Hi, fist, i'm an french player of company of heroes and my english are not very good...
I have make an 8 players map with the worldbuilder. When i test it, the game stop instantly and return to windows (XP home SP2) in very short time. I can't find the problem because it's never the same. But i have never an error message. In the most case, the game shut down when i push the button to blow an bridge. I love my map and i really want play on it. Anyone can help me? You can download the map here: http://coh.fr.free.fr/Big_town_river_beta.rar

Thank you very much

I hate to say it but your map might just be to big to handle. the error you descriped can happen when the game gets overloaded, and usually crashes when an explosion occurs, like the bridge. The map has a lot of buildings and these will create a big load on the computer, esspecially when near water since the object has to be rendered twice (once for object the other for the reflection). try running the game on lower graphic and see if the problem goes away, else you may have to remove some of the buildings (maybe replace them ruins). I had a similar problem on one of my early maps (I remade the entire map, after deleting it in frustration) the map was industrial complex and it was about 5-6 times larger than the released version, and had a tone of buildings, when ever a fuel container or vehicle blew up the game crashed. I have seen other people with similar problems and all were on rather large, building filled maps.
I feared this answer. I deleted the maximum of objects (between 40 and 50) and I succeeded in blowing up several bridges before the crash. On the contrary, soon I had another message: an error of AI!
I despair. I am really disgusted :(; I had crossed several months there to create it.
