Brand Build Testing

The tower awaits!

Brand Build Testing

Postby Ferret » Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:15 pm

WARNING! READ THE BELOW FIRST!

The versions of Demon linked below are test builds. They may have ridiculously horrifying bugs of any and all kinds, including crashes, save file loss, unplayable or unwinnable content, and many other lesser issues.

If you find any issues in these test builds please post them in this thread, not the Bug Reports forum.

Though I will endeavor to fix critical/blocking bugs as quickly as possible, my work schedule remains an issue. I am typically only available limited times on weekdays, and a little more often on weekends, so even nasty bugs may go without new builds for several hours, or even a few days.

Finally, please remember it is extremely likely scores and ghosts will be wiped not only after testing is complete, but even between individual test builds if need be.

Thank you for helping test the Brand build. It's been a long time coming, and I hope it proves worth the wait! Good luck in the Tower!

WARNING! READ THE ABOVE FIRST!

Latest Test Build: 3/13/2019 9:45pm CDT

Procedures

I will make new builds whenever I have critical bug fixes to deliver, or a large number of non-critical bug fixes. Known and in-progress bugs collected from this thread will be listed below. If there are no bugs from this thread to work on, I will work on the many bugs I agreed to fix "in the Matter build" over the past several months: when that happens, you will see bug fixes appear on the list that aren't from this thread.

Bugs Fixed In Next Build:
* Changing Vitality during level up should no longer change Max HP until you confirm. (This is already true, just forgot to put in notes.)
* Make Haunt/Harass/Possess use Charge cooldown, not Dark.
* Regen shouldn't usually win over removing Charm and Harden, in terms of AI evaluations.
* Adjust Apply Brand costs upwards.
* Find a way to prevent needing to go to Brand inventory after each Brand pickup to see what it was.

Open Critical Bugs (highest priority, new build any time this list is cleared out):
(none at this time)

Open Non-Critical Bugs (will be fixed, but do not rate immediate builds):
* Still some Brand modifiers not yet implemented; more will be added as testing proceeds.
* Still need to add Brand-related relic upgrades; will be added as testing proceeds.
* Still need to add a way to view older message log messages.
* Brands that toggle outside of combat and affect MaxHP/MaxSP can cause looping resting behaviors.
* Under some circumstances, all Brands appear at the center of the world.
* Clarify what is being shown when "previewing" changing a Brand on a character.
* AI needs to better account for Stamina-related Brand requirements.
* AI needs to better account for Last Element Used Brand requirements.
* SP display looks a little off is MaxSP is less than 100.
* Need to prevent Last Used Element and Max SP Increase from showing up on Brands together.
* Cunning bonus Brands are still sometimes assigned to demons that don't use Cunning.
* Magic bonus Brands are still sometimes assigned to demons that don't use Magic.
* Corpse encounters do not use Brands yet.
* Focus Fire shouldn't allow pacifists to attack other targets.
* Codex should not show blanks.
* Factor overkill out of AI damage evaluations.
* Need an Auto-Consume, or Consume prompt, when deleting/fusing demons.
* Tiny XP gains sometimes mean no MaxHP damage recovery.
* Fix Pariah+Blind bug.
* Fix Blind player + Protect captureables.
* If tooltip switched positions in the last second, don't let it switch again.
* +SP cost Brands shouldn't affect reactives/auras, or 0 SP cost abilities like Meditate. (May be time to just get rid of +Flat SP Cost)
* Mirror chime wraiths possibly spawning with odd Brands (maybe using summoner code?)

Previously Fixed Bugs:
* Fusion previews caused permanent changes in character Vitality. Ew.
* Relic Wraiths with Brands sometimes cause crashes when spawned.
* SP Tax brand modifiers should not apply to Basic Move, Basic Pass (causes crashes!)
* Using special movement to pickup a Currency item could cause an infinite pick-up loop.
* If a character with very low MaxHP loses Vitality due to a Brand, their MaxHP may reach 0 causing a crash/hang.
* Make sure Fusion and Soul Armor can't reduce MaxHP below 0.
* Force tooltips to the right-side if there is a confirmation waiting for the player to respond.

Hooray, instant bug reports, your favorite!
Picking up Sh-Fre brands seems to freeze the game reliably.
And the Mi-Rel brand too, at least when rebooting the same save file

EDIT EDIT
Actually seems to be happening about the same time no matter what I do with this save file, might be related to some demon offscreen

MOAR EDIT
Sent the save file(I think)

SO I"M GONNA KEEP THESE EDITS UP UNTIL I HAVE A NEW THING TO SAY
A new save file seems fine so far

Eeek! Send me a save folder, if you would. :D

EDIT: Got the save file, having a lookiesee now. I'm actually oddly relieved it probably *isn't* related to picking up random Brands. :P

EDIT 2: Bloody hell, it even locked up the editor hard, no error output. What the heck?

EDIT 3: Found where it's stuck.. but I do not yet know why it is stuck there.

It varies based on OS, but here you go SummerSnowman: https://docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReferenc ... aPath.html

Once you find it, send it to ferretdev.org at gmail.com :) Thanks!

Not to interrupt but here's a weird one :D
The gandayah is perpetually healing a perfectly healthy goblin out of combat
save file sent

Also not a bug but I think Dr. West can keep his zombies this run, jinkies

I think I managed to send the save folder. Very unsure, though. It wasn't in the directory from the Unity link you sent me, but near the records folder instead.

So... funny thing...

There are brands that give a flat SP increase to *all* abilities.

And I do mean *ALL* abilities.

Like... basic movement and basic... passing...

Wiz, your save file is locking up because a Gandayah on the level literally ran out of SP to move or even just pass its turn. :) The AI has no concept of how to handle a character with literally no valid moves because Basic Pass is supposed to always be valid. :P

Fixing now, then I'll look into the other one. :)

Happily, once this is fixed, it should be retroactive, so your save files will work fine.

Hmm... nothing in my e-mail box yet Summer, but I'll check again after I add the fix for the SP tax brands :P
