I think I've stumbled upon a fresh bug caused in 1.2.4.

For the mission where you return to the docks with Shannon Half-Face, instead of my own character, I am presented with the following in the screen where you outfit your runners:


When loading into the docks my character is replaced by this avatar and all of my skills are linked to that of Shannon rather than my own characters skills.

I tried rewinding and encountered the problem again. Loading an older save from before the release of 1.2.4 gives the same issue.

I have a strange bug with biggest ley line nodes.

First of all, my machine may not the best, but this game runs quite fine all the time.

Sometimes, if my PC (magesham) is sitting on biggest ley lines, my computer gets really slow everytime then its my PC turn. Other characters can use biggest ley lines without any problems, just if my PC sit on them for at least one turn, the game gets really really slow.
The game do not crash, and I can continue normally if after some waiting I eventually manage to leave the big ley line.

Isn't such a big issue, because I can just ignore big ley lines, but they support the nice 60 dmg flamethrower crits :(.

Yay, thanks for giving Shannon back :D Now I can continue!

Can someone tell me is it just me or the aiming system in the Dragonfall campaign is totally screwed? I mean I missed 3 shots in a row where the hit probability was 76% and then proceed to miss 3 more with 81% probability to hit... In a row. I even managed to miss 99% probability to hit, although only one time but that's something.
Anarky 7. mar 2014 kl. 1:36 
76% to hit is still a 24% to miss. Sometimes you just get bad rolls. Ive had it happen to myself. But I dont think theres anything going on or at least not that I noticed prior to 1.2.4.

Curse the Gods of probablity and the random number generator.

Just played through a UGC and the aiming seemed pretty solid.
red-leader 7. mar 2014 kl. 1:48 
Dunno. I played Dead man's switch without saves. It was a solid playthrough, no problems encountered. It was a couple of months ago. Then I bought Dragonfall and it is impossible to play without saves - missing 3, 6 times of 70+% is usual, it happens all the time. So I'm savescamming because my characters can't hit a thing even in best conditions. Missing 1 shot that has 76% possibility to hit is 24%, that's correct but missing 3 in a row is 0,24*0,24*0,24=0,013824 which is 1,3824% probability. And it happens to me all the time. Statistically I can't be THAT unlucky.

Since the latest download has occurred I can no longer load my save games without my character being replaced by a NPC. Hugely frustrating, would like to know if a fix is on the way soon or how to get my moneyback.

I just started the mission to extract Saada, though I hired no extra crew, but when I enter the place I have a duplicate of my own character with '_avatar' after its name.

Double thumbs up, and keep up the excellent support. 7. mar 2014 kl. 4:17

I missed not one, but THREE 99% shots over the course of the entire campaign. While there's no reason to suspect foul play from RNG, it's still kind of weird.

More issues with character loading for patch 1.2.4
Shadow 7. mar 2014 kl. 5:22 
"Gay Dice" rule:

You always remember missing a 99% but never complain about hitting a 1%, if you ever take that shot. Yet they always kind of seem to even out in the end.

I have done APEX RISING and going to do RETURN TO HARFELD.
But when the loading screen is done for RETUYRN TO HARFELD my character have become the character I choose for the mission first.
So its Eiger, Blitz or Dietrich. Lets say I choose Blitz first for the mission then my character is Blitz then Blitz becomes Blitz_avatar.
Tried diffrent save games but still my character gets switched out?!?!?!

There's an active thread on this issue You're not alone, Chummer. ^_^

HBS gets in to work in a few hours, they'll see this pretty quickly. I'm hoping they'll have a rollback or fix later today.

Is anyone NOT getting the avatar bug?
