Summary0002610: Crash during game load, runtime error
DescriptionRandomly, during loading a saved game (fresh, as first save in this fortress), the game crashes after a long period of disk activity, with a Visual C++ runtime error message "The application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way".
Steps To ReproduceHere's one such saved game: [^]
Here, the world was generated as "medium region", the embark size was 5x5, a volcano was present on site, there was a cavern collapse message immediately after embarking, and there was a named hydra keeping to itself in a map corner. The game lasted for six months before saving.

Does the errorlog.txt mention anything interesting?

Unless I missed some obscure option, errorlog was not even generated.

Reminder sent to: krige

Are you using a 64-bit OS? If so, you may want to turn off the init option for COMPRESSED_SAVES -- see 0002017.

While this game was (probably - I don't know the exact specs for that PC, apart from that it's running 7) saved on a 64-bit system, I had this happen a few times on my 32-bit XP as well... a few version ago. Well, thanks for the tip, will definitely use it :)

Alright, we'll chalk it up to 0002017 then.
