Mist area transition bug
« on: June 10, 2023, 12:08:13 PM »
I was walking around the mists and went into a mist tile with only a N and S entrance, the N tile would send you through two transition screens and loop you back into the same time's N entrance but the S tile worked fine essentially creating a one way street and trapping me.

Would you have a screen shot of the mini-map for the area you are trapped in? That would help us zero in the problem.

Some Mist transitions turning you around as soon as you go in

Some Mist transitions turning you around as soon as you go in. The moment you load in, they immediately send you right back to the map you just came in from. I have no idea if this is intended functionality meant to represent a one way transition or a bug. Just reporting it here.

Nope. Do you have time to see the other area before it pushes you back? If so, screenshots would be helpful.

Alright, I'll try to document it a bit more thoroughly if it happens again.

ah sorry I logged and didn't think to take a screenshot of the map.

It was a tile with only 2 transitions one N and one S when I encountered it, it used the normal mist and rock/stone path assets.

If I run into the tile again I'll take a screenshot and update.

I fear that wont suffice to narrow the issue, please submit as many facts and screenshots as you can if this reoccurs.

OK, here's one.

I was on a regular Mist tile, blocked off to the west, Barovia to the south.



I tried to go east, which was a Mistway bridge area; as soon as I load in, I immediately get bounced back. I don't have time to take screenshots in the Mist bridge area, as soon as it finishes loading, I start loading to go back from where I came.

Got Indy to help me investigate. He mentioned his DM enter tool didn't work on the transition, but he could cross it without bouncing.

I even managed a triple bounce sometimes: I enter, get bounced a first time when I arrive on the bridge map, get bounced _again_ on the regular Mist tile, get bounced a second time on the bridge map, and finally land back on the original map.

The whole load sequence means that if I don't move after landing, my textures don't load and I am truly invisible.



Not sure if that's related to anything, could just be a side-effect, but I don't know.

Same thing, this time from a Mist bridge section, to another Mist bridge section.

The commonality appears to be that the targets are Mist bridges.

ran into the tile again https://imgur.com/a/J1VPsgT
seems only the North transition is bugged as you can exit out the south without issue, when you try to exit out the North you get a loading screen then after a split second you get another loading screen and it pops you back at the North transition


edit: the bug occurs regardless of where you entered the tile from

edit 2: had the same issue exiting west out of this tile https://imgur.com/a/cQzYBuq

I found this just now, 06/11/2023 during my loading screen and brief flash of the map I believe it to be the misty mountains again, I believe the transition added from previously lacking them might be where you are coming in on and quickly putting you back out.

The transition in the video does indeed look like the mist mountains

I just encountered the bug as the first transition into the mists from the mist camp and grabbed the following screenshot before I got booted back to another loading screen

It looks like SageOfTheAether's theory might be right and the bug has to do with entering the mountain tile that was added

I tried to get into the basement of the new chapel added for closured PC's and I could not because there was no transition on the door to the basement.

Yeah I noticed that too. I've already submitted a fix for that. Should be live on next update.

We've tried to fix transition bugs. Let us know if they still occur.

Went for a run around, kept getting boomeranged between areas.
Would switch between loading screens of the two areas then spit me out where I came from. 2/3 load per area screen before landing.

Was between a woodland and the eternal order chapel.
(Kudos on new mist areas!)

When you are spit out, is this happening systematically or just intermittently?

Has it occurred for other areas? Or just when trying to access the new areas? (the chapel, the pillars, or the 4 generic mountain areas?)

Is only from the same woodland area that the transition bug occurs?

Seems to just be the chapel

Previous reset I came in from a wooded area, it spat me back to origin. East->Chapel
Same this time, though I came from a different wooded area. North->Chapel

Systematically, this time just one time loading screen instead of multiple as last time.
