    The only time I noticed a crash-only-after-save bug was when I was working with custom lightning (set via triggers). Are you using lightning effects? I don't mean spells like chain lightning, I mean triggers that create a lightning effect.

    On second thought, I believe I had problems with a trigger that added event conditions to a trigger as well. If you did either of those things, see if you can disable them and avoid the bug.

    In those situations, I could save the bug, but as soon as I loaded it, it would crash. Is that what's happening to you?

    There is a trigger that can create a lightning effect. If you were using it, you would know it. So let's rule that one out.

    My question is this...when does the game crash? Does it crash when you save it? Does it crash when you load the game? Does it crash while you are playing but only after you've saved?

    I forgot to mention: visibility modifiers can also be a problem here.

    Do you ever use the action that says "Pan as necessary to <point>"? You can go to your object editor and look at "functions" tab. See if you use that action and change it.

    If it's crashing in multiple player but not single player, that sounds like it might be a de-synch. That can happen with some JASS code that I don't understand, or with that action I referenced above. It could also happen with leaks; and multi-player probably creates leaks much faster than single player.

    To know if you have leaks, quit the game sometime and see if the blank screen stays blank for 3-4 seconds or something. That is the game fixing the leaks at the end.
