[BNW] Getting sudden and frequent crashes only during the late game in Windows 10.

    When I get into the late game and there are tons of units etc, the game will just close partway through a turn, with no warning. Doesn't freeze, just insta-closes the game. It's usually when I press a button to open the tech screen, choose production, or end turn (particularly the tech screen). On the recommendation of various threads I found, I've tried running the game in Windows 8 compatibility mode, updating my graphics drivers, verifying the game files in steam, and using directX 9 instead of 10/11 (12 is what I have installed, but I've been told it's backwards compatible). Nothing has worked, and I'm desperate for anything else to try.

    I'm playing with Vox Populi, but no other mods. I considered trying to test it without Vox Pop, but honestly I'm not interested in playing the game without it so it's a bit of a moot point. My suspicion is this is a Windows 10 thing and nothing to do with the mod, but I'm not sure.

    I've uploaded a dxdiag file to show my specs, but it's well above the recommended requirements and I usually play on highest settings. I've also tried turning down the settings to lower quality which has also not helped.

    Any help will be hugely appreciated.

    Did this problem begin recently or has it always happened? If just recently, can you associate it with some change in your system (such as a Windows update)?

    I only started playing the game again after a hiatus of several years, and this is my first time playing it on this computer. I suppose that's not very helpful diagnostically, but that's the situation.

    Check in the Vox Populi forum (which I think is here) for known bugs. Also to make sure that you're using the most recent version.
