Laptop based killstreaks crash theatre mode #16
Steps to reproduce, replay theatre clip which includes your character calling in a laptop based killstreak such as a chopper gunner. This results in the theatre clip exiting to the main menu with the message 'Lost connection to host'. Many players have reported this issue and has been an issue for a while over multiple releases.
UPDATE: it appears that server message of type 2 (exchange of config strings) is not handled correctly when opening a laptop based killstreak. It does not parse the entire network packet correctly because of that, thus leaving random garbage in the buffer, the game then tries to read this garbage as server message.
