Just tested your saved game went 3-4 turns without crash, did you do something during that turn?

running integrity check give no info to error.
II think I might have sent you the wrong save. It's in the seventh slot but the folder lists it as save six I just noticed. (Sorry about that!) You should be on turn 162 when you load it. Try this one.

that save crashes, integrity check did not help but found a few errors.

from windows event log fault address is 0x0000db4a/40e74a in sub REPAIR_TRAIN 40E5D0

I did notice you were playing with random and borg on? if you play with both off game is much more stable. but that is just my opinion.
game does have several monsters in game already.

Yes, I at first assumed that random and Borg being on didn't have anything to do with it but I've played a few long games since them with random and Borg off and have had no problems at all. The Borg are really fun though, it's too bad they assimilate my games as well as my colonies...

I've played a few long games now with randoms and the Borg both on, but autosave off, and there have been no crashes. I think autosave was the culprit.

Sorry if this is redundant, but does the installer work on an iPad? Looking to play this again, but I don’t have a PC at the moment.

I doubt if that is possible without a lot of windows enumeration

That'd be pretty cool on an iPAd, it'd be like the real star trek Lcars!
Hmm what about the Windows surface tablets I wonder?

i HIGHLY suggest there should be an option to choose between DXWind and dgVoodoo2

it is reliable and easy to set up - it fixes all Win7/8/10 bugs - it fixes mouse lag

There is 3 options in the AIO installer:

- DxWnd (windowed)
- DxWnd (fullscreen)
- no DxWnd (use when using MPR++) -> select this and use any program you like (it doesn't install MPR++) :wink:
I don't know how many bugs is too many but that point is reached somewhere before however many in BotF is.

you misunderstand me, I would trust file myself, but to add to all in one it would be problematic to say the least

btw the new beta All in one is now using the DxWnd proxy files no gui or command prompts to run game
