Seems to be what I assume is a memory leak of some sort in 1.7.0.14. I can load it up and play it just fine for the most part, but the longer the game runs the more likely it crashes with an insufficient memory error.

I didn't run into this problem on 1.7.0.6, so I don't think it's my system(Win 7, 4GB mem). All told, it takes an hour or two for it to bomb, but usually I don't find out until I try to save or load a game. If saving, it corrupts the savegame. If loading, it just bombs out. Seems to happen more quickly if I re-load games more often.

Periodically shutting down the application and restarting seems to help avoid these errors. I've currently got my auto-save set to 10 minutes and alternate manual saves between two save files. that way if one gets corrupt I have a couple options to fall back on to avoid losing too much progress.

the game does have a memory leak and has had one for a while. the only work around is to shut down every few hours and relaunch. But the start up time can be a pain.

Yeah, I was going to post the same. 1.7.0.14 seems to have a pretty bad memory leak. The last time I played Legends (can't recall the version), it wasn't as bad as it is currently.

I wonder if it might be related to music in some way. Since I upgraded to 1.7.0.14 my music is somewhat spotty. Usually I see a problem with music right around the time I get a memory error.

Might be coincidence, but I figured I'd mention it.

So, I turned the music all the way down(presumably turning it off) and I didn't have any memory issues this evening. Very limited test, granted, but considering it was fairly well guaranteed to crash before it seems like something to report.

Edit: Strike that. Seems to have just delayed it a bit.

Just curious BeBop, what is your sound card brand and is it integrated or not? Also, what is
the date of your latest video and sound drivers?

I play on a laptop, so audio is integrated. System and drivers are kept up to date, however.
