My friend and I were playing the multiplayer. We traveled to Nashkel, then returned to Beregost to rest. This was after about two and a half hours of gameplay. I was hosting the game. He talked to the innkeeper and rented a room for us to rest. He had done this same thing a few times before. When resting, a bit of narration popped up. It was talking about the dreams I had about Gorion dying in the woods, then about how I resolved to become incredibly powerful. I let the narration play, then hit "Done". The game froze up (although I could still move the mouse cursor), then the cursor turned to the Windows loading cursor. My friend said that he had been kicked from the server. When I checked Task Manager, Baldur's Gate wasn't responding. I killed the process and restarted.
We tried again, following the same procedure described above. Instead of letting the narration finish, I hit "Done" immediately. The game crashed again.
We tried a third time. We did everything the same as before, except I let the narration finish, then waited for the narration to exit. Rather than going back to the game view, however, Baldur's Gate crashed again.
I expected the game to not crash after that narration.
I haven't tested this in singleplayer, just multiplayer.

om with this same text and the crash dumps. I'm hoping someone has a workaround, though.
