Game Crashes

Post by Jonty »

I am a fairly new player of Transport Tycoon, having only discovered it in
the last year or so. I recently downloaded TTDPatch 2.0.1 alpha 42, some
new graphics and TTDAlter, and ever since them my game seems to crash every
three months i.e 31st March 1977, 30th June and so on. If I start a new
game it works for a year but then starts crashing again. Can anyone help
me?

The patch should make a crashlog. Every time there's a crash, it'll
write a file like crash000.txt. If you post one of those files I can
have a look and maybe get an idea why it's crashing.

Thanks for replying to my message. I have had slight difficulty getting the
massage because the computer I access the internet on is not the one I play
TTDX on, and I have been away for a few days since then. However, I now
have the crashlogs and have attached them to the massage. Thanks again for
replying to the post so quickly!
Those crashes seem to be happening while a train is being refitted. Did
you try to refit those trains?

I haven't been refitting trains when the game crashed, but it has crashed
once before when I was refitting. Might it have something to do with the
fact that I use TTDAlter, which in a way refits trains and other vehicles so
that they hold much more cargo?

No, that couldn't be it. From what I looked at, I can only explain this
crash if a refitting window is open at the time of the crash.

I guess I need to look at the savegame itself. Can you email me the
file together with your ttdpatch.cfg so I can try it out?

Sorry to be a bother, but it turns out that the crash files I sent were from
an earlier problem that I corrected by upgrading to TTDPatch 2.0.1 alpha 42.
They were when I tried to refit a train, but upgrading fixed it. It turns
out that my current problem doesn't create a crashlog. As I said before,
the game crashes every three months, but instead of displaying an error
message, it just locks up and I have to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and end the
process.

Sorry again for getting it wrong!

Oh, I guess we just have different terminology... when you say "crash"
you mean what I call a "hang".

Anyway, email me your savegame and ttdpatch.cfg and I can have a look.

Here are my three main savegames and my ttdpatch.cfg file. It might be
worth noting that the game crashes on every game I play, including new games
in any climate. If you look at the savegames you can see how i've got
better at play TTD in the past few weeks!

You can't attach files here, this is not a binary group so they'd get
dropped by most servers. Just email me.
