An observation on session hanging.

Today, for the first time ever, I experienced the infamous "the date stopped advancing" hang. It isn't just the date, the whole thing just hangs up. You are, fortunately, able to do a save and close to get back to your desktop where a restart solves the problem.

The city I am working on has a very nearly full tile (a small one) and was fine until I started developing it beyond being a farming village. Once things started to get near the edge of the tile, I began experiencing several of these. I suspect the program goes into some kind of tight loop. perhaps in the pathfinder, because the game runs for a while then hangs again.

System configuration: here.

Software: Simcity 4 Deluxe 1,1,641 running on wine-1.5.15 under Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-17-generic x86_64)

  • ^ What machine are you playing on? What version of the game?

    If you are on Deluxe loaded from disks, we are looking at a generic problem, perhaps.
