Vampire Coast DLC Crash to desktop issue

edited November 2018 in Crashes
I'm compiling links to all the people experiencing the same issue to try and help make CA's job a little easier. Here are all the posts related to the issues with and without logs. If anybody comes up with a solution please let the rest of us know!

To summarize the issue, the game will crash to desktop when any of the new factions from vampire coast (or at least some of them) are completely defeated. Some people seem to think it may be due to them having pirate coves established in the game although this hasn't been proven one way or the other as far as i can tell. All of the posted methods of resolving crashes including and up to a full reinstall and the lobotomies have been attempted on at least one of these saves.

    I started Warriors of Chaos campaign after Vampire Coast patch and I'm at turn 158. When I click end turn, game crashes to desktop when its Clan Pestilance's turn and I tried 3 times to check if my actions help me pass that turn. I checked support forum and see lots of crashes from players and they are all saying somehow game crashes to desktop when a Vampire Coast faction destroyed by you or Ai. So here I stand spent my whole weekend on this campaign and can't literally play after turn 158.

    I tryed a new campain ( Vampire Counts ) and it immediately crashed when i got killed. It looks like its a bug in gerneral with the defeat of a faction.

    This has to be my issue im copy/pasting it here check this out:

    Here is a link to my save file on turn 384 as the new vampire pirate dlc Luthor Harkon.

    Also uploaded file to this post

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/uj3npltoobo1eiy/Auto-save.38349808191.save?dl=0

    Go ahead try and take Macu Peaks in any way possible, game keeps crashing for me. Let me know if anyone finds a way around this...I've already tried every option, playing the battle, sacking the settlement then occupying, auto resolve, nothing works and its a tradgedy after how many hours I put into this...CA can you please help me fix this or identify whats wrong? I use zero mods, have all DLCS, tried DX11 and DX12 with no difference.

    For those who dont know save file location is as follows if you wish to try it and let me know if it works on your end::

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer2\save_games

    My system specs:

    I7-7700k 16gb ram 1080ti water cooled All games on SSD's

    Edit: This is a crash to desktop on the latest version of the game I keep my games auto updated on steam and I also double checked if there were any updates available there were none. Also CA my modified.log contains zero information in it from what I can see.

    any chance of an update or ETA on this?

    game is totally unplayable for me now and I am guessing its the same for others.

    it would be good to just get some idea of how long we will have to wait, thanks.

    "game is totally unplayable for me now and I am guessing its the same for others."

    same for me im stuck at that turn and i really want to play the campain ^^

    I too am sadly dealing with this bug. My rats are stuck on turn 74 and only dream of finishing the massacre of the pointy eared man things that don't have enough meat.
  • ThundergitzThundergitz Registered Users Posts: 9
    In 2 games now.

    As soon as the Vampire coast or Saratoga are annihilated and the game wants to load the splash art it crashes.
    Tried verifying files, total reinstall, other gpu driver.. nothing helps.

    In another tread someone deducted it had something to do with when the vampire faction has a coven.
    Before they have a coven it seem to be fine. plz pass to QA
  • SwampSackMcGeeSwampSackMcGee Registered Users Posts: 22
    Yea been itching to play but there really is no reason too, cant realistically protect every VC faction on the map in hopes of the game not crashing
  • ThundergitzThundergitz Registered Users Posts: 9
    Dear CA,

    Any progress on this issue yet?

    Don't want to start another game knowing i can't finish it.

    Weird for a game you have enjoyed so much to be wrecked bij a little DLC.

    Even bought the dlc to see if that fixxes the issue, but it doesn't.....
  • MawdrigenMawdrigen Registered Users Posts: 7
    Yep I'm still waiting on this fix as well as the game is impossible for me to play currently
  • MobiSevMobiSev Registered Users Posts: 10
    this is a game breaking bug. For me, it happens when the Sartosa faction gets destroyed during the end turn.
  • AizuAizu Registered Users Posts: 27
    Please CA come on, it been 5 days FIX IT.
  • SwampSackMcGeeSwampSackMcGee Registered Users Posts: 22
    CA if you do find your way back here can we maybe get a tiny behind the scenes glimpse at where we are at with this. I'm really itching to play this great game you've created. Maybe a tweet regarding the stats would be good?

    Ya i really want to play but CA hasn't updated us with anything......
  • haquocdanghaquocdang Registered Users Posts: 1
    I also got this crash when destroy the last settle of Dread Fleet (I play as Vampire Coast). CA please respond this issue.
  • surprentissurprentis Registered Users Posts: 5
    This has got to get fixed this week its literally unplayable. We paid a bunch of money for all these expansions only to not be able to play the game and complete it in its entirety. This is the kind of bug you do not lazily wade around in you get your entire team on it immediately and fix it with a hotfix. Literally selling a broken product.

    yaaa this is legit stupid.

    3 campaigns... 3 crash during other factions turns...
    I removed a lot of mods between the first and the third...

    The last one I had just small modifications I made and here again it crashed...
    and so I searched the web to find this.

    I agree with others, CA must fix this asap.

    I have to switch to an other game until they fix it.

    Throw in my two cents - same issue. I end my turn ~70, screen starts to jitter and freeze for a couple seconds. Gets to vampire coast's turn, boom CTD.

    I can only assume it's the same issue as the rest of you, came across it on the 19th, no issue beforehand. Unchecked the unupdated mods, loaded into a fresh campaign, no problems until Harkon goes and does something I can't see.

    At least five days of downtime with only a single response is unacceptable. The game is unplayable if certain factions can't be destroyed - you either protect them all (bordering impossible and spoiling the point of playing. a. game) or just accept you have a far more restrictive amount of time to play in. +/- 100 turns. Sucks.
  • tommyc434tommyc434 Registered Users Posts: 2
    I have the same issue. I'm personally eliminating the Vampire Coast and the game crashes right after winning the final battle, I make my settlement option decision (loot/raze, etc), and the "faction destroyed" note is supposed to come up.

    Luckily I haven't been put in a situation where the AI is eliminating but this means any campaign can break now :(
  • ZartarUKZartarUK Registered Users Posts: 12
    bug and problems with games happen, that I can accept, but the total lack of communication is a joke.

    it really doesn't take a lot of effort for them just to leave a comment to let us know whats happening, rather than just ignoring this, almost been a whole week since we got some generic comment telling us its being passed on, who really knows whats happening with the issue.

    I think we can all accept issues with games as long as they get fixed but just being ignored when the game is unplayable for so many people, that's unacceptable.

    no quicker way to turn fans against a gaming company than to ignore them, in any other industry we would be getting compensation for getting a faulty product.
  • FrontaffeFrontaffe Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 23
    Maybe we can get there attantion if we spam the problem on all sozailmedia forums like twitter Facebook and Youtube...
  • SwampSackMcGeeSwampSackMcGee Registered Users Posts: 22
    Spamming is never good and i hope it doesn't get to the point where that the only way we will receive input from the team is to spam them. Lets give them a few more days before we get crazy (even though this wait is already ridiculous for a $20 DLC)
