I often see burning and smoking buildings, although they are completely repaired...
That's a long-standing bug we never managed to figure out
It's nice if you find ways to replicate a bug.
This bug can be replicated by:
Sabotage an enemy radar.
Go far enough away so the radar is no longer visible (out of PVS), wait there for 2 minutes (long enough so new particles would have spawned)
Change teams (radar enters PVS) and repair.
Smoke is still there.
I might look more into it when I get time.
Yep, looks like it's creating double particle effects and overriding the references.
After my fix, these steps no longer replicate the issue.
Mostly two causes. I found are.
1. Building is not fully sabbed. Only way to fix is let a scout finish sabbing it.
- found this out by switching team and checking a vf that was smoking. It was part way sabbed.
2. Issue with buffer. Forget the command but flushing all temp game files and reloading them fixes it most of the time.
bro r u srs
Adding Herbie to the team was the best idea, he fixed up my entities AND this weird bug that's been here forever.
Are talking candles-caliber or what?
Anyway, do you guys know why I posted that screenshot?
I do, I feel like a video would be more fitting. I'm sure you could provide if you know how to reproduce this, 'cause I have no clue how it happens.
NF Ref looks blue on minimap or BE ref placed as a NF one?
It's a BE ref.
I am posting it for entertaining. I doubt it's even possible to reproduce.
Just reinforcing the fact that buildings are so wrong in Empires.
I have another screenshot featuring NF med with the turret of BE AFV, and as BE player I could see its hull status and armor. That's even more hilarious. I think some of you have seen that.
AFAIK that only happens when you are on shitty WIFI
Nab I don't use wifi but yeah, it can be internet issues.
Old bugs are old.
I miss the bug where you could steer the tank from the second seat.
I had so much fun trolling people with it.
i hope this was before 2.0, cause if not god damnit i missed out on so much fun
No it wasn't, I can't remember which version it got fixed in though.
It was up to like 2.25 or later or something. Was funny as fuck on Escort.
do you know what's funny as fuck on escort?
putting up the bridge 5 times and have the IT'S NOT DOWN YET sound play every time
Bugpires never disappoints you, there are still tons of bugs that you can use to troll people hard.
