@Felizon89 and @IkoKnight8151

a game today desync’ed in blackforest with attached replays from at least 4 players (hope it is enough).

also, I was told a while back, maybe around half a year ago that it was an added feature that you guys could get all the other replays from just 1 replay, was that feature reversed? a lot of times players are random people and hence we do not have access to a lot of replays…

another game below

a single player crashed with mdmp file/save game, we restored then desync’d everyone right after.

We are now tracking this issue, thank you for the files and all the info :slight_smile:


alright so this problem is back after 1+ year. blackforest has a high chance of desync not sure why, higher than some other maps at least like arabia, could be the trees/units generated on the map or some other reasons

@Felizon89 or @DerRichterrr can this be looked into? again its almost impossible to relay on random players over the internet to provide sync file and I think a feature should be implemented on the dev side to acquire those files automatically.

Hi ! We are aware of the issue and we’ve been investigating it since it appears.
Those sync files would really help us but we understand that it can be hard to reach to random people met in the game.
