FYI: I've got a serious performance problem right now. The changes I made to improve trade routes are taking way too long.

I need to cache more data. But for now, updates are taking about 5 seconds. I'll fix this in my next update.
Deployed a fix. Updates should be much faster now.

Crash in CGameSession::OnAnimate

I'm trying to track down a crash after the player is killed. So far, it looks like it only happens when the player has insurance, but I have not been able to reproduce it. If anyone has any more information on this crash (e.g., how they died, etc.), then please post it here. Here are the relevant cr...

Re: Era 5

That would be amazing! I really love this game and the stand alone version from the way back machine. I just got back to messing with it after real life settled down a bit and a new Era 5 is like an early birthday. Would you prefer feedback / bug reports on the forums, the Anacreon Dev on ministry,...

Is it save to load a save created with beta 5? Is anything expected to break?
Yes, it's safe to load a beta 5 game in release 1.8.

I repeated the circumstances that caused one of the "On Animate" crashes (lifting the event horizon in Heretic) and this time I got debug code instead of a crash.
I'll take a look. Added here: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/record.hexm?id=85114

1.8 Release

1.8 is finally available on the Multiverse: https://multiverse.kronosaur.com/news.hexm?id=2074 Thanks to everyone who made this possible. It's been longer than usual to get a major release out, but I think it's worth it. p.s.: I'm having some trouble upgrading from 1.7 (which I'm debugging). If you ...

Era 5

In a couple of week I should have Transcendence 1.8 released. At that point, I'd like to dedicate a couple of weeks to work on Anacreon. I'll finish up Era 4 work (some bugfixes) and get started on Era 5.

I'll post a more detailed plan after Transcendence 1.8.

Re: 1.8 Beta 5

I just released a hotfix: 1.8 Beta 5.1 This fixes 3 problems: 1. The bug with libraries not downloading. 2. Can't dock with Mule auton 3. Crashes during upgrade Unfortunately, the crashes during upgrade are caused by the old version, so upgrading to 1.8 Beta 5.1 could still crash. The problem is tha...

Re: 1.8 Beta 5

Are the game crashes caused by "miscellaneous animation" fixed in this version? I see these crashes on Ministry tagged with "next release" but not tagged with "1.8b5". I think that's a showstopper bug. I added a bunch of debug code in 1.8 beta 5 to track that specific crash. If it happens again I h...

Re: 1.8 Beta 5

Downloaded the zip, extracted, ran Trans and signed in. Only game files downloaded, no libraries. EP, VOTG, CC, REN, TBR and Osaka all show "filename.tdb: Line (nn): Unable to find library:hexNumber". SOTP plus the HD, Debug Part I and AE-FunctionHelp all look OK but I haven't check them yet.
