What I'm saying is that the game captures the cursor every time I startup the game and/or toggle it to full screen mode. However, it doesn't always keep the cursor captured when the mouse is at the "junction" between two monitors.

I also tryed to describe this but wasn't that precise.

Could you make a screenshot via F2? Does it contain black bars?

Last week, the whole game windowed flickered black for a few milliseconds, instantly stopping any recording with Xbox Game Bar:

Also could you attach your system_info and hwreport (you might find them by paths from https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths#VistaWindows10)?

Attached is most recent of both: system_info.txt and userreport_hwdetect.txt

Is freezing reproducible?

As of today/tonight, seems to be no longer the case.

In other news, the Nisean Horses upgrade is still grayed out even after reaching City Phase as indicated in tooltip. Edit: The next alpha should have said tooltip explicitly require the Unlock Champion Cavalry technology.

Is that screenshot made via F2 in the game?

Could you try to switch to OpenGL backend?

 

I also found the following quote from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/gaming/game-bar/known-issues:

Quote

In many cases Xbox Game Bar cannot be shown when a game uses or Vulkan or OpenGL in full-screen mode. Vulkan or OpenGL games should use a "windowed" mode that shows a desktop-owned window border. Depending on video card driver implementation a game running in any kind of full-screen mode will potentially be rendered without Desktop Window Manager (DWM) involvement; this prevents Game Bar from showing over the game window.

So it might mean that the game bar might not work correctly on some drivers.

That's correct. Switched to OpenGL from legacy OpenGL ARB, still flickers upon starting to record after opening .exe/shortcut; but the .exe was in fullscreen at that time.

Interesting Microsoft docs quote, these may explain the black rectangles and flickering issues I have experienced... never thought of those before.

Windowed mode seems to have stopped the black bits from appearing and disruption of Game Bar recordings in both default and legacy OpenGL options in-game.

More oversight for the Han; this is before @wowgetoffyourcellphone added syntagma formation for the ji bing:

In short, the same goes for the mao bing (spearmen) and palace guards, former cannot assume the supposedly Roman anti-cavalry and latter (along with Atlas-only dismounted Han Xin) unable to do the same. Is the latter case intended? Standards used are for the wrong civilization emblems too, in tandem with the incorrect formation animations.

Also, the Han sandbox starts with the imperial court building rather than the gongdian, which is the usual civic center. Clicking the court building initially shows outright the grayed out jun (III or city phase) upgrade. Unless you build the actual civic center somewhere to do the xian (II or town phase) upgrade, you can't with the chaoting per se.

Further, the mao bing also have a weird animation when carrying wood, walking if still wielding the spear:

Hellas random map is waaaay too bright. It hurts my eyes. Tweaking the sun angle just a bit makes it much better. On a general note, the sun should not produce overrexposed maps when at the zenith (which it does on other maps, too). There is a "sun overbrightness" slider anyway (which is at zero in this map).

IMHO, the install script (Windows) should default to creating a desktop shortcut (opt-out instead of opt-in). It is way easier to delete one shortcut too much than having to navigate through obscure folders to find the game's EXE file if you forgot to check it (like I did multiple times just now).

if we fix angle and brightness 0AD will look better @Stan`

I wanted to test some spear cavalry with their 2x multiplier and I noticed this: Hero spear cavalry still have the 1.75 multiplier.

I don't know if that is something "ugly" or not, but it exists.

Should be changed. But, honestly, it'll have very little effect since players rarely engage in fights with heros

Heroes are a regular part of my army, so if they're fighting or not depends on their role. (But I probably wouldn't notice the .25 difference.)

it's one unit gaining a balance against one class of units. that unit is also rarely used in fights and is only available in late game. It's effect will be very, very limited.

A mismatch between actual territory boundaries and drawn boundaries.

Oh, that thing again. Was confused by it several times, didn't occur to me it could happen right next to the CC.

When I moved on to the next enemy and did the same it properly decayed to that enemy, so I can imagine it's difficult to reproduce.

I'll have this fixed by Alpha 27. Not for A26, since it's in freeze, prepping for release.

The fix won't require adjusting the map, right? Instead, it involves adjustments to the model of the structure and its metadata? For example, add a stone foundation under the expected ground level of the structure, and/or adjust the area of level terrain expected for placing the structure?
