Parcel Delivery Problem

Post by gizmo »

Not sure if this is a trunk nightly problem or not ...

There's a small problem with parcel deliveries:
When there's only one contract available the game omits the parcel list (where the fee is visible) and instead displays the chart (no fee visible).

OOlite version: latest trunk nightly (8e64fbb)

Am I missing something? This is a shot of a lone parcel contract:

Hmm... my hud disappears when I go to that page. That is your problem, methinks - but why, I know not!

Is this OXP related? Try without BGS or the HUD you are using just in case. Also, why is there a 'Press Space Commander' at the bottom of the screen?

This is HUD related, which should hide itself using player.ship.hudHidden=true; in this screen to bring down the menu to the bottom, but must show the HUD again at launch and when buying missiles.
The question is the core should force the hudHidden setting in this screen or leave the fix to the oxps?

I'm not sure it is.
When I looked at this, weird stuff happened. My starting point was a virgin Cobby 3 with Combat HUD and (my adapted version of) BGS. I also use Better Screens as I don't like the BGS screens.
When I went to the Parcels screen, the HUD stayed in place and a BGS screen appeared.
I removed the HUD OXZ and tried again. The (now default) HUD stayed in place and the BGS screen was used. I think the problem most likely lies with BGS - it was the only common factor, and with either HUD was applying a BGS screen where (to my mind with Better Screens installed) it shouldn't.

Edited to add:-
OK, now I'm really confused. Disabling BGS didn't make any difference either, so it is probably not the cause. I'm still seeing the HUD (either one) on Parcels which I gather is not right.

The core does set hudHidden for that screen, and has always done so. The only responsibility of OXPs is not to put it back again (the core will also do that).

cim, you might have missed my edit above. I am getting the default HUD (and/or OXP HUD) on F4 parcels.

With no OXPs: no problem here
With BGS + CCL: still no problem

No OXPs.
HUD removed
BGS removed
Better screens removed
Un-modified core ship
I go to F4, select parcels and the (default of course) HUD remains on screen. Might it be a platform issue - I'm on Linux

Did you select a contract? The hud only disappears on that screen.
It all works fine here with the latest BGS, anyway.

Ah, I see. <Smivs hasn't done parcels yet so didn't know how this works> Yes, you're right, the HUD does disappear when a contract is selected.
(Mind you I'm still getting the BGS screen, and annoying noises as well! Grrrrrrr. Looks like Better Screens needs an update.)
