When you regain control of your character try to find Shadow and then look for Kobayashi. If Kobayashi looks funny or is just plain not there, the crash may be due to something wrong with him.
I'm assuming you mean to go into KSE game editor and enable the cheats then simply skip that dialog and resume the game from there. Am I correct?
