Display Issue - Bastien has +1 to assault.

The numbers are correct, but his +1 is not being shown

Well, that would be a good thing to show in the details!

Hi Semaj,
thanks for the helpful screenshots.

Yes it is a display issue, as Falke stated. The totals are correct, and the game handled that assault correctly, but it did not display the +1 coming from the assault ability

Well.... :shock:

I apologize To Slitherine for my more aggressive take on this post. :oops:

Thanks to Falke for pointing out the discrepancy. 8)

I understand as a very small programmer that displaying all this important on limited real estate like HON PC is not always able to be displayed. Maybe a Tool tip with a more detailed break down can be displayed.

the problem is if it displays every box then the size of the images will have to be altered, then some will also say they are too small on some res screens as well, so you can't win them all either

We probably need a "modifiers" box with everything in and a tooltip breaking it down.

I agree. Personally I would love to see all the math and modifiers for a single combat in one area. I currently figure them out on my own but when my result and the game result differs it isn't easy to tell if it is my mistake or a bug.

It would be helpful if the previously proposed logging mechanism could detail all the modifiers. That would be a way to check the computers math. That could help with the occasional glitch such as the extra Obscured LoS glitch I noticed crop up a couple of times.
