I've been getting crashes with EVO 1.0.2, usually after I leave a spaceport bar.
The screen freezes and occasionally I'll have to restart. Got a bus error once.
This is on a 64MB 350 imac, VM on, with 45 MB allotted to the game. I've had
the game a couple weeks and it has happened about 4-5 times. Also happened
with the previous version (which I bought about a week before 1.0.2 came out).
This is probably because your are using Virtual Memory. Am I right in thinking that your iMac has Mac Os ? If it does, it will be using about 35 megs of RAM, causing EV to dip into Virtual memory.
The solution: Lower the memory allotment of EVO. You only need 20 megs at the very most, and 15 megs is propably a more sensible ammount. If the game is too lsow for you, hit the (Caps Lock) key during the game, or increase the game speed in the preferences.
Oh, I'm sorry. Did that break your concentration?
I didn't mean to do that.
I believe you were saying something about "best intentions."

Too slow? iMac 350... hmmm... EVO cant be too slow on that, I think (never been on my 233, wich by the way can run Terminus on lowest graphical settings. Look like **** though)

Too slow on a 350? I think not. Like AdmBlastaway here, I have a 233, and the only time it slows down even the tiniest bit is when 2-3 UE carriers, and accompanying fighters are blasting away at a bunch of Voinans. And then it only slows down if I venture close enough to see the entire fight. I assume it is from all the blaze cannon shots, which are numerous.
the Necromicon: I would assume he does have Mac OS, since EVO won't run on anything else. However, why would using virtual memory cause EVO to crash? I ran EVO back when my G3 had 32MB of RAM, and never had a problem there, and I practically had to use VM then.
