During a few recent FC on-line games, I ran across a bug where the tabs on the Main page (where the ship SSD and Energy, Fire, etc are located) would not refresh correctly. It was most problematic when trying to fire direct-fire weapons. Clicking on the SSD (to select the weapon) had no effect. We resorted to firing and adjusting energy manually (which, of course, would not list the weapon as fired in the Weapons Status tab).

This seems to have occurred to me at least once during every game. It also occurred to the others that were playing. Sometimes, if we save, exit the client, then return and load the saved game, the issue goes away. Other times, it does not fix itself.

Let me know if I can provide any additional info. Thanks,

Garrett

Also, let me know if I should email bug reports, rather than post them here.

This has happened to me too. Could you see about fixing it Andro?

Then again, at that time I didn't have the full client update

gar1138,
Could you send me a bug report? To create a bug report, go to the "Help" menu and select "Create Bug Report...". This will create a zip file. Send it to sfb_online at sfbonline.com .

Bug report submitted. Note that the bug did not actually occur when I submitted the report, but hopefully this will give you something to go on. I'm happy to assist in any way, just let me know what I can do. Thanks,

Garrett

I think I see the problem. But could you tell me the ships that you two were flying?

Actually, it was three of us, flying a Fed CL (Me,), Fed NCC (Sean), and a planet killer (Gar) He named the killer Munchy Very Happy

During the game that Pinecone mentioned above, there were other ships that were added at first, then removed before the game started (we were deciding which ships to use). I don't know if that has any bearing or not.

It has also occurred for me during a 1 vs 1 game. I was the Klingon D5 against a Fed NCL (squadron scale).

I believe it also happened to me during my first demo game (Fed CA vs Klingon D7), before I had a full subscription.

If you have an idea about the issue, let me know how I might be able to consistently reproduce it and I can take some screen shots for you (if that would be helpful).

Thanks,

Garrett

Looks like I found the problem. It seems to be related with synching.

Did another person enter the room while you guys were playing? I think this would be the cause.

Yes, I entered their game to watch while it was in progress. Should we not enter games until the client update comes out?
