    I'm having a problem where the game crashes every time I win a settlement battle and do anything other than sack it. I had played two campaigns with the vampire coast DLC and had no problems with any of them. Then I started A barrow legion campaign and by turn 6 the game crashes whenever I occupy a settlement. Both times I destroyed the factions in question (the orcs and dwarves in barrow legion starting province.) I thought it might be a problem with destroying factions but then I reloaded Blessed dread campaign that previously had no issues and now it crashes whenever I occupy any settlement even if it does not destroy the faction. The game is now completely unplayable. Please help.

    Edit The issue has been fixed! it seems that using 12x was causing the problems. switched back to 11x and it works fine. I suggest trying this.

    YA LETS START A NEW LEGENDARY SAVE AND **** MY ORIGINAL SAVE!!!! Just BS man. They just fix it for people wanted to start a new save not fix it with people having loads of hours on their save to be crushed cause of this crash. Nice CA nice.

    Just tried it out myself - only for the all-deciding battle, though. It worked in my old save. Not sure how well or buggy all the other changes tie into old saves, as I hadn't had the time to play and see, but the crash upon defeating a VC faction with active Pirate Coves is fixed retroactively.

    I mean it doesnt work for me. I changed it to coastal beta doesnt work.
    And he said it best to start a new save to make it work so.. rip 233 turns in and i crash cause of the pirates cove but nope it just crashes when I'm loading up the save.
  • RothnicRothnic Registered Users Posts: 3
    So what's the verdict? What do I do to fix the crashing when the last settlement of a VC goes down?

    Try downloading the Festag Patch Beta (https://www.totalwar.com/blog/the-festag-update-beta), or wait for the full Patch to come out (might only be next year, as was stated somewhere). Then try to load up your save-game - if that doesn't crash like it does for Aizu then try fighting the VC faction and killing them. If that doesn't crash (like in my case), keep playing and see how it goes. No idea how stable it'll be considering all the changes the patch brings and the explicit advice to start a new campaign.
    If it does still crash, however, no way around the start of a new campaign. Not much else one can do to rescue an existing save.

    It doesn't work with my existing save. Prob need to just wait for the full patch to come out next year which sucks.

    And I'm playing as a VC faction so that won't work for me.

    guys look out if you try the beta festtage update and dont start a new campain. Your chars will only have 15 skillpoints left even if they where lvl 40. If you use the mod to respec they sill only have 15 points.

    Just noticed today that I still got the achievement for "winning" a campaign as a VC faction even though my last move of eliminating the Vampire Coast crashes the game. So I guess I'm just missing out on a screen play or some splash art?

    This bug is preventing me from finishing my Lothern campaign. I have conquered the Elven Isle, Dark Elf tundra, and both Lizardmen tropical locations (all with exception to the final city of Lord Harkon...).

    My game crashes after the completion of my turn, if either myself or my Mummified allies end Harkon's final city, which happens at the end of my current turn, the game crashes without fail every time.

    An update on the patch for this bug would be much appreciated. It makes conquering the whole map impossible and drastically limits game-play.

    CA did release this statement on a holiday bug-fix/update, which I'm sure most of you are aware of.

    https://steamcommunity.com/games/594570/announcements/detail/1718584000971002227

    This is a fix that they really need to release sooner rather than later though.

    I've been having a similar issue to where playing as Mazdamundi, I would attack the star tower (the vampire coast's last settlement) and as soon as I chose any of the options for what I wanted to do with the settlement, it would crash. It gave me an error about how it couldn't find a certain file or something.(I'm away from my computer at tue moment) Can anyone give any tips or has this bug not been fixed yet? I could simply not take it but their hero's are wrecking my infrastructure and refuse to die.

    Hi all. I know I'm late to the party but has this issue been resolved? I see CA still has not replied to this post after they "passed these issues over to our QA team for further investigation". If anyone has found a solution, please let me know. I'm having the same issue as I try to take Vampire Coast's last settlement. It keeps crashing once I destroy the faction. And I'm literally on 370 turns by now, this is not a campaign I can just repeat!

    sigh, I wish players would spend more time paying attention to the news and patch notes rather than continuing to make posts on threads that are no longer relevant since the issue is largely fixed in the beta patch.

    Havent tried the beta patch yet but my campaign crashes at the Vampire Coasts turn in turn 233. While iam playing as Tomb Kings. But i dont know if that has something to do with them beeing eliminated cause they have 2 settlements left where one is besieged by tyrion. And the other VC races have plenty of settlements left.


    Edit: After downloading the Beta and testing it, it turns out the crash was actually caused by the Vampire Coast that got destroyed. I managed to get to turn 234 lets hope it wont crash again at a certain point.

    Yea sorry to tell you boys, its still not fixed as of 20th January, 258 turn campaign as Alarielle, Lothern kills sartosa and game crashes... The worst thing is... This is my doing, I brought this death upon myself, I took Sartosa (city) from them and they started to die out due to no city, so in a desperate act they hit one of Lotherns cities and died, now im just reliving this endless cycle... Please spare me the pain
