(Note: your forum area for bugs is listed for KQ1 & KQ2 only, and all reports for this game appear to be here, so I follow suit).

After the wizard ate the poisoned porridge, he complains and moves to the left of the room, then the hero moves a bit towards him and talk, including the first 2 verses of the spell.
Then NOTHING else happen: the game is stuck at this point, the cursor in 'cat face mode', even after trying to wait some time while reading a book.
The timer keeps going (so it is probably not a freeze), but no further game interaction is possible. The ESC key does not exit the 'cat face mode' as it did when playing the lute.

The only way to exit is forcibly aborting the game with Alt-F4

Configuration: your latest version downloaded a few days ago, on a Windows 7 laptop.

Do you have either the music or speech volume volume slider at the very bottom setting (on silent) when this scene plays?

If not, see if muting the sliders works. And if so, see if raising the sliders does the trick.

You could also try running winsetup.exe and see whether selecting a different sound driver works.

The scene isn't skippable like others in the game because it's an important event. But it shouldn't freeze and I don't think anyone else has ever reported a freeze here. Since you mentioned a laptop, it could also be something similar to the issue mentioned here:

I have the music silent, I hate music in games and that is always the first thing I do in any game.
The rest is on default settings.

The issue reported on that post is about a mouse issue, my mouse work fine.
Then it talks about an issue with 32 bits color under Windows 7, which I have no way to test on this laptop: contrarily to a desktop, there is NO OPTION anywhere to change the bits depth (which is visibly high graphics), only the screen resolution (I checked every possible option in menu in the control panel).
In a nutshell, I am probably in a better than 32 bits color mode, and cannot switch to a 32 bits color mode.

Does turning up the music slider temporarily allow you to bypass the freeze?

I will try that next time I can start the game (not possible just now).

Even pushing the music setting to the maximum does not change anything.
It is the same save I just uploaded for my other post.
