Can't move certain survivor man guy dudes.
« on: June 18, 2013, 01:25:32 AM »
So, while a couple of friends and I were playing, we started running into random survivors not moving when told, or doing much of anything. I was wondering if this was a side effect of low morale,  as it seems to coincide with me running out of food, or a bug.

Cheers, welcome to the forums!

In terms of the guys not being able to be given move orders... hmm, are they already red from having been given orders during a turn?  If you moved them and then did something that does not advance the turn (like a cave or a level up tower), then that would explain the confusion.  Beyond that I'm not really sure; if you have a zipped world file, we can check it out for you, though.

So I ran into the bug again, I recorded it, but on loading the save in single player, and restarting the server, it resolved itself.

It was able to move to certain spots, but not everywhere, couldn't build, also, when I reloaded, it was in a different spot for some reason, I think the server(I'm hosting on the same computer I'm playing) is desyncing or something.

Also, despite the save name, the bug happened in multiplayer.

Thanks much for the video and such -- that's definitely very odd, and seems to be some sort of desync.  We're looking into making an auto-resync function so that if something like this happens, it will just repair itself.  I'll let you know as soon as we have that ready, hopefully in the next couple of days.  Sorry for the trouble!

Np, thanks for the quick responses, glad to know the devs care so much about their game. We managed to beat it, even with the problems, after realizing we could restart the server to save borked npcs.

Okay, whew, sorry for the delay on this.  I can't claim credit for the fix, but it was a lengthy thing for Keith.  The new version 1.007 is now out, and knock on wood you shouldn't see this anymore:  http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,13435.0.html

Thanks!
