6. dont enter a character screen, or your cursor will start to live a life of its own.

That's not a bug but a feature, dyze. ;)

Yeah - you can get out of the screen though, by cycling through the UI elements using the tab key and pressing enter when you reach the exit button. That's not going to help much when you are trying to update your skills, but is a work around for the moment. Hopefully Cleve will make an update.

Apart from compatibility problems the underlying game appears to be working well in the early demo maps that I've tried.

It is not nearly as great as the game you have made….oh wait.

Administrator + WinXP SP2 ( XP SP3 or Win95 or …) did not help me on Win7 x64. I still get the following crash "dmime.dll!CPerformance:: PlaySegment()".

I did try disabling sound via the device driver and still the crash occurs. Don't know why NVidia has a sound adapter but disabled that as well and no go. Disabling all devices in mmsys.cpl did seem to make the game stable for much longer but it still crashed entering or leaving combat.

Looks like it has some stability issues on Windows 7 but man I really like the demo, looking forward to when the bugs get ironed out.

And Vista.

As I understand it from Cleve's comments the windows port is a hack based on trying to make windows work like DOS, whilst trying to circumvent inconvenient threading and the message queue. What he really needs to do is go buy a copy of Petzold and then sit down and write a proper port that doesn't try to grab control of the OS.
