Alith Anar Confederation Bug

SyrasiSyrasi Registered Users Posts: 2
I was playing as Avelorn in Mortal Empires on Legendary difficulty and confederated with Nagarythe. When I did the confederation, the AI Alith Anar was in his shadow realm unique stance. Once he joined my faction, he was entirely unable to change stance - the stance drop menu had simply vanished from the UI. The only workaround I was able to employ, since Legendary difficulty made reloading impossible, was to give him the boot as general and wait for him to become available for recruitment again.

    Well done for bringing this up.

    Update: Once his post-dismissal cooldown ended and I re-recruited him, he functioned as a normal general without his Shadow Realm stance. Not sure if this is as intended.

    It's the first time a subfaction does have a specific stance that the overall culture doesn't. Confederating him in this stance must have messed up the stance state machine.

    They will either to have an escape clause when such events happen, or maybe through scripting force him out of this stance upon being confederated.

    Hello guys its 2022 and this bug still occur TWW II but I have the solution to keep the army and debug Alith
    Alith anar stance menu not accessible :

    1 - Open Alith's menu (bottom left on his icon) and tap the little boot icon in the bottom right corner, you'll have to get an other general for this army
    2- Get an other general switch army to the alone general
    3- Diband the general that have the bug
    4- Wait few turns and recruit Alith again (225 gold)

    And there you go, enjoy ! :)
