    • The Bermuda Triangle

      The Bermuda Triangle is a phenomenon that, based on my observations, is deeply rooted in legacy code. I can confirm to have seen it on the mobile versions of both Call of War and Conflict of Nations

      If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s a stretch of the Pacific Ocean where units “disappear”. Scrolling to it will cause most units on screen and their paths to become invisible until you move it back out. This is beyond annoying when trying to make moves from Asia to America or vice versa. It becomes difficult to see and command your units across the Triangle. As far as I’m aware this issue has existed since the Bytro engine was created, and it does not appear on PC.

      I can already tell it’s a legacy code nightmare, but this issue in addition to the horrible radar radius visualization can make the mobile versions of these games painful to play. If you haven’t seen this issue, command units around the missile of the Pacific, otherwise I may be able to provide a video

      Here are two examples I could get from my running games:

      youtube.com/shorts/aKzrzxWeJI4?feature=share

      For the first one, I cannot select those bombers at all. They are physically un-selectable, and if I had to turn them around in an emergency I couldn’t. I also cannot see where they are going

      For the second one, I can select them but I cannot see where they are going either. They are supposed to be going to Northern Europe but all I can see is their ocean path

      The area of the glitch is strange. It may not be consistent and may be different for different people

      I can observe that it runs from the East coast of Japan, to the East coast of New Zealand, to the point directly East of New Zealand and South of Hawaii, up to the channel between Alaska and Russia and then back to Japan. It doesn’t seem to have a definite square shape to it as it would have made New Zealand unplayable

      I recently experienced the same “visible but can’t use” glitch when I patrolled a bomber over Guadalcanal. I could see the unit icon when I zoomed out but if I zoomed in … poof, gone. I just assumed that the pilots left their radar signal hoping for rescue but I didn’t dare declare war on the aliens. Unheroic perhaps but hey, the rest of mankind had been placing embargoes on my grape juice :thumbdown:

      I don't know what that crap is, but it isn't a screen shot. Post pic here, doofus.

      It’s a video of the issue I described. I don’t think you understand. It’s something you observe as you scroll around the screen, I can’t just screenshot it unless you want to see a screenshot of empty ocean, and then a unit afterwards

      Well that link is to all kinds of videos except what you describe

      I just want to know where it is

      I’ve already stated it’s in the Pacific Ocean
      Also, does the link not work for you?
      Yeah, cause "pacific ocean" really narrows it down.

      And the link works as far as leading me to a bunch of random videos, none of which are con related.

      Not sure why the links don’t work for you

      The most specific I can be is Western Pacific Ocean
      That is the area where it happens. I cannot narrow it down much more than that
