Hello Thadir,
which OS are you using (Win XP, 7, 8.1, 10) and is it 32 or 64 bit?
Can you upload your logs as specified here https://forum.subterraneangames.com/threads/please-read-how-to-report-a-bug.4689/


No problem here ya go. And windows Home Premium 7


Hello Thadir,
I can not see any issue in the log. It looks like a normal session without problems.

Did you restart the game since the issue occured?
In this case all logs overwritten, we need a log from a play session where the issue occured.
If it happens again, then please grab the log before restarting the game.
Also when did it happen?
Only once or multiple times?
On game start or in the middle of playing a map and if which map?
Do you use Windows 7 32bit or 64bit?

Yeah I restarted since then euhm 64 bits. And when it reakeurs (it does) ill re post. But seeing the time here it will not be today.

Thank you and please add any additional info you have (eg. questions above).

I think I know what coused it it was a combination of the game (wtich still a memory hogg) and discord. I havent been able to reproduce it. (and I have been playing over 3 hour sessions).

So I haven't played the game for a while but today I took it off the shelf. While playing mission 10 I got a windows error that memory was running low. I dismissed it and went back to playing. Shortly after I thought better save, so I did and then the game crashed. crash.dmp error.log output_log.txt

Hello Frederik Blirup,
at very intense play the game can take up to 6GB RAM, but shouldn't be more than 4GB RAM at normal play.
You have 8GB RAM installed and windows takes 1-1.5GB, so if you have 8GB it should be always enough.
However my guess is you have other software running while playing the game which takes a lot RAM as well.
There must be at least 3GB used elsewhere to cause out of memory issues with the game on your system.

Can you right click the windows task bar (bottom bar) and start the windows task manager.
Can you open processes tab and sort them by memory usage?
There is likely something big on the top which occupies a lot of main memory while you play.
What is it and can it be closed while playing WftO?
