Wow, thanks for fixing.

I was pretty sure this bug would be in the game forever (like some others).

The pulsar is a bow with a quiver. The reloading animation for this bow includes the player filling the five-arrow quiver, one arrow at a time, before nocking an arrow to shoot. This is a very slow animation but it's usually not a problem since you reload the quiver before animals are coming in. This bug was causing the full quiver-filling reload animation to occur whenever the player switched from the bow to an item and back to the bow. So even if you had just loaded the quiver moments before, the quiver would reload again forcing you to watch the long animation before you could shoot. The problem is when you have a trophy animal in front of you and you go to grab your bow, knowing it's already loaded and ready to go, and being greeted with a 10 second animation instead of having the option to shoot right away. This was causing people to lose trophy animals since the animal would often spook in the ridiculous amount of time it would take to, unnecessarily, reload the whole quiver and nock an arrow again.

This bug fix hopefully put an end to the unexpected reloading of the quiver after switching to other items.
