Control rod in Geneforge Series

You see those power spirals in the room with the geneforge? Click on them and if you have the control rod then you'll get an option to insert the key into the spiral. After you havedone this with all four, click on the geneforge and you can destroy it without the barrier preventing you.

It's important to be clear that when you have a creation with you, ie a clawbug for example, that whatever essence you used in that creation cannot be regained until it dies. If you absorb it you only get about half back. So best to let it die unless you REALLY need that essence. I try to leave about 10 essence points when I make a creation (I only have 102 right now total) so I have enough to cast spells like heal, cure, and unlock. Essence pods are good, but all you need to do to recoup is to go to a friendly village (Vakkiri, Ellrah's Keep, Pentil, and Kazg will work unless you've made someone mad there) You don't even need to find the pools there, you need only go in and you're replenished. I always return to recover from battle before continuing to another world. If you've cleared all the areas (or at least made them passable) so they're green you can jump to ANY area without having to go in sequencial order. I'm working on the East Docks right now, but I can jump to Vakkiri quite easily since everything inbetween is cleared.

Hope that helps

Auri

It doesn't matter wheter you absorb it or let it die. When you absorb it you immediatley get half the essence back, but the rest of the essence is now freed up, no longer keeping it alive, so simply return to a town, drink an essence pod, or find an essence pool and you'll get the rest back.

switch between apps in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 4345
Profile #6
You can switch applications on a mac if you pause geneforge or geneforge 2 by pressing escape. Well, at least on Mac OS 9, but it should work on Mac OS 10.

EDIT: To be a bit more specific, when gf or gf2 is paused on mac os 9 the little toolbar at the top of the screen is visible, so you can just go back to Finder and greneforge will automatically hide itself.

Actually, I think the spinecores can absorb other spinecores buds if they have used all theirs up. The spinecore owning the other ones might have to be dead though.

Fort muck in Geneforge Series

Nope. But if your looking for an extra member in your party, there is a friendly rat in that area walking in circles around the fort, and he'll join your team, regardless of leadership or other stuff. He gets kinda useless after a while though and there's like no point keeping him alive.

Stick to the edges and head east. He's staring at a pool of water in the north east corner.

improvements for geneforge 3.... your thoughts in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 4345
Profile #237
Well, if he's going to be changing the graphics a little, there are some things that didn't really make sense. For example, Drakons use the essence orbs attack for their missle attack. However would it be possible to have the firebolt picture for each attck, rather than the essemce orbs picture? Cause in the drakons description on the making a creation page they said they sprayed bolts of fire or something like that. Also, shouldn't essence orbs look a little more like.....orbs? In GF2 it hardly looks different from the ice spray attack. Other than that, I guess there's nothing else for me to say that hasn't alreadt been saud. For all I know THIS has already been said.

Do you mean VISIBLY glowing? Like the character graphic changes? Or are you referring to when you walk around towns a text box comes up saying how everyone's staring at you and you look at your skin and its glowing.

Which side do you agree with (not which side did you choose) in Geneforge Series
Warrior

Yeah I sided with the awakened for the reasons already stated. However I think the decision might have been made a little harder if the obeyers werent so evil(starving the villages) and the awakened werent so angelic. Maybe if the awakened had been starving the villages and they obeyers were spotless....

Too bad they didn't have some sort of secret area like
SPOILER(sorta)
that temple in spirit city in GF1 you had to touch the stone pillars in a certain order to get in
END SPOILER
Something like that would have been pretty cool. Although maybe there is something like that in the game but we cant be bothered to find it. Who knows?
