No worries, the updated link boots just fine now.

Did some very basic testing to see if I could proc the recruitment bug again on the new 4.12.16 link, but after 100 scheduled meetings (and more "whatever [turns away]" responses than I care to count) it seems like no pitches cause a crash any more. Tested in the Downtown apartments with a fresh, All-E founder on the no-music version.

Ive got a bug to report for the latest version. The Seattle condo landlord doesn't have an option for renting or canceling a room.
EDIT: After purchasing a room. There is no option to stop renting a room in any of the apartments or projects (this is in national LCS mode)

Also had issues with the loot piles left by dead enemies, namely there wasn't any loot in them. Upon killing an enemy the pile would drop as normal (placing a magenta "LOOT!" tile above the squad), but picking it up didn't add anything to the squad's inventory on-site, nor the inventory of their hideout post-mission. Doesn't seem related to method of death or npc type, as I've tried sneak attacks on Deathsquad officers, blasting security guards with a shotgun, even getting NPCs enlightened through music to punch and/or shoot their buddies. I also tried killing multiple enemy spawns on the same tile, in case it had something to do with tiles not getting updated right away, but nothing I tried seemed to work.
Fixed in 4.12.17

Ah, National LCS.  Fascinating features only half-implemented.  There is a lot to do there, I will investigate.

This is when you see properly done object-oriented programming at the start would have make the work easier.

Haha, true enough.
But that's why I'm here.  Turning legacy code into usable code is a valuable skill in computer science.  A skill I intend to master.

Anyone else having trouble getting their squads to switch to other safehouses? I can move to the homeless shelters and business fronts, but the option asking why is the squad here doesn't show up for the apartments.

Yes, I am as well. It's been a bug for a while now, the current workaround is to disband the squad, then use T to set new bases for the squadless, W wait a day, then re-make the squad.

Btw, thank you so much for keeping this game alive! I truly appreciate it!

Finally tracked down the bug.  A char was being cast into an int, then tested whether it was positive.  I don't really understand why this was the method chosen, but removing the cast fixed it.
"Why is the squad here?   (S)afe House, to cause (T)rouble, or (B)oth?" will now show up for apartments (that have been rented).

Son of a [pejorative].
My computer has a virus.

Downloads of LCS are on hold until I can reinstall my operating system.

Okay, got a new SSD, and a new copy of Windows 10.
There is no way LCS can possibly have a virus now.
Also, LCS looks weird on Windows 10.
I may have jumped the gun on this upgrade...

Would it be possible to add in an automatic reload mechanic (Liberals with empty guns reload automatically outside of combat, rather than only during combat?) or make reloading save the magazines (called clips by the game, as inaccurate as it is) if they're not empty? Nothing like reloading just so the guy carrying molotovs or shotguns or SMGs or whatever other low-capacity weapon can be ready for the next fight, only for the guy with the M249 to throw away his entire drum rather than swapping for a fresh one and keeping the old one in his inventory.

It's on the list.  # 13.

I'll include that in 4.12.20
I remember when I asked a friend the difference between a clip and a magazine.  "Clips are from WW2, we use magazines now" is my half-remembered recollection of the answer.
Then on the forums there was this debate about managing clips where the number of bullets for some specific guns were supposed to be 5, 6, and 7, and no one wanted to manage three different relatively prime numbers.  Then there was the thing about "speed-loaders" being a makeshift magazine used with revolvers.
It's all outside my area of expertise, though I find it fascinating to hear about.

Here's the plan:
4.12.20 will have automatic reloading outside combat for anyone who's current clip [sic] is empty (or uses a thrown weapon).

Later date: a base will contain raw ammunition, e.g. 25 45mm, 60 7.6239mm etc.  When a squad leaves their base, they leave with a certain number of clips each, corresponding to their weapon layout.  Half-used/unused clips will return to raw ammunition upon returning to base.  (Sadly, this breaks save compatibility, which is why I'm hesitant to do it.)

Latest date: Revamp of the inventory system.  Currently, unequipped weapons cannot be detected by metal detectors, because metal detectors only look through the inventory of individual squad members, rather than the squad itself.  I'm not sure how it should be done, just that it should be different.
