Re: Ideas Management

I have just created a ticket in the Trac demo I've linked above and the only information that has to be given is a subject line. All other fields can be left at the defaults or empty, even a description is not necessary for some reason. Creating a simple ticket is easier than making a new thread in ...

Re: Bugtracker?

idea management and bugtracking should be seperate I've looked at the suggestions on the first couple of pages in the Bugs forum and a lot of them could be called bugs as well, for example: Suggestion: Allow non-admin users to play is about Frozen Synapse not supporting UAC which should be labeled ...

Re: Bugtracker?

Seconding the need for a bugtracker. I'll just quote myself from the Wishlist: Right now, bugs and feature requests are scattered across General, Technical Support and Bugs; some threads are about a single issue, some are collections of miscellaneous bugs and suggestions and there are a number of du...

Re: Ideas Management

Google Moderator seems to lack a way to comment on an item as a normal user. It may not be necessary for simple ideas, but suggestions that are more complex might need constructive criticism and collaboration from the community instead of "yes, good" or "no, bad". In that case it might be best to ju...

I think both developers and betatesters would benefit ...

Re: Secure deployment problem, Devpatch

Another thing about Secure deployment in the devpatch: The zones where the attackers start have been green for me in the last couple of Secure games I've played, but the text at the bottom says "the attackers will start in the red shaded zones."

Re: Wishlist thread

I would love it if Frozen Synapse never got a meaningless loading circle in anything and stuck to loading bars with information on what its actually trying to do so you can diagnose problems When loading pages and refreshing the sidebar most if not all of the loading time is spent waiting for the s...

Projectiles sometimes disappear when previewing a turn

As far as I can tell, this only happens with enemy projectiles. I have had enemies' grenades disappear several times, and have heard from another player via chat that one of my rockets had not appeared in his preview. I think the same thing just happened with a bullet, too: At the end of turn 1 in g...

Hostages can get stuck in later turns

It seems that the game only checks if units get stuck in the current turn, but not in later ones. This can lead to hostages getting stuck on their escape route in later turns with no warning and not being able to do anything about it without abusing a different bug.

Re: Wishlist thread

Some small UI suggestions: More feedback in the menu: Showing an animation (like http://imgur.com/PnxZP.gif ) while loading pages, refreshing the sidebar or loading a game would make the menus feel a lot more responsive. Zoom toward the mouse cursor, as already mentioned. Allow moving the camera whi...

Re: [Release] Unofficial Tray Notification Program for FS

Oh, I didn't see that you had already mentioned the built-in notifications in the first post. :shock:
Anyway, thank you for making this useful little program! I've had a lot of fun betatesting it, too! ;)

Re: [Release] Unofficial Tray Notification Program for FS

Both versions work, but the one with logging has to be in a folder that is not protected by UAC. To test, I put it somewhere in C:\Program Files\ and it crashed like before with "System.UnauthorizedAccess", while the log-less version ran fine from everywhere I tried it. I've just noticed that a gene...

That map is definitely bugged, there's already a thread about the same thing in the Bugs forum.

Re: [Release] Unofficial Tray Notification Program for FS

The latest version works perfectly with admin privileges, as a normal user it crashes like before. Also, it took me a while to find the log file, I only found the string "C:\log.txt" in process explorer by accident. :) edit: Just found out about the Windows Reliability Monitor, here are the problem ...

Re: [Release] Unofficial Tray Notification Program for FS

I can't get this to run at all, it crashes right after doubleclicking the exe with a "Frozen Synapse Tray Notification has stopped working" dialog. :? I'm on Win7 x64, and I have tried using the older build, running it as administrator, setting compatibility mode for Vista and XP, but nothing helped...
