Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
Right now im trying to do a quest for the tentakulon faction that gives me a regenerative shield device and wants me to fly through 20 ion storms with it. Except that it does not work, i've flewn through many many ion storms but the game does not register my work.

Another thing with that quest: Everytime you accept it, you get aforementioned device as a gift. So what do we do?
1. Accept the quest.
2. Sell the device you just got.
3. Abandon the quest.
4. Take the quest again.
5. Get the device again (for free).
6. Sell it again.
7. Rince and repeat. Basically infinite credits. :down:

Bug Reports
Warped to sector 2, and...


P.S. Maybe a bug report sticky?

Going into caves respawns quest items on planet surface
Like the title says: If you have to collect 25 ressource samples b.e. and collect all of them that are available on a planets surface, then enter a cave on said planet and leave, there will be new ressource samples on the planet. Again, easily exploitable.

Something that could be a bug but im not sure:
Regarding gruff quests: The quests keep repeating (slay the phoenix, shoot the mercs etc.) but i still haven't got the achievement for doing all the gruff quests unlocked. I even unlocked a new ship so i think i've done everything those gruff have to offer.

I think ill stop playing for now until some of the stuff is sorted out. We need a "Bug Report Sticky".

Approaching Infinity Crashes Regularly on Mac
2 Attachment(s)
Loved the demo and bought the game to play on my Mac. Demo worked fine but the production game crashes to desktop regularly. I think my longest uninterrupted duration of play was about 20 minutes.

Here is a screen shot of the error after it crashes. I've also attached a copy of the detailed text from the dump that is shown in the screen shot.

The game is great (for the little I've been able to play it). Hope you can find a solution because right now, I'm stuck with a game that doesn't work.

Many thanks!

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
OK, first:
Hi everyone, I am finally back from my pre-holiday travels
I am already working on the various issues that have been reported throughout the forum.
We knew that new issues would arise once we had a larger player base.

About the tentaculon quest:
abandoning a quest with a race does reduce your rep with that race, but perhaps it's not enough to deter players. Will investigate. Will also reduce the device's price, since it's very quest-specific and exploitable.

About Asteroid Sector:
I can't believe that is still happening. I apologize.
I will make yet another fix for that.

About the Mac Crash:
thanks a lot for the detailed information.
from the screenshot, it appears to have something to do with the music.
Which is good, because it's one of the few systems that are different between the demo and the release version. So, in the short term,
please try deactivating music as soon as you start, and try again.
Go into main option menu, and reduce volume to zero, or click the music button in-game, until music volume is 0.

will fix all,

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
Thanks for the reply Ibol. I don't think theres any reason to be sorry. The game is great and stuff like this is bound to happen after a game releases. Kudos to you for staying in touch and merry christmas to everyone!

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
Looking more deeply into the tentaculon quest, I've confirmed a bug: it gives you the wrong device! (now do you think I should be sorry?!)

Here is a daily code for today (12/22) that will give you the right device,
allowing you to complete the quest:
and here's one for tomorrow, just in case you used one today:

+1 on the Merry Christmas,

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
Thanks for the code, tried it, installed the new device and sucked up many ion storms. I think it still doesnt work. Quest is in my log but is not getting updated. :D

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
Thanks so much for looking at the Mac issue. Tried turning game sound down/off but still have the crashes. Thanks again for the great customer support and have a great holiday!

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.
@Fennrick, it is entirely possible that that quest does not actually show a count of successes, so please keep at it & check back with the embassy. [edit] : I can verify, it does not show successes, but it is entirely complete-able.
I can also verify that a future tentac quest suffers from the same 'gives you the wrong device' error. (I re-arranged devices to alphabetical order, and didn't catch all the changes apparently)

@vondee, I said music & you said sound... just to be clear, I mean music. However, I will continue to look into it. I do have notes from a quite a few mac users, and have not had a similar problem.
[edit]: I read your future response and that sucks. :/
