# 1 Lock up in Map pick list
03-03-2013, 07:54 AM
Hey guys - this is my first post on the forum. Sorry its a bug report.



BUG: Locking up in foundry pick list

Short summary.

Description:

My STO is locking up when I'm picking items from the map list in the Foundry. It doesn't happen all the time. When it does, it comes from picking a different map each time. My mouse cursor can still move - I just can't select anything. Getting out of the program with task manager works just fine.

CATEGORY :

If it's Map Editor, Story Editor, User Interface (UI), Graphics, Audio, Preview Mode, etc.

How to reproduce (If known.)

1- Select Create Map
2- Select Pre-made map
3- click on a map
4- sometimes it works, sometimes it locks up
(I think it happened once when selecting from a different pick list)

LOCATION:

Pick lists in Foundry

Commentary:
I also noticed that it's patching a file at the top corner of my screen every time.

####


Thanks

Have you tried waiting for the file to finish patching?

STO uses a micro-patching system where maps and such that have not been used before get patched as they are accessed. This sounds like the affected maps just haven't patched and so aren't opening until they get patched.

This happened to me last night. Right when I clicked on the name of an interior, the foundry completely froze. No crash or error message. After waiting for about 2 minutes, I force ended STO in my task manager.

Have had this happen too, and have waited up to 15 mins before forcing out with the 3-finger salute

I've reproduced this and it's on the list, the usual disclaimers, etc.

# 7 Bugs with Picking

Ok, so I don't know if this has been answered, mainly because I'm not a techie, just a Trekkie, but when I try to pick up certain items on any map, Foundry or other wise, some I can, others I can't. Not sure if its just me, or if its actually a bug that needs squashed. Thanks all.
