Quite a lot went wrong this time. In short, I can do this:

AI only battles

This is what happens when I start, AI starts digging and I have no control. See also the minimap.

Replication does Not always work. It may require a few tries. This only works on the very first skirmish game started. The steps:

1 - Start a skirmish game with an AI in the game. I used difficulty easy, personality Rhaskos, colour red, theme Rhaskos for all testing.

2 - After five seconds or so, leave to main menu.

3 - Immediately re-select the map and open it again. If it works, it shall show up as per the first screenshot.

4 - If not, reboot and try again.

I used my own map to recreate this:


Output log of the basic bug without starting the game:
output_log (second).txt

Output log of the game being started (different game entirely):


A word of warning, playing the game with this causes the output log to bloat considerably. It was 27MB when I first found it, and 31MB by the time I had compressed it.

Game Version:
Steam Public

I replicated it 2 times by now

It happens like 1/7tried

btw, ingame menu also doesn't respond (i just ended the video there)


Thanks for the steps, this is something that has occasionally happened internally, but we've never been able to reproduce.

Looks like it's a workshop only issue


Too much have changed to start anything on this ticket ^^

I've tried 6 times without any luck ^^'

I had it just now. It is still in 2.0.

Output log:


I'd have nothing against watching 2 AI's fight one another, but this is just weird.
