7.6 still crashes like 7.2: What's up

Postby LCcmdr » Wed Dec 20, 2017 8:12 pm

I played 7.2 until 7.6 upgrade became available. Somewhere over 80 turns, the game starts crashing on a fairly regular basis. Is anyone else suffering this problem?

thanks

The original NTW game released in 2010 was designed for 32 bit OS which were predominant at the time. The change to 64 bit OS has presented more issues as CA noted in their Mod summit awhile back. As you're well aware they also had MAJOR problems with their initial release of Rome 2

Other NTW mods also have these issues. I've always had fairly stable campaigns playing on my older dual core with a 32 bit OS

Send me your last few save_game files and I'll run them on my 32 bit OS. Sometimes it can work around the glitches that the 64 bit OS gets hung up on.
Check your pm for info.

Lord Davn,
I spoke to a techie chap at Best Buy yesterday. I am looking to set up a dual boot Win 7 32 bit along side Win 10 64 bit. He said it can be a pain in the a** but doable. 80% of my gaming material is from 8-12 years ago. I have to get this mod working! :c)

The NTW3 Campaign mod works fine on the 32 bit OS it was designed for, that's why I keep my older Win7 dual core around. Personally I think that was one of the big issues for CA when they released Rome 2 in Sept. 2013. The major problems they were having necessitated the modding summit in early 2014 to have modders come in to help them fix it. 32 vs 64 OS: https://fossbytes.com/32-bit-vs-64-bit-windows-os-comparison-difference/
