Beta 1.20: Ship saves stop working


#1

My game is frequently getting into this state where saving ship designs no longer changes them in the deploy field. Exiting and reloading the game corrects the problem - the designs are getting saved after all, just not updated.

I haven’t found a pattern to this yet. I’m fighting a challenge sent to myself, so maybe there’s an overlap of ship data going on.

Also, my errors.txt inevitably grows to several hundred megabytes over a few days. Is there a limit on this file?


#2

The save button is dimmed all the time here.


#3

Exact timing where the save button go dim and do not come back, please follow the following steps to reproduce the error:

  1. Go to ship design
  2. Change the ship hull to anything other than the current ship hull
  3. the save button dim.

#4

you can just delete that file, but I’m interested to know what it is filling with.


#5

You cant save a ship design without a name, and changing hull blanks the name, but you should be able to type one in. Can you not do that?


#6

Just this repeated message:

28/3/2015 - 21::34 - Untranslated HRESULT [1]
28/3/2015 - 21::34 - Shader Effect failed to find technique
28/3/2015 - 21::34 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL
28/3/2015 - 21::34 - failed

Update: The carriers in a self-sent challenge will ‘inherit’ some changes made after I issued the challenge - I have removed the guns from one of my designs, and the corresponding ship in the challenge has lost them as well. I have to quit and reload for this to happen. Prior to that, it seems to cause the bug I reported here initially.

These ships have the same design name as each other.

I’ve just coded a fix today that should address a number of screw-ups when this was the case… thanks for reporting it!
