Game crashes (error window) when trying to load mods


Dec 3, 2010
Experiencing a game crash when I try to load mods - I click the 'mods' button from the main menu, then click the 'Next' button, at which point an in-game loading popup appears, and finally about 15-20 seconds later, an OS error window pops up (i.e. 'Civilization V has stopped working'). I'm trying to run the latest VP/CBO (and all the associated mods which includes: (1) community patch, (2) community balance overhaul, (3) CSD for CBP, (4) Civ IV Diplomatic Features, (5) More Luxuries, (6a) Community Balance Overhaul - Compatibility files (EUI), and (6c) 43 Civs CP. I am using EUI.

I can run the base game (with EUI active) just fine -- the crash only occurs when I attempt to load mods. Click 'next', they begin to load, there is a sound jitter, and a Windows error message popup occurs (running Windows 10).

There is some information in the dx11 .mdmp file (E:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization V\civilizationv_dx11_403694_crash_2018_1_18T16_5_11C0.mdmp): which is as follows:

I followed the steps in the (VP-CBP) install thread (deleted cache, deleted .lua files as indicated, etc.), also validated game files (via Steam), but I haven't yet gotten it to get past loading the mods.

Just wondered if anyone else had encountered this and found the way around it. Thanks!
I don't play with Vox/CBP or EUI, but isn't there a separate version of EUI that is intended to accompany Vox/CBP?
