FFOR v1.1.6: Unable to save lists

PostTue Jan 20, 2015 12:07 am

Hi there,

First off, Buhallin - thank you for such an amazing program in FFoR. This thing has been with me since I started playing DZC 18 months ago and I literally have never made a list without it. It's fantastic!

Ran into a little issue though: I'm running Win7 64 bit, and have discovered with the new Famous Commanders update that, while I can access any lists I created in Version 1.1.5, I can no longer save new lists in 1.1.6. I have tried both the Save and Save as New commands to no avail. Even when I've Saved as New, then hit Save again, when I go to close the list I get a dialog box offering a chance to Save, which doesn't work. Any idea if my lists are saving elsewhere, or are they simple not saving at all?

Yeah, I ran into the same problem, and I described it in detail in the "Famous commanders are here!" Thread.

The problem isn't with v1.1.6 files being saved, as I can create new ones and Saved As ones from older lists and still open them later. The problem I found is that when you add a Famous Commander, then you're unable to close that file cleanly and/or re-open it.

Like I said, details of my testing are in the FCs thread...

Downloaded the new version. Unfortunately, I cannot open ANY saved roster (CTRL+O or with the folder button), whether with Famous Commanders or without :?

All my list are unavailable too. In fact the "open army" buttoms do not appear to work.

Okay, now THAT was working.

Going to be late getting home tonight, but will get it fixed tonight one way or another.

Thanks, Boss.

I'll check tomorrow morning for a post from you after my long Wednesday morning meeting. (I've got to drop off the VPN to get your updates, and can't do that with an IP phone...)

Best of luck!

Problem should be fixed and updated, but (as the lack of catching this in my testing showed) I didn't have the problem before this went out, so I'm not 100% sure I got it. I think I got it, but, we'll see :)

Version 1.1.8 has been posted, with my apologies for the failures.

Thank you, at least be assured that now it works (at least for me).

Whew. Thanks for the report - I hate it when I let big issues like that sneak through. My apologies again for the problems.
