I am also experiencing this issue. I tried restarting the mission and made a few saves as a I played through. The client seems to always freeze around 21-23 minutes into the mission. Unable to progress at this point.

Same here, I gave up after the third time. It happens near the end of the mission, when already in the Spanish fort, about to claim victory and then it freezes and crashes. Very frustrating.

Exactly the same issue as above, unable to progress past this mission after multiple attempts.

+1 from me too, after 4 tries I just used “tuck tuck tuck” and destroyed everything to pass it.

Same. Tried many times. Game crashes every time i got to the final town center in ‘Bolivar Revolt’.

Hi everyone. I’m sorry to hear that seeing a game crash on this mission. @AnimalShoe73027 the game is only supported on Windows 10 at this time so I don’t have any troubleshooting steps for Windows 8.1.

@suFFahEd @LeRak21 @Bertyooo @EntombedCurve02 @rockooldude Can you please confirm if you are playing on Windows 10 of a different version of Windows? Thanks!

Yes, I am using Windows 10 (Build 19041).

Same here, tried this campaign 3 times now, always freezes around the same place/time.

I got the same problem. It was like your screen, a lot of units between the red gate and firing. My solution was to get all my units outside the red town but only cannons to destroy anything and it didn’t crash. I tried 4-5x and saved like 1 min before I knew it would crash. Maybe it’s because the tower firing ? IDK.

W10 latest Steam version 1529.

Same here, so frustrating. Restarted few times and crashed exactly on the same location when taking down town center. Skipped this level by typing cheat code: “this is too hard”.

Same. On Windows 10, tried this level 3x. Crashed every time during the assault on the fort.

Man, the lack of polish in the Campaigns is something.

+1, and japan campaign mission 1 has same problem.
Crash when army pushing in front of Osaka castle every time, so I can’t try the rest of Asian campaign.
