    Bugs due to the new patch

    Post by terryterry on Sat Oct 10, 2015 4:14 am

    The new patch from battlenet REALLY screwed things up. A LOT of arcade games got messed up. As far as I know, there are 3 bugs with the Thing now (but I don't know if you can fix them, or it's up to battlenet to handle it).

    1. Thing dies as soon as the evac ship arrives. The only way to win is to kill all the marines.
    2. Clicking on the mini-map rotates the camera angle/view. This happens about 50% of the time.
    3. Soon after the game starts, for a few people starcraft crashes completely and they get a window that pops up that says: unexpected error. And they have to restart starcraft (although they are still connected to battlenet).

    Anyway, as I mentioned in another post, thanks to the release of Whispers of Oblivion, the Thing (and starcraft in general) is a poppin' again. Lots of new players, but at least (from what I can tell from the chats), they are having fun and filling up the lobbies again.

    Battle.net updates will most likely have to be resolved by blizzard when it comes to bugs. I'm sure Vic will take a look at it. We're currently discussing getting this update out finally. Vic completed some Data work and I did some terraining, but we did it on different files which means we A) Wait for Vic to transfer his data over to my file or B) Wait for 10 years for me to redo all the pathing work I've ever done.

    Pst* I'm taking the former.

    The way the arcade is laid out, the trolls can no longer destroy this game or the enthusiasm anyone shares for it. Just impossible because of the flood effect. I expect, following some bug patches, this to be a good new start for The Thing.

    Ps. Development, if I can get Vic to do it, should continue in giving The Thing more information. For example, The Thing should be able to see, similar to the admin panel, who is alive and who is dead etc. Makes it easier to understand the position you're in within the game and to see who you can deceive etc. I don't know about you, but I sure as hell can't stand remembering who I killed and didn't.

    1. Just had a game where this didn't happen?

    2. Just tested it and I saw the issue. I'll work on it.

    3. This may be a Blizzard issue.

    Hmmm. Maybe #1 was just something that pops up every now and then, because it happened 1 game for me, and then some of the other regulars also told me about it on a different day. Guess we'll just have to monitor.

    Thanks for working on #2. Guess it's not a big issue since we can just click on the normal map heheheh.

    yeah #3 is a BIG issue for me since I wanna play! Close to my 2000th game!!!....although I switched computers once and hd my stats reset during that big crash during the Christmas break of 2013. Maybe it's closer to 2500 or 3000.

    Anyway, thanks for your continued support. I'll post if there are any more bugs popping up.

    If your camera goes off auto follow because of clicking on the minimap, all you have to is manually center your view on your marine then press SHIFT + CTRL + F and the camera will auto follow your marine again.
