Bug - Straight Flush counted as just a Flush

posted by vorteks on - last edited - Viewed by 723 users

The Heavy was just given a much lower score than he should have.

Including his 2 cards, there were 6 clubs on the table - Jack, 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3. I don't remember which cards the heavy was holding, but the Jack wasn't one of them. He should have had a straight flush, using the 3,4,5,6,7 of clubs. But instead the game only recognized a flush, and it showed Jack, 7, 6, 5, 4.

I mean, he still won the hand, but this seems like a major bug.

    they count only the highest cards

  • @seibert999 said: they count only the highest cards

    No because then an ace would beat a straight of 2 3 4 5 6.
    This is a bug.

  • Maybe three was a spade. In only shows the cards briefly, so, it's easy to mix it up if you're using some weird decks.

    I have never even been able to make a straight flush (nor any of my opponents) so, I don't know if there is a bug or not.

  • I've seen a screenshot (pre-patch, but who knows if the patch did anything to fix it) showing the game registering a straight flush as a flush, so it's plausible.

    Um, no. They count the highest five-card hand that can be made with the seven cards. "Highest hand" doesn't mean "highest cards": A five-high straight flush beats an ace-high flush.

  • The only time I've seen a straight flush was the other day, when Tycho got one. (Oddly, Wilbur sounds less excited about it than he does about the four of a kind.)

    I've never seen a royal flush. Supposedly the characters have some special reactions to it. Anyone have a video of this? The only thing that's on Youtube is one of those stupid "waste your time" videos that proclaims to have five royal flushes in a row--a 1:420,000 chance--but is instead just fifteen minutes of the characters staring at the table.

    I take it you are not a monkey island fan?

    His name is Winslow.

  • XD at the above, although i never get straight flushes so i wouldn't know of this glitch.

    Oh for crap's sake, I can't believe I did that. :( (I blame my horrible tendency to mess up names. At least it was a W name that was vaguely close, unlike some of my complete mess-ups.)

  • This is still a bug.

    What happened:
    I was dealt the 5d, 6d. I have been trying for a straight flush and was well over everyone at the table.
    I believe Max bet ~5.5k preflop and Tycho called.
    As you can see, flop was 2d, 3d, Th.
    Max went all in. Tycho called with just change.
    As I was ~5% to get the straight flush, I called.
    Turn was Qh and river was 4d.

    Max was holding Tc, Jc.
    Tycho was holding Qc, Ad.

    As you can see, for whatever reason, it says "Flush" and the straight flush cards are counting down. (Could this be part of the problem?)

    While I still had the best hand and won, I did not get awarded the correct winning hand (e.g Flush instead of Straight Flush) and thus no Steam achievement credited (I did verify I was connected to Steam at the time as my friends list was visible).

  • I feel like this game is still on beta-testing.
    And we are the beta-testers.
