Description

Version: 1.6.0
Issue: I open my save file, and the following message comes up:

Console is ready
Debugger started, type 'exit' to return to the game.
Type 'help' to see a little list of commands and variables.
ERROR: Invalid arithmetic operation (params: 0005:0636 and 0000:0000) from method
Game::replay (room 71, script fffffff)!

Language: English
Game Version: Floppy. (Downloaded RAR files from the internet)

Unfortunately, I'm not sure where my save file is. But I hope this is enough info to fix the problem.

"(Downloaded RAR files from the internet)"...

We do not provide support for anyone obtaining games in this way. See:

Apart from the legal issues, it is highly likely that this version has modified or corrupted datafiles.

You can buy a copy of KQ4 inexpensively from many sources including GOG:

The reason I'm using ones downloaded from the internet is because the one I bought (stored on a disk after I put it there from a floppy) wasn't working with DOSbox. Thinking my files were corrupt, I downloaded some from the web. I just checked though, and they're exactly the same. Is that ok?
