It's only like 1100 AD and I just have my continent explored and I'm the only one on it. When I load in my game from the menu, it loads fine, but if I try to reload a later save from the game, Civ4 crashes to desktop. I'm assuming it's a memory problem since it doesn't happen with earlier saves, but I have 2 gigs and my system well exceeds the requirements for the game. Or it's a Vista problem since Vista sucks in general. Either way, my game shouldn't be crashing so I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem, particularly in Vista. I tried Solver's patch, but it didn't fix this particular crash. I did notice my games load a lot faster now though. I can't imagine what will happen when I actually start exploring the rest of the world and meeting the last few civs. The game crashes every time I load in my latest save during a game but loads in fine once I crash, reload the game and load it in from the main menu.
