Need a savegame, please

Postby Ratchet » Sat Mar 03, 2012 9:05 am

My game always crashing after rescue Arokh and getting the lava breath. This is right after defeating queen Shilla. There is a savegame here in the downloads (http://www.arokhslair.net/downloads/shilla_bug_save.zip) but just <i>before</i> getting the lava breath. I need a savegame when the animation with Arokh is done and he got the lava.
I would be very grateful if somebody can send me a working savegame to ratchet@uni.de
Thanks!

P.S. Patch 445++ is installed.

Ratchet, can you send me save game just before crash (use hotkey for quick save to get it as close crash as possible)?

I am currently fixing as many glitches in Drakan as possible for the upcoming Drakan mod, so every such saved game state will be invaluable for me :)

Just post it to https://rapidshare.com/ and give me link back :)

It's exactly the same point where the "Shilla bug save" starts. Just walk some steps outside the cave and the game crashed while the animation with Arokh. Here's my savegame -> https://rapidshare.com/files/1397753913/quicksav.rsg

Okay, confirmed crash in 445++ and already fixed in beta mod 10th, thanks for posting save game :)

Here is the save game that should be 445++ compatible and is just after transformation sequence:

Wow thanks, will test that as soon as possible.
BTW: I got many other random crashes mostly when flying and fighting against dragons. It is not absolutely clear when the game crashes. Sometimes it workes, when you fly another route and do not start fighting. Interested?

It's probably already fixed - the reason is the way how the game handles lens flares, so every lighting attack or transformation sequence can result it potential crash.
I have beta testers team, which are hunting bugs in Drakan 10th mod and currently it seems they had caught every single one. I mean, we are able to play from begin to end several times without even single crash :)

There is a moddb page here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/drakan-10th-anniversary :)

There is no release date at this point, as both Kronikarz and I are pretty busy with other stuff, but we target approximately Q2 of 2012 :)
