Merchant Selling Losing Money
« on: July 21, 2019, 04:43:09 PM »
Name:
Merchant Selling Losing Money

Where:
This has just occurred to me at the Vardo Trading Wagon in the Mist Camp, since that is where I sell.

When:
The bug has occurred several times at the Vardo trader, at least three times that I remember specifically. I have however traded without the bug occurring. I have traded with and without bardsong, and had the bug occur in both occasions. I believe the last time it occurred was yesterday, around 11 pm UTC. I only noticed the bug maybe three days ago.

What:
The bug that occurs is when selling an item of high value, the item will say it is worth, say 1025 coin, but when I sell it, I only receive 750 coin. I have a screenshot from the second time it occurred to me. In the first Screenshot, you can see I am going to sell a "Death's Touch" for 1162. I also have 5907 fang.
Spoiler: show

In the second Screenshot you can see the "Death's Touch" sold for 750 coin, and that is how much coin I got from the transaction. So I now have 6657 fang, an increase of just 750.
Spoiler: show


The next time I sell, and I have items that sell for over 750, I will try doing the @debug command before and after selling? If anyone thinks it will help.

I would also like to make a note, that the prices of items under 750 were not reduced, but sold for the price listed when highlighting them.

Recreate:
I have a 37 appraise with my gear. That is the amulet of souk , the unadorned rings, and the merchant gloves. I have all three trader's feats, and I have skill focus (appraise). I have had the bug with barsong played, and I have had it without playing bardsong.

Ideas:
I'm worried it may have something to do with a cap I seem to have. I'm worried my feats may be glitched? I know of another merchant who had the feats, but three points less in appraise then me, who could sell amulets of Kali for 40 fang, while I seem to only be able to get it to 34? It may have nothing to do with it, but I thought I would put that in.

As a side note with this trader, his selling limit is normally 750 as a base level before appraise checks do their +/- and increase that limit, if that helps at all with debugging.

I've noticed this issue as well... interestingly, it seems to happen after someone else accesses the trader as well, I think. It's happened twice to me, so I'm not sure if that's truly a contributing factor... But if I close the shop window and reaccess it through conversation with the merchant, it fixes it.

I have a character with 1 or 2 final appraise that was able to sell an item to him for over 1000.

The chat said I received that coin amount and nothing was amiss.

But this was months ago, maybe a new bug has appeared.

Thank you, I will try that. I'll just do it every time I access the merchant, to be certain.

Good catch but yeah, it seems to be due to other people using the merchant after you. There's no way in NwN right now to set a merchant's cap for only one character.
