[Dominik] [0.12.22] [for 0.17] Train Manual mode via Script

Post by Cbrad24 »

Changing a train to manual mode via script while the UI is open means that the Manual Start/Stop button doesn't resync until you Close/Re-open the UI.

I have created a mini-mod to demonstrate, but I won't be surprised if this is added to the 0.13 changes.
trainmanual_minimod_1.0.0.zip
Small mod that constantly changes any locomotive to manual while in the driver seat.

Steps to reproduce:
  • 1. Add mod
    2. Hop into any locomotive
    3. Open Train UI
    4. Set to automatic
    5. Mod sets to manual, doesn't update button
    6. Close UI, Open again and button is in manual

This is a general problem with all, or most GUIs.
GUIs don't listen to game state changes because of the problems that will be caused by the multiplayer latency.

Waiting for kovarex to move this somewhere.

I think that this one is not hard to solve, but it will have to wait for 0.13 as the gui is redesigned there and I don't want to do double work.

We may look into these kinds of "bugs" in the future but right now this is how it works.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Okey, fixed, but by a new gui update system that will be in 0.17.
