I am going to have to delay the release a bit. Bugs are appearing left and right. I now do have a bug that never appeared before, though, which crashes when I try to seduce Vivian Pines (odd, it used to work...).
Edit, part 1: the Science, Computers, and Religion skills affect the odds of availing yourself of a secret mission. Each mission has a corresponding skill, and if any liberals are deemed fit then they can be sent. Liberals without the skill won't be deemed fit. Success or failure is then determined based on the skill itself, but it is dangerous.
I don't know why it's crashing, but lots of other things are crashing that didn't used to, so we'll see what happens. You can try sending me the save file and I will try to replicate the error.
Edit, part 2: all right, somebody who understands C++ better than me, help me out here: I am encountering a bug where the TV leader can be added to a date, but if she then leaves the date and is not liberalized, her data get scrambled. I believe it has to do with the delete_and_remove function in the date class when the date is deleted, but the UniqueCreature shouldn't be. Does this problem also exist with presidents and CEOs?
Edit, part 3: I have found and fixed one bug that prevented the TV leader from being able to be recruited at all while on vacation in single-city mode. I have discovered another bug - this is probably the bug that causes Taberone's game to crash when visiting Vivian Pines in her bed. What happens is that Vivian's data gets scrambled somehow after anything happens to her (in my case, I loveslaved her, then went back to her house after she had been loveslaved). However something similar happens if her house is closed down for some reason, e.g. by doing liberal biodiversity conservation on the trees in her front yard (which I should probably remove as that's not the point, but anything that closes down her house can have the same effect).
Edit, part 4: The bug causing the game to crash upon arriving at Vivian Pines' bed is a bug in the saving and loading of the game. Thus if you play the game without saving, it works properly, but data get scrambled during the save. I am working on fixing it now.
Edit, part 5: Bug found. The game was saving the data properly, but not loading the html script into variables properly. I also found out what you meant by the game crashing when you attack perusers during athletic activities - I assume you only mean gang members, because it works just fine if I use cops. I will work on fixing that now.
Edit, part 6: Bug found - the game is expecting there to be a news story about the gang member being shot, but of course there isn't one because the attackers are gangbangers, not cops. I will make a news story for this, but will do it tomorrow when I am not tired.
