Tzan, yeah I think something similar was going on here. I discovered an error in the actual grid size calculation, which caused the map to become too big in certain resolutions. On my own laptop, the application would just trudge along, but in native Windows, crash. Now that I've fixed that (and cleaned up a few other bugs), things should hopefully go more smoothly. I'll sit on the fixes for a few days, to make sure everything is sound before I rush a new release.

As always,

LAND OF STRANGERS #13
One Crawled out of the Foxhole

This is mostly a bugfix release to get a working Windows version again. I think I have covered all received bug reports, and a few more. I updated the Windows binary and sources, at the blog and at itch.io. I'll announce the release and build the Linux versions within a day or two, I guess ;) Here's hoping this build is working as expected under Windows.

Download binary: direct link

As always,
