: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. I was playing gigantic map single player against IA in alpine lakes.
  2. I created severals monks to get many relics.
  3. Unexpectly, I just found a monk returning with relic making some moonwalking (walking backwards) as shown in the video.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

Any monk (with or without relic) should walk correctly, not moonwalking. But is a nice bug, I got some laughs.

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

(it happens in the interval time of 1:11:37 to 1:11:42)

the backwards walking is on every unit. there just something in the game causing this otherwise a minor issue as long as it doesnt happen too often.

this otherwise a minor issue

I know this is just a minor issue, but I prefer to give data to developers to get tis bug fixed eventually.

as long as it doesnt happen too often.

And how the “often” is measured?

Now with a monk without relic:

(minute 00:22:24 to 00:22:37)

SP Replay v101.101.61591.0 @2022.05.09 193517.aoe2record (8.7 MB)

This happens also to me with other units likes scouts, villagers, ecc., but not always.
