Unplayable...

Post by Amnese » Fri Jul 14, 2017 1:06 pm

I'm yet to play a game [scenario or campaign] without encountering a bug.

With the scenarios it typically a minor bug, the most common being a few random units rapidly doing constant 360-degree turns on the map, and not moving up with the rest of their brigade, but the normal brigade showing 'losses' when there are none.

But when I try to play a campaign, the game freezes constantly. The farthest I've got is turn 9 before a freeze. A few minutes ago I had a campaign freeze on turn 5. When I quit to menu and reloaded the game, it always quit in the exact same spot. So I deleted that and started again, this time I only got 2 turns in before a freeze immediately after the US retreated before combat. So in short, I can't play a campaign without it freezing and being unable [upon a restart] to get past that critical point.

It's really frustrating and demoralising to encounter this many bugs that prevent me from completing more than a few turns of the campaign, and in my mind, seriously damages the reputation of the publisher. Who decided to release the game with this many bugs? Did anyone playtest it? Did you just figure you had to hit the release date and so you'd iron out the bugs after release?

sorry about your issues,

do you have a save file with the advance after combat freeze?

save file location

you can find saves (*.wbts) in c:\Users\<user name>\AppData\LocalLow\Shenandoah Studio\Gettysburg_ The tide turns\

and any logs etc?

The output_log.txt can be found in your install directory ( \Slitherine\Gettysburg The Tide Turns\Gettysburg_Data\output_log.txt) (you'll need to add it to a .zip file for the forum to allow you to upload it)

thanks

I delete each previous game as it freezes so I can start a new one.
I've searched for the output file, but it's not there.

This is a joke...yet another turn 2 freeze. That's 3 campaign games in a row that have all frozen on turn 2.

hi, do you have a save file that you can upload with the freeze? I'll take a look at it asap.

The issue seems to be with playing full screen. I played 'windowed', and managed to complete a campaign [had to reload a few times due to freezes, but it let me continue this time].

For me the game freezes after exiting an Online game. After finishing my move and returning to the lobby, I cannot start another game (If I have more than one game going)...and trying to exit the game at this point (return to Main Menu, hit Exit) freezes the program and I have to close it via the taskbar.

I'm playing the Steam version, full screen.

Okey. Can't see any difference from before, but I suppose it's fine.
