So I've been sitting here for around five minutes after finished fire delay.
The timer just goes back to 59s every time it reloads the page.
It always went away like within one or two minutes, but looks like it's stuck now..
Is there anything I can do?

Same problem here, the timer resets to 59 seconds each time. I remember we had this bug a few months ago, as well, but forget what the cause was.

Hyperspace is working fine -- I've only heard of issues with Force training and fire delay.

Also stuck in fire delay that should have been over half an hour ago.

We're working on it, but it is slow going. Expect it to persist for most of the day.


May your path be swift, and your pockets heavy:

And after working for a few hours, it's stuck again.

All is well once more... for now.

Looks like the fire delay is still causing issues. Both of my squads are in fire delay still. The last time any were active was Battle Report - Year 18 Day 107, 16:18:00

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /swcombine/htdocs/code/libs/server21/entities/entityInfo.inc on line 480
Error on the page, could not run shutdown functions

should I report? It seems mostly to happen when the group I target is moving

Darlene, got the same error that you got just now. Looks like the machine elves are at it again.

There is a bug about it, if you can provide information as to how to reproduce the bug on the dev server please add to it: http://bugs.swcombine.com/view.php?id=4275

So far I have been unable to reproduce this error. It is not as simple as just "enemy is moving".

Well, it's gone now. Everything is back to normal.

Will provide info as requested.

It's odd, too: I didn't get that error when others did during the previous problems.

Year 18 Day 109 14:16
Here too, haven't been able to reproduce.

"...haven't been able to reproduce." 

Cue snare drum. 0_o

Seems like it has something to do with moving creatures, maybe at long range (over 10 distance). There seems to be no problem with attacking stationary targets.

Year 18 Day 109 20:43
I figured it out, it's most likely to occur when you are out of the vision range of the bandit and they must be moving.

It's to do with how parties work and removal of bandits from their parties.

Should be fixed for next sync, for now avoid shooting bandits who are moving, and if your npc squads come out of a fire delay and want to take a shot at a moving target (and they kill a party member of that target in that shot), they also will get stuck with the same bug. This will need to be fixed manually after next sync, we do not currently have tools to do this fix.

Not wanting to rush developers or anything but... wouldn't it be a good idea to make this a hotfix sync? Seeing how not everyone checks the forums and it's a pretty game breaking bug.

Or at the least a sim news warning about said bug.


Year 18 Day 109 22:39
At the point when they get a chance, I think they'll post something. The Admins have warned us in the past about other problems/bugs, and warned us also they wouldn't get some of them fixed until next sync. As a 24/7 hunter, I can adjust to not being able to hit moving targets for a while.

IG-wise, I just interpret it as the Derra Virus beginning to mutate. (0~o)

On another note, bravos and bravas to the people who worked together to figure this out in two days. Especially Clarr and Ted "Brute Force" Winter, and one-armed Kay. (insert thumbs-up emoji for K -- but only one)

And can I also say, it's appreciated that the current admins take the time to tell us what the problem was, and kept us in the loop.

By the way:

The in-game mechanic is quite unique, and specific: the critters have to be moving, *and* one of them in the group has to be killed. What happens is, it gets killed over and over again for 30 seconds -- and then it, or they, get up and just keep right on moving.

And they actually do keep moving in the game, too.

As if they were *undead.*

Congratulations, galaxy: you've created the first zombie virus in space. In this galaxy, at least.

I would actually leave this error in place, if I could. Or at least, not be in a hurry to fix it. I think everyone who gets this error should request a "I Shot a Zombie" achievement badge.

Get 'em while they last!

The bug doesn't seem to lock players up, or affect the overall system; if it did, I expect the Admins would fix it a lot sooner.

Also also:

You *can* attack them moving targets, those targets being bandits on Derra or Serroco, or just critters elsewhere, and not kill anything, and combat still resolves just fine.

For anyone that doubted whether they were really zombified or not.

If that achievement became a thing I would definitely do it on purpose haha!
