End of Chapter 3, Water Lock, Opening Animation FreezesChoob11/25/2008 - 15:13

Hi, I've been playing World of Goo very well until the Water Lock level at the end of Chapter 3 (Cog in the Machine).  I finished out the upper route, and now I have to finish the lower route.

When I click to start the Water Lock level, the opening animation plays fine for about one second.  Then, animation and sound stops.  However, if I click, the sound continues, but the animation doesn't.  I can hear water in the background.  The picture stays the same and I can't do anything else.

Ctrl+Alt+Dlt-ing out of the program works well enough.  The first time this happened, I did get a fatal error message.  (I didn't write down the details of it, though.)

Thanks for the help!

Hm, just a weird thing.  Works all of a sudden today..  Oh well.

I had a similar freeze right on the loading screen of the last Chap.3 level. Got an error message as well, could leave with Ctrl+Alt+Del. Worked next time I restarted the game. Till now, the one and only crash I've ever had.

BTW, here's the crash log. No antivirus program or internet connection was present at that time.
