Game always crashes in the end of mission 'ascension' (vtol mission)
first of all, i play on origin. but there is no sound community and try my luck here.

so you drive the vtol and tries to escape from island. there is no mission marker at that point and aliens around. So i fly over the coastline and mate said i need to go back to carrier with a surprise, and screen fades and yes a surprise the game exits to windows...

I tried both 64bit and 32bit exe. both the same. and i am stuck at that point.

I have 1.2.1 patch applied already.

I didn't download anything to fix the problem. The same thing happened to me for about a week. Someone said to save the game as soon as the screen starts to turn black. I did that and it went right on to the next level. Try that and see what happens.

I did that trick but when i reload the save, it crashes instantly.

I also had this problem,but i just kept trying to finish the mission and eventually it worked by itself

You must stop when the dialogue starts. Look closely, you can see that there is grey area in the map. If you go there = insta crash.

It worked. Thank you very much Niflheim, that hint was pretty helpful.

Well i just encountered the same thing here.and after reading some and trying a couple of the fixes i was just about to give up on this when i tried the last thing, the whole save at the end bit. well it worked. loaded up after the crash and this time it worked.

This is one hell of a problem. something that should have been patched heh?

Quick save after Psycho said last lines and quick load right after worked for me.
I think it is a bug with last secondary mission to save convoy.

For anyone still asking how to fix it: Stay near the exit of the ship where you just got onto the top of the ship or anywhere close. If you move too close to the alien you will get bugged.

Quick save worked for me. ;)

A Grue12 posted this in 2011 and it worked for me on windows 10

The Ascension level ends (fades to black) when you fly off to the sea, so you would skip practically nothing interesting if you just instead (at any moment - you can also do it in the main menu) go to console ( ~ key) and type following two lines (hit enter after each line):

con_restricted 0
map fleet

This will automatically load the next level (last level of the game).

Using quick save when the screen starts to getting dark helped me.. altough they have lost one potisitive review for this.. the game is realased for 10 years and still have this bug.. not worth much..
