    Hi all! I've been away from the forum for a while. I've been acting as the general contractor for major renovations on a house that I inherited and have been too tired to do much mapping. I was planning to finish a few maps for the atlas over the holidays but my laptop died three days before christmas. So here I am, trying to recover as much of my digital life as I can.

    I've reloaded all of the ProFantasy software. Everything seems to be working fine except for one map. It is the Vertshusen city map that Quenten did for the atlas. It opened fine on my old system but now crashes to desktop after trying to load. I've re-downloaded it, reran the current update, and restarted my pc. Still no luck.

    This leaves me with two questions...

    - Does it open for you?

    - I may have overwritten something when extracting the Vintyri files. I don't install them, I just copy the bitmaps and symbols over but am not sure if I accidentally extracted something I didn't mean to.
    So-If I do a repair install of CC3 do I have to reinstall all of the addons too or just rerun the update?

    Thanks for any input of thoughts you might have.

    Have you run the latest update ? There is a new one. Help should show version 3.89.

    There is a new feature in the latest update that is designed to crash CC3+ whenever you load a city map by Quenten.

    Well, it is a bug actually, which cause CC3+ to use way too much memory, and while most maps load fine with the issue only noticeable if you look at the memory use in task manager, large maps with lots of fills/symbols, like large city maps, end up consuming more memory than CC3+ can provide, so it crashes. I am guessing a fix will be out in the foreseeable future. I bumped into the same issue with Quenten's Torstan map a few days past.

    Hahaha! That made me laugh. Quenten deserves his very own CC3 bug. He's done so many great maps for the atlas that he's due for some kind of reward. LOL

    Thanks for the heads up Remy. I'll wait for the fix before going further. :)

    I keep getting dialogues that say 'this map was created with version 3.90. And I can confirm that the city maps I have done do not open with 3.89.
    However, I cannot find update 3.20 on the registration page - is it imminent?

    Which maps do you get that message on? Atlas maps? If so, I probably forgot to clear the file version, I was forced to use a test build because of the memory bug. I try to do the atlas maps on the current release to avoid this, but I needed to put links in on your city map.

    The next update is currently undergoing testing. I don't know when Ralf plans to release it, but it is important to test that the update doesn't introduce new bugs (and any bugs found during testing must be fixed and then teated).

    Then yes, it is my fault. I'll try to remember to remove the file version from them for the next update. The error message will go away once everyone is on 3.90 anyway though.
