1812 Campaign Game Reinforcement Glitch

Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:44 pm

In August - Oct 1814 Lt. Col. MacDonell with a number of foot and artillery units arrives in Quebec City (Kebec); however, these reinforcements are duplicated and arrive turn after turn after this. I've tested this three times. This is a superb scenario and it's a shame to see it marred with a glitch like this. Surely a quick patch can rectify this?

Events file for 1812 campaign seems not have been updated with last version DB (1.10e).
Did you notice others duplicated reinforcements in Kebec in July and August 1814 ?

I can provide a fix for it if you want.

Just the same units over and over, along with MacDonell as well. It may include July as well, I'm not sure as I started noticing it in August and every turn after that until the end of the game.
A fix would be well-received thanks.

Hi Bohémond, alteration put in and I'll confirm how it works when I get to those late-game reinforcements in a new game soon.
Thanks again.

I've run it through pbem and the MacDonell reinforcements are not repeating themselves; however 97th Foot appears duplicated for some reason.

Did you apply the provided fix for your PBEM game ?

I will check the 97th foot duplication.

Yes the original problem was corrected by your fix; 97th foot appearing twice is the only issue I am seeing now.

Thanks again.

You are right, 97th Foot does appear twice. In August and October 1814.
Do you know wich one is correct ?
If not, I will remove the August one.

I have no idea to be honest, but removing August sounds fair to me at that point in the war.
Thanks again.

It was May when the regiment arrived and August when it was first in battle. So I would speak in favor of removing October.
