Hello,

I am playing DW Shadows and since installing 1.9.0.14 I have some problems:
1. Game crashes randomly, but quite often lately, with dump:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Distant Worlds - Crash Dump - 1.9.0.14

00:14:44 Samstag, 10. Oktober 2015


System.InvalidOperationException: Das Objekt wird bereits an anderer Stelle verwendet. (Translated: The object is already used somewhere else")
bei System.Drawing.Image.get_Width()
bei DistantWorlds.Controls.MainView.ViiYbbVHftB6iFDt3N9(Object )
bei DistantWorlds.Controls.MainView.PrepareGalaxyBackdrop()
bei DistantWorlds.Controls.MainView.o5eqUFDV77(Graphics , SpriteBatch )
bei DistantWorlds.Controls.MainView.DrawMainViewXna()
bei DistantWorlds.Main.ProgramLoop()


--- COMPLETE ---
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Some portions of the screen sometimes loose background-color and influence spheres. It never is the full screen, but only a part of the screen, but it is always over the full width of the screen (adding a screen shot)

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64Bit with 12GB of main memory. No mods or something like that installed for the game. Latest security patches for windows are installed. I am using a Radeon HD5970 with driver version 14.12 (There is one newer version, which is not entirely stable for another game).


Thanks for any help.

Regards

Hello,

I was able to improve stability quite much by activating the screen refresh limit in the game (currently limited to 50 fps).

Regards

I keep encountering the same bug, and the same graphics glitches. With the latest updates, the game is pretty much unplayable.

I have the base game, plus Return of the Shakturi, Legends, and Shadows (but not Universe) installed, without any mods.

And, much like HTG I assume, I would appreciate if someone would bother to reply to this.
