When I open the structure limits screen, it works fine. No crash. And I know several others have used that functionality without a crash when testing.

So we really need more details about:
- The exact steps you take to reproduce
- Your OS
- The build of Warzone you are using
- A crash log

So we can reproduce it and fix it.

(Super awesome bonus would be if you can record a video of the steps it takes to cause the crash on your system.)

Never crashed for me either. I lobbed that ticket (#4558) along with 14 others that are pretty much the same old generic stack traces or were from older releases (#4414).

I have discovered at least two instances of Warzone code before it becomes the same generic stack trace of jumping around in the driver:
Code: Select all
0073F026  C:\Program Files (x86)\Warzone 2100-3.2.3\warzone2100.exe:0073F026  SDL_LogCritical
006BEFB4  C:\Program Files (x86)\Warzone 2100-3.2.3\warzone2100.exe:006BEFB4  SDL_LogCritical
006483D0  C:\Program Files (x86)\Warzone 2100-3.2.3\warzone2100.exe:006483D0  wzScreenFlip  /home/wz2100/build/warzone2100-3.2.3/lib/sdl/main_sdl.cpp:445
00622442  C:\Program Files (x86)\Warzone 2100-3.2.3\warzone2100.exe:00622442  pie_ScreenFlip  /home/wz2100/build/warzone2100-3.2.3/lib/ivis_opengl/piemode.cpp:96
I've mentioned this before a few times before so I don't know if this is simply insignificant or nobody noticed.

SDL_GL_SwapWindow (which wzScreenFlip calls) is basically a super-simple code-path that just triggers an OpenGL backbuffer / framebuffer swap... which immediately leads to the graphics driver. So the problem still looks to be in the NVIDIA drivers.

I just want to add that this was working so many years (from 2.x version to 3.1 I think, even on older drivers)
I cleaned and installed/tested with a few older ones.. this is not a fault in drivers, only this game have problems , also last time when you guys wrote the same (nvidia driver fault - before even menu was shown) it was not true and game is fixed now, only that menu remaining :)
I running: warzone2100-master-20180524-201429-0005774.exe 24-May-2018 18:39
I have old graphic card (nvidia gt220) , but this is not an issue.. game is old and should run the same as old 2.3 version

You will get a zip-file that includes the latest master version for windows.
