Thanks. The showconfig output supports the hypothesis that a memory access in a particular address space is the culprit
int p; // A

@utri007

Does it guru during initial load up of the application or does it happen randomly during play?

There is a bug in the engine already identified that appears to be an illegal memory access relating to opening the screen. This is totally reproducible in UAE where the binary won't start without allocating "32-bit chip ram" (a new class of chip ram not related to the original 2-8MB setting, lives in a different address range). Allocating that memory likely prevents a bus error from the access.

Crashes my Cyberstorm 060 AGA Amiga on loading too. Under OS3.1, OS3.5 and OS3.9. Just a white screen lock up under 3.1 but crashes and reboots under 3.5 and 3.9.
