Current Bugs - Version 7.1.4

Post by bru888 » Thu Nov 15, 2018 2:49 am

Missing GUI buttons on the Main Screen * and in the Campaign Editor *
Sandstorm DLC does not load *
Battle of Britain is out of order
Panther in 1st scenario Endzieg (need to use Check Unit Strength condition)
Place names incorrectly displayed
Entwicklung Series Specialisation Error
Unable to create a game replay
ES 01 Donbass (incorrect "Never lose Stalino or Krasnograd" trigger)
Editor 7.1.4 issues (alliance color/nation flag mismatch)
ES 02 Op. Rumyantzev (incorrect "Don't lose Kharkov" trigger)
EndSieg Market Garden Glitch (missing a trigger effect allowing Son deploy)
ES 09 Paris (incorrect turn for holding Paris win)
PSA - Turn Start / Deployment Phase? (possibly displacing T>0 in old DLC)
Advanced Aeronautics (specialisation error)
Unit Issues 7.1.4
Moscow! (missing Event Popup details)
ES Anzio - Spawn Unit but no Target Hex
Date Issue (scenario editor confusion with 31st day)
Panzer Lehr / Panzerfibel / Tank School bug
Vyazma Soviet aircraft XP bug
Wire Guided Bomb Specialisation does not work
Panzerkrieg Caucasus Bugs

* The patch appears to be the problem with these issues. A complete uninstall/reinstall of the game using the setup file clears them up. Find the setup file here:

And when you uninstall your old program, leave these files alone because they contain your DLC keys. (The uninstall process knows to leave them there.) This way, you won't have to re-enter the keys when you install the fresh version of 7.1.4:

Let me add one to the list - tried to save twice a replay after finishing the first mission of Endsieg. However, the replay gets saved as a regular save file and is thus not usable. Can show a screenshot in the evening if needed though one can easily verify the bug after attempting to save a replay after a game and trying to open it.

I re checked my list after I converted 3A units.csv to 7.1.4 standard. This list remained


To Report
---------------------------------------
- Partisans have no texture on their rifles. on both figures they are black
- ITA 90mm AA faulty eject direction (W1 helper pivot)
- MG flash bug corrected in most cases but still noticeable sometimes (For example on L3/35 up-left and up-right direction) I try to make scrshot if needed.
- JAP Infantry bad mapping on canteen part
- GER Rifle bad backpack mapping
- GER Engineer bad mapping
- sIG33 Shadow is not generated for some reason
- ITA L3 series are burning in the horizontal direction when destroyed (D0 helper object pivot stuff)
- JAP KD6 KD7 submarines have their deck guns rotating around bad pivot
- Chasseurs Alpins and Chasseurs Ardennes have FOOT movement type but they are mountain inf
- Terrain object $Guard_tower mapping error
- FIN Infantry 1937 and 1938 Veh attk values are swapped, 37 has the bigger
- FIN Hvy 43 Veh def value is missing
- SU-152 breech part not moving with barrel when switching
- Tank turning anim bug (Heavy only?) - in select cases tanks turn their turrets towards each other, but then they turn the hull as well,and the barrel will be also rotated again with the hull. It seems to happen when the models are horizontal (left-right facing), and they need to turn 60degs towards each other. It did happened with medium tanks, it seems only heavies do it now... I try to make scrshot if needed.
- 37mm Bofors AT german - has finnish truck set for transport
- Italian Sub Type 1 - faulty switch to German TypeVII - reported before

Nice list, Admiral, good work!

A minor bug: If it's decided now for the WaffenSS to have 6/12/18 CP, then the spec texts should be changed to correspond, too.

OK, I did a fresh install as Bru said and Sandstorm works now but not B.o.B. Everything else is fine.

Problem with the availability date of the German FW190F plane as reported by Kondi here

Before you start playing, you need to change the unit.csv file
You will notice that there is no Fw 190F available to buy when you start Endsieg. There is an error in the game file, please delete the date "1943" ...
Fw 190F is a very universal and powerful weapon, so this is important information for those who will not import core from PK (where Fw 190F was available) :)

Sturmtiger

- has halftrack movement in artillery mode (should be tracked)
- has anti-tank switch action (should be tank action)

Panzer IVJ

- has "ersatz" specialisation (specialisation image missing)

Marder I

- incorrect internal unit name (it's Marder_II and it should be Marer_I)

Thanks, guys. This is a great way to "get everything in one basket" so to speak. Link to other threads as necessary and keep them coming.

Who is motivated to check all these many unit issues from the old topic?
viewtopic.php?f=372&t=85748
Not me! :P

But I can already tell you that the unit ban-list from the campaign-editor can still be circumvented by a reload.
Noticing that was already frustrating enough for me, as it was the only reason why I hadn't started Sandstorm yet... :evil:

These tanks have anti-tank switch action but are tanks not anti-tanks :
- Sturmpanzer IV
- StuG III B, D & E
- StuH 42

But Ostwind and wirbelwind have anti-tank switch and are REAL anti-tanks !

What is this unknown specialisation "ersatz" ? It is the only tank which has this specialisation "ersatz" ?

7.1.4 Update vs Setuprelease

Post by tula1959 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 12:02 am

When I did the Update I found that many custom content campaigns/scenarios would NOT load (including my in-progress Afrika Korps)… Followed advice found here and did a complete uninstall of OOB and downloaded the 7.1.4 Setuprelease, installed that fresh and all problems solved!!! Everything runs fine now!! This IS the answer!!

I think this is basically "retrograde" equipment specialization. Panzer IV J was worse than IV H, but cheaper to make. Maybe it was meant to be used, but the devs decided to remove the specialization and forgot to remove it from the unit data.

Another issue spotted:

Ar 234

- has the exactly the same stats as He 177
- this is probably a mistake since Ar 234 is a jet plane

IS-2

- date available is the same as IS-1, which is probably incorrect

If someone wants to fix that Panzer_Lehr icon then you need to rename the panzerlehr.png like its spec-name panzer_lehr.png.
The spec actually works.

I imagine that there was not much effort in providing correct dates for units that haven't really been covered yet by DLC campaigns like the Soviets. These year-only dates of the new Brit fighters also don't show much eager support yet, although you could already purchase them for Burma.
Who cares about details if units still work in the game for the AI at least? :?

What else I noticed so far is that pressing Esc-key seem to prefer showing the Controls panel first instead of the Save/Load one. Not good.
