Bug in Random Hits

Post by iperich » Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:28 am

Hi, I found what seems to be a bug in Random Hits. It's about the messages of revenge after I killed the target.

I have Oolite 1.77 in a Windows 8 system, with Random Hits 1.4.18

It happened to me twice, actually the only two times somebody wants to kill me for revenge. Is only in the "warning" message. When the guys attack, the name is ok.

PD: can I upload an image to the forum without upload it to some server/ link it?

No - an image has to be hosted elsewhere and linked.

Looks like a bug reported here. It's fixed in RH 1.5.3. You can fix it yourself for an older version by editing the descriptions.plist file. Find the line reported in the bug report and add brackets around misbehaving text. If you edit the file, don't use notepad, it breaks the file.

IIRC one should be careful with Wordpad too. It reads the file correctly, but silently converts it back to windows' line delimiters format upon save. It happened to me on XP system though.
FYI OP, the files are in mac/linux format in which newlines are marked with a single (invisible character), when Windows/DOS use two.

If you want to test an editor, do your modification on a copy of the file (or just make sure to backup the original file) with it, then open it again with notepad. If Notepad doesn't show linebreaks that's ok, otherwise it means it has been converted to the windows format.

I understand notepad++ is very good, so that might be worth getting. I actually use gedit, but many here use notepad++

Likewise.. but if you'd like to try it out, Notepad++ runs quite well atop WINE.
