Post [C3 KB] Game crash with error, "MemoryMappedFile::Open"
The game crashes with the following error, "MemoryMappedFile::Open"
Issue: A Creatures 3 player found that an error was occuring with his game when he started Creatures 3 with the following error message:-MemoryMappedFile::OpenPlease make sure the following file exists:p:Program FilesCreatures 3CreatureGalleries07-dawn-aanlg-bx8gn-t77a3-g38kg3.creaturegallery.
Analysis: The issue is associated with the Creature creation routine, the Creature Import routine and the amount of available disk space on your hard drive. When a new creature is created or imported, the main engine generates a new file in the Creature Galleries folder. If there is insufficient disk space to create the new file, you will get a partial file which causes the problems when starting the game again. Usually Windows would have generated messages warning you about the lack of disk space on your machine before this error occurs.
Resolution: 1) If one of the files in the Creature Galleries is corrupted you will need to delete the corrupted file.
2) Make a note of the file name or copy it to your clipboard.
3) Find a similar file in the Creature Galleries folder and make a duplicate of it.
4) Rename the duplicate to the name formerly used for the corrupt file. If there is no file in the Creature Gallery which matches the file name in the error dialogue box you will need to make a note of the file name mentioned in the dialogue box and then follow steps 3 and 4 above.

The file in the Creature Gallery will not relate to the creature in your game but it is a work around which should allow you to save your game world.The other work around for this issue is to ensure that you always have a good deal of (at least 10%) of hard drive space left on your machine.
