Not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but here goes.
Had a nice game going, although got stuck on one tough mission that had my red die and yellow die locked.. sucks needing all 6 green dice and needing them all to roll perfectly through 5 ordered tasks. But hey.. it got done.. eventually..
But after that, my Gloria Goldberg character went to do the Hallway on Fire mission. It had two tasks to do, and I think it was a -1 stamina penalty for each terror die rolled. Anyhow, she was down to two stamina when she started this mission. Task one, success, but -1 stamina. Task two, success, but -1 stamina. So up popped the death screen for poor old Gloria, then you hear (but not see) the rewards coming out, and the game froze.. didn't crash per se, but was just stuck at the screen where the hmm.. I don't know the best way to put it.. the grey doors close... (from the top and bottom of the screen). SO I went back to the desktop.
I went back into the game, and it was still stuck. Then I shut down the Elder Sign task, and reloaded the game up. It asked me if I wished to continue, YES I said.. Hmm.. Gloria was back alive with her two stamina, the Hallway on Fire mission was nowhere to be seen, and it looked like Gloria had the rewards from the mission...
