Wierd.... DSLooker tries to look at the new character's save file then crashes, yet works when looking at the old character.lpl file. yet it still get replaces with the new one that is generated everytime.
 lol, after some messing around with the compatibility settings, found if you put it to 98/me it still has the DRM and asks for the disk. also found for me if i put it to xp I get the mouse clicks which i do not get with no compatibility (May be different for other people) [/edit]
[edit ver=2] just replaced the exe with the original game version and the save files and the character files load as usual so it must be in the gog's version of the .exe file. I do not understand how your version is not affected and loads ok????[/edit]
