My somewhat educated guess would place the bug related to an external library. When I first played the game 12+ years ago on Windows XP, I've completed the mission hassle-free. Ever since Windows Vista (or 7?) and now even on Linux with Wine, the bug occurred reliably, with the EoC executable being identical.

Don't waste your time trying to debug an almost two decade old application, it would be much better spent on your remake ;)

XD well, I haven't actually even fired up the game in quite a long time. When I'm not at school or playing World of Warships or KSP, I do spend my time on the remake ;)

Very little about the game is not known to me. Any questions you got, throw them at me. :)

Hello,
sorry for the late reply. Damn real life. :P

I will add a paragraph to the FAQ, if you write something up. ;)

So I finally got to "writing it up". I don't know if you need HTML, so I just copy'n'pasted from the FAQ to hopefully make your life easier:
<h5 class="g">Act 2 - Mission 8 Corporate Holdings</h5>
<div class="posts"><strong>Q. My game crashes during this mission. What to do?</strong></div>
<div class="answer">A. Completing this mission is optional to the progression of Act 2.
There are no known side-effects to not completing this mission.</div>
<div class="answer">Alternatively, you can use the following workaround to complete the mission while avoiding the crash: Jump from Pestur to Dadgda Alpha Prime to trigger the mission, then immediately jump back to Pestur without destroying the mines. Wait in Pestur for the mission to complete (the "destroy mines" objective will fail, but the remaining objectives will complete and Jarvis will thank you).</div>

I also wrote a small reference for the walkthrough:
<b>Mission 8 Corporate Holdings</b>
<p><b>Note:</b> This mission may crash EoC. See the FAQ for a <a href="/documents/help/faq/faq-acts-2-3">workaround</a>.</p>
<p><b>Activation Info:</b> System: Dagda Prerequisites: + You need to must complete Act Two Mission 18 to trigger this mission.</p>
