Solution: Units dissapearing bug

Postby Omroth » Tue Apr 20, 2010 9:01 am

Hey guys.

If you experience the some-what notorious "units dissapearing bug", please try the following solution:

press the 'h' key once

Please report back on your success with this.

Thanks,
Ian

This worked.

Dark disputed game. After beginning to assigning units orders, all of my other units vanished. After completing orders for the first unit. hitting h once made all of the others viable again.

I have a game where I can see enemy units, but not my own or any walls/buildings.

Pressing h just hides the enemy units. Game -95530

Seems to be constantly stuck on turn 0 despite both of us Priming

I'll try the H trick next time this happens. It was my first multi game. [-93228] The enemy's Rocket class disappeared and he ran right past my machine gunner.

Two of my three units disappeared during my last Dark Extermination match. 'h' by itself did nothing, but holding shift and pressing 'H' made them reappear.

I just played a Dark Disputed game (game 33328) where two of my four units disappeared at the start of turn 5. Pressing 'h' or 'shift-h' didn't have any effect.

Looks like my issue was probably not the same bug... someone told me that if your units are in the Disputed exit zone when it first appears, they will leave the map. The help file is ambiguous about how this works. I had thought they had to be carrying a square in order to be removed.

That's right - if your units are in the exit zone when the boxes appear or on any turn after that they'll escape, regardless of whether they're carrying boxes. It isn't what you'd expect and I'm not sure if it's intended behaviour but for now you just need to plan around it. You can be in the exit zones before the boxes appear without a problem.
