2nd Economy Demo

Revision 673

 

Released February 11, 2010

 

Released as:

3rd Economy Demo

 

Changes/Fixes

  • No changes listed!

 

 


 

 

Revision 698

 

Released February 18, 2010

 

Released as:

Update

 

Changes/Fixes

  • Confusing fish run-out messages
  • "Unknown unit type in Savegame" due to dead but not yet destroyed units not saving unit type
  • Weapons producing houses did not show produced weapons correctly, only one weapon of each type was displayed
  • Range Check Error in GetSlide function due to PrevPos being two tiles away from NextPos (fix unconfirmed, but 99% certain)
  • Buggy stone mining - in some maps, e.g. 15 TSK, stonemasons get stuck after grabbing a stone, because of the changing elevation and angle (the tile below them becomes unwalkable). Building a road near the trapped stonemason causes an error message like the described before, but then nothing bad happens - he just go home and keep working.
  • Some saves are impossible to load due to the range check error (bug in TKMPointTagList.Load)
  • Instabilities due to rare circumstances causing routes with canWalkRoad to fail when floodfill succeeds
  • Demolishing the building manually exits from the building menu, unlike in KaM, where it takes back to the building selection
  • Load/Save buttons have different order [to KaM], it's a bit confusing
  • Stuck (trapped) fish (especially in "Across the Desert") would try to use canWalk to solve interaction resulting in crashes
  • Returning to road did not use A* efficiently and so would fail over long distances

 

 


 

 

Revision 734

 

Released March 9, 2010

 

Released as:

Update

 

Changes/Fixes

  • The woodcutters planting animation is not visible, he simply disappears and reappears when he is done planting.
  • The woodcutter doesn't cut down trees, until all the available spots have been planted. In the original KaM a woodcutter would always cut down fullgrown trees in the first place, and only plant trees when there is nothing to cut down. (trees appeared to be fully grown a few minutes before they can be cut)
  • Troop/house buttons not working after clicking on terrain with them selected
  • Laborers are sometimes being trapped inside a digged construction plan
  • Range check error in TPR7, caused by group dying
  • Death task should not wait for action to finish, it should override any action under any circumstances. Otherwise strange things can happen visually e.g. dead units can be "pushed" using interaction sometimes not showing death animation.
  • In game settings uses old sytle brightness control.
  • Main menu options page doesn't refresh if you change the settings in game.
  • After digging house area workers will not continue to walk over other construction sites after leaving the one they made
  • Terrain is now flattened under houses placed at mission start
  • Demolished houses now leave a dug tile where the road used to be, rather than it just disappearing which looked odd
  • F11 statusbar shows wrong map size in loaded games
  • Because the delivery queue prefers closer deliveries, wares will always be delivered to closer buildings. (e.g. with two swine farms, closer one will get all the corn) Same with coal mines.

  • "Unit walk not fRouteBuilt" error. (Issue 28)
  • Clicking on anything during gameplay will shift viewport a little
  • StoneMines mission in r977 crashes on 39min for some delivery being performed twice

  • Occupied tile has no unit on it (Issue 27) (same as above)
  • Finished delivery will abandon twice and crash if unit dies while waiting to exit from destination house

Released as:

4th Multiplayer Demo

 

Changes/Fixes

  • Units should eat a maximum of 2 food items at the inn
  • Exporting GUI.rx gives a Range Check Error
  • Woodcutter would occasionally not cut certain trees
  • Falling trees sometimes looped back to the first frame of the animation making them appear standing again

  • Major A* pathfinding mistake from r1220 causing long/inefficient routes to be calculated
  • On slow computers first-time loading takes >20 seconds, meaning you are kicked from multiplayer games by the server
  • Fixed crash occurring on replay end
  • Chat button in multiplayer replay viewer was not properly disabled and upon click caused a crash
  • See-through hills (lighting flaw)
  • Server selection highlight in MP menu disappears when sorting by any column
  • Putting a "/" in a save name causes an error (probably other characters like \ ? | too, we should restrict allowed chars)
  • Entering text into port/room fields. They should accept only digits
  • Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL with a game running caused a "System error code 5" or "call to OS function failed" due to
  • Windows denying accesss to Mouse.CursorPos for a moment
  • Player count for a room should come from host, not the number of clients the server knows about (count can be wrong due to queriers)
  • Issue with empty saves names and misused whitespaces
  • The market should be blocked in the original campaigns/tutorial (maybe have an option to enable it starting at later missions, but it still ruins the balance IMO)

  • Do not allow to run multiple application instances at once to prevent multiplayer cheating

  • Allow listboxes to handle up/down arrows

  • Minimap preview in lobby, singleplayer and map editor menus
  • Placing road/field in MP should put a temp/fake visual markup until the real one can be added to make it appear responsive

  • Make fishes/watersnake to be more visible in MapEd

Released as:

5th Multiplayer Demo

 

Changes/Fixes

  • Improved units/objects visibility along map edges
  • Crash if you change locale and don't have OpenAL installed due to using non-blocking Application.MessageBox instead of MessageDlg
  • Dots and lines displaying on tile edges [Krom]
  • Producing more than 65k resources causes an integer overflow in PlayerStats

  • Placing a house above other players units in MapEd is now handled on mission load (it caused a crash before)
  • Pressing the "Restart" button during a replay would sometimes cause a crash
  • Resource harvesting now checks walking length rather than direct distance to stop e.g. woodcutters walking all the way around a mountain/river
  • Sandhills cause water next to shore tiles to appear darker with square edges
  • Fixed a crash with the AI retaliating against a threat
  • TSK 19 crashes due to an AI attack (at 06:38) target being off map
  • Attacking a house from the bottom right, soldiers will stack up rather than choosing a different free cell (flaws in TKMHouse.InReach)
  • If a woodcutter plants a tree where you placed a building site, the site gets canceled (very annoying) due to
  • AbandonWalk and conditions for multiple players building on a tile

  • Minimap in MapEd would show group members shifted by 1 tile to south-east
  • Messages show "MissionString out of range" after save+exit+load repeated twice (due to fMissionFile not being saved)
  • The map editor no longer removes the terrain data used by Krom's Map Editor, so you can use terrain brushes there after saving with the Remake
