    My game of PA has always been crashes, but before it was very infrequent. Now with Titans the game will crash every single time I try to play a game with a friend. Here's how it goes, I load Titans and it crashes when I try to join a game. I open up Titans again, it crashes when loading the game. I open up Titans again, I play for 10-15 minutes, it crashes again. I open up Titans and play for 5 minutes, and what do you know it crashes again. On and on after this it will crash a few second after I reconnect with the game in progress.

    Some help and advice would be helpful on how to fix this. I would provide you with some files, but I don't know which ones; so just ask me.

    Thanks,
    Ricron

    What OS are you using? If Linux or Mac, which version and what video card. If Windows, can you post a DxDiag.txt? You can make one of those by pressing <WinKey>+R, typing "dxdiag", and pressing "Save All Information...". You can upload the resulting file here using the "Upload a File" button on this forum.

    Could you try increasing your virtual memory to at least 14 GB? It's a bit on the low side currently and that may cause those crashes. Instructions are here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-virtual-memory-size#1TC=windows-7
    (Sadly only for Windows 7, but it should be similar for 10)

    If that doesn't work, can you also post a PA log? You can find those here: "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Uber Entertainment\Planetary Annihilation\log". Just copy-paste that whole thing in the address bar of Explorer. You'll find a whole bunch of log files there. The easiest way to find the correct one is to just delete all of them, then start PA and make it crash. Then there will be only one new log file with the crash in it.

    You mean infrequent crashes? There can be many causes for that, it might not be the virtual memory thing, that's actually kind of rare. Can you upload a DxDiag.txt as well?

    The crashes are very frequent. It happens 95% of the time when i attempt to go into a game. Also thank you for replying! Like this has been happening for ages and I'm determined to fix it.

    Start by updating your really old drivers from 2014.
