Path finding has become very hit and miss when other actors are in the way. This is especially apparent when in some of the narrow corridors on the first map screen. For example in one corridor that's wide enough for 2-3 characters to stand abreast trying to get one to move past another that is not at the very edge of the corridor is next to impossible.

    We most likely fixed this yesterday.

    I'm currently playing about with svn revision 5058. I'm not seeing the problem as much but there are still times when the actors get stuck and can't work out how to get past each other.

    Possibly another obscure 64-bit issue?

    The most common times I've seen this happen is if the character to move has another character right next to them in the same direction that you want to move.

    example

    Xx *

    where X is the character to be moved, x is a character right next to the charachter to be moved and * is the targeted place to move to. In this situation it's very common for a path to not be found.

    Xx

    *

    Using the same symbols as above. In this situation a path would more than likely be found.

    I'll have another fiddle this weekend with the latest svn revision.

    Sometimes actors get stuck on doors (moving in, but cannot move away short of using a ctrl-j cheatkey). This would break gameplay for a normal user. Still don't know how to fix all these.
