[ok] Giving the CEO a raise whacks the bonus
« on: September 15, 2016, 01:03:34 PM »
So, as a serial overpayer of CEOs and one that even decided to base in SIN for GW1 for the main purpose of getting the #1 CEO pay achievement unlocked just to have the rug pulled out from under me with the new rubbish related to flatlining CEO pay across all airlines and instituting the bonus scheme, I was shocked to see how far down in the rankings I had fallen in GW1 as I was giving my CEO a regular raise to keep up with inflation. When the new "feature" to keep me from reaching the #1 CEO pay achievement was implemented, I added the maximum bonus parameters to each of my game worlds. In GW1, I noticed that I did not seem to have a bonus set. I then checked GW2 and GW3 and found a similar thing. It was odd as i was fairly sure when I gave CEO raises in the past that the bonus stayed untouched.

So, I tried it out to see -

1. Set CEO bonus.
2. Give CEO a raise
3. Save
4. Observe CEO is no longer eligible for bonus
5. ....
6. No profit

I'm going to go cry in a corner now that I'm probably 18 months away from having a minuscule hope of earning that achievement.

Actually, my steps were not correct to reproduce the error as I was looking at the place where wages are set rather than the place where wages are totalled out at the top of the screen. Therefore, my observation changes to the following:

At some point since the CEO bonus feature was introduced, there was some sort of change made to the game and/or underlying data in a manner that impacted the configured CEO bonus level and reset it to zero.

Signed, the crying former #1 paid CEO of GW1 that will never catch up now.

It has, for some reason, stored multiple entries of the bonus setup to the settings database, while there should be only one per each airline.

Reset the bonus once to be sure it's working. So for example disable it (set trigger to 0% and amount to "disable"), and then set it right back on again.

I assume that a request for CEO back pay will be declined? If not, where should that request be filed?
