Hi all,
Just wondering who we talk to about a few little tweeks to the FC online program.
Photon overloading at the end of turn
Support for hydran fighters.

Other problems that we hope will be fixed:

Gorns have that "End of turn" screen where all you can do is hit the X in the upper right corner. (OK and cancel don't work)

You are being charged 1 point of energy for held plasma Fs.

I didn't expereince this myself, but there were problems with players and observers not seeing the SSDs. Saving, exiting the room, re-entering and then loading seemed to fix this problem.

Also had a problem with the tabs not working. i.e. stuck in "Fire" or "Energy" or "Movement", etc. Same save/exit/reload seemed to work.

... but fixing that "not being able to dump Overload energy into the photons at the end of the turn and have to do everything manually" issue would save me lots of brainpower.... Smile

... and I don't have that much brainpower to begin with!! Smile

Thanks very much in advance!

EOT screen is fixed.

Was the 1 point of energy for held Plasma-Fs on a Squadron scale ship? (I am assuming that this is for non-Plasma-F launcher)

Next time you can't switch tabs, please send me a Bug Report. Sounds like something is failing internally and the bug report should be able to tell me where.

Yes, it was for squadron scale -- but unfortunately the 1 point was charged for held Plasma Fs in Plasma F launchers.

Hey Fishfood -- back me up here. This really happened, right? It's not just that I don't know how to add??? Smile

Uh, I think the problem was not that. But it was a problem with the Probe launcher always charging (i.e. paying 2 points of power). This was fixed with the latest update.

Double-check with the latest client to confirm.

I did send half of a Hydran card to Paul yesterday and he said I did it right, so I'll try to do one ship per day.

If you want to send me a few I'd be happy to work on some of them. Either way... very nice of you. Hydrans are my fav.

It wouldn't save any time for me to send them to you (assuming you have a Mac and Freehand 8, otherwise, you couldn't even work on them at all).

I'm going through them pretty fast.

I have sent the squadron Dragoon and Knight already, and the Lyran CA.

Hey Andromedan,

You asked me to send a bug report the next time the switch tabs incident happened.

I went to the main SFB Online screen, hit help and create bug report. I hope this was the right thing to do, since it wasn't within the FC game window we were using.

Anyway, it saved it on my hard drive and asked me to mail it someplace. Unfortunately I was a little preoccupied with Canuck's 8 drones bearing down on me and I forgot the email address.

Did I do it in the right place? And if yes, where would you like me to send it? Thanks..............

Yes. You did it in the right place. I will PM you the Email address.
