crash when loading game

Postby ange10 » Jul 19 2011

Every time i try load my game, it loads but then a few seconds later, it crashes, this can be anything from between 3-25 seconds.

I decided to save my game, because the game was feeling sluggish and i have quite a powerful system, so after that i loaded game, it runs really smooth, but it crashes after a few seconds just after loading.

i uploaded my save game here http://www.mediafire.com/?jtdikqn4v4q3hum

edit

i spent 4 hours on that save game ;( , can someone else try and play it and tell me if it worked for you? saves can be found C:\Users\usernamehere\Documents\My Games\Supreme Ruler Cold War\Savegame for win7 users.

I'll take a look. Downloading ...

- EDIT - It crashes for me too.
We'll have to ask George (our programmer to run it through the debugger). Thanks for letting us know. I'm sorry that it happened. When we know something we'll post it.

This save has an only slightly different issue. I crashed at some point, this is an autosave at most 14 days before I crashed, quite likely less than that. Now I have to revert to a save some 7 months and a couple of RL hours older than this one... It crashes instantly upon loading.

EDIT: Reuploading... This one failed to upload.

EDIT2: It didn't fail to upload. It is indeed a 1 kb sized save game, it probably crashed while it was autosaving! Should probably have a look at if that 1 kb contains any useful information.

Update 0 did not solve the issue. Same thing happened again. Also note that this is not only with autosaves, it frequently happens with manuals saves as well. It could help quite a bit if you made the game keep the previous autosave (keeping two autosaves at a time) so that the player does not have to start again from the last manual save, which could be months or years away (like mine, 1955, last save was early in 1954) just because one autosave messed everything up.

I'm having the same issue and yes it's when time is running.

pause time then make your save, see if that helps.

We'll look into it.

I've noticed crashes when im running at very fast and full speed. Maybe its not pausing when it makes the saves on those speeds? (or something like that.. i have no idea what the source code looks like im just guessing here lol)

Something like that, I think. George has been working on it.

Picture running as fast as you can in a long tunnel and suddenly a door appears in front of you...

I have a similar issue but my game crashes when loading the save. I am running windows 7 32bit and my system more than outclasses the minimum specs. Kinda gutted because I cant wait to properly play this game but if I can't load a save I am never going to be able to get a decent length game going.
Much Thanks
