Restoring a crashed multiplayer game against AI results in one of the HUMAN PLAYERS being shown as AI even though savefile says the human player’s name

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Host Multiplayer Game Against AI with friends
  2. Let the game play out
  3. Game crashes (in my case, I was the host, the game crashed for me)
  4. Game creates save file on one of my friend’s computers which is then sent to me to restore the game. (Copy pasting the save file into the mp savegame folder)
  5. “restore” MP session again.
  6. One of the slot has AI instead of my friend (Can’t even invite said friend)

Here the list mentions my friend avalokbb2141 playing as Mayans as PLAYER 2

Here his position is replaced by AI and I cannot even invite him or anything. Its locked.
