Try verifying your files (two will always be reacquired).

Mine is doing the same today. Crashed 3x after loading and just before displaying the game-space/map.

Right-click on Civ in your library.
Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache

I'm getting the same issues. Every time I load, I get some runtime error and the game crashes. It seems to me that it is a STEAM CLOUD issue as I've installed a brand new SSD and a new OS. I started Civ 5 just fine, started a game, saved it, and upon load I got the same error. Tried loading a game on another computer and yet it still crashes.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Whenever I do the verify integrity of game cache it says two files are corrupt (i think that's wording) and it downloads the game ... and then I crash when loading a game. Same thing over and over. Even on brand new SSD w/brand new OS install. WTF?

it's strange.. all I had to do to fix it was restart steam..

lucky you. I've reinstalled my OS, installed on another computer, and it still crashes every.time.i.load.

I've been having the same issue.

Additionally, given I'm using mods if I go through the entire mod loading process then load a saved game it works otherwise it crashes. It is very troublesome to say the least.

Have you guys tried disabling the cloud sync bit? It doesn't make sense that you'd still have the same trouble on a different computer
letzgoterps Jan 16, 2013 @ 3:25pm 
I've disabled cloud sync and it still happens. Steam "support" responds once every 4-6 days and basically gives a new, different generic response every time. But I know it has to be with Steam itself, and here's why...

It happens on evey computer, it happens whether or not cloud is enabled/disabled. But I can save a game, just cannot load it. What makes me know it's Steam though is that the moment I click "Steam Cloud" in top right corner of screen during save, it immediately crashes as well.

No idea wtf the issue is tbh w/you. What's also odd is that every time I try to verify the integrity of the game, it finds 2 files and DLs and installs them, but then it still crashes. It's quite annoying to say the least.

The one benefit is I can play multiplayer games ... but my friends have to do the loading in those games as well.

I'm having the same problem. When I do the file integrity thing, it says that I have two corrupt files that will be replaced. After it reinstalls, I reboot the game and it still crashes. Any help would be appreciated.

Same problem.
letzgoterps Jan 16, 2013 @ 7:43pm 
Yep, same. Any chance the two of you all ever used the Steam Cloud feature? My assumption is that my save got corrupt in the Steam Cloud and screwed over my game. But I'm not sure since I have the integrity problem.

I'll keep you all posted if I find a solution. But since it's been going on a month now, I'm starting to lose hope ... and getting EXTREMELY frustrated.
