Game ends?

Post by Richie61 » Fri Nov 18, 2011 5:32 am

I have try playing MP games with this other player and 3 times for no reason the game ends? I don't have this issue with anybody else and he said the same thing too.

We have tried 3 different maps and it's always the same thing.

The game says "Objectives Complete".

Any ideas?

That is very odd. Who is the other player? I can try grabbing the file from the server.

Cheers

So it's not happening on the first turn? It just happens randomly?

And this is on different maps?

And these games do not move to the Completed tab (e.g. they are not being surrendered)?

Somewhere around turn 3 or so.
Yes, different maps.
Yes, they are in the completed tab. I always find them in there. I do my turn and when it's his turn - I find them in my completed tab.
I don't think he is surrendering. Wouldn't the game say he surrendered?

No - the feedback is a little lacking for sure. Ideally we don't want people to surrender - it's no fun never getting to complete games. That is my guess though. Perhaps inadvertently?

Same problem just happened to us, Killing fields multiplayer game with 11 turns remaining VPs 3:4 and the game just set 100% and 'Objective Failed'. I presume a German win although we only played a couple of turns. Very disappointing putting effort into that game which was turning out to be a lot of fun.

This must be a bug .. I hope it's only this scenario.

Sorry that your game finished when you were enjoying it. I'm not sure what might cause this kind of behaviour to be honest. I will recheck the code that handles ending games, especially in that mission.

Pip,

I have an off-the-wall theory .... Richie mentioned some corrupt games earlier, that needed removal.

So, considering the scenario ends for one of two reasons ...
(1) Meets script objectives .... or
(2) No units on the map when turn starts (either side missing units).

Maybe a corrupted file generates this problem ....
Maybe the replay removed all the other players units .....

I like to think way outside the box .... sometimes beyond my own belief!
