Having the same issues as some other people are having in their MP campaigns. Can't even get past turn 1 as either Franks/Saxons and Visigoths/Ostrogoths.

As much of the General Helpful Information as possible;
All lobby settings selected/chosen;
Step by step method to reproduce for each participant (the more detailed the better); During Franks/Saxon campaign, friend builds a religious building in city, moves fleet near Camolondum, does some diplomacy. Passes on to my turn, I do some diplomacy with my friend and other nearby factions. Also build a religious building, then move fleet to blockade Camlondum, attack through blockade. Win Battle load back to campaign map and de-sync occurs
He attacks city with one of his two armies, wins battle de-sync occurs.

If a Desync report is produced then that should also be provided by both player; (It can be found here: Windows explorer then type %Appdata% (open the following folders) > Roaming > The Creative Assembly > *CA Game Name* > Logs --- Please bear in mind you might not have a Roaming folder in which case please open the next folder)
Save games can be provided if possible;
My log:
NO_ENV DESYNC DETECTED at game tick 5442
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Total War Attila\attila.exe
(Failed to find logger for game tick 5442)

Friend's log:
NO_ENV DESYNC DETECTED at game tick 5442
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Total War Attila\attila.exe
(Failed to find logger for game tick 5442)

Was the Desync Resync popup shown? If yes, did the game Resync successfully? If no, what happened instead? Yes, shown but behind a popup saying that my friend(the host) left due to de-sync.

Did the Desync occur during the AI turn or during a players turn? Players turn, during either of our turns.

    Me and a friend are having the same problem. Ironically, with the exact same city, and almost the same factions. (Saxons/Jutes)

    We play MP games all the time, I'm not sure why Attila is having a problem =\.

    Will provide saves or whatever as necessary if any devs/mods request it.

    I am having the exact same problem, at the same battle as well. Everything goes completely well until my friend loads back into the game after assaulting Camulodunum as the Saxons. At this point the game informs me of a desync.

    Any information required I can also provide.

    Apparently, my friend upon re-installing Win7 after purchasing two new hard drives to complement his original drive and upon a clean install of Steam and Attila, we can play it without de-syncing right after a victory whether it be a regular battle or a siege battle so far. Hopefully it stays that way, so it's something messed up in the files of Attila.

    I have tried this game on co-op several times, changing through several different factions. We always come to a desync after any battle we choose to play in. We've tried winning the battle and purposefully losing the battle but no matter what the game says host has left upon loading back into the campaign map. We've both verified the install of the game as well. Not exactly sure where to go from here to fix the problem...

    Funny enough, I did a re-install of Windows as well (8.1 though) and got a new hard drive as well. I'm still getting a desync after every battle though in the campaign.
