Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Choo Choo Survivor » Fixing Try Again Button bug

Hello Choo Choo Engineers,

A Choo Choo Engineer found a bug where upon pressing the Try Again button all of their progress was deleted. Luckily they were a new player to the game and I hope this hasn’t happened to anyone else. I made a minor edit to the code that delays a few lines of code where I have to read data from the save file after having accessed the save file to write data to the file (this is all called when the player loses a game). I think by adding the delay in reading data from the save file it will greatly reduce the likelihood of save file data being deleted. I think some aspects of code are dependent on computer hardware and most players including myself will never experience the bug.

Keep up the good work in reporting the bugs and sorry for the inconvenience. Let me know if you experience problems and I’ll try to figure them out and fix them.
