New Beta Build: Encounter and Hardware Fixes

I've just finished uploading new beta build 0.978b, which fixes a few significant bugs discovered in yesterday's beta build (0.977b).

Updates Included in Beta

The new beta includes the following fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that caused some encounters to re-trigger before player has a chance to leave hex.
  • Fixed a bug that caused software to be inaccessible inside accessible hardware when save game loaded.
  • Fixed a bug that caused software to be lost when dropped inside an hardware item that was "off."
  • Fixed a bug that caused data inside cellphones to always be locked.

The critical fix above is for encounters that trigger when players visit certain hexes. A bug in the "end turn" code was introduced in 0.977 that caused them to loop endlessly. This should be fixed now.

The rest of the fixes are some teething issues discovered in hardware/software since 0.977 went live.

I apologize for the inconvenience these bugs caused. I try to keep new builds as bug-free as possible, but I clearly missed a few in this last update.

As usual, let me know on the forums if there are any more issues using the new builds. And thanks for your patience!
