Ok, I've been playing CS a few days, with the latest patch and all. And now I've come across my first CTD, and unfortunately it's a real mainquest breaker!

Spoiler: Show
When following Fang's trail, I get to the flea market in Garbage. As I enter the door that leads to the basement, the cutscene is triggered where the bandits rob me. Anyway, it all goes well to the point where I get the message of the amount of money lost (those normal pda messages). At that point the game freezes and crashes to desktop. I also have the error log, but unfortunately can't find any useful info from it.

So, at the moment, I'm just freeroaming and trying to avoid the mainquest, since I can't get past this point.:( Anyone else having the same issue? Or anyone figured out a fix for it?

Also, another small issue: Somehow I suddenly lost the contacts counter in the minimap. It just disappeared. I can still hear the normal "new contact" and "contact lost" sounds, but the numbers have disappeared. Weird. Fortunately I've gotten used to playing without that info in SoC OL 2.2, so I guess I can live without that info. Just pointing out a glitch. :)

what patch are you using, as ive yet to experince a CTD on the main quest. most of my CTDs ( which are extremely low) are on side/optional quests.

Well, I guess it's the latest one, 1.5.04. Also, I did some weapon tweaks and replaced a few sounds, but I'm pretty positive that those CAN'T be the reason for the CTD.

Also, one other oddity I discovered: Is it really so, that if I install an upgrade to a suit, then buy/find another suit and want to add the same upgrade to that, it's not possible ever again?

Cause I got the CS-3 suit as a reward, installed Nightvision to it and now I have another suit and when I try to install the NV to that, it says "upgrade installed", but I can't use NV. So, I install the upgrade only once, then ALL of the mechanics from ALL factions are out of that specific upgrade? Forever? Am I being a complete idiot and missing something here, or is this a real bug/limitation?
