Whenever I try to optimize natural selection 2 the game just freezes for a few minutes and then exits to the desktop.

Optimization simply complies the shaders so you don't have to do it on the map loading screen. What happens if you skip optimization?

Does optimization actually do any real optimization, or does it just detect your system hardware and select what it thinks would be the best video settings?

it baically simulates connecting ot a server, this cuases comilation of your shaders to occur. however there is not any real reason you need to do it. the only down side to not doing it is that your fist connection to a server will be pretty slow.

The game works; it just crashes when I try to optimize it or play the tutorial.

that is super wierd. However , im sticking with if aint broke dont fix it. Dont worry too mucha bout the tutorial and after you get in the game there should be no reason to run the optimization.

Just in case though, Is there anythgin in your log? its in %appdata%/Natural Selection 2/log.txt

I'm betting you are running on linux.

i crashed @ Optimization about hmm 30-40 times?... at some point i saw, that the "caching Shaders" % was still showing sometimes some progress and the % keeps rising up to 100% and was finally done! ^_^ (if thats your case)

I think that you may be right.
