Main Menu Crash
Crash on the main menu

You can crash Adom by doing the following:

1. Create a new character and quit.
2. On the quit menu, create a memorial file about your character.
3. Restart with a new character. Should crash at this point.

Confirmed on 32 bit ubuntu version.
Also happens after death, not just quitting.
And also when choosing any other option from the list (at least highscores or game summary).

Quit/died with about 10 characters, tried creating a memorial file and several other options then restarting (and even going to main menu an starting a new game) and nothing happened.


Can reproduce it only in a more specific scenario:
Die/Quit, then click ALL the death menu options one after another from top to bottom (l/s/h/i/f) and then restart. Game dies every time.

Managed to narrow it down to: if I click menu options at least four times in any configuration (like 3x view inventory 1x generate memorial file) the game will crash on restart.
Nothing out of the ordinary happens with less than 4 menu choices it seems.

I can confirm the problem and already found the cause. :(

As Ravenmore pointed out: if the death menu gets displayed too often, some memory is overwritten, leading to a crash if you want to restart.
