Pratchettian Mathematics in General

My maths teacher says he has this proof that 1=0 and either he hasn't actually shown us it yet or my memory is like a sieve, and right now I'm wondering that it probably is...

Game recommendation? in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 1207

I found all of Spiderweb's Exile games on demo disks, but I didn't register any till I found that BoE had a Scenario Editor you had to register to use. Then I registered Exile 3, mainly because it was the most similar. Then when Avernum came out I registered A3, cos you get a discount for registering an Exile and Avernum game.... Well, my life story in a nutshell. They're all pretty good, but I personally never really got into Geneforge....

On a side note, the Vahnatai would win and someone should make a scenario of something like this (maybe not exactly, but y'know, similar... maybe just one of you exploring Vahnatai lands... IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards The War of the Races (2)_files/wink.gif) )

me = ørangutan
who cares what my screen name is?
—ørangutan, who takes joy and amusement in giving Alorael's non-existent impersonator an identity, even using the "stylish m-dash" in the process, whilst simultaneously ducking out of sniper range
(that is, creating an impersonator of Alorael and forgetting everything on the previous page temporarily)

Ooh, how intresting! I'm reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, mainly cos I got to for an English project.

I really like the Pratchett books and I liked the Douglas Adams books when I remembered what they were all about (they were a bit weird though... 42? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hello there everyone____what game are you playing now (2)_files/rolleyes.gif) )

I should really go out and see it in a minute maybe. Since it's nighttime...
but it's been raining for half the day (and I broke my umbrella! IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards ASTRONOMY UPDATE Mars_files/wink.gif) ) so I probably won't see it...
And anyway how could you not know about it?? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards ASTRONOMY UPDATE Mars_files/eek.gif) It's been all over the TV and the newspapers for the past week! (There was a cool foto of it in the Metro IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards ASTRONOMY UPDATE Mars_files/wink.gif) )

Trogdor - Star Wars happened "A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away". Yoda therefore could not have known about grammar in Old German.

Arancaytar-are you German? Assuming yes, if you use google's translator on this site, does it translate text you type into English?

.MOD - .MP3 Conversion in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 1207

My dad had a program called UltraRecorder which records from a connected vinyl or cassette player. Then you can use iTunes to convert to mp3.
I'm also pretty sure iTunes does .mod -> .mp3 as well as other formats like .aif and audio cd tracks...

Well, Ørangutan (haha, that was easy!), the map wasn't made by me, so I can't do anything about it. Also, the map appears to be highly inaccurate concerning the current non-arena timeline, from what I heard. That's why I'm constantly asking how it really looks, but nobody wants to tell me... :P
I wasn't blaming you, sorry. I just thought the continents should all be joined together or have small straits of water inbetween, since Valorim is definitely connected by land to Pralgrad (this was in E3 ;) ).
Can nuclear fallout really move continents? :eek:
(btw, that's a pretty feeble way of writing an ø. how bout trying shift+alt with o?)

You can do that pretty easily. Just set up a soundless teleportation node that jumps the party a few spaces back. Set up the terrain with walls on both sides of the staircase, and the player won't notice that they are going over the same steps over and over again.
No, no, no, no, one that goes round in a circle. Like that Escher painting (hence calling it an "Escher staircase").

I s'pose it doesn't work on Exile games, m'self. If you took out a scenario file on BoE, then went to the game and loaded your game from that scenario it would give you an error and load the party in your current situation, for instance.

I have this random name generator which I use to make up my names sometimes. I played through E3 with such-made names (I believe they were Cazatire, Seneroth, Kuch, Ku'Apaabr, Xoenguage and some other similar-sounding name... IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Names_files/smile.gif) )
Just so that you know, Djur you sound kinda sad for naming them all the same, and what is up with your cat's names, bLuRrY??

Would I be able to create "Escher staircases" in BoA, i.e. staircases that keep going up and up and up (or down and down and down)? If not by just placing the staircase terrain, would there be a way to change the vertical level of the staircase (without the player noticing)?

Maybe it could be a series of cliffs which the player can fly up. Maybe for "high mountains" there could be, instead, those wall things. Of course, the caves are set into the walls, so that would make caves almost impossible...

Do you mean terrain squares?

Scripts are the replacement of special nodes, though I believe there may be a simpler editor more like the special node editor from BoE
