I can reproduce that from the savegame:

parameter 0: 0000:0005 (integer), should be null, integer parameter 1: 033d:01a0 (reference, invalid), may be any (optional) (more may follow) [VM] kMemory[72]: signature mismatch via method ::export 6 (room 440, script 999, localCall 0xffffffff)!

I haven't investigated why that patch isn't working here yet.

This should be fixed now; thanks for the report.

This was a script bug in the original game, which we have fixed in the past, but it turns out that the GOG version of QfG3 (which I assume you're using), has a slightly different version of the faulty script.

If you're not using the GOG version, could you let us know which version you do have?

I was using the GOG version. Just a heads up QFG3 is nearly unplayable in 1.8 builds currently on certain Rooms just checking the stat screen causes the game to crash. I can think of on in particular In simbani Village going to the bridge and then opening the stats screen then clicking to leave will indeed cause a crash. I have a list of more but this is not the time nor place to discuss. and i am a little to busy to look into the scumm code to see what is exactly causing the errors against my console output.

I also get that crash in the Simbani bridge room, from a piece of code that checks for script bugs. This code is disabled in our release builds, which is why you're not getting this crash in 1.7. If you can submit a new bug report with this list, we can try to fix or work around these script bugs in QfG3.

mkiewitz and I have investigated this a bit more: it turns out that GOG has released QfG3 with a set of unofficial patches (by NRS), and these patches introduce a number of issues.

Most of our own testing was with the official Sierra release of Quest for Glory 3 with only official patches, so we hadn't looked at these before.

We would really appreciate your list of crash locations to be able to properly address them.
