0011040: Game will crash after a few minutes of unpausing
The game will crash after a few minutes of play after unpausing. I've repeated it about 20 times already. It is a very large and long fortress, and it was started in 40.24.

Here is the save:

Quick check if candidate for 0011014. Crash in 3min (lin64). Equip lists are not obstructed. Disbanding all squads keeps the game running for 5+ min (elven siege begins which is not reachable because of crash).

Long live Archcrystal.

Thanks for looking into it! So will disbanding all of the squads fix this problem. And can I just make new squads afterwards, or will the problem persist?

You can keep playing as long as you don't have any fully equipped military dwarf. After disbanding squads crash is easily reproducible by creating one unit squad with "legwear" assigned. My hypothesis is that the raiding system is currently broken at some part, and using it will sooner or later corrupt your data and make military unusable.

Yeah I noticed it only started crashing after we went conquering sites. I'll try military squads without legwear in their uniform and see if that works. Otherwise I'll just have to use the Cave Dragons and Magma for the invasions :)

Thanks again for your help!

Edit: Made 3 new squads without legwear assigned and it still crashed, both over clothing and replace clothing. Disbanded the squads and it was fine.

Other equipment categories could be bugged too, i only checked "armor" and "legwear", and stopped after i got first hit.
