Custom scenario issue

Post by Erik2 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:45 pm

I'm working on a (large of course) 3v1 custom scenario.
I have already ran it a couple of times in hot-seat without problems.
Went back into the editor to fine-tune stuff, saved and restarted hot-seat from scratch.
Now the scenario hangs on the (1st player German) strat-map.
I have seen issues like this earlier, I think adherbal performed some magic to fix it.

I have attached the scenario.
Thanks

I know you've been there.
That sinking feeling when your scenario suddenly goes belly-up after putting in a lot of hours.

Ituis a partially hypotetical German invasion of Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
The Denmark/Norway part is basically the historical Weserübung. The scenario adds additional French, British and Canadian (!) units that were planned for Norway, but never arrived due to Fall Gelb.
The Germans had several divisions in reserve for Norway if things went really bad. So I added the planned Luftlande div, and an additional Gebirgsjäger div and a regular infantry div.
The Swedes are set up with their peace-time 1939-forces (using Finnish units). I used US-units for the Danes.

This is a 4-player multiplayer scenario using regimental units. The Allied players have different primary and secondary objectives.
Player-1 is Germany
Player-2 is Denmark/Britain
Player-3 is Norway/France
Player-4 is Sweden/Poland/Canada

The three Allied players are not part of one team, they were over-all not close Allies at this point in the war. This means they may even attack each-other :shock:
My hot-seat tests were quite eventful with all the seaborne and airborne invasions including naval-battles. Quite fun.
I hope adherbal is able to salvage it...

Do you remember removing a faction while creating this scenario?

I may have removed factions between the last two saves.
I had borrowed unit types from Finland, US, and Yugoslavia.

I tried to add those factions, but the editor won't allow me to save the scenario.

It'll be fixed in the next patch. Your scenario and the bug that caused it.

Heh. I know this feeling too, Erik. As in "Whew. Thank goodness." :wink:

Yes, that was a big relief.

Thanks, Lukas
