Default Bug Thread: The Shortlist

Bug Thread: Discussion
In-Game Typos
Manual Typos
Dom3 Progress Page at Illwinter

The Shrapnel Games staff have asked me to tackle the task of clearing up the bug thread and managing bug reporting here on the forum and I decided to take it up. Therefore, there are going to be some changes to the way we are doing those things from now on.

This thread here is going to be serving as a shortlist of known bugs. The bugs are going to be categorized according to what they affect, the severity and possible other things. This thread is also going to stay locked and the only people posting here will be me, the devs and possibly other moderators. That way the bug list is not going to get cluttered up as the original bug thread did. The basis for this thread is going to be a distillation of the issues currently buried in the old bug thread. It will be posted in sections as soon as I manage to comb through it, collect unresolved issues and organize them to a coherent list.

The original bug thread will still serve in much the same capacity as it did previously, i.e. you can use it to report new bugs and discuss them. That way if something that is not actually a bug is reported as such, it can simply be commented to be Working As Designed (WAD) and forgotten. The discussion thread and the typo threads are going to be unstickied to give more room for general topics on the first forum page. The relevant threads are linked above.

If you have games or files that require more thorough analysis, send them to Illwinter along with a thorough, detailed description of the problem. You should send them to the i-n-f-o(at)i-l-l-w-i-n-t-e-r(dot)c-o-m address. Just remove the dashes and format the address correctly.

If the issue you are reporting is more than a minor detail and especially if it is something major like the bugs related to the Gatestone and gating spells that transport armies, please DO post a separate thread for discussing that problem in more detail. Linking such a separate thread from the shortlist is much easier than trying to find a possibly large number of posts from the mass in the discussion thread.

Note that even the discussion thread is subject to far more aggressive moderation than it used to be up until this point. Posts that report WAD things as bugs because the personal preferences of the forumer reporting it will be split to a feature requests thread, or if splitting is too unwieldy due to forum moderation mechanics, quoted to the feature request thread and then deleted from the discussion thread.

Some guidelines on how to report bugs:
  • Unit bugs: ALWAYS include the monster number (you can see this by viewing the unit and pressing shift+i and it will also tell you weapon and armor numbers of the unit) and name and then specify the problem with that particular unit. This is especially important because there are several units with the same name and several units with functionally much the same things but perhaps only one of them has some minor issue (e.g. a typo). If you do not provide the ID number, chances are nobody else is going to bother looking it up either and thus it is not likely to get fixed.
  • Weapon bugs: ALWAYS include weapon number, name and an accurate, detailed description of the problem.
  • Armor: See weapon bugs
  • Magic Items: ALWAYS include magic item number (select item for viewing and Shift-I will give you item number, or look it up in the Dom3 DB) and an accurate description of the problem.
  • Magic sites: ALWAYS include site number, name and a detailed description of the problem. If you do not know the site number, please look it up in the Dom3 DB (link in my sig)
  • Forts, poptypes: As above, include ID number and accurate description of the problem
  • Typos: Please report in-game typos in the In-Game Typos thread. When you report a typo, specify exactly where it appears (monster number, item number etc). Provide a correction for the typo. Preferably, write out the entire description with the spelling errors, displaced commas etc corrected, because that will allow the devs to concentrate on fixing more important things and just copy-paste the corrected description into the code. REMEMBER: If something is not spelled according to American English spelling, it is not necessarily a typo, because UK English spelling is somewhat different on many counts. If you are not sure, consult a dictionary first.


BUG REPORT SHORTLIST SYNTAX:

The following syntax will be used to express what category bugs belong to and how the short code each bug will get is formed:

Category:
  • Units: U [monster nbr]-[entry nbr] (each issue to be listed separately, may have varying severity)
  • Weapons: W [weapon nbr]-[entry nbr] (see above)
  • Armor: A [Armor nbr]
  • Magic items: I [item nbr]-[entry nbr] (see above)
  • Magic sites: MS [site nbr]
  • Spells: SP [spell name][entry nbr] (if there is more than one entry for a given spell and more than one problem with different severity)
  • Forts/Poptypes: FT [fort nbr] or POP [poptype nbr]
  • Behavior: BHV [optional codes][summary]
  • Mercenaries: MERC [entry nbr]
  • Combat issues: CBT-[clarification]-[optional entry nbr]
Other issues might need to get more individual codes or can't perhaps be straightforwardly categorized. We can wing those as they come along.

Severity/status/other:
Major
Significant
Normal/Average/Not yet classified to another category
Minor
Trivial
Fixed
Dev Comments
Edi's Comments

Severity and status will be primarily determined by Illwinter. Anyone else's assessments are secondary and only guesstimates unless the issue is well known. Typos are always either minor (missing descriptions, significant description errors) or trivial (e.g. other vs otehr or similar).

That should be just about all of it for now. Of course, anything and everything said above is subject to revision by the administrative staff or the developers if they think something should be done differently. The following post will contain the list of bugs as soon as I can compile it.

Default Re: Bug Thread: The Shortlist

The first installment in the bug shortlist is a fairly large number of things related to units, weapons, armor, magic sites and other such. Most of these things are data typos and easy to fix and the list had been largely compiled and ready to post.

Many of them are trivial and do not impact gameplay as such, but they have been included for the sake of completeness.

Issues that start the summary/description with a question mark are things that could be either WAD or could be bugs and have been included to get clarification. If they are WAD, they will be dismissed and if they are not, then they belong on this list anyway.


FORTS & POPTYPES
  • POP86 no recruitable commanders, bakemono poptype
  • POP87 no recruitable commanders, bakemono poptype
  • FT43 Jewled City should be spelled "Jeweled City" or "Jewelled City"

MAGIC SITES
  • MS 63 City of Tombs 1095 Keeper of Tombs is recruitable by all instead of being homecommander for C'tis only
  • MS 546 Forest beneath the Waves should summon monster 1062 Sea Stag, not 1162 Warrior Chief
  • MS 437 Academy Underneath should give fort 12 Kelp Fortress, not fort 16 Cave Castle
  • MS 443 Kelp Fortress should give fort 12 Kelp Fortress, not fort 16 Cave Castle
  • MS 558 Sea of Dead Memories cannot enter site to summon creatures


WEAPONS
  • W53 Delibitative Poison should be spelled "Debilitative Poison"
  • W81 Thorn Staff 1-handed, should be 2-handed
  • W83 Wave Breaker 1-handed, should be 2-handed
  • W89 Snake Staff 1-handed, should be 2-handed
  • W124 Ice Rod not magic weapon, should be
  • W223 Venomous Bite not bonus, should be as all other bites are
  • W323 Venomous Bite not bonus, should be as all other bites are
  • W340 Procas's Axe of Rulership 2-handed, should be 1-handed
  • W351 Pitchfork 1-handed, should be 2-handed
  • W411 Small Area Stun is NOT stun damage!!! Causes automatic 10 an normal damage with aoe 1
  • W457 Spectral Axe 2-handed, should be 1-handed based on stats (length 1) OR should be 2-handed and length 3 Update: Is now length 3, 2-handed
  • W459 Thrown Sutra should have effect #460 (Stop the Dead) as per description of Master of the Dead (monster #806)

ARMOR
  • A31 Rusty Scale mail Hauberk should be "Rusty Scale Mail Hauberk" Important because assigning armor in mods happens by armor name, not number. This requires consistent spelling.
  • A32 Rusty Ring mail Hauberk should be "Rusty Ring Mail Hauberk"
  • A33 Rusty Chain mail Hauberk should be "Rusty Chain Mail Hauberk"


MONSTERS
  • U121 Demonbred undead leadership 0, should be 40 like Demonbred 87

  • U644 Dracolich > cost mismatch 50/100 between 644 & 645
  • U645 Bog Mummy goldcost 100 should be 50; This cost mismatch makes dracolich too expensive to be a viable pretender
  • U471 Golem not magic being, should be
  • U561/1 Earth Gnome no magic leadership
  • U561/2 Earth Gnome has foot itemslot, should not have
  • U562/1 Sylph no magic leadership

  • U1198 Horticulturist oldage should be 80 like all other hoburgs
  • U1261 Oni Spirit encumbrance 1, should be 0 like all other oni spirits

Default Re: Bug Thread: The Shortlist

Next installment of the bug shortlist, this has all the unresolved unit, battlefield and nation issues from the old bug thread and a couple of others that have appeared in recent threads. Issues related to the GUI, spells, events, AI, systems and commander behavior will appear later.

Things have been categorized here much the same as previously to help resolve them quicker. Same deal with things that have question marks: Unclear but included in order to get clarification.

EDIT: Attached a file with two savegames that demonstrate the HoF bug mentioned toward the end of the list. Both games are on the Cradle of Dominion map.

AGE DISCREPANCIES Might have something to do with regen. I think regen increases lifespan
  • U525/1 Couatl oldage 75
  • U934/1 Feathered Serpent oldage 75
  • U1194/1 Couatl oldage 300 Essentially same monster as 525 and 934, why different old ages ?
  • U518 Troll ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from poptype, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • U564 Sea Troll ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from site, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • U1037 War Troll ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from poptype, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • U1086 Troll Moose Knight ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from poptype, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • U1309 Jotun Wolf ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from nation, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable elsewhere
  • U1310 Jotun Skinshifter ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from nation, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable elsewhere
  • U1651 Jotun Werewolf ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from nation, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable elsewhere
  • U1652 Jotun Werewolf ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from nation, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable elsewhere
  • U1653 Jotun Wolf ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when recruiting from nation, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable elsewhere
  • U1425 Troll Guard ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 when summoned, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • U1529 Slave Troll ? age discrepancy: oldage 200 normally, oldage 400 when modded as recruitable
  • Other troll units can also have this same discrepancy, but have not been confirmed


HERO/UNIQUE ISSUES:
  • U506/U866 Hero ? Hierogallus, 506 startage 60, 866 startage 27, description same and says old
  • U540 White Minotaur ? national hero, goldcost 70 should be 0
  • U544 Einhere ? national hero, goldcost 20 should be 0
  • U556 Sacred One ? national hero, goldcost 30 should be 0
  • U585 Guild Master no swamp survival, should have it like other C'tisians
  • U622 Traitor King ? national hero, goldcost 290 should be 0
  • U635 Ancient Shaman ? national hero, goldcost 230 should be 0
  • U770 White Satyr ? national hero, goldcost 110 should be 0
  • U863 Apostatic Warrior ? national hero, goldcost 320 should be 0
  • U865 Pontifex Serpentus ? national hero, goldcost 190 should be 0
  • U946 Lady of Spiders ? national hero, goldcost 110 should be 0
  • U952 Hero (Abasi) ? should have mapmove 3 as per basic Machakan infantry
  • U953 King Triumphant (Yasini) ? should have mapmove 3 as per basic Machakan infantry
  • U1021/1 Ghoul Baron should have mapmove 2 like Ghoul Guardians (1020)
  • U1021/2 Ghoul Baron ? national hero, goldcost 20 should be 0
  • U1228/1 Pharmakeia ? national hero, goldcost 210 should be 0
  • U1228/2 Pharmakeia has glamour, no stealth
  • U1382 Abductor ? national hero, goldcost 500 should be 0
  • U1584 Son of Steel ? mapmove 1 while all other EA Ulm commanders and heroes have mapmove 2
  • U1670 Heart Hider no description
  • U359 Queen of the Sea no regen, should have regen 90%she regenerates under water
  • U470/1 Father Illearth ? not magic being even though King of Mountains (469) is
  • U470/2 Father Illearth oldage 100, should be more All other elemental royalty have oldage 1000+
  • U906 King of Deeper Earth has enc 1 (like 469 and 470, the other earth kings), all other elemental royalty have enc 0 and so do earth gnomes
  • U1405 Goat Sun ? goldcost 100 should be 0 Rather trivial and the demon lord could be greedy.


HITPOINT DISPLAY WRONG IN RECRUITMENT SCREEN:
What does this mean? Most of these are not recruitable. In what way do their HP display wrong? Perhaps they are old. Old guys have less HP. Or do they have extra HP?
This issue is apparently caused by a unit's startage being greater than its modified maxage. In other words, if the unit would suffer from old age without the magics it has, its hitpoints are displayed in the recruitment screen as if it were old even though it does not have any penalty
  • U238 Pan (25/27)
  • U446 Lord of the Plague Wind (84/88)
  • U470 Father Illearth (104/130)
  • U516 Pandemoniac (25/27)
  • U525/2 Couatl (17/20)
  • U585 Guild Master (10/11)
  • U586 Great Hag (42/44)
  • U611 Black Bull (25/29)
  • U614 Harpy Queen (15/16)
  • U621 Treelord (238/250)
  • U626 Fallen Angel (47/49)
  • U706 Pan (25/27)
  • U709 Panic Apostate (25/27)
  • U732 Priest King (14/15)
  • U780 Lord of the Hunt (77/90)
  • U810 Lord of Hell (160/177)
  • U865 Pontifex Serpentus (11/12)
  • U900 Lord of Corruption (130/144)
  • U934/2 Feathered Serpnet (16/20)
  • U980 Treelord (238/250)
  • U981 Dying Treelord (200/250)
  • U1038 Capricorn (34/37)
  • U1190 Priest King (14/15)
  • U1194/2 Couatl (19/20)
  • U1360 Onaqui (30/31)
  • U1405 Goat Sun (94/104)
  • U1431 Nushi (9/10)
  • U1582 Guardian of the Tree (10/13)
  • U1672 Master of the Shadow Blossom (14/15)
  • U1708 Consort of the Dead (8/10)


UNITS
  • U601 Lady of Fortune Current maxage 50 should be 1000 like other titans. Obsolete unit not available as pretender for any nation per se, but wishing for Lady of Fortune produces this unit.
  • U1039 Capricorn (landform) Should have stealth. Giving the seaform orders to sneak to land ends up sending the unit to combat or getting it stuck without possibility to give any orders if target province is independent or hostile because the seaform has stealth but the landform does not.
  • U1235 Leviathan Counts as normal unit despite being undead. Not confirmed independently.
  • U1236 Leviathan Counts as normal unit despite being undead. Not confirmed independently.
  • U529 Sea Father ? Description obsolete, needs updating. Not confirmed independently.
  • U1483 Tzitzimitl counts as normal unit despite being demon. Not confirmed independently.
  • U1035 Blood Marshal should not be able to enter the sea, other vampires can't
  • U1703 Mournful have no shield despite graphic. Update graphic or add bone shield armor (not in the game as of yet) and slap that on them?
  • U187 Longdead Legionnaire has wrong graphics. Unit is armed with sword, graphic shows spear and is identical to 186 Longdead Velite

WEAPONS
  • ? W451 Obsidian Club Sword is 1-handed, length 3 should be 1 or 2 ?


BATTLEFIELD
  • CBT 004 Cave battlefields (cave terrain and the various cave castles) are bugged. There is a hole in the battlefield, if units start in hole, they cannot move, attack or retreat and must be killed or autokilled after routing before battle ends.
  • SYS PD Limit PD limit of 125 will overflow to negative values if events push the value past that.
  • GUI Negative Death Scale Negative death scale shows wrong % penalty to population (0.-6% instead of -0.6% for death 3 etc.).
  • GUI Special Reported by PM No, don't ask before the next patch comes out, I will still NOT give an answer
  • GUI Shortcut 'H' does not work
  • GUI Shortcut 'h' does not work correctly: When the right side menu is hidden - key (h) - , the access to the options menu - key (esc) - doesn't work anymore, the right menu must be unhidden to regain access to the options menu.
  • GUI Tips A tip states that Man temples cost only 200, but they still cost 400 (?). Carryover from Dom2 with just the gold value changed? Seems that tip was correct and temple cost was wrong, but it is listed as fixed on the progress page.

Quote:
Cainehill said:
Tien Chi Barbarian Kings display says it has Water, Astral, Air, and _Fire_ for magic. Since none of their mages can get fire, that's incorrect.
Also, says "Priests: Average" - with only H1 priests, so should display Weak. Also : some nations display Average, others Medium - what's the nominal difference?

Default Re: Bug Thread: The Shortlist

Installment #3, containing bugs related to spells, map and mod commands, scenarios, game creation, events, AI issues and various types of behavior (commanders, as well as other). All behavior bugs start with BHV and may have other flags also (e.g. BHV MERC <description> for a bug related to behavior of mercenary commanders only)

I'll add the system issues and GUI issues during the weekend. Some of them need some serious attention to formatting before they can be added to the shortlist and I might end up making a report post concerning some of them that will just quote the actual reports since they include the type of information that does not suffer truncating without becoming garbled.

EDIT: Added the helmet and awe bugs to mod command bugs.

Here we go:

Maps, Map Commands & Modding Issues
  • MAP Cradle of Dominion: Several incorrect terrain assignments, some neighbor problem and a lot of missing nostarts. Fixed version available here
  • MAP Parganos: Some missing nostarts, several missing neighbors for the string of eastern sea provinces. Fixed version available here
  • MOD (spell) #copyspell doesn't work
  • MOD (monster) helmet type armors have halved protection
  • MOD (monster) #siegebonus <nbr> does not work at all
  • MOD (monster) #castledef <nbr> always produces castle defense bonus of 1000
  • MOD (weapon) #dt_demon does not work. Weapons do not display the 2x dmg vs demons attribute.
  • MOD (weapon) #nratt does not work There is a limit of -3 for weapons that have less than 1 attack per round, however.
  • MAPEDITOR #defaultmapzoom & #maptextcol Generating a map with the RMG will add #defaultmapzoom into the map file. When you edit the map in the map editor and save the file, #maptextcol will be added but #defaultmapzoom will be wiped out. Presumably this should not happen, since the behavior only cropped up after #maptextcol was added.

SPELLS
  • SPELL Mind Hunt causes game to crash
  • SPELL Wild Hunt: If there are priests sieging a castle that are attacked by the Wild Hunt, the ownership of the castle switches to the sieging force without contest on the next turn and the former defenders will be sieging the castle. Has been tested. Ask Nickles for more information if needed.
  • SPELL Ritual of Rebirth only affects first 10 slots of Hall of Fame, not the full 15. Legacy from Dom2.
  • SPELL Summon Black Dogs / Summon Barghest These two spells have their effects switched around, i.e. Summon Black Dogs summons Barghest and vice versa.
  • SPELL The Looming Hell Devils from this spell can appear and fight underwater even though devils (304) are not capable of entering the sea (neither amphibian, poor amphibian or aquatic).
  • SPELL Summon Umbrals (MA Agartha) works underwater but Umbrals (1490) cannot enter the sea and drown instantly. Either spell or monster should be modified.
  • SPELL Dreams of R'lyeh Causes game to hang if cast at a province that contains only undead.
  • SPELL Summon Great Eagle Description error: Description says the summoned eagles are sacred, they are not and are not even supposed be (ref. U1383 in first summary post)
  • SPELL Blood Rite Description error: Description says vampires are almost impossible to hit without magical weapons, a reference to the ethereal ability they no longer have
  • SPELL Voice of Tiamat Description does not say that this spell can only be cast underwater

  • SPELL Faery Trod Affects caster only, troops stay in province of origin Discussion thread here
  • SPELL Astral Travel Affects caster only, troops stay in province of origin, see discussion thread linked above
  • SPELL Stygian Paths Numerous forms of strange behavior, see discussion thread linked above
  • SPELL Relief can cause game to crash. Hadrian II reports: Linux version, enemy casts Relief in battle, game crashes and console output is ?N?got gick fel! spritewidth: unfetched spr N?got gick fel! spritewidth: unfetched spr N?got gick fel +2 ()!? Ask him for more information if necessary. Game files were not included in report, though the host of the game where this occurred may still have them if he followed Hadrian's request to save them.


More additions:
  • GUI Cave Provinces have junk icon instead of cave icon on main screen
  • BHV SPELL Paralyze Unique summonable monsters that are paralyzed and then killed in combat will remain paralyzed when summoned again, the paralysis persists with the leftover value. Is this possibly tied to the way paralysis works in combat and the unique ID tag of the monster in the game? Fixed by adding a nullification on death, the same way exp is handled?
  • BHV SPELL Burden of Time Burden of Time affects undead with disease affliction and kills them or keeps adding afflictions. Discussion thread here
  • BHV SYS Exit on Right-click Some players have reported Dom3 to quit to Windows when right-clicking on a province. Discussion thread. See also end portion of bug discussion thread.

Default Bookmark: Patch 3.08

Version 3.08

The management of the Bug Shortlist changes somewhat with this patch. Issues will be divided into separate posts by category. If new issues belonging to an existing category are reported, they will be added by editing the relevant post. This way the thread will stay organized. When the next patch comes out, it will also be bookmarked, all open issues will be transferred below the bookmark post and fixed issues will stay where they are.

  • FT 27 Ermorian Castle Battle graphics are broken and defenders start outside walls and cannot retreat from the battlefield Are you sure? Castle 8 and 28 are positively broken, but 27 doesn't seem to be Mistaken report. I did not test this myself, so there we are. Apologies.
  • SPELL Summon Bean Sidhe conjures a Tlahuelpuchi, the Mictlan blood summon.
  • AI CBT SPELL Raise Dead AI will cast Raise Dead in combat even if there are no corpses. Nothing is reanimated and the caster only gets fatigue from casting.
  • AI ITEM Black Heart AI gives Black Hearts to commanders without stealth, ruining both item and commander.
  • BHV SPELL Blessing (all varieties) does not affect undead sacred units, making them unblessable. There is a thread with a mod attached that temporarily fixes this issue here and DrPraetorius can probably help pinpoint where the problem is if it's necessary.
  • BHV MERC Gems: It is possible to steal blood slaves from a mercenary by selecting him and using the Z shortcut. This should not work.


MODS
  • MOD (weapon) #secondaryeffectalways does not work correctly.
  • MOD (weapon) #aoedoes not work
  • MOD (monster) #reinvigoration does not work
  • MOD (monster) #awe <bonus> effect is actually #awe <bonus-1>, so to get awe 0 the command must be formatted #awe 1 WAD, it's like that in the code as well. 0=no awe Very good, this is nice to know and Mod FAQ material when somebody writes one
  • MOD (nation) #clearsites does not work as it should. If a nation has several startsites (e.g. Mictlan, all eras, 4 sites), each site must be cleared separately before all sites are clear


NATION ISSUES
  • NAT EA & MA Caelum leadership issue: Storm Generals and Tempest Lords (1288) of Caelum can only lead 40 units. High Seraphs and Seraphines can lead the same amount, cost less resources and one is a mage, the other a stealthy priest. There's no reason to ever buy a Storm General. Thus Storm Generals should have a better leadership value? Same problem with Tempest Lord in EA.
  • NAT EA Abysia PD: Has humanbreds as PD but can't recruit them.
  • NAT LA C'tis Reanimation: Cannot reanimate Tomb Wyrms (monster 693) in 3.04
  • NAT MA Agartha PD: MA Agartha can't recruit PD underwater. Agartha MA has no wet ones and most of the population are humans.
  • NAT Kailasa PD: PD includes heavily armored Bandar Warriors that are not available for recruitment in EA.
  • NAT LA Man Stealth LA Man has stealthy sacred units but no stealthy priests. Thus stealthy blessed raiders are not available for strategy options. This seems like an accidental oversight. Lord Warden got p1 and a slightly new descr
  • NAT MA Eriu forts: Eriu can only build motte-and-bailey, seems to be in all terrains but plains/farm. Should probably have more variety As far as I can tell from the code they should have hillforts in mountainns, cities in farms, swampcastles in swamps and mottes in forests, and motte also in plain and waste as default. True. Reported as bug due to incomplete testing. My mistake.
  • NAT EA(?) Agartha PD: Agartha receives the same province defense under water as on the surface. Should receive Wet Ones underwater?
  • NAT LA Mictlan PD: Underwater PD is the same as land PD, even though manual says uw PD should be Atlantean. High level of PD adds some Atlantean light infantry, but base uw PD should get Atlantean militia? doesn't seem to be in the code, are you certain? Perhaps I was mistaken, but somebody did report the uw PD not being what it should. Works just fine when tested with v3.10
  • NAT All amphibious PD: Underwater PD is the same as land PD, feat_uwdef1 etc doesn't work.

DESCRIPTION ERRORS, NATIONS DESCRIPTIONS
  • Middle Era Arco doesn't have any air magic, yet is still described as having 'elements' magic.
  • Shinuyama has nature and water, but this is not mentioned, nor are its many national summons. The troops category should mention Kappas.
  • Middle Era T'ien Ch'i says it has fire magic when it actually has earth.
  • Middle Era Jotunheim's magic description should read 'Water, Blood, Death, Nature, Astral' to better reflect its relative power in these paths.
  • Barbarian Kings' magic description is completely wrong.
  • Conquerors of the Sea has air and astral magic, but this is omitted.
  • Early Era Abysia has earth magic, but this isn't mentioned.

Default 3.08 Statfix Issues

Various issues that would mainly be simple statfixes.

Note that while some description errors are listed, most of these and any other typos in the game should be taken care of in the next patch, pending the outcome of a project I have been working on. Mentions of the "Great Fixing" in my comments are references to this project.


MAGIC SITES
  • MS 1 The Smouldercone (ME) Does not increase heat Probably due to having gems + 4 recruitables. Move 1 recruitable to other site & add heat? Or leave as is? Has apparently been fixed by adding heat and moving one recruitable to another site

ARMOR
  • A50 Weigthless Scale Mistyped as "Weigthless Scale", correct spelling is "Weightless Scale"

WEAPONS
  • W 94 Spear should be bonus but is not (Centaur Chariot bonus weapon). This causes the Centaur chariot to have completely abysmal attack values for all of its weapons because it gets ambidexterity penalties for all three spears (1, 94 & 96)
  • W 96 Spear should be bonus but is not (Centaur Chariot bonus weapon). This causes the Centaur chariot to have completely abysmal attack values for all of its weapons because it gets ambidexterity penalties for all three spears (1, 94 & 96)
  • W 119 Hammer of the Cyclops ? nostr, should not be WAD, the hammer gives the wielder the strength of a cyclops
  • W 195 Sword of many Colors typo: should be spelled "Sword of Many Colors"
  • W 208 Thunder Whip ??? 10 an damage, shock only? Or should be 0 (max 1) + shock ? Apparently 1st option is WAD?
  • W 433 Shadow Spear rescost 0, should have rescost 1+ because is equipped on recruitable units
  • W 437 Long Spear should be bonus but is not, is nostr weapon used from back of elephant. This causes the elephant to suffer ambidexterity penalties from all weapons when attacking same sized targets and a totally abysmal attack value

UNITS
  • U 334 Golden Naga ? should have darkvision 75, oldage should be 1000 if unit is ever to be used, and it can be wished for. She is not supposed to be wished for. She is not in the game, unless you sort of cheat, and then you must face the consequences
  • U 385 Daughter of the Land oldage should be 1000; irrelevant as such because the unit is obsolete and not available, but all other titans have oldage 1000+Huge pretenders automatically get 100 maxage. If made pretender she should have 1000 maxage as well This unit, like the golden naga, can be wished for, so it'd be nice if the maxage wre increased to 1000, but not such a big deal
  • U 562/1 Sylph Itemslots 4x hand, 1x head, should be 2x hand, 1x head, 1x body, 2x misc
  • U 563, U 911, U 912; The Air Queens: If the air queens are equipped with a water breathing item and cloud trapezed into a sea province (which they normally cannot enter), they behave erratically. If the sea province is next to land, they can move out into the land province. If it is surrounded by other sea provinces, the unit is stuck and cannot move AT ALL, nor can it use Cloud Trapeze to get out. WAD. Air queens cannot enter seas. Just like a vampire she is hurt by water, and if you by magic forced her to enter the sea, you should be lucky that she did survive at all . She is supposed to loose 100% of her hitpoints every turn. If she was a prophet she might have survived. She will be happy to leave the sea, but not to enter another sea.
  • U 585 Guild Master No swamp survival
  • U 671 Dispossessed Spirit should not have itemslot for feet
  • U 751 Thing that Should not Be should be spelled "Thing That Should Not Be"
  • U 758 Thing of many Eyes should be spelled "Thing of Many Eyes"
  • U 821 Ice Devil should have fire resistance penalty 50% ?
  • U 823 Ice Devil should have fire resistance penalty 50% ?
  • U 824 Ice Devil should have fire resistance penalty 50% ?
  • U 825 Ice Devil should have fire resistance penalty 50% ?
  • U 1198 Horticulturist Weapons 153 Stick & 80 Fire Brand, should only have 153 Stick
  • U 1287 Tempest Warrior Description refers to Ring Mail Hauberks as armor and states they do not use ice armor, yet unit has 2 points of iceprot (temp dependent).
  • U 1288 Tempest Lord Description refers to Ring Mail Hauberks as armor and states they do not use ice armor, yet unit has 2 points of iceprot (temp dependent).
  • U 1363 Ancestral Spirit should not have itemslot for feet[/color]
  • U 1416 Mermage Descr typo "...loose..." --> "...lose..." This should be taken care of by the Great Fixing
  • U 1549 Shuten-doji flute aura affects friends as well as foes; it should not. Version 3.04
  • U 1562 Void Spectre No undead leadership, is an undead commander
  • U 1776 Bean Sidhe Undead unit, has encumbrance 3. Description & name are same as 1774 Bean Sidhe, is this intended?
  • U 1778 Hero (Cu Chulainn) AP 13, other chariot units have 16
  • U 1788 Firbolg Champion Goldcost 13 should be 45

    Pokey noses . Why report bugs on unfinished units? Some might be useful though.
  • U 1790/1 Nemedian Warrior No forest survival (Nemedian Sorceress and Nemedian Queen have forest survival)
  • U 1790/1 Nemedian Champion No forest survival (Nemedian Sorceress and Nemedian Queen have forest survival)
  • U 1792/1 Nemedian Sorceress Wrong weapon or graphics. Weapon is dagger, graphic is staff/spear. Units with essentially same graphics 1794 Partholonian Sorcerer has weapon 473 Golden Spear and 1795 Partholonian Sorceress has 7 Quarterstaff
  • U 1792/2 Nemedian Sorceress Cost same as 1790 Nemedian Champion, but not sacred (more upkeep), only has 1 more magic, so no incentive to ever buy this unit except MAYBE for the random.
  • U 1793/1 Nemedian Queen Wrong weapon or graphics. Weapon is dagger, graphic is staff/spear. See U1792 for more graphics notes
  • U 1793/2 Nemedian Queen If this unit is a national hero, goldcost 200 should be 0
  • U 1793/3 Nemedian Queen Base hit points displayed as 12 in recruitment screen, true value is 13, visible when right-clicking stat
  • U 1800 Fomorian Champion Graphic has javelin, unit does not
  • U 1805 Long Handed Size 3. Intended, or should be size 2? Has glamour, but no stealthLugh doesn't hide. He has the splendour and the might of the sun.
  • U 1806 Fianna Size 3. Intended, or should be size 2?
  • U???? LA Mictlan Hero Cimmeru appears as if he were Quetzalcoatl but without magic.

Default Bookmark v3.10

VERSION 3.10



SYSTEM
  • SYS Resolution 1920x1200 The 1900x1200 resolution does not work correctly. Discussion threads are here and here Fixed in 3.11
  • SYS Mac patch 3.09/3.10 Mac Patch is apparently v3.09, not 3.10 Fixed
  • SYS PORTS The port input field on the second network connection dialog only remembers the first four digits of the port. Works fine for me /JK Wasn't listed on the progress page earlier and this is a very old report. I'll mark it green
  • SYS CLI 001 The command line options to turn off the fade-in effect (when going to view battle scenes) don't work on Windows. Trying every single possibility of "-f", "--nofade", "-nofade", and "-f --nofade" all have zero effect, at least on the Windows version. WAD, only affects windows

ITEMS
  • ITEM 101 Twin Spear (death) Does not reanimate killed target as it should (related to Weapon 296, which this item gives?)
  • ITEM 282 GatestoneDiscussion thread here Also somewhat related to traveling spell issues above in this thread. Astral Travel cannot be cast from Gatestone unless Thaumaturgy lv 9 is researched first (or appropriate level if using mods that alter Astral Travel research level)
  • ITEM 293 Soulstone of the Wolves See discussion link for Gatestone. Call of the Wild cannot be cast from Soulstone unless Conjuration 3 is researched first (or appropriate level if game is using mods)
  • ITEM 296 Gift of Kurgi Discussion thread here Looks much like the the Gatestone/Soulstone problem, unable to cast Send Lesser Horror. Not tested extensively, but symptoms are the same.
Gatestone etc works fine for me /JK
Did you have Conjuration 3, Thaumaturgy 9 and Blood 5 researched? Because I just ran a test game where I had the items assigned to commanders beforehand and with 0 research, you can give the orders to cast the spells but nothing happens. No werewolf and wolf pack in target province. No traveling via Gatestone. No lesser horror smiting the enemy capital. But if you have the research up to the levels indicated, THEN the items work. THAT is the bug.

A couple of bug reports that I cannot begin to unravel enough to put in shortlist format without losing info along the way:

SYS
Quote:
Nephelim said:

line 19 of patchme.command

cp Resources/doc/* ../Dominions3.app/Contents/Resources/doc

This results in a cp usage message, because a fresh (from CD) install doesn't have a doc directory to copy the files into.

I'd suggest putting the line:

Code:
[ -d ../Dominions3.app/Contents/Resources/doc ] || mkdir ../Dominions3.app/Contents/Resources/doc


SYS

Ionwright said:

This occurs in 3.04 in full-screen (G3 running 10.3.9), and probably in 3.06. If I leave the machine without clicking on the rolling credits that appear after the quit command and return a couple hours later, a click no longer dismisses the credits. In fact there's no response. A force-quit doesn't work either, and I have to reboot. (From a design perspective, it seems that a program should quit when you issue the quit command! Many Mac programs have a button in the About Dominions 3 window that you can click for the credits.) Most important, this shouldn't crash my computer!

The update process that requires you to move the application to the desktop and then move it back is cumbersome. I have the app on a different volume, so this means copying the file each time. Most Mac programs use Apple's installer, which can be set up search for applications and patch them in place.

Also, the Info.plist file should be maintained with the correct version, mod date, and copyright information. This information is displayed in the Finder with a Get Info command and in

Mac v. 3.06 (G3 running OS X 10.3.9)

I don't remember exactly what I was doing, but I think I right-clicked on one of the commander icons. The program quit without any message. The only evidence I could find was in the console.log file:

Något gick fel!
cltu: bad mnr
Något gick fel!

Mac problems are fixed in 3.10

Default 3.10 Items, Battlefield, Spells, System

VANISHING SCALES
  • VANISHING SCALES: The infamous and elusive vanishing scales bug from Dom2. Strages Sanctus has managed to create a situation where this issue is 100% reproducible and has included the relevant files. Link. An older report/discussion regarding the Dom2 version is here, but it is obsolete now. UPDATE! CAUSE ISOLATED! The Vanishing Scales bug is caused by a corrupted geotable, which tells the game what provinces are neighbors. A corrupted geotable will cause ghost neighbors, which cause the problem.
  • GUI Battle Marker on 1st turn Newly created games on both newly created random maps and old maps may show the crossed swords sign of a battle having taken place in random provinces on the previous turn ? on turn 1. Selecting the province and then switching back to capital or another province removes the erroneous flag. Bug is reproducible to some degree: Start a new MP game on a map (e.g. Cradle of Dominion), attack a province on first turn, host, view turn, end turn, quit, create new game on same map, crossed swords appear in the province where you had your battle in the previous game. Observed once, repeat tests not conducted. UPDATE: This seems to be related to the scale bug, hence moved here.

MODS & MAPS
  • MAPCOM #startspell <nation nbr> "spell name" Works only for 1 turn. This mod command is not supposed to be used since it cannot be made to work
  • MOD (monster/nation) Descriptions There seems to be a hard limit of 183 user defined description texts for modding units and nations in Dom3. Any more than that and the game refuses to accept new descriptions. Nation descriptions come after unit descriptions, which means that modded nations lose descriptions before units and units start losing descriptions starting from the end of the list. Spells do not suffer from this problem, since they seem to be using a different lookup table. (This report courtesy of Ich) Link
  • MOD (monster) Sprites: There is a hard limit of 110 new sprites added in mods. Any more and the game crashes. Unknown if 110 is a total limit from all enabled mods together, or the limit for how many can be included in a single mod. Discussion thread with testing info UPDATE: Link It seems like the sprite limit is determined by sprite size and quality rather than number of sprites. Above link has more information.
  • MOD Sprite Limits v3.10 Discussion Patch 3.10 breaks games with several modded nations due to sprite limits being stretched. Bug Thread Post

BEHAVIOR
  • BHV Reanimation Reanimation does not match the manual. H2 reanimators cannot reanimate longdead and H3 reanimators cannot reanimate longdead horsemen (#189) even though they should. Undead H3 reanimators can reanimate longdead horsemen correctly, at least a reanimator killed and coming back as a wight mage can. It seems as if at least the higher tier reanimations are resolved according to Dom2 Holy/Unholy levels, which were one higher, unless the reanimator is undead. Undeads are considered one lvl higher when reanimating. Not sure if the manual says.
  • BHV MERC Rozuls Red Raptors: No discount for EA Caelum. A discount would make thematic sense. Only one nation can get discount. Switching from MA to EA might be an idea.
  • BHV Turn Resolution Order Casting a ritual during the same turn as Astral Corruption is cast causes caster to be attacked by horrors even though Astral Corruption should only take effect later in the turn. Is this a legitimate issue, or is there a mistake in the turn order resolution description? The astral corruption takes place in the same instance it is cast, not affecting the caster but everyone else that has not yet cast any spells that turn resolution.
  • BHV Y-key Eye of God Still not as blind as it should be, details provided earlier by PM

WEAPONS
  • W 493 Sickle staff should be "Sickle Staff", both words capitalized
  • W 494 Bite sould be named "Poisonous Bite" on account of having debilitating poison like weapon 495
  • W 495 Poisonous Bite should be bonus, like other bites
  • W 501 Bamboo Rod should be length 2?

ARMOR
  • A 105 Hide Shield Should be type 4, shield, but it is type 5, body armor instead as far as the game engine is concerned.


GENERAL STATFIX ISSUES
  • U 392 Ashen Angel no undead leadership
  • U 393 Lammashta no undead leadership
  • U 547 Dead One no undead leadership
  • U 858 Jaguar (Smoking Mirror) goldcost 0 should be 60 to match other form, otherwise cost mismatch problems may occur.
  • U 1009 Holy Deep One no priest levels, should have H1
  • U 1753/1 Tuatha Warrior no forest survival, ALL other Sidhe & Tuatha have it
  • U 1792 Nemedian Sorceress should not have forestry (other Nemedians don't)
  • U 1793 Nemedian Queen should have weapon 7 Quarterstaff or 238 Magic Staff, not 9 Dagger (graphic has staff)
  • U 1794 Last Partholonian should have weapon 473 Golden Spear, not 7 Quarterstaff
  • U 1803 Uncursed Size 5 should be 6
  • U 1804 High King Size 5 should be 6
  • U 1810 Longdead Partholonian mapmove should be 3 like other human longdead
  • U 1818 Unmarked Champion should have weapon 21 Javelin, but does not
  • U 1843 Antlered One no description (probably something broken in the description file, substituting mon1843 for the monster name should fix this). Size 3, should be 2?
  • U 1844 Trainer of Heroes should have, but lacks: flying, magic (air & death), perhaps fortune telling (ref. magic and divination mentioned in description)
  • U 1845 Bakemono Chief no stealth, should have stealth(0)
  • U 1848 Mason of the Underworld Stealth value displays (+-10), so there is *something* strange with it...
  • U 1877 Renata Should have a secondary weapon besides 496 Sacred Pitcher, since that can only be used 1 time per battle. Suggest 92 Fist or 9 Dagger
  • U 1897 Feathered Serpent should have gold cost 50, because it is the shapechanged form of 1896 Lawgiver. Thus his pretender cost is 0 due to the cost mismatch. Should have Magic leadership 40 like other Feathered Serpents, currently has none. Morale should be 30 to match other form.
  • U 1894 Minister of Magic startage should probably be higher than 22
  • U 1895 Ceremonial Master should have fortune teller (3%) according to description, but does not. Startage should probably be higher than 22. No magic, should have H1.
  • U 1899 Fomorian God King should probably have precision 10 or 11 to not be too far above the precision of Fomorian King (9). Current value is 12.
  • U 1906 Rudra starts with old age (988/1000, which becomes 988/985 due to the 3F), should probably not.
  • U 1911 Defiler of Dreams is blind and still has darkvision 100.
  • Serpent Cult Hydras, wrong secondshapes and firstshapes


SPELLS
  • SPELL Stygian Paths still broken, cannot be used at all or causes strange behavior and kills all units being transported.
  • SPELL Dance of the Morrigans does not work. Broken in several ways. Discussion thread
  • SPELL Legions of Steel AI casts this spell repeatedly on unarmored units even though it requires a unit to be armored to work

Default Version 3.14

Version 3.14



ISSUES FIXED FROM 3.14 TO 3.15


ITEM SLOTS
  • Multiple slots of one type If a unit has three or more item slots of same type, e.g. hand or misc, multiple identical items will stack if they are separated by a different item in between.


SPELLS
  • SPELL Flight almost never affects caster, even when there are no friendly units. Comments by Kristoffer indicate spell should be caster only (?). Should perhaps be tiered in the manner of Quicken Self/Quickness/Quickening to give personal/small scale/large scale effect. Made caster only in next version ad spell Gift of Flight added for small scale effect
  • SPELL Rigor Mortis affects lifeless units such as gargoyles and living statues unless they are undead. This is correct according to spell description, but logically and thematically incorrect.
  • SPELL Internal Alchemy Increases age by 15 years instead of decreasing it.


UNIT STATFIXES
  • U 56 Forester Stealth 0 should be 5 or 10 to match other scouts, though unit does have patrol bonus 5
  • U 1018 Ranger Captain Stealth 0 should be 10 WAD, commanders only rarely have stealth bonus since it affects all their troops
  • U 1631 Tent Owner Stealth 0 should be 5 or 10 WAD
  • U 87 Demonbred Maxage should be increased to 500, since removing demon attribute makes them old and they no longer get maxage increase from blood magic
  • U 121 Demonbred Maxage should be increased to 500, since removing demon attribute makes them old and they no longer get maxage increase from blood magic. This unit needs the demon tag removed to prevent reanimation (prophetized demonbred).
  • U 1537 Demonbred (EA, assassin) Maxage should be increased to 500, for the sake of consistency.
  • U 739 Black Acolyte Has description of 740 Black Priest but no inquisition and no magic but holy. Whole description has been reworked for Ulm update
  • U 1016 Commander of Ulm Description has been fixed
  • U 1389 Blood Lord armor should be 18 Full Chain Mail and 20 Iron Cap, not 18 Full Chain Mail and 10 Leather Hauberk
  • U 1530 Kappa Mage Resource cost 0 should be 1
  • U 1531 Kappa Chief Resource cost 0 should be 1
  • U 1922 Grid Druzhina No cold resistance, should have 50% like other Bogarus units
  • U 1959 Deathless should have armor 158 Robes
  • U 1960 Exarch should have armor 158 Robes
  • U 1963 Bakemono Scout stealth should be 25, not +-25

WEAPONS
  • W 506 Plague Scythe should be 2-handed, not 1-handed

Default Issues fixed between 3.14 and 3.15

ISSUES FIXED FROM 3.14 TO 3.15


Magic site issues and locmasks were fixed in patch 3.14, but they have been listed here since the list was not confirmed before patch 3.15 came out

MAGIC SITES
  • MS 546 Forest beneath the Waves should be "Forest Beneath the Waves" (capital b in "Beneath")
  • MS 579 Wisperwind Tower should be "Whisperwind Tower", the h is missing from "Whisperwind".
  • MS 658 Spiral Chaft should be "Spiral Shaft"
  • MS 692 Forest of Amber Kelp Allows recruitment of gold cost 0, resource cost 1 air elemental (size 1) instead of requiring a nature mage to enter to summon them. This allows massing them up to recruitment queue maximum per turn at no cost. Or it would, if air elementals could survive underwater, so presumably this site should allow the recruitment of some other monster (573 Amber Clan Guard, 574 Amber Clan Triton, 575 Amber Clan Mage or 576 Amber Clan Priest, perhaps?) The recruitable unit is commander, so should it be mage or priest?
  • MS 693 Sentinent Current Should be "Sentient Current"
