0003135: Can't load XL maps
Whenever I try to load any of the regular XL maps shipped with the game, VCMI crashes. I don't get booted back to desktop, I just click "begin" and nothing happens and I get a "VCMI has crashed" notification in the background, but I can press back and return to the main menu without needing to restart VCMI.
Try to begin any XL map in VCMI
Since I can't find any other complaints about this but can see many complaints about less serious issues, I am wondering if the problem is on my end but I can't imagine what that problem could be. I am also told by the crash notification that a file with information about the crash has been created so please tell me how to access that if it will help but hopefully the solution is simple, thank you!

Forgot to say that this issue was present for me when I first installed VCMI around the end of last year and still persists after installing the most recent build, that's all, thanks again.

Sorry I'm pretty new, managed to upload the logs but they probably have all kinds of crashes in there, most recent ones should be from the issue I've described though.

A nice opportunity to check my skills against crash dumps. Will take a quick look.

Only XL map fails? Smaller ones work?
2020-07-15 14:10   
How about VCMI_server.exe.crashinfo.dmp? Do you have it also?
Logs can be found in Documents/My Games/vcmi/VCMI_Client_log.txt and VCMI_Server_log.txt

Thanks for the quick reply and sorry about the delay on my end, files are up and yes all maps up to large load fine only XL and above having this issue.
2020-07-23 09:32   
ok I just tried to do some testing to make sure I could still recreate the issue, problem was still present but I was actually able to load 2 XL maps, race for ardinnity and another one that I can't remember, I made a save on the 2nd map but for me VCMI gets really tempermental after trying to load lots of maps and I cant open my saves or scenarios now even after a reboot, I might try a fresh install soon and see if I can't keep trying to test the issue but I'm going to leave it for now because I'm getting a little tempermental myself. Thanks again for looking into this with me.

Strange issue. Hope it is not memory related. VCMI does not consume much memory.
Also be aware that too many mods can cause crashes.

Btw if you have save file which crashes, attach it also. It might help.

I believe that the reason for this is the 32 bit assembly. Faced it with such problems.
