Civilization V crashes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this, When i play Civ V on large or huge maps once the game progresses to a certain point and about half the world is populated if i save the game and try to come back and load it the game crashes once the map is loaded and the "Begin your journey" pops up for you to start.

The only way to get around this that i found was to turn everything to low, which is entirely unacceptable, my system specs are in my system below, i don't see how the game could be having any issue with my system.

Is this something that is common with an easy fix in the registry or nvidia control panel or is it something else?

I have windows 7 64-bit btw.

Lots o' issues with Civ 5, the big game ender has something to do with the number of cities being created reach a point that exceeds how the memory allocation was setup to work in the game... yeah, go QA and testing...

Newho, for whatever reason, I found that by setting the autosave to something like 3 turns that I got a lot more up-time with the game before it hit the bricks, and in many cases could play for extended sessions without hiccups... at least I have lots of saves to refer back to "just in case".

Just be sure your all patched up... before you start a new game... theres some issues with auto patching and loading older sessions. Sadly I know of no, single fix, fixes to do that resolve the myriad issues with Civ 5. Patch up, correct drivers, optimize the rig... and get a rabbits foot.

I kind of figured it was something like this, glad i didn't pay for the game then, it was free with something else i bought.

Thanks for the reply. +rep
