As an XP sp3 OS user. I lived with the hccutils.dll crash when you close Foldit, because it was merely an inconvenience. 4 updates ago. The game_library.dll crash is new, and exciting, because it strikes out of the blue. As things stand, and I'm sure I'm only crystallising current grumbles from the last few updates, I cant run scripts, (they fall over now), I cant run recipes (they sometimes fall over) I cant run the scripts and recipes by hand (they mysteriously hang_app at different junctures, never reproducibly) I rejoice with unconfined pleasure when my feeble attempts at improving a solution results in a score change upwards, because I beat the scoreboard. Before it crashed. I now save 20-30 rebuild positions, when I rebuild, because I've learnt the hard way that stepping back through those 20-30 positions and processing each one, means you'll get through perhaps 4, before you crash. And clicking the 'edit' icon on a script or recipe is my new version of Russian Roulette... And global_wiggle_all can occasionally just frighten my OS into freeze panic. And, and, and, and.........
TL;DR - as a folder, It's russian roulette b4 I crash. Never used to be that way. It makes me swear more often than I used to. Grrrrrrrrrr
