[3.0 B8 HF1] Highlight Visitors option turn off itself randomly - Fix in a build after 3.30 release.

Not Beta 8 specific bug, as it is present since Beta 7. I don't know whats trigger it, but the "Highlight Visitors" filter in the map turn itself off randomly.

The Highlight Visitors defaults to false on load game. It is probably not saved.

It is saved in the config.xml in your game folder under My Documents. It should also default to true.

I could not reproduce it resetting for me. What exact steps are you taking? Also if you can check your config.xml file to see at what point exactly it changes, the option is called: <highlightvisitors>

I'm sorry, but it no longer happens.

Save/Load game.
Stop/Start programm.
Opened many menues.

It appears that the change (hightlightvisitors=true) does not happen upon restarting of the game. It seems to only take effect for new visitors, not the ones currently in the game.

Ok, I did some more testing:

(1) Use vim to edit the config file, and change highlightvisitor=true. Save the file.
(2) Start the game. Once the game has started, check the value in the config file, still "true".
(3) Save the game. Check the value in the config file. The value is now overwritten (possibly from the save game) to false.

The only way to fix this is to edit the save game file and change the value!!!!!!!!!

I take it back! That value is not in the save game file.

The only thing I did out of the norm is to have "Steam Cloud Save" disabled. Will turn it back on to see if that fixes it.

You edited your config file. That is definitely outside the norm.

So how do I change that value to true in the game?

Map -> Filter Settings -> Think Filters -> Highlight Visitors. Please be aware that the difference will be less pronounced if you have the option "Show faction colours" selected, as the faction color of visitors is yellow.

To know, It’s been almost two months since 3.3R, It’s so silence.
It seems the good news is on the way, have we entered 3.5 beta?
