0002985: Crash on campaign start
When starting a new campaign map, the game crashes to desktop.
Start launcher, enable essential files, launch game. Go to new game, select campaign, select any campaign, select a campaign scenario, select a scenario bonus.

The "cinematic' intro will play and finish, another screen will flash for a split second (I imagine it's a loading screen) and then the game crashes to desktop.
Thank you so much for this amazing engine! I have tried some other non-campaign modes shortly and it's just absolutely amazing! Getting to play the campaigns would be such a treat once this is fixed! Thanks again for all the hard work put into this and here's to hoping this is an easy fix!

Since I know from the wiki and forum posts and reports that campaigns are supposed to work, I took the liberty of setting a higher priority for this since it's a shame that all the work put into campaign support is unreachable due to whatever (hopefully minor) bug is getting in the way.

Starting non-campaign singleplayer maps seem to work fine, they take me to the main game screen, I can move around and see the world map, etc.

My version is installed from Debian repositories (0.99).

By the way I looked at older issues before opening this one up and although there are a few similar ones, they're either not exactly the same issue, resolved or very old so I decided to go ahead and write up a new one.

For completeness' sake, I'll inform that I did some fiddling around with mod files, as I explained on 0002986 (unrelated). However, I was unable to start any campaign even with a fresh, unmodified game installation - nor am I able to do it now after my tweakings.

The provided log reports are from after tweaking with mods a bit to solve 0002986.

Does the problem still exist?

Try the latest develop. Should be fixed
