Replays are broken - are they still maintaining this game?

The last bugfix a month ago or so completely broke the replays.

It’s such a huge bug and yet the devs dont bother fixing it.
Lately AOE2 is getting no love… did they stop maintaining it?

They still.

replays are broken because they are maintaining the game. everytime the game data changes, old recs can no longer be replayed with the new balance

here is my understanding how recs/replays work:
the game stores the player actions and rng seed while the game is played
when you watch a recorded game, it plays the same actions again. but with changed balance some units now die faster, or create faster, cost more res etc. so at some point the game goes ‘something went wrong, these actions make no sense’

Dude - I’m not talking about legacy replays… you cant even watch the games you just played.

I’d still like to know how to not need 20 characters.

Test​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

I think maybe the zero width unicode char (U+200B). At least that was what I used for the test above

On other Discourse forums, you can do that with writing things inside <> brackets.

Example.

We are still maintaining Age II: DE. I’ll make note of this bug to our dev team.

Dev team already knew about this bug since few weeks ago and they even have a fix ready it’s just that they didn’t release it yet to public.
