broken savefile 4.0.4

Hi all

I saved just after killing Atlas and my game crashed (Win7). I cannot load my character (cannot read monster 131 - broken savefile).

Could someone be so kind to have a look at it and hopefully fix it?
I found Ringil for the first time with this character

thanks a lot in advance !

This should be a fixed savefile.

There is an occasional crash bug with mimics which I don't fully understand. It's not ideal, but things you can do to avoid it include only quitting the game when in town, and making frequent backups of your savefile.

Thanks a lot for the quick fix!

I felt that backuping save files had a flavor of cheating, as you can restore a dead character. But now that I experienced this nasty crash, I might change my mind.
