Lock up/crash/problem in diplomacy screen

XenophageXenophage Junior MemberPosts: 13Registered Users
This isn't really a crash as the game continues to run and respond...

Twice now I've buggered up the diplomacy screen. Somehow I get into a state where all buttons are greyed out so I can't continue my game without killing the process and restarting the program. You can select different factions and move around the map, and you can click the console button at top left, but that's it. You can't exit the diplomacy screen and you can't make any offers to a faction. You're just hosed.

It seemed to happen both times when I was quickly clicking through a diplomacy option.

    I am having the same problem, I am at turn 93 as Rome and every time I try to declare war now I get the Grey Diplomacy Screen.
    I have to start task manager to close program and then restart, 3 times in a row now. Had done it earlier around turn 55 but after
    a few tries it worked because they declared war on my ally.

    I have also just had this happen, was hoping to find a way to break out of it without force-crashing the game :(

    I am having a similar issue, except I have no buttons at all. See below for dxdiag and screenshot.

    I just had this same problem and remember seeing this thread, so came here to reply.

    Although I could select factions to update the display, and access the encyclopedia, all other buttons were disabled, and the map grey.

    If it helps, I was playing as Pontos, and I was locked in an empty, disabled discussion with Pergamon who on the previous turn had offered me a defensive alliance. It's possible that after accepting the alliance on the off-turn, the game had failed to completely clear the dialogue before resuming play.

    Same here, just jumped on to say it happened to me as well. It seems to be random and not too often because I can't reproduce it on command and it happens I would say one out of ten times I use the diplomacy screen.

    Same problem here. Was negotiating for trade agreements, the 'Accept' (as in close the diplo screen) button remained greyed out when I was done negotiating

    Same problem here. Usually, I reload a previously saved game and go on.
    This time, the bug occurs in Coop-mode, every time I try to create a trade agreement with my coop friend. This is quite annoying. It would be nice if that old bug could be fixed in patch 5 (or 6 ?^^).
