increased crashing

Postby WHiZSTeR » Wed Dec 24, 2014 10:39 am

has anyone noticed increased crashing with alpha 28? i've never had the game crash on me before 28, and it has crashed on me at least 6 times so far. just curious if anyone else is having problems suddenly.

I have it freeze every few hours. Sometimes hitting Esc fixes it, but sometimes it stays frozen with the cursor showing busy and the only way to get out of that is ctrl-alt-del then task manager to close. This only started happening since the last update.

I'm running win7 on a Dell T5500 with 2x3.33Ghz processors, 36Gb RAM, 2xSSDs and an Nvidia GTX760.

Do you have a massive prison? Are you running background programs? Do you have mods?

My prison is only small; approx 220 cells. I have no mods and the only other program overtly running is Firefox.

Every other time this has happened, no error message was generated; however the freezing up has just reccurred and generated the following pop-up window [typed exactly as seen]:

Code: Select all

Fatal Error

Assertion failed: 'shadow[index] !=0'

c:\jenkins\workspace\prison_architect_windows\pa\contrib\systemiv\lib\tosser\d
array.cpp
line number 245


The above directory and folders do not exist on my computer. I can only assume it's a programming error.
