lol.. cel you're a funny guy.
eq honestly it does look a bit odd. i just want to call you retarded because you always call me retarded.
1) The hall at 5 disappearing the first .25 seconds the video started seems normal to me. He cancelled hall at 5. it disappeared even though it was in fog. that's normal.
2) the hall re-appearing 1/4 of the way though the video @5. without being explored is definitely a bug. I'm assuming it was rebuilt.. but it still seems like too much time elapsed for it to show up on mini map.
3) the ogres kill a peon at s5, on their way to 5.. so the hall was cancelled by yellow again because he knew u8 ogres were on their way to 5. im pretty sure as soon as yellow cancelled the hall that time, it should have disappeared from the mini map.. but it didnt.
4) just over 1/2 way through the video u8 brings the view finder to 5 o clock.. the hall is still showing up on the mini map (even though it was cancelled again) ... and u8 even sees the first phase of construction of the hall at 5 through the fog of war. to me that seems really strange.. because it doesnt look like he had any units around in the time frame needed to know that it was being re-built.
so to me there were 2 odd things that happened... where the timing of the fog doesnt seem to match up with what's being displayed on the mini map/view finder.
cel.. i assure you eq is aware, and has been aware of being able to see chopped trees through fog of war for at least a decade now. <3
something that not everyone knows... something that ripe wasnt aware of.. and something that your eyes don't seem to automatically pick up on is: If your enemy kills their own building, a building that you have already discovered earlier in the game... it should disappear on the mini map BUT NOT disappear in the view finder.
When ripe is s9 he likes to kill his lumbermill and rush out. i watch for him to kill it on the mini map, but if i bring my view finder to s9 i still see the lumbermill there.
my conclusion.. maybe im missing something.. but it seems like a couple bugs to me.. and i cant say one way or another whether the bugs are just naturally occuring war2 bugs, or the result of some 3rd party modification.
As EQ likes to say: LETS INVESTIGATE! .. find someone as retarded as yourself and start trying to replicate it.
