I have been playing for a couple of months without incident.
Yesterday I played in morning; then when clicked on in the afternoon I recieved this windows message message: DepthsOfPeril has encountered a problem and needs to close.
If I try to run game from the start up menu rather than the icon I get Couldn't find Datatbase dbl.
I have uninstalled and re-installed 3 times. I have also tried the patches.
If I try to repair - it runs almost to the end and then asks me to load in the disc already in the player.
I have been all the way through the forum threads and cannot find an answer!
I am obviously using a retail version rather than a download.

Sounds like a DRM problem. I think that there's some way of fiddling with the CD drive settings to make it recognize the disks properly.

my problem is almost the same. it also says that windows encontered an error something..., send/don't send, then closes. i just downloaded this game recently and only using a demo for now. it happens when i try to select the "play game" and i already have a saved game. when i reinstall it, erasing the saved game, i can play it nicely again but then the same problem happens when i try to resume it or select play game with a saved file. i liked the game but i dont want to play frm the start everytime. please fix it immediately and tell me what to do with it. i'm getting really bored.

if you'd like me to send a printscreen or something, i'd b glad to help. i just to play it asap. I really liked this game. diablo but with some covenant twists.:-D

Sorry I missed this post somehow.

It sounds like it's just not allowed to save for some reason. Are you low on hard drive space or running under a user that doesn't have permissions to write to the directory where the game is installed?

When you save/exit do some files for your character show up in the User/chars directory and are they bigger than 0KB?
