I have been playing SMAC since it came out, 20 years. I finally got round to playing on the hardest level and, late game (just about GravShip), it looks like I have a chance to win.
However, the game is now crashing, and I would suspect a resource problem.
Except, I have been playing exclusively on huge map of planet since the start, when my PC probably had only a few MB of RAM. My current laptop has 32 gB, which ought to be enough.
The only time i previously saw this for 5 years of so back when I made a custom sized map which was larger than the huge map, so I now stick to huge & have never once had a problem with the huge map until now.
I booted into safe ore, but
terranx.exe won't run. I have tried a fresh boot, then kill a few processes, but with 32gB of RAM for a 1999 game, there ought not to be a resource problem - unless it is a 32 bit thing.
Any ideas how I can finish this game?
