when trying to play the game, after starting and selecting settings (god, difficulty,...) the game dependably crashes at 78-79% loading. Any ideas how to solve this?
Or, what's the mail of the developers to send the crash file to? :-)
Cheers, michael
No posts in this topic were marked as the solution yet. If you can help, add your reply is the address to send crash files to, according to their FAQ.

I haven't had that problem, but I did notice that as the game loaded, it reserved more and more RAM, up to about 2GB. Any chance your system is running a little bit of RAM? Also, if you haven't tried turning down the graphics detail, try that; it supposedly makes a large difference on map loading and generation (which is apparently done by your GPU, according to some comments by the dev who coded it).
