I am unable to reproduce the bug.

I tried looking at both force field generators and it works for me. It works with the latest build and the official 1.7 build works too.

Can you please tell me, if there is a file called 45.scr in your Space Quest 1 directory and if so how large that file is.

And which Collector's Edition do you own? Is it one of the collections mentioned on this page?

The collection is Roger Wilco Unclogged, there's no file called 45.scr. If it can help, please try to look at the generators more than once, I've just tried, and sometimes the game crashes at the 3rd attempt.

Thanks. I was able to reproduce it. And we figured out, that the bug always occurs when you click on the upper part of the force field generator.

The script code, that triggers this error, is really weird and I just found out that the original Sierra interpreter bombs out with the common "Oops, you did something that we didn't expect" as well.

Will write a script patch for this issue.
