Screenshot : The bug of the Year !

Postby IronWill » Fri Sep 26, 2008 7:32 pm

Hello guys !

Okay, you have been trapped here : there is no screenshot. But listen to this : I think there is a way for a very cool bug to happen on Multiwinia. Maybe you can help in proving it. Sit down and listen to the problem.


Once you have been eliminated from the game in a 3 v 3 or 4 v 4 game all your darwinians are whiped from the surface. But there is still a way for you to come back in the game... Can you believe that ? Here it is :

First wait for someone to - or catch yourself with retribution - a randomizer. Then once troops are randomized you will see some darwinians popping up with your color ! And you can control them ! If you can grab them quickly enough out of the randomization circle then they stay yours. Catch three of them and GET BACK TO THE FIGHT !

But here is the problem : it is very hard to get in such a situation, that is will probably happen in 0,00001% probability of lucky chances. But there clearly will happen something if you can get back in the battle and then win the game. WHAT WILL HAPPEN ???


IT IS UP TO YOU TO FIND IT OUT !

(... and bring us screens !)

EDIT : SCREEN BROUGHT ON PAGE 2 ! ENJOY !

I think you can also protect your last batch of Multiwinians with shields just as you are eliminated. But why would this be a bug? As soon as you reconquer a spawn point, you lose your retribution (I assume), so the only effect of this seems to be that you can return from the dead only to be kicked back into the grave immediately :)

Hey IronWill
I was in that game in which it could have happened :)
You can try it when you play against yourself.
I discovered how to do this an hour ago and made a topic about it

yeah this isn't a bug. You aren't eliminated because you have no MW's on the field. You're eliminated because you control no spawn points.

I've done it before, but if you're against someone who doesn't suck then they'll take notice and easily take over your spawn so it doesn't even matter.

That does not answer that simple question : what happens once you are eliminated and takes back a spawn point and then win the game ? Doesn't that sound weird enough so we may think of a bug ??

If you're good enough to do that, you deserve to win.

It took me a moment to figure out what this meant... ;)

Okay nobody cares. But I care to know if a sudden breach in TimeSpace will not happen at the end of a game won by an eliminated player. If I get the time to I will make you a feedback !

Actually, if your guys are protected, you do NOT lose retribution, thus this should be considered an exploit, rather than a bug. The downside is that you still count as eliminated.

How do you think the final result panel will look like ? ;-) I tried to get those randomizing crates for more than half an hour with 3 games controlled by myself but I got none. If someone can achieve the exploit...

I suggest a longer time limit.

I'd recommend trying to do it with shields on elimination instead.

That's my objective for today. :)
