Reproduce: Saving a newly created ship, opening a saved game
Expected: Trying to save a ship or load a game (and other interactions with the file system I guess)
Observed: Crash to desktop without any error messages
Running Windows 8. This is fixed by running the exe with admin privileges.
OK, I'm going to have to read up on where Windows 8 wants the game to put its files. Thanks for the report!
I think it's because I installed the game in the Program Files folder, and Windows 8 doesn't like programs changing files in that folder, without having admin rights.
