens, Player 1 can try moving the bike 1 chunk over (chunks are 16x16). Some players say this helps them get back into the game.

    EDIT 2: It has been reported changing player 2's character on login can help when this is an issue.

    This is unclear, I would recommend both.
    Unfortunately due to the bug, the workarounds may only work for some. If P2 was on a bike when they exited the game, this would cause a crash no matter what, and there seems to be no workaround for this other than maybe signing in on a guest profile until the fix is released.

    Other reports have come in of the same thing happening with signs in the area, or campfires and forges turned on. It is unknown if this is a knock-on effect of this minibike bug, or an independent one. Ensuring all crafting stations are inactive and removing any recently placed signs may help.
