Hello everyone.

First of all, let me apologize for yet another TESII Daggerfall post.

Secondly, I am using DOSBoz 0.74 on
Mac OSX 10.6.6
2 ghz dual core
4 gb ram

It is the patched downloaded version of Daggerfall on the Bethesa web site.

I'm able to run the game fine. The problem is that I get the following message sometimes when I save :

Daggerfall has encountered an internal error at 1000.
The error reported was: Failed internal check 14.
Exiting...

Now this only happens when I save. At first, I thought it was only when I exited a certain location or dialogue and didn't move around (save before and after quest, for example). But it seems to happen regardless now. As a matter of fact, I've tried it four times just now and the crash happened.

Indeed, i load my game in a fighter's guild, walk out, save; crash
Load game and go to another store, save; crash
Load game go outside and move around a little and save; crash
Load game, get a quest, save; crash.

I've read all the FAQs on how to mount the game, get it to run, and it has been running more or less well for a few days now. But it's to the point where I'm (ironically!) afraid to save by fear of it crashing...!

Any ideas?

Here is the .conf on dosbox.

It seems to do it after I have a transaction with someone at the moment.

I have the exact same problem, running daggerfall downloaded straight from the website, installed and patched correct as far as I can tell. Running on mac as well. Have you figured anything out yet? Ive searched for this problem in other forums too and have found nothing.

Did you follow official instructions from Bethesda (which are apparently hard to find these days)?

Attached to this post for posterity.

Also best ask on the Bethesda forums for better instructions than Bethesda's shitty ones instead of here.
