    If I started a game with beta build 36 and download 37, do I have to start a new game then? (By the way - the game is muvh more stable after build 36 came out)

    Still crashing on the first turn with beta 37. Strange thing is that it opens in windowed format and stays in windowed format even when I checked full screen and exited for a restart. On beta 36, the first time I ran it, I was able to play a game in windowed format, but not in full screen. This time, in 37, it wouldn't go to full screen and wouldn't play. Anyway, here are the lines after the CTD:

    "Device lost" seems strange. Are you sure you weren't minimizing game's window after running it? DirectX device lost is quite rare event nowadays, as far as I know on Windows Vista/7 it's difficult to experience it without using Ctrl+Alt+Del

    The game was in windowed format when I opened the fresh build. It crashed, so I changed it to full screen next time around--it still crashed. On a previous build I was able to play a game in windowed format (it wouldn't allow me to do full screen until I rebooted the computer and then the familar CTD at hitting the first turn button). Now, with beta 37, it's back to crashing on the first turn, but what's more, though it first opened in windowed format, when I switched to full scrren, it won't allow me to switch back to windowed format. I click on the box, but it stays full screen. When I reboot, it's still full screen. I've got Vista Home Edition with all the usual updates.

    Actually I just got into the game again. It's in windowed format. Still CTD at the hit of the turn button. Sorry, I had it backwards--with build 37, it won't go to full screen. I keep clicking on the box to make it full screen, but it remains in windowed format even if I quit the game and start up again.

    To set the game in full screen you must go to preferences, also to not use the maximize button.

    Are you running the game as administrator?

    Please try that and let me know

    I got some new problems with beta build 37, that I did not have with 36. When I try to leave the game after playing a while, it crashes back to windows. It also happens when I try to open a saved game, then it crashes back to windows.
