Games Status doesn't display all tasks correctly.

Post by Jartol » Wed Apr 06, 2011 3:36 am

Logged on earlier today and used Games - Game Status to check to see what games were going on. Game Status did not display "#10 Hammers Slammers[MRBC] is attempting a Baptism of Fire on Terra Firma (Units: 2 Meks / BV: 2096). lorddrakewater[CC] is defending (Units: 4 Meks / BV: 4331)" correctly. Talked to Hammers Slammers, and he told me that his army was 2 mechs and 2 vees.

The task ended shortly after I used Game Status, so maybe that has something to do with it. Or not, I don't know.

If you've come across it before, why did you not report it as a bug? I can't fix what I don't see.

Oo boy. I'm going to need people to keep an eye on this one. If it happens, please try to determine if the task was ending while you got the description. I can't see any way in code this should be happening...

pretty sure this only happens if a player requests game status the moment a game is reported.
When the injustice is great enough, Justice will lend me the strength needed to correct it.
None may stand against it.
It will shatter every barrier, sunder any shield, tear through any enchantment and lend its servant the power to pass sentence.
Know this: there is nothing on all the Planes that can stay the hand of justice when it is brought against them.
It may unmake armies. It may sunder the thrones of gods.
Know that for ALL who betray Justice, I am their fate... and fate carries an Executioner's Axe.
