So I tried searching for this issue but haven't found anything here or on Google. I have a very specific crash that occurs every time I complete the Advanced Space Scanner research. As soon as the new discovery screen exits, the game crashes. With no exceptions. I replayed a few times and eventually as luck had it I did not get the scanner completion and game continued until the next time the scanner completed, it crashed again. Not sure what to do at this point, it's very frustrating as that particular session was getting to a very interesting point and now I can't go further.
Hope someone out there can help. I've tried reinstalling (kept my saves), adjusting dosbox cycles, copying original CD over the GOG files, nadda.
