Bug and Glitch List

Post  ichbinsehselber on Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:54 pm

This thread is intended to be something like a table of content for bugs and glitches. The details about specific bugs should probably be in a thread on its own. At a later step each point may get a link to some thread about details.

The starting point for this list is http://awbw.wikia.com/wiki/Glitches.
1.) Tag games have the problem that the secondary CO power meter often changes erratically and unreliably.(confirmed)
2.) There are reported issues when very high movement units attempt to cross black tiles (reported)
3.) Units cannot be moved into the top left corner of maps (coordinate 0,0) via black tiles (confirmed)
4.) In Fog of War, all players have vision of pipe seams, including broken pipe seams that are counted as plains. (confirmed)
5.) Ghost units glitch: If units are placed on a map without their corresponding HQ or Lab, they will disappear. On the places where they were, though, the space cannot have units unloaded onto it from transport units. If on bases, ports, and airports, then no units can be built from that property. (confirmed)
While this may be seen as a glitch, it has been used deliberately by many map makers as an integral part of their map design, but when playing a map that has ghost units please be aware of this 'glitch' If you pick a legitimate country and change to the country of the ghost units you may take control of them. (This is not recommended)
6.) Using a weather CO's powers may not change the weather itself, mostly seen when Drake or Olaf use their SCOP one right after the other. The mass damage will go through, but the weather will not change. (reported)
7.) Von Bolt's SCOP stun effect is removed if the stunned unit is attacked (confirmed)
8.) Do not use purple lightning country in fog of war games: Using the screenshot button in Fog of War while Purple Lightning is in the game, you see all properties owned by this nation (confirmed)
9.) In some situations it is not shown when an unit is short on ammunition. (confirmed)
10.) attacking multiple times per unit (probably fixed - see xmo5's comment below)
11.) Random weather bug: Sometimes the weather gets stuck in snow or rain when playing random weather. Usually an Olaf or Drake SCOP can reset the weather to normal randomness (after the usual SCOP effect) (confirmed)
12.) On very large maps normal movement can become unreliable. The problem can be avoided by using the set path command (reported - Edit: getting doubt if this bug really exists - the bug never happened to me)
13.) The boot and aet triggers do not work since the last server migration
14.) The logic for the matchmaking of the league does not work.
15.) Sometimes the awbw web site becomes unavailable. A manual restart of the web server (by amarriner) is required to fix this.
16.) In the user info setting the AWBW Theme: to Advance Wars 2 can produce some undesirable display effects. It is recommended to select Advance Wars 1!
17.) In a multiplayer fog game allied subs can not always be seen. Even when the subs are not seen it is often possible to guess the allied sub positions from the vision they project. And it is also possible to see their positions in the game / match logs.
18.) Sometimes (rarely) it is impossible to toggle the gridlines for the map in a game. When I obsorved this bug, a workaround to edit the parameter in the URL from OFF to ON fixed the glitch
19.) If your last unit is a black bomb and you explode it, it won't count as a rout (defeat by losing all units)
This glitch could be abused on those maps where your HQ cannot be captured.

if you have additional bugs or glitches to list, please reply. Also if you have additional information about reported (unconfirmed bugs or glitches)

This one used to be an issue with Sonja's SCOP, but to the extent of my knowledge, that was fixed a couple years back by Walker. I can't promise that the issue still doesn't pop up or that it hasn't resurfaced since the server migration. Also, if this is seen in any context outside of Sonja's SCOP, then I don't think it was addressed.

Just remembered this one:

The AW2 theme seems to have trouble displaying maps correctly. AW1 works fine.

Yeah, this is an important one (especially for newbies). Thanks! Integrated it in the OP.
