I just came back to the game recently for one last run and it doesn't work. Most of the time it crashes when you save or won't even load a game. I'm gonna reinstall but i think if things don't improve then i am definately finished which is a shame because at 822 hours it's the most ive ever played a game through steam.
Ok edited to add, it's still just as bad. Takes 2 mins to load and then it got stuck on autosave and this is only at turn 50 or so. Thanks for all your efforts and while i think the game got better, the performance kept getting worse and now the hassle just takes all the fun out of it. I'm not biiter, i really enjoyed the game but it's time to end this one.
