Sorry for the disruption today. Our scouting events crossed the 1 million threshold, and unleashed some bugs caused by the way the Torque game engine handles numbers of this size.

I eventually figured out a work-around (I think).

If anyone has events that were affected and need help, let me know the ID numbers.

That's true!

I was amazed the bug didn't occur much sooner, when other things in the game went past 1 million.. e.g. characters are now at 2.6 million, weapons are at 3.7 million etc.

It turns out it's only when you start manipulating the numbers mathematically that they go wrong. Within the actual game engine, none of those other numbers are ever edited.

There's at least one other residual bug too, so I'll be working on it later today and will re-patch.

Sam, I don't know if you are aware of it, but events don't auto load anymore, you have to find your event and then click on it after it starts.

Yes, I was just working on that and it should be ok now (scripts v.321). I also figured out why some people weren't getting patched correctly. So hopefully v.321 should fix the remaining bits we know about from the 'million events bug'

It should be automatic if you run the program via the Launcher (note: if on Windows, right-click this and run 'as administrator').
Alternatively, re-download the full pre-patched version from the 'Download Game' page.
