My AAR http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4576328 is in real danger of at best having to be put on hold and at worst having to be abandoned after 6 1/2 months of play!

I'm unable to successfully reload my game files. I've tried at three different points, and even with different versions but with no success.

By the way, here's the last turn I could/can load.

When the game turn is advanced after this phase and then saved, I haven't been able to successful reload.

I tried loading one of the games and my MWiF application crapped out.

Yeah ... I know. Looking through the bug report for the few times I got it to crash it looks like there's some type of access violation exception error. I emailed the bug report at least once, don't know if it's been automatically sent (many) other times, to Steve. Looks like I'm dead in the water until Steve finds, fixes and posts a patch for this error.

I don't know what his priorities are and where this bug and fix would fall on his list. But I would like to continue my game. I started it on 12/27/2018 and, as the allies, had reached a point that I was having a blast rolling up Germany. Also, I was also at the point of having to transfer forces and transition to the Pacific to focus on Japan. I was much looking forward to that too.

I am wondering if the problem is that Vichy France just ceased to exist.

This is a very strange bug indeed. There's no Mad Except happening on my computer, if I restart the last game you can restore and place the Chinese units. After saving that game, MWIF simply refuses to reload the game. It stops on my computer with this screen...

I get the same. I chose Exit from the main menu and got the access violation below. MWIF.EXE was still running so I had to force quit it from the Task Manager.

By the way, here's the last turn I could/can load.

When the game turn is advanced after this phase and then saved, I haven't been able to successful reload.

I have fixed this. Within the next hour I'll upload a new HotPatch to correct the problem.


This was an infinite loop trying to find overland supply for Brussels and Amsterdam. Both Belgium and The Netherlands are aligned to the Commonwealth, so no overland path exists to a primary supply source.

However, both Alexander and Montgomery are in the Lowlands and can trace an overland supply path to Paris (or another French city) so those HQs are in supply. So, the program was trying to trace a Tertiary supply path from the minor country capitals to the HQs. Although the path exists, the supply isn't valid because the primary supply source is French, with which the minor countries do not cooperate.

What was wrong in the code, was that the program was even considering connecting a minor country capital to a secondary supply source that was using a cooperating major power primary supply source. I added a check to avoid making that consideration.

Is all that confusing to you (the reader)? Yeah, well you should see the code that handles all these weird cases.
