Information and instruction for version fix:

OK guys, here's what our test games indicated:
It seems as if the game engine wants to use the id and id-type that we used for the predefined convoy serial run in Italy for a convoy in ENG. It assigns this very same ID dynamically on scenario startup, which doesn't result in an error message popup, but may ultimately lead to a CTD somewhen in August or September 1936. Assigning a new ID and/or ID type for the convoy run seems to solve the issue.

It's a strange error since we didn't touch the ID nor the ID type for the convoy build since the initial setup some years ago.

As long as we discuss what to do, you may correct the issue by opening Darkest Hour\Mods\TRP 103\scenarios\1936\italy.inc and changing

CODE: c id = { type = 4712 id = 1300 }


CODE: c id = { type = 23500 id = 1300 }

Have fun!
