View Full Version : Can't finish a campaign map
3rd Nov 08, 10:22 AM
Hello and hopefully this is in the right forum I wasn't sure whether this is a technical issue or not, I've done a search for similar threads and couldn't find anything.
Let me set the scene as best as I can-
I'm trying to complete the campaign with all races foolishly and I'm currently playing Dark eldar. I've just updated to the new patch and installed the hotfix.
One of my provinces came under attack from chaos (the one with 2 critical locations and relic in middle) and I chose to fight the defence. I had a very weak garrison and the chaos force had 2 retinue so I couldn't immediately rush them out the game. After a bit of repelling Chaoses retinue and cultists I went for his base and after a long fight I took it out. But no mission over, even though it's annhilate objective. Perhaps I missed something I thought, well I have now put lp2s on all objectives and have patrolled all the map, I even have a stealth detector (not that chaos can infiltrate their unit producing buildings unless I've missed something) but no chaos unit's, no building's, no nothing.
Any advice/suggestions/help guys/gals? Thanks in advance for any help and a big d'oh if I've missed something obvious. It is NOT a take and hold map.

Im willing to bet theres a rogue builder on the loose or an unfinished building that was payed for and placed. You need to look harder.

Chaos buildings when started end up looking like nothing more than a pale pink circle on the ground- keep an eye out for something like that.

Maybe I've missed something but I'm sure I haven't as it has been over50 minutes now, and I have raiders combing the map and units/buildings all over the map.

Just a thought - have you searched the *entire* map, or just the places you can reach on foot? The AI might have started a building on an unreachable area like a cliff (though obviously this depends on which map it is).

Is this a campaign you have previously loaded? IE you started the map before the 1.1 patch, and continued it? OR you started it in the 1.1 patch and then tried to continue it in the 1.2 patch?
It could be a case that the objectives got fried in the saved game and the annhiliate win condition for the map is no longer in effect. Or is this from the metamap you are continuing this campaign?

It is a map that has cliff's and lots of places you can't get to on foot or by flying and yes I saved it in 1.1 and continued it after 1.2. Either of those 2 may be the problem now you mention it. It's the map on the dark eldar/chaos planet on the right hand side below the webway gate map. Marconia is it? I can probably post a screenshot of the map if that helps?

You'll probably be able to keep playing quicker if you just start the map over. Quit the map and you'll keep all your surviving Honor Guard, then take it again next turn.

I would do if it wasn't for the fact my commander is now on the necron/eldar planet and it would take a few moves to get back to it. I decided to leave chaos with a territory as I hate the chaos stronghold and leave it 'till late game and in my experience if you just leave an AI with it's stronghold it attacks every turn rather than once every 2 with a territory.
Here's the screenie-

Just have all units attack-move through the entire map and they'll pick up any part-finished building you might've missed.

Happened to me when there was an unfinished building hidden on the corner of the map. Send your Ravens different directions across each corner of the map to find it. If not, then just restart the mission.

Doesn't the mission finish after the annihilation of the HQ? By the look of that screenshot, you have scoured every corner, and high doubt that anything is running around.
The changes between 1.10 and 1.20 are the probable cause to the saved game's glitch. Just restart the entire map, hopfully via a previous save, or let Chaos have it...for now ;).

In Dark Crusade campaign, the win condition is Destroy HQ. However, in the Soulstorm campaign, the win condition is Annihilate.

That explains the confusion. I've been revisiting the DC campaigns as of late, and since I could only bare playing through the SS campaign once, with the Marines,...I had a lapse. Thanks for the correction Riotlung.

I use that tactic on annihilate just start to build something and leave and it just looks like a stain on the map

Well I absolutely could not find anything, so think its likely it was a patch glitch. Surrendered the game and retook it eventually.
