User Info RequiredUnits hiding until really close

Is it only me or do your enemies units stay hidden until right in front of your troops, turning your artillery and marksmen useles? it happens every now and then ( not every battle).
I know that it's not the weather or terrain, since it also happens on flat maps with little to no hiding space.
Does anyone know of a fix for this?
Thanks in advance

    I've wondered about this as well... can it be tall grass or very gentle hill in the terrain almost unoticeable except to game engine? Only 1/20 battles this happens but it does seem a bit weird.

    This is apparently an old bug from previous Total War games, that to my knowledge was fixed, but it's cropped up again in this game. It was connected to linked Nvidia video cards, which I don't have, but it still shows up in almost every battle for me. Does anyone have a solution?

    Do you have a battle replay from a time when this occurred for you please? That way we can fight the battle and try to reproduce it :)

    Thanks for answering, i do not have a battle replay of this right now, but i'll save one the next time this happens.
    Loving the game fyi, already have around 85 hours played and the only annoyance i have is this little thing.
