1. Yes, and I am able to continue past the prior CtD until another one occurs. 2. I didn't modify it myself, played with the clean release. 3. Yes, or rather, I used whichever patch Steam autoloads onto the game. 4. Large. Is this too large? 5. 1024x768, maybe 1366x768. Could this be the cause? 6. That game's was around 50, but this isn't particularly relevant I believe - it can happen within one turn of start or ten. 7. I want to say 5.8 - sorry, I'm not at home right now. Maybe 6.1. 8. Because I have never seen anything related to Founding Fathers pop up while playing this mod yet, and I'm pretty sure either I or the AI would have something by now. Unless it takes until the 17th century for them to appear(which isn't a criticism, just an explanation), I think it may be that when one triggers, the game crashes rather than loads the event. You would probably know this better than I could.
