Imperial Campaign; Freeze after Ork Intro


im currently around turn 60 in the imperial campaign and have my first encounter with the orks, after they attack one of my systems. Before their attack I have to defend a different system from the nids. After the beginning of the Orks turn, their Intro plays but the screen stays black after its finished.
I can press spacebar to skip during and after the intro, but it simply plays the skip animation and then buggs out. It stops at the full "press space to skip" bar and then freezes. I can press space again and it displays the text partially under the bugged skip-bar, but it does nothing.
To solve the problem I changed the name of the ork intro in the game files. Then it simply displays a black screen with also a bugged "press space to skip"-dialog.

Glück Auf :)!
