Game crashed turn 181,ultimate mod 4 as dominion,pls help!:)

Post by nevgav » Mon Jul 19, 2010 7:53 pm

Tried to go a few turns back , tried going avoid on all ships, tried moving all ships to different spots, tried canceling all building on all systems.

I am running Ultimate mod 4 and playing as the dominion (love the mod so far!)

Here is my crash log :

Initialize State: 31
Player Empire: 2 Starting Seed: 1278988514
Galaxy shape: 0 Galaxy Size: 2

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

The crash log you have given is a crash during tatical combat. Most common cause is the use of evade command by human or AI.

what commands are being given during battle by you?

Have you tried avoiding all battles that turn by using auto command?

this may be a single ship type causing problem. If so remove (change ship commands) of each type until crash is avoided.

good luck

Why does Avoid crash so much? I never remember it being this way in Vanilla... but then I never did use it very often :P
Not for the weak of heart...

hrmm well i dont think its with my ships, i have tried moving everything, even goin back a few turns and scrapping my outposts so i do go into combat. So it must be AI that is doing it vs AI i think. any way around that?

Replaced my stbof.ini with fresh one, no go. i definitely think its an AI problem as ive done everything i can to get rid of any combat, even scrapped all my ships, outposts and starbases the turn before. One weird thing is that if i use UE to switch to cardassians it will crash on load, might be unrelated but i can switch to any other race just fine.

Damn it was one of the best games ive had going and wanted to play it out. I am worried too much to try again with this mod as i dont want to have to quit another game again. Any other mods similar to that that i should try? or any last ditch effort or idea to save this game?

save your saved game some where safe (not the recycle bin!) unistall Boft and re-instal may help then replace your saved game.

easiest thing is just to restart.

Stop playing this mod because of such a crash is a bit... extreme.
I mean you also could stop playing BotF as a whole then. ;)

check out the download-section. Most popular are AAM, BOP and UDM3.
UM4 is a bit older. Dunno if Jig is still working on it.

only to restart from much earlier. But this doesn't mean that the same crash won't happen again, unfortunally.

yea I know it's hard to scrap a game but we all had to do it more then one time. Isolating the error and get the game running again can take much time. Better use this time to start a new one.

from my pov: there are many possibilities why it may crash. I like to find out why crashes happen and ofc to solve them. get some xp and find out why it does. ;)

Hooooraaay!

So i managed to figure out it was something the cardassians did that was making it crash. Narrowed it down to a star base battle. In Ultimate editor noticed that the card's star bases were an invalid code. Changing them to star bases did not fix it. But then i got the thought of just moving their star bases to different sectors and back might fix it and voila it is fixed.
