Build: 101.101.35584.0 4714640 (I guess that’s the numbers you want? But just in case, I just downloaded the newest patch as of today before I started up the game)
I wanted to replay this map to finally get its achievment (even though I was eligible for it before, but I’m pretty sure it was bugged before), and wanted to use my usual strategy in defeating Yellow in time. This includes getting the bombard cannons as soon as I can to get them onto Yellow’s island and use them. Unfortunately, when my scout (or rather Light Cav) arrived at the spot where you get the BC, I heard the sound of them joining, but immediately after the game freezes and crashes.
Play “Into China”, the third map in Gengis Khan campaign.
Go to the place with the bombard cannons that the player can get - it’s behind the Great Wall, behind Red’s base (when going from the water, as I did it with a scout).
That achievement is still doable without the BCs. But you’ll have to set up your base north of the Jin (Yellow) island. And start booming with villagers to get to Imperial.
I also see reports of the achievement not popping beyond 50 minutes of play. Mine actually popped at 49:40 immediately after “Jin Defeated” notification. My previous successful attempt at 57 minutes also did not pop the achievement.
Yeah, Red tributes a lot of resources to Yellow… so what? I did get the Bombard Cannons and defeated Jin before they even touched the Wonder, but the achievement was bugged at the time and wasn’t awarded. So that’s not an issue for me.
(I always thought they tributed the res after you get the vills in Blue’s base, but maybe I’m wrong)
Everytime I have tried to acquire the bombard cannons from the camp, the game crashes. When I tried to destroy the camp with trebs, the game also crashed.
No problems with the northeastern camp with villagers, battering ram and mangonel
When I’ve tried a new game it also crashed.
