    Ok, I'm not sure if this is just RFC Rand, RFC, or Civ 4 BTS in general, but I got a CTD recently playing a 3000BC Very Low Likeness America game.

    Windows error reporting told me that the game was shut down to save the computer from reading memory incorrectly (can't remember the name of the control you can turn on or off for certain programs to keep windows vista from checking memory usage.) EDIT: it's called Date Execution Prevention... DEP

    Surely this isn't a Civ 4 BTS proplem...I've never had it before and I've been playing (a LOT) with the latest patch since shortly after it was released, but I don't see how it could be just an RFC problem either...

    Anybody have any Ideas?

    So I'm not imagining it. I'm having the same problem with Windows 7.
    Usually happens when you found a city.
    It's strange that if you do something else for a while and then try to load that same game, it loads fine.

    Can somebody please confirm the following save crashes every time? (When you press return, click catapults for the next builds otherwise you can't reproduce the crash)
    NB: well goddammit it doesn't crash anymore. This is annoying.
