    I think it's any level that has a lord of the land with a gem attached to him.

    I asked because if it's not an official level, it might be a problem with the Lord lacking a name.

    tried both a level i made and a modified official level (level 14) where i added a vampire lvl 10 with 4 font of mana nearby a wall to the lord of the land to make an easy test :P

    i didnt try an unchanged level

    if anyone knows a way to avoid the crash to occur, other than not pointing the mouse cursor on the lord of the land i am eager to listen to :P

    in the while i am just finishing a bland gameplay modification, then will try to experiment and find a way over this...

    Can you try this with a fresh / unmodified level?

    This also may be an issue with the text file. I just remembered a similar bug that would occur when I was doing changes around my patch. I would change certain text IDs related to a creature, but then, long story short, there was some messiness with the text file, causing a crash when hovering over a specific creature because the toolbar is looking for a text ID that doesn't exist in the current text file.

    wow... i didn't do the tests you asked me yet... but i found something interesting...

    somehow the settings in registry i had screw overing mouse cursor on lord of land,

    i used an extensiv sfv file checksum on everything, and all was fine... no idea how that bad "magic" happens... then i try to load registry .reg

    and puff i get all the problems i had...

    now is the time to isolate which entry in registry of bullfrog corrupts the game

    -----------

    now focusing on lord of the land bug...

    the bug triggers when your mouse cursor is over the lord of the land, and in the windows registry, inside bullfrog there is this entry: "Level Number"=dword:00000014

    i noticed this entry is linked with a specific level... for example if is set to 1 it triggers: antonius, if set to 2 probably sigmund or darius... but the name of the lord of the land changes based on the entry in the file registry.
    this is true even for user created map...

    so in the end is probably a string problem... when a lord of the land name has to be selected the game picks it based on the entry of the registry.

    i am still not sure which file holds the names... i can tell you i have a fully translated game :P so this is why probably this problem happens to me... and maybe not to other people...
