[suggestion] minidump service

Something like: https://drdump.com/
could help the devs figure out crashes rather quick.

I believe the developers already have their own set of tools for these things. (programs that look through crash dump files)

The game already generates crash dumps in it's directory, so all it takes is for the user to upload it on the mantis bug tracker to an issue - even an issue they create - so that the developers can look into it.

The minidump generation is only a small part of the service, but since its in an external dll that you load and it's used alot,
it is quite reliable and not affected by random code changes.

the biggest pre of services like that is that they collect crashdumps, and group them together for similar crashes.
they also analyze crashdumps, and suggest you to use the 'best' ones, e.g. the ones with the most info in it etc...

its really just a tool that does the grunt work of sorting and prioritizing them for you.

Doesn't windows already offer this for free? As long as you have a code signing certificate that is. And Introversion does have one.
