bugs: no new armies, missing buttons

Post by slug2 » Tue Oct 07, 2003 4:30 am

in version 3.42 (and previous i think) occasionally something will happen that causes teh Cards/Fortify/End Turn buttons to be grayed out.
the menu options still work though.

worse though is a bug where at the beginning of the turn, i am given new armies but can't place them.
no matter how many new armies allocated to me, if i click in a country it only puts 1 in the country and then advances to combat phase.
if i shift click, i get no armies at all.
this has happened multiple times.

Any Lux error messages get printed out into the /Applications/Utilities/Console application. The next time these bugs affect you please open that application and post what it says.

thanks

how about an error log file in the lux folder? that would be easier for non-computer gurus to find w/o looking?

cool. out of curiosity, what the hell is your avatar? oh- there's another suggestion- how about optional 70x70 avatars for players? could be displayed in the info box and/or where it says whose turn it is?

My avatar is a photo of a novelty glowing icecube. It was being used as a prop for a bad kung-fu movie me and some friends were making. Everyone in the movie was fighting for the cube. It was going well until our star girl ditched the project.

and let me say that I quite enjoy your avatar...

interesting indeed. thank you, sir. twas hard to decide what to crop and what not to crop; had to get it in there w/o losing the focus (tongue) while still making it easy to see who it is and wtf is going on. when that happened, right after the show i got on the somethingawful forums and found a high res pic of the event. anyway, how's about signatures in these forums?
