Bug in Domain wars Demo?
 
In Domain Wars, if you enter the assign troops to province screen, and enter 0 troops and hit the Assignment Orders complete, you will get an Runtime Error 5 Invalid Procedure of Call.

Not really a bug, if you leave a troop square blank when assigning troops, it assumes 0. So you don't need to enter 0 in a troop type square.

First:
I want to say congrats to you Derek. I have seen some of your Posts in

comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.*

Glad to see you have found a new place for your games. I look forward to downloading them sometime soon and trying them out.

Second:
How is this not a bug, when it's causing a game crash? Are you planning on releasing patches to fix any major bugs people find?

Thanks DarkStar! I appreciate it.

Second:
It's not really a bug because it's quite easily avoidable within the actual way the interface is supposed to function. In the example he gave, to assign no troops of a certain type to a domain in Domain Wars, just leave the square blank (which is the default). Blank square equals zero. Pretty easy, I think. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon7.gif Though the docs don't make that totally clear, I admit.

In other words, it's not an unexpected bug that happens during the normal functioning of the game. It's an oversight that could be easily fixed, if need be.

And yes, if game-affecting bugs are found, I will absolutely fix them.
