I 'm blowing up an advent carrier and it mini-dumps everytime!
sending the mini-dumps now.
Also had a few mini dumps for just changing map list. ie to scan back and forth between small, medium, and large maps.
Well this should keep them busy for the weekend
I have no clue about the Advent carrier explosion causing a minidump, but the map switching is related to having custom maps already on file. You need to remove them from the directory where they're stashed:
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\Galaxy
Vista - C:\Users\username\appdata (a hidden folder, so you need to select view hidden files from tools/folder options/view)\Local\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\Galaxy
*ALSO* Regardless of OS, make sure you remove any listing of the custom maps from your Galaxy folder in the root directory of your game (not everyone will have them listed there).
If you want to save your maps, keep them in a temporary folder until the final release on Wednesday, at which point there will be one Galaxy folder for vanilla Sins and one for Entrenchment.
