I'm trying to complete the Gathering of the Seven quest and I am/was in the lower levels of the cave inside the Dwarven Halls.
I have a summoned skeleton and a summoned Dreadknight. I saved my game after the first fight with the tall green wizard guy. I didn't manage to get his name.
The reason I decided to save the game is because has decided to completely quit for no apparent reason whenever it wants to.
Now, when I try to load my game, the picture of the sword gets about 3/4 of the way across before the screen turns black and then I find myself back at the desktop.
I wouldn't be so upset about this if it didn't happen all the time.
Even if by some chance decided to load then I still have to look forward to quitting whenever it feels like it.

How many files are in the saved game folder? There should be 32 at that point.

I'll let you know when I get a chance to take a look.
Do you think I may have too many or too few?
I have a few other saved games that are from very early on.

Too few would be a problem, though the game is able to handle some missing files by replacing them with default versions (ie the now-fixed Map has gone back to black bug in v1.33).

One person had the version number of the saved game become corrupt, so the game crashed when trying to load. He was able to fix it by hex editing one of the saved game files to replace the characters showing up as the version number with the expected values.
If the files/folder had somehow been marked as read-only, that would also cause the game to crash trying to load it.
