Updated Wed, 14 Feb 2018 19:04:36 +0000 by Wuzzy

On this page we collect a few of the most important known bugs. Note this page is not meant to be complete and only gives a very rough overview. For a more complete list, see the list of bugs on the bug tracker.

Release 0.9.22

Drill-Strike is dropped off-center (released from plane half the drill-rocket-gap too early)

Details A regular drill strike has 6 drills, therefore 3 drills should go on each side of the target-X without hitting the X itself. However in 0.9.22 the alignment is incorrect and one drill will hit the X directly, while 3 drills will go in front of the X, 2 will go behind it

Release 0.9.21

Rubberband shows/places pixels in unexpected locations

Preconditions The Rubberband is placed/selected in strictly vertical or in rising diagonal (low left end, high right end) orientation.
Details In Rubberband's above mentioned orientations (= sprite frames) edge pixels of other orientations are visible/placed.
Workaround If you do NOT play on official server you could replace your Rubberband's spritesheet (Data/Graphics/amRubber.png) with the fixed version. If you intend to play over a private server or over local network make sure you only play together with people having the exact same fix or else the game might desync and aborts due to different game/map state information

Release 0.9.20

Game crash when roping into "Sea" world edges

Preconditions "World Edge" in active game scheme are set to "Sea"
Details When a hedgehog, using rope, leaps or swings into the World Edge, it will get teleported to under the water surface. If it then falls into death without using the rope again, the game crashes.
Workaround Try to avoid getting into the World Edge while using rope. If it happens anyway, just press the fire key immediately to reuse the rope before the hogs falls into death. This should put the game back into a state that will not crash.
