Modded Mechs with own models / Double refit problem[edit | edit source]

Access the Marauder's (or any other modded into mech) refit screen but the refit overlay (which shows the hardpoints where you drag components onto/off the mech) will not close when work is confirmed or canceled.

For example, when I refit the mech by, say, adding a heat sink and removing an ammo bin and click confirm, the background changes from the Marauder refit screen to the mech bays but the overlay remains, including the confirmation dialog. Each subsequent click of confirm debits my available funds by the cost of the work I had requested.

If I try and cancel the refit, the background changes from the Marauder refit screen to the mech bays but again, the refit overlay remains.

When the overlay persists, it prevents me from navigating and interacting with other those screens I am able to reach and the only option is to reload.

Possible Fix -

  • Fix is known, only it needs to be re-ported the mech models themselves to make them as issue free as possible.

Workaround -

  • Click the confirmation screen once, and on the 2nd confirmation screen or subsequent screens you can cancel them with no problems (It prevents double stacking with double price of refitting/repairs).

0 Part Syndrome[edit | edit source]

After collecting all required parts to assemble a Mech, the Mech shows 0 parts, and is unable to be assembled

Possible Fix

  • Still investigating

Work Around

  • First, change your mech assembly to a higher value in the options under game settings and difficulty.
  • Now Save and Quit to Desktop.
  • Uninstall RogueTech.
  • Validate your installation.
  • Reinstall the LATEST VERSION of RT.
  • Load your save.
  • Enter a mission.
  • Complete mission with salvage (doesn't matter what it is but grabbing any mech part should work)
  • After mission go back into settings and change to desired mech parts.
  • Save and Quit to desktop.
  • Reload game.

Steel Beast Crab (FP) - Load failing/Shop breaking/Save game breaking[edit | edit source]

Selling bug from Steel Beast Crab.

The Steel Beast its known to cause problems with RogueTech (and probably other mods). This due to some problems with filenames for that particular mech (existing 2 versions of it, and one with broken formatting within the file) which can cause multiple problems.

Note this is a vanilla problem, if its not fixed, it will probably be forever present (since even having a file replacing it may cause RT to not load, confirmed, one of the modders wasted 16 hours figuring out what was preventing RT to load for him, and it was this).

But the relevant part for this, is to just NOT LOOT IT AT ALL!

Try to evade it like the plague, since it will prevent you from selling anything, and the worst case scenario, save game game corruption.

Pilot Skills[edit | edit source]

Bug when using the pilot skills Warlord and Multi-Target: When you first activate Warlord, Multi-Target is on a 1-turn cool-down, so you can't use it with Warlord. However, when you first activate Multi-Target and then Warlord, you actually can use Multi-Target with Warlord (it still shows the 1-turn cool-down timer, but the skill is still selected).

Percentage Bonus Equipment[edit | edit source]

Equipment that has a percentage bonus, needs to be loaded after the flat bonus equipment due to how the calculations are made.

First all the flat bonus are calculated and only then are the percentage bonus calculated.

No Bonus Starting Gear[edit | edit source]

No bonus starting gear, instead RandomStart gives you a bit better mechs (and heavier) on game start.

Reserves Spawn NPE[edit | edit source]

When reserves spawn, they don't necessarily get OnRoundBeing invoked. This causes NPEs (NullPointException) in the lookup of ActorInit. Protect the ActorInit fetch.



Save Game loading failure[edit | edit source]

Loading a save without restarting the game may fail.

Priority Contracts Failing to load[edit | edit source]

Priority contracts randomly fail to load.

Minefields, Melle attack, and Lethal Damage[edit | edit source]

A short slowdown and hang when meleed through a minefield and taking lethal damage.


None currently.


Its being worked on currently.
