Can't End Turn, Save Game, Move Characters/Armies in Mortal Empires as Dwarves

RycoRyco Posts: 3Registered Users
Whenever I end my turn at 190, the usual progression happens, etc. Once all the other AI have taken their turn and 191 comes about, I get two events that pop up simultaneously. The first one is "The Doom Tide" announcing that the forces of Chaos have been beaten back, but are reforming and the only way to finally defeat them is killing Archaon the Everchosen. Before it can be read through though, and me click to acknowledge it, I get a pop up about the Warpstone Trade, either take control or leave it, I usually leave it, screw Chaos.

After I get through those though, I can't move my units, the cursor has an 'x' on it. I can recruit, build, apply skill points, but can't move my units, can't end my turn, and can't save the game.

    Hi,

    the same thing happened to me in another total war game (Rome II) ,and this issue seems to be a bit old (I've just posted my situation and solution here: https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/129781/end-turn-button-broken?)

    As a quick description of the issue, there is an event which is not correctly dealt with, which is causing all that. You can't move armies, select skills, select traditions if they are on TWWII, end turn or even save the game.

    A workaround posted in the link above is to open and close the diplomacy (or something that will prompt a "re-check" of the events, such as the one causing the problems), so it will appear again.

    If that event appears after doing the diplomacy workaround, but it doesn't solve it (maybe because you need to do something in that event, but your actual state is "I can't do anything" - it happened to me), you need to, in your case, provent both events from appearing at the same time: you can still load your autosave, so maybe you can do something before ending your previous turn so one of the events doesn't prompt yet.

    I hope it is the same issue so it has the same solution, anyway it's worth trying! ;)

    I know it's been awhile, just getting back to this. I'll give it try, thanks

    This is happening with the Dwarfs and specifically Grombrindal and as far as I can tell it has been happening due to his gifts from the Ancestor ability. In the current build CA broke the way his ability is being applied and triggered at expiration, apparently this is also breaking the end of turn resolution, which leads into the AIs turns.

    Yea i have been trying to play grombrindal for the past few days but cant because of this glitch
  • Poenix21Poenix21 Posts: 72Registered Users
    Same here Mortal Empires grobrindal.
  • VisricVisric Member Posts: 133Registered Users
    Confirmed. Having excatly the same problem. Can't move armies, can't end turn can't do anything. You know, I would have prefered them not to try patch Grombrindals ancestors ability. At least I was able to play the game with Grombrindal more than 16 turns before this latest patch...

    Happened to me aswell. On the turn 167 the movement and end turn button changes grey and cant do anything. Is there a fix coming up for that?

    This only happens with Grombrindal as your Legendary lord right?

    Same. Mortal Empires with Grombrindal as LL.
  • LeafyPeteLeafyPete Posts: 3Registered Users
    Having the same issue as stated above. Grombrindal.
  • maurinusamaurinusa Posts: 1Registered Users
    Yup, same issue wIth Grombrindal here. Also, his stupid ancestor ability hasn’t been functioning right since I purchased his skill that lets him change it more often
  • VisricVisric Member Posts: 133Registered Users
    New game with Grombrindal, at turn 13 same thing. I quick saved and then quick loaded. After quick loading I'm able to continue the game. Let's see how far this gets me.
  • tuna86tuna86 Posts: 2Registered Users
    Just saw this thread, have to contribute and say I am also experiencing this bug. Just experienced it now.
  • WachenWachen Posts: 2Registered Users
    Turn 37 for me, Grombrindal as starting LL..
  • BarcodeBarcode Posts: 5Registered Users
    I am having the exact same issue as described, nice to see CA have provided no additional info on this in 2 months
  • ThaneMurthor12ThaneMurthor12 Posts: 490Registered Users
    Does this issue only happen when you use Grombrindal as your starting LL? or does it happen on any other LL?

    Yeah, it seems limited to him.
  • ThaneMurthor12ThaneMurthor12 Posts: 490Registered Users
    well good thing I prefer Thorgrim over Grombrindal. lol

    Still though I hope this issue gets fixed in the next patch.

    I didn't see a fix in the new patch-notes posted today.

    Is this bug only related to mods?
  • gaion22gaion22 Posts: 2Registered Users
    keeps happening to grombrindal >.> why cant they fix this ****. makes me not want to preorder three kingdoms
  • RoverZCRoverZC Posts: 1Registered Users
    Reporting the same thing occuring still. Playing Grombrindal. It happens only when his ancestor ability comes up. Sometimes reloading autosaves worked, but now I'm hung and reloaded/restarted steam and still haven't managed to get by it. Even went back three turns and tried again. But its stuck.

    Please fix,
  • OnearmyOnearmy Posts: 1Registered Users
    Had this issue occur on Turn 69 as Brettonnia. So it doesn't seem to just be Grombrindal.
  • Ray_StantzRay_Stantz Junior Member Posts: 6Registered Users
    I've now had this error occur on turn 83 with Thorgrim so issue not confined to just Grombrindal.
  • Beas7ieBeas7ie Posts: 5Registered Users
    Had this just happen to me on turn 10 as Tyrion in a new ME campaign. I have gotten quite far in an older one without having this bug, but it just happened tonight.

    Running a lot of mods including SFO. For me I get this on my turn 10 when I get a message about Beastmen reports and whether or not there will be a large Beastmen invasion. No matter which choice I select, I still get this bug. Quite infuriating
  • Darklighter44Darklighter44 Posts: 3Registered Users
    This should solve your problems. Hit CTRL and S together, then CTRL and L together. This will unfreeze your screen and you can continue! You have to use your keyboard, not the menu screen. Remember, control save, then control load.

    I hope I helped your headaches!

    currently running a ME Malekith playthrough and i am also having the same problems as others, an even pops up and even if u make a choice the game acts as if you did not and you can't do anything, i have already restarted this campaign 2 times as the first time it messed up on an empire event and then later on with the beastman event, i am also running SFO as one of the others has mentioned above.
  • Sithlord223Sithlord223 Posts: 2Registered Users
    @Darklighter44 you have confirmed that this works to fix the event problem?
  • Darklighter44Darklighter44 Posts: 3Registered Users
    I've used it many times. I'm playing as Wood elves. Nearly any time an event happens, I get the freeze. Doing the save and load has worked every time.
