24 comments by PANZEROO on Dec 3rd, 2014

After the release of 7.23 on top of 7.03 version the BICE team have kept busy.
A new version is in the works with further refinements to all the infantry based units stat balance. All infantry units from Communist Militia, to Luftwaffe infantry to mechanized infantry and air landing infantry are now upgraded by either a Light Infantry Branch tech, Standard Infantry Branch or a Special Forces Branch. This means it is possible to develop elite Special Forces and neglect your militia or cavalry units. A minor nation might choose to focus on ski troops and ignore standard infantry development.Also transport ships are being radically reworked. The normal transport ship unit will now be incapable of amphibious invasions. You will have to develop more specialised landing craft and assault ship units, or rely on the risky auxiliary vessels ( civilian ships such as barges and fishing vessels).Also work has been made on bug fixing and more game balance issues. For example the weather buildings effects have been substantially reduced. High level weather effects will still be problematic, but normal effects will be more a nuisance. Trade has also been made somewhat less harsh. Aiming for a release some time before Christmas ( and that's a promise :) )

hey I know you're about to release the new version, but could I ask a favour from you guys? could you make Iceland a region which can be acquired through the "acquire territory" objective? I like to invade Denmark early in the game to gain a couple of puppets, but I'd like to get my cores from Denmark but the only way to do that is set both regain cores and puppet objetives, meaning I can't get iceland as a puppet, because if I chose conquer, and then release both of them as puppets I just won't get the cores... if you can't, could you at least tell me how to do it?

The save game CTD issue is occurring from some people and not others.

Further, some people find it occurs only on auto saves, other people have manual save isses. Other people have issues with both auto and manual.

At this stage we don't know what is causing this issue and why different people are affected differently.

A quick list of possible solutions, some of which work for different people.

~ Launch the mod via the normal game launcher, or try the BI Quick launcher.

~ Delete all logs archives in Documents/paradox/hoi3/BlackIce/logs. Save game two or three hours of time the game. If CTD delete logs again and corrupted save game with 0Kb and run the game. Then Save game after two or three hours again until clear of CTDs.

~ Copy all music archives from main folder to documents folder. (Text archives no)

~ Choose to run the mod with compatibility mode for XP SP3

~ Turn off any background programs such as game booster programs.

~ stick to one save game type - either monthly auto saves or manual saves

~ Lower game speed, at least for the first few months

~ Close down game and restart to load a save

unfortunately nobody on the dev team has had any save game CTD issues, even from save games people with one have sent. So its very hard to fix for us, since we can't replicate the issue.
