Title: Orz Marines Crash (Win98 SE)
Post by: Cybuster on December 11, 2002, 08:05:18 am
Well, I probably should've reported this sooner since this happened a few weeks back, but life got hectic for a bit. I'll try to recall what I can.

I'd been enroute to meet the Zoq-Fot-Pik on their homeworld, when an Ur-Quan Kzer-Za Dreadnought fleet intercepted me in Hyperspace. Naturally, combat ensued and I dispatched an Orz Nemesis to meet them.

The first two fights went fine. The third also went in my favor, as a number of landed Marines finished the Ur-Quan off from within. Just as they were about to re-dock with me and the fourth Ur-Quan enter the fight, the game crashed.

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the console log; my system seems to have frozen at the time, though it could've just been that the program had an 'illegal operation' and shut down. It's hard for me to remember.

If desired, I can probably get back to that part of the game again in a day or two and spend tons of time reproducing similar circumstances and seeing if it crashes or not. Please inform me if this is requested or not.

Of note: My turret was rotated at the time...about 90 degrees sideways since this is my preferred mode of firing. Also, I was making a turn and thrusting, so as to avoid a planet, at time of crash.
