Epidemics event bugged?

Wed Sep 21, 2016 10:43 pm

Hi
Just got the Epidemics event for the South East but when focused you land on Albany what is Mid Atlantic.
Not sure what exactly is wrong as I do not see any cohesion or strength loss on any units in both theaters.
Seems not to be a general problem as I have seen the Epidemics event work.
Would be nice if someone can check what the exact problem is.

I'll forward the issue to PhilThib then, thanks.

What side were you playing? Any save with you?.
I run the event and checked it, impossible to reproduce. BTW, the event, it's unchanged since 2007 and should not behave likewise.

I play USA.
No sorry, been to long and there is no backup save anymore.
Anyhow I checked "Various Events.sct" file and found this event.

SelectFaction = USA
StartEvent = evt_nam_USA_Epidemics_South_East|999|1|NULL|NULL|NULL|NULL

Conditions
MinDate = 1861/10/01
TurnIndex = 20;22;0;2;4;5
Probability = 35
PickUnit = $Deep_South;0;$Regular
GenMsg
EvalUnitSel = NULL

Actions
GenMsg
DescEvent = evt_desc_USA_Epidemics_South_East
ChgGroupHealth = -10
ChgGroupCoh = -40

EndEvent

Does not explain why the event pointed to Albany but I guess it shouldn't point to the Deep South if the South East is meant to be hit.

Again, same story as the Capital Defense event, this "error" is not in the original sources from 2016, where South_East is correctly labelled.

Anyway, taking the one in game, I fixed the wronged naming
