The 220.127.116.11 version is buggy and unstable, and should not be played.
It appears in the original release, the SecuRom DRM caused many problems, so they released a hotfix and later a full new version that removed that DRM and fixed several bugs.
You should definitely download the new version from Gamersgate.
The crashes are probably related to the 1.0 bugs.
There was an update for the CE table and the weapon thing was fixed.
