I am STILL attempting to complete Chapter IV of the campaign after a week of crashing. I'm about out of patience and posts on the Steam forum go unanswered it seems, so I've come here.

The crash happens around the time I discover the southern region of the map, moving into the area to finish the hostage objectives. It does not matter how far back I go with the auto-saves, nor does restarting the entire chapter make a difference. I've done a full restart and even tried a whole new campaign beginning in Chapter IV, and it still happens. I also tried validating the local cache via Steam. There is not a specific trigger (as far as I can tell), but it seems to occur right when I begin taking southern regions of the map OR around the time I am destroying the Menapii marsh camps - can't be certain either way though.

I do not have the error text, but I do have the dump file generated by the game. I've uploaded it to Google Drive, but I don't see a way to attach it to this post. Help would be appreciated, and if you need the dump file just ask for the link. Thanks.

Sorry about that. Email the dump file and your saved game to rick@longbowgames.com. See here if you're not sure where your saved games are stored.
