Problem with smelting ores in 0.40.17
« on: November 20, 2014, 07:07:40 am »

The problem is it doesn't seem to want to let me do it. The only options in the smelter are for the alloys. I tried re-extracting DF then re-DLing it and neither worked. I even tried taking a save from .16 that was find and even it didn't work. Does anyone else have this problem with 40.17?

So it seems I accidentally put my canteen in my wheelbarrow and didn't notice... and then I got really thirsty... so right before going to sleep I go to take a swig from my canteen and... end up snorting a line of low-grade meth.

Definitely present, yes. Smelters can only do the "reactions" and lost all "smelt ore" options. Should be something in the executable, too, since it afflicts both new forts and old saves ported over.

Well that is one person besides me so at least I am not alone. One more and I will end up having to go and report it if no one else has yet.

Bronze for weapons and armour, and trade allows directly from or. The game is still playable, but very frustrating.

I have made a bug report. Yes the game is technically playable as you can still make bronze and get things in trade it is a serious problem if you want to use anything that isn't a alloy.

When someone does make a bug report, PLEASE post a save, people seem to keep forgetting that it's a good idea.......

I suspect that Toady One is going to have to hotfix this one.

Update: the issue can be worked around by job orders via the manager. The manager screen still lists ore-smelting jobs and they get properly assigned to smelters and executed. This is in a copy of .40.17 extracted over an older installation, in case that matters.

With a functional workaround, i find the new version is still worth upgrading to - stressed dwarfs will now de-stress in a reasonable time-frame if they don't get anything new to worry about. And hopefully the "see one kea fly overhead, get a dozen "must attack" bad thoughts, don't attack the kea" issue has been fixed.

Another note added to the bug report about it working through the manager and the linux version appearing to work fine. If we can get more linux users in confirming that it works for them that would be splendid.
