Riot Shields without DLC

Postby BigJMoney » Thu Jun 14, 2012 4:09 am

I don't know why my first post isn't appearing so I'll try once more.

When I do a skirmish setup and give one team grenade units, that team also ends up getting the same number of riot shield units for free. I do not own the DLC.

I confirm the problem:

    1) In skirmish generator, Shield units parameter is not available.
    2) Whatever setup you select, you end up with one Shield unit in the game even if you don't want it, which is very annoying.

Do you intend to correct the problem ?
It is currently impossible to play with grenade unit in skirmish generator.

Did you abandon the game ?
If you do so, please opensource the server so that we can play in LAN.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention; apologies for being slow to fix this.

We've made a long-term public commitment to always keep servers up for our games: we're extremely against the deactivation of game servers. This has been reiterated many times in the past but I'm happy to do so again here.

This will be fixed and patched eventually - I'm sorry that we can't get to it immediately but we will do so ASAP.

Does this bug occur if you've bought the Red DLC?
Or does a setting appear for the number of shield carriers in the offline skirmish generator?

Ah, then I can now decide if I actually want the Red DLC at all, or just to patch that annoying bug... or just put up with it. Hmm.

I've just tried starting up FS for the first time in ages. Logged in in the vague hope that this bug might have been fixed and it doesn't seem to have been.

Is anything happening in FS land...?

Any hope to see this bug corrected one day ? :cry:

We still cannot use the grenade unit in Skirmish.

Oh... Frozen Synapse Prime is out.

...still no hope to see the bug corrected in the original Frozen Synapse ? We still can't use the grenade unit.

Word is that Prime only has a nicer façade, the bugs remain. I haven't tried it though.

I found the interface of FS Prime more difficult to get on with.
But still *very* disappointed about the lack of any obvious fixes for FS. It's fine that there are no new features, but obvious bugs should be remedied.

One would hope so...

Frankly as far as the planning goes, the minimalistic approach of original FS is the best option. I wouldn't mind seeing the resolution (the actual one, not the planning replays) with a nicer interface.
