Game freezes to a halt (unrecoverable) after using left/right arrow keys in scenario editor menu search scenario box

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 78757
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When in the scenario editor menu (scenario overview) and using the search box, using the left and right arrow keys freeze the game to an irrecoverable state. This only happens when opening the scenario menu (overview of all scenarios) from another scenario. Opening this from the main menu does not cause this bug.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Open scenario editor menu (single player > editor)
  2. Click a scenario and load it up
  3. After the scenario loaded, click on load scenario in the menu
  4. Type something in the chatbox (at least 1 char)
  5. Use the left/right arrow keys to navigate
  6. ~~ ~~ Experience the freeze ~~ ~~

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

No freeze like what happens when you open the scenario editor menu from the main menu



Quick side note: This issue has been present for a looong time (years) - this doesn’t have anything to do with recent updates :slightly_smiling_face:

Same issue (Game Build #94056)

It’s extremely frustrating to waste hours of work just trying to rename the new scenario save file… :cry:

Yes, the bug also exists on the “save as” screen.

The issue is still present in build #99404. I experience it most frequently in the “save” screen. Most frequently being “every time I forget the bug exists and attempt to navigate to a typo or some other error”.


Hi, thanks for the report ! The team is aware of the issue.
