Is Dezowave still working on LA? The changelog hasn't been updated in well over 2 months, and they've only one game designer left. No news on their moddb page either.

---QUOTATION---
Lost Alpha Director's Cut Crashing at Dark Valley

I'm doing the mission to get into the lab. I retrieved the documents from the safe and am on my way to the entrance to lab. The game constantly crashes to desktop. If I stand around doing nothing, it crashes. If I walk around, it crashes. Jump up and down, etc. This has corrupted my recent saves from after getting the documents and I just don't know what to do. Any ideas?

The game also crashes if I try to quick-load sometimes, but it doesn't always happen.

This is one of the more annoying aspects of DC. Inexplicable CTDs, often without crash reports.

But don't worry, some of the 'dev team' have "played it a bit" and 'hope that it works '

My only suggestion would be to try replaying the level. Try subverting it, by going to the X18 before you 'officially' know the doorcode (buy a downloads module off a trader if you need to)

Alternatives might be to reload your crashy save and enter the "Xray Debug prompt" , it's usually accessed with the key directly above your TAB key, just to see what the fork is happening just prior to the CTD.

Frankly, you're lucky. I had this bug on loading the autosave to enter Countryside in one game, and it was PERMANENTLY unloadable. (Replaying through Radar didn't help either)
I also get an "expression not found" CTD at the OSO victory ending (Dez's workarounds don't work to solve it either) This scene USED TO WORK but now doesn't.

I'm suspecting that this game installation suffers from "software rot" the more it gets played.
