Civ3edit crashing

Evil Homer

Dec 31, 2002
When starting up, Civ3edit gets as far as the splash screen, before crashing and flashing up a message saying the application has unexpectedly quit. Has anyone else experienced this?

I am running 10.2.8 on a iBook 600 combo.
I could post the full crash log, but it is huge :eek: and the only relevant bit seems to be:

Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0xbff7ffd0

Cheers for any help.
Are you editing with v1.21 of Civ3 - it won't work with v1.29b2, though you can use the bic files if copied over to a separate 1.29 install.

Try reinstalling Civ3 - keep your saves and any mod-o-fied stuff.
Problem is, CivEdit won't work if not in the same folder of CivIII (unpatched).

I solved by making 2 installations:

1. CivIII + patch 1.29 and movies, sounds, etc. but WITHOUT Editor. This is to play.

2. CivIII unpatched, without movies, sounds, etc. (to keep it small) WITH Editor. This is to use the Editor.

It works.
