Probably the most frequent source of crashes I've seen is during the land movement phase--sometimes when I try to move a unit, the program for some reason allows an illegal move (ie, even if I try to move beyond the unit's movement range, I get a cross-hair instead of an X), and if I then try to actually move the unit to the illegal location, the map screen whites out and the game freezes. This happened to me 3-4 times during a recent German movement phase...
While I suppose I could avoid this type of crash by carefully double-checking what the computer is allowing me to do, it is not that easy in crowded movement environments (lots of units, diff types of terrain), and moreover, the whole point of a computer game is so that I don't have to worry about stuff like this.
Hi 76mm, I have been meaning to say hello to you, but after reading this post by you I am not sure how I would be received , wow are you having problems. There is enough things wrong with the game without you having to deal with game crashes, white screens, game freezing, X's and crosshairs. I have not tested for a few weeks so I went back yesterday with fear in my heart about what I would find, but alas I saw none of these things, every phase of the game seemed to play fine on my computer. Well almost every phase we still have some naval problems.
Many years ago a cartoonist in our newspapers named Al Capp made up a cartoon called Lil Abner, it ran every day in our newspapers. What was interesting about the comic was about a person he named Joe Btfsplk [not misspelled that was his name] he was otherwise named Joe Schmoo or Joe Phtttt because where ever he went a black cloud hung over his head, meaning what could possibly go wrong, did. But then that was just a cartoon not real life, right 76mm
I think you are having computer problems 76mm, not sure as I am not computer oriented, or it could be real game problems, just think four or five years from now when you are kicking my butt in net play [I know big time zone difference] we will look back on this, open a up a good bottle of German beer [your choice]and laugh about all these problems with MWIF.
Just teasing Tom, the only thing I care about is that you and your family remain in good health through the years so you can enjoy MWIF.
