combat bugs

i'm not sure if anyone else has this problem, but the combat tends to crash for me, maybe 90% of the time. i it usually looks like in the picture below and i can't click anything.

Hey User,

Someone mentioned a very similar issue yesterday right around the time I was uploading the new build. They mentioned that it stopped happening when they reloaded the browser, which makes me think it could have been caused by loading the game as I was updating the build.

Could you try force reloading the webpage with the game?
Windows: ctrl + F5
Mac/Apple: Apple + R or command + R
Linux: F5

If that doesn't work, can you tell me which date appears alongside the v0.946b on the title screen?

Thanks, and hopefully we'll get this sorted out soon!

Looks like there was a bug causing the game to crash. I've uploaded a new build which should hopefully fix this issue. The build will be labeled "August 10, 2012" near the version number on the title screen. Let me know if that helps!

I've noticed a bug where all combat choices vanish with the exception of 'take cover'.
Sorry I haven't fully tested, but it seems to happen often when I'm knocked down (ie: as if take cover is replacing dodge roll, stand up, pull down).

It sounds a bit suspicious, especially if you had "take cover" but not "get up." "Dodge roll" and "pull down" are both optional moves, and there's a legit chance neither will show up normally. However, "get up" should appear if you're able to move at all.

Do you recall if you had any conditions like crippled legs?

I've only found the bug a couple of times. My character had no leg injuries, and no other significant injuries. I'll keep hunting and be ready to note stuff down. It's not exactly a game killer though.

Edit: just started up a game. Unluckily met a dogman about 2 turns in, who hit me and I got the bug (I'm assuming this is a bug).

In this case I was stunned, but pretty sure I wasn't in previous cases. Not fallen in this case either, so goodbye to that theory.

Edit 2: Got another instance after doing melee surge against some guy. I have the savegame if you want it.

Wait.... where are the savegames stored?

:O

"Stunned" will prevent you from taking any moves except taking cover. It's a combat effect like "fallen" or "recovering." So this might be normal. Doing a melee surge actually gives you the "recovering" status, which also skips your turn.

Re: savegames, they're stored in different places on different OSs:
