Description

Issues occur in primarily in the editor when alt+tabbing to desktop. I've noticed that if I go straight to the editor and than alt+tab, I can alt+tab back with no issue. However, if I hit "Preview" mission, than suspend mission and go back to the editor, I can alt+tab out to desktop, but when I click to go back to editor, it than crashes with the "ERROR Device Freed"
Also, if I do not alt+tab and just stay in the editor and "Preview" a mission no more than 4 times, it also crashes with the same error.
It has crashed in game if I enter my map to quickly, aka double tapping the "M" key.

I run Win XP 32 bit
Intel Duo Core 2 E6850
3 Nvidia GeForce 9800+ GTS cards (Not in SLI)
3GB RAM
My monitor is a 32" Flatscreen TV with max resolution of 1024x768

I have tried running in Window mode as suggested elsewhere, but am unable to. Might be a limitation on my monitor, I am not really sure.

Is this an CAA1 ticket or CIT?

Window mode works like this:

-window

You can use launcher tools to take care of that:

CAA1 since the error only occurs in that mod.

Such as?
I'm the only one having the issue?

Updated by kju over 5 years ago

It seems so. Havent heard of anyone else with this prob so far.

Try -window mode.
Do not load caa1, if you work in the editor.

This is the best I can think of. :(

OK, I got window mode to work just fine, however, the issue remains. Obviously, not by alt+tabbing, but if I preview it more than four times, it crashes.

Preview what? Sahrani? Any mission?
