Well, it was spit out again after being mauled a little.

Also, in some games, items must be identified before they can be sold...

I know. I was talking about an overall slowing in production, over time, or at least lately.

Don't stop making scenarios. ;)

Responding to Zorro, it seems you just have a classic case of the novelty of something wearing off. Sometimes there is something that you get into that really excites you; something that you do and do and can't stop doing. However, after a while, you start exhausting the intriguing areas of that thing, and before you know it the experience becomes more and more mundane, and eventually you lose the urge to continually do that thing.

This may have happened with you. Exile 1 was new and exciting, and the subsequent exiles all had new plots and new features and were very engaging. Then Avernum came around, with basically the same plot but a different engine. You know what will happen next, and you're fine-tuned with the world and tactics of gameplay, and eventually the sense of discovery and intrigue wears off.

As good as Jeff's games are (and they are indeed very excellent), one could only see that six full-length games, the latter three repeats of the former three, are enough to drag out this feeling. Avernum 4 just furthered the effect. Indeed, this may be just the thing that has halted the production of BoX scenarios to a trickle lately.

My solution for this is to find something else that you enjoy and do that for a while and discover something else, whether it be a new computer game or hobby. Often times, after time spent away from something overplayed like Avernum will reinstill the desire to play it again, and it will be much more enjoyable when you do.

Am I making any connections to people here, or do some people just never get tired with SW games?

There is one food that's quite free and plentiful here. And prickly.

Arguably so for those who have little interest in it. There's a lot of walking around, flipping bats, adjusting caps, spitting on the ground, and waiting for the catcher to call the pitch.

However, if you have a team you're rooting for, a player you're following, and love baseball, there's nothing that beats a good game.

Are you sure the variable string is the correct datatype (declared as a string)?

char string[] = "Text";
char* string = "Text";

Or maybe there's a different string datatype used in BoA.

That's what we do. We picked up all the ingredients in the larders, but when we use the ovens, it says we don't have all the ingredients.

We have honey, chestnuts, milk, sugar, apples, flour, barley, chili powder, peaches, and caramel.

I actually though you meant this for a second, but apparently not.

I've never played World of Warcraft, though I probably should have. (???)

A couple things I noticed:

- The Seventh Plague link in broken.
- How about these scenarios:
Ravaged Land
Homeland
Quenick's Quest
Gray Moon II
Arena of Death
