The first one with post 9 or the new one with post 25 ? I didn't have a problem with the one with 25 but I did see issues with the one with post 9

Sorry - I wasn't clear.

With BOTH saved games I didn't get the blank review problem (although with post #9 save I did get SOME units with SS ranks)

Exclamation Re: Campaign: Review Unit

OK, you are seeing mostly the same that I see but with a difference . Last night when I posted my reply I saw exactly what you saw with save from 9....no blank screen, some SS ranks and the rank issue seems to be tied to damage....the ones that have damage...most of them...show SS ranks which is itself " interesting" but apparently harmless as once they have been restored to " health " with fix all that goes away and ( so far ) does not come back and right now I'm thinking this relates to the switch from V9 to V10 but last night I did not see the blank screen when I loaded that save and I loaded it twice...this morning I loaded it.....no blank screen.....started this reply and tried again......no blank screen but on the third reload.......

so this joyful little mystery is inconsistent....but merely a minor annoyance as a "fix all" or pressing continue then exit and reloading usually clears it ( for awhile anyway )

BUT....... I may have discovered a pattern but it remains to be seen if it is truly repeatable.... if, after game passes from the promotions to the rebuild screen you click on any unit BEFORE pressing review you will not get a blank screen when you press review then select a unit but if the first thing you do is press review then select a unit you are more likely to trip the bug and get a blank screen ( but not always sometimes it works normally when you follow that pattern ) but that theory only seems to work with the save from 9.... so far I have not been able to get a blank from the last one and I have tried at least a dozen times.

If ANYONE else sees this when they are playing we would appreciate it being reported and a save would be nice

I don't know if it makes a difference, but the exact sequence for my last save was 1) Fix All, 2) Review (got blank screen).

OK...that's new info. I have never tried that sequence....... Fix all cleared the first save......

Ok.....just tried that exact sequence three times with the post 25 save and no blank screen.

I have seen blank review screens often with a generated campaign.

The work around i use is to select "expand core", then "exit". After this, review works like normal.

I don't have a save to share (campaign finished) but maybe this work around offers some hint as to the source.

I really enjoy this game, been playing too much lately.

I've noted down what you did and we'll see if that helps offer any insight into its origins.....when did you first start noticing this?

We're glad you're enjoying the game otherwise. We'll eventually track this down but it's being slippery

Got the same blank screen twice after campaign battles #7 & 8 (Sovs vs Germans, June 43-April 44). Both were winter battles, first ones of the campaign. Number 7 was a Soviet advance, #8 a Soviet assault. Previously unit review had worked without problems.

An alternate workaround is, hit the "Change" button, select a unit to change, then exit the change menu. Unit review worked fine afterwards.

Thanks. I had planned to ask if anyone had experienced that lately... Now I know

Exclamation Re: Campaign: Review Unit

We **THINK** Andy has this fixed. So far testing the one save I know would sometimes produce the bug so far hasn't but I've only tested in 8-9 times but so far it's not re-occurred.

That said if anyone has a save that will show blank every time please post it so I can test this EXE with it
