Try disabling all applications that are running which arn't needed for windows to run (So the bare minimum) and then try running Original War. If it works then its an application it doesn't like. If that fails i would try and reinstall Direct X and/or install the latest drivers(If you have beta drivers u could try the last MS Approved version)

Just straight dumps to the desktop. Nothing fancy at all, unfortunately. No logs in the game's directory, but if they exist elsewhere I'll look for them. And try as I might, I could not think of what was different about that day when it didn't crash at all.

Was actually thinking it was due to my dual core processor or some other piece of modern hardware, but when reading through the forums on the OW Support site I saw someone with a Core 2 Duo just like me and it was running fine for him. And if it's a videocard issue, then it affected both my Geforce 7900 as well as my 8800. Though it could definitely be a video driver issue, that would not surprise me.

I'll play around and see if I can't get the crashes to be more predictable, but I'm pretty sure it CTDs due to something I have configured elsewhere on my system. Crash reports on your forums sound nothing like why it pukes out on my system, unfortunately.

What crashes do you get? Do you get any error logs? If so please submit them to http://www.owsupport.com (Site which is making the patches). BTW, if you are using "Low Quality" option then you should change it to the "High Quality" version as the "High Quality" version doesn't have some bugs which the "Low Quality" ver does. (See the launcher's options)

Wonder if this patch would do anything for the crashing I've been having with this game on my current machine. Probably not though, seems like a bizarre incompatibility with my machine. Crashes with the CD installed base version, and with 1.08.

For some reason I've loved this game since first playing it. That people are still patching it is what prompted me to reinstall it a couple of months ago. The storyline is suitably original, so it does credit to the name even if that wasn't its intention. A lot of fun to be had really.

Managed to get it so it didn't crash some Sunday a month or so back, and just left the game running for 15 hours, even when leaving the house. The crashes drive me crazy!
