Beta 15f2/f3 feedback thread

BETA 15,15a,15b,15c,15d to 15e+ issues (See readme for additional possible issues)

* Units that previously had the old (pre-combined) "Ranger" perk will show having the "Pyrokinesis" perk and will have to repick a perk in their tree. Only psi units will be able to use pyrokinesis in combat (it's a level 4 perk that they should train, however). To remove it, use the Dev Console command GivePerk -49 on that soldier during a tacitcal mission.

BUG REPORT INSTRUCTIONS

If you think you have found a bug, run the troubleshooting steps in the file included in your download. If this does not fix the bug, use the bugs tab to make your report.

With bug reports (and general feedback), include the following: OS, game version (please only report with latest version), second wave options, difficulty, and any selfmade or third-party mods you have applied. Bug reports without this information may be deleted without a response.

If any mods you have made have even a remote chance of affecting the bug, you'll need to remove them and see if you can reproduce the bug before reporting. We don't support texmod (which can cause problems) or other 3rd-party mods to Long War.

Bug reports that are duplicates will be deleted without a response.

We only want bug reports for the current version of the mod. Bug reports from older versions of the mod will be deleted without a response.

PLEASE do not use the bug report interface to seek technical support assistance or feedback on features. These will be deleted without response.

Bug reports that are simply "hey this happened once" may be deleted without response. We usually can't fix things unless we know the specific steps to reproduce it. We often need savegames.

Bug reports that are user error despite clear instructions posted in readme, troubleshooting file, or this thread will be deleted without response. We just don't have the staff to provide customer service. If you don't get why your report was deleted, assume you missed something. You can post here and maybe someone will help you.

Legit bugs reported here will be moved there. Please follow your reports if we ask for more information or a savegame. We may delete bug reports that people don't follow up on.

***
Finally, the mod is done. It's still a Beta while we make sure we didn't miss any critical bugs or have balance way out of wack. While we appreciate thoughtful and even-handed feedback and ideas, no more major work on the mod is planned. (We do have three or four voicepacks still in the pipeline.)

Did ignoring only half not work out?

Long War is done? What a journey it's been. Hundreds of hours of pure salt, rookie tears, and memorable campaigns.
I'd like to thank Johnnylump and the development team, for creating a mod that - in my eyes - surpasses the base game and has given me close to a thousand of hours of enjoyment (and equally anger). It's not much in the grand scheme, but seeing as I got more out of long war than any other game I've played, I decided to make a donation equivalent to the price of a new game. You definitely deserve more for the work you've put into this, and the limitations you've put up with.

Also, a note on the new game we're working on. Not a ton to say yet, but our working title is "Terra Invictus" and we are preparing a Kickstarter to support it. It is probably best described as a grand strategy alien invasion game. If you'd like to be alerted when the Kickstarter goes live, drop an email to <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='mailto:[email protected]?subject=Terra%20Invictus%20Mailing%20List&body=Please%20add%20me!'>[email protected]</a> and we'll be sure to let you know. Thanks for your interest!
