Sorry, still crashes.
As I recall, OpenAL dlls are not too big (I have a game on my HDD which utilizes OpenAL and works), so might want to include them.

Kernel.log:

e3: OpenAL drivers could not be found.

Hmm, someone else who had a similar crash due to the game not finding OpenAL says it works now, so this might be a different problem.  Could you try a couple things?

1) download http://exong.net/RL/CDF.zip and replace CDF.dll with the new one.  I suspect that OpenAL might not actually be the problem, though, since kernel.log does contain the error info, which means that the exception is not unhandled.

2) run Event Viewer (should show up if you type “Event Viewer” into the start menu search bar), and navigate to ‘Windows Logs’ -> ‘Application’. Look for an error with the ‘Source’ being “.NET runtime” around the time you ran it. In the details tab, there should be some EventData listed; just copy and paste that here.

I tried replacing the dll. No dice. I moved the app to another folder to avoid diacritics in path. No dice.

Oh.  It looks like the problem is Monogame throwing the exception within a finalizer.  I'll put up an updated build of Monogame when I get the chance.

Nice, more and more elements seem to be falling into place alongside enhancements across the board in various ways.   8)

VERY pleased to report that the NVorbis/Monogame fixes stopped the crashes. I can enjoy the game at last!

You can get away with thieving when using "goto" command from inside a shop to the wilderness - upon returning to the city nobody cares. Then you can also continue thieving anywhere with impunity without using "goto" (the goto itself seems to be broken after this - doesn`t always register or only goes partially towards the destination)

Well, that's an interesting bug.  It looks like stealing didn't update the AI state for the area if you're not in that area at the time, which is what happens in this case.  So in fact the town was hostile, but the AI still thought it was an area where it doesn't need to care about the possibility of enemies.  So goto would stop because you would spot an enemy, even though they wouldn't deliberately attack you.

Thanks for the report!  Fixed for next release. (Disallowed use of 'goto' when carrying unpaid items.)

Edit:  I'll have to do something about shops/stealing at some point anyway, since one game I found enough good items and artifacts (some of which would have cost >300k gold) that I just equipped them all and was able to defeat the whole town.

Nice looking update---what's the story behind the new name?   8)  Not a common sort of one with up until recently only a game called Numen Heroes (IIRC) and the whole Numenera/Torment thing upcoming, heh.

I second that question. I feel odd to suddenly have to switch to thinking of it by a different name.

I didn't know about the other cases; interesting!

Here's the reasons I chose the new name:

1. Literal meaning fits what the game is about (old one sort of did, but not really; the new one is much better, at least once you know what the Latin part means.)
2. Easy to say and spell (and quite likely, remember)
3. Relatively short
4. Not even close to generic

I'd say the most important reason for changing at all is simply that as I fleshed out the lore/thematic setting of the game, I found the previous name to be inadequate.

Good deal---I reckon you will definitely get some spillover from folks looks into the Numenera cRPG and/or the P&P system tied to it in Google and whatnot, so that's a fine impetus to keep at the fine work anew on it going forward so they linger in surprise and get around to Monte Cook and the Torment team's efforts later.   :P
