In Avernum 2, I create a party and click done.  I go to the next screen that describes the Empire invading and click the mouse.  I then go the next screen ("The power of the Empire completely dwarfed . . .") and click the mouse when the screen says click the mouse to continue.  Then I get the rolling cursor (used to be the rotating hourglass).  There's no error - the game just hangs.

The OS is Windows 8.1.  Please tell me if there's other information you need.

Uninstall and reinstall from a fresh download.
Let us know if the issue persists after that

This was the problem.  I was installing off my old, old, old Avernum 2 CD.  When I install from the new Avernum 2 - Crystal Souls demo link, it works fine.  The graphics and skill tree are so much better that I'll just go with the new version and plunk down the $20 for the full version.

Thanks!

Err, no, they won't.  The Avernum 2 CD has Avernum 2 on it, not Avernum 2: Crystal Souls.

My bad. I skimmed instead of reading fully. I thought OP meant a newer version of the original.

Nope, I meant from the current version of the old Avernum 2. Most problems tend to sort themselves out with a fresh install.
Then if whatever serial you have doesn't work to register the game, email support with your info
