Bug: The American Congress moves back to Philadelphia

Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:29 am

1.08rc11

In the 1775/1776 campaigns, if the Americans recapture Philadelphia, the "American Congress moves back to Philadelphia" event fires each turn. Harmless (I think) but annoying. Simple fix:

File: 1776 Campaign.sct
Event: evt_nam_CapitaltoPhilly_reset

[INDENT]ChgEvtOccurs = evt_nam_CapitaltoPhilly;MaxOccurs;0[/INDENT]

should be

[INDENT]ChgEvtOccurs = evt_nam_CapitaltoPhilly;MaxOccurs;-1[/INDENT]

I get this message every turn as well; I hope this fixes it.

But also, If the British re-capture Philadelphia I get the "...Congress has left Philadelphia..." message every turn thereafter. Will this edit fix that?

I believe (but am not completely certain) that it *will* fix that.

(I don't have any real experience with the event scripting language -- it looks to me like the event counter for that event would go down by 1 every turn after the Americans re-captured Philadelphia -- so it would become a negative number -- and that would cause the "leave Philadelphia" event to fire many times, but not forever, after re-re-capture of Philadelphia by the Brits)
