But for some odd reason everything is working properly now.

Even Bows work

But sometimes, for no reason (possibly throwing and picking up too many times to get the right weapon out of a stack of other weapons) they'll stop doing damage.

I found a few (rather rare) cases in which where I dropped a heavily worn weapon and picked up a new one, quickly dropping THIS one again to the old one 'd make it reset it's stats again. The same works the other way around in which a new weapon 'll break after just a few hits.

It's hard to figure out which weapon is more usefull though as you only see info once you pick it up, and when you drop it again the info is actually removed. See, I tried picking up other weapons to see what weapon'd be the best choice under certain conditions, but to my surprise, attempting to pick one up again it was just named 'Sword/Club/whatever' and it didn't state a title like 'Dulled sword of toxicity' or whatever it was. It'd be more usefuill, I think, if the title given on pickup was also stored in the hud, but using shorter versions (Sword (T/D+/DULL)) or something, just saying.

Whelp... that's about all I can remember, it's been a... rather fragged up day today.


Not true, just got another idea.

What about the hands/fists 's alt attack be able to disarm certain types of enemies or atleast steal equipment? Kinda like Thief ya know? Just steal a knife and stab him down.
Alot better than starting with fists only right? XD

I'm glad things are working a bit smoother now... mind you, I'll admit that not everything is exact.
Thats a good idea with having the weapon stats come up again... I'd already thought of it, but not come up with a way of doing it... however, now that you've reminded me of the problem, I've thought up a workaround I should implement..

Or should I have the full name (or an abbreviation) in the held weapon display in the top right? (e.g. "sword of might"/ "sword of M" etc. as opposed to just "sword") I realise this goes against my idea of "you should make note of what you pick up" idea, but I get the feeling not knowing what you're holding is a bit frustrating... (mind you, you can kind of tell: by how quickly it takes a weapon to kill an ettin... A wooden spear killing an ettin in 2 shots is v. good, for instance)... Anyway, feedback appreciated.

Oh, and sorry, there is a bug i forgot about.. if you repeatedly drop a weapon and pick it up, it sometimes loses some strength.. This seems particularly true for bows... I don't know exactly why though. But that should explain at least one of your problems, and should be fixable.

Not sure about the fists altfire-disarm thing... Opinions, people?

Well... at least you're not looking at the Diabolic code... There are so many hacks and workarounds and god knows what in there that it make my head hurt, and I'm supposed to know it back to front..

Laboratory job eh? I happen to be a laboratory-sorta-chappy myself, although its more of a technicality..

Anywho, I might have time to work some more on this over the weekend. (fingers crossed)

I've released a new version because of the bugs as previously discussed. As always, the link is in the first post!

@Davidos: Thanks for the bug reports. I was unsure about the weapon strengths, but I looked over the code and found a couple of really obvious points where strength can go missing. I might not have bothered if you'd not kept the pressure, so that was really useful.

Spoiler: Changelog

It might be worth noting that, since the only extra weapon I've added is a spear, the soldier will be slightly overpowered in comparison to the other classes (mind you, you'll be pretty lucky to find an iron spear until at least the Heresiarch level). However, since the bugs were a lot worse than I thought, I think a release is appropriate :)

As ever, my apologies for the graphics, I'm still looking for any help I can get.
