[Bug] Technologies gifted to another race not being retained
« on: October 28, 2016, 08:46:32 PM »
So every time I gift a tech to a race, if I then save the game, exit, and then reopen, the gifted techs are never retained.

Save attached.  Will post to Mantis as soon as Mantis is back online.

This is happening for any technologies, not just the ones I gift.  Issue was already reported by someone else here.  I know you guys are busy, but PLEASE tell me someone's looking at this...

In light of how busy Keith is being with AIW2, is there a way for me to look at bug fixing?  I obviously don't have access to the raw source code, but if there's another level where I could lend a hand, I'd be happy to.

Crap!  Sometimes the forums don't do a good job of notifying me of stuff, and there are a lot of subforums to check.  Other times it's a derp on my end, and I think that may have been the case this time.  I will take a look and see what I can figure out for a patch today -- so sorry about this!

Not a problem.  I know you guys are busy, and I don't mean to whine (much :P).
Seriously, if there's a way for me to help out with any bug-fixing on TLF, I wouldn't mind helping.

Are you a coder?  I can't recall; I feel like I should know.  If so, then absolutely I'd welcome having another pair of hands on this.  If you want to take a crack at it instead, that would certainly save me time for other things, but it's up to you.  I'll check on this particular one either way, but shoot me an email at chrispark7 at gmail dot com if you want to do anything beyond that.

Thanks, will test tonight.  Still working on getting the game to build on my home PC, but all the tools installed successfully and at least appear to be working...
