Hello! You aren't the only one with this problem but sadly we haven't been able to track down the cause: this might be somehow related on how wintermute-engine handles memory allocation for sprites. There's a report on it on the technical support sub-forum: one user got it working by loading the autosave and making other chores first than finding Tully outside. BUT if this won't help, I could send you a save file where the bones are destroyed.

I can confirm this. Burn bones before finding Tully and there will be no crash.

I know its an old thread, but I have tried all options, game still crashes when I attempt to burn the bones no matter what I do or dont do beforehand. I like the game and want to finish it, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

So I will have to start over again from a very old save game as well. That's kind of frustrating :sadelf:

At least on my setup I noticed the following (starting from the auto-save)

- The game can freeze at both bone-burning parts
- Al's room before first burning appears to prevent the first freeze
- 2nd burning before finding body appears to prevent the 2nd freeze

Any way you could send me a saved game before finding the body?? I don't have any previous saves and I already found the body, therefore the game crashes every time I try to burn the body (second time).

Here is a saved game you can download:
https://jmp.sh/qPtix77

Place it in the Saved Games folder of your Windows profile, into the Alpha Polaris folder. Rename it first if you don't want to overwrite the game already saved in your first slot. No need to restart the game, just go to the main menu to load it. (This file should not prevent you from achieving Everyday I’m Calculatin’ and Parser Hero.)

In case it doesn't work for you, here is a game saved from after burning the bones:

I'm reaally late to this, but when I disabled the shades there was no crash. It crashed whenI tried to burn with gasoline before.
