hi bnc,
the game was crashing after the allies move in turn 21. looks like the same problem like floplop wrote about. i have the last patch.
regards, the_finger
I have a very powerful computer so that's not the problem. there are not a lot of units on the map so that's not the problem..there is nothing third party that is running that every conflicted with the game so that is not the problem.

Maybe you should try runnig the game with the "/nocache" switch anyway. While there might not be many units on the map, the map itself is quite big. It might also be the large number of active countries, etc. After a certain number of turns, if the game fills up more than 1GB RAM Crash To Desktop can occur, regardless of how good your machine is.

ATTENTION CTD

Guys..the crashes are most definately >> run out of memory<< issues...
hardware is not the major factor and no matter how good the rig it will CTD sooner or later
I save myself the time for giving an indepth explanation and this saves you the boring monologe and technical bushwa.. :mrgreen:
Use the new feature introduced with AK / Patch 1.11 and most probably you are good to go...even with 1000+ units
The "nocache" switch for the PzC exe.
without it anything above 350 something units will CTD if not same turn than any of the following turns

Alex was so kind to introduce this as some sort of provisional fix at last minute before AK release in order to make mods like PzC East playable at all....and obviously all other forthcoming bigger maps with lots of units too...thats pretty awesome dev support I say

using the nocache will keep the RAM profile low and avoids the game crashing cause it could not find any more contiguous memory blocks to store combat animations above a certain RAM adress cause of to many units of the map...PzC exe will CTD anyway between 1,x - 1,5 GB RAM usage (32bit Apps only adress up to 2GB RAM anyway so forget your 6GB System RAM...irrelevant, and if no contiguous RAM blocks are available the App goes bust no matter the real available RAM memory )
Open the shortcut to your exe and apply the following (image courtesy of VPaulus :) )

Well, now I see how The Asian Countries and Finland made it to WWI. I don't feel like I can use these graphics though. They contain pictures of the swastika and we don't want to offend anyone (like Jews) (WotW graphics, WWI are fine).

I will be releasing a "patch" or update for War of the World that will from now be known as v1.1. Hoping to release around Feb 1.

Change List:

- Edinburgh, Bristol, Rotterdam and a number of other cities will be added.
- Netherlands is now going to be split from Benelux. There will now be both Belgium and Netherlands as individual countries. The Dutch East Indies, though under the same flag, will be a separate country (no purchasing for either)
- Map Loop Removed - I don't think it even works. If someone wants to test to see if it does work, I would like to know.
- Prestige is taken based on country-sized regions, but will be able to flip every time someone new occupies the territory. Areas Where battle is taking place will be valueless.
- Less U-Boats are with the Kriegsmarine on Turn 1, but more come as reinforcements throughout the game.
- An attack group will come for the Germans to launch Sealion around Oct '40. 25% chance of this occuring.
- Chinese doubled in number
- Japanese now start with 300 experience
- Manchuria garrison set to Passive
- Borders will go in between hexes, rather than through the middle (thanks naturesheva!)
- Axis AI more rational with its moves (I know that it likes to behave in an erratic way)
- I may introduce Barbed Wire and a few other things.

More changes:

- Vichy will now help Germany (the units appear when France is conquered)
- More islands
- I will open South America up (An objective will probably be placed there)
- More objectives
- Better prepared Red Army (It won't fall in 4 turns!)

The game seems awesome....but still having issues with game crash after turn 21. Are there any other solutions other that what has been mentioned above?

As I've said before, I haven't had such a crash, so it would be best to use the previously mentioned fix.
More ideas I came up with for 1.1:

Vichy acts as a double nation, where if one of the 2 regions is occupied after France's fall, the other region will rise up against the attackers. Regions being Sth France and Algeria/Tunisia.

More USSR reinforcements that randomly appear once the country is invaded.

There is a 60% chance that if France falls by Nov 40, A "sealion attack group" will appear in the North Sea, to assist the Axis in an invasion of the UK. It can only appear on the Nov 40 turn.

If the British Isles are captured, the Royal Navy can be captured by the Germans.

A similar attack force will appear for an invasion of the USA if Britain and Russia fall. Also requires use of naval power.

More SNLFs for the IJN - for use in New Guinea and Solomon Is. A 3rd one has a 55% chance of coming against Australia.

IJA and Chinese in China will be entrenched to 4 or 5.

Thailand sides with Japan following Pearl Harbour. Not as another country.

Once Italy has been 1/2 conquered by the Allies, each of the "3 Great Powers" will get some of the Italian Navy. If one of these is dead, only the other 2 get ships.

Who allowed this onto the 2nd page of the forum :evil: !

Quick announcement: "Landkreuser" and "IS-3" units will be added in either 1.1 or 1.2 (the next patch) to allow more late-war fighting.

Landkreuser unit is the P1000, which will have 1 move, 1 fuel and 1 ammo, but its stats will otherwise be better than a Gustav. ~5k Prestige. Available around Oct 1946 for Germany

IS3 is a slightly stronger version of an IS2 that comes around Jul '45 for the USSR.

I really like these global/continental scenarios. It really adds a new dimension to the game. Haven't tried this one yet but I've downloaded and hope to soon. Thanks for putting in all the time and effort and especially for sharing so others can enjoy as well.

P.S. Love the Eiffel tower in the screen shots. Way to bring Paris to life by offering a visual bonus to the prize. Come to think of it, if I had a wish list for v1.1 - I'd say much more of the same. Something along the lines of the Brandenburg gate in Berlin and Red Square in Moscow (for starters) would be off the hook. What's that? Did I hear somebody say Big Ben? :wink:

You can see the new border setup, which was originally created by naturesheva for his MP global mod.

Landkreuzer and IS-3 will come in v1.2

Keep posting to find out more about the update.

I really like the new borders. A big improvement from the Panzer Fury markers, (which by the way I've been playing of late, and quite enjoying. Quite a nice European scenario, so thanks very much). :D

Good to hear you like the new borders. At this stage I have set March 15 as the likely release date for Kaiserschlacht (WWI Campaign), but after that I will have this patch off the production line.

Anyone who is wondering, This scenario is pretty much "Panzer Fury II" (with a bit more skill with the editor), but with an extended map. Originally I was expanding the map of Panzer Fury to include India and 1/2 of the USA, but got bored and added the whole Pacific Theatre. (WWI is completely unrelated here, just some random idea I had when thinking about my first campaign)

Anyone who wants to play something rather new, try out the WWI beta, which I brought out in December '13. Apart from a few sounds etc. this is a full campaign (until 1916), that ends with the Somme battle. I released the Brusilov Scenario as a slot-in if people want more fun in the East.

Looking at April 1 for this patch, but WWI has preference, so no promises :wink:

v1.1 is coming soon (probably just after WWI's release). No later than April 1.

The crashes are a result of the map's size - a "patch" won't be able to fix it.

Bump! (Being on page 2 isn't fun)

I have finally worked out how to destroy a 3+ month pain! The Axis AI will now not attack Russia until France has fallen. In fact, I made it impossible (the Russian border is now completely impassable until france is destroyed)

v1.1 is looking at a release no more than 2 weeks from the release of WWI (in short, April 1)

Nice.

Silly AI rushing into a two-front war as soon as possible... Glad you were able to put a little more 'I' into the 'A'.

Good news, but I'm still pining for enhanced city tiles. Massi made some beauties, just can't play without 'em. :)
