    Hey guys,

    For anyone that missed it today I streamed fixing the bug that Buuz found regarding damage and protections. You can re-watch my VOD if you wanna check it out. We managed to figure out the bug in about 1.5 hours and fixed it shortly afterwards. Please make some suggestions of what other bugs you would like me to look at on stream and we can do a vote then on the order of how I will look at them. Make sure to follow me on twitch



    Shout out to @Buuzz for all the help in the stream chat to replicate the issue.

    It took you one and half hour to fix a bug, which is very impressive. However, I do believe the mount stamina bug has been in the game for almost two years right?

    At my calculation, there is 17520 hours in two years. Which means on average you could have fixed this bug a total of 11680 times. Work harder! Slackers!!

    Just joking, good work.

    Auto Parry doesn't work properly anymore.




    "Retard" Whirlwind is also a big issue as well.

    Auto parry not working is like game breaking. Can change a fight from a win to a loss due to not parrying.

    All my losses are due to not being able to parry.

    Can you take a look at the combat revert bug? Was suppose to be reverted but wasn’t.

    next look into the videos squanto and co made about city protections vs outside of city protections dmg being fucked, although maybe it could be related to this due to Buzz's findings being protection based and Squantos videos being protections changing via citys buffs plz test

    Mount stamina bug
    (getting off of your mount, turning off autosprint, getting back on and going forward)
    This lets your mount regain stamina at the rate that it would regain if it were sitting still while still allowing you to ride at normal (non-sprinting) speed.

    - Easy band-aid fix for this would be to add code to check and see if player is sprinting when getting onto a mount. If the player is sprinting, do nothing. If the player is not sprinting when they get onto the mount, toggle sprint on and then toggle it off. Can't think of any issues that could arise with this change.

    Bugged whirlwinds
    (when you press your whirlwind key and your character spins with the sword vertical and the whirlwind uses the cooldown but does not do damage (sometimes it does damage, but just has a bugged animation))

    - No idea what causes this, if I had to guess it has something to do with the paperdoll lock timer being lowered or "removed"

    Food Bug
    (eating food then dying and respawning or having someone kill and rez you will keep the food buff on permanently until you either 1) recall or use billboard or 2) when the food runs out and you hit a loadscreen.)
    -
    This bug arose whenever you guys set it so that food persists through deaths, rather than being a buff and being removed when you die.

    What about performance issues like the gui eating up sometimes 50fps at sieges? Can we get the gui running in it's own thread? I know it's a much longer fix but it would be nice to have at least or even over 60fps at a siege.

    Also at some point you guys fixed load lag by accident. Now it's back. Would be nice to get it fixed again.

    • Buy orders for champion weapons being impossible to fill
    • Food bug
    • Not sure if it's a bug but a HUGE quality of life fix would be to make your buy and sell order lists sort alphabetically

    Auto parry always worked like that, otherwise my script wouldn't have existed since the day they implemented it.

    Whirlwind needs to be fixed on some real shit though, it's infuriating.

    I think what the real solution to being able to fix a lot of the client woes is in their messaging system and creating true multi-threaded asynchronous action/command pool. and damn looking at that code, it needs some much needed refactoring lol. design patterns have come so far since the days of this implementation.

    multi-threaded message pool would significantly improve client and siege performance especially... plus, it would get rid of that little hitch of fps lag when shooting a bow.

    Please let us know when the fix gets in the game neil. Can't wait to test and see what broken ass piece of the game that broken code was somehow making work.

    First off, well done so far Neil. Keep up the good work. As far as bugs...

    Battlespike issues (no tooltip, apparently selling them on the market can cause crashes?)
    Dropping food on the ground causes it to bug out (you get eat failed)
    Guard towers in player cities hitting people forever (even after they are destroyed sometimes)
    And of course, what you had already started on, fixing Uqtu's Portal Chamber lol. There are some minor ones that I know of (rock at Frost Coast where you can walk into the geometry, floating guard tower at Ichtan, a spot at one of the elf cities where you can walk into the water and then swim up into the air)
