Hi zaknafein,

It appears to be a localization issue. It's not parsing the numbers for the data files correctly.

As a workaround, if you are able to switch your language settings to English, I think it will work.

Didn't seem to help. I changed it to American English according to the instructions, still crashes,

Can you send me the crash.txt so I can make sure it is the same error?

Language for non-Unicode programs is set to English (United States).

The problem is the core langage for your Windows is non-English. And my initial suggestion didn`t work because it didn`t change that as I thought it would. The game data has a period for the decimal, which is causing the problem because your language settings are expecting a comma.

I have found a work around for Windows 7 (Windows Vista should be similar)
Start Menu =>
Control Panel =>
Region and Language =>
Click Formats tab =>
Click "Additional Settings" button =>
Change "Decimal symbol" from comma (,) to period(.)

I had the same issue.. I run with an English version of Windows 7, but Danish input language/format, which apparently also expects a comma.. same error, thanks :)
