Fixed a bug where an orc's current action is set to "move" but the orc isn't told where to go (always tried to go to 0, 0).

Fixed this little bug, too:
:arrow: Aufzyver shoots and misses the goal!HE SCORES!! A 3 point goal!

That's right, there was a way for an orc to miss the goal and still score. Distracted goal official? Ricochet? Blind, stupid, simple, doo-dah, clueless luck?

Well, not any more. :twisted:

Changing around the way the simulation updates the results brought average game run time from 10-11 minutes down to 3-4 (though you can't watch the playback until it's all done). That means on a busy game day, it could take 2 hours before you see results. That's still a little slow for my liking but at this point I'm not sure what else I am going to do to speed it up. It's "fast enough for now."

Over the last couple days I did a few things:
:arrow: Fixed accounts that had interest applied for multiple weeks while the game was down.
:arrow: Fixed a minor issue with armor not providing full protection in-game.
:arrow: Fixed a problem with armor display on game text playback.
:arrow: Fixed a problem with random resurrections overnight after death in a game.
:arrow: Fixed a problem with orcs being caught looting and getting dinged for two days in jail.

Fixed an issue with autopilots not doing their rollover. Hopefully this will clear up some of the other league problems I'm seeing (specifically with rollover leagues not ending correctly). I'll know tomorrow morning!

I rolled out a change to game event saving (things like faceoffs, goals, passes, etc.) that should reduce the time it takes the simulation to run by about 30 seconds per game. As an example that would have saved approximately 20 minutes yesterday, finishing games around 8:15 pm instead. This is a pretty significant reduction (13% or so), but obviously more work needs to be done here since it still takes an average of 3 minutes 28 seconds per game.

This doesn't count the time it takes to save playback information, which happens after games are done running. That takes an additional four hours. I have a plan for reducing that time, though it's a bigger change.

It's still way faster than the original process from 2001 where games ran on a laptop, took 30 minutes to run and save each game, and required me to be on the computer the whole time! :shock:

It worked! I only wish I knew what it did. I need to add a bit of logging or something to the process. Heh.

As several of you know there was a problem with the way interest was charged on loans. I have found that problem and fixed it. If you see any loans with too much interest, please let me know via email or by posting on the bug forum.

Fixed a bug with the assistant also assigning looters when the team had assistant heal selected. :roll:

The commissioner was on vacation, and in his absence, orcs were just about begging for jobs, allowing their asking price to drop below 200 gold. Vacation is over, and so are the bargains!
