:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

In the 5th Prithviraj scenario, upon converting the first Raja, you receive technologies. I converted Bhima, and it notified me of receiving 4 technologies: Husbandry, Light Cavalry, Bow Saw, and Chain Barding Armor. However, only Light Cav, Husbandry, and Chain Barding Armor were actually received; Bow Saw was missing. I tried this thrice, and got the same issue all 3 times: the notification did not match the technologies received, and Bow Saw was missing.

: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. Select the Prithviraj Campaign. Pick “Hard” and default AoE2 DE (no mods). Pick Scenario 5 (Prithviraj 5)
  2. Start the scenario. Wait for the intro sequence. Then convert Bhina, the upper-left-most Raja. Wait for the notification of the techs researched.
  3. Click on your lumber camp. There is no Bow Saw researched.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The four technologies in the notification should have been granted. In particular, Bow Saw should show up as researched.

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
Bow Saw is not researched: (circled in the lower left)

Other screenshots about the current state, in case they are useful:

Chain Barding Armor granted:

Not applied to light cav (minor issue that’s okay - doesn’t need fixing, as this is often true for converted units):

Husbandry and Light Cav granted:

If the intention is for Hard mode to not grant all 4 technologies, please edit the message so that it’s not confusing. Thank you!

The other three Rajas are functioning properly:

Paramardi has all 3 notified technologies granted correctly. (Leather Archer Armor didn’t take effect on the units, but it is granted.)

Vijayasimha has all 4 notified technologies granted correctly.

Subhatavarman has all 6 notified technologies granted correctly. (Chain Mail Armor didn’t take effect on the units, but it is granted.)

No idea of Bow Saw is researched or not.

But one thing you have to learn:
Any converted or ownership changing units will no longer be affected by technologies.
You can test it by monk conversion or in-game trigger effect ‘change ownership’, they will never receive later technologies effects except some special cases like trebuchet, transformed rathas, villagers that switch different types of works, and converted rams and mangonels.
It is not a bug, just some game features.

This bug is mainly about the technology (bow saw) missing
You can look at the first screenshot — I circled the lumber camp tech in the bottom left — Bow Saw is unresearched. I can update it to show it more clearly.

Edit – just updated the bow saw screenshot. It should be clearer, now.

Alright, too much information makes me misunderstanding, just because you also point out the cavs do not be affected by chain barding.
