ML marking bug..

36 posts in this topic

Its starting to suck really bad. When i am the only person on my mission out in the tundra defending an FB and have found and EMS or something that needs to be marked but cant. I hate it. Any word on if this is being looked into or getting fixed for 1.31?

Does this only happen when you are alone on your mission?

I managed to mark out targets in my own missions yesterday. This was the first time since a year or so, so somebody must have done something somewhere (KFS1 finallt did some server setting changes maybe?).

Before yesterday was I only able to approve targets in my own missions, and mark targets only when I joined others missions.

Interesting.. No i cant mark if i am ML ever. If someone else is on my mission i just make them ML so i can. It always says "submission invalid". Hopefully they fixed it if it worked for you yesterday. Ill have to give it a try when i get home.

How can i possibly do it wrong.. Are you on a mac? I use a macbook pro if it matters.

For whatever reason it works for some people and not others. I've bugged Ollie about it a number of times. I shall do it again.

I have this bug too, it is very annoying..... VERY.

However, once and only once, I was able to post missions as leader.... All other times I have not been able to as leader. When I'm not leader, all is fine.

Any status on this?

It is becoming a real annoyance. I am now able to post missions and often am the first one into a defensive city.. which means I am the ML a lot more often, probably over 50% of the time now.

Also, as the first one in, I need to mark the enemy.... which I can't do!!!!

This needs to be fixed.. it can't be that hard.

Thanks, delems

This is very strange indeed. As a Mission Leader can I mark targets on the map since a while back.

I can also post a mission description when I create a mission. Something I never have been able to do before.

However, now wont any added text to the targets stick. Before was I able to write a text to the target to describe it (like "Matty") to help identify one target from another.

Delems, you can make another player the ML (.makeleader "name") and hopefully will you then be able to mark targets. That's how I did before when I couldn't mark targets as ML.

It would be really helpful if I could get some of you to answer this quick questionnaire:

a. Can you mark? [Answer: Y for yes, N for No or S for Sometimes]

b. PowerPC or Intel? [Answer: P for PowerPC or I for Intel]

c. How many characters in your game name? [Answer: 2 to 10]

Please copy and paste the line from below that matches your situation to the first line of your response. I'm going to pull the results of this automatically, so the format must be exact and it MUST be the first line of your reply. You can put whatever you like below it, but this must be the first line :)

I suspect all the "No"s are likely to have 9-10 character callsigns. In which case, I've probably already fixed this bug in 1.31 :)

Yes, this is getting VERY annoying... I am able to post missions now and am often the first person into a defensive city... Thus I need to be able to mark the enemy... but am unable!

What is the status with this? delems

Never changed my game name.

Will try in 1.31, but beta does not work right for me.
