Loading Freeze-Panzerkreig-Battle Of Kursk

Post by Spotlight22 » Mon Oct 28, 2019 3:13 am

Loading Freeze -Panzerkreig- Battle Of Kursk: During the battle usually after the player reaches the train station and the Russian reserve tanks are activated the loading screen can freeze and not resume or take so long to process the data it is uncomfortable.

You are not alone on this. I brought this to Shard's attention months ago but never heard anything back and my game freezes in the "Kursk" scenario also.

Do you have a savegame of the beginning of the turn that freezes or the turn before ?

I sent in two saved game files for this problem months ago. Shards acknowledged there was a problem and was supposed to send it to the Devs. Never heard anything back.

While I don't have the save game anymore it has been repeated in the past by my from older versions as well as the current version and I see that I am not the only one. I have brought, obviously the dlc and been a good customer of OOB would be great if they could fix some of these outstanding bugs that seem to go amiss for what ever reason with the game.

Sometimes it is necessary to insist to have a result, maybe it was not the right time at the time but I think that currently it is the right time for bugs.
With the latest patches, the performance has been improved. There is one of my own scenarios that did not work because of the IA (freeze), there were a large number of close units with the same AI but that now works properly.
In the Battle of Kursk, there are many close-in units that are activated at the same time with the same AI (Defend Hex), this must probably cause a pathfinding problem (?)
If someone gives me a savegame, I could test the scenario on different configurations.

On the other hand many others, like me, never encountered this bug in Panzerkrieg. I've played the last scen of that DLC multiple times, on some playthroughs I've even left some secondary objectives "open" on purpose. No crash, no freeze, no apparent trigger error.

Unless it's some problem with your PC/configuration (e.g. some old, slow rig with an unsupported Windows version or so) specifically, I don't see how this can be fixed without some savegame file making this bug reproducible.

I will do a test of this scenario but it will take me several days...

PS: it is a minor cosmetic bug that has no impact but easy to fix.

Maybe Rzhavets should be a Village or Town rather than just a Forest ?

Thank you for taking a look at it in any event, and with such a detailed analysis. Good spotting with those two map glitches as well.

It still freezes late in the game. Just played an easy scenario and it still just was thinking forever. But I tried. Oh well.

Then it sure isn't my unit. Never have figured out why it does that and I never got any answers.
Thanks, Terminator.

I just had a quick test, and it progressed fine to turn 29 without any prob:

This late it's hardly winnable anymore though because of the low kill no. for the Prokhorovka objective.

However this prob is extremely hard to reproduce for us.

Hello, I knew it wasn't going to be a win but tried to just play it through. If I remember right? It was about turn 27 to 29 that it freezes. I have no idea why and I have top notch equipment.
Guess Panzerkrieg just isn't one campaign for me to bother with.

It's sad I don't have my savegame on file, if I recall I only encountered the freeze bug when the two side cities were taken or at least the left one and it was in the campaign both times. Later I finished the game by playing the Kursk battle as a stand alone scenario.
