What the actual hell did you guys do to Scenarios?!

The modify protounit effect is still broken, you can’t modify damage outputs on anything.

Not sure how this has been broken since 2007, you literally had to download a mod to fix it.

Yeah its unfortunate that this is happening with Scenarios, I had opened a support ticket due to having an error mentioning “Out of Sync” however now the Scenarios cannot even be set up properly. I definitely appreciate some of the changes that were made in the latest patch, but it seems to have completely broken scenario modes.

On an aside, it would be cool if like some maps they have placed in the game they gave modes like Risk, Coloseum and Food, Wood, Gold official support as alternative fun modes.

We have a specific community that dedicates their time to Custom Scenarios. We have 2 Coloseums out and we have a Risk Scenario out but this update is preventing us from hosting games.

When i (or anyone else) try to host custom scenario it will not let player to choose civillizations. They have to use those that were set in scenario editor.

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Host probably any custom scenario
  2. Try to pick civillization or team

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:question: What was supposed to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
You should be able to choose civillization.

:arrow_forward: ACTUAL RESULT

:question: What actually happened (what went wrong) because of the issue you’re reporting?

You cant choose civillization

:arrow_forward:Conclusion

Best thing to happen would be to put option into scenario editor, that would either allowed or banned option to choose civillization. This way you can either let players choose they civ or set them one and becouse you can set even normaly unplayable civs in scenario editor than this would allowed for some cool new scenarios.

Hey,

After the new update, there are three bugs that I noticed while selecting custom scenario maps online:

–> As a host, I cannot select the “Free For All” option.
–> As a host or participant, I cannot change my civilization.
–> As a host or participant, I cannot change my Team (since I’m always forced to play Teams due to the absence of FFA).

This is occurring after the latest update and is faced by everyone who are playing custom scenario maps online. All other game modes work fine.

Please roll out a fix for this as soon as possible, it has been over a week since this has popped up. Come on guys…

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Go to “Multiplayer”.
  2. Host a Casual Game.
  3. Select a Custom Scenario map to play (usually I go with Colosseum as it is very favorite).

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Already described by the screenshot and the issue description I have shared. As you can see in the screeenshot, the FFA button is missing and while it is not apparent, I’m absolutely unable to change my civilization or Team number.

:arrow_forward: ACTUAL RESULT

:question: What actually happened (what went wrong) because of the issue you’re reporting?
Its simple, I’m unable to exercise any sort of control while playing custom scenario games.

:question: Include a OneDrive or Google Drive link to a SAVE GAME or REPLAY FILE (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue.

Also, let us not forget it is not possible to build home city deck for Multiplayer Scenarios.

When we select the “Home City Editor” within the scenario there are NO Cards to select.

Therefore, we cannot get home city shipments in custom scenarios.

This used to work fine in the Original game.

It didn’t work at all in the original game. Homecity editor was bricked and you had to edit the xml file yourself.

Please microsoft notice this post and update the game, AOE3 is different without scenario

Not true.

For Multiplayer scenarios it worked very good, and it is still working fine.
I have made many scenarios for Online play.

You have to use the Home City Editor from the Scenario Editor for Multiplayer.
There is no other way.

Yes me too the same bug ; great job for those who make scenario keep it up ; and hope this will fixed soon :slight_smile:

i guess i will keep creating scenarios in the old aoe3

Yes there is, editing the XML Files yourself like many scenario editors have done in the past.

Doesn’t work to me.

for some reason when i start a lobby of a custom map i downloaded the player civs teams and colors are locked to what the player data in the editor is how can i fix this

Why isn’t this fixed?! This online scenario bug has been out for more than a week now. This is sloppy work, really.
I am at the mercy of the RNG to come up with a civilization other than Spain whenever I join a custom scenario game. Ah yes, I forgot, no control over Teams either.
If you cannot come up with a fix for this after so long, then kindly roll us back to the previous version where we could play scenario maps like normal.

This issue is currently being tracked, thank you for the report

Yep, I don’t know what the f**k they’ve done, have made a risk scenario, can’t select FFA, nobody can select civs… so annoying.

If you plan to change it, please add a toggle for it in the lobby screen to force civ from scenario data or not.

Do we have a estimated wait time for this to be resolved? How long have you guys worked on this? Can we expect it with the next update?

Its been more than 2 weeks since this bug surfaced. And not even a mention of an ETA.
At this point, ranting is not gonna cut it, so I’m begging you guys to get a move on this.

It is not some minor bug that can be ignored and slid under the rug, but rather a game breaking bug that has severely impacted the custom scenario landscape. I never see a custom scenario game being hosted anymore and understandably so.
