View Full Version : Yikes! Clearing a mission freezes the game!

I just got the update, completed the "Breakfast" mission and... well... the game just froze! I had to exit via the Task Manager.

I still got the achievements though. Just be aware, this is probably a minor bug. That ... mission was spectacular. XD

Edit:
I restarted the game and got my bonus money and passed the stage, so your progress -is- saved. So I went on to the next mission, cleared the level... and the game froze again!

The game works fine otherwise, so watch out!

Exactly the same here! Game freezes after completing a mission but the progress is saved... ;)

The new achievements are broken too.

I kinda achieved them, but didn't...
I earned 22/23 achievements(only missing the 2.5k chicken) acording to the overlay but at the same time all the new achievements are still locked.
Every achievement crawler site considers them locked too.

I just visited the dev's website to look for a contact email - and found none. That sucks. Hopefully they'll hear about this and fix the bug -before- their Summer Sale ticket shows up!

The exact same things happen for me, too. Crash when the mission is finished [with saved] progress, and crash when clicking the Highscore button. :(

You have to leave it to Sakari Indie: At least they are consistent in their neglect, ignorance and apparent incompetence. :)

... this kind of thing seems to happen with every update, and I didn't even think there ever would be another one (not that this adds any of the promised features, but only simple achievements, probably for the Summer Camp event).

I just wrote an e-mail to them. :)
Mainly, because there are still some issue with the German translation [my fault :(], but also to let them know of this thread.

Thanks, jello. :)

I have no idea about the dev's history with the game, I just bought it during the quick sale a while back and liked it. So... >_>

Same here. Game freezes on last 2 mins - in task manager I can see that only one of four CPUs is loaded up to 100%.

It's happening to me as well - Two minutes or so left in the missions, right at the end of a wave and the game locks up.

I guess it's fixed (or OSX version was never affected), as I had no problems completing maps and getting the achievements.

Game crashes every time mission ends, whatever, I've got all 5 new achievements unlocked! Yeah!

I am getting more and more scared, looks like the achievements are only broken for me.

I really hope Valve checks the forums before putting a ticketgame up to have some quality control.

I keep loosing my achievements but they unlock (the kills at least) as soon as I finish a level but again, only in-game. They are never sent to the community.

Yup looks the same here. I complete the mission, the game freezes, I exit. Then my game page says I have the achievement but the prize booth says I do not.

same problem it freezes every time when the timer has 2:32 left. Even the achivements unlock.

In my game library it shows that I have the achievement. When I click "View All Achievements" and go to the Community page, it shows I don't have the achievement. Can anyone else confirm this is happening to them?

Same here locks up my PC when the timer hits about 2 and a half mins left and also the ticket refuses to unlock even though ive killed well over 25 chickens >.<

Yeah, sadly, there appears to be several points at which the game locks up or crashes:

Clicking the Highscores button in the main menu
Clicking the Done button on the "mission debriefing" screen where you get your kills, points, earnings, etc. listed
When the mission timer reaches zero and the mission should get completed


Luckily, at least the achievements I got did register with Steam in my case, but I'd say because of the constant crashes the game should be considered unplayable and thus faulty.

Not only did they break the game, but they also broke the game when a big event is currently happening on steam in which they're involved in. ♥♥♥♥. I hope they get this fixed soon, i would like to enjoy my game and get a ticket on steam. Good thing i'm patient and accepting of mistakes.

Having some issues here as well. I have played two different levels and both locked up with around 1-2 minutes left. The game thinks that I completed the level as I am able to move on to the next one. After the game locks and I end the task through task manager, I get a notification of having unlocked an achievement or more from steam. The Chicken BBQ achievement does appear to be working as I unlocked it on my second attempt at playing the game after the first crash.

I am having the same issues as everyone else, but it was worth it to get to the breakfast level. ;) Achievement unlocked after I killed the process after it froze.

There's an update available, and it seems to fix the issue! Thanks folks, and Sakari! :)
