Crash after winning the game

    I have received multiple reports about a CTD right after winning the game, or maybe just after winning the UHV. I have tried all the saves in those reports but none of them crash for me. This bug still seems to be present for some people even after the latest fixes. But then also, I assume that if it was a consistent problem for everyone I would receive a lot more reports.

    So I would like to figure out what's happening. Please continue to reports crashes of that nature here with the save attached. There may be some setting active in your games that is responsible for that which I don't have and I would like to figure that out here in a central location.

    Maybe it has something to do with the soundtrack module, I experienced this issue frequently while using it. I'll try to find a relevant save later.

    I opened the save in this post a while ago. I didn't have a crash, but the game "froze" when I used the GP tech discovery. I could move around the map with the mouse, but I couldn't click anything except the unit buttons at the bottom of the screen. (The ones of all units on the same tile) Doing this unfroze the game and I could continue. I don't know if this is related but I just wanted to mention it.

    I don't have any modules installed. IIRC I was using all default BUG options.

    I got CTD after an Ethiopia game, with all modules installed. It seems that graphic settings do not affect it at all. Such crash happens a lot to me in other games and sometimes I could evade it by rolling back a few turns and changing some of my decisions. Unfortunately, I don't have save files for those anymore.

    Update: Just test it without the soundtrack module and it did not CTD.
    I guess no soundtrack for me then)
    Should I continue to use the version with the module to get the bug to report it again in different conditions?

    I know soundtracks for me always cause issues in another mod, mainly with the calculations of income etc with 'A new Dawn mod'. So odd but seems soundtracks affect more then just the sound perhaps?

    If you turn off sounds does the crash still occur?

    Thanks for mentioning this, it might help figuring out the source of the error. Just to confirm, you are using DoC, not one of its modmods that are around here?

    The soundtrack module contains more than just sounds, it also has its own XML which if not properly integrated/kept up to date with the rest of the mod can lead to errors.

    I just tried to see what happens if you turn the ingame sound off and it did not crash even with the module installed.
    But then, a wierd thing happened - I turned the sound on again and this time it did not CTD.
    I do not know what can cause it - I just restarted once my PC since yesterday and renamed mod folders couple times (to change mod versions) but I do not think that it has affected files in any way. Or has it?

    I got this crash in Russia game. Same settings and modules, but it seems that it does not happen with ingame sound turned off.

    What triggers the crash? I can end the turn without issues.

    Well, the problem is that is hard to tell. In Ethiopia case it happens after 2 turns if the ingame sound is on, when the game is being finished. This bug seems very rare, maybe it is some of my setup which cause it.

    This may have been fixed with the latest update.
