  • BUILD #: 40874
  • PLATFORM: Steam
  • OS: Windows 8.1

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

Start a game, open Tech Tree (It also works on Statics/Achievements screen). Make rage quit (Alt+F4) then click “No”. If you do this it enables shortcuts Right Top buttons. I use HD hotkeys so when I press F10 it opens menu on top of your screen. If you click Options then Back to your screen again buttons will be appear in Tech Tree. Although in Statics/Achievements screen you can see all of in-game UI (minimap, resources etc.)

Second little bug is in scenario editor in editing players stuff, select gaia. Then save the game. Gaia can’t use somethings players has (name string id etc.) when game saved it appears and it’s useless boxes which does nothing.

I can confirm this issue still exists on the January patch, the latest version @GMEvangelos

Reproduction Steps:

  1. Open a standard game
  2. Open the Tech Tree View inside the game
  3. Press ALTF4
  4. A pop up window appears asking “do you really want to quit”
  5. Select “No”

At this point, you are able to use any hotkey you want, for example using your Go To Town Center hotkey, or the Menu hotkey, while still being shown the full tech tree menu.

  1. Press the Menu Hotkey while in the tech tree (for me its F10, the default one)
  2. Menu opens, while still being inside tech tree view
  3. You can select stuff, for example press Options
  4. The screen will look like the screenshot below:

You can also do it with the Statistics menu.

  1. start a standard game
  2. resign
  3. go to statistics
  4. press ALTF4
  5. answer no on the pop up
  6. game looks like the screenshot below:
