Everyone is encouraged to install the beta, and help test the next version of Myth II. We need your help to find any bugs, so that we can fix them before the final version.

h) Disabled tilde/deselect interaction with inventory and made the inventory menu hide immediately after an item is chosen.

What is the reason for this change? Using the tilde to select inventory 0 was one of the best UI changes in 1.8. I don't want to have to reach all the way across my keyboard to hit 0, especially since inventory 0 is going to be the most frequently selected inventory.

Please revert this change or make it optional.

People complained back when 1.8 was released that they didn't like the change. Instead of adding an option I thought I'd just revert it and see if anyone cared - which it seems that you do :wink:. We can make it optional for the final.

Awesome work guys! Let's organize a night to do some further testing on this client. In particular to try and get some 1.8.1 "gameplay" testing just to ensure there aren't bugs.

Can't connect to GoS. Locks up in the 'connecting' dialog. Have to force quit.

os:
OSX 10.5.8
cpu:
2.1Ghz PPC
ram:
1GB RAM
video:
ATY,RV380
vram:
128MB

In the interim, have played 20 or 30 coops. Mostly seems pretty solid. However, see this

attached film. Think that qualifies as a bug? Never seen anything like it.

The warrs clumped at the bridge would not respond to any commands.

Also, filed a bug ages ago w/ 1.8 when the extended camera zoom was added. The solution was to disallow zoom on my machine. That was unnecessary and I re-enabled it using a powerusers setting. Specifically,

[Renderer.OpenGL]
UseCMapTiles=True
UseShaders=True

The original bug was that the sprites did not render, only their shadows. I haven't seen it since and still don't know the original cause.

Thanks always for keeping my favorite game of all time alive into another decade.

--- edit ---

Upon reviewing the film, I have to add on note. The film was made using the TFL Coops Plug made by Renwood and OogaBooga. I'm no longer aware of its location online, so here is a description.

The scenario was Siege of Madrigal.

Upon crossing the bridge, clumped warriors fought and killed a clump of thrall right at the foot of the bridge on the town side. From some unknown cause, 4 of the surviving warrior became stuck on the mesh, rapidly fluctuating their animation but remaining in place. They do not respond to any commands. This might be an edge case bug, which would make it worthwhile to track down the plug. I see from the readme that some of the new features are associated w/ bug regarding the interaction of objects on the mesh. The falling bits of the dead thrall may have been involved here.

Thanks for the bug report film! I don't think we changed anything related to monster movement in 1.8.1, so I suspect it's an old bug, but will take a look.

EDIT: Looks like it is actually caused by 1.8.1, by the fix for the "teleporting bottle/pus" bug. We'll fix it for the final or for beta 2 if we have one. The issue is some projectiles that would have previously dropped to ground level remained in air and stuck between the two warriors, causing collisions and the warriors unable to move. :|

Glad to help.

Since the connection to GoS attempt locks up and I have to force quit, I can't think of any further useful information other than to be clear that I have no problem connecting w/ 1.8 and can also host. If there is anything further, PM or post here.

Thanks. Can you post what your myth_log.txt says when you try to connect to GoS?

Also, when this happens, can you open Activity Monitor, find "Myth II" and click "Sample Process" (or "Inspect" -> "Sample Process") and attach the output of that as a file here? That would help us understand what's going on. Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. Will be fixed for next build we post.

Hi Project Magma, :mrgreen:

I would suggest the following script :

In Loathing "edit map action" (type sound) add a new script named "dialog" where we could write the text of dialogues of the characters without need to make a "string list"

By the way, if there are more instances of the "units getting stuck" bug that happens, please submit your films. It's a tricky issue and I'd like to make sure our fix for it completely addresses it.

    a sample at the main screen before trying to connect.
    a sample after pressing connect from the Multiplayer Game screen.

The connect dialog is displayed. The cancel button does not respond to a rollover nor a click.

Happy Hunting.

--edit--

I only let this run 1 minute initially. While making these samples I let the connect run longer. It still fails, but it displays a dialog saying that there are no rooms available.

Pay attention to the sound after the wight explodes. Something's wrong with it. I could try and guess, but you're just going to have to listen to it anyway. From about 25:30 on.
