    Hey Folks, this post is about a recent experience I went through:

    My city loaded fine, anything seemed to be correct, and the game crashed after just 60 seconds.

    So, first of all, I went through the standard procedure, checked the last log:

    [09:46:29] LUA csScriptManager.cpp ( 522) Error No callbacks for SlowWay
    [09:46:30] LUA csScriptManager.cpp ( 522) Error Setting curved roads OFF in TagManager:RoadInit
    [09:46:30] SCRIPT csLuaState.cpp ( 291) ErrorBuild LUA_ERRRUN : runtime error
    ([string "data\design\script\tutorial\achievement.lua"]:251: bad argument #2 to 'max' (number expected, got string) stack traceback:
    [C]: in function 'max' [string "data\design\script\tutorial\achievement.lua"]:251: in function 'Update'
    [string "data\design\script\tutorial\achievementsmgr..."]:174: in function 'Update' [string "AchievementsMgr:Update()"]:1: in main chunk)
    [09:46:30] SCRIPT csScriptFunction.cpp ( 164) ErrorBuild csScriptFunction::Call Lua exception in : AchievementsMgr:Update()

    Okay, it turned out that this was not one of the common errors I had encountered before. It was a severe malfunction.

    I asked @Monty for advice, and we both tried to figure out a solution. One of the links he found that centered about the same problem was this one:
    Game crashes 60 seconds into loading a map :: Cities XL Platinum General Discussions

    Unfortunately, the thread ended without giving a clear solution, so we still had to figure out something on our own.

    Thanks to Monty, I was able to change the code correctly such that I could play the city again, and there have not been any similar crashes so far.

    What did I do?
    I went to following file: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2012\live\offline\solo\adat.cxl
    (replace <username> with your username, and "Cities XL 2012" with the version you play):

    There we had the following error:

    <tab key='RoadLength' >
    <itm key = 'completed' value = 'false' />
    <itm key = 'completedLevel' value = '2' />
    <itm key = 'active' value = 'true' />
    <itm key = 'id' value = 'RoadLength' />
    <itm key = 'completion' value = '-1.#IND' />
    </tab>

    I replaced <itm key = 'completion' value = '-1.#IND' /> with <itm key = 'completed' value = 'true' />, saved the file, and could enter the game again without any new crash :)
    I guess that it may also work to replace the line with <itm key = 'completion' value = '0' />

    Have fun playing :)

    Looked at mine. The 'completion' value = '83.1'

    As said, it was just that in my adat-file, the value was not defined, hence I needed to change it. 83.1 sounds good :p
