Default Stange, huge bug

I didn't know where to post that so here it is...
I'm in a PWB game and we just switched to 1.35 and BM 1.06 and now, everytime I try to access any constructyion queue, the whole computer crash in a lovely blue screen... Happened to anyone else?
I might do some tests but my computer seems to not like that much hard resets like these... (I reinstalled both SEV and BM, deleting the remaining folders before doing so, so it was completely fresh)

I can't quite recall anything like that. Posting in the Balance Mod thread might get you a bit more attention.

Blue screen usually means a Driver issue :-/ Generally, software cannot cause Bluescreens.

Default Re: Stange, huge bug

first time 1.33 to 1.35
Then I reinstalled from 0 to 1.35
For BM I switched from 1.05 to 1.06
Then reinstalled from nothing to 1.06

And what kind of problem would cause a blue screen when opening a menu?
I'm thinking some kind of illegal calculation or a really big problem with a bitmap. I'm going to do some more tests, like without any mod, and then reinstall again...

It sounds like something hokey between DirectX and the video card driver.

I agree it sounds like a video card driver issue. Try changing video memory to "SAFE" in the setup menu and see if that helps.
