    [​IMG] Heya. When I try to go north to ragpickers square from the zone with the marketplace and the lady who picks nails out of boards with her bare hands the game crashes on the loading screen, and I get a "Runtime Error!" message.

    I tried reinstalling, but I'm using my old save games. I'm using the old 4CD game. I'm using Windows XP professional with SP2 installed.

    I was wondering if there is a solution to this? I know that guy Pharod is in the next zone, but I can't seem to get into that zone to continue the story at the moment. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Haven't played this game in a long time and I've forgotten enough about the story to have the whole thing be interesting again :p

    Most likely due to SP2, because I've never heard of this issue before. SP2 causes problems with many older games, unfortunately. Reverting to SP1 may be the only practical solution, if SP2 is actually the cause of the problem.
