Game-stopping bug right after Green Goblin Battle

I enlisted the aid of the Gray goblin tribe, and they were so happy with me that they gave me advance warning of the Green Goblin horde's attack and gave me a couple of helpers for the battle.

Anyway, I dominated the toads, and I enlisted the aid of the sewer denizens, I locked the door to the south, and I cleared out the boulders before the combat.

After killing every single enemy, the combat will not end. I have multiple enemies that show up in the combat list as being "dying" with negative hit points, some as low as -18, but the combat still goes on. One of the enemies seems to be in the north room because when I click on his face it locates the game window into the north of that room, but I see no enemy there. He MAY be stuck in the north wall.

I have run the combat two times, and both times the exact same thing happened. I am stuck in the combat. I reloaded and am going to try the combat for a third time.

I took a screenshot of some of the enemies listed in the combat line. There were more if I scrolled down. I pressed SPACE to pass a few dozen combat rounds, to no effect. I tried to move away from the area, hoping it would figure out that combat had ended. Nope.

Hello Rasputin, thank you for the bug report.

Yes, I am aware of this issue, I discussed it with Frank earlier this month and I have fixed it in version 1.21 (tough bug, by the way).

Basically, in that battle only, the game is adding the Green Goblins both as allies and as enemies, so the list of combatants is all messed up.

Two solutions:

1) Please use the workaround: press Left Shift + W + I + N as soon as the battle begins, to end it immediately.

2) Or please drop me a line at enquiries@heroicfantasygames.com and I will send you a link to the updated files.

Thank you!! Best regards 8-)

Thank you. I will send you an e-mail. I have beaten them three times; why not a fourth?

As soon as the combat started:
I tried Left Shift W I N; nothing.
I tried Left Shift + W + I + N; nothing.

Mmm, you have to keep pressing all the keys together and it should work.

Anyway, I've sent you the updated files earlier, so it should work for you now. Cheers :)

Indeed, although I never got the "cheat" to work for me, the updated files did the trick. I am now at the castle battle near the end. Punitive.

Thank you.

Normally, these keys should work at any point during any battle (after the battle has begun and before it has ended, and not while the AI is thinking or when a scripted dialogue is being displayed).

Thank you for the feedback, happy end of the year! 8-)
