Hi,

 

so I'm a bit puzzled here. After a few hours of gameplay, suddenly there was a change to ship combat, when closing to deck.

 

The enemy gets a few seconds advance, while my group just stands there and waits for the enemy to jump on my ship. So the fight starts without me, is this intentional? Wasn´t the deck battle supposed to start as a normal combat where the game is on pause at start, and I can choose what my party does?

 

The first seconds is totally controlled by the AI, not me!

 

Sometimes the wizard starts to do a random spell and others from my crew seem to automatically start fighting too, but often times it even seems like the enemy crew gets to hit some of my party first, without them even reacting.

 

At least on this video (from 13:18), the combat starts even.

The auto-pause on combat start doesn't work in boarding fights. You have to pause manually and assign orders.

Boeroer,

 

maybe I wasn't clear enough.

 

"The auto-pause on combat start doesn't work in boarding fights. You have to pause manually and assign orders."

 

I cannot pause manually at start, this is impossible!

 

The combat starts without me having the control to press pause button or do ANYTHING AT ALL!

It takes a few seconds before I can click on any member of my party and simultaneously the enemy is already moving and attacking me.

 

When I finally have the possibility to control my party, the fight has already been going on for a while, the opponent has already jumped on my ship etc.

After your answer, I'm more confident that this really is a bug.

I am experiencing this issue, tryed to make a clean installation and it presists. 

When ship combat starts all the characters are supposed to make gestures until the "cinematic" camera movement finishes and allows you to issue commands but its not the case, everyone starts the fight in autopilot and im stuck just watching until the cinematic movement ends.. this means most of my front liners get killed before i can even press pause.

Its a huge handicap

 

I tryed clean install, did not fix it.

I tryed ticking all "auto pause" options from the menu but it has no effect while the "cinematic camera movement" is running.

 

Any ideas?

Sounds like you have the Infamous Captain bug. Infamous Captain is supposed to make the enemies cower for a short time at the beginning of combat. Unfortunately it's triggering during the camera flyover and wearing off before you can control your party. So the other crew gets to start wailing into you before your party will even react.
