Bug report: Running 220.127.116.11
Hiring leaders after you've rejected them
If I go to the Leaders screen to hire them some turns later when I get the BC for it, when I press their portrait the game doesn't show the hire screen and freezes. Music keeps playing but I have to restart dosbox. Tested the same save without 18.104.22.168 and I am able to successfully hire the leader. Sorry if this was reported before but I'm at work and wanted to write this quick. Thanks
Thanks for report!
It'd be very helpful if you can share that save.
Btw what do you mean by ".3" in version number "22.214.171.124"?
Terribly sorry for the late reply. I kept wanting to do this but I was just swamped with real life and never got around to playing. And yes, what I meant by ".3" was in fact that the "-1.3" in the archive name that got stuck in my head as "...11.3" as if it was the third release of 1.50.11, very sorry for the confusion.
Unfortunately the original two saves (two different games) where I had this issue were overridden as I didn't have the presence of mind to keep them, but I have been able to replicate this bug almost every time in a new game, so here's another save with it. Trying to hire Crasus from the leader screen freezes the game, same thing happens to Gizmo in the ship officers tab. https://drive.google.com/open?id=10-tu7teq83YXd004Bue_BxPKJcpvBLI3
Some additional background, I do use a non-standard DOSBox, which is to say the latest DOSBox ECE (found here https://blog.yesterplay80.net/dosbox-ece-en
/) which is simply a version with some extra things on top of the original DOSBox' latest SVN release from sourceforge. I find it very stable and faster what with literally years of bugfixing differences between 0.74 and this one. I also launch all my DOS games through a modified D-Fend Reloaded front-end. I mention this because while I don't believe it matters, who knows. However, every time I launch GOG's 1.4 Moo2 (with the same settings and DOSBox I just mentioned) and load the save file, I can recruit both ship officers just fine.
Lastly, pardon my ignorance but, how do you guy(s?) (the team behind the upatch and ICE) call yourselves? I'd love to add it to my Developer/Publisher description lines in D-fend.
