: [Confirm Fix] Survivalist stuck in flee on Emilia's mission
: ushas May 21, 2017, 01:46:11 AM
(v16, linux, HB)

Sam was minding his business in the corner with a precision rifle and this one came to box him. So we shoot him with a gun and next time he changes his mind and is about to flee...

1. There is a game freeze (-> restart) at the turn of this survivalist unit when decides to flee. The game shows the flag underneath, but stops at that.

There are many errors in the log. This one near the end is perhaps happening close to the point of freeze:

2. Before the above, at the Sam's turn I also got the tooltip not-showing. Not sure if or how related to the one reported by Nomad. Practically, during Sam's turn pointing a mouse over this same unit will show nothing. But eventually the game recovers when I point on another enemy and from that point on it works correctly again. No leaving the battle screen before.

3. In the log, during the Sam's turn there are many errors following the line "This character is strafing to fire from tile". Not sure why he would do that, as I think the situation didn't warrant it. In game there wasn't any strafing done I think.

4. A black dustbin object from the picture (and another next to it) is having clipping issue, the front shield icons being inside.

Seems fleeing is against the survivalist nature. Have noticed some issues with the stafing mechanic - hopefully this will help to narrow down the problem. Were you using shotgun, by any chance?

Forgot to mention, one of his colleagues already fled a turn or two before. No problem with leaving the map. Appears we are terrifying even to survivalists. 8)

No shotgun. Initially, Sam was using precision rifle, switched and used General Arms Patriot when the foe came close. Till that moment everything was ok. 

Tried to redo the mission before, but they are not easy to lure. Didn't recreate. One more thing: when an enemy is killed right in that spot (the same tile coordinates), seems the game doesn't let you shoot around the corner  like it's not available anymore. But I'm not sure about this.

Potentially linked to insufficient error checking on the combatant queue.
