Don't have the correct version of Mac OSX. Didn't find any other compilers (at least not downloads) on the apple site.

Point me in the right direction of a (C++ i'm assuming?) compiler, and I can build it for you.

Anyone feel like helping? in The Avernum Trilogy

MM brought up something I should have clarified. The .exes are always corrupted. The files themselves, however, are not. What I need are the folders of the games in .zip format. What I cannot use is the .exe in .zip packages.

UPDATE: A1, A2, and A3 are now taken care of. Only G1, G2, and G3 remain.

Yes, please do.

Some things you must understand first:
1. You need to be on a windows operating system.
2. You must send them in .zip format, it is the only format I have been able to use without file corruption so far.

If you meet both those requirements, send them to Emigliah@hotmail.com

Thanks...

True, but the one guy who sends in a completed scenario has an even better chance.

So, anyone who is currently on a windows operating system, should do something better with their time and help me. That sounds like a good idea to me. You should check out my topic in the Avernum Trilogy forum titled "Anyone feel like helping?".

There is a better waste of time.

I am greatly confused by the concept myself. I have reported his more graphic posts. Maybe the moderators have fallen asleep...

Yea, I understand that, however, what are the chances of a scenario winning that cannot be finished, or is just plain buggy? Maybe I should have submitted my half finished scenario, and just made a crappy ending, it might have had a good chance...

All the new scenarios are great, but I have two words (or is it one?)

BETA TESTING...

Having said that, it's great to have some designers getting their stuff up and running.

I agree. A lot of ideas are wasted. There would have to be a web-site, or at least a forum category for this to be implemented to any efficiency however.

Works fine for me. You should try it again, and if it doesn't work, then it's probably something wrong with your browser.

In my experience, I have always found this to be a bad idea. I once had to search half of G2 in order to find a stupid flawless crystal that I had dropped with a bunch of other crap.

The easiest method that I can think of right off the bat, is to open any graphic editing program, and zoom in. You can see them pretty easily this way.

Yes, that is where the file corruption comes into play.

Okay, here is what is happening. I am (unfortunetaly) switching from a Mac to a PC, the problem is that the PC does not have internet connection. I have been using an external drive to transfer the downloaded .exe of all of my favorite games, the problem is that the last 2 files are always corrupted. The only one I have been able to get is BOA. This is only because the last two files of installation are read-mes. However, when I transfer the actual files, nothing gets corrupted. What I need is for someone to PLEASE send me A1, A2, A3, G1, G2, and G3, as .zip files. I have the capacity to hold it, so long as someone has the server capacity to send it. Please help.

and no, I don't have enough money to buy anything that would allow me to transfer these without corruption, nor can I link the two together.

My e-mail is Emigliah@hotmail.com...

BTW: I'm not asking anyone to send me all six, if someone could take the time to send me just one of them (and say so on this topic, so others don't send me the same one) it would be appreciated.

Why do you want a house? Just kill everyone in a town. Then you have a town for yourself and all your pet skulls...

Well, that's what I did at least.
