Well, the title says it all. On this particular game, it crashes to desktop everytime at the same point when I perform the same exact actions.

Here's my debug.err:

Sorry to bump up a post that was four years ago, but the problem this guy had is the same problem I'm having now.

I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one who's had this problem...but I'm now a bit worried to have found this problem posted by somebody else and it never got resolved...

  I suggest that you go back a few saves and,  in-game,  destroy the pirate ship (if you can find it);  then switch off auto-save and click on a few turns to see if the game still crashes.

Version 1.0 is extremely buggy.

 

Update the game before doing anything else.

Unfortunately, there's only one of my save games so far where there are pirate ships, but I'll try it.

I really hope I don't have to update, because Impulse thinks my registration key is either wrong or expired, and it being wrong makes no sense really since I've entered it previously, read that it was right, and Impulse even lists it, whereas if I type in a wrong key it won't list that. I'd probably have to purchase a new key to update it...
