Hi I just got this game recently, and I must say that it is pretty good! =]

My problem is simple - Every time I kill a ghost, my game crashes. The first time this happened is in the crypts, there was just a single ghost in a hallway. After I killed it, my game froze, there was a fuzzy screen, then nothing. I cant Alt + TAB out of it, nor can I Ctrl + Alt + Delete. All I can do is restart my computer. There are no error messages shown, just a crash. I tried to run past all the ghosts, but there is a cutscene where there are some skeletons fighting some ghosts, and I crash where the ghosts die in that cutscene as well.

I cant get out of the game when this bug occurs, so I dont know if the logfile.txt is going to be accurate, but here it is. I saved right before I killed the ghost.

I remember someone having this problem already. Please help us find the bug by answering the following questions:

- Does the bug occur everytim you kill a ghost, or just sometimes?
- Does the bug still occur if you disable the sound (with the options.exe)
- At what point of time exactly does the crash occur? (at the moment the death sound should be played, the time the visual effect starts, or at its very end)
- There are several types of ghosts. Does it occur with all of them?
