Overwatch Game Crash


#1

When I kill an alien on overwatch, the game freezes at ‘alien action’. They never take the their next turn. You can still move cursor around etc but game does not play


#2

Also encountered this today. Setting was a scavenging mission, bug happened on first turn.


#3

Good way to prevent overwatch spam. :wink:


#4

Yep. It’s much worse after the update to fix it. Soldiers still (and more frequently) also fail to move then chug along in a block movement fashion when going down ladders.

Does anyone know where the save file is so that if I can get a decent game going again I can revert to that rather than a very buggy version that just requires restarting because otherwise this is a chore rather than fun.


#5

Maybe It’s part of the alien mutation to overcome my tactics. phaha


#6

In respect to my saved game the update has made things worse, not better


#7

You want revert what? Restoring older savegames won’t change game version. If you want older version of the game then you already missed that point after patch update.


#8

I’ve been having the same hang. Overwatch shot blows arm off crab and game hangs. Sent a couple reports in.


#9

The overwatch hang is still happening? It hasnt happened to me once since the new patch…hmm.


#11

When this keeps happening, should I hit f12 and send a report each time or is the problem known and the team is working on it? It also happens when I kill a unit not using overwatch.


#12

I’d keep reporting it. More data is more data, and it is better to have too much data than too little.


#13

Well it now happens about 9/10 times whereas with the initial build it was about 1/10. As I have to ctrl+alt+del to get out pushing F12 doesn’t work.


#14

F12 only brings up the in game bug report mechanism. exiting is alt+F4, or if truly frozen, the task manager


#15

Trully original Windows feature :slight_smile:
