Missing Character/Building Animation and Floating Characters Glitch

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm building a massive and detailed map and everything was going fine. Then on my last map test I noticed that characters were floating, and in-building animations were also missing. The carters post horse and wagon move as normal but everything else is affected.

I'm not sure exactly when it happened. I have a rough idea because I added a decent amount of smoke, steam and bubbling effects in a swamp section. Afterwards I added a lot of grass and bog plants from the 3rd screen of the plants and trees menu. I also added a few additional forest pathways through an existing forest I created using the riverway delete trick. It was after those 3 things were added that I noticed the glitch.

I tried deleting all troops that were pre-set on the map (around 600 hundred or so). I also went and deleted all smoke and steam effects and all the short grass and bog plants. For the heck of it, I also deleted a large swath of forest on the map (around 1/3 of the map is wooded).......... and the glitch is still there. I also exited and restarted the game and no luck.

As I stated earlier the map is massive and is loaded with water, forests, terrain changes, various plants, steam and smoke effects, around a 100 pre-set buildings and around 600 or so troops. I have no computer lag whatsoever, and the in-game action never lags, so I have no idea what the issue could be.

So now I come to the house of experts, fall to me knees at their cobblestone steps and beg for guidance lol.

Many thanks in advance!


PS - Is placing the waterfall too close to the map edge and having it wipe out the midlevel terrain graphics simply a part of the game that cannot be worked around?

So I guess the first thing ot ask, is whether this is a disc version of the game, or the Steam one? Do you want to send your map over to me or attach it below and I will take a look to see if it's still happening in my game?

    • Player 'Faces' of AI characters?

      Has anyone here made (or is able to make) some player portraits for Crusader that would feature some of the AI faces from Crusader or Crusader 2? I just find the idea of having the Rat, the Pig, or the Khan as my player-portrait in game pretty fun, but I'm not good at image editing myself so I'm not really sure how I could do it. Also if anyone knows where the faces.bmp version is located on the Mac version (off gog.com) I'd really appreciate that. Can't find the thing on my computer...

      I just bought Reign of Kings a new game, still in alpha and of course, I expected it to have some bugs. Sadly, I haven't managed to encounter any as I have a super annoying graphics glitch. I usually wouldn't come here for help for a game not related to stronghold, but since the steam community is about as useful as "Clippy" - the Microsoft word paperclip helper, I've come here.   Using the my Intel HD Graphics I get no problem. But the FPS drop is huge. As soon as I swap cards to the dedicated

    • PM Display Missing

      At the top left of your screen while in the index, you will see "StrongholdNation Home". Below this is your username, below that is your last visit, and below that is your PM inbox usage bar. This might just be on my screen and it might just be a one time thing, but where it usually shows a percentage and below it some writing, it isn't there.   I am unsure to whether you removed it purposely or not, what's happened to it?

    • "new items" tag missing at downloads section

      Hi. I meant to tell that for a while I am not able to see from this website if there are any new files submitted to downloads section. Before I was able to see that "new items" tag near section or subsection name, but now the only way I could see if there are some new items would be to watch over dates when the latest file was submitted.   I did try clearing browser cash and clearing almost all browser data, but no success. I also tried to visit the downloads section using both - Mozilla Firefox
