It's been bothering me that this map seems to crash to desktop at about 50% so I was looking around on the forums and didn't find anything interesting other then some refrences to the file size of the map and weather or not the installer was bugged.
Anyway I desided to look into the problem further as it seems it was only happening on some servers, other servers have been running the map with upwards of 40 players. So I opened the all seeing eye and sorted all the servers running Rheinuebung and noticed some had a capital R and other a lower case r. When I tried to join a server running "Rheinuebung-1944" the ctd bug occured but when I joined a server running "rheinuebung-1944" it loaded just fine. That must mean the the bug is server side so I looked at what type of server was running "rheinuebung-1944" and noted it was a linux server. The servers running "Rheinuebung-1944" were non-dedicated windows servers. I am a reg on a windows server and have experienced the ctd bug.
So there must be something wrong with the windows server files....
I guess the capital letters in All-Seeing Eye arn't significant, the capitalized servers seem to be the non-dedicated ones. I just tried to join another empty windows server and got in, so now my problem is releated to more then one person online on a windows server. Anyway I think this whole post just changed into a shot in the dark.

ah, that sounds possible. a dev should definetely look at this! The only time i managed to play Rheinübung was on NagNag today, although i don´t know what kinda server that is...

I managed to get the map to load now on an empty server
Well I've been leaning toward it since my first post so here goes. Maybe the problem has something to do with there being more then one person trying to enter the game, releative to the type of server it is running on. In one particular instance I was on TS with the single person who got onto the server and as we/others tried to load he was seeing our disconnect messages. Kinda like the bugs on other maps such as Tarawa.

Well, add me to the list of crashing to desktop when loading this map. Tried to join Glory of War's server (with 5 people in there at the time) and crashed back to desktop twice.
