Season One Bugs

These are all the bugs that currently exist in Season One. We used to post bugs in Petitions to Caveman Joe, but then a lot of people submitted the same bug over and over again. Then we posted bugs in the forum, but it became a pain in the arse to keep track of them all. Then Caveman Joe said "Hang on lads, I'll set up a proper bug tracking system," and never did. So this is what we're doing now.

There are two types of bug - gameplay bugs, and output bugs. Gameplay bugs include things like custom weapons and armour reverting to default names at a DK. Output bugs include typos, spelling and grammatical errors that never happen ever at all ever1)2), leftover references to Gold or Gems from LotGD core code, incorrect or untidy-looking colour codes, people's names changing from one sentence to another, and browser-related issues3).

Have at it!

Gameplay Bugs

  • Sometimes a Permanent Account just plain doesn't take. Nobody knows why.
  • Renewing a guard contract early gives exactly 30 days; it should be 30 days plus days remaining on the previous contract.
  • Automatic guard contract renewal doesn't renew anything.
  • Getting one of Dan's beers while at low HP will send you to the Failboat, but not immediately. 4)
  • Comment limit actually does nothing at all except serving laughs for the 'You have -3 comments left' bit.

Output Bugs

  • Some Dwellings management screens still show currencies as Gold and Gems.
  • Since you can never have more than two saved New Days in store, the text of the Use a New Day routine should say you can save up to two, not three, days.
  • The New Day reminder of days remaining on a guard contract doesn't handle multiple dwellings.
  • Safari browser (Mac) and Opera (Win): The combat bar doesn't change its length as hit points decrease; it stays full. The overlaid numbers are updated, the graphic isn't. To play in Safari you have to do it the old way, watching actual hit points and ignoring the bar.
  • Firefox browser (Mac): Cmd-Letter is interpreted as Letter if the page will accept it. Definitely a browser bug (Firefox on PC doesn't do this), but worth being aware of to ensure that irretrievable things won't happen by accident, e.g. using up a teleporter (T) when all one meant to do was open a new browser tab (Cmd-T). (That particular one has been fixed, but it's a hazard for every page.)
  • Buying permanent HP from Dan in the spider kitty gives references to gems rather than cigs.
1) except in player-submitted monsters
2) and sometimes in English versus American spellings
3) Unless these issues affect Internet Explorer 6. We don't give a shit about IE6.
4) It makes for some interesting effect when all 'Return to IC' links are replaced with 'return to the Shades'. If you click, /then/ you appear on the failboat.
