Empty strings. If you see such weird stuff empty strings are (tried to be) translated... As I see it's rank string. I saw warnings about ranks in another topic but I don't experience such a problem. Odie can you check your build?

Actually this is not odie's buil. My own compile. Only happened to me once and 2 of my soldiers where rookies and promoted to riflemen on this same mission (dunno if the same ones). Never seen it again, though.

Sorry then. Maybe an issue with the packaging / installer build scripts then. Could you check your medals.ufo file? If it's in the correct place if it have the rank names "_Rifleman" and so?

Well, all files I got straigh from SVN and did'nt changed them. I'll atach it just in case (renamed as .txt so forum will accept it).

However, I've noticed that when u hire any soldier, soldeir's rank is stated as "rifleman", but after first mission, the rookie strangely gets "promoted" to "riflemen" (wasn't he already a riflemen?). Makes me think just hired rokies have no rank at all before first mission. Maybe introducion a new rank "rookie" would solve this issue, as all hired soldiers with no missions would get a rank right from the begining (before any mission) or just assign the riflemen rank to all not yet hired soldiers.

Obs: No, I checked. the 2 rookies from that mission where not the same ones in hospital.
Obs 2: Even playing the exact same compile with no SVN updates, this never happened again.

It seemed aok to me.
Same as his file.

As for the issue he faced.... let me go home with today's latest built and see if its the same. :D

For the records, i did not see this in well, 2 wk's ago's built (where i last try looking at the hosp.... i rarer than rarely have ppl hurt.....)

PS: Anyone can tell me how to get hurt w/o getting killed for sure? i have such a bad knack to kill before being shot...... (And if i am surprised, i am dead. lol)
