Summary0010714: 8gb memory dump / complete system freeze / crash on loading save
DescriptionI saved my game, both dwarf therapist and armok vision were open at the time.

I then immediately tried to reload the save and my entire system froze, after reloading I noticed the memory usage going up and up and up.

Once it reaches my whole 8Gb, my whole system freezes. You can prevent this yourself by ending the process before it uses all of your memory.

I have no idea what caused this save to corrupt, it wont load on my desktop and laptop, even outside of LNP.
Steps To Reproduce [^]

download region 1 save, loading freezes on loading text and ram usage increases to max which freezes entire system.

world.sav does not appear to be corrupt (at least, it's compressed properly). Do you have any recent backups? Are you short on hard drive space? I'm wondering if other .dat files in the region1 folder are corrupted.
Edit: [^] didn't turn up any compression issues in any other .dat files...

I have never played with backups on as I've never had issues with a save file corrupting like this, so no there is no backup. As for harddrive space I have 2Tb free and have tried the save file on both my desktop and laptop. [^]

This is a quick screenshot I took a second before having to end the process on task manager. This is where the memory leak occurs which causes both my desktop and laptop to completely freeze up.
