Bug-tastic
Like many I bought Eador on sale. It looked really good, and the few reviews I had found at the time had mentioned that most of the serious bugs were fixed. So I took a chance on a studio I never heard of and bought the game.

To keep this from getting too long I'll try to bullet point how things went for me.

- 0 hp error
- Couldn't load a save that was made towards the end of the tutorial.
- Replayed tutorial.
- Figured out "Quick Combat" is a great way to bypass the 0 hp bug.
- Finished tutorial, saved game, started new map, game crashes a few turns in.
- Loading saves from before crash lock the games. Had to start over.
- Play tutorial again and save on floating island map.
- Start a new map, get about 40 turns in, game crashes.
- Check forums and see others with similar issues.
- Try beta-patch.
- Can't load old files. Play tutorial...again.
- Save at floating island map. Delete old corrupted save on floating island map. Game crashes.
- Reload second save, still works.
- Start a new map, get another 30 or so turns in when game freezes. Tabbing to desktop shows error: "Invalid Pointer Operation."
- Load save, play some more, save, play some more, another Pointer error.
- Load save, play some more, save, play some more, another Pointer error.
- Load save, play some more, save, play some more, another Pointer error....
- Load save, play some more, game crashes, go to forums.

I've got about 5 hours into this game. When it works, its fun. I want to play it. But right now it looks like its playing me more than anything else. From what I can tell, its been a year since release and I can't play more than an hour at a time. This one of those games that decides to let you play it or can we expect some fixes for this?

Are you me?

No, but seriously, I've experienced a lot of these as well. The '0 HP' bug is sooooo frustrating. Minding your own business, playing a battle when suddenly...oops, better reload so I can actually freaking continue.

I got the 0hp bug in the first tutorial battle and took that as a sign to not waste my time any further.

The bits I have played, or ar able to play rather, are fun. But it just can't stay up and running long enough to really make it worth it.

Is there an email list I can subscribe to that will notify me when most of this is fixed? I really have a hard time playing as it is and seeing it on my installed games list is irritating.

Me too, just 0 HP bug a rarely invalid pointer operation (once per 3-4 hours max) - no problems with saving/loading so far.

Is the 0hp bug still present with the last update? One would think they care for the game to correct that ♥♥♥♥ty happening.
I'm wanting to buy i, but this would make it almost unplayable for my son...

0hp bug is still here even if you update.

There's ways to handle it aside from just coping. But assuming your son is a young kid, I couldn't recommend it. Coping or working aorund it is too much a hassle and I'd wager any kid with get too bored or frustrated rather quickly.

Yep, have these. I also purchased after beleiving the company was attempting to win back the trust of the community after recent release. Proven wrong.

Its not that the company isn't trying, its just that they have a nasty habit of having the updates fix game-breaking bugs, only have said update make more game-breaking bugs.

The 0hp bugged was fixed with beta patch.

I had the 0 hp bug many times, I just kill everyone else then auto resolve.

It's filled to the brim with bugs, I feel like every time the developers fix a bug 2 others sprout, but I earnestly think this game is fantastic regardless of buggyness.
