Warhammer 2 Coop Multiplayer Turn 1 Desync

ArtigoArtigo Posts: 1Registered Users
Coop Campaign - Mortal Empires

No Mods

Turn 1 desync after attacking first settlement


1. Verifying integrity (both players)
2. Both players tried to host game
3. Tried swapping flies (no way to change hosts now)

What other options are there to try?

I have all the DLC he has only a few that allow him to play Mortal Empires. Although, I don't imagine that would prevent us from playing - that would be pretty shady.

Appreciate any help

    For Total War: WarHammer 2
    Mods live in --- C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\594570

    Mod Data gets extracted to (or it used too) --- C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Total War WARHAMMER II\data

    Easy but long fix -- Delete both folders then verify game files
    (basically you delete almost ALL game data [but not saves, those live here FYI "%AppData%\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer2\save_games_multiplayer"] so when you delete the pack files in the data folder its going to redownload about 30gb)

    Technical but Fast fix -- Go to %AppData%\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Launcher
    Open Launcher_Log.txt (NOT Launcher.txt)
    Ctrl+f look for "Published mods returned from Steam:" Under this you MAY SEE the following

    -- Detected movies pack file '@gccm_naval_battles.pack (could be some other file name too)' which has been neither published nor subscribed in directory 'F:/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Total War WARHAMMER II/data (could be some other file path)'. Assuming it to be a game pack.--

    Whatever .pack files you see listed as "Assumed to be game pack" go to the location mentioned and delete the offending .pack file.
    Included are screen shots of a fresh Warhammer Data folder install as of 6/26/2019 compare to your data folder and remove any pack entries you dont see listed in screen shots. Worst case, game wont load and you have to reinstall the game or verify game files.
