Thank you for your reply.
I appreciate that you find my request normal.
Are you able to fix the problem for the next patch?
If so, I will wait before asking for a refund.
Unfortunately I am unable to provide a timeline on when a fix might occur. We're not sure why this seems to only some GOG users and why it seems limited to a few particular menus. We're still working with our partners to try and work that out.
Out of curiosity did you ever give the game a shot on Galaxy? I realise you were using the offline versions but it's possible the issue itself is limited to only those version of the game and Galaxy is exempt as well. Worth giving a quick look into and would give us a little extra information.
I have found an alternitve solution to skirmish not working as it did not work for me either when i was disconnected from the internet.
Go to multiplayer, host a LAN match, fill slots with AI players. I tested this just before coming to the forum and it works as a normal skirmish match does.
It seems that in order for the skirmish menu to load and the lobby to appear the game needs to be online. Just tested this on a complete version of the game (all expansions), latest build 2.0.4, x64 win7, no galaxy.
If the game is stared offline skirmish menu does not show, go online menu loads normally and the maps lobby appears. Hmmm quite strange.
Thanks for the info. Another scam to force the player online. Don't do steam for that reason. Obsolete and evasive drm.
I have a fix for you :)
