    really weird graphics bug?

    Hi there! Just got Banner Saga off of Steam and having a good time so far.

    There seems to be a huge graphics bug though. For some reason all the characters show up as white and apart from 3 characters (who for some reason all have bows??) everybody's male. That can't be right. I mean, the Danelaw was alot more diverse than Yorkshire is now. link Also, 3 out of 6 Viking women were buried with weapons, all of them swords.link So everybody being white dudes is clearly a bug, right???

    Does anyone know how to fix this? It's getting really annoying.

    Sound not working at all

    So I loaded up my copy of TBS and was super excited to play!

    ...only to find there was zero audio. My headphones were plugged in - I proceeded to check my speakers, and then all my sound systems. Everything was fine. I could hear sound in every aspect of my computer, even other Steam games.

    Has anyone encountered this?

    Strange. Have your resolved that? Have you ever played Factions? Did the sound work fine there? I would attempt to update the Adobe Flash player first...

    Exclamation Tearing

    Right in the main menu, I can see obvious tearing, and there seems to not only be no v-sync option in the settings, but forcing it in my video card's control panel doesn't work.

    Tearing is a total game breaker for me. Is there any workaround for this at the moment?

    Haven't seen any tearing through the game, but it's there when viewing credits. Apparently there is no v-sync currently
    If you don't know where to put it - put it in the pillage

    No tearing in the game itself for me either. It works fine.

    But, in the main-screen/menu and credits, the scrolling-down of the text is a little "choppy"... I mean it's there alright, but it hurts my eyes trying to focus on little details.

    Unhappy Banner Saga - Bug Report Thread

    With people slowly reporting their various problems, I figured we could use one main topic so the guys have easier way to check what's up.
    Mine are below - those are by no means serious ones, just thought Stoic will want to patch stuff at some point (after they're done celebrating a successful launch).

    - Iver's description after his "transformation" reads {ENTITY:iver_desc}
    - Nid is a monster. I promoted her right after she joined and she got something like 10 points (12 exactly - she gets 10 bonus points). She is now level 2 with only two points missing to be completely maxed.
    - Game crashes after a longer session, just like Factions did.

    I experienced a bug where the game left windowed mode, froze on the loading screen, and minimized to a smaller screen size. In both cases I was exiting a battle

    Can corroborate this, but mine happened in another transition, think from a conversation into a city view
    - Iver's description after his "transformation" reads {ENTITY:iver_desc} as well
    Sigbjorn's description (when in PGs/Heroes screen) is the generic WH from Factions, not personalized.

    and a new one:

    several typeos:
    Iver carrying (SPOILER) Allette with his Arms
    The description of the Ventur Sea, last sentence seems to be wrong, It says: "...and no ports of note alone the east coast..." , feels like alone should be along

    I found a minor spelling mistake in Chapter 2. During a conversation with Tryggvi after leaving Stogr and passing the godstone. I asked for more of his particular brand of advice and he said something about never trusting people; something about staring you in the eye through a helmet and lying. There was "your" istead of "you."

    "Spoiler" you have been warned. While I was trying to destroy the bridge, anytime a varl got to choose who to attack (was standing next to 2/more people) he would not finish his turn. at that point I cannot take any actions besides opening the menu and either closing or reloading the game. next time I try im going to just have to hope to set it up with them all stuck with only one option to attack, but that hasnt been fruitful so far.

    I can corroborate this, happened to me as well, game stopping bug which is really annoying.

    Really excited for this game, but this weekend I hit a point where I can get the game to hang after a battle every time (for 6+ attempts now.)

    Some light spoilers ahead:
    It's when you are with the Varl heavy group, and you go up to the tower. I go to the top there, fight the battle up there (the one with a bunch of slingers and a hole in the middle of the map.) Once I complete that battle, I get the dialogue choices about the bodies found up there, select one (search the bodies,) and then go to the battle choices as we go back down the tower. It seems like no matter what I choose on how to approach the battle, it goes to a black screen with the loading dialogue and hangs there forever.

    Any tips on how to get by that? Have tried different battle approaches, windowed mode, full screen mode, etc. Very annoying as the save spot is before the battle on the tower so I have to redo it every single time.

    Here's some from me:

    • Sigbjorn's description (when in PGs/Heroes screen) is the generic WH from Factions, not personalized.
    • Typo -- Right after/before meeting Sig, there's a typo saying something like "...they caravan..." (the "y" shouldn't be there).
    • Buff/Debuff icon flashing on all character portraits (check pic below)
    • I think I had an issue with the Silver Arrow vs. Bellower, but didn't grab a snapshot. So, his ARM was at 10 and so was Rook's STR. Rook was in-range and the UI lighted up the purple tiles for the Silver Arrow attack. However, even though Bellower was in-range (one of his 2x2 tiles was), I couldn't select him as a target!

    Spelling mistake first time talking to Yrsa; "She watches you approach with her held tilted back, and points a thumb toward Ludin's tent." Direct quote.

    When I boot up the game and it enters the title screen I see no menu and no matter what button I press or wherever I move the mouse and click I cannot go any further.

    I somehow managed to make the menu appear once and got into the game. I was able to load the game and everything worked just fine.

    But now when I could play the game again, I press escape on the title screen and try to resume or to load a game it doesn’t work. There is seemingly no games to load when I click resume it goes back to the title screen.
    Here are some pictures to show you what is happening.

    I have this problem as well. My save files look like they're intact, but I can't load anything because they don't appear on the loading screen. I've copied out my save folder, and I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

    I'm having this exact same issue and I haven't seen any resolutions for it yet.
    Anyone know what the deal with it is? I'm really eager to play this game.

    Deleting the save file brings the menu options up on the start screen.
    C:\Users\*Username*\AppData\Roaming\TheBannerSaga\ Local Store\save\

    I think my save got corrupted because my computer crashed. Anyway, you could move the file or delete it. But when it's gone from the save folder, restart game and viola! Menu Options!!
