Civ 5 freezes/crashes when a diplomacy screen with someone comes up.
Hello 2k forums! So I just started playing Civilization 5 again after some time because I got the expansion, Gods and Kings. Before I rarely ever had any problems; Maybe an occasional crash after hours of playing, but nothing out of the ordinary. I can't remember for sure, but I'd estimate that it's been months since I've played last, so there has probably been quite a few updates along with the expansion since then. Anyways, while I was playing, my game started randomly freezing in between my turns. I would actually call it crashing, since it didn't return from the frozen state, and after I alt-tabbed out or pulled up the task manager, it gave me the "Civ 5 has stopped working" message. At first it appeared to be crashing randomly in between turns, but after further investigation it seems that it crashes every other time I try to initiate diplomacy with any other civilization. Both the new and old civs will do this at random. It wouldn't be as much of a problem if it wasn't so frequent and unpredictable. I have a steam copy of civ 5, no mods or workshop items are installed, and trying to fix problems with Supreme Commander has left me with clean installs of direct X and C++ libraries as well as updated driver software. Any idea what could be the problem? Thanks, and sorry for the wall of text.

Try turning your diplo scene detail setting all the way down.
That seems to have worked, although my game runs slower now. Thanks!
