Game crash is related to the UI (esp. save game menu)
My game will often crash when trying to save a game (quicksave is fine).
It's not always when *actually* saving the game (though is sometimes) but purely brining up the save game menu whilst playing will cause a hang about 25% of the time, either before, after or during the save.
This can also happen when viewing City State messages (by clicking on the 'pop-up' icon or City), but seems much less prevalent.
Hope this is fixed soon. Really loving the game aside from these crashes.
Win 7 x64
4GB Dominator RAM
Playing on marathon speed.
(sorry if this has already been posted I did look, but not got a lot of time right now).
No worries. Have you ensured that the steam.exe file and the exe for the game are running as administrator?

Thanks a lot for the help, will let you know how it goes.
If you set steam to run as admin, it gives you a message warning you about doing that. Are you sure that's a good suggestion to try?
Is it a good idea to do this or not? Based on 413x3's comment I didn't set it.
This bug (also crashing when viewing Civilopedia now...) is beginning to drive me nuts!
EDIT: If possible I'd really appreciate it if someone at 2K/Firaxis could please comment as to whether this is a known issue and there is a fix in the works.
