So, I went back to my game to see what's what. I didn't solve your problem, but I did discover....that I don't seem to have any LCU commanders with an asterisk!
I looked at a bunch of different units:
Units at bases, or not;
Units in combat, or not;
Units with supply, or not;
Units at Rest, or not;
Units marching, or not.
Probably some others that I can't recall now. I just don't have any asterisk commanders.
What is different between my game and yours? I am playing stock WITP-AE, Scenario 1.
Are your commanders new, recently replaced?
Could the commander somehow be "out of his element?" i.e., an Army general in charge of a Marine Unit? Or at a Navy base?
Are your commanders Allied or Japanese?
Lastly, why hasn't Alfred told us the answer yet?
Oh Where, Oh Where has my Underdog gone, Oh where, oh where can he be?
Dababes lite. I'm playing Japanese against AI and all came with the units (33 in total) and they are all IJN. The asterisk also appears in tracker so that made me think they are not produced by the game. I've now checked the scenario design and it appears that all are a tuping error as the asterisk appears in they names.
Moral of the story, 'Asterisks arn't always perfect, they do make msitakes'.
