0005303: Dwarf Fortress Crashes upon Accepting World Generation.
Whenever I try to generate a world for the new release, the game crashes as soon as I accept the world created. It occurs as soon as I press the key for using the world as it is if I stop it early, or for just accepting the world if I let it finish.
No tags attached.

Are you using the SDL or the Legacy version? Try switching what version you're using and see if that has an effect.

Using both versions, each one crashes upon accepting the world.

I had an identical error when I was playing a game located in the C:\Dwarf Fortress directory where I keep my game. However, when playing from the download directory (“C:\Users\USER_NAME\downloads\...”) the error went away. This was for both SDL and Legacy versions. What directory is your game in, and have you tried moving it around?

my Directory is C:\DF and it won't work there. I don't know why it would work just by having it located in my downloads folder. I'd rather be able to have it where i want it to be rather than be forced to place it in a certain location.
