Whenever I edit a Gold alien race and chose Exponent for a spawning method (Experience, credits, fighters, etc.), the editor just closes without an explanation. This initially worked just after I banged the server, but shortly afterwards, this bit of loveliness popped up.

Is this a known issue?

What version is this happening on?

If it's known to be a problem with the latest version (or recent), can you export a TWA file and email it to me? That way I can easily identify the cause.

Thanks!

I tested this on my server with a fresh stock gold game, and have confirmed that selecting option "<G> Exponent" will close the editor as described above in TWGS v2.13 / TW v3.27.

Ok, I'll repeat that here. I'm surprised I haven't had that reported yet if it's that easy. Crazy. I figured it must be data-specific.

Ok, that's fixed. Division by zero. I can't believe that was never reported and I never found it on my own. It crashes with default settings. Odd.
