:? EU crashes?


#1

Whenever I select the EU to play, the game crashes.

It loads a little, then beeps and freezes. I can’t alt-tab or crt-alt-del either, so I have to hit the power. It’s only the case with the EU.


#2

the EU was a user-made modded level, but I managed to load it ok and check it out. Is anyone else having this problem?


#3

yep, not sure whats wrong. Portugal works fine.


#4

how strange. can someone email me the debugdata files from when its crashed like that, as I cant reproduce a problem here.
Thanks.


#5

Yeah, Portugal’s fine. My prototype NZ seems fine too…


#6

do you all have the latest version? I cant see why its going wrong. If you just start the game and select it before playing any other levels, does that make a difference?


#7

Hmm, I just recalled what may have caused a problem.

Yesterday, I did the first update I have done (since buying the game 2/3? days ago). It did Portugal, and then I decided I couldn’t be bothered waiting for another big bitmap to load, so it stopped it. Of course, stooping involves hitting the power. A wee bit later, I decided to re-get the EU files, and hit update again, though it downloaded them fine. Could that have contributed?

Its a strong possibility. of course the best way to check is to reinstall the game and then redownload everything. This is the ‘first pass’ at an auto-updater. When kudos is released, I’ll hope to have a more elegant one that will allow you to cancel downloads, select individual updates etc etc. Once I know that works, I’ll make the changes in Democracy.
Let me know if a reinstall and download does not fix it.
