[BUG] Messages fail to stay deleted.


#1

I am being haunted by 3 messages so far. I delete them, and they come back when I restart the game. What information is needed to find and squish this bug?
And there is a screen shot of the three in another thread.http://positech.co.uk/forums/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=4036


#2

Same bug here. 1 message comes back when I restart the game, even if I deleted the message right before.


#3

Further… Messages seem to get corrupted… All three messages in my inbox say they come from me (they aren’t, of course.) Worse, the content of the messages is messed up. I read these messages before, and they don’t say the same as they did before (I think just truncated, but it may be worse.)


#4

I’ve noticed the

Joke. The Truncation as well. Spifomie sent me a message and now it says that I sent it, and its been cut off.

And can we have a reply button.


#5

Dang. I shall have to investigate.
And fix it…


#6

As another comment on the messages. I don’t need to know when I’m playing my own challenges. Unless there is a Spy disguised as me. In which case I need to be getting my flame thrower…


#7

Ah that’s a good point. I can’t replicate any problems with the challenges at my end yet, so I haven’t tracked down the problem :frowning:


#8

yep, im getting the same messages again and again.

So far I found that oldmessages.txt in C:\Documents and Settings[b][/b]\My Documents\My Games\GratuitousSpaceBattles\web contains them, will try to delete it.

edit. nah, I only managed to delete some old messages but there is one that keeps appearing whenever I start the game (one that it says I issued a challenge to myself, I did a few days ago).
Also I noticed that when I run the game there always appear a file named like tmp746.html with different number. It’s content is only:message,Message is not ours! response,false,


#9

How strange, I shall investigate…


#10

I’ve finally tracked it down, and it will be fixed (hopefully) in 1.29. Pesky formatting bug…


#11

I’m still getting this in 1.30, and my inbox has something like 300 messages (and counting) which keep coming back; dating all the way back into December. They were all deleted yesterday, and the day before that, and today. It’s happened quite a bit.


#12

All deleted messages reloaded again today.


#13

if you delete these files, does the problem go away:

\my documents\mygames\gratuitous space battles\web\messages.txt
\my documents\mygames\gratuitous space battles\web\oldmessages.txt


#14

Yes, that got rid of them.


#15

This solves the problem also for me.


#16

Not for me.
Since 1.31 I started to get them.
I get all non-deletable messages again and again (including the one from 27/12/09).


#17

I just got this bug.

Got 3 new messages, and about 7 - 8 others popped back into my inbox.
