Okay, then if the bug persists, you might have a problem with game version.

I guess that niculinux use older than 2.5b version without fixed craft durability bonus from weapons.

maybe, i just installed the brand new openxocm-extended package provided by knapsu in the PPA, perapsh the package itself is not updated? For futher details, here.

Actually there is a way also via terminal - to see what version i have for those who install via ubuntu PPA? Screenshot attached :)

Edit: omething about the handle in the 0.97b: the description contains the string: target receives Morale on hit. Actually i think there's the "los" word missing, so that targets receives moreale loss on hit?

actually in the black market and in the ufopedia reads cattle prod, while in the research topic "contract:smugglers" (the one that unlocks it) tell "stun rod so it's a typo in the "contract: smugglers" research topic results :)

Argh, yeah that's what i meant. :) A similar minor 'bug' is that durathread mesh still uses the 'trader stuff' ufopedia entry

From what I understand, this entry for the handle is correct.  You can actually use it on your own troops that might be panicking to "slap them around a bit" and snap them out of it.  Much like sergeants and petty officers used sticks or ropes to beat their own troops and keep them doing what they were supposed to do.

^exactly true.

About the 'trader's stuff' etc. I kept it for clarity's sake (wtf did I just research?) but I can change these names too, if you think it'd be more proper.

Probably 'better' to change the names for consistency, even though it's a minor thing.

Re: Bugs & Crash Reports: Huge Rocky?
« Reply #127 on: December 22, 2015, 06:29:19 pm »
Not sure if this is a bug or not:

In Piratez_Armors.rul (line 2216), "Rocky" the Silacoid has a  loftempsSet: [ 5 ]

In my imperfect understanding of loftemps, I believe that 5 is Huge...

I would have assumed the unit to have a Medium (2) or Small (1) valued to reflect their size as a sprite. 

If my understanding of these settings is wrong, I'd love to understand it better if someone can point me to the right place. :)

This is totally dumb to report since I am using 0.96 (upgraded from 0.95C):

CTD occurs when clicking the left (or "previous entry") arrow button on the research report Bootypedia entry (in the stream it was the male Labourer that popped up). However, clicking the right arrow (or "next entry") or Aye buttons does not result in a CTD.

  • Advance time to the next day
  • Click View Reports
  • Click Left Arrow ("Previous Entry")
  • Game should CTD

I'm sure this is probably fixed but there ya go.

edit: Not sure if the .sav actually attached? Attached a new one to see if that works.

Nah, I had no idea. Probably some leftovers/empty techs/conflict with vanilla? No idea. I will investigate.

Not sure if this is a bug or not:

Copied from the original game. I guess it's flat but wide.

kk. :)  Thanks. 

I got quite a kick out of investigating Rocky.  Question about his powers:

Spoiler:
Love his built in flame thrower.  Range unlimited is intended?

Re-attached the save... not sure why it didn't properly the first time.

It does crash no matter what you research. Well. Can't do much about that, since all the Pedia entries are good. Just don't use that left arrow until it gets unf***ed by someone in charge.

@Silacoid: yeah, intended. Doesn't really matter, I think, since it is an AI unit.

Not a bug, you have a 33.3% chance of Solar Courier being researched for free, due to its research cost = 1. I think it is fine, maybe someone just read it in their spare time :)
