I’ve discovered an easy way to crash GSB version “Full 1.59”, on Windows, Steam version (and also the Humble Bundle version, I think). I actually did this several times before I realized exactly what I was doing that was causing the crash.
- Run GSB
- Click “Battle”
- Choose any mission.
- Click “Deploy the fleet”
- Click “Save Deployment”
- Click “Save” (to overwrite an existing “deployed” save file)
- An “Overwrite File” dialog window will appear.
- Close the “Save Deployment” window by clicking on it’s X.
- Click “Yes” in the “Overwrite file” dialog window.
- Bam! GSB crashes!
I suspect the “Save Deployment” window was destroyed when it was closed, but the “Overwrite File” dialog (or something else) is still referencing it.
