Moosh, the only thing you can do is abandon your game and start another. I started a DEAD DIV GAMES folder and whenever I came upon unrecoverable CTDs or WOCs, I placed the last save in the dead folder. I started another game and would periodically go back to the folder and try to play those games again. Rarely one would actually play on, but most were RIP. When my folder got upwards of 20 games I decided to stop playing RiFE (Steam had a great sale and I picked up a bunch of games from there!). However, after some Borderlands, Crysis Warhead, Fallout 3, Indie games, etc. I recently went back to RiFE (actually hoping the new version was out and, like everyone else, disappointed it was not). Sadly, my first game crashed like yours. My second game same thing. I have a new computer with i7 processor, 9 gb of RAM, nVidia 260, etc. and play only Normal speed games on a Standard size map. Honestly, the only thing you can do when you hit a wall with the current version games IMO is to start a new game and stand by for the new version which hopefully will solve these problems in addition to giving us the much talked about new content.
