Update!  We fixed the bug and restested the game.  It was a very simple fix (just changing one integer), but better safe than sorry.  It doesn't seem to have broken anything (at least, nothing critical that we can detect) so we are uploading it to Steam's servers now.  Usually they are prompt about implementing the fixes, but it's a busy time of year for them.  I'll update this thread once they've done it.  In the meantime, avoid the notebook until after the dorm.

Damn! I ran into another crash, Dave. I loaded from a save before I'd gotten the notebook and headed straight to the dorms, but this time the game crashed either before the notebook popped up during the conversation with the punk or after, like the last time. I can't remember for sure and I can't reproduce the crash, but here's the error message I got when it occured:

Aha.  I know this one.  This is related to the previous notebook crash, which is fixed now.  Make sure the cursor is not on the "notebook area" before the notebook pops up (i.e. keep the cursor at the bottom of the screen during that conversation).  You only have to do this the first time the notebook comes up.  After that, you are definitely past the "danger zone" and you will have zero problems.

It's so weird that these bugs must have been in the game for almost five years and nobody has encountered them until now. :o

Yay!  Glad you got through the rest of the game without incident.  Hopefully this is the only "critical" bug anyone encounters.  If anyone finds any more, definitely let us know.

I'll just wait for the patch from steam then.

The game is fixed on Desura.  The Steam version will be fixed whenever they hit the "accept upgrade" button.

I managed to finish it without further crashes, thanks! I ran into some strange bugs at the hospital but let's just blame it on ghosts ;)

Lovely game, shorter than I'd thought, but the lenght was perfect for me in the end.

Wow, looking around to see if anyone else had this problem and it turns out the Dev has already diagnosed the problem and uploaded a patch to Steam within hours of it's release from the Royale Bundle. Why can't all Game studios be this efficient  :P :D

Haha.  Maybe because they don't launch with critical bugs in the first place? :D

Sorry for the double post, but Steam confirms the bugfix is LIVE!  It's like the bug never happened!

...

Maybe nobody noticed?

Thanks for that! Steam is already re-downloading Legacy. That was really fast!

Will the DRM-free direct download at Indy Royal be updated as well? And what about Desura?

Indie Royale gets the games from Desura, so... yes!  It should already be done.

Confirming that post patch the punk no longer slams the door shut in my face with such force that it crashes the game  ;D
Cheers for the quick fix  :D
