The AI have used cheats I never knew existed...

Post by Syntax » 20 Jun 2008, 04:31

I was just in a LAN game with my little brother and 5 minutes after starting, I see a CPU's Viper-Wheel-SCOURGE MISSILE tank go by! And later, I watch as several of my tanks just die. No one is shooting at them, they just die. It doesn't even say I lost a unit, its like it hit the "Undo" button on them! :stressed:

Heh.. well, what tech level? I assume 3?

As for your units being killed off... someone WAS shooting them. You just couldn't see it. :)

It is a known bug. Some of your idle units went off attacking the enemy on someone else's computer, and when they died there, they mysteriously exploded on your computer where they remained idled the whole time. Hopefully we can manage to fix that soon.

Are you sure it was a Scourge and not just a Lancer? Or was it a WTF-big turret?

i'm sure of it, 2 barrels, massive center, red caps on each barrel.

That would explain why completely enclosing your base keeps that from happening to ground units, but not air.

Were the power settings set to max?

And did you allow alliances?

where you using cheats?
if so, i think one of you may have hit the key for 'give all' or whatever its called.

i did it by accident in scirmish when i was turning on 'sensors'.
