Game Froze and Save Will Not Load

Today I was wandering the Caverns of Chaos when my game just locked up. I could move the cursor, and the music continued playing, but I couldn't open any menus or quit without going Ctrl+Alt+Delete, opening the Task Manager and Ending the Task.

Unfortunately, now the save file (an Orc Paladin with incredible promise) won't load and crashes the game. It says I should find the file adom.err, and use it to file a bug report. Well, I did, but I can't open the file, so... here I am.

Hm... there is a chance that there is a backup of the saved game, please check the ADOM FAQ on how to use the backups.

You should also check the "adom.log" files in addition to "adom.err" and upload it/them here.

I had a similar problem. I was able to open the adom.err file using Microsoft Word. It looked like Wordpad or Notepad would work as well. When I opened mine it just repeated the error message and gave several pages of code. Not really something you would want to type in the bug report.
