I'm on a Win7x64 machine with 8GB RAM, trying to run 2.4.0-beta2. Whenever I try to start a game with the maximum map size and number of players, it works on getting started for about half an hour and then crashes horribly.
Is there anything I can do to make the game run at this level? It doesn't have to be fast; I just want it to be playable.
Otherwise, is there any way short of trial and error to figure out the maximum size and scope of a game you can run on a machine without crashing it?
You can get help here if Freeciv doesn't start on your computer, or if you keep getting fatal errors while playing etc.

I had the problem that a 126-player game was very slow, and fixed it by removing explorers from the starting units.. Otherwise the AI's would form an incredibly complex and ever changing diplomacy matrix between everyone.
