DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
When I want to give sequence of orders to a unit, I use “Shift+RightClick” mechanics. And I do many missclicks. I still do these missclicks in every game, even when I am fully concentrated. This is the only kind of missclicks I still do regularly. Also I see streams of top players, and it seems, they do this kind of missclicks too, not so often as me, but it happens.
I tried to figured out, why this happens so often. I even thought like “it’s incredible, there should be some bugs!”.
It seems the mechanics is designed as follow:
There are 4 events: shift button down (sd), mouse right button down (md), shift up (su), mouse up (mu). And the game interprets my actions as I want only in case of exactly sequence of actions “sd md mu su”, when I by accident do “sd md su mu” or other variations, the game interprets my actions as “just RightClick”.
In game it works as follow: I press Shift before right click, but if I click too fast I do almost simultaneously up-actions, and it causes missclicks. Usecase is “make villagers properly work on wood/sheep, make villagers do some work AFTER building a house”. Cases “Shift+RightClick” for house builder worked as “just a RightClick” often leads to popblock.
I think, the mechanics works as designed, with no bugs. But maybe some other design would be more convenient for players? For example “intervals [sd,su] [md,mu] intersect each other” or at least “accept also sequence of actions sd,md,su,mu”.
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
For me it happens at least once during 10+ minutes game.
List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- Select initial scout.
- Press Shift+RightClick as fast, as you can. Do not forget to release both shift and mouse.
- Do (2) several times.
- Observe the results. Seems, some of your (2) actions may fail.
What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
100% of your clicks will add new order into queue of orders.
ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
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.
