Mystery of disappearing Div commander

Post by hades1001 »

In my game, latest beta, April 43,

BGEN Noble A. was designated as the commander of 2rd Marine Div and MGEN Arnold Archibald V was designated as the commander of 24th Div right before the Operation Galvanic.

This two divisions took Tabiteuea on D-day with a total casualties less than 200. Unfortunately, after the short combat, the president of United States want to personally congrats these two generals' victory but failed to do so. They just disappeared, vanished in the air. These two divisions are now under command of much incompetent generals.

The two divs finished unloading in one turn, and don't have any fragments anywhere on the earth.

I suppose these two generals are too brave and get them killed during the first landing wave.

But my common sense told me this is not the case. Can someone tell me what happened? And I feel this is a game bug left from the era of WITP.

I'm seeing this also, with the latest beta.

Div amphibious commanders being replaced after landing with garbage commanders.

Irritating after spending PP's for good ones.[;)]

Michael is definitely going to need save games from the turn-before to track it down...

I've seen this in a few betas back. I didn't save it as I went back & reloaded the preinvasion turn & this time the correct leaders were in charge not the generic ones after the assault. I assume it's something along the lines of when a fragment becomes the parent that's getting corrupted sometrimes. I'm fairly active in invasions right now so I'll try to look more closely for it in my game for a before/after save.
