Specifically when during saving is it crashing? Is this a world genned in 34.01 or a previous version?

It happens to me too.I have windows 7 on a pavilion dv6, and, after starting a fortress, it crashes.I tried compatibility mode, but it didnĀ“t work

Edit:maybe it has to do with [^] ?

I've had this too - it crashes as soon as you try to save, regardless of it being an autosave or a specific save request from the escape menu. To reproduce, you can simply start a fortress and then immediately save.

Both of the worlds that I'd generated previously (with this version of DF) that were working yesterday do not work now, but a new world generated today appears to work.

I presume the patch that the original reporter is talking about is the patch to windows that came through automatic updates yesterday - this is also the only obvious change to my system (also windows XP) since yesterday. I tried uninstalling these updates, but it didn't appear to make any difference, although I can't be sure they really uninstalled or that I uninstalled all the patches.

I don't know when it crashed specificly. I see it crash at the beginning of the saving.


We have the exactly same problem.

Yes i speak to the last windows XP update (SP5 i think).

I think it changes nothing in our situation, but there were a blank space so i used it.
