What version of the game are you running (it is listed in the top-left corner of the title screen)? The few times we've heard of random crashes without an error message it tends to be hardware related. If you've got a savegame where it happens you can e-mail it to rob@longbowgames.com and I'll take a look.

Thanks for the help but im gonna see how it goes and if the problem persists.

Another thing iv noticed is that if i send a large group of say 6 or 7 infantry divisions to a city they get almost to the city then stop and wander aimlessly whilst trying to find a formation to approach the city which eats up time if im trying to send reinforcements. it would be better if they just went in when they were near instead of trying to form an order

Thanks for the feedback, I was working on some more adaptive group placement code but it didn't make it into the final release. We are looking at ways to make moving large groups less awkward and more automated.

Will this new code make it into the next patch do you think?

Why are spearmen so strong? it seems that they can throw spears or javalins and destroy entire units on there own?

Over 15 hours into the game, so far not a single crash, by the way I'm playing the 1.1.2 beta version.

Guess I spoke too soon, got my first crash last night just when I was about to capture the city next to Pella across the bridge, 6 hours of game time wasted because I forgot to save it :(

Hello, I'd just like to pop in and say this is a great game and so far the only crash I have is a persistent one where if I try to move my grouped units from several cities at once the game crashes. I don't remember the exact message, but it's something about # of entrances exceeds limit of a certain city. If it happens again I'll copy/paste it. Oh and I'm running version 1.7

Huh? The latest version is 1.1.2 beta 1; there has never been a version 1.7.

If this ever happens to you again, see if you can make a saved game that makes it easy to reproduce. That's the most useful thing you can give us.

Oh sorry, I was really tired yesterday and misread the numbers. the version I have is the one before 1.2. And it hasn't happened again yet because I'm being careful moving my forces around.

Im having random crashes too. So far two times generally when fighting for the area to the right of your starting city.

I really like the game. Its a bummer losing hours of play and not wanting to start over. Im using the beta patch. Is the orginally game more stable? Ill take stable over play balance fixes.

Not sure how motivated I am to get a repeatable crashing save.

Updating your graphics drivers is always a good idea; I'm glad to hear that the game is stable for you now.
