Scientist cannot be hired?
« on: October 07, 2013, 02:53:53 am »
I just installed the latest Dev version("2.6") for the first time in months to try it out.

Maybe I'm missing something very simple about the new UI... but I cannot seem to hire new employees in this version.

Attached here is a screenshot of the scientist hire screen at my home base, where neither the HIRE nor the FIRE button reacted to my clicks. 

Of course, being the first base, there is already a complete laboratory in place, and there is a vacancy for 10 more employees. (30/40 default occupancy)

Is this a bug?

The new ui is not in a playable state. You should play 2.5-Dev for now.

On that topic -- for those of us who install/update through the nightly builds, are these still doing 2.5, or have they ported to 2.6 yet?

there is a stable version - which is in fact 2.5 now - we always have stable and master. but (there is always a but, no) this is currently broken.

http://ninex.info:8010/builders/mingw64-stable

as you can see here. I will fix that asap - and then you can download the stable snapshot as before the latest. The url will be http://ufoai.org/snapshots/ufoai-stable-win32.exe

but check the timestamp in
http://ufoai.org/snapshots/
before.

The snapshot link in your post, is it 2.5?  Because it says 2.4 when I install it.  The middle link, I mean.
