The bug report below focuses only on getting the crash. Working test case:

Have the following situation in WML:

  • [era] with force_modification=xyz
  • [era] with ignores_scenario=abc
  • [scenario] with disallow_modification=xyz

Obviously, not all can be true at the same time. But by answering Wesnoth’s questions you can get this setup working:

  1. Select an other scenario, chose the desired era. You'll be asked to activate the modification, if it isn't the case already
  2. Switch to the desired scenario. It asks you to deactivate the modification. -> yes
  3. Followed by question from the era to activate it -> no
  4. Play. Exit wesnoth normally (not ctrl+c), so the config is saved

Getting the crash:

  1. Launch wesnoth and go to create a MP game. Wesnoth remembers your last selection form last game.
  2. While the loading screen is shown, the era asks to activate the modification -> no leads to crash

Bonus: Easy reproduction – because wesnoth died, it didn't write the config and you are asked the same next time.

I got a crash with the same error message without restarting wesnoth, while clicking around through scenarios, and denying / accepting different answers. So this issue is not specific to entering MP, it's merely a way to reproduce. This was at that time my stderr and backtrace:

Which add-ons/scenarios are candidates for the set-up you have here?

I added the three lines to the ANLEra add-on; to one of the included scenarios and the era.

maybe someone could explain again what 'ignores_scenario' does, odeally with a concreate usecase?

That was supposed to mean ignore_incompatible_scenario.
From what I've seen, the options with "ignore_" in the name allow you to click away the popup with "no" without resetting the checkbox.
