Happened to me as well, when I started attacking the Command Post. Had to use the “this is too hard” cheat to skip the mission

Thanks for reporting this - we’ll track this on our end!

Also getting this issue, twice now

Possible workaround:

Apparently, if you use mortars to destroy the command post without actually entering the village with your units, you can finish the mission and avoid the crash.

I’ll try that this evening and report.

My opinion is that the game tries to load language resources text/sound files and crashes when it can’t find them.

Workaround confirmed!

If you avoid to enter the last village with your military and use mortars to destroy the enemy command post, you can win the scenario without using cheats.

Any update on this so far?

Yep, outside the fort I’ve taken the towers down, no prob. Break the gates, both no prob. But once I get moving into the fort and start to go inside the game freezes. Twice in a row. Seems like I’m done with the campaign until a fix comes through.
