First, let me say that I do not invoke ITG lightly.
It seems to me that of the many discussions which arose regarding identify-this-game questions, one of the central issues was "Without artifacts from the game itself, there is no way for anyone but the original asker to know if the answer is correct, and any answers will by definition be guesswork." (my phrasing).
This question right here: Why is my game constantly crashing silently to desktop with no error message? seems to have that problem as well.
Only the asker is seeing the problem. It's random so it can't be consistently duplicated, and Crash To Desktop is such a generalized problem that votes on answers are unreliable - a fix offered in answer A may be the accepted one, but the fix suggested in answer D might be the one that solves the problem for me.
fbueckert had this to say about one of the answers:
That's a giant list of problems and possible solutions, which, by itself, is quite unhelpful.
Frankly, that sums up the question itself to me.
Therefore, I have two questions, one tactical and one strategic:
- Does anything need to be done about this particular question?
- Does anything need to be done about questions of this type?
