Will R4 be for the new diplomacy 1.2?

No, not initially as I don't wanted to change/do to many things at once.
I'll have a version for Diplomacy 1.2 patch in a few weeks.

"Not sure which 'crashes' you are referring to? Can you clarify?"

Every 10 minutes or so the game crashes for no visible reason. I remember it had something to do with having too much ram. Just wondering if there was a workable fix to that.

"Every 10 minutes or so the game crashes for no visible reason."
This is the 2GB limit of Sins. Every large mod contends with this problem. I have included a workaround (see zip that comes with the mod) for 64bit OS's and if you have 4GB or more RAM.

In general, try the default graphic setting for Sins ... this is a 'safe' mode. You can monitor the RAM usage of Sins in the "Windows Task Manager" (ALT+CTRL+DEL).

"Just wondering if there was a workable fix to that."
No, but the problem has been minimized by integrating the "Sins Optimization Project" (TSOP). Hundred's of man hours (by the Sins modding community) have been invested in this project to reduce the RAM footprint of Sins and improved lagging issues in large and long games. Also I have sent many months optimizing the new features of Maelstrom using the same techniques. So rest assured that everything that can be done has been done.

If you are having problems even when using the "default graphic setting" of Sins then I suggest checking your video card driver. Also have you got more than 2GB of RAM? Check to see that there are not any RAM intensive processes being used in the OS background (via Windows Task Manager).

Are you saying you still have game freezes after using the "default graphic setting" of Sins?

patch 1.2 deals with it I already tested.

Yes, patch 1.2 is supposed to improve texture use and hence reduce RAM footprint.

PS: I believe some have gotten Maelstrom Original to work with the Maelstrom Diplomacy (1.2)
