Oddly enough, I managed to play for 4 hours straight yesterday using a 1.19g saved game and the 1.19h beta patch! I know that is not recommended but that is the longest I have had the game run with no crashes. I actually got tired and had to crash myself. Really didn't notice anything weird happen either, it was not my birthday, I guess I should have played the numbers. By all rights that should not have happened, I'll try again and let you know, but I think yesterday was just my day!
