wotreplays.org: Unintended consequences…
So this update has caused a few interesting problems to crop up, listed below:
- The (former) T49 tank destroyer and the new T49 medium tank are actually seen as the same vehicle; this is due to a very legacy way of storing the vehicles used in a match in the database, and unfortunately it’s come back to bite me in the ass.
- There is also an issue with translation strings, so depending on which one is first in a file, it may actually tell you that your tank is a TD and vice versa.
These are hold-overs from the very “old” way in which replays are actually stored in the database, unfortunately there’s not much that can be done about it without a serious code overhaul. Coincidentally the exact thing i was working on anyway, so… yeah.
But just so you know there’s some issues.
