0000551: Removing (shift-x) the last meeting zone can cause a crash.
There were animals and a couple dwarves hanging out at the only meeting zone I had. Happened after a save/load and I could repeat the crash. Then I tried creating another meeting zone somewhere else temporary and then removed the zone and it didn't crash. Removing the temporary zone also didn't crash, but no animals/dwarves reached it though.

I accidentally saved trying to exit so I can't provide one to test.
No tags attached.

I suspect this is related to the hospital zone crash, but I won't be sure until I can grab a save where it happens reproducibly. Hopefully something will come up.

Dug through all my saves and found one that reproduces.

Just remove both meeting zones on the main floor and unpause to get it to crash.

I tried your save Greyhawk but it didn't reproduce for me. What steps did you take to get it to reliably reproduce?

Reproduced on my Windows XP. I deleted only Activity Zone # 5 and it still crashed. When I deleted only AZ#4 it worked fine.

Got it. It crashed two out of three tries for me this time. Sadly Dr Watson didn't report anything interesting for me. Thanks for the upload Greyhawk!

I deleted hospital zone in my game with Shift+X and it crashed.
Deleting it with x + select whole zone never crashes (tried a few times).

"Deleting it with x + select whole zone never crashes (tried a few times). "

The zone isn't getting properly deleted in that case, see 0000074.

I just made an attempt to test this myself. Though I'm using an emulator in this case since I'm on a mac.

Results are rather identical when I remove the zone with shift+x. Though instead of crashing it freezes.

using x and selecting the whole zone with enter doesn't cause any crashes.

I cannot for the life in me recreate this...what size meeting zones are you guys using?

Okay, this one is fixed now. It had the same root cause as the hospital crash. Thanks for the save!
