I'm a PC gamer gal who creates her own mods and collects mods that have been created by others. That is all.
The same thing happened to me. Random freezes at random time intervals. I can't really say what solved it for me because it finally stopped after I got into the game awhile, but I was trying everything. I finally set it on compatibility mode for Windows Vista (I am using Windows 7), in administrator mode, with the Windows Vista "fix" dll that's floating around. Hope the info helps.
That's a relief. Thanks for responding.
Is it necessary to start a new game in order to update the mod from 1.8.3? I literally reinstalled my KOTR2 and added this mod the day before you updated (and not due to a sale on GOG.. this is my old CD copy from years ago). What an unfortunate coincidence. *facepalm*
