icon Aurora's identity crisis (0)  
The script that covers up the soldier in GatEB, The Roach Pits, 1W is having issues with the way image overlays are handled. Undoing a move causes Aurora to disappear, exposing the soldier underneath, and doing it on the move she steps south causes her to stay on the south square with the soldier to the north. This is one of the reasons I originally did this with "ghost display overhead."

But now there's also a problem with using my version of the code. I checked the hold where I scripted it, and now the overhead characters are randomly switching between displaying properly, and being drawn under the soldier/sword. These switches happen at random points in real time, not whenever a move is made.

At least, these bugs are present in the steam version. So, I guess either way, the fix is going to have to update something in the actual game engine instead of just the hold. And I'd like to once again point out that "ghost display overhead" doesn't have issues with inconsistent brightness.

Is this in GATEB or a hold you have made?

I'm the original author of the script that covers up the soldier, and the hold that I made it in has the second bug. Somewhere in the process of putting it in GatEB, it was modified into a version where the first one manifests.

Actually, RabidChild authored the script we used in GatEB 5.0. You just happened to propose a similar fix at around the same time.

Let's not get distracted by my lack of bragging rights, the point is that both methods are bugged in their own unique ways.
