Looking around the code a bit I saw that I already had a check that disables HW bump mapping if the GPU doesn't have NPOT support, because it's required for certain things regardless of the source textures. I had forgotten about that.

However the check allowed HW bump to remain enabled for cards with only limited NPOT support, which isn't enough. I'll probably change that, or at least add a note that the option can/will cause crashing on such GPUs.

Hmmm, I think this is the first time I've heard of Trespasser crashing because of that...

Maybe because no one has run it on a GPU with limited NPOT, or perhaps depending on driver it doesn't always end up with a crash even when it's doing something it isn't supposed to.

Did some some debugging and more looking, and it might be that particular combo of a NPOT swp bumpmap and limited NPOT GPU. I added what I hope is a fix for that situation and posted v1.07c.

Melber if you still happen to read this. If you feel like it you can download 1.07c and re-enable HW bumpmapping to see if that works for you. If you happen to have the level 2 save, where you know it crashed, it would be even better if you could test it there.
