Loaded up Easy Mode, selected my portrait to customize my team. Stadium Type icons are very small... would be nice if hovering expanded to a larger image, or if you could select it and click a button to get a camera fly-by on the stadium.

Robot Face doesn't show a preview until you select a face.

Save Team seems to work well; overwrite worked fine. Maybe auto-exit the dialog after save is complete?

Week 0

I clicked next event twice, and time advanced, but no games appear to be played? After two clicks, I was offered the Cortex Tutorial.

Tutorial says middle mouse button will delete a waypoint, but it played a preview of the action instead.

Tutorial is good, but how do I exit from the Results screen? (I know it's the League text up top, but an explanation would be helpful in the tutorial).

Week 1

When reading the News Desk reports, it appears apostrophe's don't render.

Overtime help link in top right, the green underline include the space character before it.

One of the opponents runners ran through a tall block. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... 0Walls.mp4

After a long throw, I ended up with 5 dialogues on the screen at once, and they didn't fit. I was too slow on capturing the screenshot.

Faultless Strategising? Is the 'z' vs 's' a European vs American English thing?

I clicked 'Game' and watched the Match Replay. Occassionally, when showing a touchdown, it seems to want to show it from a different camera angle, but it sorta collides with something and flickers. See timestamps 0:33 and 1:28. There was some weird double-render running by the thrower at 0:15 as well. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... itches.mp4

Afterwards, the mouse cursor was missing. Hitting escape brought up the console, which brought the cursor back. Grabbed a screenshot of the debug messages at the time (GUI editor errors came from hitting F10, my fraps screenshot key). http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... Replay.png

After I left the game, my timestamp after WEEK 1 was a little weird. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... estamp.png

edit: Audio sounds much better in game than in my videos. Something is doing unkind things to the audio during recording, so don't stress that.

edit 2: The 'choose a new player' screen didn't indicate you could only choose 1 player.

Week 2

End of Week 1 message said 'Week 0 is in the books'.

Newsflash headlines have blocks instead of quote marks. http://diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP%20Be ... %20Bug.png

Another example of missing apostrophe's in News Desk statements: http://diffpair.com/Cortex/FC-SP-Beta-- ... he-Bug.png

Crash to Desktop on loading week 2 game. I don't know where the debug log is output. http://diffpair.com/Cortex/FC-SP-Beta---CTD.png

That save game appears to be corrupt now. Every time I attempt to continue, it drops me into the game and crashes to desktop.

I've noticed that my team has yet to render in that screenshot; perhaps the bug is due to my team customizations? Deleting my team customization file didn't seem to solve the issue.

Is this supposed to display the player's name? http://diffpair.com/Cortex/FC-SP-Beta-M ... h-Name.png

Perhaps I was unclear on the rules... a single loss gets me kicked out of the league? I was 3-1 at this point. http://diffpair.com/Cortex/FC-SP-Beta-O ... e-Loss.png

My opponent blocked one of my units, but two units were stunned, and my opponent recovered the ball from across the field. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... 0Block.mp4

No new bugs have cropped up, but there's not much more I'll be able to test. Even in the Easy league, I can't make it past 4 wins before I lose at least one game, which ends the game.

I have noticed that I haven't gotten any news desk reports, or introductory calls from other coaches in the last 5 or 6 games. Are those once and done?

Started playing Killer mode, since it favors my playstyle. Ran into a situation where an upgraded unit, with enhanced block range, knocked out an opposing unit due to starting position locations. The other units effectively never had a single turn; it started disabled. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... sition.mp4

And another strange situation in the same game, where nobody wants to pick up the ball. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FC%20SP% ... 20ball.mp4

Putting the rest of the text in white, since it may be a spoiler?

The next turn seems to think there was a second pass or something; it says something about pass from 'blank' to the recipient. Amusingly accurate commentary. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -48-72.bmp

Dialogue from a blank character icon on something about a Split. Only option was 'yes, I know what one is', then next dialogue said 'lots more silly questions'.


I guess this is plot?

Blank news desk object? For context, won 5 in a row, no game the following week. this is the beginning of the week after that. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -21-52.bmp

Oh, I've noticed 'No Pants' announcer occasionally saying something like "All you 'zone fans out there!" Since the game name changed, maybe that dialogue line is no longer appropriate?

I should note that I received another pre-game call from Operator 703, so I guess it's once and done in single player. Never received a call from them before, whereas I no longer receive calls from coaches I've already met.

Ok, so, maybe spoilers.

So, playing my 7th game. I receive a call asking to play. I'm already winning, and in a good position to score again. I decline twice, and the dialogue box never clears. The text in the dialogue was rather hard to read as well, and I think the word 'can't' was spelled 'cahr'.

http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -22-88.bmp
http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -24-12.bmp

Hoping exiting the game and reloading it clears the dialogue.

edit: Exiting to Main Menu and returning to the game seems to have fixed it?

Other things I noticed... win-loss rating stopped updating after my 5th game.

Finally finished a season without a loss; it appears I'm much better at the game when I can murder my opponents players. It says my record is 7-0, but I'm fairly certain I played more than 7 games. It's nice that you get to keep your championship team for use later.

Is there a better way to handle game over conditions? We get a dialogue that says 'Waiting for Action', but since the season is over, our only real option is to hit Main Menu. http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -54-20.bmp

What does the text 'Hard Ball' mean under my players stat list? http://www.diffpair.com/Cortex/FrozenEn ... -16-49.bmp
