I don't know what the deal is but it's getting absolutely ridiculous: http://i.imgur.com/dlUePRG.png
If it doesn't decide to crash during the first few seconds of a race repeatedly (always great at killing the mood) or somewhere near the end of a race (that's fun also) it will have the nerve to crash after the race completed screen (fails to re-initialize back to the menus). Far as I can tell the so-called 'auto-saved' doesn't seem to list any such thing in the load game menu upon going back in so even if a race is finished I'm always screwed when a crash occurs anyway. This is with the latest v1.159.
Anyone got an idea as to the culprit maybe? Or is it just another case of the norm that Carma games are crash happy, especially modded? It really makes progress difficult having to buy all these new vehicles in order to use them only to lose progress because of these samey-looking but related crashes (always some access violation). I can live with an odd crash every so often, but my success rate of playing and completing a race is pretty much 2 out of 5 with the MAX-Pack installed.
