Okay, what's going on here? I'm playing through QFG5 like normal, going on the over world map, and I hear the "Random Encounter" music. "Yay! More opportunities to get money!" I think.

Game crashes. I reload. Later, I hear it again.

Game crashes.

It doesn't do this when I get to the Dragon Pillars, only when I get "ambushed". And it's done this three or four times today! It wasn't doing this yesterday.

It's not keeping me from enjoying the game, mind you. It's just mildly annoying.

It crashes when the music starts, while in the map, or does it do it when you enter the fight scene?

Sounds like you may be missing a data file. Attach a save game and I'll see what might be happening.

Try turning off the game sound in such cases, if it does it again. Might work but not sure.

I doubt that sound would have anything to do with it. It is not like the SCI games. The fact that she hears the music playing show that the game was able to find the music. If it starts crashing again, post a save game so I can take a look.

Oki. But, remember the part with the Dragon Fight near the end, where the game suddenly crashes? I had a suspision it could be similar to that.

But yeah, I wasn't sure if turning off the sound would make a difference or not. wink.gif

The dragon fire crash was not so much the sound being the cause as much as a result. It seemed to be triggered by damage from the fire. In any case, that has been fixed.

I know they fixed the "Dragon Crash" because I've fought the occassional Dragonling (which are REALLY annoying to fight! Stop flying above my head and let me hit you until you explode into chunky salsa for whatever reason!) and there's been no crashing whatsoever.

Seriously, why do they EXPLODE?!

Glad to hear that happens to someone else too. It's never consistent either. What helps me is right clicking the game icon and hitting run as administrator. The crashes still happen, but a lot less often. Also, usually they start after I do a battle in the Colosseum so maybe that triggers it?
