I turned python exception display on. I also set the great people bar to maximum in bug mod options so it displays icons and percentages. I got no related pyhton exception messages. The only python exception I got is one that I have pointed out a long time ago and posted a fix for it on bug mod thread. For you guys who had this problem I suggest the following: 1 - try to delete the beyond the sword cash (this is under Document and Settings\[username]\local settings\application data\beyond the sword\cash. If the problem persists: 2 - To avoid missing up the display due to this error I suggest that in bug options either to set the great people bar to the simple mode (the default one), or turn it off completely. @Grave I honestly believe that this issue shouldn't delay releasing 1.05 especially as it is not reproducable and most of us haven't ever got it (I judge based on how many people reported it).
