I must be missing something but where do you click to get the bios of units/officers that have *'s?

For officers that have the BIO tag on their portraits you can right-click on the portrait to open the bio.

That does not seem to be working for me. I have tried both portraits both right and clicking.

That's unusual. Is anyone else having this problem with the commander biographies? Which commanders have you tried this with?

Which scenario is that? I'll see whether I can duplicate this.

Knowing the scenario would help. I suspect that this is an additional problem caused by something I did in the Williamsburg OOB files involving arrival times for reinforcements, which has been fixed in 1.03. So if anyone sees this AFTER installing 1.03 please report it. Otherwise, I'm going to assume that I fixed the missing bios problem just as inadvertently as I (may have) caused it!

So how widespread is this problem? I can't tell if the lack of "Yeah, I'm seeing this too" posts means others aren't seeing it too, or simply have nothing to add regarding the matter.

Just an update from me.
The Bios seem to work fine for a while then they just stop popping up. If I restart the game that fixes it for a bit.
Any scenario, doesn't seem to be related to a particular one.
Windows 8.1, 8 Gig RAM i5 laptop.
Really sorry cant be more helpful.

select the commander you want to view, then once it's been highlighted, right click on the bio you wish to have shown, on some zoom levels for some reason it doesn't always work, but by altering the zoom level which makes you right click more accurate it does, well it has for me, and i've checked all battles, but not all missions etc as yet but so far only found one to be missing, which will be fixed asap.

if you can check it will help, as i don't think it's a bio issue, just a right click zoom one imo, but then again could be wrong, it wont be the first or last time either tbh

please check and let us know, as i can't reproduce the error at all, but have noticed on max zoom on and max zoom in it's harder to select and show, but a slight zoom either way fixes it for me at least...

can confirm mill springs and Williamsburg & Wilson creek standard doesn't work so that's one to fix all bio's in

so either something in the patch of code has stopped this is the latest beta patches, but will be sorted and fixed..

I'm playing Williamsburg standard. I can get Longstreet's bio but not Anderson's even when selected.

now members are saying which ones aren't, when they all did before, it won't hopefully take long to fix, all worked on release, so maybe a bad patch somewhere or a line in the code missed, i'm sure they will fix it soon enough as they are a great team working on it

I checked all the BGs in Williamsbuurg standard. The only Confederates missing were Anderson, Stuart and Colston. However, none of the Union commanders had bios.

It seems the game is incorrectly showing the BIO tag for some generals who don't actually have biographical data. I'm testing a fix for it.

Some things in Union Manasas are odd:
Hunter
Porter's bio shows Hunter's
Burnside shows Hunter's
Hentzleman shows McDowel's
Franklin shows Hentzlman's

Only Holmes is missing for the South

Thanks for the additional reports. In the next few days there will be a new beta patch that should fix this, so please do not trouble yourselves with further reports about missing bios.
