I know someone, somewhere asked about this already. I just can’t seem to find the answer for this.
When in Campaign, I try to attack another planet, click to end the turn, there’s this zoom-in-on-the-planet thingy, a window that says “Plaese wait” pops up, runs about five seconds and bam, crash to desktop.
That sounds like a firewall problem, the game is grabbing a fleet from the server at that point, so make sure no software like security suites on yiour PC are preventing it doing this. Also check you are online.
I also have campaign crashes, but they seem random. Some are during retreat, some during attack, some while turn is processing. Very frustrating, and I can’t recreate them if I wanted to, the game just crashes when it wants. I’m on WinXP 32-bit, no firewalls or AV running at all, I can’t find any problem from my machine.
Still crashing often enough to prevent game from working. I haven’t had 10 minutes in campaign without a crash. One guarantee for me is every single time I retreat game crashes, my version is 1.55 full. Other times it’s random crashes, a few happened when moving ships into a fleet before a battle.
