    Hi all, in an effort to help us keep on top of bugs/ issues we find in House of Tail- we’re going to try and use this post for a repository of what people have found and what we have fixed. If you find something please give us as much info as you can such as-

    Browser or Download version of HOT
    Your operating system
    What Browser you were using (for browser versions)
    What you were doing when things went wonky

    Thanks (prepares for the deluge)

    I do have one question, do you know how much the download version will cost? Also, what does it include that the free online one doesn’t? Like the full list of differences?

    #1821

    Just a note – feel free to start your own topics about House of Tail if you like, even ones about bugs/issues. This is more to get the ball rolling.

    Download version costs $9.95, but will cost more once we add more download-only features and the game itself has more to it.

    We’ll post a page explaining the differences and such. Tentatively, we’d like to add the option of loading your own graphics to make your own characters. We’ve tested this, but need to test a bit more to confirm we can deliver before making a hard promise.

    In general, we’re very concerned about file size, so the download version will *likely* have more graphics and sound, more space for saving things, like an achievements feature.

    I also have no sound in my downloaded version as well.

    Having a bit of trouble with my save file. I’m playing online, firefox 21.0, on windows 7 home premium.
    Started game on Steady mode, chose murguy as starter. Saved and quit before doing anything else. Loaded up save file, have victoria as my starter now, seems to be no other difference. Save, quit, reload, now I’ve got no characters: http://s1290.photobucket.com/user/hey_its_smoxy/media/hot_debug/01_zps006c3c99.png.html
    No limit on days like this? Got to 100 days: http://s1290.photobucket.com/user/hey_its_smoxy/media/hot_debug/02_zpsf75b6c5b.png.html
    Game crashes (specificially, it stops responding and I have to refresh the page) when I try to look at the goal.
    Tried saving and reloading my 100 day save, didn’t work; had days and cash reset to zero like that first screenshot. Actually, there was a crash/refresh via goals button between the saving and reloading of that save. And that seems to make the difference. Using this no characters file, it seems to reset the day to the first day regardless of when I save or how I go about loading. If I do not refresh the page (crash or no crash), it remembers how much money I had in my save.

    Trying to recreate incident…I’m still having the switch of starting character happen as described, but the characters disappearing is just happening when I refresh the page after saving.
    Same happens on hard mode, except no character switching. Also not getting save file to register any progress I’m making, just getting sent back to the start of the game when I load. Checking that with normal mode..same there. Huh. Same stuff on easy mode.

    tldr: Saves aren’t saving anything for me other than what mode I’m on.

    All these delicious bugs! I shall get to work…

    – Fixed a bug when you click item twice with no items, web updated, download not updated yet. It might be responsible for some odd behavior since the download version will keep running whereas web will stall.

    The download version will voice its errors much better than the web one, so these two save/load errors are likely related.

    Seems the game is having trouble opening save files. When loading data, if it can’t find anything, it will default numbers to 0. Not smart, but it’s a work in progress.

    The 100+ day thing: if the game never loads the goal type and time limit, it has nothing to check for, would be my guess. The goal map will query those variables to display info, thus crashing.

    No sound yet, even though options for it have been put into place. Sorry 🙁

    Will hopefully have that remedied fairly soon.

    #1826

    And fixed!

    When you loaded a save, it never reset the gamemode, instead leaving it to whatever mode you previously selected. And when you start the game fresh, you will have GronV2’s error when loading.

    The fix was…
    – resetting the gamemode
    – reading ‘load_file’ from the correct object
    – also errors in the save/load functions, namely not creating character icons from the roster list.

    (will post to journal when uploaded)

    #1827

    What I found, is that there is no sound in the game, the game will occasionally freeze and require a page refresh, and the save/load outright doesn’t work at all. If I load a saved game, it shows no characters, no location switcher, no money, and stuck on day 1.

    #1828

    Correction, loading a game gives me completely different characters than I had chosen before saving it.

    Fox
    #1829

    Some problems with many characters – game stoped.

    The save/load issue is the same as it was for me.

    #1831

    I later retried loading a game that I was almost finished with, and it still reverted to one character, the starter character I didn’t select. If this game uses flash player, I assume it stores a .SOL file in the usual directory, but I wasn’t able to find one.

    #1833

    Downloaded Ver 5.31.13
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
    firefox 21.0

    Cant seem to get any sound at all.
    After hiring a character, game froze.
    After moving a character up to the top bar, character get “stuck” there.
    Saving game resets all progress back to day 1 and removes all characters.

    I should probably mention that I am also playing the online version, running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, with Firefox 21.0, flash player 11.7.700.202.
