Could not reproduce this with the same revision and the same version of the game.

Seems you either are missing data files or are using a pirated copy.

It's not a problem with omer_mor's game, I confirm this bug also happens with the CD version (v1.1). To produce the bug, you have to quickly click through the dialog. Same console output:

Assertion failed: idx >= 0 && (uint)idx < _size, file ./common/array.h, line 164
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Pesky bug to reproduce in a debugger. In the murder scene at the start of the intro, there is a timing problem that sometimes makes the murderer wait until the music stops before putting the corpse in the trunk. If that happens, this assert no longer seems to occur (and I tried it about 20 times). Unfortunately, when running in gdb, this timing problem _always_ seems to be happen.

Attaching the debugger only after this scene gets me this backtrace when clicking through the dialog rapidly:

this also happens right during the sierra logo intro, when you press esc and fast click. (thx to pgr for finding this)

The assertion should be fixed starting with revision 52561. Please try the next daily build to check whether it works for you.
