From: Miami, Florida, U.S.A.
I had another one of my "crash while saving the game" last night and I was so frustrated (it seems to only happen to me) that I was ready to trash the whole thing and uninstall DWU.
These crashes ONLY happen when saving and they've been with me since DWU came out. I've tried to figure out the cause but to no avail. It not memory, its not size. Last night was a 100 star 4x4 map and the game had barely begun. I just manually set my ship designs and some initial orders. I wanted to ssve the setup because I'd be doing some different things for testing and I didn't want to repeat everything. As soon as I click save As and select the filename, it crashed as it often does.
Here's the stack trace. If ANYONE has similar problems (Crash while saving) please let me know and maybe we can determine what our computers have in common.
System.OutOfMemoryException: Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.
