Hi there,

Just after I get the magic water in the forest, I gone to the teleporter and talk with Shryke. He came along with me, but few seconds later the game crash. This happen every time and I just can keep playing.

Any ideas?

You must be using GNU Linux. There's a bloke called Beuc on who may be able to help. There will be something in the log output in the shell that probably indicates an error. Send him the error at his contact address.

Newer builds don't seem to work as well as the older ones.

Hey, can one of you send me a saved game so I can try and fix this?

It seems that I arrived a little late to your thread (4,5 years late) but anyway maybe it can help someone that comes to this thread after my post.

I had the same problem, after giving the water to Shryke it crashed after using the teleporter.

I had the latest version available: 1.08; and i rememembered that i didnt have any problem when I played this DMOD years ago, so what I did was this:

I downloaded and installed an old version of the main game:

and installed POTA in the respective folder.

It couldn't load the DMOD, so i tried applying the patch to upgrade to 1.07:

All i had to do was copying the saveX.dat files from the POTA in the latest version to the POTA in the 1.07 version.

...and voilá
