Hi all, playing my first game of JA2 and I've come across a weird problem with the BR Recent Shipments page. The list of pending shipments shows only the newest order; other orders on subsequent lines can still be clicked on to show what's in the order, but can't be seen, just as though they'd been printed in black text on the black background. Yet when I first started playing, all pending orders were visible.

I'm playing JA2 Gold, version 1.12, no mods or patches applied. In game, I've taken Drassen, Cambria, Chitzena and Alma. I noticed that BR just started selling Spectra armour - could I have passed some milestone that triggered better goods from BR as well as this sudden bug? And does anyone know if I can make the text visible again?

I was at about day 200 (I'd set my custom merc training at the start, hence 200!), at experienced level. I've started a new game, and the pending page is displaying fine again, so far. Perhaps the shipments pending page can't display day numbers over a certain level without this happening.

I just found what triggers this problem - it's escorting the tourists to Drassen. John says he'll send you the Automags, and the shipments page goes haywire. The game must consider the guns to be a delivery and tries to hide that shipment from the player, but doesn't quite pull it off, maybe?

So does it clear up once the "special" shipment arrives?

No, it appears to be permanent once it starts. Nothing seems to clear this bug (like letting all pending shipments arrive before ordering again.) Start a new game though and the shipments page is normal, until you rescue the tourists. I'll just leave the tourists alone - deal with it that way.

That's the wrong way around imho. Do rescue the tourists as everybody involved stands a good chance of levelling up. Pending deliveries is not important at all. Just don't look at it. It doesn't affect gameplay whilst going up a level most certainly does.

Huh? You don't gain XP toward levelling from doing this, just cash and some guns.

Perhaps it depends on how close your merc's are to going up when you rescue them. In my case no-one went up a level when I reached the airport - I just got money, and was sent the guns of course.

Drat and thrice drat - the bug just appeared on day 139. I don't know what triggered it this time. But now there's no reason to avoid the tourists!
