For some reason past few matches (I've had to close and try again like 6 times now) everytime (just about) the clan Delaphatak plays a match. I'm not sure if just a little AI bug or what. (It doesn't crash, it just freezes like it did in beta sometimes, and never moves).

Any idea on this error? I can't get past the first week of matches because Deflection/Delpahak always freeze. I'd really like to get to Division One (again Razz).

Sorry but no updates on this yet. The saved game error is higher on the tasks list. The saved game has been downloaded and I'll look into it fairly soon.

Ok many thanks! Smile

It must have something to do with how powerful the clans are I feel. Both have 26 units and are very powerful! hehe. Look forward to update. Smile

I've now checked the saved game out and this bug is caused by Delaphatak having a cloned centaur. What's causing that I don't know yet but some safety checks have now been added so that this can't happen again on the next version.

Now that those security checks are there, the game will fix the saved game and I tested your saved game and it worked.

In case you don't see my note on the sticky, that fix doesn't work. My saved game has just been destroyed by this bug. The offending clan has the same unit duplicated about 10 times.

That fix worked for this particular case at least. Something must have either destroyed the fix since it or there's some other related bug. It is a tough one to fix but I hope I'll come up with a solution in a patch rather than wait till BoN 2 when I'll dedicate my time to the game.

Before each AI game, couldn't you add a routine that would compare each name and a couple of abilities against each other player on the same team, then delete any duplicates of that unit? It's probably the same thing you did before, but just in a different place.

Or is it harder than that?

It doesn't really fix the original problem, but having a saved game get ruined like that has really curbed my enthusiasm about playing... I can't get into a career mode game if I can't trust the stability of the career. Sad

That's something I did before among some other things. I guess I'll have to re-check that code and/or add it somewhere else too. If all goes well I'll release a patch next week.

Well, I know bug fixes for BON aren't a top priority anymore, but hopefully you do find out what the problem is before releasing BON2. Regardless of what features BON2 contains, I will not touch that game if there is any evidence of saved game corruption or long-term career mode instability on there.

As mentioned on the 1.025 version changes, the bug has been fixed and I'm so sure of it that I'll fully refund anyone who finds a duplicated units bug and reports to me and he/she will still keep the license.
