It randomly crashes after installing a brave new world
Anyone got any advice? The game just crashes after 5-20 minutes of gameplay. The only message is that Civilisation 5 has stopped working. Ive checked the integrity of the game cache three times and uninstalled all steam workshop mods, and no luck. I've also updated my video card drivers. My machine has an AMD radeon hd 6780 and an ATI phenom 2. Any help would really be appreciated, Thanks

Running 64 bit Windows 8

I run 64-bit Win8 as well and I have the same problem, but I don't own BNW. I think this may have something to do with Win8 then.

Maybe, but if it was something to do with windows 8 i think the problem would be more widespread.

I checked the official Civ5 forums, people have the same problem there, mixed OS as well.
I made a post about it in on of the threads and I would recommend you guys to do the same so we can bring this problem to light and hopefully the developers will be able to fix it.

Same here except my playtime is anything from 5 minutes to 3 hours. One time I noticed a Render error. It was one of the popups that hides behind the game window, You can only see it by alt-tabbing. Other times is a CTD.

I play the game on DX11 mode. Win7, nVidia GTX 580 latest drivers.

Yeah I just managed to get around 2 hours, as far as i can tell it crashes when a move finishes

So your saying that the game is just as unstable with BNW as without.

When i didn't have BNW it never crashed

Civ 5 started crashing for me after I installed BnW, didn't happen after Gods and Kings. The crash happens EVERY TIME I try to create a game, so I'm on loading screen with my civ and halfway through sound repeats and then I'm back at desktop. I have Win XP SP3, nVidia Gt 440
with latest drivers

Same problem here, getting a bit pissed off about it too...

I have the same crashing mid game problem w/ no error messaging. Win 7 64 bit. If anyone finds a fix, please post it.

I've just downloaded the DLC and installed it and instead of it loading it says it's running BnW but then opens up as Gods & Kings instead...
