Can't Load Savegames

So the title says it all, but I'll explain it with detailes.

So, I was at the last level(Ekhard's Lab) and I was at the cage where I had to take the glass vessel. Since I drowned several times in the hot water, I loaded and loaded the save from the begining in the cage. I died for the third time and I quickly opened the main menu, selected Load Game and the game crashed! In an Application Error window it showed me this message:
Build Aug 6 2003 11:12:23

The Following Error has occured

Generic Game Error

ASSERTION: 'i < NUM_OPTIONS' at C:\projects\tomb raider\Game\frontend\menu.c(227)


So I ran the game again and selected Load Game from the Start Menu, but again, the game crashed :(
The only way I can load a save game is when I start a new game and die. I also can't make savegames from the menu, only with F5.
Does anybody know a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance :comp

Don't know that one, so I'll ask you the same I ask everyone playing AoD: Have you tried reinstalling the game? Did you install the latest patch? If you installed the patch, do you use save games created with an older version of the game (which won't work)?

No I haven't tried to reinstall the game. I have installed the latest patch.
And I think I may be using old save games - I am using Stella's savegames from tombraiders.net, but the game was crashing before I had installed the patch.

These might be two independent problems.

1. the game crashes when you play it without the patch
2. the patched game crashes when you use savegames from an unpatched version.

Eidos offered savegames for the patched version, maybe you can use them to get started again?!
