Re: crash when loading game

Postby domcoppinger » Jul 21 2011

My crash occurs when I load a save from any point during the game even if the game has just started. It also does not matter whether the game is paused or playing when I saved or if I play as any other nation, haven't tested them all but a fair few. Also it is probably just me being stupid but can anyone point me in the direction of the location of the update.

Thanks
Much Thanks

Exactly the same problem as the OP for me. None of my saved games will work (either manual or autosaves, whether time was paused or not when saving). They all crash within seconds after loading. Playing in sandbox mode, v 7.0.71, under Vista if that may be of any help...

To everyone posting this, are this reproducible? Can your reload a save, run to the same point and get the same crash?

yes. My save starts at 12PM game-time, at 12AM (next day) the event "demonstration against communist regime in east germany" fires and - depending on the speed setting - between 6AM (normal speed) and 10AM (fastest) of that day the game crashes. pausing the game (i tried pausing for at least 10 minutes real time) does not have an effect. When unpaused, the game still crashes during the above time window.

YES.
As far as I am concerned, ALL my saves crash, I just can't continue a game that I had left.

Im getting past each one,so i dont know if mine are reproducible .

Has anyone looked to see if that old crash bug for saves,which was about the time of day the save was attempted,is the culprit here.I know it was fixed way back when in previous installments of the series,but it could have been re-introduced.

Do you have the update to 7.0.71? Did you try making a new savegame and loading that?

Sorry, just want to be 100% clear, this should be yes or no, not an opinion.

Are you loading the same save game and is it crashing at the same date/time?
