  3. Thanks guys for helping out. I will have to adjust the next due amount up by $15 as I can't make the last two amounts go against the bill that just got paid. I'm going to look into how we can deal with this in the future.

    Unfortunately the error log you posted is in every log of mine so there's nothing to pinpoint why you game is crashing.
    The next line I have is
    ( 35) Assert mvMovieBackbuffer::mvMovieBackbuffer : unable to open bink handle to file data/interface/video/LogoFocus.bik

    That's because I took the videos out to speed up loading.
    The next lines you should of got was

    [10:05:44] LUA csScriptManager.cpp ( 523) Error Doing New message box with noAction

    [10:05:44] LIVE lavAvatarManager.cpp ( 591) Error [lavAvatarManager] AvatarSetDescription : unknown avatar

    and then the map slots start loading.

    I'd try seeing if checking the game files through steam might help.
    Also try renaming the Cities XXL folder in C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\focus home interactive and see what happens when XXL builds a new folder and you start a fresh game.
