1 - Story
2 - Windows 10
3 - Tried both
4 - Yes, launch Chapter 5 and it happens every time
5 - Attached screenshot
6 - Menu cannot be opened
7 - backup_stats, stats, udat are the only 3 .sav files updated today. If any of these will help I can add if requested.
Not sure if today's Trials of Odin update broke this or if this bug already existed. I did Chapters 1-4 yesterday with no problem. Chapter 5 is unplayable today. I have over 200 hours in the game but this is my first time going through the campaign.
After the intro cutscene and loading screen the ships with my units on them never spawn in to the game (I know how it's supposed to look because I Googled a YouTube video of it so I was certain it was broken). The camera pans down to the coast as Rig says "Land ho!" and Egil says "CHARGE!" but no raid ever happens and the game just sits there forever. I can't even open a menu, I have to ALT-F4 out of the game. I added a screenshot of where it hangs forever.
I get the intro to the mission and after Egil tells me to charge the camera stop on the village and nothing happens.
there is no boat when starting chapter 5 it just stays watching the shore while nothing happens and you cant press any keys, restarted like 5 times, uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing
4yes, just try and play chapter 5
Upon the start of the mission the introduction and custscene are watched through; during the cutscene, there's a panoramic of the water without any ships sailing. Waiting at the coast for something to happen has nothing happening at all while Egil's text continues. I've waited for an additional 5 minutes letting the game run just in case.
This is for the 5th mission in story mode named Punitive Expedition, I am to be playing Egil the clan of the wolf. This was attempted in both OpenGL and DirectX on Windows 10.
This bug keeps happening even if all data is removed and steam syncing is disabled. Please see attached image of this issue. Due to the game believing me to be in a cutscene I cannot pause nor access the game menu. Also, from what I've seen a new game isn't created to be attached (at least I don't think so).
Hope this helps.
Story Chapter 5 on a MacBook Air Big Sur v. 11.7.2, 1.8GHz Dual-Core intel core i5. The mission will not progress past the cutscene (as soon as the game loads there are no ships and none of my units exist. Once Egil gives the charge order, nothing happens and there is nothing I can do; I need to force quit the game because I cannot access the pause screen during a cutscene (image). The cutscene is stuck indefinitely.
Changing difficulty does not fix the issue.
I cannot continue on the campaign, have tried ~10 times.
Ran the game through steam.
story Chapter 5 the wolf clan doesn't come on ships. so the cut scene never ends. the raven clan doesn't get attacked. cant close game except alt f4ing. both openGL and DirectX tried both of them. restarted game around 10 times happened every time
At the very start of chapter 5, after the cinematic, no boats appear, therefore it cannot be played.
I tried at least 5 times in each DirectX/OpenGL.
Loaded from a save at the end of chapter 4 or from the start menu. Same result everytime
I tried to launch normal/hard/expert difficulty, same result.
Verified files on Steam, Uninstall/reinstall, same result
