Losing names in the saves. And cheaters bug for 2-nd player

Somewhere happened when you have saves that not contain your name...

I not know how often it happens with 1-st player but 2-nd experienced it often.

Know if 1-st player sent his save to opponent it can be loaded.

But (!!!) at hte beginning of 1-st players turn 2-nd must be complete any exchanges between heroes chests for exp/gold and lvl ups.

At his turn he get extra xp/gold from chest another choises is not affect income.

But i not know appear that bug if both palyers have some language versions, it is only ubi or ubi/hamachi bug e.t.c...

You expereience that bug or not???

UT OH!!!

Other day I tryed to load my save with NeverMindSpy and he claimed it was not working that it said his name wasnt present.  So I sent him my save and had him put it in his folder. BINGO it then worked. So we loaded the game and he messages me and tells me that something weird happened on his end when he came into game. He said that his first entire week 1 replayed itself in fast forward in front of his eyes. Showing chests he took and letting him choose skills abilities etc all over again.

I just assumed it was the games way of re-syncing itself from moving the saves etc. BUT if I understand Ghast correctly, my opponent ended up getting DOUBLE of everything he did week 1 when it replayed? Once from when we played it....and then again when it replayed in front of him?????????????


I am hoping I just misunderstood which happens alot.

Not everything, but chests.

For example if he get extra 3000 gold and 1500 exp he can't even noticed that

However if he had originaly picked up 8k gold or 10k exp  that would make noticable bonus and boost to a week 1 army and building!  DOH!

We had a similar problem, but that was caused by having a different *single player* profile selected. Even if the player name in multiplayer mode is set to the same, it isn't enough.

Also, a word of warning: don't change your player numbers/colours in multiplayer. Games where this has been changed cannot be loaded since the load multiplayer game function assumes you are 1 and 2, ie red and blue. Typically player two ends up in the (closed) slot for blue player, and it isn't posible for for anyone to join the slot where he is supposed to be.

Both of these applies to 1.2

Hey,

- Well I have never experienced that myself, mainly because I play red. But I have had two games ( saved ) and one we couldn't fire up again because my opponant didnt have the save somehow and the other time I just send him mine and it worked like it should.

[EDIT] What if some of the more experienced players starts to post what to do and what not to do to avoid this obvious bug from occur in the future ? - Well just a suggestion

to do: use quicksave from time to time (F5)
this bug seems to happen only with autosave.

not to do: don't send your save to your opponent, because it seems that each player has its own save, and they are different.
If you download your opponent's save, you will have to go through all the choices exp/gold all over again

oh btw i actually opened an official help

on ubi tech support here's what i said:

Customer (id hl) 09/22/2006 05:45 PM  
Hello i was playing with a friend on ubi server - multiplayer and after a while he had to go so i saved  , everythink looked normal and i saved and loaded several times before, but when we tried to load that save later i got an error "you are now nevermindspy" (my nick ) "your name is not in save , please change your name to your old nick" ( something like that don't remmeber the exact words..) and we couldn't load it i've tried everything i could think of but i have no idea what cuased this or how to fix it since save files are not text i can't edit in my name , I will also point out that i tried to start a new game with that same guy we saved and load as usual  , please help!



And here's what they replied :


Response (UK Technical Support) 09/25/2006 04:36 PM  
Hello id,

In this case the only thing this could have been caused by is a corrupted saved game. I would suggest running scandisk on your system and make sure there is no system errors on your hard drives.

Kind Regards,
Ubisoft Technical Support

well obviously the guy don't know sheit if the file is corrupted then its homm5 that made it this way..

If you got this masage "your name is not in the game" then traing to load the game I am sure that you also got a server masage on the screen during the game. That said "player xxx disconected bla bla bla". If you save after this masage (even if all payers in fact seemed to be alright) that save is corrupted.

Yes, case when 2-nd player disconects and 1-st saves is present too, so better load from auto of 2-nd opponent (Anyway it make at 1-st player beginning).

But saves on YOUR machine, that not contain YOUR name it is nonsense

its nonesense that both players need to have a copy of save on there machine.  And also that you need to have copy of map in your files for saves to work. Ran into trouble of having a save on map version 1.2  and then 1.3 version of map comes out so I update .....then the 1.2 save wont work until I put 1.2 back on. I really wish that the makers of these games actually played them in real life.

he-he i like that need to have map copy.

In HOMM4 i heard about cheaters that change map, now that way is gone.

Also synchronical save is take less trafic, then sendidng saves in both sides.

And this technology can applay to simultanious turns, i wish on 1-st game stage (for example 1 week on Peninsula, 2 on Neighbours e.t.c.)

But it still BUGGED

NeverMind---


I think its because you manually leave UBI after game gets going. You must stay in UBI servers all during game. So when you manually leave is when it gives the diconnected from UBI and then you have the save problems.  I noticed it when we played that you would leave UBI shortly after game launched.

The answer may be to late but no - I haven't seen that problem after 1.03.
