- I found a gal whose face changes when putting on Defender armor. As far as I can tell it only happens with this armor, though I haven't researched all the armors yet.

That's a funny one :P I'll leave that to Dioxine.

- I have a crash upon abandoning a botched base defense mission. Save attached.

I don't get the crash.
Can someone else try please?
Or maybe it's something from your mod (piratezBTCustom)?

But I get enemy surrenders, which is wrong, I'll fix that.

EDIT: fixed the crash too

Oh yeah, that, I forgot I had that active. It's just a few strings for the dependencies though. The entirety of that mod reads:
Quote
extraStrings:
  - type: en-US
    strings:
      STR_DIRECT_DEPENDENCIES: "Dependencies"
      STR_LEVEL_2_DEPENDENCIES: "Secondary Dependencies"
      STR_LEVEL_3_DEPENDENCIES: "Tertiary Dependencies"
      STR_LEVEL_4_DEPENDENCIES: "Quaternary Dependencies"
      STR_END_OF_SEARCH: ""

That's harmless.
I don't know then... I really don't get the crash... let's wait if anyone else gets it.

Actually, it seems like it's intermittent. I just tested it again and could abort "properly" (yeah, there's surrenders), but trying it a second time caused the crash. Perhaps try aborting that mission a few times and see if it blows up?

On that note I had a crash earlier today when starting a Chupacabra Hunt mission, but that same mission started fine on the second attempt so sadly I can't provide you with a way to reproduce. But it's a data point so there you go.

[Edit] Attached the dump file for that crash in case it helps.

A possible oversight, Blood axe is dependent on red codex only unlike the other deamon derived weapons. Additionally Hellblade is red or green codex.

I'm assuming it's a bug for healing gel to be available for manufacturing at game start.  Alternately, it's probably supposed to have a bootypedia article.

Yep, I noticed the same thing. IMHO it should be behind synthetic biosomethingorother research.

Cloaking device description doesn't fit.  Is the space limit on those things hardcoded or is it possible to change things like font size or something?

It should be behind 'healing gel' research, lol.

FOUND IT!!!

It never crashed for me (tried 20x)... but when I traced it step by step, I saw that I try working with the base's storage already after the base is destroyed (deleted from globe and from memory).
This instinctively should crash every time... but instead it most probably just read/wrote somewhere random in the memory :(

I'll fix that, and also set the base pointer explicitly to 0 to prevent any similar oversight in the future.
And I'll try to prepare a pull request for vanilla xcom too... this is potentially too dangerous... even though in vanilla nobody ever loses a base this way :)

1. Surrender bug. When a warmaiden who started the mission knocked out and wounded was revived, she didn't count as a surrendered enemy and the mission didn't end until I knocked her out again.

2. It's possible to send chips to a base with no storage space, and then get stuck in the screen that forces you to sell your loot with nothing to sell (because the chips haven't arrived yet?)

1) Doesn't sound like a bug, since it wasn't you who stunned her first, if I read that correctly?

They have no weapons and were knocked out already, no reason why they shouldn't count as surrendered.

Opinion against opinion.

Not having to do anything on your side... is a reason enough for me not to give it to you for free.

Well, she wakes up, she notices that she was apparently saved and bandaged by some good soul... Morale restored! :)
