V20 Stable - Air Combat - CTD when single alien fighter escort remaining

Recommended Posts

I engaged a corvette with 2 fighter escorts. In the first battle I damaged the corvette and destroyed one of the fighters. I landed, re-armed and came back. The second time I destroyed the corvette and then headed for home without destroying the second. As soon as my fighter reaches safety, the game crashes to desktop.

I've repeated this three times with the save game after the first combat. I've tried leaving in different direction but the same result.

Can you attach the save file? That would make reproducing and fixing the bug a lot easier for us :)

Sorry I have saved over since then :(

If its any help, when I reloaded the game and killed the fighter before the corvette, the game continued normally after the combat. It was only when I left a single fighter alive and undamaged I had the problem

I am having a similar problem. I engaged a "Corvette & 2 Fighter escorts" alien group and knocked out one of the fighters. Then I saved my game before my second squadron hit them to finish things off. Now when I load the game and win the second engagement, whether through auto-resolve or manual battle engagement, the game crashes.

The save game file is available at this link for now, as I'm unable to upload it to this thread. :( Just load it, speed up time till combat and win for CTD. :)

Playing v20-H2.

An update on this bug. I tried numerous times to get around this so I don't have an alien group flying around forever. Even over water it didn't help. Then I engaged this same group with my 2 planes and just took out the 2nd fighter. Then I engaged the now lone Corvette with 1 plane and when I popped it I didn't CTD!

Could the bug be caused by a conflict between auto-recovering the fighter datacore and spawning a crashed corvette? (As I now have the corvette crashsite to investigate) Maybe you can't do both at once?

I've had a similar issue when I destroyed the main ship and one alien fighter, the other alien fighter managed to shoot down my two remaining jets. As soon as I had no jets let the air combat CT'D.
