Does it happen even if you start a new game from scratch? Also, can you run the file integrity check just in case? Open the attached ZIP DrakanMD5.zip and put Drakan.md5 in Drakan folder, then download the Md5Checker
. When you run it, click the Add button and browse to the file Drakan.md5 you put in Drakan folder earlier and see if any file fails the check.
If you upload the save file before the crash, I can see whether I can reproduce it on my end. Also, under some rare circumstances, I did manage to get my game to corrupt its registry settings on one occasion. This can be fixed by starting regedit and navigating to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Surreal\Riot Engine and deleting the Settings101 entry, although this is probably not the issue in this case.
Despite my efforts, the game still has some issues even after AiO Patch. With savegames, there is an oddity if the game was saved under Windows XP or earlier system, then transfer the save to a newer system, after you load it, the map icon just blinks indefinitely for some reason. Makes you wonder if there are any other side effects when loading older save games.
I bring it up since this site hosts some older save games. However, we should try to get to the bottom of those crashes first. Taking someone else's savegame is just a workaround.
Also, check this thread
out, the dgVoodoo2 part.
PS: A question for Arokh's Twin, any ideas why the forum software complains about .md5 extension if you try to upload it as attachment?
