- Temporal Clone and Player inconsistency. - Cannot reproduce

- Unintuitive behavior with "Stunnable" and "Pushable" attributes - Intended

I have a feature request thread about force arrows that isn't on the list here, so I'm noting it.

The thread title isn't very informative because I wasn't sure how to sum up what I wanted. My initial request was that connections to force arrows be maintained when you replace one arrow with another in the editor. This would be more convenient and would only affect the editor as opposed to actual rooms, so the only potential issue I can see is if it's difficult to program; I have no idea if it would be.

There were also suggestions in that thread of allowing for independent connections between force arrows and yellow doors on the same tile. Right now you can only open/close the door. This has issues of working out how the interface should be handled; both how you set it in the editor, and how it should be communicated to the player. Those issues were discussed a bit in the thread, but there wasn't a consensus as far as I could see.

There's also walking through fluff while on a platform.

Also, 2 really minor UI-related feature requests for completionists:
-An "X/Y challenges completed" thing on the challenge list so you don't need to scroll through it to see if you've gotten them all.
-Showing the total rooms explored/conquered on the Restore screen (independent of saves) so that you can actually get 883/883 in TSS. Possibly in the form of explored/conquered/total for a conquered hold, and just explored/conquered for an unconquered hold?

How about Buttons on Notices panel don't seem to do anything.

One that I don't think has been mentioned yet, but doesn't really need a whole thread... Bumping the left or top wall of the room (col/row 0) has almost no visible effect.

I've updated the list to reflect current development and added the reported issues to a separate category.

Pinnacle, can you create separate threads for each of these features? It'll be easier to track progress and all.

This serious bug dramatically interferes with the ability to construct holds. I would strongly nominate it for the next patch.

Swords held by clones flicker when player invisible.

And kind of related, but perhaps intended? When something holds their weapon over you (but doesn't kill you), their weapon is drawn behind the player. This is different from any other weapon-holding-over situation, I think.

More:
Halph Dying / The eyes!
Switching between clones uses an undo slot
Delay when switching to main menu
(There's also a delay when going back to the game from the settings screen)

Also a hold-related bug:
The challenge in Eye of the Storm: 1S1E is completed if you hit the orb on turn 0.

Please add:

- REV Fuses lit late in turn - A fuse lit by explosion from spike trap, fire trap, or briar growth now burns as expected. This breaks some (most?) demos in TSS:FH:1N1E.

I fixed, tested, and pushed a code change for this one back in October. I don't know if Mike has reviewed it.

This one would likely be an easy fix:
Rattlesnake can traverse fire trap if tail segment is killed on same turn


Also, there seems to be a pretty serious bug where the player's weapon is retained from room to room. This can really break holds. (It seems to happen fairly regularly in Pass the Hold Around: Team Synergy 1E)

Alright everyone, here is the plan.

5.0.2 is now officially named "5.0.2: Stabilization". The reason for that is we want to stabilize the engine as much as possible so that when someone makes a hold they don't have to think "gee, is this weird interaction intended or are those lazy developers going to steal all my roomsies and my scorsies away from me because they're lame?" No, it's going to be all chocolate and prringles, because I like both of those. The plan is to have a stable version of the game where we can have conversations like this:

The bugger asking questions: Is it intended that---
The almighty community: Yes
TBAQ But are you sure that it---
TAC: Yup

That's the plan!

----

Jokes aside, I've updated the list of bugs above and included all of the bugs I want to fix or at least investigate before 5.0.2. These includes only things which directly affect what I call DROD ruleset, basically the mechanics and interactions of the actual game. I am going to ignore any requests which add new features or bugs which are not about the ruleset. If you find anything else or can help me with coming up with a sane decision about what to do with some of those things I'll be more than glad.

Remember that even though it might seem like I have any kind of authority here, the only kind of authority I have is I may refuse to code something. But also know that I genuinely care for the game, care for the internal consistency of the rules, care for not having unintuitive exceptions and care for puzzle potential and I don't care if it ends being my way, as long as you can convince me that your solution meets the above criteria. So keep that in mind when discussing things with me and I have really strong opinions as they are just that - opinions.

Alright, let's make 5.0.2 wicked sick!

Hey, that sounds like the story of my life :P

To your point, for minor version updates, we do typically only include bug fixes and UI/performance improvements. New hold features (e.g., script commands) should be confined to major version updates, because we need to bump an internal hold version # whenever we do this. This means that in order to play holds exported from new builds, we have to force everyone to upgrade to that next major version in order to play it.

Lots of good stuff here! Hoping to get involved more soon.

Here's another bug thread that came up in chat this evening. It doesn't seem to be included in this list, but is pretty important:

Gamestate Changes from Clone Switching

Switching between clones can change the movement order of the clone entities, which can cause all kinds of movement-order-related effects.

Is there time to squeeeze in another feature request? I would like the list of objects in the "build" command to include force arrows.

It's been implemented as a side effect of adding more Wait for item commands - http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=39961&page=0#398282

icon A severe bug in 5.0.2 (+1)  
A month ago I reported a severe bug in 5.0.2.

For whatever reason my posting was completely ignored.

Here it is again:



Please open Gunthro and the Epic Blunder, Smugglers Maze, 4N1W

and watch the attached demo in 5.0.2.1005.

The behaviour of the roaches is very strange. This is a severe bug that is not reproducible in 5.0.1

Best wishes,

adS

Hi all,

im playing JTRH 5.0 in TSS 5.0.1.6060 (latest available version). In Level 22 3N 3W i encountered a strange behaviour. Looking at the Youtube Video from Alex Diener (JTRH Episode 37 from Time 1:10:19) you can see the behaviour of the eye movement once he is moving in the upper eyeline. The eyes move in a pattern of 3eyes empty square 2eyes towards the player in the video. In my version however the pattern changed to 2eyes one empty square then 3eyes. That make the solution from Alex Diener not possible anymore (as i tried to replicate it). Either im missing something obvious here or the eye movement behaviour has changed.

Here the link to the youtube video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8uP_Je2OQs&index=37&list=PLBk6-z6v3pDKag06KlQN3uun312_7NBB_

Did you replicate his moves precisely? It may be a result of monster movement order. I can't tell from the video.

I'm routing TSS and I came across a really minor bug in Seeding Grounds. Normally, Beethro gives some inital dialogue the first time he encounters a room he has turned a seeding beacon on and discovers monsters have respawned. This works everywhere except in 1N1E when approached from the south. Although the room is repopulated with monsters, Beethro doesn't give his dialogue. Yet if he goes to 1E with the seeding beacon on, he'll give his dialogue as if it's the first time he's encountered the behavior.

I only discovered this because I'm routing the optimal path through the levels to collect all the challenges and secrets.

Hi zex20913,

from what i can tell i replicated his moves exactly. Also looking at the decreasing fuse I'm on the exact same move.

How about an option to disable the clock? This could be good for players who want to play DROD in more classic style. It is possible to disable undo and checkpoints, but not the clock (without modding the game). I think a good placement for "Show Clock" option (enabled by default) will be "Special" section in the "Settings" tab, next to "Show Checkpoints".

This feels like a feature that would not get a lot of use. If you want to have this in your game, feel free to make a completely transparent clock and add it to your INI file.

If I were less lazy, I'd take a picture of my monitor with a sticky note placed over the DROD clock.

In "Teaming with Tendry" I found a room where I could "strike" an orb by simply moving into it with my back and the sword never comes in contact with it. I've attached a demo of the odd behavior.

It's not a bug. Stepping on a Power Token lets you hit orbs with your body. This is mainly used for monster player roles, but it also applies to player roles with weapons and I've seen a fair number of rooms that depend on this behavior.

It's not very well-documented in the main games, though, so I can see why you were confused.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I did have one more super minor thing to point out: When Beethro visits the LCS and has revealed enough plot to be able to see all his inventory slots but hasn't yet cleared any Patronage levels, it doesn't show a number and this leads to the somewhat confusing dialogue box: "You have thwarted of the Patrons' plans to enslave the surfacers."

Just introducing a "0" would clear up any confusion: "You have thwarted 0 of the Patrons' plans to enslave the surfacers."
