I was very, very excited which only made my disappointment very, very noticeable when said patch didn't affect saved games, or take care of the SHIV blocking the doorway bug. What's a game addict to do? Why, complain about it in a post and then start a new game, of course. I have, for the record, found out how the bug works, exactly:
If you park the shiv by the door and then open it with one of your troops, the SHIV will forever block the door even if you move it back and away. You must send your troops through first or you're screwed. If you are playing Ironman, well, you're just screwed, like I was. It doesn't seem to mater if the SHIV is destroyed or not.
The latest patch has not, then, fixed all the bugs or made the game fully playable on Ironman as far as I'm concerned. I did try, really I did, but on my second mission a terrain bug which made me select the wrong end-point on my soldiers move saw him without any cover and quickly killed. The thing about me is, I hate to lose, especially if it's to bugs and not AI cleverness. I'm happy to play on Classic level but I could not abide losing a game I put hours into to a bug later in the game. I would rage like you wouldn't believe and I can't handle that kind of stress at the moment. I want to relax and stomp some AI noobs, not stress out and thus, I need to be able to re-load.
In the meantime I'll happily watch Thade and his battle against the Enemy Unknown in Classic Ironman.
