Is it that a CD or floppy version?
Is there anything on the console when the crash occurs?
Also, could you run the game with "-d1 --debugflags=DrawOpcodes,FuncOpcodes", redirect the output to a file and attach that here?

Anyway , here is the error list, only the last page is visible ... but I guess the 3-4 last lines are the important ones

It is the floppy version , As far as I know there isn't hebrew CD-rom edition (It was published on Israel, but not translated).

Hmm, seems like it fails in o1_printTotText() (prints localized text), then.
Unfortunately, that function is rather complex and there are many places where it could theoretically go wrong (but shouldn't, of course), and it's near impossible to debug without having a version where it goes wrong.
I don't suppose you have any experience with debugging? Or maybe you've got a spare copy left you could donate?

I only have a copy from abandonware sites. I know someone with the original copy (who uploaded it long ago), but I don't have a 5 1/4 inch disk drive. The company who did the translation is out of buisness today, altough Coktel Vision copy rights still belong to sierra I guess...

Sorry, we do not provide any kind of support for warez copies (even if you say you have the original on a 5 1/4 inch drive). Also note that legally spoken, there is no such thing as abandonware.

And no, debating this won't help, we follow this strict policy to protect ourselves from legal problems.
