Converted units do no change color in Thoros campaign mission

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: #95810 (31 Oct 2023)
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

In the second mission of the Thoros campaign, enemy units converted by monks do not change color when converted. See the screenshot, where I have 3 crossbows and a longswordsmen under my control, but they are still in purple, which was their original color. They behave like my own units, in the screenshot you can see that the units are assigned to control groups as well, together with other units. I also converted some cataphracts from the blue player during this missing (not shown in the screenshot), but they changed to orange like expected.

My guess would be that this is campaign-specific and has something to do with the extra scenario rules that ensure that converted Byzantine general hero units switch to a grey color and cannot be controlled by the player. However, the bug is with purple units and not with the blue units that the generals are part of, so that is strange.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)
    I think this happened to most or all converted units from purple, but to no units from blue. I only played the first two missions of the new Thoros campaign on this build with this new DLC, so I can’t say anything about skirmish or multiplayer.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

  1. Start the 2nd mission of the Thoros campaign (I chose ‘Hard’ difficulty).
  2. Create a few normal monks from fortified churches.
  3. Convert units from purple that roam around the map or at some point attack you.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Converted units turn to the player color, which is orange in the campaign.

I had the same thing happening today, same mission, with a purple crossbow. I would add the replay but apparently Im a new user which means I cant upload attachments

Hello @Pecunia
You can use to send the files :slight_smile: A rec would be very helpful and, if possible, a savegame from before the issue happens.
Thanks for your report :slight_smile:

Apparently this is a known issue by the team and they’re already working on a fix :slight_smile:

I don’t record my campaign games and I think I overrode the save game file already when playing the next mission. I hope you don’t mind too much that I don’t provide a game file, but the issue seems to be limited to this campaign, which I will probably only play once. And it seems to be easily reproducible and must be some campaign-specific game logic, unrelated to hardware or internet issues that would be harder to investigate.

Dear Dev,

There is another thing in Thorus campaign 2:

It mention " Researching the Fereters to improve infantry and warrior monk", but Fereters is imperial tech while campaign limit to Castle age only.
