    Hi All,

    I recently installed C2C, and all was going well for the first few hours until I got the message attached. It crashed the game, but it started up again o.k. Then about an hour later it crashed again. Now every time I try to load a C2C save I get the message on clicking "Load".

    This is the first Civ 4 mod I've installed, and for what it's worth the few hours I played were great. I haven't come across this error before, either playing Civ or in general. Planetfall recently installed with no issues, if that helps. I'm also new to mods (for anything), so I could have f'd it up on the install.

    My laptops spec are:

    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
    Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
    System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA

    Memory: 2048MB RAM
    Available OS Memory: 2046MB RAM
    Page File: 2469MB used, 1623MB available
    Windows Dir: C:\Windows
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11
    DX Setup Parameters: Not found
    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI
    System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)

    Card name: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300

    Please note I'm not very technically minded, so if you have a fix can you explain it Dummys guide language please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your issue is almost certainlyl running out of memory on a 2G system. What map size? There's a thread somewhere around here on minimizing memory usage - try searching for 'memory' or something

    As Koshling said, you have 1 GB too little RAM to run C2C. My rig is almost identical to yours with the exception of the fact that I have 3 gigs of RAM, and I can run C2C fine. That is in all likelyhood your problem.

    Thanks for the quick response lads!
    Is there a way to run the game with my current set up, or have I being putting of upgrading for too long now? :)

    Sorry, forgot to clarify Koshling, it's a standard map size, and the game flatlines when the save file size hits 800+ ish.
