Duplicate attacks possible? (free membership!): 6/12/2012 09:39:51

One of the things that the WarLight server checks when you submit orders is that you didn't issue multiple attacks between the same two territories, since that isn't allowed.

Normally, this should not be possible. When you issue an attack, the game UI checks if you've already issued an attack between those same territories, and updates the existing order instead of creating a new one in your orders list.

However, I see from the WarLight error logs that some people are, in fact, getting multiple attacks between the same two territories in their orders list. If they try to commit their turn, they get a big fat error message (the error says CannotOrderSameTerritoryTwice).

I'd like to fix this bug but I've never seen it happen myself, and I can't seem to figure out how to make it happen.

I'll give a free lifetime membership to the first person who can tell me how to reproduce this bug. If you know how to get multiple attacks between the same two territories in your orders list, post how here or send me an e-mail at fizzer@warlight.net. (if you already have a membership, you can give the free one to a friend.)

It happens in both single-player and multi-player. Despite everything I've tried, I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

I've had this a few times before.

One way to do it is when making an attack, click in the box to set the number of troops, then at the same time press enter while clicking "okay".

Ah, you don't even need to click in the input box first. Just the combination of hitting enter and clicking okay does it.

Just to let you know, theres a bug where you press enter twice (in a space of a second) and the chat comes up twice on public/team or private chat. Not sure it is fixable though?

Fizzer, what have you done..?
Now everyone will report bugs only for the membership. And people that already reported bugs (including me, for example) will ask for membership too.

we can only hope that people will only stay on the lookout for real bugs and not make them up

@fizzer

out of interest, approximately how many people buy membership each day (or week, or month if appropriate)?

Moros, who cares? That's even better... more people reporting bugs = more bugs fixed. Fizzer isn't required to give every bug reporter a membership and people shouldn't assume they would get a membership for reporting a bug. And if you think that whiny post will guilt trip Fizzer into giving you a membership, you're delusional.

Whiny post? What makes you think that? I only noted I also reported a few bugs as an example of how many people have done that.

huruey is essentially a mercenary bug-fixer, who was hired by fizzer. fizzer couldn't fix this particular bug, so he paid someone else to do it. no different to hiring someone to fix a watch or your plumbing, because you dont know how to.
