drexmod bug or ghostie found a way to cheat?

Postby Bogdan_xD » Fri Aug 17, 2018 3:04 pm

so, i was playing some island game of 2v2v2v2 and at some point in the end of the game, i noticed ghostie in drexmod's HUD being in age XV.

in EEC , XIV is the latest age ( Nano Age ) while XV is Space Age from AoC.

here is when he was still in XIV : https://www.twitch.tv/videos/298514641?t=01h07m22s
1-2 min later in drexmod's it appears to be XV.

Also every saved game after he enters XV, crashes while all the ones before that, are loading completly fine.

Is there any tool to read the results of a saved game?
here's the latest save game right before finishing the game: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oprm0b3aehgkmsg/AutoSave%202018.08.17%20-%2021h.37m.38s.ees?dl=0

Looks strange, though judging on how I know ghostie, I rather wouldn't expect him to come up with an exotic cheat. Was there any advantages for him during the game? EEC has no space age implemented, so I would rather think it's some bug, related to the mod. Maybe you should ask drex about this issue, he might know more.

ye, waiting for an answer for him

also yea, there's no advantage for Space Age compared to Nano.The only thing i can think off would be Zeus II which does exist in EEC.But that's pretty much it.

Most likely just visual.

It's not a drexmod bug, believe it or not, Ghostie is actually evolved to the space age at 2:42:15!
I do not know what advantage he could give from the space age, but the game crashes if you want to see the stats charts! precisely because EE does not handle the space age.
Notice also that at the same time, the Hud score jump +500, which could represents a glitch about +4000 iron / gold.

Very strange! If possible, please keep an eye on that behaviour. If it happens again, it might be intentional which would smell like abuse...

even if it's abuse, the fact that you can copy stuff from AoC to EEC, is really something to question about.

Imagine if you can copy the files that allow the Power Civilizations ( the ones that cost a lot of civ points ) into EEC.Some of those things are mostly related to game mechanics( 7miners/insta town center/gold&iron inter trade) and not game objects ( like priest towers/ missle bases)

I loaded game in scen editor and it said ghostie was in nano. I then brought out my laptop and loaded the game as ghostie, again he was in nano. I even looked at his civ and there was no hex civ points. So from what I can tell there is nothing proving he is in space age becides drex mod.
