does it crashes without running the game in edit mode? If yes, your database is corrupted. Have you looked in the 190-192 range what is written in the UID entry in the files themselves (not just the filename) ? Yes crashes in normal mode. Found it. I had changed Loudon's name around I forgot to del...
