Depossess/master form crash fix

A fix for a crash in the depossession/form mastery window that was supposed to be in patch 1.2.1.2 did not make it in due to Eniko messing up. This has been fixed in the latest version (1.2.2). Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Changes in v1.2.2:
(savegame compatible with previous version)

Reviews

“As a personal experience that allows you to hold the keys to your own entertainment, this game should have a wide appeal to both traditionalist and newcomers to the genre.”
8/10 – Old Man Mordaith

“A unique combat possession mechanic and a plethora of ways to combine and utilize monster abilities make MidBoss an exceptionally entertaining dungeon crawler.”
8/10 – Scholarly Gamers

“Like Dredmor, MidBoss is extremely accessible with a clear and simple interface and the tutorial makes it a breeze to get into. […] Honestly, the game has so much going for it, I'm in a mess on how to actually write about it.”

About This Game

Kill your enemies, possess their bodies, and take their abilities as your own in this turn-based procedurally generated death labyrinth. You play as the imp, the weakest monster in the dungeon. Tired of being bullied by the other monsters, you set off with your sidekick Mid to descend to the deepest levels of the dungeon, defeat the final boss, and take his place.

MidBoss is easy to pick up and play if you're new to the genre of traditional roguelikes (turn-based strategic RPGs with permadeath), but still has the depth and complexity that veterans expect and enjoy.
