Default Segmentation Faults

I've been getting alot of segmentation faults during normal gameplay. It's been happening every few minutes now when in a game. I am running Linux Mint 14 64-bit

Does it give you any more information? Are you doing anything specific when it segfaults? It might be helpful if you could email me your save game info. Your save games are in ~/.local/DroxOperativeDemo/User

Ok, I've emailed my save.

The crashes seem to happen most often when I'm in combat, such as firing a laser, although they have happened just flying around.

Can you get me a little more info about your segfaults?

I think a core dump would be helpful.
1) Find out what your current core dump setting is, in a terminal do:
ulimit -c
2) Turn on core dump, in a terminal do:
ulimit -c unlimited
3) Crash the game again
4) Hopefully this will create a file called core in the Drox directory. Zip and email me this file. I think this step is only going to work if you have permissions to write to the Drox directory.
5) Put core dump stuff back to normal, in a terminal do:
ulimit -c #
where # is the number that was returned in step 1 (probably 0).

Also after a crash, run this command from a terminal:
dmesg | tail
and email/post the line that says something about Drox.

To get everyone else back in the loop, it looks like version 1.039 of the demo fixes this problem.
