    Below is a list of issues which we've identified since the release. If you're having a problem in this list marked 'need more details' it would be helpful to provide more info - we're still working on reproducing/determining a cause for these issues. If your issue isn't listed here then please be as detailed as possible reporting it so we can review. Always check you have the newest game/system updates before reporting an issue to make sure it hasn't already been fixed!

    Investigating - We have reproduced or confirmed this is an issue, but are still developing a solution
    Need More Details - We're aware of the issue, but don't yet have enough information to reproduce/fix

    Below are some reports from this thread, consolidated to make it easier to scan if an issue has been reported or to find common threads between reports for the same issue.

    Cannot launch on steam:
    Please try some of the fixes outlined here before contacting us about this issue:

    - Try Launching in Administrator mode:
    1. Navigate to your Steam install folder (Default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam).
    2. Right click the Steam executable.
    3. Follow the above steps to set it to Run as Administrator.
    4. Restart Steam.
    - Make sure your Media Package is up to date or installed: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3145500/media-feature-pack-list-for-windows-n-editions

    - Make sure that Visual C++ is update to date: https://www.chip.de/downloads/Visual-C-2010-Express_24081894.html

    - Remove any Joysticks and XInput Flight controllers you may have plugged in
    We're working on a fix for this!

    - Make sure all your drivers are up to date, including Windows updates

    - Run the game in OpenGL

    - Run the game with the launch peramiter '--skip-intro'
    1. Right click on wargroove in your library
    2. Go to 'properties'
    3. Select 'set launch options'
    4. Type --skip-intro into the text bar.
    - Run sfc /scannow in the command prompt; this will find and replace any corrupted files that might be causing the issue

    - If you are getting error message 'GL pixel Format not available' and are on Windows 7, you probably have your monitor set to use 16 bit colour depth. Here's a guide on how to change it to 32bit: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/258-color-bit-depth-display-settings.html

    - Error message 'Node'~' (null) at "(1:1)" is not a map type' on launch.
    This is caused by corrupted save files, please make sure the game saves before turning off your pc or alt-F4ing.

    Fix: Take out the PlayerProgress file found in %appdata%/chucklefish/Wargroove/Saves
    Rename the file 'playerProgress.bak', and remove the '.bak' from the name.
    Make sure Steam Cloud is disabled for Wargroove
    Relaunch the game.

    If this doesn't work, try removing the 'achievements' file. Don't worry, you won't lose progress here!

    - Error message 'Node'~Language' (null) at "(1:1)" is not a string type' on launch.
    Go to %appdata%\Chucklefish\Wargroove\save_local and delete the options file there

    If none of these work please contact us either here, or with an email to contact@chucklefish.org with your PC specs and OS!

    All Platforms:
    • Using DPad while Battle animations/FoW is active will move the cursor and change viewpoint
    • Prologue displaying white cutscene

    • Game not launching on steam - Please see instructions above
    • Game not launching with Windows 8.1 - Please see instructions above
    • Crash After PC shutdown/crash - Error message 'Node'~' (null) at "(1:1)" is not a map type' on launch. - This is caused by corrupted save files, please make sure the game saves before turning off your pc or alt-F4ing. Please contact us if this happens to you.
      Fix: Take out the PlayerProgress file found in %appdata%/chucklefish/Wargroove/Saves

      Crackly/popping/skipping Audio
    • Workaround: Is OBS or another Streaming software running in the background?
      Workaround: Disable any Virtual Audio Cable and output directly to audio device

    • No Audio
      Workaround: Try launching with ' --audio-device=2 ' as a parameter in 'set launch options' of Wargroove steam properties
    • Game crashing after controller disconnects

    • Multiplayer game crashing when user goes to home screen
    If you are reporting a crash, please add the 'log' text document from the folder AppData/Roaming/Chucklefish/Wargroove to your comment.

    These reports are not confirmed bugs, this is just a list of report posts formatted for readablity. If your issue is not listed here that doesn't mean it's not being read/acknowledged! If an issue is determined not to be a bug it will be removed from this list to keep it readable.
    We plan to continue to collect reports and identify issues to include in updates, but we'll need player reports to be as detailed as possible in order to properly identify/fix bugs. Our priority obviously will be any bugs which impact gameplay like crashes.
    While some issues have threads dedicated to them - posting details either here or in the corresponding thread would be helpful - we'll do our best to make sure any new info/workarounds are communicated in both places to make sure players can find that info easily.
    If you're reporting a bug which was originally reported outside the forums please make sure to add a link to the original post - we may need to contact that player directly for more details.
    We're going to continue monitoring these and any newly reported problems, so please provide as much information as possible for any issues you may run into! We've worked really hard on this, and hope you enjoy Wargroove!

    Thanks everyone!!

      On attempting to launch a game through steam the game will provide the option for regular or open gl launch.
      After selecting either, steam will say preparing to launch then will just stop running the game.

      I was able to launch the game only when I launched steam in administrator mode. (tip mentioned in thread linked below)

      Edit - The game runs with steam in admin mode but the campaign appears to crash when trying to access it.
      Edit 2 - Also crashes if trying to launch a multiplayer game option

      Win 10
      i5 3570k
      nvidia 970
      8gb ram

        Heya, sorry about the launch issues your having! I've just commented on the steam discussion as well.
        We think we've narrowed it down to Window usernames having non-English characters. Are you able to confirm that your user account has this?

          On the tutorial mission where you first get to recruit things: I attempted to move my ranger before recruiting and now I'm softlocked in the move menu state. Wherever I click I just get the "We should select our barracks and recruit a new unit." message. Can neither recruit nor move nor exit the game. (Super small complaint, the game has some of the best pixel art and animation I've ever seen, I'm blown away overall. <3)

          /Edit: Oh hey, it even autosaved on the start of the turn, thanks for that, very considerate.

            I cannot launch through Steam. My username doesnt have any strange characters and the game still will not launch.

              E5A1B881-6B63-4CA3-BEFB-E725D6EC0E82.jpeg On my Xbox one in the campaign mode very first mission after I kill first guy then end turn the king says “ it’s time it’s time my daughter knows the truth but how do I tell her and then the game freezes I tried restarting and reinstalling the game every time it stops right there?

                I have the same problem as the sir above me. The game does not freeze, audio still going, but I can't just press the A button. I tried with my arcade stick and my xbox 360 controller and isn't happening.
                It fixes when I use my mouse, but then, I can only play with my mouse and not with my controllers, which kinda sucks.
                I'm using Windows 10 and the Steam version, if you need more details please let me know, but looks like an xinput problem in the game, not happening in other games.
                Edit: The first small update was applied when I tested this, and still happening.

                  Heya, I think this might be an issue with the controller, could you send me a quick screenshot of your controller properties?

                    Hi, my controllers are fine. I'm using the XBOX 360 wired by Microsoft and a MAYFLASH ARCADE FIGHTSTICK F101 in XINPUT mode. The game doesn't have any controller properties, but Windows do, so I asume you want those. They are here: https://imgur.com/a/vLlfcHv

                    Both, the xbox and the mayflash controller work fine in another games, just tested. They also work in those Properties windows, everything is fine. I can also skip the first dialogues with the A button, but then it doesn't let me to.

                      Does it work if you unplug the mayflash controller and only have the xbox one in?

                        Hi guys!
                        I'm having very poor audio quality on Steam. It's cackling and I can hear some static.
                        I do have OBS installed but it is not running!

                        Thanks for your hard work.

                            YAY! Xbox live was down, it could have been messing with your save files. Enjoy Wargroove ^_^

                              I tested more and more with the latest update. The XBOX 360 controller always works. My second controller (arcade stick, XINPUT) works at the start, but at some time stops working (I can still using the xbox controller). I tested my arcade stick in other games and it never happens. I think the bug happens when I press A too soon o not at the right time when a dialogue it's happening.

                                Only a small spelling issue from me. On an early mission where the Knight is introduced 'seems' is misspelled as 'semes'. It tells me my image is too large to upload but I imagine it will be easy to find the string in the code.

                                  Switch: When pressing directional keys while a unit is moving or fog of war is being adjusted these selection field movements are still evaluated and once movement is over the selection field is out of your viewport. Using a directional key then will switch to the correct view again.

                                  Another issue: When you end your turn and the enemy turn plays outside your viewport then you don't refocus on the initial viewport once you return. If you open the menu by clicking A then, the menu is also opened outside of your viewport.

                                  Edit: Don't know if relevant but I am using the directional buttons, not the stick.

                                    hehe, it's small but thank you for reporting it :) This one should be fixed in the next patch

                                    @Dawncaller thank you for these, I'll give them a test on my end!

                                      Switch, Archer unit does not recalculate minimum movement distance needed to take a shot when switching between two enemy units that require different movement distances to shoot. When switching to a field tile in between, calculation is right again.

                                        When scrolling through the border tiles of a map bigger than your viewport from the lower left to the lower right and from the lower right to the upper right corner, the viewport changes abruptly. Doing this from the upper right corner to the upper left and from the upper left to the lower left is a lot smoother.

                                        Edit: Act 3 Mission 1
