If it's a public recipe, it would be helpful to specify which one, and include any recipe output. (Just rename scriptlog.*.xml to scriptlog.*.txt, and you may also want to delete the first 11 lines and last two lines to remove the XML tags and perhaps evade the finicky Foldit spam filters.)

It's also good to know whether you're working solo or evolver. If evolver, please let us know whether the solution is already evolved. I just discovered that this 2.5 year old feedback -- http://fold.it/portal/node/997237 -- is still a client crasher. It occurs when you're working on an unevolved solution, and you do certain creditbest functions like GetScore, GetEnergyScore, and AreConditionsMet. There are probably a few more cases like this one floating out there, capable to turning reliable recipes into unpalatable mush.

Excellent help Loci.
It was the public recipe Banded Worm Pairs, and the scriptlog shows it didn't get too far

Additionally, this was on an evo. (but it happens just as frequently on solo puzzles)

I still can not load many of my own Auto Saves on 1299

Both 1299s crashed apparently simultaneously (evo and solo) on Banded Worm Pairs (which usually works fine).
all logs attached

Add to that list 1300 evo same recipe.

It's strange, because the solo 1300 is running the same recipe at the same settings... why'd it take out both 1299s and the 1300 within ...seconds... of one another?

1299S crash on DremixW
It crashed on thread 4 if that's any help

With several more crashes tonight on solo and evo, I thought it fair to comment that I question why I continue to play foldit. Despite a couple of updates, no real fixes since August for too many issues and no recommendations from other than fellow players for what might help. Yet new tools are coming out, but with those like myself still struggling with constant crashes and issues on the existing client(s)....Will I continue to play? Probably. Is it my idea of "fun" for the benefit of science? Hmm. That bears serious thought. I've been giving my feedback, attaching the logs, trying everything... and seeing nothing that is broken really change from the day I started playing (around March of last year).

This is a plea to Foldit to make this serious game better by fixing the obvious and left-broken-too-long broken parts ... so that existing diehard players have fewer crashes, more new players can come on board and play without issues, and new players stick around. I hope sincerely that is in the works... and wish seriously that the issues that plague my platform's client along with others that seem to be outstanding are in the works to be fixed once and for all. Apologies if a bug report thread isn't the place to write this... that written, I think the feedback I've been leaving support every word I write here.

Thanks for listening.

Replaced recipes that were crashing the most... no appreciable change in frequency of crash. Latest scriptlog attached. Crashed with a group recipe this time (that isn't crashing for the Solo.)

I give up. I can't play 1299 without crashing. Surprised I got as far with it as I did.

Update:
I haven't had a crash since I posted last night/this morning. Don't know what changed, but I did create new tracks for the problem puzzles. Did foldit hotfix something for the mac client yesterday? Now, I haven't tried any "risky" recipes, but it appears at least for now to have stabilized. Guess that's what happens when one gives up. :-)
