Advanded Battle Tutorial Problem [Confirmed by CA]

cal3b6cal3b6 Junior MemberPosts: 2Registered Users
During the advanced battle tutorial, a European cannon is available to help in the siege and capture of the enemy castle. For me the cannon is completely unresponsive. I've tried selecting it in different ways, I've also done some things that might be a little extreme. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, and validated the files in steam. I also tried setting up a custom battle with European cannons to see If they are selectable and they are. This seems to be a problem solely with the advanced battle tutorial which also seems to make it very difficult to win.

I know I could just skip the tutorial, but this is my first total war game so I sort of need the practice, and it really bothers me for all the other tutorials to have check marks and not that one haha. ;)

Any help would be appreciated.

    It is indeed a bug, I have the same thing. I do not think there is a way around it.

    It is perfectly possible to win the battle without the cannons. If you want to play the battle with the cannons, just create a custom siege battle.

    Reproduced and reported, thanks. One way you can avoid the bug is to press ESC when the advisor is talking about the units. If you do that, the cannon will be usable. If you watch the full intro or click on the tick icon, the cannons will not be usable.

    Thanks for the quick response! I'm really glad there is a way around the bug, and if I run across anything else while playing this great game I'll be sure to let you guys know.

    Thanks again!
