1.13.2 has definitely fixed the issue with not being able to vote for a difficulty on the loading screen (it was an issue with some locales).
Shooper  [author] Dec 13, 2019 @ 9:07pm 
I've never heard of that issue before. I've recently pushed up a new version with some fixes, perhaps now it is working for you. If not, please message me, and I will try to help diagnose and fix the problem.

All of a sudden I can't even vote for a difficulty, all I can do is select the challenge mode voting and that's it, I don't even have the required level to do that so it auto-votes Normal, rip

"one minor issue that i have that really gets in the way though is that i can't pick up pills directly into my pill pouch"

It is an annoying quirk of the Dota system, but there isn't a good way for the SWAT game code to know when a unit attempts to pick up an item but has full inventory. You can purchase stackable items, like drugs, from stores even if you have full inventory and it will auto go into stacks if possible.

We have paused development for a while as we reached a point where we were reasonably happy with the state of the game, and wanted to spend some time working on other projects before coming back to add new content to SWAT. We have a beta waiting with some new cosmetic additions for SWAT officers, which we hope to push out to release within the next few weeks.

Regarding the pill pouch, one option is to use the "active" ability of the pill pouch item. The active ability is a ground-target spell which will pick up any pills in a small radius of the target, including taking the contents of any pill pouches on the ground.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the game, feel free to join our discord for more discussions!

is this game still being developed? looks like there haven't been any patches or updates for a while... shame, because there was good progress being made, and this seems to be a really faithful adaptation of the wc3 mod that i really enjoyed.

one minor issue that i have that really gets in the way though is that i can't pick up pills directly into my pill pouch - i have to make an inventory spot first, pick up the pill, and then pick up the item again. if development is ongoing this would really improve game play!

thanks for all the work done so far - cheers

never mind i was just too ignorant ! its working lovely game.

Thanks. I have not heard reports of the character creation breaking. Are you deleting a slot, selecting the now empty slot, then making a new character and hitting Confirm, selecting that new slot to load into the game, and then it is loading the hero that was in the slot when you deleted it?
