Putting items in the ARUC backpack often results in those items being permanently deleted. Sometimes it's as simple as picking up the backpack in the Strategic screen and setting it back down on the same merc. Other times you can drop it during battle (Shift + cool and try to pick it up again with Ctrl + Shift + F, which often fails to pick up backpacks, and then the items are deleted. Still, there are other ways: pick up an ARUC backpack that has a blue dot from the Inventory pane, place it on a merc, and the blue dot disappears along with whatever items the ARUC swallowed.

Has anyone else experienced this bug?

Around build 8400 I fixed a bug that would randomly delete the contents of all not currently worn LBE items.

It would manifest after dropping a filled LBE item in sector inventory, closing and reopening the inventory then picking up the LBE (and IIRC also equipping it). At that point, when the sector inventory was closed, the game would for some reason think the LBE was still in the sector and look for its contents (which would have been transferred to the merc by now) there, then panic and reinitialize the entire LBE contents list. That includes LBE held in hands, backpacks and stored inside vehicles. The LBE items themselves are not updated, so they will still show the blue star but their contents are likely gone, and whenever the game encounters a LBE item with missing contents it will again forget all other items' contents. Once this starts happening, placing new filled LBE items in sector inventory will make their contents appear in the bugged LBE items.

A possible way of stopping this from happening is to empty all not currently worn LBE items, which should ensure there's no "corrupted" LBE items in the game that would trigger the bug.

The latest SCI can be found here. Just make sure it's compatible with the mod you are using (if you are using a mod).

Thanks! The bug still exists in ja2_7609en+AI_r357.exe. I'm guessing I need the newest release.

The fix was added in r446, so if you want to play with stable 7609, it's better to update to actual r513.
