    As the title says, my current game keeps crashing if I attack in melee. I'm attaching the save. No idea if it's my weapon, the various buffs I have running, or the curse that Krong just piled on my Cloak of Sagan.

    Er, it's not letting me upload the save file. The error message just says that there was an error. Anyone know what's up with this?

    The save would be very helpful - maybe if you zip it?

    - using a particular weapon?
    - using a particular skill?
    - attacking a particular monster or is it any monster?

    Seems to be any monster. I think when it freezes I can see an explosiony animation from the keystone Egyptian skill happening... let's see about posting that save again...

    Yep, zipping it worked. Just walk north, melee an enemy or two, and the game should freeze. I mean, not that it should freeze, but... well, you get the idea.

    Hi DuckAndCower, can you zip and attach your autosave.dredmorsave folder? The file you've attached is the old format autosave.sav and is probably not the autosave you're looking for.

    Done. Thanks for the heads-up. Obviously, disregard that obsolete save.

    [edit] Just tested a bit. Still freezes after I remove all my buffs.

    [edit] Also freezes when my weapons is removed.

    [another edit] Game also crashes when an enemy attacks me in melee. This is getting pretty challenging.
