I don't know that this is a bug, but I figured I'd report it since it isn't in the change notes.  In the games I started under .98B, I got almost exactly one pogrom a month (pogrom 16 was in April of the second year).  I started my current game with .98C, and I've only had five pogroms in a full year of play.

Maybe it's not clearly stated, but since 0.98C, all enemy missions in a month have less than 100% chance of spawning. It makes the game less predictable, and creates a gap for planned novelty missions to fill.

Intercepted an Imperial Probe, first with an Kraken, followed it until my Bonny arrived (which was unarmed) and then got this message screen when the interception screen (for the unarmed bonny) should pop up.

It's a TFTD thing, OXC bug. Save please, this bug is very very elusive.

Here you go. It's another savegame, the glitch happened again. I think it has to do with the fact that my Bonny is unarmed.
Just click on the interception icon.

it is indeed an unarmed craft related bug. I've seen it quite alot actually but it appears to have no actual game impact.

Game crashes, when I'm trying to research public enemy I guess.

I think the game just don't want me to finish the game :P

Edit: If I don't research it doesn't crash
If I disable spent research item, It still crashes.
If I insert the tech in the save game and don't research public enemy it doesn't crash, but crashes If I do

So It has something to do with the research trigger, when it's completed. I don't think I can figure it out without the source code.
I can't take over more work  :(

Do you use save scumming?

The Public Enemy research gives other techs, one of which can be "STR_LIGHT_CRYSTAL". However, it has no research topic or ufopaedia article associated with it, just an item. So it is likely that your game is trying to give you knowledge of "STR_LIGHT_CRYSTAL" but failing because there is no such research to give.

For now, I would try going into your Piratez.rul, finding the "STR_STAR_GOD_PUBLIC_ENEMY" and removing the "STR_LIGHT_CRYSTAL" from the getOneFree list. The game should give you something else and all the other topics should be safe. Hopefully that fixes it.

Yes, the option Savescumming is on.

And that fixed it. Thank you

True, but the color selection of that message needs a change for sure  :) And a fitting STR_ of course.

It was fixed 4 months ago: https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/commit/7eb860eaf3b1d2f06290e87308354581746600db

I will cherry-pick the change into OXCE+.

I just met 2 beastmasters in the ship. I stripped their armor by shooting and then I have stunned them (and at least one soldier outside the ship), but there are no captured units.
VERSION 0.98D - campaign started with older version
Edit: My bad - i should upgrade to ver 0.98D1

That has to be first translation ever. Share it dude :)

Intercepted an Imperial Probe, first with an Kraken, followed it until my Bonny arrived (which was unarmed) and then got this message screen when the interception screen (for the unarmed bonny) should pop up.

Might also be some problem with your settings/game directory since I'm not getting this message when following your instructions. Might be why I have never experienced it myself...
