Bugs, crashes, typos & bad taste
« on: November 10, 2016, 03:19:48 pm »
Please report found bugs and fatal crashes caused by X-Com Files here.

Each report is a save, with a description of what to do to get a crash. Ideally something as simple as "press end turn, shooting happens then the game crashes". Try to make a save as close to the crash as possible (i.e. just before pressing end turn) so that testers don't have much to do.

Extra info that is useful:
1 - Screenshot of the offending unit.
2 - Info about the offending unit and how to circumvent the bug.

(And yes, I stole most of this text from Arthanor's opening of a similar topic in X-Piratez. Hey, I'm a modder after all.)

EDIT: Changed the topic to make it look different from the Piratez one, as I was getting confused.


EDIT: Do not enable Aliens Pick Up Weapons, as it is already included with this mod.

Here some missing strings:
- zombie infector corpse bioextraction project name
-"str_no_alien_containment_for_transfer_2"
- deep one village mission name

And alive zombies still useless (can not be bioextracted)

Indeed, thank you, fixed.

- deep one village mission name

This one seems to be in, are you sure?

And alive zombies still useless (can not be bioextracted)

Should I make it possible to butcher them? Sounds... kinda inappropriate. :)

Got a savegame.

Well... they are zombies, right? And vivisection of alive alien species is what X-com researchers do most of their time, i think. 8)

What am I supposed to do with it?

Yes, for science! But this would be industrial butchery of, well, sick people... I just don't know.

EDIT: Moved the Zombies issue to a new thread.

Savegame with active mission, named Str_deep_one_village, or something like that.

Hey, I've gotten a crash bug. Crash reliably happens at the same time and seems to be an event, see:

It's a known bug, sorry about it. It'll be fixed in the next version.

Glad to see that this mod has come so far. There's a crash in the sole Dangerous Lunatic mission that I got. The crash only occurs if the I try to put the lunatic on my screen, that is to say that if my soldiers can see him it's fine, but if I try to scroll to him to attack the game crashes.

EDIT: Crap I didn't notice that there's a bug report thread. Could someone please move this post to that thread?

Yes, indeed there is a missing definition for the unit graphics. Sorry, here's a hotfix - just replace the file in the Ruleset folder.

I raided a cult outpost, but couldnt find the last man. Bug Hunt mode activated, but there are no enemies on the map. Why wont the mission end?

Edit: it turns out there was an invisible ninja hiding in a corner waiting to instant-kill the first sucker to walk nearby. Damnit
