minor race hidden (from diplomacy) - bug fix
Posted: Sun Oct 04, 2009 11:48 am
Good news, using the new knowledge gained from the Ferengi (free) trade routes code
I've found a fix for one of the most annoying bugs of BotF.
As speculated here
, when signing trade treaties, the entry at [systInfo
+3Fh] can prevent the first contact with unknown minor races (although by encounter of independent
minor-ships it's still possible).
The bugged code hides in sub_46A770
and can be overridden quite easy by removing of the jump statement at 46A7F7:
0F 85 7A 00 00 00
90 90 90 90 90 90
No more worrying about signing of treaties with other empires.

I agree great find,

This bug was rally anoying! thanks for solving it. Also I think Spocks-cuddly-tribble deserves the Code Master title for all his work.

I have offered it to him and he declined.
(this was about same time Gowron and DCER was given honor)
I hope he changes his mind
I really hope he changes his mind as well. He truly merits the title IMHO, even if he feels he doesn't.

Another excellent find, nice one
Time to lock up your minor races because I sense a Biblical level of bribery going on in MP now

this is awesome... ive always hated declaring war on my allies and never being able to bribe their minors away from them

Oh, this is awsome. I hope everybody updates their mods for this fix. This has always been my biggest complaint with botf.

you know for years and now nearly a decade i've played as the feds and everytime in a game with minors i've played i've always rejected lucrative friendship treaties if my intelligence reports showed minor races with in that empire. Wll Done it is truly an great improvment to the diplomacy

Congratulations, S.C. Tribble, this has really been one of the most sought-after bugfixes. And also looking at your other recent research, like the phantom dilithium fix and the Ferengi free trade route code, I think your new rank is really hard-earned, and I'm happy to see that we have a third code master now
Outstanding work, thank you very much
My BOP to-do list just exploded ^^
