Promotion stars are shoot me signs - Problem solved

Post by GottaLove88s » Tue Jun 05, 2012 6:43 pm

Sorry if you haven't got around to this one yet gents, but I just noticed that it's still possible to see promotion star animations anytime an MP opponent promotes a unit, either through clicking the promotion icon, or through an ambushing unit getting a natural promotion... Unfortunately, unless you're playing a v principled opponent, promotions become "shoot me" signs highlighting your hidden units for the enemy... NOTE TO PLAYERS: Don't promote units if they're anywhere near to the enemy... You're just showing us where you are

Your speaking about multiplayer correct?
On the iPad, the promotion is automatic (during campaign) I have no control over that.

Regarding multiplayer on iPad, I would not know for I have not ventured there yet.

Yep Odion, Promote anything within vision of an enemy unit and your opponent will see the star of the promotion animation light up on top of that unit. That happens when you get promoted naturally through kills, or if you click the promotion button (when available). Try not to get promoted if you'd prefer to remain hidden for The Big One...

That's a relief.
This definitely needs to be remedied.

More of a temporary solution, be careful when including and modifying these files in your map/campaign. They are main functionality files that will probably be updated in each version of BA, so you will have to compare to see the new additions and update your custom maps for each version. If not your maps will play with "previous version" style rules/scripts.

Thanks rf, that's wise advice... This is something that's on Pip's "loooooong list", so it might have been fixed in 2.0.6... These guys are pretty darned responsive... Will monitor and update/remove if necessary... Thanks for the reminder :-)
