Default Has anyone managed to finish the game?

At the end of the game you're supposed to talk with the boss before beating him, however the game crashes as soon as I approach (sure, it's the ultimate way to defeat the player, but that's not the way it's supposed to end!).

Question1: has anyone managed to talk to the boss?
Question2: are there crash logs somewhere to help me diagnose the cause?

I didn't count, I'd say about 35h, but that's NOT the point here!

No, not yet, anyway either it's just my computer (unlikely imho) and in that case I'll solve my issue myself OR everyone crashes at the end and the tech support won't be able to do much as they don't have the source code.

yes but perhaps they can request a patch directly from the devs.

True, but I'm kinda used to try everything by myself before contacting the tech support (as a matter of fact, I only contacted a tech support once). Fixing issues yourself is more gratifying, AND you don't look like a crybaby AND it can be fun sometimes (did I mention I unpacked the .pk files and found some leftovers from...Dawn of Magic!?).
Anyway whining at the tech support is definitely not the first thing I do.

Interesting :/ ...So the core of the game is correct but somehow something went wrong when localizing. It gives clues where to look for. (or I might be the only idiot with this problem)

Partly yes, thanks to your useful intel: removed media1.pk (the russian to english patch) and tcha-tchin! I can talk to the boss........in russian, but that's better than windowsdesktopian. I'll now see If I can get it back in english.

PS:You see nice picture during loadtimes, right? In the russian version there is also half a page of text; too bad I don't know what's it's about.
