running version 1.7.b I can't reproduce your bug on my end.

can you give me some more details on what you did and what happened afterwards, please? also did the game print an error message on your end?

It's not at the point you captured. It's later, after I complete the Secret City area and try to go back with the teleport.
At least tell me - would I have been teleported back to the maze, or somewhere outdoors?
And how to get the error message from the game? After the game froze, I just had to close the window manually.

this is how things should look like.

are you sure you're using version 1.7.b? and is this a stable freeze on your end?

(the game will display an error message automatically. you don't have to do or activate anything to make that happen)

Yes. The teleport engages and then freezes. The music is still playing, but the game doesn't react to any keys, including escape.
OK, but if I anyway will be back to the outside, maybe I'll just use the "no clipping" cheat (whatever "clipping" is)?
I really have no idea how to see the error message. I'm playing in a window and there's no message, just music on and frozen image...

the game either crashes and displays an error message or freezes without any output

What levels did you play/finish other than the Secret City, Nowhere Girl? That might contribute to the teleporter freezing bug. Last time I looked through the discussion, I think someone said that it's the Ice City (level where you get the vacuum cleaner) that makes the teleporter freeze the game. I don't know if it's a matter of simply playing Ice City or completing it, though.
