I am having a problem with the game crashing after about 70 game turns after fighting a battle for a city and trying returning to the campaign map from the battle map.
This has happen on more than one computer. The game has been fully patch in order with patches 1.1 & 1.2 & 1.3 & 1.5.
I save the game I am playing many times.

I am wondering if the save game file is being gradually corrupted after being saved many times.

How do you know that it's 70 turns after taking a city? Do you not take any other cities after that? Does it seem to happen after some other specific event or after taking a specific city?

When I play RTW, I save at least 2 or 3 times per turn- more if I'm fighting a lot of battles- and I've had crashing issues, but usually repeatedly while trying to loot a city I've just taken.

Sorry I should have stated somewhere around approximately the 70th turn in taking a city the game crashes on returning to the campaign map. I do not know the meaning of looting a city. The options are extermination, enslave. or occupy.

Savegames do not usually get corrupted.

I have personally never encountered this in a repeated fashion. Every once in a whiel I will get a crash- I reload and try again. No crash.

There might be some event that causes it. Try doing something a little different. Like exterminate instead of occupy, combine/merge units, save upon end of battle, etc. Sometimes it is a little thing that generated the crash.
