Title: couple of game crashes
Post by: dominustrick on December 18, 2002, 08:31:24 am
Traveiling using the autopilot and letting quto pilot enter into systems sometimes causes an entire crash with no program error.

sometimes the ship and any moble object in the game shows tracers that can only be removed by restarting the whole proggy

Got a couple more but have to reacheck them

Please ignore if these are already posted

This game runs on my system pretty well will post system later if youd like for reference

Both of these bugs have already been fixed on the CVS.

Dear sirs,
I am experiencing from the exact same bug as mentioned by Premier. I have the latest version (uqm-0.1-win32-installer.exe)
and the system freezes completely sometimes when entering a system using the autopilot. To remedy this I have to manually enter a system.
Another bug I've noticed is that the graphics sometimes get garbled and doesn't update..  only parts of the graphics that "need" updating get updated.. like for instance when the number of men in your ship gets updated, the rest of the menu remains black, but as soon as someone dies, you suddenly see a number appearing - reflecting the change in your crew-size. Same with everything else.. when moving the ship around, it leaves a trail of its own bitmap, instead of exposing the space behind it..
Another annoying bug I have noticed is that when aliens talk, the subtitles play a lot faster than the actual speech, so it's easy to get lost.

Anyone know when this gets fixed? It should be prioritized imho.
My system is:  amd thunderbird 700mhz, 1024mb pc133, geforce2mx, 80gb western digital, A7V KT133 VIA Apollo.

Thanks for an otherwise excellent port of the original game!!
And thanks to "Toys for Bob" for releasing the sourcecode.
I Hope to hear from you!

Oh, I forgot to mention something of importance:
I run Windows 2000 Professional.

While version .1 is the latest official release, it is not the latest verison that exists.

I have an unnofficial build from more up to date code, and trust me, this bug has been fixed.

To get the fix, either compile the CVS code or find Sun and PhracturedBlue's unnoficial releases.
