Crashing on battle retry

Recently when I fight a battle and lose I return to the deployment screen, change a few ships around, alter deployments, etc. So far so good, then I click the fight button and the game CTD with a “GSB.exe has stopped working and needs to close” popup from windows. Any Ideas as to the cause or solution? The problem only occurs if I lose and click the fight button after returning to deployment, never on the first time after loading.

Interesting. Are there any errors around that time reported in

\my documents\my games\gratuitous space battles\debug\errors.txt

Nope no error file has been generated and I played again later after posting and didn’ have the problem. will keep you informed if it happens again
