Troops freeze after creating second party

I’m not entirely sure what causes this, but I have a theory. Anyway. I have 6 hearthlings who were promoted to footman, so Idecided to try breaking them up into two groups. After creating too groups, I noticed all soldiers assigned to “Green” were frozen in place. Eventually, Ogo and company showed up, and the green team just stood there and watched as the goblin army murdered things. They wouldn’t even fight beack when attaacked themselves.
Steps to reproduce:
This is just a theory, so I don;t really have a prescribed process, however the issue cropped up immediately after creating a green unit.

Expected Results:
Having two combat units
Actual Results:
Having a second unit of troops who would not move or act, even to eat/self preservation.

I wonder if it’s related to Error adding an archer to the second flagteam

Did you try to teleport them?
teleport, save game, load game , ?hopefully fix?

It seems to be related. I have autosave were everyone from both teams are walking and acting again.

  • I have reloaded my other save. And i have tested to add the archer only into the second group. no freeze of the first group. when i add a swordmen, then the firstteam froze.

I also noticed, that both groups are following eachother, not sure why, i think when you have a knight added to the group both groups will follow the knight. When i moved the knight to the second group, group one is following group 2.

Autosave has still the bug. for example. when you add two swordsmen to the firstgroup again. firstteam will freeze.
auto_save.7z (7.3 MB)

As there is a new release, I will begin a new again. lets see if the bug will happen again.

Can confirm. I have also had troops freeze when promoting/demoting footmen repeatedly as temporary recruits.
