Yes, it should be safe to teleport from non-generic screens.

The crashes in the dragon battle are a result of a sound issue of some sort. Specifically, the sound heard when the dragon breathes his flame. I've heard that disabling the sound during the last part of the battle bypasses it. For me, that didn't work, but pressing escape as soon as the dragon starts breathing fire and letting the animation pass did work. Unfortunately, that also borders on cheating since it severely limits the damage done by its flame breath.

I liked it because I actually like regular RPG games, but it was a bad thing that they lowered a lot the "adventure game" part of the Quest for Glory series.

Well, I did play it again, as a Paladin. I'm again stuck at the end, this time right before the coronation ceremony. With Win95 compatibility, the dragon-defeat movie won't play. So after I defeat the the dragon, nothing happens. I can walk around, but no one does anything and the game doesn't continue. Without the compatibility option, the movie plays, Erana says a few lines, and the game crashes. So frustrating.

One other thing about this play-through: the Paladin buff sounds are really, really annoying. Having a major buff to your strength is a good thing, especially since stamina is essentially free, so the buff is always maintainable. The incessant droning associated with it, however, is awful.

I found QFG5 to actually be very fun, I thought the graphics weren't that bad and the voice acting was ok.

Although it can't compete with 2 or 4, it's still a good game worth trying and has a worthy ending. (even tho I could never complete it because of the Cinematics not working! >: )

That was the only downfall for me.
