Bug: meltagun levelled up and did not receive an ability

There is no peace among the stars: the Imperium of Man is beset on all sides by all kinds of threats. Among them is the Orks, a barbaric and warlike xeno race. One of their fiercest leaders, Grukk Face-Rippa, leads his Red Waaagh! in the Sanctus Reach system...

No they didn't die. They showed as level 2 without any abilities. Later when they leveled up to 3 they did get one ability but never got the ability for level 2.

Yes, I have exactly the same bug. After third mission in Stormclaw campaign two of my meltagun squads levelled up but only one received an ability.
Now I don't know if I should continue playing as I don't want to lose an ability. Still I probably have to go on as it isn't going to be fixed any time soon.

From the beta 1.0.8 changelog:
• Level up/No Skill bug - a bug where units were not gaining abilities/skills on levelling up has been fixed.
Not that that necessarily means your specific bug is fixed of course. Plus it probably doesn't mean lost skills will suddenly appear.

For me the bug is still there. I have patched to 1.0.10 today but to no avail. One of two meltagun squads still doesn't get an ability it should (just to clarify: I'm finishing the mission from the save and the result is one squad always gets an ability while the other doesn't).
I guess I simply have to keep playing or maybe I should start the new game instead? Are the patches affecting the saves from the previous version or not?

I have a test save I can upload that 100% verifys this bug.. Landraider has 1500exp gained during this combat, if he doesn't land the killing blow (regardless of having his xp bar filled) he will not level.

Additionally really hoping for some more choice in upgrade paths, its a bummer to get mele upgrades on your ranged units and fire resistance on all your heavy units... I cant remember the last time I took flame damage anyways...

Hi guys,

At the moment if you are loading a save game from a previous version and that unit has already filled the XP bar then they will need to land the killing blow again or they wont get an ability, the abilities are actually picked during play at the point the unit fills the xp bar but not given until the report at the end.

Sorry about this, we will look at a hotfix that can deal with save games better.

Cheers,

Gordon.

Gordon the problem originated on a new campaign for the latest release, never loaded from a save* FYI but I reloaded the autosave from prior to the completion of the round to verify

Hi tekprimemia,

Would it be possible for me to get your save game to test this?

Cheers,

Gordon.

Here you go. The save files currently take on an ordered number instead of reflecting the name designated when creating the save* The forum wont allow .lsf to be uploaded, so I put it in my dropbox. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fad62hcvs18q0oh/9.LSF?dl=0

If you open an LSF file in a text editor it shows the display name at the very top of the file.

I have just encountered essentially the same problem. Just completed first mission of hour of the wolf. Took in 3 bolter packs who all collected enough xp to level up. Only 2 were shown leveling up in the mission completion report. The one not shown was available in the unit select screen for the next mission tagged as level 2 but with with no acquired ability.
