Gaius_Calvus -> Mystery Losses? (8/17/2011 10:56:39 PM)

Apologies if this question has been asked previously, but in between strategic turns many of my BGs seem to lose combat power for no reason.

In several instances, I will fight a battle and then note my losses. When the next turn (perhaps it's the next day) rolls around, that BG has lost combat power from the ACTIVE force, not the totals in the force pool.

I believe I understand how the force pools (for the Germans at least) get smaller as the Campaign progresses; what I don't understand is why I will lose 1-2 tanks and a couple of infantry teams from the active force from one turn to the next?

Please advise, and thanks.

Andrew Williams -> RE: Mystery Losses? (8/18/2011 8:29:57 AM)

any injuries taken for those teams?

Gaius_Calvus -> RE: Mystery Losses? (8/18/2011 9:12:49 AM)

No -- they just disappear. No injuries.

I "name" all of the teams in my active force pool, and "new teams" with generic names take the place of "veteran" teams in between turns.

Very frustrating.

Are you using the latest update?

RD Oddball -> RE: Mystery Losses? (8/18/2011 12:40:46 PM)

Gaius_Calvus any specific information you can provide will help to find out what the explanation is. Which campaign, settings, what the BG status is (in supply or not), etc. First as Andrew asked we need to verify that you're using the most current version of the game. I'd add that we need you to verify that the campaign you're playing was started after updating your game and not a campaign that's continued from a previous version of the game. Also if you've done any modding or have had any mods installed at any time.

As far as I know, I am playing the latest version. I received the game about 2 weeks ago, and when I identified the problem I attempted to check for an update and was told by the software that no updates are available (although this feature did not seem to work correctly).

I am playing the 25-day Grand Campaign as the Germans (Germans at Recruit/US at Line); BGs are all in supply. No mods installed.

RD Oddball -> RE: Mystery Losses? (8/19/2011 2:22:42 PM)

Okay thanks Gaius_Callvus. If you purchased it 2 weeks ago you probably do have the current version. There were some issues with the Matrix download section but I think it was longer ago than that and they've since fixed it. No mods are installed but was wondering if you'd ever installed any at any point? Sometimes in the past I've seen user mods that don't have the uninstall function created correctly which leaves behind artifacts that mess up the original game.

I'm trying to see what's different about your installation that's different from everyone else's since this is the first time this has been reported. If you could attach the saved game file from the GC you are playing that will probably help as well. Thanks!

Gaius_Calvus has now disappeared... is there a fix for this before all players disappear?
