Bug in v4.0? - Using <escape> key when victory box dis

Post by tim_gwynne@hotmail.com » Wed Dec 27, 2006 4:25 pm

In Campaign mode I accidentally selected the <escape> key when the Victory box popped up. I am now "stuck" at the end of the battle. The game is ended but the battlefield is still displayed showing the position of all the men. You cannot move any of your pieces. There is no option available but to end the game. If you select "exit" or "save campaign" then the next time you file,open the campaign you are back in "stuck mode". I have done this several times now.

This is frustrating as you have lost the campaign. I am now saving two copies of the campaign at the end of each battle so that I have a backup to return to.

Apart from that: great game!

Learn not to push escape, that would be easier than fixing the bug lol. :idea:

Yes and if, using the same logic, I learned not to feel the cold it would save British Gas from having to fix the faulty boiler they installed. 8)

I use the <escape> key a lot as it is the eaiest way of "unselecting" the <fire> button. This happens quite frequently as the battle draws to an end. I've noticed a few other minor "bugs" caused by use of the <esape> which I will note down next time they happen.

I wish Christmas would end so that I could go back to work. :shock:
