hay so i would like to make a fallow up post to this one that fallows the same lines, the problem i encountered above persists to 1.6.2 beta and ive done some testing of my own. i used cheats to see the full inventory of the game and looked and noticed that no a single generic two handed polearm had the couched lance property, meaning ether it was |two handed| no couch or |one handed| |two handed| |couch lance|. meaning with generic items given in the game the problem i ran into would never happen. the only way to do this was through crafting, some shafts would give it the |one handed| |two handed| Couched lance| properties, and some heads require two hands, thus removing the |one handed| property (such heads as the Warrazor head does this). what this does it it makes a exclusively |two handed| weapon with the |couched lance| ability, a combination that doesn't exist in the game normally. i think that due to this being the only way to get those two properties together and alone, it interferes with the way couched lance was programed to work and the game gets confused. i will be sending in a new save file (i suspect i sent in the wrong one) alone with this post. hopefully this helps.
