I uninstalled H3ANW today and now I want to reinstall it. After installing 3.7.0, do I have to install every patch(3.8 -3.9.0-3.9.2-3.9.2 hotfix) or just install the 3.9.2 and then 3.9.2 hotfix?

Herman,

Let me reiterate an invitation to join us in the issue tracker we have set up to tackle your list. There are files we can't find and some issues we need further feedback to replicate some of the issues. We look forward to you and anyone else joining up to help us move forward with the game in a public manner.

I've already added the new issues you listed in this thread and there is an issue I need the test scenario for and cannot replicate it otherwise:
Fly off the world CTD II (rufford)

Once again, the invite has no strings attached and no agreements required.

You should just need to download the latest 3.9.2, which is comprehensive so it will update any version from 3.7.0 forward to 3.9.2. The hotfix was only for those that downloaded the earlier 3.9.2 which worked fine with 3.8.0+ but had some issues installing on top of 3.7.0.

If I read you correctly, you installed the patch into a clean directory as if it was a full installation and then tried to run it. That won't work. It has to patch an existing 3.7.0 or later full installation. Point it to wherever you already have H3ANW installed and it will patch it up to 3.9.2.

Regards,

Thanks Eric, that was it!

Yes, I have read through the new AGSI tracking system and I think I'll decline that invitation. There seems to be no problem in how the list is already maintained on HarPlonkHQ. (http://www.harplonkhq.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18)

The previous invitation to discuss the list on HarPlonkHQ remains open to everyone interested in doing so. I feel more comfortable entering data into a system not controlled by AGSI, as I've previously stated to Mr. Gilman. Past experience has shown me that this is the best way to proceed. I know that all the list contributors wish Darren Buckley and Russel Sharp success with their Mantis bug-tracking system. Test files for the List of Issues such as:

Fly off the world CTD II

have already been posted to HarPlonkHQ. Although membership is required for download, it has never been denied to anyone (except 'bots). If there are any files missing or lacking, please do not hesitate to mention them and they will be found forthwith.

Russell,

I created an account for you on HarplonkHQ, but under another username (you can see it in the PM I sent to you). I saw your post only now

Sorry. However, you can change your username from the control panel if you wish

Check the PM for the other details.

Vince

We also invite anyone else to give their input on issues. There are several issues we have marked as needing feedback because of missing test scenarios or our not being able to reproduce them. Further, the public can now report issues they encounter using this issue tracker under the Public project. You can switch projects using the drop-down list in the upper right corner of the web application.

We want to establish a public and even-handed approach to handling these issues.

Anyone interested?



Russell, yes certainly interested. I can currently see only one test issue in Mantis. Freek

Try going to the top right-hand corner of the page and selecting "The List" from the "Project" window.

I actually see a lot of problems with how the list is maintained, including the lack of unique identifiers per issue, the lack of any progress tracking or meaningful feedback capability, the lack of proper search functions etc. etc. all of which are not an issue if all you want to do is save a game and call it a new bug every time something happens, but for those of us who actually want to check if the same bug has already been reported and what the status on it is, it is a problem.

I know from out past discussions that your opinion is that it is not your job to help fix the bugs, all you have to do is report them and then it is AGSI's problem to fix them, but as far as workload goes, maintaining the separate list is undoubtedly much more work than using the Mantis system, so what it comes down to is whether you are maintaining the list to help the game or to spite AGSI. Whether you want to see the bugs fixed and the list reduced or whether you are actually hoping for the list to grow.

Let's table that discussion please. It is our job to make progress on reported issues one way or another. While it would help to have Herman reporting any issues directly through Mantis and giving us additional feedback and help in Mantis, we can also do it without that help.

Herman,

I looked on Harplonk which just links to Gamesquad for the issues (which was down for much of the day). I could not find the example scenarios for the following:

- 0000188: CTD when hitting Report button
- 0000197: Fly off the world CTD II
- 0000011: Opening 3.6.3 scen causes crash

Please point me to where I can find them.

Also, for a look at what is and will be fixed in a soon to be released 3.9.3 (or 3.9.4, haven't decided where to draw the line), check out the Roadmap here:

http://hud3.harpoon5.com/mantis/roadmap_page.php

Thanks,

CTD when hitting Report button


A saved game file has been attached, but the crash did not repeat when it was re-run. However, a crash report was generated. It is attached.

quote:

Fly off the world CTD II

It is possible to 'fly off of the world' and cause CTD.



This CTD is different from the one previously solved by patch 3.9.2, "Fly off the world CTD", but leads from it.

An image has been added to facilitate running of the test scenario.

The crash log reads:
quote:


=====================================================
Crash information for this process:
