Solved: 2 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago RE: Game crashes when entering in the mine (French translation)

I have passed Overture in English language because - as I thought - crashes were caused by an unofficial translation. Now I'm playing Black Plague (bought whole collection) with translation taken from Windows version, however I encountered same problem. After reading this thread I have (as I'm thinking right now) found a working solution.

The solution is simple: game saves can't have native characters in their file names.

As you can see, saves are stored here under real level names:
/home/user/.frictionalgames/Penumbra/Black Plague/save/auto

So the only thing you have to change is PenumbraCollection/BlackPlague/config/[language_name].lang, section <CATEGORY Name="SaveNames">. Just remove any native characters, not much work with that...

Should work probably for other Penumbra games. I hope this will solve all problems with crashes on translated version but who knows. I just discovered it right now and sharing with you. Enjoy ;]
Give me some feedback if this works, please :]
