Amazing: 2-news-posts-in-1!

As you might have heard, we had a data loss cause by 2 hard drive failures in close succession. Totally important to all our lives, also lost, was the php script for the random polls. But fret not, we still got the results and the last poll is relevant to my own contribution to the new Savage XR 1.3 patch.




HOWEVER!

Before adding any of the new stuff like caves, mobile spawn points, mining carts and stuff, we need to take care of the bugs and issues the community submitted. Clemens been slaving like a boss, fixing stuff left and right, literally 20h/day. But there are some things we need help with tracking down and reproducing. Here's a short list. Please help!


  • Fix demo not getting traced by melee while lego is standing on it
  • Fix the spawn gui occasionally freezes
  • Fix loadout sometimes not changing?
  • Fix behe swing animation not showing, rarely
  • Improve building-placement delays probably caused by lag, connection errors, and bad ping

We would need detailed and/or precise instructions in order to replicate the conditions needed to reproduce the bugs. And no, not even demo bug happens every time and yes, surrounding objects like buildings, units, props and stuff, do affect the trace.

Thanks.

Loadout bug is due the minimap spawning hud. Can be reproduced afaik if you click on the loadout mini map somewhere (Except an actual spawn point) and go back to loadout. GUI should be frozen.

Behe animation should happen if you click LBUTTON too fast. It should start attacking without the previous anim come to an end.

I would be glad to help replicate the demo bug, I'll demo run as much as possible in the time I play.

I do have one important suggestion that I think has been overlooked. Shuffle and even votes are broken and need to be fixed. Shuffle should randomize players into teams while even votes should place players evenly according to K/D ratio (stats) for balance, those alone would help make the game less stacky and more enjoyable.

voice sounds for 3/4 team games seem to be bugged.
e.g.: t1 attacks t2 sublair, t3 gets voice sounds "We are attacking their sublair"
same goes for all other buildings and team combinations

ive quite recently encountered a weird bug where i built a shield and the blue line thingie clearly showed that my garrison would be shielded. ultimately it wasnt and my team was cut off from the battlefield due to my buildings blocking their way.

You are right.

Hello. It is said that nothing on the Internet ever truly gets deleted. I have a 9-year-old copy of the poll code if you want it.

(I can't help with the XR bugs, though.)

Sure, i'd like to try the obsolete script you recommended. Hold the trojans. Thanks!
