    I went with 1.7 in my playthrough ;) Decided to be on the safe side and go with the stable version after all.

    In fact, I didn't saw the first link (my bad), just saw Konjad and his V1.7, and knowing there are here & there a lot of infected links for this 1.8, I just wanted to share this link which is fine (no virus).I have to admit I didn't try Konjad version :oops:

    so far ive crashed the game 1.8 before even putting in stat pts, just clicking to read about them. where is the real final 1.8 version with bugs fixed? i actually went to play this game a few times years ago but the company website links are dead and STILL have never been fixed, so ok its a totally dead game, well i tried it anyway...

    Play 1.7. It's here for a reason. I guess that no one saw real 1.8 with party forced teleport to tavern and other bugs fixed. :negative:

    no, 1.7 doesnt work. I tried 1.7 and 1.8. both crashed many times before I could get to the dream battle. I only got passed the dream battle 1 time out of many tries in both, and then crashed. 1.7 I have not been able to get to the dream battle. just freezes one place or another, like talking to the guy who says why he chose the characters. so yeah.

    right now ive tried 1.7 about 20 more times with your bugfixes and most times it crashes as soon as I click the exec. if not, it crashes when I click on one of the 3 original characters to change them. if I'm lucky it waits to crash till I click to give a background. Once I actually made it to click the begin button, which crashed it. So Ive tried being stubborn, and 1.7 is completely shutting me out. This is one of the more common errors: http://postimg.org/image/5b31ws0ix/

    Hm. Probably it can't open one file or another. Check permissions, use compability mode (or how this thingy called), run as administrator, install Win98 or WinXP.
    Frankly, under my Win98 it works fine until 15-20 minutes in the game. :lol:

    EDIT:
    I understand, that my advices not very helpful, but basically experiment! More recent Windows versions fuck up a lot of old programs.

    i tried compat modes and bunch of stuff. I got to the point i can play to kill the strange creatures in the first battle, but after that when i start fighting the townsfolk after making them call me a thief, it will always crash on any random thing during the battle. I can kill a few of them but its like each time anything at all is to be done there is a 50%+ chance it crashes the game not responding or just offs it to the desktop. The error seems to be that line in the exe file i posted that I keep seeing. If the game could be hacked to fix that line or even to allow saving during combat, it might be playable off and on. At least I could save each time I killed one of them lol not really a way to play though. Someone should open the code or get it released since they've abandoned it anyway.

    Lol why? Start new game, die from strange creatures, save game and just try to explore village or leave it and try to kill lupine nearby.

    By the way, be very careful with scrolling, half of my crashes was due to it. You could scroll not by mouse, but by numpad as well, remember it.
