# 1 BUGS in terradome
05-13-2011, 07:00 PM
their are some game bugs in terradome right now i found out about today playing on RA difficulty

one is the coin toss is still bugged in deja vu and today only 8 out of the 10 people flipped coins

second bug is that once a engenieer dies it dosent automatically reset to the begining like it should, instead you get the message but keep fighting undine

Can't say that only 8 toss coins, it's just that 2 of the 10 only toss it very rarely. patience is a virtue here. Also it seems it's the same NPC EVERY time. So just remember which NPC take their time with coin tossing for next time.

my whole team was watching the last two people for 10 minutes before we gave up because nobody fliped a coin so we just scanned a random person, that tells you theirs a problem

Ten minutes is very long. I can undestand the frustration with that.
However those NPCs have two sets of animation. One is an idle animation that is displayed for x seconds. The other is a chat animation that's used for teh coin toss.
They are weighted differently.
Every time the idle animation comes to an end after let's say 20 seconds, the system rolls a dice on which animation it displays next. There is a 9 in 10 chance (pure speculation on the actual numbers) it's the idle animation again and only 1 in 10 chance it's the coin toss or whatever other animation it has if it's not the right NPC.
So you just had really bad luck with it.
However you can find the right one by method of elimination also. If the NPC you are watching is displaying two different animation you can rule it out and focus on the others antil only one is left if the right one doesn't toss the coin by then...

Would be easier ofcourse, if Gozer adjusted the weight times of those 2 NPC's a bit or at least of those around them, so you can do it a few minutes faster.

But the mechanic per se isn't broken. It's working as intended.

We found all ten NPC. Gozer is planning on redoing all STF after season 4 and terradome wasn't even his but he stated that it will be scraping it and redesign.
