No level 2 / purple circle on map

  • Completed - Resolved

Windows 10 64bit, 8Gb RAM

WftO 1.4.0 f111

After making a pause I startet the game and reseted the campaign for replay. I did not check my last progress.

After 1st time replay the 1st level (standard campaing - not the gold) I was ready to go to the next level but I could not click anywhere on the map except the lvl 1. I dont remember if the purple circle was in the map.

I thought I had to have all achievments. I replayed to get the other one.

Still the purple circle and nothing clickable.

I deletet the files in %user%

... I made a backup delete all files fromt the steamapps folder.

... I delete the files in steam-userdata.

but it seems nothing helps to get to lvl 2

Game Version:
Steam Public

I can not replicate this. The level selection screen works fine for me after resetting the campaign and finishing level 1. Might be an OS issue since I use Win 7


I tried to reset the whole game because I bought it months ago and I want to get everything from the beginning. So I guess I bought the 1.3 and there is maybe an incompatibily. If there is no easy solution I'm very happy if I knew how to get a whole reset.


I was in lvl 7 as far as I remebered. And I got in the past also a Win 10 system

2nd update:

similiar problem
but I got all 3 level achievements and nothing happens.

But I don't know anything an offline mode. But I think I am online because I see the social network content, facebook & co links.

The social media links are not an indicator if you are online, your steam status is. If you click on the top left "steam" button in steam and the second option is either "go online" or "go offline" if its the latter you are indeed online

you only need the achievement that you beat the level nothing else to progress.

could you try a clean install of the game? Please delete all War for the Overworld related content here:

X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common

AFTER you deleted the game on steam.

if nothing of this helps come back to me please, also please attach an Output log you can find in your War for the Overworld installation directory most likely

X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\WFTO_Gamedata\


Instead of deleting the installation and reinstall form the backup, I made a fresh installation (after uninstalling and deleting the remaining files in steamapps\common - I also disabled the steam cloud).

The purple circle is no longer visible and now I can select any area again.
