    I would like to finish what I started.

    Some time ago I mentioned a problem with remembering selected perks.
    In this thread: http://forums.empiresmod.com/showthread.php?p=498008

    Quoting from that thread:

    So I tryed reproducing and it worked perfectly.
    The remembered perk is simply not gonna be selected until you click on accept in your class menu, no matter how many times you die.
    So you simply always have a perk in class menu looking like selected, but its not. Until you by yourself click on "Accept".

    Rather very confusing.
    And weird that nobody noticed, unless it only happens to me.


    Here is a video: (mouse is not shown in the video, forgot to uncheck hide mouse in dxtory)

    Also, it seems to happen EVERY TIME.

    Anyway, I was testing on simply creating the server, spawning, entering "sv_cheats 1; emp_increase_rank", selecting second perk, restarting server and doing the same, killing myself and trying if the remembered perk worked and it didnt as you can see in the video. I even double died.

    Conclusion would be, that its better to not have it selected at all, rather than it looking like selected but its not, until you press accept.

    If its not only happening for me.

    Can confirm that this is the case.

    Anyway, does nobody cares about this one?

    Remembering perks is very much useless with this happening.
    And is only doing the opposite, which is confuse.

    I would literally prefer removing this "remember" feature.
    Or atleast make it show when the perk is REALLY inactive.

    Seems like this bug is now back with some of the recent updates.

    Iam guessing its because of this.
    I also noticed something odd about recycling your turrets when u got 2 of them.
    Not sure how it happened, but I recycled one of my 2 turrets and then I was unable to recycle the other one, unless I built the second one...and then I could recycle it.

    Got a vid of both things, will upload it soon.

    But here is the old video from the main post of this thread showing the remembering bug.

    Thanks a lot for the report about the skill bug. This should be fixed in the next release. I wasn't able to reproduce the recycling issues though.

    Video link: youtube.com/watch?v=6v537QNgAXg&
    Or embed:

    But I didnt catch what might have caused it.
    I just know I was pushing up with constantly building and recycling 2 turrets.
    Mostly: build one, build another, then recycle one, build one further, recycle other one, build it further....you know what I mean.
    Or sometimes: Recycle both. And build them.

    I will keep an eye on this bug and try to notice what might be causing it.
