i have been playing distant worlds for a while and i was having a lot of fun with it, but i recently upgraded to windows 10 and i am now unable to play the game. it will get to the screen that shows the quotes like "recharging reactors" and "feeding the giant kaltors" but when that disappears the game crashes showing a message box saying "Distant worlds: universe has stopped working". i have looked around and tried several fixes but none have worked so far, so if anyone could help, i would appreciate it.

Did you try to disable intro movies in the ini file?

Change playmovie 1 to playmovie 0, apparently. Or something very similar to that.

Me? I have a cheap laptop with integrated graphics and a Nvidia 610M.

I upgraded to win 10 (from win 7) and distant worlds launch with no issues. I have not played beyond a few days of a test game, but everything seemed OK.

Both cards are active, and I have not paid attention as to which card is used. I assume the Nvidia one.
