I remember that when I played the game two years ago, this issue also occured sometimes.
I've googled the problem, and found that it was fairly common. It is rather annoying, both because I want to continue the storyline, and because the crashes make me having to cold reboot my computer (it does not respond to ALT+TAB, CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, CTRL+ALT+DELETE), which makes is it a rather tiresome excercise finding the last working save game
Here's an excerpt of the error log
[error]Expression : !m_error_code
[error]Function : raii_guard::~raii_guard
[error]File : D:\prog_repository\sources\trunk\xrServerEntities\script_storage.cpp
[error]Line : 748
[error]Description : ...ripyat\gamedata\scripts\smart_terrain_control.script:65: attempt to index field 'actor' (a nil value)
- Is there an easy applicable fix (like: opening a save game, changing this-and-that value and there you go)
- Is there an easy way to avoid this in the future?
- What causes the error anyway?
Any other remark and/or feedback are of course also welcome.
Thanks in advance.
