« on: June 03, 2010, 10:26:32 pm »
Sometimes there is happen situation when you entering mission label "awaiting game start (0)"  appears and then nothing changes, however sometime afte approx 30 secs, it start to laod maps and everything goes good, but other time nothing happening, and I have to kill ufo. I can provide save game, if it's needed to reproduce this thing.

Almost got my hands down, because this things not happening all the time, I had to /retry mission mb like 10 times, but finnaly I got this awaiting game start (0) for several minuts, then I killed ufo and made console log.
The game save in that last slot with selfspeaking name.

Maybe it's the infinite loop in assembly issue.

I'm getting the same hang on all maps.
I will try and post data if someone will very quickly brief me how or link me to said info.
Autocompleting missions bypasses hang.

Also, if you need any extra people to volunteer to work on tech trees, dialogue, etc. I might have some spare time in thanks for the awesomeness of this game.  :P

i had the same problem, so i just restarted the game, since its happened twice morein both cases playing auto and passing some time ~until you shoot down another UFO "fixed" it for me.

Not sure if this has to do with everyone's situation or not, but in my case the game was hanging every time it said "Awaiting Game Start (0)". I tried setting the game to bare minimum video settings and numerous other attempts. I had the latest video drivers. What I was doing was starting the game, changing a video setting, loading my saved game, and then attempting to enter the mission from the strategic view. Nothing ever worked. As a last ditch effort, I tried starting the game, changing a video setting, exiting the game, restarting the game, and then loading my saved game. This time it worked!

So, in my case at least, the game requires a restart after any video setting change before trying to enter tactical combat. Maybe this will help the coders find the problem.

This is running Windows 7 64-bit with a Radeon 5870 1GB video card.

Maybe this is already fixed. Are U using the latest from source?

This bug is still valid in latest master, @ least when changing stuff like resolution or screen stretching.
You need to quit the game & start it again otherwise it will hang the moment you first try to enter the battlescape [Awaiting Game Start (0)]
