Unless it's hard-coded, let's try to find the cause of the loading crash.
What you can do!
1. post your saved file as an attachment
2. what operating system are you playing on?
3. are you playing in hardcore mode?
4. are you using any mods?
Let's find this bugger!
I think it's a hardcore mode bug.
see the file below, someone shared it with us.
it's the 3rd character down and when you load on depth 24 and go down to 25, the game will crash 80%.
So with further investigation, I found that you can mod files and still have the ability to create a hardcore character.
This lead me to believe the loading crash is somehow related to the hardcore mode checking setup.
By changing the level depth from 24 to 100 or greater in the save file, I was able to load the game.
Some possible load crash;
spawning an item or monsters on the dat files.
Testing - check all the spawn items and monsters starting on depth 25 and greater.
Since some have reported multi crashes on all dungeons, the items or monster could be in the shared files.
