Good thing that you got past the problem with no further complications.
Yes, I was pleased to find a solution (thanks to whoever it was who'd posted that solution...
) . I couldn't play the game at first because I had display problems with my Nvidia graphics card, and I searched high and low for days until I found the solution to that and was glad I'd got it going. It was very frustrating to then be "paralysed" - luckily I'd saved before that spot and could go back to get past it.
