Oh god- I feal nauseic (G4)

Don't get me wrong-- I'll still play at least the demo. The notion of, say, disguising one's self as a shaper to infiltrate their fortresses suggests the potential for an interesting use of diplomacy. We'll see, however, how well this plays out.

Not true. Creator could not beat Bahss with a level 1 party.

(Heck, he couldn't even do Canopy. But that's not much of an insult-- level requirements in BoA are much steeper in severity than they were in BoE. Imban wrecked B2 with a level 1 party and Thuryl did Echoes with the same, but those kind of stunts just aren't possible with this system.)

Graphic 1654 in Blades of Avernum Art (the swarthy gal with a green shirt and brown armor) has no sword-with-shield-and-armor graphic. The graphic of her armored with sword-and-shield is missing the shield.

Name by which you'd liked to be credited: ™
E-mail address: terrorsmartyr @ wi . rr . com (minus spaces around the punctuation)
Operating system (Mac, Windows, etc.): MacOS v10.2.8
Do you want to be part of the first group of testers (bearing in mind the time/energy commitment that it entails): A better question is, "do YOU want ME to be part of ANY testing group". ^_^
Do you have a save file for a party that has just finished Bahssikava: Probably. If not, there's always the HLPM/Artifacts Hall.
Do you want to use the Beta Testing Center: Don't care; your call

Either there is no get_max_energy(); call, or there is no such call in the docs.

Either way, this should be fixed.

The widow queen/erika splice is a good idea, but in the front-facing graphics, the erika part is a bit too far out from the rest of the spider.

The green worm spider thing is really creepy looking, but there's absolutely no contrast.

The fucshia widow queen is absolutely horrible-looking. Like, it's a bad graphic. Sorry.

I like the fencer, although watch out-- some of its legs in the attacking poses may be cut out if it exceeds the lower boundary of a tile. Also, some of the edits to this one appear a bit to "patchy".

The next one... What, exactly, is he DOING? Like, is he launching his fist?

The kanji fellow... He looks nice, but I'm not sure why the kanji are necessary. Oh well.

The first Paladin doesn't exactly differentiate between which directions its facing at any one time.

The second paladin's rear-facing ready graphics are odd-looking, but that can't really be helped.

The bladesmasters look a little, well... Their robes and shields seem to have lost all contrast and shading.

The weird assassin fellow seems interesting, but his death is horribly cheap. Sorry. :P

The "impire" is interesting and not too bad looking (although the wings seem a little high), although it too lacks detail or contrast.

...

Okay. Here's a bunch of graphics I've been keeping. (And if I don't say where they're from, just assume that they're edited from Spidweb graphics.) We'll see how this goes:

Asphalt roads. The first of those graphics is intended to be a section of sidewalk. These are original.

An archmage. A colorshift, but I'm using it anyway.

An automaton. Whether it merely whacks folks with fire or shoots out beams of fire is up to you, I suppose.

A blue bladesman. I intended for this guy to be a CO of the blue army fellows (see below).

Blue infantryman
Blue ranger
Blue swordsman
These three make up a color-coded army. The infantryman and archer are from Avernum, but the swordsman is by Zeeqon. And on the other side of the fence is the red army:
Red infantryman
Red ranger
Red swordsman

A camouflaged bladesman. If monsters didn't make "oh look, I see you now!" noises, this fellow might almost sneak up on you.

Chief Licgan from Emerald Mountain.

Diagonal stairways.

A duelist, and this one's an original (whoops).

General Luthair from Mad Ambition. He's the General graphic taken from Fire Emblem (although it was a good deal of work converting him).

Mauler the Ursag. Again, a color shift, but it makes him look dangerous. Hopefully.

A military gal in her ceremonial garb.

The same woman from above, except unarmed this time.

(Pretend I put the Nephil Nomad from Mad Ambition here. The one with the sword. Currently, Geocities absolutely will not for any reason allow me to upload this file.)

Nephil ranger from Mad Ambition. The horse comes from Avernum 3, but the nephil itself is by Frahhamn.

A noble. This is Eliwood from Fire Emblem 7.

A crazy-powerful archer. This is the Warrior (using his bow) from Fire Emblem 6-8.

A purple archmage. This is a color shift of Stareye's archmage graphic.

A regal guard. Intended for ceremonial (but still functional) purposes.

An aristocrat with a shotgun, a simple edit of a graphic by Jayne Holt.

A sink.

A Spere from Emerald Mountain.

Spiegelbrecher from Canopy.

Televisions. Sure, these are edited, but not by much.

Vile magister. This one's original.

A warg rider.

A water elemental.

Wihcaser from Emerald Mountain.

A worm. This one's taken from GF3.

A young noble. This is Roy from Fire Emblem 6.

Extra: Terrestial is delayed until Emergency: Room is done. Fortunately, the latter is progressing at a fairly decent rate.
In the meantime, I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

Well then.

(Although honestly-- I do feel as if Square is changing directions here. I merely found it to be non-coincidental that it happened around the time of the merger. If Square is responsible for the crap it's been putting out, so be it-- I'll just learn to hate them instead. ~_~)

y order would be I, VI, VII, X, IX, IV, V, III, II, VIII. I also did enjoy X-2, and FFT, though very different, is an excellent game.
X-2 is horrible, and placing I above anything short of V is a sin.

How did you emulate it properly? Sixtyforce usually chokes up and dies.

EDIT: Nevermind, turns out I'm using v.6 instead of v.8.

EDIT2: Actually, Alo, if you could forward me registrated sixtyforce, it'd be nice. :P

I grew up on VII. Personally, my ordering is VII, VI, X, VIII, IX, IV, V, II, I.
(I haven't played III, I'm not counting XI, and anything else is S-E.)

For consoles, Square. Not Square-Enix, but Square.

For PC, that's a no-brainer: Black Isle.

Another constant to watch out for is "shop". I don't know if this has a VALUE or not, but if you use it as a variable, your script will crash.
