It's back. No idea what happened, but i am blaming it on Discord.

RE: creep.upgradeController() == OK
Ghodium hydride and its OH/X later boosts can increase how much 'upgrade' you do, without increasing energy cost. So 'maybe' if you had a 14W single creep w/ a boost it could go over the 15 cap? That might be what was meant by the increased limit, as smokeman said, (and noted by effect in the RCL 8 snippet there) power-creeps can increase this limit.
The 15 e/t cap is strictly on the amount of energy put into the controller, before any applied boosts. So if you're putting 14 e/t with boosts on one creep, you can only put in additional 1 e/t regardless of boosts.
And yes, there are now power creeps that can raise this cap.
Side question: How do i underline?
You can't underline in markdown (which is what the forum uses).
Steam client keeps on crashing to desktop
Which shard is affected?
Client just closes itself at random. No error or debug log fund.
It crashes sometimes at map, sometimes in room view. But much more often in room view or when switching/loading rooms.
What should have happened?
It should not crash.
How can we reproduce this?
Idk. Play the game and see if it crashes?
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1 CPU: Intel i5-2500K GFX: AMD R9 580 8G
All drivers up to date. Nothing else causes me any issues, just Screeps. The game is unplayable atm.
RE: Server issues
@Orlet enjoys making his creeps live a very long time. A very long time. He has some that were spawned in 2018.
Currently only 9 left from 2018. Lost over 3/4ths of my old bois to the tombstone
.withdrawbug a few months back (Dec 2019). Was a very sad day.
As of this moment, memorial wall on Shard 1 stands at 126 entries. They all will be remembered.
RE: Steam client "no hardware acceleration available"
Yes. Outside of the fact that it has nearly killed my windows installation (something went sideways, very badly), nothing has changed. Screeps still occasionally drops into non-accelerated mode upon loading a room, and settings say "no hardware acceleration available". Despite everything else on system running fine.
Steam client "no hardware acceleration available"
Ever since the latest update my steam client would often go blank and just say "no hardware acceleration available" in the settings gear until I restart it, then everything is fine again (until next time it does that). If I exit to map and return to any room it'll be with the simple renderer.
What's up with that?
