Crash after about 30 turns
Every time I get a game to about 30 turns it automatically crashes with no error messages or anything. I've tried numerous fixes like uninstalling and reinstalling C++ and so on. Anyone got any idea of what I can do? The game runs perfectly for the first 30 turns, I just don't understand why it's suddenly crashing.

The C++ thing happens on startup so it isn't that. Have you tried doing verification on the game files? It could be a heat issue, though I wouldn't expect this game to tax your system much at all.

Sorry, but I know it's not heat because it will always crash at the same point even if I've just loaded my game.

When I verify, the game says 1 file failed and reacquires it. But when I looked at downloads it says the file size is 0 bytes... I've tried reinstalling it too, no dice.

Normally I would say it's a memory issue but if it always crash at the same time the odds are you have a corrupted install. Since you have reinstalled Endless Space without success my next bet would be a antivirus program. It's a longshot but try disabling your antivirus program when you get to where it use to crash.
Are you always playing on the same save?

Maybe you could create a thread on the official forums and explain what you wear exactly doing when the crash happened. Also, providing us with the save as well at the output log (Steam > Steamapps > Common > Endless Space > Endless Space Data) would be useful. :)

In regards to the save & output logs, a few users have uploaded them to the ES forums but after that there is never any reaction from devs again.. :(

I know for a fact the problem was already there when I started playing it 2/3 months ago.. I stopped playing because the crashes were getting so annoying, figured they'd be patched in a few weeks but the problem is still there. This time Ive been doing some googling and apparently there is a big number of people with the same problem.. As I mentioned before, the devs are aware but the only thing they did so far was ask for save and log files.. After that, silence.. I can understand you cant solve problems like these at the beck and call of the community but it's been out there for months now and we all paid good money for a game that is in some cases just broken.. I really love this game but please fix it! Knowing the game could crash at any time just ruins the experience for me..

Steam attempts to install everytime: Inside the game folder located in Steam (Steam/Steamapps/Common/Endlessspace), you need to delete the .vdf files.

I can't say, that will be stop crashing, but decreases :|

I applied the reg patch on the ES forum yesterday and changed Vsynch to 0. This morning I managed to play for 2 hours without crashing!! Good luck to you as well!

And again, today, after a session of about 1 hour my game crashed.. This time, there was a mouseover popup that partly showed while the game stopped working.. I'll upload my save and log to the forums and I hope we will get a fix soon..

Opened the game up yesterday and played 70 turns with no crash, one of these fixes or the latest patch must have fixed it :D Thanks!

Good to hear! I am currently playing the game on a lower resolution.. Managed to play for an hour today without the game freezing..
