Board » Technical Support » Sailrace Crashing

Hi I hope someone can help me,

Since the start of the Volvo race, sailrace keep on crashing. There is no pattern to it, it will sometimes crash when scrolling around the map, other times the game will just hang when the game is doing nothing. The hang starts with the cursor turning into a cross and all buttons failing to respond, next all the boxes empty and turn white and then the program says that it is not responding and must close. I have had the occasional crash in other races but this is happening all the time.

I have the same problem on two machines (both using Windows XP SP3)I am using Beta 7.
Is this happening other people?

Many thanks

May the Foss be with you...
Got same problems with XP and Vista64.
I have the same problem. Almost every time I move around the map the program stop responding.
Well its working for me fine until i move map. Im just click to center my boat from toolbar and then zooming in and out. Dont scroll your map on your mouse.
Same Problem since this race. Reinstall the client still the same problem.
Looking forward to the flash client.
Same here, scroll around the map and the software crashes.

Both on XP and Vista, with high spec machines.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
