I am so happy to see someone working on UQMHD.  It seems such a crime that all this amazing work just petered out right when it was so close to the finish line. I really hope dczanik is well.  Out of curiosity did you take a look at Mathew Bently's UQMHD-remix fork?  He attempted to fix a few of the outstanding bugs and managed to implement a Remix music friendly version of the intro/ending sequence.  Might be worth checking out to see if any of it is useful to you.  Personally, I would love the ability to choose between either A remix music intro/ending or original music, or at least have it be part of the music selection, but I'll take what I can get.

I removed the possible offending code that was making your Thraddash die out slowly, give the new binary a try and see if they still bite it.

Either I'm blind or a little bit confused, because the UrQuanMasters.exe on GitHub (in UQM-HD.0.7.2.MegaMod.zip) is 1 day and ye on SourceForge (in uqm-0.7.2-HD-MegaMod.zip) even 2 days older than the last one I downloaded (UQM-MegaMod-master.zip, which seems to be gone now). Nevertheless I've tried it and it didn't change anything. I used the save game where the genocide of the Ilwrath is imminent by a few days.

No, not the one in releases, the exe in the bin folder in the project files.

That's where all the pre-releases or incrementals will be staged.

Thanks. For some reason I've deleted my bookmark for this link. Maybe the site was down and I erroneously thought the pre-releases were removed.

I went way back to the save before I sent the Ilwrath against the Thraddash and commanded them again to attack. Regrettably it's still the same.
If I have to start a new game to take the change effect, that'll last awhile until I can give feedback.

I just got a new computer so it'll be a few days before I can fully set up, but I have another idea what might be causing this outcome, which means I can put the old code back.

This is taking awhile. I'm still working on it but things are moving extra slow.

I tried to defend the Thraddash from being killed by the Ilwrath, and awaited the invasion at the home system of the rhinos. But regrettably I was unsuccessful with that, it didn't work.

Does the game create a mass of Ilwrath enemies?  I thought it just sent the influence bubble.  If you could actually fight the war with the Thraddash it would be pretty awesome.

The Ilwrath will actually be there.
But it is the same as actively fighting Kohr-Ah: a single ship, however strong, has no influence on the mass of fleets fighting each other; and therefore no influence on the outcome of wars.

I've got my build environment set up again so has anyone got any new bugs besides the Thraddash still slowly disappearing?

So far everything else seems to work very well, I couldn't detect any issues besides the Thraddash still disappearing.

All in all good work, keep it up! Smiley

Alrighty then, I'll keep my eyes open but I believe I know what's causing them to disappear.

I've figured out what the problem is.

It is my math for showing the Thraddash SOI shrink 25%.

Seems I can't get it quite right.

This is what it is normally:

Code:
strength_loss = ThraddPtr->actual_strength; //This value is the size of the SOI
ThraddPtr->growth = -strength_loss / MaddLength;
ThraddPtr->growth_fract = ((strength_loss % MaddLength) << 8) / MaddLength;

This is what I hoped would work:

Code:
strength_loss = (ThraddPtr->actual_strength)/4;
ThraddPtr->growth = -strength_loss / MaddLength;
ThraddPtr->growth_fract = ((strength_loss % MaddLength) << 8) / MaddLength;

You see, I was hoping strength_loss would be a literal percentage of actual strength loss.

So now I can do one of two things; Figure out how to make the SOI shrink to 75% of its former value during the Ilwrath attack or comment out these lines and the SOI snaps to 75% at the end of the attack.

Maybe I should hop onto the IRC to see if one of the developers knows what the heck is going on with this math.

UPDATE:

...Damn am I stupid sometimes.

What I thought was a really janky fix to the problem, set growth and growth_fract to zero upon mission complete, was technically the correct way to deal with a perpetually shrinking SOI.

I neglected to look further at the other examples of a SOI shrinking at a set rate.

I'll be uploading the fix to Github soon enough. I just can't believe I completely overlooked all the other examples.

The new release is up and the S.O.I. indefinitely shrinking bug is fixed.

I've made another bugfix to quash the approximation of 25% reduction into a true 25% reduction to the Thraddash sphere of influence. While allied with the Thraddash after the Ilwrath battle.
