Upvoted: More and more crashes to desktop. Any way to report or provide useful debug info? [via /r/dwarffortress]

There's no obvious pattern so far (apart from 50% of Minotaur invasions have caused a crash) so I'm not confident filling a standard bug report without some kind of memory dump. Crashes aren't really repeatable so again I can't provide the right details.

Would be happy to run a debug build and send information on but don't know if one is available or if that's even useful to Toady.

My fort's getting pretty big (is a metropolis and have reached the criteria for a county but not had enough liaison visits for it to happen yet) and I've got a shed load of items to be tracked so it's a challenging world for the game to run, but low FPS is much more manageable than random crashes (quicksave is my new best friend)...

Upvoted: I captured a titan! Now wtf do I do with it? [via /r/dwarffortress]

On my second fortress and my second ever megabeast attack. I had forewarning he was coming as I had a Minotaur show up and the game promptly crashed, so I reloaded and prepared.

I had this little area dug out with the intention of it becoming a new sealable entrance with trading post so I can let traders out without endangering the rest of my fort. with the warning I had coming, there was enough time to chain a cow up in there.

will it eventually starve to death or do I need to set up a shooting gallery for my marksdwarves? there's open ground above, so presumably I'll need to wall in my shooting range? can I cage it somehow or even train it? will its presence upset my dwarves? if it shoots webs, can it shoot them upwards or will fortifications protect my dwarves from it?

or do I just keep it locked away until the next siege, let him out to slaughter the goblins then repeat the capturing process?
