I was just going to test this pressure polarization thing, and the game crashes three times in a row, every time within four seconds of entering the empire selection screen after choosing the map. I'll download the latest drivers, see if that makes a difference.

Still happening but I fooled around a bit and noticed its only after I choose liir, and only liir, and only if it is my first selection.

I figured out my crashes when I had steam chat up, my corsair link was exploding. Downloaded the new version and smooth sailing since. :googly:

Hi everyone,

since I bought myself a new gaming Computer I just wanted to replay SOTS 2. But imagine my surprise: I get random STDs every time I start the game already in the first or second turn. Please help me! For the first time my machine is strong enough to Counter the time lag in between turns in the later game and now, nothing seems to work!

My Computer has the following Details:

AMD FX 8320 @ 3,5 GHz
16 GB RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660
Windows 7 Ultimate


I also attach the log-file of my latest CTD! Can anyone help me? I am desperate...

Regards,
Janus1978

Yes we are all surprised you got random STDs, the doctor assured me I was clean.
Will take a look into the crash though.

Thanks,

STD = Sexually transmitted disease
CTD = crash to desktop

@ddub: you are evil ^_^

Hi @all,

it has been a week now. I hope, you have finished laughing about my Little mistake. Just for the books: I´ve got NO STD, but CTDs... ;p

Is it a difficult Problem? I have not heard anything from you on that issue... :(

Best regards

You tried the suggestions ddub has on the first page of this thread? If so, have you tried to roll back your Nvidia drivers to the 310.90 driver or the 306.97 driver?

How do I do this roll-back of the NVidia Drivers? My actual Driver Version is 332.21.

I downgraded my Driver to 306.97. But that did not help. The CTD still persists...

Hi@all,

Is there still nothing? No response? I see. You are good at making "very funny" jokes on wrong abbreviations, but when it comes down to help someone with a serious problem, there is no engagement whatsoever. That is a pitty.

Do you have the crash file instead of the log file? That may be more useful in getting a useful response...

posting a dxdiag may help too.

I know in other games people started having random crashes after an update patch and it turned out that the reason they had the crashes was because one or more drivers that they thought were up to date were actually way out of date.
