I'm not sure if this is specific to Demon War or if it's also a problem in the regular version.

I started a trickster/reaver and picked the Lost advanced option. To go along with that, I called him WhereAmI? . I got him to level 7 or 8 before I had to save and exit.

I eventually came back, started the game, clicked Resume, and the game promptly died. I tried again, clicked Play, and WhereAmI? wasn't on the list. I did a search of my entire hard drive (for anything containing "where") and found no trace of him.

I suspect it's the ? in the name that caused the problem. Maybe update the input filter?

EDIT:
I've seen the game crash on a corrupt character file and a non-existent character file. Looks like you need to check for errors on fileOpen.

I'm sorry, but the irony in that story is just classic.

Oops. I completely missed that angle. Maybe I should stop doing self-fulfilling prophecies? :)
