Bug Report Update Thread
Hi Everyone,

Thank you for all the comments and feedback.

Please note: We are adding multiplayer back, I will follow up with announcements explaining this. Thank you for your patience.

I will open this thread across all of the Commandos community hubs. If you are running into problems with a particular version of Commandos, please post it in its own thread, this will help us coordinate our efforts in searching for solutions.

We are working on resolving as many problems as possible with the recent patches. We have heard you on the previous thread and are working towards solutions.

Many of the comments I have read state that the game simply does not run on a particular Operating System - typically Windows 10 64 bit. However, this hasn't helped us unfortunately as some of our test machines are running Windows 10 64 bit and we are not seeing the same problems. With that said, if you could provide your full system hardware log, we might be able to hunt down hardware incompatibility etc.

To run a DxDiag report follow the steps below:
  • If you are running Windows Vista or higher go to your task bar.
  • Click on, "Start Button".
  • Click on, "Run".
  • In the pop-up window enter DxDiag and hit ok.
  • The DirectX Diagnostic Tool pop-up window should appear.
  • Click on, "Save all information".

From there, you can copy this information to a website like Pastebin[pastebin.com] Please copy and paste the link to your log into a comment here. Please also explain the problem you are experiencing with the game in as much detail as possible. We are doing our absolute best to fix the problems with the games.

DXDiag log:
http://pastebin.com/yXFWWyZN

Problems i've found so far:

. Strange behaviour of enemies inside buildings, there movement freezes whenever you are not inside or examining the building, which brakes the gameplay of some missions.
. On Mission 2: Das Boot, when deactivating mines at start, the underwater mine stops travelling when you move diver to above water, but then starts to travel again when you go back under water.
. Cut scene FMV's still not working.
. Cheats not working

Not an update specific bug but a bug in Commandos 2 nevertheless:
. On Mission 4: Target Burma, can finish this mission in 5 mins using an exploit, just give thief a pistol and make him climb the bridge near the spawn. Then make him go next to edge of map onto the bridge, this will make the tyrant come early and you can kill him without invasion. Then only objective you have to complete is the rescue spiritual leader one and escape.

running legacy direct from the exe with compat mode set to windows xp service pack 3 works, doing that for the patched version just crashes the game. trying to load both versions through steam crashes both

Legacy only works after starting the exe manually from the folder. You should check out the working directory, i think you've overlooked something here as it might try to start the exe in the non-legacy root folder.

Patched version hasn't ever worked.

SOLVED

Go to steam folder and rename gameoverlayrenderer.dll to something else.
I got to run all games Commandos doing that

Disabling steam overlay on commandos should do the same?

Problems:

Singleplayer gives comm2.exe stopped working.
Multiplayer gives comm2.exe stopped working.
Legacy version wont start at all.

Tried to start without steam overlay, gives same results.

Running a dual monitor setup with one monitor 120hz.
See pastebin for more system info.

Here you go.

The game crashes as it starts.

I thiok I have one possible solution, I got this from the Disgaea PC thread, as I was having fps issues with that game. I was subscribed to the steam beta,
and someone on that forum said to unsubribe to it, well, reverting the the steam client back allowed me to play Disgaea PC at 60 fos without issues. and here is the kicker, I can now play commandos 2 patched version without issues either.

so it was the steam beta that was oddly casuing the problems, looks like someone needs too contact valve and let them know.looks like there is something wrong with the beta. but give this a try. it works for me, but the legacy version does still crash if I load this through steam.

After the last patch (26/0272016) the game continues crash at the start in Win10 x64.
My only solution is to rename gameoverlayrenderer.dll. That solves all my problems

here's the news for Windows 10
Legacy versions:
Commandos Behind Enemy Lines not work (logic seen that before he functioned not under Windows 10 and the problem with Wargame.dir quote before)

Commandos Beyond the Call of Duty (Works perfectly, except for the problem of WAR_MP.DIR quote before)

Commandos 2 Men of Courage (Works or not Windows 7 or Windows 10 still the Stop function)

Commandos 3 Destination Berlin (Works poorly, I flashes on the screen) for version updater no more bugs with the sniper and the loading of the mission ^ - ^

What I propose is why not put just the same files that we had from the beginning to the Legacy Version?
If another proposal, I also buy the game on DotEmu (long ago) I retest and launches all smoothly under Windows 10 (except Commandos Behind Enemy Lines for DirectX5) it would be a good compromise for the Legacy version instead of putting the GOG version, which I see has large bugs.

Hi Plusky, can you post your hardware log? Info on how to do this is in the first post. We need to know underlying reasons for each bug and this is the best way for us to root out problems quickly. Thanks for the feedback!
