After installing the 1.02 I went to have a quick game and decided to go for a challenge. Downloaded Cliffski’s fleet and went for a battle. I lost the first one (hey! I forgot to change the ranged cruiser’s maximum range :P), so I went back to the deployment, loaded my setup and decided to switch the buggy frigate torpedoes (the ones changing into anti-fighter rockets) for something useful. Added a more expensive module, saved the frigate and quit. BAM! Crashed. Restarted, tried it again. Crash! The error from the error.txt is as follows:
1/9/2009 - 23::28 - Assertion failure:filename:…\src\GUI_DeploymentAIIcon.cpp,linenum:23,build:Beta 1.02
Anyway, I changed the frigate by accessing the designer from main menu and it seemed to work. I started the battle, crushed the fleet and two issues appeared:
The statistics listed that 2 of my cruisers had taken over 100% hits as seen here - img136.imageshack.us/img136/9707/statisticsi.jpg . However, there was more to this victory - although I hadn’t used about 800-900 cash I hadn’t gained any honor. At all. I wonder whether my previous defeat could’ve caused this issue.
Nevertheless the patch is awesome; so far it’s fixed most of my issues and the challenge browser is a big improvement.
