units disappearing version 102

Thanks a lot to Miguel for having updated the España 36 game.

I have started a new game (as nationalist against republican AI) and everything is better ; the AI uses RGD relatively well , there is only one Solchaga colonel, the morale of the republicans doesn't drop, there are small graphical improvements, you can't build a lot of units in a single region, ....

But i have faced a strange bug in April 37 : some falangist and requete units become "blank", they have no picture associated, they have a low cohesion (10 on 10) and the stack to which they belong has a power of zero.

I haven't run the game as administrator since he has always worked very well.

I don't know what to do.

If you need a saved game, I can furnish it (but I don't know what files do you need).

Thanks Gribeauval,
I already knew that issue, but still working on it.

Also there is no NAC Generic 3 unit portrait, only army portrait.

I know it means a lot of work, but even if there is no biography, could be something else displayed for the description of general and units instead of (..)?

Looks ugly this way, your second game, TYW, is more polished in aspects like this.

Just tried FOTN and some portraits missing for reserva vasco in Bilbao. 1.01 had them.

Ok, re FOTN.

I restarted the game; clicked on update from the start screen and it said there was a new version - but it was 1.01. downloaded and installed and there were the units in Bilbao - but different 3 Brigades and a truck. I re-installed 1.02 from the forum and the Bilbao units are now 3 Ferrandi and one truck. But now the Ferrandi have a photo.

The names could be added but this in fact doesnt apport much. If someone can help here, i could add the biographies.
In TYW development i was more experienced. Next game i hope to be better in some aspects too.

OK.

Then a little suggestion for your next game, whatever it is ;), add a Bibliography section to the manual.

It was lacking both in 1936 as in TYW, IMO it adds some kind of "seriousness" to the game, and I am pretty sure you used more than one book for any of your games.

More than one probably yes :bonk:

As you say both games lack it, but it seems that i forget finally to add it in TYW because i remember to be preparing that bibliography documentation for the Appendix, but at the end i forgot to ad it :grr:

You still may do it with a manual addenda, better late than never ;)

Hmm.. curious. Was the FOTN scenario changed between 1.01 and 1.02? It is not just that my 1.02 initially had missing pictures but different units and values.

In 1.02 I now have 6 commandante Ferrandi in Bilbao ! (3 in reserva vasca, 3 in other units)
In 1.01 it is no Ferrandi but reserva vasca has 3 brigades with power of 123..

Anyway, I realise I am probably the only person in the world playing this scenario at the moment so I don't expect an immediate resolution!

Would you suggest I play the 1.01 version or the 1.02 version?

Tallebois,

That seems a bug, i'm checking what happened here.

edit:

after rebuilding the scenario the issue dissapears.
Replace the scen by this please.

You mean in a separate document?

Yes, why not?

If you do not want to or cannot modify the pdf of the manual it is the only way.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, this seems to work.

Glad to hear that you are building a third game, Leibstandarte.

Is this bug (the "empty" units) in España 36 difficult to fix ?

Re: units disappearing version 102

I'm sorry to insist, but I like this game.
Are there any news about a fix for the bug that I have encountered in Espana36 (these "empty" units) ?

Could Mr Thibault and Mr Malacher help you to solve this mistery, Miguel ?

By the way, I have noted that these "empty" units are only requetes or falangists.

Regards.

Thanks Gribeauval,
We are still working on this issue, and yes, its a hard one.
If I feel I cant solve it, of course I will ask Pocus for his help. Please be patient.

Does this help - as with FOTN I have just compared a scenario in 1.01 and 1.02.

In the big scenario - whole war, playing as the Nationalists. In Burgos:

1.01 the garrison has Sagardia with a portrait
1.02 Sagardia has no portrait

I have identified that the issue starts around March-April 1937. Something is happenning there and related with falangist and requetes.

This is due to the lack of NAC Generic 3 unit portrait commented above, also happens with Álvarez-Rementería in Sevilla.

Miguel, I remember that an event has arisen before this issue : this event said that the Requetes and the Phalange were unified.
Maybe is there a problem here : you have perhaps coded a true unification, instead of a cosmetic event ??

Re: units disappearing version 102

I think its fixed.
Just unzip this file in the events folder.
It was related with the event you mentioned. But it was another event added as a plugin.
So if this is the solution, we have to remake the patch correctly adding the pdf as Nikel says.

I have downloaded the new plugin. I have launched my saved game, at hte same turn, but the issue is still here.

Must I restart the game from the beginning ? Or one turn before the issue arise ? Or just before the event is fired ?
i don't know exactly when this event happened.

Regards.

You have to reload the turn before the issue appears.
It is 1st or 2nd week of April.

Hi Miguel, I have reloaded the previous turn and it seems working : no more "empty" units.

But something new happens : in the South, some of the Requetes and Falangists units become "standard" infantry regiments (those with the kaki uniform). They seem having been upgraded.
I have never seen this before.
Is it normal ? Are these units slowly integrated in the regular metropolitan army ?
The issue is that the Requetes are losing their morale bonus in the process.

Regards.

That's wad, the unification event mades regulars the requetes and falange units.

But historically did the uniforms change?

I have to check that but I remember to see regular uniforms with the Falange icon on the shirt.
