The portal leads to what seems to be an abandoned structure hidden away in a long-forgotten pocket dimension. Who or what created it, where did they go, and now that you're here, how are you going to get out?

Found what should be a fix. Please let me know if the new version takes care of your crashing issues.

I am on a mac. Perhaps it's a mac only problem.

The room works perfectly for me, so I'm having a tough time tracking down what's causing this issue. As soon as I do, I'll be posting a fix. Thank you for the error reports.

I get the error when (presumably) a teleporter would teleport me to the back of the room. I can navigate through the room fine with the clue provided for the puzzle.
