I had a couple of crashes trying to play the new introductory puzzles. Oddly, in both cases, the client crashed again at startup (one or more times), but then started successfully. Maybe an issue in post-crash cleanup (for example, uploading debug.txt)?

[15:10] downloading the "experimental" release
[15:18] ah, malheurs
[15:18] ERROR: Can't create a polymer bond after residue 4 due to incompatible type: LYS:CtermProteinFull
[15:18] ERROR:: Exit from: ..\..\..\source\src\core\conformation\Conformation.cc line: 850
[15:20] interesting, crashed twice on startup, third time managed to open new introductory puzzle
[15:21] puzzle 9-1, intro to drug design
[15:58] good feedback
[17:38] second introductory puzzle (9-2?) crashed
[17:38] ERROR: ERROR: The internal coordinates of ResidueType 'LG_5002' depend on a missing atom!
[17:38] ERROR:: Exit from: ..\..\..\source\src\core\chemical\ResidueType.cc line: 2762
[17:43] it crashed again on startup, then started OK
[17:45] tip: in ligand design mode, repeated left-clicking can select multiple atoms (kind of like shift-click in other contexts)
[17:46] to clear the selected atoms, right-click on the ligand
[17:46] "left" and "right" may vary depending on your locale and frame of reference
[17:50] in 9-2, the instructions are not super clear on which one the methyl carbon is, and which ring of six you should click on
[17:51] introductory puzzle 9-3: there is no introductory puzzle 9-3
[17:54] introductory puzzle 9-4: didn't really understand what I was supposed to do, but wiggle dispatched it...works for me I guess

Also, on puzzle 9-2, wiggle alone did reach the target score. Shake was also needed.

As others noted, I'm not seeing a puzzle under "experimental", just three tutorials.

For everyone who is using Windows. There is a bug that occurs anytime you exit the game and start it again (sometimes, it appears to be random for me). The error has different variations in the log file, but it will be some variation of this:

ERROR: Can't create a polymer bond after residue 15 due to incompatible type: ARG:CtermProteinFull
ERROR:: Exit from: ..\..\..\source\src\core\conformation\Conformation.cc line: 850

Where ARG will be some other amino acid. Until the new version of Windows comes out (should be later today), you can get around this error by deleting all the *.ir_puzzle files, puzzle folder, and undo folder in your main Foldit install directory. For me, that is in C:\Foldit Experimental\.

There shouldn't be this error in OSX or Linux builds.

I am in the process of getting an update that should clear up this error.
