Every time I try to load a game I get a recurring Error it is as follows:
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Iron Clad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\Mini Dump\Sins of a Solar Empire.exe[vb3.4][07.20][18.39]

then the game freezes and i have to start over anything that i can do to fix it?

Please send the minidump and save game (it will zip up really small) to support@ironcladgames.com and we'll take a look at it for you

yeah me and my friend got that a lot too! we were playing lan yesterday and we could NEVER finish a round because of that problem. Either one of us would get that error in the middle of the game and if we tried to load, well it wouldn't work.. It's kind of frustrating that out of maybe 7 games, we haven't been able to finish a single one, which sucks because we really enjoy the game.

I found a fix that works on XP and probably works on vista too. I detailed the fix and the reasons why i came up with it in my two posts on the following forum thread.

http://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/?aid=301153&p=1#1620320

it worked for me AND my friend who are running completely different computers. So, im pretty confident that this will solve the problem for anyone. It's a bit hands on on the windows configuration department but its 120% safe(yes 120%).

For those who dont understand the instructions well. If enough people have a hard time with figuring how to do it i'll try making a video instruction on how to do it.

Quoting Blair Fraser,
Please send the minidump and save game (it will zip up really small) to support@ironcladgames.com and we'll take a look at it for you

Out of curiosity, what do you do with the minidump?

is it like that when an app goes wrong it asks you if you want to error report to Microsoft?

OK, I am experiencing the minidup crash as well, but not at launch; it is occuring just after I commence playing a particular scenario. The game has been playing perfectly fine for about the past 4-5 days since re-installing it on my PC, then all of a sudden, MiniDump crashes as described above have started occuring, even though I have graphics & visual effects options turned down to their minimums?

Trinity/Diplomacy just got updated. This can mess up mods causing them to crash.

Actually it is, as the mods may not be updated for diplomacy/trinity v1.21.
