Panzerkrieg - Demyansk pocket defeat on turn 7 - bug?

Post by rmattbill1 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:21 pm

The mission gives you 10 turns to open a route to the Demyansk pocket, and I'm doing so on turn 6. However, on the start of turn 7, I get the "Defeat" screen saying I failed to open a route to the Demyansk pocket. Replayed the scenario and the same thing happened. Am I missing something? Is this a bug? This after successfully landing the resupply plane on turn 5 or 6. Also, playing on difficulty "Easy!" (Playing in Steam on a Mac running OS Catalina, everything fully up to date).

If you lose either Demyansk or nearby Tobolko (1st objective is to defend them) the game declares an immediate victory for the AI, resulting in a player loss. Is that what happened? That would be WAD.

But it is difficult to say what is going on exactly, would you be able to provide a savegame of this. Then we could check it more closely.

Just as a point of interest, I have the same setup Steam on Mac Catalina. I played Demyansk just a few days ago and everything played out fine.

@rmattbill1

Would you be able to upload a save game from just before you get the Loss? That would help us identify what's happening

I took a quick look with the Editor and I found no bug that could explain the problem apart from the course of the normal game.

That must've been it as I replayed it again--and this time was careful to make sure neither city was captured, and the rest of the scenario played fine. Thanks!

Panzerkrieg is not my favorite DLC precisely because of certain Objectives.
