The Standoff Episode 3 Simulator Scoreboards have been a big hit. Dozens of fans have logged in their best marks, and the rankings change daily. However, on some configurations, the simulator has crashed, and the game's development team is urgently trying to resolve this issue. If you've had this happen, help isolate the bug by posting the details of your situation to the Forums.
We're trying to fix a couple of bugs in our simulator missions that could be very annoying when you're on your way to getting a high score... and we need your guys to help us with that.
If you haven't suited up yet, check out the How To Guide.
The first problem is that sometimes, on certain machines, the game crashes at the start of a new wave in the gauntlets. We haven't figured out a good way to reproduce that bug, so we don't know how to fix it. What we need from you guys is that anyone who experiences one of these crashes gives us a bit of information on under which conditions the crash has happened:
That'll allow us to see if there's anything in common between the different systems which experience this crash, which is the first step in trying to fix it.
- Your system specs (Processor, memory, video card, version of Windows)
- Your Standoff launcher settings (Resolution, color bits, fighter/capship/asteroid viewing distances)
- When did it crash (as in, at the start of which waves?)
