    [V13] - Ground Combat - Crash to desktop

    When I have shoot down the first UFO and try to engage in Ground Combat, the game crash to desktop. Happen 5 times out of 5 tries.

    I play Full Game, Normal setting, no mods (new computer).
    I tried Full Game, Easy setting, ignore first ground site and went to next ground site - game crash...

    Update. The game crash on Quick battle too...

    --O--

    Can you validate all your files on Desura please? It shouldn't do that. It may be an issue with the files being downloaded incorrectly.

    Same problem here...
    Validated the files: everything is fine
    Running Windows 8 RP 64bit on an AMD Phenom II X4 955 with a ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB

    Edit:
    Am uninstalling and downloading again, to see if something went wrong with the update process

    Nope, even after completely installing it again: CTD on initiating ground combat.
    I do get to see the loading screen for 1 or 2 seconds then CTD

    Are you shooting the UFOs down in the desert? maybe the game is trying to fetch non existent maps?

    (Chris is the desert type maps added to the geoscape mesh? I'm wondering if community mappers can add their own desert maps in deserts yet or if the desert maps has to be put in between the industrial or farm map types.)

    Bug: CTD when attempting to initate ground combat with a crashed ufo
    Conditions attempted: Using the inital set-up of soliders and loadout provided. Attempts to initate ground combat over farmyard in night conditions, farmyard in day conditions, industrial in night conditions, industrial in day conditions (as according to the geoscape detail readout) with a light scout.
    Steps to reproduce: 1) Start a new game. 2) Wait for a ufo to appear. 3) Shoot down ufo. 4) Send Chinook to crashed ufo. 5) Click to engage. Loading screen appears, crashes after loading screen disappears.

    Uninstalled Xenonauts. Reinstalled. Same error. Not able to get any Ground Combat.

    Same error in Debug mode.

    Has anybody tried skipping time to the point that Scouts appear, rather than Light Scouts, just to see if it's an issue with the Light Scout crash site?

    I have validated the files. Still the same error.

    I fiddled with the ticker to bring the normal scout up first and it doesn't make any difference. The gc is rejecting something or looking for something that makes it crash... but what?

    This is very strange. The Build v13 that should have been uploaded works fine on my PC. I'll download the version from Desura and see if that works - if not, I'll try re-uploading everything.
