Line 199 of DebriefingState.cpp for Valiant Crux.

Line 278 of DebriefingState.cpp for Nike Cross.

Line 661 of DebriefingState.cpp for Iron Man.

As for the combat knife, I get the following error : ".../KnifeSlice.wav:Mix_LoadWAV_RW with NULL src". Any idea what that means? Despite my modding openxcom, I've never actually installed any mods :x

Heheh!!  Why did  I never check Debriefing State???  LOL!   I was looking in SaveGame, Battlescape, etc...

I think I might see the problem with the knife slice..

Code: [Select]
extraSounds:
  - type: BATTLE.CAT
    files:
      #67: Resources/CombatKnife/Sounds/knifeHit.wav
      67: Resources/UpClose/CombatKnife/Sounds/KnifeSlice.wav

Should read:
Code: [Select]
extraSounds:
  - type: BATTLE.CAT
    files:
      #67: Resources/CombatKnife/Sounds/knifeHit.wav
      67: Resources/CombatKnife/Sounds/KnifeSlice.wav



I left the "upclose" path in it. XD, I'll work on fixing it and reuploading it.

(EDIT:  Reuploaded it with correct path in the fileset. https://www.openxcom.com/mod/upclose-modpack/download/d36b394a )


Thanks, Shoes!
Cheers, Ivan :D

Awesome designs Ivan! I love your idea, and these medals are really well-though of and gloriously looking. The more I am sad that your Photoshop conversion skills do not give full credit to these designs. I believe I could do a better conversion to UFO format if you provided the original files?

@Dioxine. :)  I'd love any pointers.  I'll PM you my .psd.    I have been disappointed with the finished product too, but figured it was just the limitations of the indexed pallettes.

Cheers, Ivan :)

ivandogovich, I found another problem with your package ;p your "Sounds" folder was not inside the CombatKnife folder, so the game couldn't find the wav. Oops ;D Now on to bug testing..

edit: able to reproduce it. It looks like killing with a knife awards every type of kill, thus triggering commendations of the "if you get EVEN ONE...". Other than this and the goomba stomp, was that all of them?

I think I'm having a similar problem with my Flashbang grenades, then.   It applies stun damage, but I'm getting a lot of Order of the Hammer and Bolt's Cross.  I have also gotten these for kills that were neither, knife, nor flashbangs.

These posts have saves, but I didn't check them to see if they are knife related.

I think we are getting really close!  I'm excited!

Cheers, Ivan :D

Fixed erroneous Bolt's Cross and Order of the Hammer. Turns out, arrays can't be used like vectors. When I was checking the size of the array, it was giving me it's literal length of characters, 7, which is the melee battle type. So every kill was considered to have been done as a melee. This should also fix the flashbang!

I think all the bugs in your list have been fixed, so all that's left is goomba stomping!

Woot Woot Woot!  :D

I'm less available this week, but I'll continue working on the graphics and my "Commendations_Ufopedia" mod.  I'm making pretty good progress and have over half of the medals done already.

Cheers, Ivan :D

Medallion ideas for the Reaction Fire award:

I'm looking to emphasize swiftness.  Two motiff ideas for feedback:
  • A snake coiled to strike.
  • A pistol with smoke rising from the barrel.

Thoughts or ideas, anyone?
Cheers, Ivan :D

So links have been updated for both nightly and legacy. In the nightly, I also add the language file because of work I did in anticipation of getting my stat tracking code merged.

My next project will be to add a commendations page to the ufopedia ;p but that will not be for today.

Of the two choices, I like the snake more than the smoking gun (unless you can show it shot it's own shadow, Lucky Luke style). Looking at the picture, I just had an idea you might (not) like though: What about a mongoose? Those things are fast! And in the typical mongoose-snake fight, I always picture the snake as the attacker, the mongoose as the one reacting.

Plus, it's nice to picture the aliens as the snake and cute mammal for humans ;) We're the nice ones, right?

Latest 4 UFOPedia Entries

Valiant Crux, Bolt's Cross, Swiftness (Maybe better named as "Quick Strike Citation"?,
and The Sapper Medal ( a new award that I have developed)

Had some problems with one soldier ALWAYS receiving the "Lucky something" award each mission even when doing absolutely nothing. The soldier had a 10-autoshot mini-gun maybe that's causing the problems?
