ADOM crashes while trying to load a game

Hi everyone!

Game was saved while standing on the same tile as the statue.

When I load, I get this screen:



After pressing any button:



In any case, I got saved game file, if needed.

P.S. ADOM should get a working save-on-crash mechanism, like other modern roguelikes...

It does have one, but not all crashes trigger it.

As a general 'where to save the game hint' I would suggest, when the character is not standing on some 'feature'. It is however good that you did in this case, for the sake of bugfixing.

It might actually kill your character:

It indeed does have one, but in a last few years I remember few-several painful crashes, and only one time when auto save was triggered.
Hence, it does not count for me at all.

Heh :) .

Another bug then, as the event "entering a tile with covered pit" has already happened.
