About a month ago I ran the World War Tournament during a 3-day LAN event in town here. During which we featured several custom made maps. However in the course of the tournament a few issues came into play involving the custom maps as follows.. 1. I play tested each map on my system briefly beforehand to make sure they worked and looked like they were worth playing, as well as representing their battle well. Any maps I ran into that crashed or had erros I threw away. Leaving me with maps that ran perfectly fine on my machine. 2. We had a variety of machine's present at the LAN. However, after loading the maps on each machine, only a select group of machines loaded the maps without crashing to the desktop. These machine's seemed to be the ones running the better systems and similiar to mine in specs. My specs as listed below Machine #1 Athlon 64 3000 1 Gig of Corsair TwinX PC3200XL (Xtra Low Latency) Asus 256MB GeForce FX 5700 Asus K8V Motherboard Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS Asus DVD/RW 16x Asus CD-RW 52x Maxtor 160GB 7200 rpm 8MB cache Machine #2 Athlon XP 2000 1 Gig of Kingston PC2700 AGPTEK 256MB GeForce FX 5600 MSI MS-6380-E Motherbard MSI built-in Sound (AC-97) MSI DVD 6x Mitsumi CD-RW 52x Western Digital 80GB 7200 rpm 2MB cache Both of these machines loaded and ran the maps. the other machines that did as well matched or were better then either. So this leads me to believe the issue may involve simply system requirements for the maps where CTD is an issue since all the low-end machines at our LAN seemed to only have the issue. Just an observation to hopefully help as I am still very anxious to play Rheinübung with a large group of people someday (I just wanna be the Ardo Scout plane reporting postions for the artillery calls :naughty:

i dont see how it could be system related, but it is an interesting find. it doesnt work on my PC and mines a low spec.

Mine is about the same as those two, and it doesnt work, although my map file is 76.1 kb instead of a few magabytes :( .

Mine too...

But Gauntlet gave me his map, which worked for him, and it too was that small...it still didn't work for me though.

I have no problems with crashing maps, only disconnecting from server ones. I don't think that is hardware related.

Interesting, I wonder why the devs never spotted this in the beta testing phase.

If you mean the pacific crashes matyast, they weren't spotted because they simply never happened.

A fixed version of Rheinubung was made in the end, it was used for filming the promo movie, not sure why it wasn't included in final .65 though.
