hideous code hell
Today has been no fun. pouring over tons of numbers trying to work out why the loaded in data differs from the pre-saved data. its been pretty grim. tracked down a number of bugs though, one where the values were not displayed correctly because they didn't allow for ministerial competence, another where the initial values of policies effects were not being set up correctly. Slow but sure progress anyway. at least you can happily save and load games and the game you load looks vaguely like the one you saved. that's a start anyway!
