In Progress Trying to donate troops to party in army, results in "Donated Prisoners exceed party capacity" bug.

No, I didn't use any mods.


Summary: When trying to donate troops to a party in an army I formed, in the party screen that allows you to transfer troops from one party to another, a bug occurs wherein any troops that have been transferred result in a bug where the [Done] button is grayed-out, and mouse-over message of the [Done] button displays "Donated Prisoners exceed party capacity". Where no prisoners have been transferred, only troops.
How to Reproduce:
Create an army.
Defeat an enemy army.
Gain new troops in loot screen that result in an excess troop count i.e. "Troops 300/250".
In map screen, select a party in the army screen, and click "Donate Troops".
In the party screen, move ANY troop(s) from the left side of the screen to the right side of the screen.
Try and click [Done].
Receive an error message, "Donated Prisoners exceed party capacity".
Try and reload save, same message.
Cry a little.
Throw troops away, so my good troops don't desert, and continue campaign a little bit weaker.
(NOTE: This has happened to me twice, the first time I was able to transfer 30 or so troops before I got the bug to occur, but after it occurred it did it with all troops.)
I have also tried reforming the army, with the same issue.
Have you used cheats and if so which: No

From what I have seen, if the party you are trying to donate troops to has more prisoners (or troops) than it can handle, you are unable to 'donate' troops or prisoners to them because the game logic doesn't like you 'accepting' anything that is over their max, even if it started that way. If you 'talk' to the companion or party member though and ask to see their troops, instead of 'donating', you can contribute more troops (or prisoners) to them and the game accepts it.

Sorry for the late reply. Are you still experiencing this issue on v1.1.0? If so could you leave a reply back?


Yep. Still an issue. Btw, my response was in relation to when one of your companions/family has a party in your army. Not sure it workss with unrelated parties as I don't generally donate to them.
