    Stuck in Mission - then sim crashes

    Post by spookytooth on Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:04 am

    Hi

    I'm having a problem with a T80 mission where you have to attack the Berestovaya River and Taranovka. I got knocked out but when I try to get back to the Main Menu the sim crashes back to the desktop. When I reload the sim I'm put back to the same mission option and not the Main Menu. Whatever I do if I select the Main Menu, Restart Mission, Abort Mission etc. it crashes.

    When I restart the game from the desktop this box opens up whilst it's loading. I've tried using the Pause and selecting other other options in this box but I still go back to the bugged mission



    I'm using SSM 1.0
    STA 1.0 full
    STA_GMP_1.4
    STA_GMP_2.2
    STA_GMP_3.2
    JanUpd_2015
    Weather options

    I'd be grateful of any suggestions to get back to normal operation!

    I think I know what's happening. When you see that box popping up click on the common option.You should see 2 sub options opening up. The top one is called local server .Just click on it and your game will launch. You should not have crash issues anymore.

    I think that's the answer as well - the game launcher isn't the most intuitive piece of software ever written, it frustrated me a lot at first Wink

    There are two methods how to get rid off the annoying box menu.
    Method N1.
    1. Delete/rename the next file:
    ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\root\default.engcfg

    Method N2.
    1. Open with Notepad the next file:
    ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\root\default.engcfg
    2. find entry: auto_start=10.00;
    3. make a change: auto_start=0.00;
    4. Save

    U're welcome Smile

    This intro video should be located in the folder:
    ...\data\k42\loc_rus\videos

    But I don't remember which one.

    it's "intro.ogg"

    I just made a copy of it and renamed the original file and presto, no more lighthouse intro.

    Thanks for the info to get rid of that box Lockie. Worked great.
