0003944: Complete crash when using K (look around) on dropped megabeast items
My game will crash completely whenever I attempt to use the K (look around) option on what I can assume is a dropped item by a megabeast/titan. After killing the random beast Im unable to view the items its dropped using the look around button because it crashes instantly.

This happens with all megabeasts ive encountered so not just limited to one.

I havent tried claiming the items through the claim designation d - b - c because I dont want to claim them and put them in stockpiles for it to still crash and cause problems in the future when going through my stockpiles.

The game is obviously still playable by just not using K on the items, butwould be nice to be able to claim them.

Doesnt crash when using Q or V over the objects.

If you need any more info ill try my best to help.
Have reproduced a few times using saves, but still happens every time.
No tags attached.

Are you using a truetype font?

It seems that I was, after looking at the link to that other bug report I disabled Truetype (I am using ironhands graphic set) and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Thanks for looking at this :)

Seems that this case is closed
