If you really had a corrupt system file it could be any number of things un-related to beta, but may have been triggered more by the beta. It could be bad ram, bad hard drive (or going bad)
no it would be the beta had some graphical fuzzy pictures issues on my Xp Computer while on my brothers Win 7 it had no issues and was far more stable both had Nvidia Cards.
so far the changes at stardock would be quiet instant since they would fix it right away but they wouldn't be able to pick up issues from people with different system specs i would assume that stardock have about all the same computers or a few more variations of older or newer specs so they relies on us to send in crash reports as well as the graphics one.
we only get a beta update once a week or basically once they got the build ready.
will Beta 4 contain more than just the mod tools
it would just add the mod tools they are already using as well as update the game play / add more features
Best bet is to send the reviewers a copy they can download off Impulse,
make sure you also say how many free more features plan to be added after release
The magic system. This deserves its own post so I won’t go into it.
magic so far feels almost broken & useless in Beta 3c like to see how good its gotten for beta 4.
