DescriptionInstall: Dungeon Master (FTL/Software Heaven) http://whdload.de/games/DungeonMaster.html
GameVersion: V3.6 from Psygnosis
SlaveVersion: from 18.12.2001

I reported earlier that I thought I had a slightly different "V3.6" version and wondered if it could be supported. I had failed to realize that the game saves the language selection on the main disk, and no longer believe that the version is any different. I just finished this game.
The real problem appears to be that sometimes the game crashes during a disk operation. If this is a write it leaves the disk image corrupt. I started taking regular backups of my save after losing it once and having to restart the entire game. Only lost it once after that, but occasionally the game dies while loading itself or the save.
I could have misinterpreted the symptoms before and concluded that the main disk image was corrupt simply because it did not work and had been modified, but wouldn't be surprised if this couldn't happen when saving the language selection. If the save disk is corrupt, the game will not start either.
The error displayed is always a Privilege Violation at ExpMem $8F6.
TagsNo tags attached.

Referring to bug #1943, which was a false conclusion.

I can confirm this behaviour. I also backuped my saves.
