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.

        Welcome everybody to Saelig! Saelig is a new strategy role-playing game where you take control of a human living in England in the Dark Ages. You can live as you please and I thought it would be fun to play this game and share it with you. In this first episode, we check out our town and see what kind of things we can get up to as this is the tutorial. I hope you enjoyed this episode of Saelig, thanks for watching and liking!

        SÆLIG is a strategy, role-playing, simulation, and trading game about the things that matter; life, death, money, and family. You will be in charge of managing the life and affairs of a young Anglo-Saxon in the kingdom of Wessex, a kingdom at constant war with Vikings. It is in this world that you must find a way thrive and make a name for yourself, and your family. 

        At its very core, SÆLIG is a trading and management game centered around the accumulation of wealth and the survival of your family. It also incorporates many role-playing and simulation features, including relationships, buffs, skills, health, missions, needs, character-based interactions, and direct character control.
