I was checking out v2.38 but the game won't load, yaml error-see attached. I've checked through notepad + but can't see what the issue is?

Probably tabs used instead of spaces on line 4857 in Items.rul

You can tell Notepad++ to always put spaces in instead of tabs for a given language. Go to Settings > Preferences > Language > YAML and under 'Tab Settings' check '[ ] Replace by space'.

You can also change all tabs into spaces on a given page by clicking Edit > Blank Operations > TAB to Space.

Ok, as i have seen in Yeti LP, there is a minor nasty bug: Exosuit back armor is 1. It is typo, and there is a quickfix: replace that file.

I appreciate the fix of Poseidon map, now SWS can move freely inside the alien barge!
Well, I recently restarted the game and somehow Khimtar mission doesn't spawn despite the church data base being researched, it's already June and 2 countries are gone...help?
I wonder if at least 1 month of wait is required after the church data base research.
Does the story progression affect the enemy strength?

Yes, but in way of new aliens emerge. Guns will upgrade with time passing, not story moving.

Dart Autogun has increased (instead of reduced) one-handed penalty.
Penalty works like a multiplier, so 25% means sharply reduced accuracy, while the default value of 80% means you can effectively dual-wield Gas Cannons.

Suggestion: set oneHandedPenaltyGlobal to 50 or less, fix oneHandedPenalty value for weapons that use it.

Ok, thanks.
Checked twice. It is allready fine, 25% used. Equal to 75% of accuracy when one-handed. Normal guns have 50%.

No, oneHandedPenalty: 25 means 25% accuracy. See the ruleset reference or just check it in-game.

20% penalty would be encoded as "80" (i.e. 100 minus 20), meaning you will use the weapon at 80% of its usual accuracy.

Normal guns have 80% accuracy when used one-handed.
The default value of oneHandedPenaltyGlobal is 80, not 50. And it isn't set to 50 anywhere in TWoTS. You can plainly see it in Stats for Nerds that it uses the default value of 80.

Just try holding a Gas Cannon in one hand and a Dart Autogun in the other, then check their accuracy.

Override for the global one-handed penalty (which applies only to weapons marked as twoHanded). 20% penalty would be encoded as "80" (i.e. 100 minus 20), meaning you will use the weapon at 80% of its usual accuracy.
Looks like this ufopedia wiki text is wrong then.
Will fix dart gun.

Upd: Version 2.39 is up.
Changelog:
- Now all units have inventory images, and let no one go offended;
- New shield level indicator - when unit is hit, flash message shows shield left;
- minor fixes;
- OXCE 6.4 used.

Shard Rifle and Laser SMG still have increased one-handed penalty.

Other guns still have 20% penalty, not 50%.

This is because oneHandedPenaltyGlobal isn't set anywhere, and the default value is 80, not 50.
Was this intended? You just said it's supposed to be 50%.

Sorry for nagging.

Could you enable bug hunt and maybe have more units be capable of surrendering? Some of the maps are huge and complex, and finding that one last panicking aquatoid running around unarmed can take quite a few turns, which is kinda pointless.
