System: win 2000 (don't know version)
Duron 950, 256 meg RAM, nVidia Vanta2 graphics card.

Version of game: one downloaded from this site.

About 1/10th of the time the first soldier steps off the ramp of a landing craft the game crashes me back to the desktop. Only the first soldier of the game. If I restore a game during a combat mission, it can happen the first time a soldier goes up the ramp, up or down stairs, etc. Never a problem with flying suits or hover tanks, just on foot. Oh, and can trigger off the grounded tanks too.

I also crash to desktop about once every 30 times I select end turn and very rarely at random events in the geoscape (seems timed to windows poping up). Anyone have any ideas? Right now I just save a lot. But it's still annoying.

Let me know if you fix this. I'm having the same problem!

I am also having this exact same problem and investigating the cause.
Maybe we can add some debugging info to the xcom fix/loader exe file.

Maybe I should add my system specs:

Windows 2000 w/ Service Pack 3.
Intel Pentium 3 733 MHz. (Coppermine chip)
448 MB of SDRAM (1-64, 1-128, 1-256)
nVidia GeForce 2 Ti. (Leadtek)
Creative Sound Blaster Live Value.

Your problem is extremely rare. It happens to all of us, but not nearly at the same frequency as it does for you. Have you tried reinstalling/redownloading the game?

I just started to crash now. For some reason it just started around the time when I got Turbo. Anyway it crashes when I click once in a while. Like he said, it rarely happens on geoscape, but frequently during battle. <_<
