no other game related errors in logs, crashes normally get logged by the system and also normally be in this report, but as there are none, can you update both above and retry.

and they send in another report thanks, sorry again for your issues

I can see from the Steam page that the Steam version got the following Release Date: 12 Nov, 2012.
Is that info correct?

If that info is correct then the Steam version might be a quite early version of the game.

@champ12345: please check the version number of your downloaded Steam version.

Updating from a very early release like 1.12 or such to the latest official release 1.66 might cause some "holes" which were not properly addressed by the latest 1.66 update.

There might be issues if the latest update does not include ALL the fixes of the previous ones.

If you are updating from an early release like 1.12 try updating to V.1.5.2, then V.1.6.2 and then V1.6.6 instead.

If your downloaded version is already V1.30 then a straight update to V1.66 should work fine.

Find the earlier Updates on the Slitherene homepage for this game.

its sounds like exactly NOT 1.66, which fixed such issues

All of the posted logfiles mention V1.66.

ive just downloaded his save, funny thing

every his nation has 9999 pps, 9999 mp, 90 ammo

germans have like 20 arties... tens of subs both, austria and germany, in dec 1915

ive got no crash in 1.66, i can continue in next turn

so its seems its not about the game
(if its completely and pure 1.66, maybe hes missing something or he screwed it up by modding)

Tried your savegame and the game proceeded fine to the next turn without crashing.

Do you also have these crazy resources displayed on your resource panel?
If so, care to explain how you managed to get so many resources?

Did you mess around with the scripts?

If not, please answer: what was the version number of that Steam version you downloaded before applying the 1.66 update?
Or did the game come with the V1.66 update already applied?

i just bought the 1.6.6. version. well - i used a trainer, but dont think this is the reason. i did nothing with scriptgs or modding. but when you say its running, i must have another problem. its typicilar on the naval turn.

Since I and another user (see user nehi's post from 15th July) were able to continue the savegame you posted with a standard V1.66 version of the game using no trainer, the trainer might very well be the cause of the crash.

Can you provide a savegame without trainer where it crashes?

But that game also has "enhanced" resources caused by the trainer. :?: (thousands of production points, hundreds of labs etc.) No wonder the game crashes, probably caused by a rollover caused by having too many of a given resource being available.

Can you provide a savegame that crashes without a trainer being used?

i will have a look. but the question is why others can continue with my save. so the use of the trainer cant be the reason

others dont use trainer :lol:

thats most likely THE reason

i dont remember any crash in sp 1.66, but in 1.64 it was quite common, it was just matter of time
