Experienced crashes with all three Space Marines DLCs when pressing the Purchase button.

So missing are:

Perhaps more?

Installed the base game first, then the latest upgrade, after that the DLCs.

Ok, 2nd try:

- Uninstalled the game.

- Reinstalled the Armageddon base game.
- Installed the Angels DLC. Update to 1.06 is required. Installed it. Runs fine.

- Installed Macragge DLC. Update to 1.07 is required. Installed it. Runs fine.

- Installed Untold Battles. Runs fine.

- Installed Golgatha. Update to 1.10 is required. Well, I thought, why not install the latest patch (v11012a)?
- Terrible mistake. Space Marine DLCs spoiled again, missing PNGs. :x

That reminds me very much of the reinstallation and update troubles I had with OOB. *sigh*

Part 3:

- Found 1.10 somewhere and installed it. Wow, now all Space Marines DLCs are working.
- Installed Orc Hunters
- Installed v11012a.
- Fired up the Macragge DLC. And yeah, it crashed! WTF!?! :mrgreen:

Well guys, I'm done for today. Maybe I'm just getting old. Tomorrow I'll patch the game with the 1.10 update again. v11012a obviously does not love me. :cry: :wink:

Short update in the early morning hours:

Half asleep, it dawned to me that I may have forgotten ... some patch! :mrgreen: - In fact I discovered the v11012 update.

Installed it. Tried it. And everything works!

Then I installed v11012a with the same result as ever. Missing PNGs cause a crash every time I press the Purchase button during one of the Space Marines DLCs. Now I'm absolutely sure that there's an error with this patch. I'm going to reinstall v11012.

Apart from this it would be cool to have a kind of patch/update guide for the installation process.

What I found out so far is the following:

- Base game.
- Update 1.06.
- Angels DLC.
- Update 1.07
- Macragge DLC
- Vulcan's DLC
- Untold Battles
- Update 1.10
- Golgatha
- Orc Hunters
- Update v11012

- DON'T install v11012a!
