You run your map on the Internet? If so, it's supposed to crash. BZFS and Windows 2000/XP do not like each other.

If you're running your map on a LAN or local it should work though. If that's that case you could send me your map and the BZFS parameters you use, and I'll look into it.

Nothing you can do then Terminator. The bug already has been reported and the priority increased. Until the bug is fixed your only option to run a BZFS server is to use Linux/Unix. It's what I did (installed Linux Mandrake just to run BZFS :lol-old:)
