just to add my personal observation..It might very well be Steam, as when the game disappears from the screen I can see a Steam box pop-out with some games advertisements that I did not have when I started the game. May be when Steam box pops out it crashes the game?

1) Steam got an update today, it fixed something similar to what you described.
2) The log_metro.txt file gets re-written every time you start the game, so you need to make sure you uploaded the log right after the crash.

Hello,
I also have problem with game crash.

I cant load last game save. The game starts up, I select exact game save, it loads ALL 100% and after clicking on PLAY it closes.

I deleted settings.script + log_metro.txt, checked ATI card drivers and all are current.

Log shows nothing bad:

Does this happens only with one saved game? Try with another saved game. The file might be corrupted.

Hello, yes i thought the same, I take the last save before this, but after some time of playing it was not able to load the new save once again.
I installed mod manager and it tells "missing vehicles x04 bus" etc.... I thought that mod manager will repair it, but it does not and if I load it once again, it says still the same.

Do you have the latest version?
"missing vehicle x04 bus" means you don't have the Player's choise DLC (added for free in patch 1.0.21).
If you are using Steam, make sure auto-update is enabled. You can also get the patch here
You will need to register your game in order to see the link above. This is how

He does have 1.0.21 by the log.

I think Mod Manager disabled some mods. You should check if everything is green in first TAB of ModManager. Either that or you have corrupted files. Uninstall and install the game again. Or remove MM since it seems what it cause the problem in the first place.

If you have used the vehicle in a line and you try to load a game and the vehicle isn't loaded CIM will crash/not load the game successfully.
Instead of crashing MM warns you that a vehicle isn't there. So enabling vehiclepack04 in ModManager is a good idea.

For a detailed analysis we would need the log_metro.txt with a ModManager run, but I guess your savegame is simply corrupted.
And I don't think MM is the curl print, as the first log_metro.txt showed a MM free version.

If you really use only the DLCs mentioned in your log. You may attach your savegame or send it in private message. Then I can testload it. This may not help to fix your problem but It can maybe add some new test cases for adding even more checks to ModManager.

Hello,
thank you for your help very much. I thought that save file is corrupted, so I began to play older save but after some day of playing I made new save and I am not able to open it too.
It is very strange that save load goes to 100% and the game crashes after click on "Play button".

Seems to be corrupted, haven't found out where exactly the error is. If this happens a lot you should test your system stability, check your system memory...

My PC is quite new, and I never had problems with some crashes. This is only game where I have problems. But I tried again to play and save every 10 minutes... Save A-C OK, but Save D,E,F are all corrupted. Everytime it happens after some game time after the last save... Hm, looks like I have to uninstall it, because it is tiring to play and save and think if I could continue or not.
