Follow-up Comment #19, bug #18764 (project freeciv): Some savegames from jimishol on Friday, and IRC log for context.
Once again, the Statue of Liberty is in play. 10:02 < jimishol> hi, there. it's almost my first game i try to play. and its against normal AI . at gentoo testing linux. im pretty sure that at every turn i checked if i had all governments available. i have spent several hours i want to go it through the end but im facing this http://civland.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=118 Usually i loaded earliest rounds and going from there but now it doesnt work for the last 5 rounds. does anyone know how c 10:02 < jimishol> ould it be to quit when all is ok and on loading the last round to have this government bug? 10:13 < jtn> jimishol: ergh. This is a known bug that we so far haven't been able to track down: http://gna.org/bugs/?18764 10:13 < jtn> I don't have anthing to suggest, really, I'm afraid :( 10:14 < jtn> What version are you using, and what kind of client? 10:14 < jimishol> txs for replying. so everyone has it. is there a better work around than mine? 10:15 < jtn> everyone has it> no, it's intermittent and hard to reproduce; that's why we haven't tracked it down. 10:16 < jimishol> freeciv 2.4.2 giu-gtk-2.0 client 10:16 < jimishol> gui-gtk 10:19 < jimishol> i first noticed when changed to democracy but now it happens all alone. the mystery is that since i closed it yesterday all was ok. upon loading governments were missing without game acting at all 10:21 < jimishol> i found i game 18 rounds earlier that is ok :) 10:23 < jimishol> can i change goverment by hand? with some server command? its not cheating since i have the liberty statue 10:32 < jtn> jimishol: the only thing I can think of is loading the game into another client, if you have one available, change government, save, and continue from there 10:32 < jtn> bit crap I know 10:33 < jtn> if you have a savegame that you can reproduce it from, can you attach it to the ticket? Might help us track it down 10:33 < jtn> "reproduce it from"> the bug, I mean 10:36 < jimishol> hmmm, tried but sdl clients doesnt seem to work perhaps against gnome-shell i use. no i cant reproduce i only have saves that seems ok. i will try to reproduce if i succeed i will contact here first. txs a lot guys 10:42 < akfaew> what about editing the .sav? 10:48 < jimishol> i dont have target_government_name i only have government_name="Democracy" I suggest when i have to change government i will edit this one and reload. txs 10:49 < jimishol> im in Democracy but list of gov... is empty 10:51 < persia> jimishol: To confirm, if you save the game demonstrating the bug, and reopen it, the bug is gone? 10:59 < jimishol> no , i have to load earlier rounds. At every round i had full list of governments i mannually saved to a file i named 'still-ok' but obviously didnt protected me since the still-ok yesterday , upon loading today became STILL-BUG. and about 18 earlier rounds of autosave still have the bug even if i checked them yesterday and saved them manually too on 'still-ok' . i will reboot. to see if 'still-ok' is still ok, 11:14 < jimishol> no reboot didnt help 11:15 < persia> So the problem isn't about the save files particularly, but something about the state of the client? The same savefile can have or not have the bug? 11:16 < jimishol> but this time one of sdl client worked. i seek the option to see the govverments 11:25 < jimishol> well i didnt found the list of goverments BUT as i said i loaded with sdl client, that worked this time, the 'still-ok' file and i saved it at once it saved as freeciv-T0270-Y01790-manual.sav.bz2 11:26 < jimishol> i opened it with gui-gtk and list WAS there 11:26 < persia> That's...odd. Hrmmm. 11:26 < persia> Well, glad to hear you got your game back :) 11:27 < jimishol> if i open freeciv-T0270-Y01790-auto.sav.bz2 or still-ok.sav.bz2 they produce the bug. i open freeciv-T0270-Y01790-manual and its ok 11:27 < jtn> first one to track this bug down gets virtual cookie 11:28 < jtn> when I got closest, its presence depended on whether my completely unrelated instrumentation was compiled in 11:28 < jimishol> should i upload the auto.sav that has the bug and manual.sav that created by sdl client and is ok? 11:28 < jtn> jimishol: Can't hurt.
