I'm having a game ending issue in the hospital level. I'm up to the part where you go check the entrance and the three monsters spawn. The issue is that the game locks up immediately after I walk towards one of the blue markers after defeating the last monster. Not only does it lock up the game completely but it freezes my computer, forcing me to restart it.
Any ideas on how to get around/fix this bug? I have the latest GOG patch installed and the game is generally running smoothly.
I had the exact same recurring problem a week ago. What apparently solved it was that I simply saved the game anew in the room next to the MRI scanner (subsequently reloading it if I recall correctly) before entering the hospital lobby. I may also have saved it at the reception but I'm not entirely sure.
Unfortunately, I'm now inconvenienced by a recurring crash to Windows right at the very end of the conversation with Emily in the parking lot (episode 3, chapter 14). So far I haven't been able to solve the problem but I might try running the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode (though it really shouldn't be necessary).
EDIT: Problem solved! I simply smoked for a bit (half an hour) before leaving through the hotel entrance and voila, not even a single crash! Actually, I've tried this a few times previously and don't ask me why but it seems to make a difference.
