Planet selection bug :: May 30, 2012 @ 12:44pm

It may have been mentioned before but this has happened a few times to me recently and several times in the past. It happens when there is only one enemy planet left, and you are the only one to own any other planets. If you then double tap one of your planets to select all, it then prevents you from selecting any other planet, or deselecting your selection. 

Essentially you're stuck and unless the other player surrenders you have to wait for them to slowly retake all your planets and you end up losing.

Yeah that glitch is terrible!

One guy said they were reporting me for teaming because the other guy was being an idiot and not surrendering :c

Yeah, I hate this bug too... mostly because I spent ages trying to make it happen and never could. It's impossible to fix a bug we can't reproduce ourselves. =(

nano try to play phil in multiplayer - let him take all of the planets, and as you float around have him double tap a planet. It should recreate the glitch

Happens every time without exception for me - if I control all 65 planets and double tap. (as in there's a floater)

Yes it happens to me too. Just double tap if you have 65 planets and there is one person flying. Like ziche said. It's not a fun bug because people take advantage of that, what could cause you the game.

Just confirmed it in a private server vs a bot.

Maybe it's a bug only specified for PC users or something? I heard maybe Phil and Nanno use Macs or something?

I definitely happens on iPad, and might be unique to iPad users.

I can't reproduce the bug on a PC, unless the bug really only happens when there's only one remaining enemy ship left. (I tested it with more enemy ships than that)

It's definitely not just with one ship. And I do believe it's only on iPad.

It's easy to recreate on an iPad.

I don't think it happens as easy to pc users (which would explain Phil's problem in recreating the glitch).

We have iPads, though, and we tried it with those. But I can try again.

I've not played enough on PC, only iPad. But I can reproduce it almost every time.

You can reproduce it against a bot too. That's probably the easiest way.
