Create couple saves with original 1.06 gamex86.dll and try to load them with modified gamex86.dll from heretic2_106_glide_ws.zip. I want to know if at least one of them loads properly.

I'll take a look...

Yeah, most likely they asked you to save an entire list of events from "Application" category to .evtx file.

First test: I did a clean installation, installed the game, installed patch 1.06, but it didn't even start the game. So,

-I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, installed the patch 1.06, replaced the files of your latest update, without gamex86.dll.
-Started the game, changed resolution to 1920x1080, made four saves.
-Exited the game.
-Restarted the game, reload, and with all four saves, it loads perfectly, but once the game starts after the load, after a few seconds of playing, the game freezes and hangs.

Second test: I just remembered that in order to start Heretic II with the 1.06 patch, It's needed to start the tutorial first, and then a new game. I did so, and performed the exact same tests I said above, but this time I didn't change the resolution, I just left it in 640x480. The results were the same, all saves load correctly, but once the game started, after a few seconds it froze and hanged. The first time, though, the sounds, instead of stopping, they kind of got stuck in a loop, where they repeated themselves, until I killed the process of the game in the task manager.

Are these the test you need?

I just had a problem with Diablo III, so I did another ticket, and then found out which file was: It was a file generated by the MSInfo tool. Would this help you?

If you replaced gamex86.dll from .zip after exiting the game:

-I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, installed the patch 1.06, replaced the files of your latest update, without gamex86.dll.
-Started the game, changed resolution to 1920x1080, made four saves.
-Exited the game.
-Replaced gamex86.dll from heretic2_106_glide_ws.zip
-Restarted the game, reload, and with all four saves, it loads perfectly, but once the game starts after the load, after a few seconds of playing, the game freezes and hangs.

then yes. I assume you did since the game freezed after few seconds...

Right now I don't need it, but I'll let you know if I do.

Yes, sorry, I forgot to write down the step you highlighted in red. That's exactly what I did, just the way you quoted, in both tests, using the latest zip you posted, which was the third, I believe.
