Summary0000758: Load out crash
DescriptionI'm not sure what's happening, but if I choose a maximum size and 'embark', the game crashes. If I choose more than 4x4, the game crashes on embarking. It'll let me 'prepare for my journey carefully', and then crash when I hit 'embark' with the following message:

'This program has terminated in an abnormal way'

It takes a few minutes for this to happen. When I -don't- prepare carefully, -don't- move the local area around and -don't- maximize it, I can play normally.
Steps To ReproduceChange size of local area, prepare carefully. Crashes before finishes loading from embarking, before the 'Strike the Earth!' screen.
TagsNo tags attached.

I've gotten this too; it happens when I choose an embark size too large. I can still embark with, say, 8x8, but any larger than about twice that causes this crash.

I suspect it's the program actually running out of memory to hold all the 200 Z-layers of data, really.

How much RAM do you have and are you playing with Graphics on?
Is it consistent on all maps and with all non-uniform size layouts (IE: 5x4, 6x4, etc) - what size are you embarking on now?

Bear in mind there are now ~ 100 Z-levels per area, and embarking on a 4x4 means that you'll be putting a large strain on your PC.

I suspect this is a duplicate of 0000136, but am waiting on feedback from the reporter.

I'm a bit of a purist, so I have no mods attached. Checking the init file reveals graphics are off.

I'm running with 3 GB of RAM. Vista 32-bit, service pack 2.

Had a small correction. I can 'prepare for journey carefully', as long as I don't alter the start out size at all.
