Bugs 1.29.3
« on: November 30, 2009, 03:52:53 AM »
New bug thread!

Let's start off with XML.  Something is royally buggered in either the xml files or the parsing function (or wherever the parsing function sends the data, what the hell do I know?).  When you start a new game, the program throws a conniption and then crashes if there are any xml girls files.  If there is an xml items file, the second window (debug screen?) shows a whole crapload of errors (I'd paste some here, but for some reason it won't let me copy text from the window) - my guess is one error for each item in the file(s).  The game starts, but there are no items in the shop.  The gamelog file is of less than zero help, as it records none of the badness going on.

A second bug I noticed is that the save files now appear in the root directory as well as the save directory.  The .mast files are apparently gone, though I suppose someone might have decided that they are redundant, so it may not be a bug.
Capitalization is the difference between "I had to help my uncle Jack off a horse" and "I had to help my uncle jack off a horse."

The parser is tinyxml, which is quite widely used. So it's probably not that. Which means it'll be my fault.

When you start a new game, the program throws a conniption and then crashes if there are any xml girls files. 

Yep, it does. Got a fix for that ready, so should be sorted soon :)

If there is an xml items file, the second window (debug screen?) shows a whole crapload of errors (I'd paste some here, but for some reason it won't let me copy text from the window) - my guess is one error for each item in the file(s).  The game starts, but there are no items in the shop.  The gamelog file is of less than zero help, as it records none of the badness going on.

Me being lazy. I've started making sure all errors go to the log file, but I still have some I need to retro-fit.

A second bug I noticed is that the save files now appear in the root directory as well as the save directory.  The .mast files are apparently gone, though I suppose someone might have decided that they are redundant, so it may not be a bug.

Odd. None of my changes made them reduant. I wonder if one of the save files is the .mast file with a borked name.

I'll get on these ASAP.

Looking into it, that's exactly what the problem is.  The .gam.mast file gets saved in the root directory without the .mast extension.

Yeah, this release was more a test of the xml before 1.30 is released.

Got the XML problem: I changed the capitalisation on some tags to try and be consistent in my naming conventions.  Easy fix.

[edit]

Meh, need to do the girl files too...

The brothel icons (red lips) are missing on the town screen.

But love the load time one this version, way faster.

That sounds like the icon name issue again. Try going into the resources folder and renaming BrothelOn0.png to BrothelOn.png and BrothelOff0.png to BrothelOff.png

Let me know if that fixes it :)

I noticed a couple of things on my first play through:

1) free girls default to poor accommodations when they used to default to adequate.  It's fine if the change was intentional, but players should note that it is now different.

2) free girls default to a house percentage of 0 instead of 60.  My guess is that they are now using the value from the "house" field in the .girls file, though I haven't messed around with it to confirm yet.

The "Accom" buttons change the level of accommodations for the girl.  Higher accommodations cost more and are supposed to deliver benefits, though I haven't seen any need for setting them higher than "Adequate"

Sounds like a bug. I'll take a look.

Anyone want to take a crack at it? I have a ton of coding to do, but I'll happily answer questions where things aren't clear.

I'm sure this bug has been posted before, but I'll restate it.
Trying to send Carrera (Monster girl) to the dungeon freezes the game.  I got her from walking around town. 
Also, I noticed that even with house % set to 60%, the end of week summery said I kept all the money.

This is either a bug or proof on how badly balanced rivals are. I just "defeated" a rival on week 2 with by only placing my guards as Training=4 and Kidnapping Girl=4 even do I go 0 girls and everything >.<

proof, the gangs have not been touched, though one of other rivals could have done it though..
