I need to either reproduce the error myself, consistently, so that I can track down the source of the error, or sometimes a log message or crash dump file can help.
Here are some things that might help me track it down:
* Before starting the game, launch the Windows Task Manager and keep it running.
*When the game next crashes, do not answer or click the Windows message that the game stopped working, but instead, go to the Task Manager, find Maelstrom.exe, right-click and select "Create dump file". It will create a file and present a message where the file is located; find that file and send it to me.
*Also send me the system.log, compile.log and error.log (if it exists).
*Also send me a recent save game file from this same session.
*If the game just stops, with no Windows Error Message, and you can't create a dump file, launch the Windows Event Viewer and copy/paste the error details from there. It is not as helpful as a dump file, but might give a clue.

Thanks, and I will see if I can figure it out from the provided files.
