Khoth's laser chamber in Blades of Avernum
Shaper

I got through without too much hassle. It's a meatter of watching for patterns in the lasers (using liberal smatterings of the wait key) and frying the efreets with a mixture of lasers and magical attacks.

The only thing you can do is try and try again.

Of the Scenario formerly known as The Demon Stone in Blades of Avernum

As of this very minute, I am restarting work on the Demon Stone, which will now be called "The Yedda Prophecy". due to a PS2 game being released with the former title. I haven't been working on it for the last month or so, for many different reasons, but I am close to completion, so expect it early next year.

On that note, I will be volunteering it for beta-testers around christmas time. Thank's for your time.

Wow! And I remember your first few posts! You, if I remember correctly (and it is unlikely), discussed the history of the Sliths with Drakey. From that minute, I knew that you'd be a (whisper it!) potential rival to Alorael!

Actually, I'm lying, but well done anyway!

You missed the semi-colon off the end of the line where you called the message_dialog. That is probably the problem.

Actually, after hunting down and beating Vahkos twice, he spills. This is when you can side with him or kill him. Of course, being bold and virtuous adventurers, you side with the mayor, right?

I hate it when n00bs tell someone (usually Djur, it seems like) that they should back off and not insult them because "You don't know me." I feel like I have a reasonable understanding of the personalities of a few people on these boards, and while I may not know what all of you look like, and I may not know the peculiar conversational habits that you may have in spoken intercourse, I do know something about what makes some of you tick. That's knowing you, whether you like it or not.

I don't think anyone (shut up, FBM) is actually that different on these boards from how he or she is in real life. The mature, intelligent ones are mature and intelligent in life. The idiots are probably idiots in real life. There may be a few exceptions here and there, but they are exceptions and not the rule. I don't know if this is evidence of anything, but I'm usually pretty good at judging people's ages based on their posts (even when their ages are surprising, as with a few of the members of this community).

Still, meeting some of you face-to-face would force me to acknowledge some interesting realities. Sometimes I try to imagine Thuryl's posts spoken with an Australian accent and I just start laughing. I don't even know what a Finnish accent sounds like, but I'm sure one of you crazy Finns has one, and it must sound completely different from what I imagine in my head when I read those posts.

I agree. People are usually waht they say they are. If someone is an idiot (and on occasion I have been among them..) it stands to reason that they are like that in "real life".

The reason I post here is the chance to make new friends. It isn't everyday I communicate with an American or German, and for me it is like travelling around, and sharing information between people.

Similarly. I have got to know people. I have realised what makes many of you "tick", and would be able to recognise you without your usual name. If that isn't knowing someone, I don't know what is...

In response to Mad Mezzulah's last statment, not seeing someone isn't the same as not knowing. I feel I know Arancaytar, or whatever he's calling himself these days, pretty well and consider him a friend, even though I have never seen him, and I'm sure he feels the same (hopefully!).

Have you tried deleting the file that holds prefrences? I think it's called something like "Avernumdata", but don't take my word for it. Unfortunatley, if you registered, you'll have to get in contact with J.Vogel, because this unregisters the game.

First of all, there's an item editor? I haven't seen one recently, but then again I haven't been to the workshop this week so...

I usually find that just typing the item into the custom scenario data file, as explained in Chapter 2.8ish in the docs.

And ignore the post by You get NOTHING. Most people on the boards are very nice, and a few are even legendary people! All in, if you ignore the idiots, you'll do just fine.

Oh, and YgN, did you ever bother to think that Diablo-Killer doesn't speak English too well?

You'll probably need LOTS more! Despite the fact that the gold cap is set at 15,000, you shuld try to reach it at least twice in order to get everything. Hawkes Manse costs aout 7,000 alone!

--Random Fact Number 14 - "The gold cap sucks. Why did Jeff decide to cut it down from the 30,000 limit in Exile 3 and BoA? That's games designers for you..."

Depending on what you're doing, might it be better to have an "outdoors town?" like in The Cave of No Return? Otherwise, I have no idea. The outdoor calls have no mention of this kinda thing, so I think you're stuck.

I hate this, but the BoA Editor docs do clear things up a bit. Unfortuantely, I don't have them with me, so I can't quote.

Also, why didn't Jeff stick with the damage's used in Exile/Av1?
