Oh yeah, the last patch gave me a "cannot write to uqm.exe abort rerty fail" error. I skipped it (abort) and d/led the rest. It runs, but I don't know if I missed out on new code or not.

Do I have to change the archive bit on uqm.exe or something?

You were probably running UQM on the background while installing. Of course you have to have that file Wink reinstall and recheck the bugs!

You should use the Bugzilla as instructed in the Technical Issues forum (hey, this one! Tongue) and search to see if your bug has already been posted.
Try to include the CVS version (I think Striker mentioned his last build is CVS 1.142) or at least the build date of the EXE.

Nope. Checked.

Also, Striker asked for bugs relating to his baby builds to not be posted in the officially sanctioned place. Probably pure CYA, but I'm respecting his wishes. That leaves right smack dab here as the only place for me to contribute any beta (or in this case, pre-alpha) testing.

Speaking of which, my general sound quality has taken a noticable hit in the last build. Near constant skipping and scratching, plus the synching dropped off a bit. It wasn't exactly perfect before, so I'd advise against reverting to the previous......um.....thingie with the code and stuff and keep plugging away. I know there's something new with mixSDL vs. SDL_mix, although I have no idea what the hell that means.

Small price to pay for having correct melee and lander clocking. Although, I have noticed a tiny little "hang" in the lander controls, where it seems the directional keys continue to register a split nanosecond after I release them. Maybe it's a wetware problem and my arcade skills took the week off.

More detail for the lander text-advance bug: It coincides with an inability to skip ahead in the autoscan. If you spot it, time to save.

I inquired, and it's okay if you submit bugs from the CVS build, AS LONG AS YOU INCLUDE THE TIMESTAMP AND/OR CVS VERSION OF THE BUILD.

Sorry for the extreme emphasis, I just want that to be very clear Wink

Bug in the 15/2 version?
« Reply #35 on: February 17, 2003, 02:15:26 am »

Can you confirm the following bug?

New game.
Go to the moon.
Shoot all the thingies.
Collect all the mineral.
Now enter the structure on the moon.
After the first page of text the game hangs.
It responds to F1 and F12 though so something is still alive.

Is this a known error?

Best regards
Lars.

I'll try to confirm this too.
Does anyone have problems with conversations? for example, I went to the Utwig's bomb planet (Zeta Hydas IIb I think) with the fixed Ultron, and chose the "Hey guys, guess what we got.. THE ULTRON!"

and there was just no reply.. his mask-mouth moved as if he was trying to utter something but the game just hanged there, (the music kept going and all but he didn't say anything, so I had to quit)
It happend again with Talana (when the lights were off... haha Wink)

Anyone had these things?

I've had these exact two bugs.

The Zeta Hyades is a stack underrun, and is because there's a commented-out bit of dialog (kind of like remTHIS SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK) and it was fixed in the CVS about 10 min before I reported it. Get the latest.

The Talana hang is just an ongoing thing. It's well known and has been since the beginning, so I guess it must be trickier than it seems.

So I'm about to go up against the Sa-Matra, and I've been putting it off for about a week. I've used too many hints and walkthroughs so far, so I'm going to go in totally unarmed with any knowledge about it, even as to where the hell it is (back in the SC2 day I never got this far). Wish me luck, the fate of the galaxy rests in my hands. I'm off to d/l the ending now.

It kept freezing when I was talking to Taleena too (when the lights went out).  I was forced to continue the game with a totally plutonic relationship.

Lars:

The lander dialog screen freezes on me too.

It doesn't happen all the time, so just save and load around it. Er, save exit load, to be more precise. Thankfully you're not far enough in the game that it would matter much if you had to start over.

Keep an eye out for this. EVERY time you spot an energy source/artifact, save. One clue it's about to happen is when you can't skip/ -> advance the autoscan. Of course, sometimes you spontaneously develop it on the surface, so good luck.

On this latest build, I'm having a problem.  In the mycon-syreen scenario, I get to the part where you need to go tell the mycon about the planet for their deep children, and they respond.  Then nothing.  The mycon don't leave, the syreen don't do anything but repeat the plan, and since I can't get to the surface, I can't get the chmmr and can't win the game.  Is it just an imperfect memory causing this, ie, I forgot to do something I need to do, or is it a bug?

Please ignore my above post, as that is not a bug, just player stupidity.  Sorry about that.
