Hi guys, I recently got the urge to try and boot up DK2 and have been using the wealth of knowledge on your forums to try and get it working and not crashing too much. I got it relatively stable, but I'm having trouble getting one campaign level to not crash. When I load up Besieged, or level 6a, my game always crashes within thirty seconds or so of gameplay starting - it gets through the intro of the level just fine, and I can play around a bit, and then no matter what it just crashes.

I'm on Vista (32 bit) and have patched to the latest version of 1.73. I've tried the usual optimizations suggested. I've tried switching the map files to the 1.7 and 1.3 versions. Nothing, no matter what I do it seems to fail. Anyone know if there's anything I can try, or am I just going to have to hope that the alternative level works? Thanks.

What resolution do u use?
I had the same problem on this level, changed resolution to 800x600
and everytning became ok.

Thanks a bunch - that fixed my issue. In fact I didn't crash once in that level or the next, a big improvement over before.
