Fixed in 1.12.3/1.12.4 (commit), I just didn't find the original bug report in time because I wasn't expecting 'ellipse' to be misspelled in it.

I find that one way to reproduce this consistently is to join any game with some moves in it as an observer, using "quick replays". It looks like every side that is not the side whose turn it finally is when you catch up will have all of their units missing health bars, orbs, and elipses.

This is probably not very helpful since I am still unsure about how to reproduce it in a more deterministic fashion, but I have seen this happen with units in fairly vanilla replays I have produced in 1.11.9+dev/1.11.10 (from unmodified mainline campaigns) while testing other things.

I've tried reproducing the exact combination of unit, facing, and terrain that I see in the screenshot, but I was not able to reproduce the issue. Marking this as "Need Info", since we will probably need a semi-reliable way to reproduce this before the problem can be diagnosed.

It doesn't look like it's just an ellipse problem. Those units are also missing their bars and orbs. (I'm not the original poster.)

Do those units, by any chance, have a custom ellipse set in their attributes? The changes to its semantics in version 1.11.6 may result in issues like that with old saved games or custom unit types.

(You may check their attributes by using :debug :inspect, or saving a game and looking at the uncompressed text contents. Alternatively, you may upload a saved game here, as long as it doesn't require any add-ons.)

In the image, the two units without ellipses are the two units on elven villages. Is that always the case? (If so, I wouldn't call it "random".)

As the subject says, there are times in the development version where for an unknown reason the elipses of some units on a side are not drawn (see attached jpeg for an example).

I have seen this behavior in both single player and multiplayer.
