    I have a problem with this and WM as well where after so many turns the game will crash due to memory allocation error. I can restart the last save and play past that point without problem, so I know it is partially my machine at fault.
    I can live with this, but I have forgotten where to change the auto save interval (some ini file I can't find after a quick look.) I want to make it save after every turn. Can someone point me in the right direction here?

    Or, use the RifE Launcher, hit the "Edit ini file" button, and scroll down to the AutoSaveInterval line. ;)

    In Documents/My Games/Beyond the Sword/CivilizationIV.ini, search for "save" you should find
    Code:
    AutoSaveInterval = 4
    Wow, what a sametimeninjathing.

    I often wonder what the effects of making this auto-save every turn would be. I actually suspect that many of the memory allocation errors occur during the auto-save process (since I almost always lose the full 3 turns).

    I set it to autosave every turn. Biggest time saver ever. Haven't noticed any more crashes than usual.

    I have it to autosave every turn and to save 50 previous saves, and it very rarely crashes for me :)
