At last I've had some time to really look things over here in this dmod. I think I have some good news now both for several of those following along in our Forum (here at the "lockup after picking TUX icon" discussion) and others (from the "IT'S NOT WORKING!!" discussion). Hooray!

But, first I wanted to talk to you about your recent testing effort. When I read your above September 14th, 12:31 description I thought that it sounds like it might be the case (that for the purposes of your test only?), you were skipping ahead using something like "the utlimate cheat" and missed some of the times Dink meets the fairies on the path up the mountainside. What happened to the fairies greeting Dink and warning him of the BSoD near the place of the Talismans? I did not see that this took place in your description. The player cannot skip any of the times the fairies appear if you want the game to work correctly.

So, for this patch, I have added code to even further enforce the above game success requirements. I also added some code that should unlock the screen every time Dink activates a talisman (just in case you need it to leave the talisman selection screen).

I also found what I think caused early crashes in the dmod (while Dink was still in Martridge's house, before he departed to the "Lonely Isle") and would like to encourage all those that had problems getting out of Martridge's home to try again.

So, be sure to ask your local system administrator (Striker and/or redink1) for [THE LAST QUEST (part 2): The Iron Ring of Destiny 1.10] to be made available for download!

So, if you continue to have problems with screenlock on this screen (and have experienced all of these 7 times the fairies are on screen), then please tell me exactly what takes place on the Talisman selection screen.
// 1=scr 611; 1st meeting takes place; double bonca battle w/Dink
// 2=scr 546; fairies meet by waters that fall 3 times, the last underground
// 3=scr 290; meet near purple puddle after ghost3; confront Dink or talk
// 4=scr 234; yellow flower; fairies meet by undergound lake of fire (lava).
// 5=scr 259; meeting; stone giants summoned
// 6=scr 172; meeting just before combat with fire elementals
// 7=scr 105; meeting just before the choice of 3 symbols & BSoD

Thanks for your ongoing patience.
