Hello everyone, new user to Contra here. I've been playing ZH for quite some time in skirmish mode and enjoying that. I've stumbled upon Contra and absolutely love what you've done to the game! However, Thus far out of maybe 5 games I've only been able to finish a skirmish one time. All other time the game will crash to desktop after I've been at it for 30+ minutes and amassed a decent size army. It did then when I played with my son on the LAN and by myself agains a single AI. I always play the same map for what it's worth since it has a lot of room (Fortress Avalanche.) I've tried several different army's and the computer is always on random for what it's worth. I found the crash log and this is what it says, maybe someone can make sense of this:
p.s. I've done all of the available patches to date and can play other games such as BF3 for hours without problems at high resolution so I believe the PC is stable. Regular Zero Hour doesn't have this problem.
