Civ5: BNW runtime error crash on load/save
Anybody else's Civ 5 getting the runtime error crash to desktop when loading or saving? My game seems to be working perfectly fine as long as I don't try to save a game or load one. As soon as I click to load a game it crashes.

I never had this error happen before I downloaded the expansion. I only have one version of M Visual C++, my OS is up to date, my drivers are up to date, and I've ran it in multiple compatibility modes. I'm running a clean install of Windows 7.. only thing I have downloaded on it (other than the necessary drivers) is steam/civ5. I've also been having this issue with Windows 8.

For anybody having this issue here is the fix: http://forums.2kgames.com/showthread.php?98235-C-Runtime-error-on-load-save-game&p=1610508#post1610508

It took me several days to find this fix... If you save anything to the steam cloud and then don't play the game for an extended period of time you are likely to have to employ this fix. I feel like a single corrupted save file on the cloud shouldn't shouldn't shut down the ability to save and load... this vulnerability has existed for at least a year!

I've been having this problem for a few weeks and finally figured out the problem on why that fix wasn't working for me: Peerblock! So make sure you have any firewalls or Peerblock disabled or allow any Valve IP addresses to go through!
