I got the crash three times so there must be a way to trigger it :)

Another bug:

If you have already revolved the table while the innkeeper is out of the room, and then try to sit on the rotten stool Ego says something like "I don't want to do that right now", but then turns invisible forever.

Shadow1000: Thanks for the exact bug, I won't need to trigger it to put in a patch for that.

Mandle: Some other people got that too, I'll have a look at what causes it.

Thanks, Mandle. I had to start the game again because there is a bug stopping me from getting to that point.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Once Hoxton had broken the stool, I couldn't ask the barman to serve me anything else.
Also, I had another crash:
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
In the bell room, I went back down the ladder and when I returned the bell had stopped swinging and was stuck in the right-hand position. I left the room and returned again to see if that would fix it, but it just crashed instead.


I finally managed to finish the game after that, though! :-D It's a really great game, so many funny moments, and the graphics are fantastic! It's just a shame about the crashes!

How did you get past this point without crashing? I finished all the other games and I really want to finish this one so I can get on with posting my comments and voting. Thank you!

@Shadow1000:

You mean in the bell tower? Don't leave the room once you're in there. You need to pick something up and use it to get up to the beam.
Or have you already done that?

Yup. I'm up there and I'm using the flattened crucifix on the yoke. The bell starts to drop and the game crashes.

I had this 4 times and can't get past this point.

In that case I must have been lucky, because that's exactly what I did and the game carried on. Sorry about that. :-\

Okidokes. So far nothing from the author so I guess I'll call this one a wrap and proceed with my comments and voting.

Thanks anyway!

Have you tired playing the game on the alternate graphics setting? Sometimes the graphics setting can cause crashes with certain effects.

It would be a real shame if you didn't get to the end of this masterpiece because it is a very touching ending IMO...

I'm trying to fix it, I'll release a bugfixed version in a bit, I'm trying to get together all the bugs and do em at once.

Are you playing on fullscreen mode or something? What's different to the default?

Cool! Will I be able to continue from where I left off or will my saved games not work with the new version?

Yes, playing in fullscreen. I can't remember if I changed any defaults but I don't think so.
