    I tried using the stormy start and have not been able to change flags except by talking to officers, when I try to change flags by the interface, it does not allow it. Am I doing something wrong?

    EDIT: I'm an idiot, it I would have searched properly, I would have found this thread:
    <a href="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=8298&hl=stormy+start" target="_blank">http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/index.php...hl=stormy+start</a>

    Sorry about that.

    That bug will be fixed in the next beta. I found why that happened and fixed it. I tested the fix and it works fine now. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":yes" border="0" alt="yes.gif" />

    Sorry about making a topic without researching it properly, Pieter. If I would have searched a little more, I would have found that other topic earlier. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mybad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":facepalm" border="0" alt="mybad.gif" />

    I don't care. I'm always happy to help. Even if I gave the same help before. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dunno.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shrug" border="0" alt="dunno.gif" />

    It's good to have people finding these kind of modder's oversights. This bug, for example, wasn't a bug per-se, but simply the modder forgot the case of the Stormy Start and forgot to re-enable the flag changing for stormy starts.

    What about: You wait one more hour, then download the next Build 13 Beta version. I have a new version just about done. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

    Ahoy Pieter,

    I just started playing Beta 2 and noticed that I couldn't by bullets from vendors or merchants again. That had been fixed.

    BTW is this the right thread to post this kind of thing in?

    Pieter, what this 2 MB file of Beta 2 corrects or adds or changes? Could I applied it into my current Beta 1 version without starting new game? <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mybad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":facepalm" border="0" alt="mybad.gif" />

    No, I believe you will have to restart your game (at least I had to) It fixes a lot of minor bugs such as the flags mod with stormy start.

    My crew use firearms constantly, so if the code changes I made are integrated into the build correctly, your crew should be using firearms. I don't know if the changes made it into the code.

    <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/poet.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":hmm" border="0" alt="poet.gif" /> I'm still playing Beta 1 and I never had a problem with the
    crew not using firearms! maybe your missing a setting in
    BuildSettings.h? I have my ammosettings turned off.
    Other wise you have to keep an eye on you weaponslocker!

    Noise,

    I did not have crew using firearms in first beta. I play with the ammo mode on and it the crew used firearms prior to the beta.

    Hook, I know you fixed this after the first beta, I don't think that fix in the second beta. Pieter?

    I thought I did add that crew using guns on boardings fix. Just to be sure, can you send me all your fixed files again, Hook?

    Build 13 Beta 2 contains several fixes, most notably to the new islands. It does require a new game being started.
