0003865: Crash when trying to save
Every time I try and save my current fort, DF crashes.
Try and save.
The only thing I've done of note between this save and the last working save was build some raise bridges in the tree farm lining the S edge of map and issue a mass dump of all the stone on the tree farm's lower level.

Put save file on Dwarf Fortress File Depot in bugged saves section named "Bugged save for Bug Tracker 0003865"

Is it crashing and failing to save or is it crashing during the cleaning objects phase?

Reminder sent to: AWellTrainedFerret

We probably can't do anything with this report unless you upload your save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

Did you recently change the game's location on your hard drive, or make any other changes to drivers, system settings, etc.?

He did, he just messed up the link:

Just to follow-up, it doesn't seem to get to the cleaning objects phase; I'm crashing on both 31.18 and 31.19 on Vista. Also doesn't seem to be any raw changes.

world.sav file gets left in the current folder.

this is related to my issue 0003893

my issue reports the same save game crashing (which nobody seems to help with)

I know it's been a while....and since my thread was closed and pointed here 'll add something here instead

I was playing on my 31.18 copy last night and was got the save crash again

now I did see the cleaning objects phase start before the crash occured unlike my previous bug report did

and again.....it produced an error related to unreadable memory

I'm posting the error log details so you know what I mean

Application popup: Dwarf Fortress.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x5ed195ec" referenced memory at "0x7ff50007". The memory could not be "read".

I'm guessing that either my machine has issues with memory or there's a bit of loose code somewhere

Additional: autosaving is unaffected by this error so you know

Since save compatibility has been broken since this report, it's hard to tell whether this crash has since been fixed.
