Hi all,

after I had the game freeze on me, I had to restart the computer as it was unresponsive to the keyboard and mouse. After the restart I checked my latest log to see if there was any ewason there for the freeze but instead I found the following.

During the battle I attacked a krait that had launched from a pirate cove and whilst I was targetting and firing at it, a second krait was launched from the pirate cove, but it was nowhere near the krait that I was targetting. Yet according to the above, I attacked both ships simultaneously.

The same happened when I killed the krait I actually had targetted when I seem to have attacked the pirate cove and second krait at the same time when both were quite far away from one another.

I remember that in the recent past, after targetting an offender and giving it a warning shot and changing my target to a proper pirate (rather than a trader with a bad rep) then when I fire on the pirate, the first offender keeps screaming its head off that he's under attack yet no shots even came close to it.

This does suggest to me that the game does not properly break the contact after retargetting another ship/station/whatever. Is this normal?

I don't know, A_C, I thought of starting a strict game to counter any OXP effects but the events that are listed in the log are the result of an OXP that I installed and I checked the previous log as well.

In it I found no secondary attacks and as I recall I didn't come across a pirate cove or if I did I didn't spend any time lingering near a Rock Hermit to find out of it would start spewing out pirates.

With that in mind I re-checked the latest log and I found that before I encountered an active Pirate Cove battles were as they should be, i.e. you target one enemy and it's the only one you attack and do damage to. Only after reaching an active Pirate Cove and it's pirates did I find the double attacks of which one is an actual attack with energy loss for the opponent.

So I am going to remove the Pirate Cove OXP and see if I can spot the same issue when battling multiple enemies, especially with targetting one enemy then switching to another without actually attacking the first one. If I can't find any issue in a week's time, i will re-install the pirate cove oxp and see if I can create the same issue again.

Unless you know of a shortcut that I can use?

Update: Thinking a bit more about it, it would be better to turn it around, i.e. keep the OXP and try to see if I can trigger the same issue again. If I can then I would know what to do to try it out after removing the OXP (or other OXP's if the Pirate Cove is cleared).

Debug Console. To use:
1. Download the Developer Release patch utility that changes a standard game installation to a Developer (also known as Test Release) one. Run it and point it to your standard installation.
2. Download the Debug Console, which is the debugging tool we use for performing generic god stuff in the game.
3. Run the debug console, then run Oolite. As soon as the game starts, the console should report that it is connected to it.
4. Now you can use the cosole command line to spawn whatever it is you want to test. The standard way to spawn stuff is:
Code:
:spawn <roleOfEntityYouWantToSpawn>
e.g. to spawn a pirate you execute :spawn pirate. If you want a specific ship, you can use its shipdata.plist key enclosed in square brackets e.g. :spawn [cobra3-trader]. Note the colon as the first character of the command, in this case it is required.
With the above you can spawn pirate coves, pirates, traders and whatever else you may want to in order to do a test. This way you reduce the 'good luck' factor a lot and hopefully you will be able to perform your tests much faster than having to wait for the game to generate the ideal conditions for you.

What, A_C?

Are you trying to induce me to perform ....... :shock: Dark Arts :shock: ????

It's going to be a first step which, no doubt, will lure me in, deeper and deeper, until sunlight is no longer wanted or even tolerated.

Three Fingers for the Trader-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Planet-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Space-Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Pirate on his dark throne.
One Finger to rule them all. One Finger to find them,
One Finger to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

Ohhhh, what power I can wield with my finger. The ULTIMATE power to call any vessel, station to appear at my command!

Ok, I'm sold.

Down :wink: loading!
