Kull -> Pilot Request - Yes/No Box Display Bug (Please confirm) (12/13/2012 6:08:38 PM)

I don't want to bother Michael with this unless it's real, so if others could please confirm, I'd appreciate it!

(Playing as Japan vs. AI, Scenario 1, Beta 1120b)

- Pick any air unit
- Set the source of new Pilots as "Replacements"
- Click the "Request Veteran" button
- In the window, select any pilot on the list and you get the "Yes/No" Confirmation box
- The Box graphic is missing, although the text is present and the yes/no buttons work:

By contrast:

- Pick the same air unit
- Set the source of new Pilots as "Reserve" ("Any" and "TRACOM" also work)
- Click the "Request Veteran" button
- In the window, select any pilot on the list and you get the "Yes/No" Confirmation box
- The Box graphic appears and everything works as it should:

If you reboot the computer does it continue to occur?

Yes.

Edit: As a partial check, I loaded the game on a different computer and had the same display issue. So it's not related to game settings or cpu or even operating system.

Good try though. I have a similar recuring problem that can be fixed that way.

Kull,

I have the same problem. I think it started around beta 1120a, give or take one beta.

I don't seem to have the problem.
But I noticed on the screen shot above that it says "Assigned to 3rd Sentai" but doesn't show the second line "Transfer to 4th Sentai" like the next one did.

I'm wondering if the second line is somehow overflowing and causing some error in the display engine.

If it can be produced, can you send me a save and how to reproduce it?

Sure! As noted above, I'm playing as Japan vs. AI, Scenario 1, Beta 1120b. Start up the saved game, go to Kobe and select the 4th Sentai (Nate), makes sure the pilot source is set to "Replacements" and then click the "Request Veteran" button. Pick any pilot from the list of choices and you should see something identical to the picture in my first post. Thanks!

Yep, just as I suspected. The 'to group' name wasn't decoded so was wiping out the rest of the display data.
Only shows up in the release code, and not my debug code.

Will fix in next build
