Ikko-Ikki Problem as Minamoto
So yeah I'm playing as Minamoto and I was the Shogun, I'm not anymore, reason is I purposely lowered my influence so I could go to war with Taira and Tachibana BUT I forgot that if you have a Regency council you can't go to war so for several years as my influence plummeted I eventually lost the title of shogun and it was given to my former long standing ally Fujiwara. Wo then proceeded to warn me to not go to war with anyone but they themselves went to war with Taira and Tachibana. It was around this time I started having numerous and I mean numerous Ikko Ikki revolts across my territories (Also their specific name is Ikko_Ikki_name) now my army can handle them no problem but the constant distractions is making it impossible for me to wage war against the other clans. I also lost Okinawa and Taiwan (colonized it) I also control Tosa, Shikoku and Awa (the three that make up that small island) and a good number of Taira's provinces from a past war including the CoT.
Now I just did a file cache check with steam which fixed 86 files. So I was wondering was there a file error that was causing these weird named Ikko-Ikkis to spread like rabbits or was it because of my fall from grace as Shogun? If the latter then how can I put them down for good? If the former then I should be fine now right?
When you lose the shogunate, another shogun isn't automatically appointed. Fujiwara probably just got the title of Kampaku, and they won't gain the shogunate unless all daimyos endorse them resulting from diplomacy or war. It seems to me that the Ikko-Ikki appear in the absence of a shogun (not entirely sure though), so there's probably no bug. To put them down for good, either you or another daimyo (though of course, preferably you) regain the shogunate. I'm not entirely sure of how you take the kampaku from Fujiwara, though. You can probably get it through war, but I'm not sure if they'll endorse you for shogun in that case.
Yeah my mistake I mean Kampaku. Since Steam validated those files I haven't hopped back on to check to see if anything changed but I think it's a bug that the Ikko Ikki show up as Ikko_Ikki_name in every instance.
So I either need to regain the Shogunate for myself or make one of the others Shogun to stop the Ikko's presumably. Or worst case scenario I restart my game as Minamoto.
Yes, I've noticed the scripting bug too. It's hard but important to balance the influence before/during DOW. You don't usually keep your eye on the influence panel when something is finally happening, but it's worth your while to check up on it every now and then and try to keep relations up with neutral/friendly daimyos. Keep the deterioration as low as possible, and you should be fine.
