Valck added a comment to T2677: "Keyboard HUD Icons" remaining issues.

Feedback:
First off, thank you for adding the crucial/none setting, it is very helpful in assessing the usability with/without any on-screen indicators.

Valck added a comment to T2677: "Keyboard HUD Icons" remaining issues.

That's because we removed the old "X: do Y" indicators when we replaced them with the ones near your mouse. A mistake on our part since these new context ones used to be there permanently and only later in those dev builds did we add an option to fully turn them off, without realizing the old indicators weren't there to replace them.

I see. I could have sworn they weren't there before that, but...

So should all this truly be disabled? [R] to X something was always there before and could also not be disabled. Does it get in the way or?

This is simply not true – '[R] to X' wasn't always there before 0.200, the attached screenshots are from 0.199.654#20170826_140955 aka. the latest 'pre' build, and it wasn't there in any of the 'release' or 'pre' builds before that, either. It would have driven me nuts long ago if it had been.

Valck added a comment to T2675: Inner Ship Remotes register clicks in build mode.

More testing reveals the issue is not restricted to build mode only; it also occurs when entering the pause menu ([ESC]) from flight mode, and even another level further down, in the options menu.
Similar but not identical issues I found while searching before reporting this bug were T57 and T2422, both presumed fixed.

Valck added a comment to T407: windowPositionAndSizeConfig.tag not being created or changed from Multiplayer.

Apparently the file does get written when I "exit to desktop", or if the game shuts itself down in a controlled manner because of an error. It does not get written if I "exit to main menu".

Valck added a comment to T2635: ClassCastException when docking to a stick shop with reactor on board.

My apologies, I just accidentally confirmed independently the error does in fact exist.
Went on play.star-made.org, found a shop, docked as I always do before logging out... there may now be a cluster of sectors that are inaccessible.

Valck added a comment to T2495: is waiting for docks | still needs entities to dock on it - false positive.

I may have another puzzle piece to add.
Recently this error struck on a single player universe. I strongly suspect shipyards, specifically upsizing shipyards to accommodate a too large design that is already loaded, but I don't have proof of that - I continued to play in this world for quite a while regardless, over multiple sessions, so no chance to find any logs from then.

No idea why this is repeatedly being tagged as "Waiting on Author"; without further input from Schine or more feedback from other players, all has been said as far as I am concerned.

I'm seeing this on a fresh install of 0.199.253.
Previously we had ASTEROIDS_ENABLE_DYNAMIC_PHYSICS = false, so it may have gone unnoticed if there were no collision checks happening.

Valck added a comment to T1741: "Adapter" and "Driver Version" are reported as "null" in graphcisinfo.txt.

It is irrelevant insofar as the information is duplicated in other places.
However because of this lack of information in the expected places, lancake suggested I go download and install drivers when I already had the latest, and as such I see a potential issue with support, however trivial.
I know my system, and know when and how to install drivers, but someone less computer literate might follow the suggestion and get frustrated or potentially even mess up their installation when it isn't necessary in the first place.

Valck added a comment to T1683: sell/buy prices affect purchase/sale orders and vice versa.

As the shop owner, I find it surprising that if I set a sell order, the shop's sell price doesn't reflect this, but the buy price does.
What the customer gets to see is another thing entirely, but I think to me as the shop owner, the interface should coherently refer to sales prices as sales and purchase prices as purchases, no matter which part of the interface I view. If I place a buy order, I want to buy something; likewise, if I set the shop sell price, I intend to sell something to somebody at that price, and expect to find a sell order to that effect.

Valck added a comment to T1716: "Additional Stars" only show in spawn galaxy.

I wasn't sure if the setting had been intended to be repurposed for the new stars, that's why I included it in the report. If it hadn't, removing a configuration option that doesn't have any purpose might make sense and avoid confusion.

Confirmed, I did a fresh install of the latest dev build in an empty directory, and couldn't replicate the effect there. Maybe it has something to do with the world that has been generated years ago.

Fine with that.
I originally had it as part of my last comment in T1157, but split it off into its own task because I felt it was less about the typos, and more about making things easier for users/support staff.

Valck added a comment to T1689: Settings reset when starting a dedicated server.

That's to be expected, as both the server process and the client do write the config files, even if nothing has changed. Whoever goes last, wins.
As a workaround, have two installations, one for the server, one for the client.

Yes. But it would be definitely more mods friendly (I guess some peoples would create some launcher's skins, etc.).
