Hi, not sure where to post this...

Playing GK2 and save as I go along and my 'gk2-cd' saves grow in size and are now over 1MB each.

Also, the game crashes and is uncompletable. It's understood GK2 isn't supported, however I would like to report the game crashes on point 550 (have all 545 points that come before) following this walkthrough. Wondering if anyone completed this game on a prior version.

Fixed in 6338496dffd3e1dc07fa4cd17654a2daa95f60fe.

You will need to create new save games to address this problem, as the leaked bitmap memory was designated ineligible for garbage collection, so will never be collected.
