I play with DX9 and settings all on minimum or low. I have Windows 7. 2GB RAM and a 2.13GHz Intel Core i3 CPU. I have approx 19GB free on my HDD. Not had issues with CIV5 before really, and using the R.E.D mod fine, until I get to turn 26 and I apparently invade a capital city of another civilization and it is destroyed, thus I am meant to take over their borders (this computation appears to crash the laptop) I got this crash report: Spoiler CRASH REPORT : Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: CivilizationV.exe Application Version: 188.8.131.524 Application Timestamp: 4fc5059d Fault Module Name: CvGameCoreDLLFinal Release.dll Fault Module Version: 184.108.40.206 Fault Module Timestamp: 4fc50810 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 0002ef0d OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 2057 Additional Information 1: 0a9e Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789 Additional Information 3: 0a9e Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789 Read our privacy statement online: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?link...8&clcid=0x0409 If the online privacy statement is not available, please read our privacy statement offline: C:\Windows\system32\en-US\erofflps.txt I hope this can be resolves and it isn't going to remain with me.
