Known Bugs (that I'm fixing now)

Postby cliffski » Thu Jul 13, 2006 9:27 pm

Ok, a few small bugs slipped the net. The one I have just had reported and am fixing now is for you getting the previous games reminders for evening classes if you start a game, then start another game.

Another is related to a crash bug when starting a second game (without restarting the whole program).

Once I've fixed these I'll put together a patch for the full version, and update the demo.

Two known bugs:

a) a save game crash, that I'm looking at today.

b) a clash with certain nvdia drivers seemingly causing random crashes. Deselecting the music checkbox in the games options menu should fix this while we look for a more established fix.

Ok identified one save game bug, and working on a patch now.
heres the workaround:
Never save the game immediately after starting a new job. leave it at least 1 full day. You need at least 1 days work history or when the games loaded it in, it thinks theres a bug (there isnt really, 0 is valid, but it doesnt realise).
Patch for it coming soon.

theres a save game crash bug concerning relationships. Ive found it, and know how to fix it, but save games that exhibit it are unsalvageable I'm afraid ;(
should be fixed today though.
