View Full Version : Simtower

Hey dudes wondering if someone could shed a little light on an issue i've got with simtower.

It goes like this.... Playing as usual untill i get to 2/3 star level. then sometimes it just freezes (could just be good old windows) but mostly when saving i get an error message saying either 1) disk is full or locked. or 2) too many simtower files are open close some before saving.

1 is unlikely cos i have 32Gb free out of a total HD space of 37Gb and no lockup issues normally.
2 is frustrating because i can't even tell if there are other simtower files open. when this happens Taskmanager shows only one copy of the game running and insde the game i can only see one tower and no other windows.

System specs are 800Mhz P2, 256Mb Ram, Soundblaster Card, Nvida TnT2 Graphics Card, 37Gb HDD again 32 Gb is Free

one guy on the game forum suggested not enough HDD space or the fans inside might be broken, but Space isn't an issue for virtual memory and all fans are operating normally.

So hope someone can help

Cheers dudes

running out of filehandles is possible.
if you are using a nt based system (win2k/xp) it might want to save to write only direcotory.
