Crash solution

I believe the problem with all the crashing(at least for the ones with array) is Santa has an array of cities to visit. The program goes thorough adding one to the index each time.

The problem occurs when he gets to the last city and adds 1. their is no position there and so the game crashes.

SOLUTION:

Get as many cities as possible into the game not as few cities as possible.

Makes sense to me, and my crash behavior seems to suggest something similar.

Thank you very much for the tip.

Works perfectly well with no other players and 50 cities. Thank you!

Also, I really love the game, always did. Not enough to actually, you know, play it, but the concept, the atmosphere - always destroys me.

Ingenious analysis from a programming standpoint which delays the crashing issue. Let's flood this guy with reputation!!
