Wielding Executor crashes the game for a Weaponsmith
Any hand or missile slot

I got Executor from a greater vault in the FGJC. I suspect it has to do with the level 25 class skill of Weaponsmiths adding {<metal>} to all metallic items. Previous game with a Hurthling thief I also got the jet-black battle axe, but I was able to wield it without problems. Version 57 without NotEye.

On a side note, the automatic backup creation is working just fine. I have saved a copy of the backup file in case it is required.

I've loaded your backup in R58, unequipped your right hand weapon and equipped executor. I even managed to slaughter many of the enemies without any problems.

Seems to work in R58. Please try it there. I'm closing this issue asI can't reproduce it.

I have downloaded both versions of R58. The version with NotEye integration does not seem to crash when Executor is wielded. The version without NotEye still crashes for me though..

Which operating system are you using? And when does the game crash? Directly after you wield the weapon? Or if you try to hit the first opponent?

So far I haven't been able to reproduce it (using the current version without NotEye on OSX).

I am on win7. The game stops responding upon equipping the weapon.

I could reproduce the problem on Win7. It could be some kind of memory corruption related to the length of the item name. Very odd.

The character is named "Lawrghaw;leh", it this correct?

Did the game crash before playing this character (using this save game)?

There were two problems:
- the very long item name (which needed two lines) moved the whole information block at the bottom of the view beyond the visible area
- a missing sanity check in cursor positioning then lead to memory corruption as the last line of the view was printed

Both problems are fixed now. The crash only happened with the Windows version without NotEye, but potentially all other versions might crash due to the memory corruption.

My apologies for not responding earlier, happy to see this fixed. And yes, my character was indeed named Lawrghaw;leh. I was kind of planning to reroll but figured I'd give it a go anyway. Thought the name was kind of funny so I didn't change it. Especially imagining the shopkeepers saying "Have a nice expedition, Lawrghaw;leh!".
