Hi Luten, i'm currently using this new version (v3.0 Beta Build 1218).

I finally solved the crash in "Marked Men".
Solution is: Display Setup> Advanced> Put everything to low/off/disabled. That's how I ended this mission without crash.

Thanks Luten for ignoring my problem since Sep 30 2013, it really shows the commitment that you and your team have to solve community problems.

Best Regards!

Thank you for being ignorant and not even trying to realise this bug was reported countless times and therefore known. Besides, that file can't even be downloaded.

BTW. It is fixed in the last update, so you having it probably means you have NOT updated the game completely.

Best Regards!

The file can't be downloaded because I deleted it 1 hour ago. Btw the crash has been already solved changing the video settings, So keep your unnecessary opinion to yourself.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm the main mod's programmer so I usually know what I fix. Although I could still take a look at the crashdump, PERHAPS it's something we don't know yet.

And please don't deny our commitment towards this project, because we're spending ENOUGH time on this for sure :)

In my opinion someone that take 1 week to answer a simple comment it's not enough commitment. But i can understand that, real life exists too. Alright Cookie, my apologies.

Okay, this indeed does not look like the crashes we've had previously (although the crashing place is the same). I'll check it later, but please doublecheck your game is FULLY up to date (some files could have failed to install).

Yeah in case you guys didn't know, CookiePLMonster is Silent from the team.

As for the week to answer a comment thing, this mod has just came out of downtime, which we actually mentioned in the comments before, so yeah, there's bound to be a few unanswered questions from people dropping by during that period.

However, I find it an insult that you question our commitment when we have been working on this mod for over TWO years, we only brought it to ModDB at the start of this year, and we still want to work on it and get something out there for you guys, again, as we have said time and time again, we're doing this for free, because we enjoy it, there's only a few of us, and yes, real life does still happen so we drop in and out of the project depending on how school and work is planned out.

So yeah, if not answering a comment quick enough is enough to make you question our commitment, then you're seriously looking at the wrong things.
