View Full Version : Bug with Barbarian Hunters in forests

15th Apr 2003, 01:59
In case Pyro plans on patching more than just the network stuff, I think this needs to be fixed. I've noticed it in a couple of campaign missions.

When Hunters are waiting in forests, there's a bug when certain troops enter the forest and are attacked by them. For example, my German Cavalry ran into some Hunters and when they were attacked, both cavalry and Hunters froze. I think the cavalry was actually 'dead', but they still appeared on the screen and I could select them. I could also still see the Hunters, but other troops would not attack them if ordered. This same bug happened with a wolf scout too: My wolf ran straight into a group of Hunters and then froze, so I couldn't 'recall' him. Even an over-flying hawk froze in mid-air after he was shot by archers.

I didn't have this problem when I entered the forest with Praetorians though; they fought with the Hunters like they would any other unit.

There's also a problem with the Hunters themselves: Sometimes they get stuck and look like they're having spasms.

The best solution for this is just to steer clear if you see Hunters, but you might lose a wolf scout while looking for them....

Had the thing happen with the wolf scout.

As far as other troops not being able to engage in combat, is it possible that the hunters were hiding - I'm not sure if the other player is allowed to see them when they are hiding or not.

The hawk thing must have been weird :)

What do you need diplomacy for?
I'm just asking as this would be an odd game to have diplomacy in.
