:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Using Save Chapter hotkey causes lag for all players. This is possible to do in ranked games. When someone uses the Save Chapter feature to make a quick jump point for replays there’s a small popup, a bit of lag and all my units get unselected. It gets really annoying when playing ranked games. Attached replay is from a ranked game where this happened.

  • Every time someone uses the Save Chapter -feature.

: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. Start a Ranked Game.
  2. Select some units.
  3. Press the Save Chapter -hotkey (F4 for me).
  4. There’s a bit of lag, a popup and units get unselected.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Feature disabled in a ranked game. This can be used to grief the other players. Do it just right and the opponent might lose a villager to a boar while luring.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

: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.

I know we should have resigned in this game because one of our teammates dropped. But this was the first time I encountered the Save Chapter shenanigans so I wanted some data and try to catch the moment when it’s used on video (so I could get a screenshot of the popup).

In this game the yellow player used it a lot in the early game so it wasn’t some kind of autoclicker doing it automatically. Can’t confirm it was always the yellow player as the popups were visible for a very short time and the popup doesn’t show in the replay file.
