DFFD isn't working for me at the moment.

I have one too. Quote from my failed attempt to put it on DFFD (I think it's overloaded):

"Pure vanilla. I played fortress mode for a bit, after having advanced the world to 1st Granite 501 via creating and killing adventurers. The game crashed around 27th Slate 501, while my dorfs were wandering around chopping trees and such; I reloaded it no problem, redid a big designation, saved, and tried to load again...

aaaaand that's when it started not working.

Note: The dorf I had set up to be the expedition leader was the queen instead on embark. She's the expedition leader now too because I made her so, but yay passing down titles works proper-like now! At least, I assume that was intended behavior."

Have the same issue: http://i.imgur.com/FT3YUlz.png [^]
Restarted a couple of times to find a graphics pack which I liked, eventually used the default ASCII set. Restarted one more time for the resolution and then it crashed.

Here's another save: https://www.mediafire.com/?daf81bw9vjmmwje [^]

Exactly the same circumstances for this one. My fortress in a brand new world started crashing shortly after the first autosave and now it won't load at all.

Also, I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but in both saves I was in the process of diverting a river around the walls of my fortress.

...aaaand another one. I can't play any fortress for more than a few months before this happens.
