the game animation is freezing during game - but the timer is still going - this is happening after modding on the new update - i tried playing it with v-sync, the same happens then the game crashes. i read that people previously have that problem too ? so how do i fix it - i have the steam version.

Hi, when this happens, it usually means there's a hidden error popping up every frame. As you mentioned this is in a modded version, there's a lot of possible things that can go wrong - if you installed mods from the workshop, you can check with the authors if they are compatible with the latest version (new objects and gameplay tweaks usually are).

And these steps can help you find more info about the issue:
- Options screen in main menu will print errors if something went wrong with loading the game database
- The log file will have the error that's happening ingame, so it could give you a hint what it is related to

Hi, it should be next to the folder with saves - here's a list of all the locations for all systems: https://projecthospital.forumotion.com/t717-how-to-report-bugs

Hi, if you attach the log file, we can try to have a look when we find a bit of time. Generally it's probably the best to backup your changes, revert to the original state and start introducing them step by step and always check that the game still works. Also feel free to open a thread about this in the https://projecthospital.forumotion.com/f7-modders-corner section.

[QUESTION, MODDING] game animation freezing Empty the game freeze output.

so what i did was edit the departments and insert the so called emergency radiology examinations and an operating theatre in the emergency section. oh and i was also playing the hospital scenarios from workshop. its easier if i show u the files. and speaking of which where is the coding that allows the ICU dpt to choose the surgeries - it would be good for the ER to have that without hospitalising patients.

Hi, first I think the error is coming from <SecondDoctorSpecializations> at your modified emergency - in now only has one item, emergency needs to have two.

Unfortunately emergency has a lot (over a hundred) specific rules in code when it comes to staff and staff roles, hiring, procedures, hospitalization, UI etc., so I'm afraid adding surgery would be only possible on our side and would take a few days to make it work. But at least the new examinations should be possible to implement.

It's a similar case with ICU, there are a few specific sections of code that evaluate priorities of ICU patients for surgeries etc., so not much that can be done on the side of the XMLs.
I'm sorry these aren't exactly good news. Smile At least I can discuss this with the designers - if it makes sense we can consider adding the "sending patients to surgery directly from emergency" rule to our list for future work.
