TU units disappear at end of turn

Thu Mar 23, 2017 5:03 pm

TU units are on the map at end of phase 7 but disappear after the game saves the turn.

Any ideas?

What are TU units?

What is "phase 7"?

TU - Turkey.

Phase 7 - end of program running before it saves (the blockish icon)

:D Those are the days being processed.

I imagine the units that are disappearing are simply fading into the Fog Of War (FOW) :p

I guess you are playing Austria. If I load Turkey, I see a whole bunch of units. But if I load Austria most of them are not visible to the Öschis... um Austrians ;)

So the TUR player is saying that he had units, which were simply removed from the game without reason, with no message in the message box, just vanished.

Then being able to look at the turn directly before it happened, and directly after after the turn it happened, and which units exactly went missing, would go a long way in discovering what happened to them.

If it happens again, save a save... uh.. of the turn before and the turn on which it happened, and post it so we can have a look at it.

New game new players and this bug has hit again to cripple another game. :mad:
Turkish units have disappeared like in previous game.
All players are patched.
Over the past few years we have run 4 pbem games and every one has stopped because of bugs that killed the game.
It is only that you have such dedicated players that they keep persistently playing in the hope that maybe this time the game will hold up.
Come on fellas we need a hand up here. Love the games you make we just want them to work.
Obviously if anyone can fix this we (and no doubt other consumers) would be very grateful.

Please BEFORE you start the game again --BEFORE!!--, ZIP together the entire the entire '.\Documents\My Games\Wars of Napoleon\NGC\Logs\' and '.\Documents\My Games\Wars of Napoleon\NGC\Scripts\' folders, plus all of '.\Documents\My Games\Wars of Napoleon\NGC\Saves\BrexitIV\' and post them.

When you say start the game again do you mean a new turn or a new game i.e. Turn 1?

I mean, before you start NGC.exe or autorun.exe, however you start the game program.

What you are thinking of, is starting a new scenario.

No, just wanted to clarify - absolutely not a new scenario. Its our 4th PBEM to collapse so its fix or die...(dieing in the sense of WoN being sent to the recycle bin).

Sorry that it took me so long to remember, but this issue has already been reported and resolved: Ottoman Stacks have Disappeared.

Solution:
- Download the script Philthib provided in the above linked thread.
- Copy it into '.\Wars of Napoleon\NGC\Events\', overwriting the current script.
- Turn the scenario back to the last turn when all of Turkey's stacks are still present.
- Run Turn Execution; returning to a previous turn leaves all ord files in place, so no need to replot moves.
- Continue as if nothing had previously happened ;)
