:help: My game crashes when an opposing city pledges allegiance to my civilization and I accept it. The game continues if I rebuff the city. The error cited is:

This is a game that started at the beginning by using the editor to create a civilization and a land. I've checked the forum and saw where patch V1.29f helped with a similar problem, but otherwise PLS, PLS :cry: don't tell me to "please play the original scenarios for more stable gameplay" :wallbash: . Thanks!
When you started the game, did you then have patch 1.29f installed?
Thanks for your post Isak. I did install patch 1.29f months before creating the scenario and reinstalled it directly after the problems occured with the exact same results. Incidentally, I do not have PTW, I do let the governors controll mood and happiness, and cities that succumbed under battle have not caused the system to crash. Thanks! Joe
Ok, if you can send me a savegame where this is about to happen (using an autosave), I will take a look and see if I can find the error.

Just send it to

I can't think of anything you could change in the editor which would cause this to happen, but let me have a look, and maybe i'll get lucky and find something :)
