Hi, found a little bug with a double scene, Tom entered a second time into the laboratory after losing the boss fight with Luke.
Tom didn't trust him, Tom and Helen were no lovers, Luke spent the night with Sarah and killed her.
Scenes 0, 2-4, 6, 5, 7-12, 14, 15, 17, 19-25, 27, 28, 31, 30, 32, 34, 32, 37-39

Regarding the endings, I think I always get the Mars ending first and then earth, but will check it.

I find it strange that Tanya always tries to get Jason to release the virus, I would understand it if she always takes the tough choices, offering to kill for Jason, no cover story, lying to Tina and Rob, but not when even Jason thinks she is too soft. Maybe some further text when she witnesses how selfish and uncaring everyone is (Lucas Walker, Meier, Julia, the Prof) and the humans don't deserve to live (because no one tries to change it) could make it more believable like Luke on Mars when he speaks about the rotten Martians.

The bug happened with the new version or the previous one ?
edit: nevermind I check two times for that fight indeed, need to make sure it doesn't happen twice :lol:

Uploaded 0.9.5 that makes sure Tom/Luke boss fight happens only once, and added a line to Tanya trying to explain why she's disgusted by humans and wants to punish them :)

I loaded a game saved with 9.4 in Sarah's flat and continued it in 9.5. (Don't know if this could effect anything)
Luke didn't joined Sarah and let her steal 'his' data. Tom didn't trust Luke and in the Boss Fight, if you choose 'You're not a murderer' Luke speaks as if he killed Sarah. Even after winning with Tom, Luke explains he killed Sarah.
I got 'Public Execution' after Luke's suicide and after that 'Mysterious woman', Mars first and then Earth ending and 'Lost in Space'.
Scenes 0, 2-4, 6, 5, 7-12, 14, 15, 17, 19-25, 27, 28, 30, 31, 34, 32, 37-39

edit: I think it's ok to have Mars ending first and then Earth ending

Ah weird, will take a look. But well yes, if the endings fit, even if the order is not the correct/expected one I think is not a big problem as you said :)

Ah I found out the point. I think originally that scene was written thinking that it would happen ONLY if Luke killed Sarah but as testing showed, that's not always the case (and changing this now would lead to a new chain of conditions/bugs).
So what I've done is do some checks through that scene and fix the texts accordingly if Luke killed Sarah or not (he would still be quite shocked even if he didn't, considering what he was about to do).
Version 0.9.6 coming with that change only :)

See here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2956&p=16327#p16266
Ok definitely need to change that and give more info/tips in-game, since seems that lots of people have problems with it :)
