Stuck on Turn 102 yikes !

Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:28 pm

Ok I must say this is the worst AGEOD game for crashes. I would say I get a crash on turn resolution about 20% of the time. Now it seems no matter what I do can't get past turn 102. Went to the logs.....hope this is the Matrix/Ageod ones. As the Steam version never worked :(

Attached AI log and Main Log. Can anyone suggest any solutions or just shelf this amazing but buggy game. Running a late model I7 rig with a 1070 video card.

Wait where is the attachment button on this forum? Hmmmm

My experience with this game and when I played it on a windows 8 platform. (Windows 10 runs much better for me).

- go back the number of saved games that the system is retaining. (I usually set it to 6, and when I start my next campaign may set it to 9.
- If you get an error, it may not crash, but it is wise to restart the game. I found that errors would eventually turn into a crash.
- Play the game disconnected from the internet and turn off virus protection.
- Shut down unneeded apps and processes to clear as much overhead as you can before starting the game.

Hope these help.

For me the fix is to just not play too many turns in a row. I usually exit the game after two turns if I am hosting pbem or playing solo. That seems to keep the memory (or whatever else might be causing the crash) under control.

Ya I learned that too. This time though I have tried re-loads and re-boots you name. Always crashes. Too bad.

Thanks so much!
Took out the internet Cat 6 cable and went back a turn and works fine. Crash rate must lower I would say maybe one turn out of 15 now :)

All the best.
