WC3 crashes to desktop on quitting
Posted 20 September 2004 - 11:26 PM
Since I started playing Reign of Chaos a couple I've seen the application crash twice when I quit, usually after selecting "End mission" to stop a mission in progress. This doesn't happen every time, but I'm not sure what triggers it.
It never happened before, when I was playing an earlier version of the games (maybe 1.14?) on OS 10.3.2 or 10.3.3. Has anyone seen anything like this? Any suggestions how I can prevent the crashes?
Thanks in advance for any and all help!

I have come across something that may offer a clue as to why I'm seeing this problem. This morning I launched the WC3 Demo and deleted my profile in the title screen. (I figured I'd try playing the demo again fresh somewhere down the road.)
Just now, however, I opened up Reign of Chaos and tried to continue the human campaign...and the blinkin' game asked me whether I really wanted to skip the intro campaign, which "contains story elements."
It seems that when I asked the Demo program to delete my profile, it erased any progress I made in the Reign of Chaos campaign! Except that somehow Reign of Chaos still knew that I had unlocked the human campaign.
Has anyone else had a problem with WC3 and the WC3 demo both installed on their hard disk? I have both programs installed in their own folders within my Applications folder. They each have their own "Saves" folder; I don't see why one program should do anything to the profiles from the other. But on the other hand, the ATI Displays control panel seems to think that WC3 and the Demo are the same application...

Still doesn't explain why the demo should erase my profile from the wrong folder, though. Has anyone else had problems with both WC3 and the demo installed?
