Rewinding to Chapter 5 and making a different choice crashes game
note: several others have found variants of this same bug -"julchen80", "leon_xiv", "beuh_tone", "DjangoZom", "Burana", "bradtherad" (many on mac -- I'm on PC)
See further discussion at these three threads:
Windows 7 64bit, steam version of game
1) Need an existing save game where you gave girl in room 9 the gun, that has progressed further to a later chapter (saved at chapter 6 or later)
2) REWIND to Chapter 5 girl in room 9 (need a later save that requires rewind to reach this!)
3) on replay instead choose to not give her the gun.
4) crashes shortly thereafter. (event viewer log below)
Workaround: instead rewind further to chapter 4. Choosing to not give her the gun works fine and doesn't cause crash.
Note: I have to disable internet in order to play, unsure whether this affects this bug.
I didn't test other permutations like rewinding and making the same choice as before, it's possible this also causes crash on this scene.
I had a lot of success with rewinds on other chapters.
Ever since I found the "disable internet" workaround to getting the game working, I've had no crashes other than this one.
