SOC Loop Icon present after loop
I've played a couple campaigns where I enter into an SOC loop and play it; however, after the SOC loop is completed and I'm back into "normal" missions, the "Exit Loop" button is still present in the upper right corner of the briefing screen.  In most cases I'm still able to play the campaign normally with no game-breaking stuff happening.

Has anyone else had this problem happen where the "Exit Loop" button won't go away?  Most recently for me it happened while playing Derelict 3.7

Yeah, I think it's a bug that I haven't got around to fixing yet :(

Don't press the exit loop button when you're not in a loop :D

Do you think this will be fixed in the next official release (3.7.1 or something)?

I'd *like* to have it fixed before the next official release (3.7.2)...

It also happened in the campaign "Allied Forces".  That one had no gamebreaking problems as a result as far as I could tell.


This problem did give me a relatively minor problem with SOC stuff in Derelict (but I'll make a separate thread about that later).

I've noticed it in the FS2 main campaign, but I've never clicked it in case something bad happened.  :)
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.
