v3.11 crashes with quick battles


Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded to 3.11 (and thank you to whoever sent the pack of ten smaller files to download).

 

Basic scenarios seem to work, although I haven't played more than a few turns, but every quick battle causes a crash - I downloaded the set from Mark Ezra from the forum page and the new QB numbers seem to be there.

 

Is this just me?

I have had the crash on quick battles  Like every on else on the conditions that they describe, CMBN,CW, MG Ver 3.11 Game engine 3     Lane

Yes it has nothing to do with Juju's tweaked UI or any other mods. That was just a coincidence that I tried removing that while also not using mixed force, so I edited my post.

 

After further testing it seems to have something to do with the combination of using mixed and letting the AI pick their forces. If picking their forces for them manually it seems to work just fine, but setting pick on auto or setting it to human and then using the AI suggestion will crash it every time. The instant the suggestion button is pressed the game crashes.

Are you on a Mac or a PC ? Does your copy specifically say that it is 3.11 ? The crashing with 'mixed' forces seems to be an old bug before CMBN 3.x. What version did you 'upgrade' from ? You may want to install into a fresh, empty directory (since with the 3.11 installer you typically have ALL of the CMBN files) and see if that makes any sort of difference.

I seem to be getting CTDs when I try to reload a QB in CMRT. I can set the parameters of the game and play a bit. But trying to reload a save of the QB after taking a break throws me straight to desktop. I'm running a fully up to date CMRT.

I'm having the same issue with 3.11 with Commonwealth.  I haven't done much testing, but I thought it was if I selected a mission parameter that the autobuy couldn't do.  For example, all I tried was an all armor tiny and it crashes every time.  I thought it might be because there weren't enough points to buy any armor.  Could be wrong.

I get these crashes constantly and it kills so much of the game.

I get them when German army is defender, US army attack, Waffen SS defender, all sizes of battle, all selections of rarity, auto select and user select units and preview allowed or disallowed... It seems to be totally random.

OK there seems to be a little corner of badness going on except I cannot reproduce it.  So, lets try to figure out the magic combination that is causing problems.  I am willing to work to figure this out.  Quite frankly I have never seen anything like this and know of no open reports along these lines. 

 

Number one I need much better descriptions of what you are doing that fails.  Start with detailing every setting you are choosing and at what stage it crashes.  Please.  You do not *need* to create screen shots but I find that the easiest way.  So for example I just started a QB like this:

Well, what can I say there must be some detail that you guys are not describing.  I am not getting any crashes and I am following what has been suggested here.  If you can make it happened reliably, or even a percentage of the time, please write everything down or take screen shots.  If I cannot present a reproduceable test case there is no way the devs can find the problem.

IanL,

 

Have had it happen to me several times and just crashed twice in tests.

 

Attack (Tiny), Medium Map, (Autoselect), 30 minutes, Open terrain, France, August 1944, Clear weather, Rarity Standard

 

US Army, Armor Only, Autoselect, No map preview, no force change vs Waffen SS, Mech Infantry, Autoselect

 

Crashes as soon as I hit Okay.

 

Regards,

Thank you for that specific set of steps. That worked find for me though. I don't think there is a coding bug herr. I have done it there times now - all good.

I think something must be specific to your machine somehow.

I double checked and and turns out I'd bought vehicle pack but not activated it. Now that I have ALL the modules it seems to work. However, buying all the expansions shouldn't be the work around.
