    Working on Apoc for a while, and came across a bad senerio…

    Apoc carries 4? unlimted weapons… a baby missile, riot, dirt, and pen laser.

    I didn’t have any of them.

    I actually ran OUT of weapons… I don’t know why I thought of it, but I happened to hit TAB (key that changes weapon) .. and my game crashed.

    This gives the best chance of working but at the cost of graphical detail.
    You can adjust this later in the Scorched3D display settings dialog.
    Note: Most problems can be fixed by using the very latest drivers for your graphics card.

    I don’t know why I was not given any of the unlimited weapons, obviously thats a problem…

    But the fact that I crashed when I hit TAB… that’s not right. I seen nothing in the to-do/done regarding this.

    It’s not only you, it’s hapened to me, and several player’s on 3 of my
    servers.

    It’s some form of glitch that occurs when a player connects, and somehow
    the -1 items get set to 0 zero.

    It often cure’s itself as you restart a new-game, but will not cure if you
    simply disconnect and return, notably if you have it set to remember
    player’s…

    The item’s can be then Bought for free, if they’re normally such.
    However if you’ve got no weapon’s at all, it may crash or look wierd.
    As has happened on Scavanger, during marathon nite where player’s ran
    out.

    Ohh yeh, I kinda remember this sucker now. Never happened to me on SH so I didn’t remember too well 😛

    Did a search too.. earlier topic: http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3370



    The closest thing resembling this in ToDo and Done is:

    Fixed: Tank information is still displayed when a player has no weapons

    But that’s not the same thing.



    I dunno what causes the weapons to become un-unlimited but…

    I’m betting the crashing due to the TAB button must be an array-boundry issue.

    Since the list of weapons owned is held in an array, TAB simply moves the user +1 though the array. When at the end of array it resets to position 0.

    But when the array is empty, there is no position 0. But the request for information dosn’t care.. it wants position 0. So everything goes to hell.

    I’ve fixed the tab crashing issue. I think I have already fixed the other issue in 40.1 with some of the other changes I have made.
