Bug Hunt

Hey all! Hope everyone had a good weekend. I had Indian food for the first time in, well, years I guess. And man, it was good! I used to get it quite a lot, but since we moved, we haven't had much luck until this weekend. We should've tried this place sooner!

Today, I spent part of the morning catching up on forum posts, and seeing how the new build is faring. So far, it seems fairly good, though there are definitely some show-stoppers in there.

One of the biggest bugs occurs when conversing with Martha's Army soldiers. I forgot to set a flag in their conversations, and the result is endless talking that can break one's game. So until I can upload the new fix, refrain from talking with them. No matter how much they ask! (Ceasefire is a perfectly peaceful alternative.)

There is also a bug with the search move in battle. I recently added a special version of that move for DMC drones, and I guess it broke the original version. I have a fix for that, as well.

I went through Paul's latest batch of sounds, so we'll have audio for things like fires, clown heads, helmets, and other items that have been missing. As of this batch, every physical item has a sound now. Some are borrowed from other, similar items, but at least they have something.

I fixed various other minor issues, such as typos in Stoat's conversation, a loot error in random containers, missing fatal results from a death encounter, and missing item choices in the finale.

I still think I have a few to sort out tomorrow. E.g. why creatures suddenly go hidden in combat. Hopefully, I can get a new patch up soon! Have a good night, all!

Congrats about finding that great place with indian food! In fact, i had a major deja-vu when i've read the food was good and that you regret you didn't try the place sooner...

It took few moments to realize where i heard this already...

Then i tried to find you a youtube link - but, there is none... One day, there was, but not anymore.

So i've got the piece and uploaded it myself, only to find out it is blocked worldwide - geez, how can they block such a classic! It's the sort of piece which earns them MUCH more if made free - better than any advertisement they pay money for. Idiots...

So here it is for you, fair direct link, full duration is 5m 13s, and the part i'm directly talking about - starts at 3m 18s mark. Though it's best to watch all of it, if you've never seen it. It's epic! :)

P.P.S. Metal sauce pan rulez. See? I always knew it! :D

Love that metal sauce pan in- joke… also, fantastic show, despite it's low-borw humour. Or because of it? never quite sure…

Its humour is primitive only on a 1st glance, though. There is the 2nd layer to it: it's made of parodies to well-known fight scenes from movies (possibly some being not so well-known, too?). I guess there are quite a few of them, one after another, back to back. I am only sure about three of them, so far:
- blade-cut and own-blood-tasting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=6urUSWssqYQ#t=50
- jamming acceleration control and fighting in a subway train, with train crash at the end: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=tph2hqk78Jk#t=62
- a fight scene on top of a rolling large wheel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfkqKJohuTI&feature=player_detailpage#t=130

Then, there is also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIzuPga0Ra8 may be related, too. A honorary mention, huh? :)

By the way, if you recognise any other movies parodied there, - please lemme know! :)

I thought "They Live" had the most NEO-Scavenger-like fight scene. But maybe I'm wrong...
