Moon base mission lockup
« on: February 25, 2003, 12:56:44 am »

Hi,

I upgraded to 0.2 today on my Windows box. Anyway I started my campaign all over again and got to the moon base mission again. Upon reaching the moon base it slowly spits back a report (which you can't seem to fast forward). It then stops and says: "(More)"

So I figure I have to push the space bar or the lift off button to continue. Pressing either of those didn't work. I went on and found that no key would make it go forward. Other buttons like pause(F1) and quit(F12) were responsive though so it wasn't hung. Anybody else run into this?

Yup.  

The prevailing wisdom is that it is triggered by changing the captain's (or flagship's) name.  Either keep the defaults, or save, quit and reload after changing it.

(and please mind the sticky post at the top of this forum.  bug reports belong in Bugzilla, not here.)

Ah cool thanks.

As for the bug report thing. Yea I saw that, but I wasn't convinced this was a bug, hence my post.

I ran into the same frustrating problem too, but try as I might to search the bug database, I couldn't find it. I don't think the original post was a bug report, but rather a "is this supposed to happen and how do I avoid it so I can play this awesome game?" Smiley

This was also reported as a bug specifically for 0.2

http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=187

It has been fixed (will show up in next release, but there appears to be a simple work-around)

"This bug is fixed in the latest CVS.  The work around is to save/load your game after changing ship/captain name (you actually may need to exit the game too, not 100% sure)"

You can download the new CVS version which should have this bug fixed in the 'Newer UQM Version' thread, here's the link:

Hope it helps.
