Game freeze
« on: April 04, 2012, 10:35:06 am »
I use windows xp sp3. Processor Athlon AMD 64x2 dual core 4200.
Game always hang when I try particular missions. Autobattles are unaffected. Here game log. I have tryed different garaphical options and game settings but it does not matter. Sincerely yours, Styar.

 ::) My first guess here is that it is the fault of the random map assembly that takes a long time to finish for certain maps. Try to give your computer more time, before you assume that it hangs.
It will probably load +mansion or +city2 eventually.

Best bet would be uninstall the game, remove all remaining data related to UFO: AI (keep savegames, of course) and install from the current nightly builds from the download page.

Stable version works normally. But here we post problems with developers version. Hope this hanging problem will be solved. I have tryed to reinstall dev. version but it is still hanging on tactical missions.

Here new log. Last dev version. Minimal video settings (but I'm afraid that does not matter in this case). Game hang on the skirmish. Hop this can help to fix the problem.

Please open the in-game console with Shift+ESC, type logfile 2 colse the console (via ESC) then reproduce the problem.
Your ufoconsole.log is cut in half due to filesystem caching, this command forces flush the cache to disk on every write. Please upload the crashdump.txt if you can find it too.

Thanks!
