So I downloaded the Testlive client over night. I copied my single player game in. Everything works now which is nice. ie my whole based didn’t disappear like it did the previous attempt before the last update.
However the Sever setting were defaulted which meant I had a full Purge meter. The Purge was set to default max level 6 up to 24 a day with restricted times set between 6 and 10. So I loaded my game at 5:45 prepared a bit and I’ve been waiting… The game has crashed twice. Just completely locking up. No error code just totally locked and unresponsive required it to be closed through windows.
Since 6:40 I have not had a crash I had one at 6:05pm and one at 6:33pm. The game has been loaded and I’ve had sand storms but no Purge has ever been started. I’ve checked the game every 10-15 minutes as I’m tabbed out (I can see the game with my web browser windowed) There has never been a purge icon or a purge notice. That I’m aware of at least.
It seems like either the purge tried and failed and the purge meter didn’t change… (ie one of the lock ups) or the Purge notice came while I was AFK and went to a southern base but because AI doesn’t work If I’m not there it glitched out and never happened and just went away… I think that is less likely, I suspect the first wave would “spawn” and just do nothing until I got there.
The Purge is set to last 30 minutes so I should have seen a notification on my Map. Or my Purge meter drop if it wasn’t happening in my current location.
So it would seem the purge for single player is a bit broken with pre-existing games. Please tell me that when this super patch comes out I won’t have to abandon 150+ hours of work.
Reproduction steps as people seem confused as to if I’m reporting a bug or asking for help.
1 Start game Single Player specifically
2 Purge settings at default or with larger threshold with or without time restrictions
3 Play until purge meter is about 1/3-1/2 full
4 Create a Clan which resets purge meter
5 fill purge meter
No purge should occur.
