WBC2 is a classic game i used to play already during the times of Windows XP.

Already back then it suffered from crashing, even in a patched, uncracked state, randomly. Be it upon starting a mission/skirmish, when a round ends (victory/defeat) or even when just switching the screen pages in the post-screen in case your Hero leveled.

I purchased it on GOG in the hope for those random crash to Desktop [to not exist], be it with or without remark in the Windows Error Logs

So after long time i decided to give it a shot again tonight, just to be thrown off the game right in the middle of a Skirmish.

Remark from Logs:
Faulting application name: Battlecry II.exe, version: 1.0.3.0, time stamp: 0x3ee3f791
Faulting module name: Battlecry II.exe, version: 1.0.3.0, time stamp: 0x3ee3f791

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Hardware:
i7 5820k, no overclocking done.
Asus X99 Deluxe
28GB DDR4 RAM (7x Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M4A2400C14), no overclocking done.
GTX 970 4GB (Gigabyte Windforce)

Its probably not my machine, but rather WBC2 since the error prevailed over the years, but anybody got any tips? Running the game in 1280x1024 resolution atm, havent touched compatibility, started from Galaxy on demand.

Hope anybody can help.

Edit 1:
Installed Microsoft Visual C++ 64 and 32bit from 2005 - 2008 - 2010 - turned on Compatibility Mode for XP SP2 and run as Administrator - Crashed within 5 minutes - same remark in logs.

Edit 2:
In the Options, it only displays 1024mb RAM, any way to up this? Already tried adding a Large Address Aware, didnt work.

Edit 3:
I am kinda close/tempted into setting up a VM with Windows XP Home Edition 32bit, just to test if the crashes/low RAM prevail.

Edit 4:
Set up a VM (VMware Workstation), using XP Professional 32bit, drag n dropped WBC2 main and documents (save) folder over, installed Visual C++ and DirectX 9.0 (Aug 2009), now suffering the error of missing Sprites. Been whacking this around now for roughly... 8hours. Probably the VM's 3D acceleration isnt made for this. Guess its time to call for a ceasefire and see if anyone here has any further ideas.

It happens to me too. I have just been saving the game a lot...At least you don't completely lose the game...Hope it (and the sound problem) get fixed cuz the game's really fun.

the time frame to get these crashes fixed has got to be hopeless.
Guess the problem is still prevailing? havent touched it ever since again.
