    The map is Eras Zombie Invasion:Eras Zombie Invasion 0.82 - The Hive Workshop - A Warcraft III Modding Site

    Suddenly it crashes people at random times ( but mostly near the start )

    The version hosted on this site is not the one with the crash.

    What I did to "achieve" this crash was: add two more buildings with upgrades and make them act as "menus" of the technology centre, because there wasn't enough space for all the upgrades in one building. I did the same for the barracks and I put down more walls, and gave a new ability to one of the zombie hero (but i've tested it without that and it still bugs)

    I seriously haven't got a clue as to why this would crash the game.

    Your damn game is everywhere in battle.net, and zombies always win... Or humans make an impenetrable fort... Which is like, hopeless?

    Anyways, I also had a map that crashed because I used a USER INTERFACE that was transparent and additionally, a tile... And if you combine them together, you get a FATAL ERROR...

    Tell me more about the game... So your saying that no ERROR pops out?

    Then it might be an endless loop, like say...

    Another one that I encountered is

    WILL CAUSE A LOOP THAT WILL INSTANTLY CRASH WARCRAFT...

    What other additions did you put? Any new triggers?

    EDIT:

    Also, I think it doesn't emit an error window but having some bad icons can crash it...

    I have narrowed it down: it is the structures causing the crash, I have no fucking clue why Warcraft would do this.

    I just don't see why there is this problem.. there's no logical reason behind it.

    Really?

    Custom model?

    Model that shouldn't be used?

    Icons?

    Triggers on those structures?

    Anything edited (Purpled) in the settings of the structure?

    I think you can start over, but if the same thing happens again, narrow it down...

    Put abilities, upgrades, or any of those before you edit anything else... :p


    Unless you've fixed it... Narrow it down...

    I did also change the placement of the icons, their x and y.

    Make the buildings from scratch. Change one thing. See if it works. Change another. See if it works.

    Repeat until you find the cause.
