Unfortunately for many fellow Star Wars: Commander players, the game does not run as smooth as possible and there are reports of game crashes and freezes and other strange glitches all over again. The great news is that the developers are working hard to fix all these problems and bugs that result in the game crashing, so hopefully sooner rather than later we will not have to complain about this.
Take my first error message report as an example: my game was plagued by the “FMS Failed to initialize” error, but for a few days not I didn’t get that message at all. So things are moving in the right direction!
However, lately there was a different error message that drove me crazy during the battles the “Status: 1215” error message. To put it shortly, it does not allow you to do anything else during the attack after deploying the troops and even though the battle itself still runs in the background, you lose the battle and all your troops. Pretty annoying!
Here is the complete message that I get, in case you want to know if we’re talking about the same error:
“Command Failed! The server was unable to execture the command. Please reload and try again. If the problem continues please contact customer support. Status: 1215”
Apparently, this is actually a good anti-cheating measure implemented by the developers, but one that sometimes backfires against honest users too. What it does is that it believes you are trying to send into battle more troops than you are actually allowed to, triggers the anti-cheating mechanics and therefore blocks your game. If you are not cheating, here is what you might try to do (thanks to Dan over at the official forums):
1. Stop leaving troops in the training queue over at your base. If a troop finishes training during the battle, the game might think that you are trying to send in more troops than allowed and triggers this anti-cheating thing. This is clearly annoying, but it works in my case – and it should work in yours until they fix the problem.
2. Don’t send all your troops intro battle and leave 1 or 2 in each category. This might work even if you have other troops in training. All in all, it’s about making the game understand that you are not actually trying to send in more troops than you are allowed to.
The good news is that this Status: 1215 error in Star Wars: Commander is a known issue and it should be fixed sooner rather than later. Even better, we have these fixes for you which should do the trick in the mean time.
