    First, I have a high end computer (as of last year!)

    Second, I have had absolutely no slow downs and no glitches up until now.

    Here's the problem: The game freezes. The computer locks up. And the only thing I can do is turn the computer off manually and restart it.

    Here's the situation: There are two spots (that I'm aware of on the level of the Temple with Earth, Air and Fire - 1 is just east of the fire temple in a hallway. I'm okay until I move the characters into it from the temple (haven't tried the other direction) and the game simply freezes. The other is north of that in a parallel running hallway with four ogres (just north of the talking mirror). Again, everything is fine until I move from west to east through the hall. And then the game freezes.

    Has anyone else had this problem? How'd you fix it?

    This may be because the computer's AI is having an NPC scrying for your party- and that somehow constitutes an "attack" or and AoO, and either the sword Fragarach or Scather is in your party.

    If you have either of those swords, go drop them in a safe place (i.e. your chests in Nulb or the well outside the jewelers in Homlett) and go try that level without them.

    I have heard that another alternative is -if you know where the areas are and it sounds like you do-chuck a fireball into that area before entering it and it will "force combat" and the scrying witll stop.

    Hope those tactics help.
