Class design and building ships
« on: July 11, 2012, 02:37:27 PM »
Hi,

I'm new to this game and (like many) very confused.  I've tried following the tutorial on the wiki, but some things are not explained (I think).  I'm designing the ship like the one in the tutorial and after adding my second engine or sensor, the summary only displays the name of the ship, all the info about speed and armor just vanishes.  I also cannot build anything (I think I know how to do it, but the ship class doesn't show up).  Thanks in advance!

Please post screenshots of both the design page and the summary page. I've yet to see anything like that.

I can delete the ship summary myself, but making any further changes to the design brings it all back.

Ok here are the screenshots! I followed the tutorial exactly (also the video tutorial) and still the same :( reinstalled it completely too (also using the wiki for this)!

Silly question. You did click the New button first?

Defiitely something wrong there :). Its almost as if the summary has started to display and then stopped. What happens if you add anything or remove it?

Whenever I add something it adds up in the screen on the right but, the biggest screen stays like in the screen shot.

That is very odd indeed :S

By chance, did you manually remove the text in the summary box?

Ah, when I remove the last added item (which causes the text to vanish) the text comes back, though that isn't really handy since I could only add 2 things before the text vanishes.  :(

If you start a new game, does the behavior persist?

Yes, I have reinstalled the game on several locations, started multiple games (with different names).  Can't try on another computer sadly.  Don't understand why it happens all the time.

My instinct is to call it a write-protect or anti-virus problem; the game might have trouble accessing the database. Also, are you running windows 7?

This sounds like it could be Win7's automatic write protect. Either install the game in an 'allowed' place (under your profile in docs and settings) or run it as administrator. I have found I need to run most things under administrator.
I have my own subforum now!
