Got a couple hours testing in on a new FNV game this morning.
Was initially pleased -- as we were finishing up the "tutorial" with Sunny (which I always play through to get the extra ammo) the girls stopped me, each in turn notifying me that she was thirsty, but had a drink on hand.
The code fired.
Never happened again. Nor did the hunger state ever appear at all.
I know the code is valid... but I have no idea why it's failed this time.
Slack-ass pieces of shit actually drew a salary for coding this engine...
Anyway. Now I get the fun of running up diagnostic scripts, to figure out whether the counter isn't running, or the variable checks are stuck, or what.
From as long as it took to get the one successful appearance, I can tell you that their object scripts are not running every frame like they're supposed to -- the girls' timer started running before mine did, and it was still five solid minutes after I got the first dehydration notice before they did.
Once, just once, I would like this game to obey it's own goddamned rules.
So, bets are off for the inclusion of a working HC mode for NCCS in the near future, until I figure out what in the unholy fucking shit is going on this time.
