Issue with player character's 'Activity' when reloading

Postby tsitsitsipas » 29 Jul 2021, 01:39

I've noticed a bug that happens when you reload a save multiple times in your player character's 'Activity' page (the page where you see his prize money and tournament results). Basically, if you keep reloading a save file, it messes up the player's tournament history and ranking points. I think this only happens with your player character and not the AI profiles, but it can screw with the player character's ranking as tournament entries end up being duplicated multiple times or missing (I'll attach images below, but in my example my ranking had both jumped and dropped several hundred spots because of the glitch). This is fixed when restarting the game and reloading again for the first time, so I don't think it is permanently damaging the saves aside from anything that happens with your recorded rank and allowing/preventing you to qualify for tournaments that you shouldn't/should be able to, but I think it happens every time I load a save file with 100% reproducibility.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make a character
2. Play several tournaments for a few weeks in a row
3. Reload any save file multiple times in a row

Reloading after immediately starting game:

After a few reloads (some entries are missing):

After a few more reloads (many entries are duplicated and wrong):

After one more reload:

Sorry for not attaching save file as I used a friend's name as a joke and would rather not reveal that. Thanks!

Hello,

this looks indeed very bugged. Could you send me a Bug Report just after have loaded that saved game ? (HowTo => topic19-4589.php )

I was able to replicate the bug off a fresh save, will send you a bug report, no mods or edits to Tennis.ini were made. My guess it that the issue happens when your character participates in 2 events in one week (main draw and qualifying draw for another event), and the reloading messes up when determining what to show on the activity screen. I wasn't able to replicate the bug while starting rank 10 and only participating in main draws, but was able to replicate it when starting rank 1000 and participating in both qualifying and main draws within the same week.

I got your Bug Report and you were right : the activity was getting slowly destroyed reload after reload, but only when you had 2 tournaments on the same week.

It'll be fixed for the next update (coming in a while if there's no emergency bug to fix), thanks to your detailed report ! :yes:
