Whyyyyy does every build of this crash while loading? This one doesn't even give an error message, just crashes to desktop while loading the mod.

This is an ongoing and confusing issue, as it doesn't always crash and doesn't crash for everyone. Also when it does crash the reason seems to be different.

One person has suggested that using a 32-bit compatability setting works.

Or you can download the latest version from sourceforge, to see if any of the latest changes resolve the issue.

We will be putting out another patch soon, but I am ill at the moment.

you need the .dll file and download snapshot from the code section.
