PostSubject: [FIXED] Chapter intro videos cause freeze   Sun Jul 14, 2013 9:38 am

I've finally started playing this mod and had a few games in the single player skirmish, which worked fine. Today I had decided to try out the "Chapters" but when I do try them, I encounter MASSIVE amounts of problems.

Firstly, the Knight prologue leaves my screen blank after it's over (either by its own accord, or when I choose to skip it) So I have to get windows to close the program for me and try again. Fortunately, after 3 attempts, the game decided to not bother playing the prologue anymore, allowing me to actually get into the map. But then I hit my next problem - before entering the first battle, I chose to "scout" ahead, which brought up a little window with Robert saying some stuff.......... but I couldn't do anything more, I could not close the window, nor could I click an anything else. I had to get windows to close the game for me.
So, in round 4, I tried the Knights Chapter once again, (and no prologue video again) and this time I chose to go straight into the battle. Once it loaded up, Robert began with his scene event BUT, as soon as I tried to click anywhere other than the interface to move to the next speech of the conversation, the game crashed to desktop! I tried again and again, and tried other things out like waiting a bit before clicking and even clicking before the scene event popped up, but when ever I click anywhere other than the interface after I close the first information message (that says my hero and Robert must stay alive), the game just crashes to desktop.

So I tried the Undead chapter. The game still didn't want to show me the prologue video, so I didn't see the Undead one, and didn't want to manually choose to watch it in fear that it too will leave me with a blank screen. Anyway, so I got into the map, played the first "part" where you talk to those 2 other heroes and then Lord Bane. All seemed well, till after that scenario was over. Because once I got back to the map, the new location that opened up wouldn't allow me to do anything with it, other than hear information about the area. (something about being built on a permanently frozen lake)

I doesn't look like anyone else is having these issues when trying the Chapters section, so what have I done wrong?
I downloaded the full 0.7.0 version, then applied the 0.7.1 patch, then the 0.7.2 patch. All these were downloaded from the same website - this one: warlords.battlecry.fr/

In order to advance dialogue on the campaign map (such as the scout ahead event) you must press SPACE or CTRL+number in case of a choice.

- fixed in 0.7.3. This was born in version 0.7.2 by modifying the hero system and not updating Sir Melvin. There is no way around it for now, since the dialogue implies selecting the hero. If you do not wish to wait for 0.7.3, you could just revert back to 0.7.1 and play it from there.

- This is not a bug. Before doing anything in Elenia, you must first recruit Setroth from the Realms of Death.

Glad that it wasn't something I did!

Oh right - Lord Bane said to do that! Even though I went back to the Realms of Death and tried out most of the things I could do there - recruiting was simply not one of them, due to how little I made use of that feature in the official campaign. Very Happy

P.S: Did you see my post on I2's forum I made about my first experiences with your mod?

Yes I have.

1. The imported features pack supplied with your mod still has the inherited Obelisk bug. Check the Battlefield forums "Bugs to fix" section for full details about that, but basically the second listed Obelisk shares the same ID as the first, instead of using its own.
2. The Kharn Quest Pack your using doesn't appear to be the latest one. I believe you're using the second release, but there were a third public release (version 1.5). It is still hosted on the Battlefield forums.
3. The Kharn Pak - Grass and Kharn Pak - Desert tile packs aren't up to date, either. However, at this point I'm questioning whether I did upload the updated Desert Pak as it was just a very minor adjustment. (From what I recall, it was just a transition improvement on one of the large desert coast tiles)

All fixed in 0.7.3

Opps, my bad! Intro clips still cause a freeze on termination. Topic unlocked.

I have finally fixed all the intro videos as well (0.Cool. Duskshroud's campaign video should still work in 0.7.3 with no problems - although I'm not sure. Topic closed for good.

Funny, it happened again in 0.8. However, I have tracked the bug down and this time, hopefully, it will stay dead. Fixed in 0.8.1
