I'm using the GOG version of PoE. When transitioning from the starting area just after the storm occurs the game crashes after the short text event insofar as the loading cursor appears and nothing more happens (you can still move it around on the black screen though). After this point clicking anywhere in the game brings up a message that PoE.exe is non-responsive. I can repeat the issue and can't seem to create a save file when in the starting area (clicking on save does nothing). Is there much I can do other than wait for a patch? Will an error log have been generated for this event and if so where can I find it to post here? I've looked in the PoE folder and can't seem to find anything.
