....ya..... you think you fixed some bugs.....


- 2 awards went to a spec again
- playing a 1v1 we both crashed a couple of times
- my account that was connected via irc client showed up in the adv playerlist..... it couldnt even be ingame.
- as a bonus the game result was undecided

Infolog of my crash:

The awards issue is a known bug, but thanks for reporting. Of course it never appeared in the test games because we didn't have spectators! Same with 'spectators' that are not connected sometimes being shown in AdvPlList.

That crash looks unrelated and I guess you should submit it as an engine issue.

First game watched today. I was a spectator and I saw "commander sliding after unload from transport" bug. Maybe it's old engine bug or smth like that.

This is an engine bug that's been fixed for 95.0.

The pop-up structures bug is a BA bug, thanks.

Here's an infolog.txt for a crash that occurred in-game for no apparent reason today. I and other people have been getting in-game crashes frequently since 7.79 was released yesterday.

strange thing happened.
I was a spec. And when I clicked on hover transport with crawling bombs - spring just closed. I looked in infolog for crash message but there were no crash. Fedora "automatic bug reporting tool" don't detected crash too. So it was not crash.

Looks like my spring got "exit" command. But HOW??
Replay attached. I think its ended when I clicked on that transport.

Maybe I clicked on invisible "quit" button on Awards widget? (just my guess)

We fixed some more bugs -> 7.81 ;)

Amongst others, the 'magical invisible crash button' was entirely my fault and is now gone!

Hmmm - it is the same button but an unrelated problem with it.

I can't reproduce your bug - those buttons always work for me! I'll try and find out what's going on...
