- Reloading mission saves: When a mission is autosaved and quit while the AI is performing an action, in rare cases it may become impossible to load this game. The mission will need to be abandoned and your Warband returned to the hideout.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to pinpoint the source of this corruption. In the meantime, we recommend always quitting during your turn to avoid possible issues.
- Narration issue: You might get the feeling that the narration is saturating during some loading screen. This is due to the optimizations done to accelerate the loading.
- Overview issue: The active warrior and the beacons icons might be missing while opening the overview map, the first time. Leaving and entering the overview should fix the issue.
Please note that due to the various optimizations, if you kept a combat save before the update, it will be removed and your Warband will be send back to its hideout, without any consequences.

Email these logs to logs at rogue-factor.com and we'll take a look at it. Please link your post/thread in your email so we can return to it. A DxDiag can also be helpful, and if you managed to take a screenshot that will also help quite a bit.
