0011183: [Dwarf Fortress] Loading Save Crash: V.44.12.r2 (Crashes on loading)
When loading a save, you crash with no windows box back to desktop. Loading gets to various points, and only in the final stages of loading the save.

Sorry gang! Ran this ticket out early. The only steps is just to load up the game. It should crash on load up. Thanks!

Please compress the region1 folder (e.g. as a zip, rar, 7z, tar, etc.) and upload that (DFFD should take it if it's not too big). The log you uploaded to DFFD isn't particularly relevant, and apparently I can only download individual files from Mediafire, which isn't practical since your save has at least a thousand files.

Sorry, was busy. Thanks for the patience.

I was able to reproduce the crash. Unfortunately, running your world.sav file through df-savecheck (https://github.com/lethosor/df-fileutils [^]) appears to indicate that it is corrupted:
data/save/bug-11183-crash-load/world.sav: chunk 10490 (start=13630461, length=4607): Compression error: 
unexpected EOF
data/save/bug-11183-crash-load/world.sav: 6177354 bytes unread, 13635072 bytes read

I suspect that restoring from a backup is your best bet here, if you have one.

Was your disk was low on space while writing the save? If not, you might try disabling COMPRESSED_SAVES in init.txt. (0002017)

I have 609 GB's free. This is not a space issue, i had low memory, perhaps that's what happened
