I did once name a Thahd George W. Bush. Well, I was going to anyways, turned out to just be George, but hey.

EDIT: Oh and BTW Solberg, the reason call them Noobs is because I can, that and the fact that while I may not post too often, I lurk quite a bit. Past that, I, while on very few occasions have done so, very rarely ever revive old, dead topics.

I would awnser, but I don't think you want to hear it. Lets just call them noobs and be done with it? Are you suprised anyways? This type of thing happens all the time around here I've noticed.

EDIT: Then again, having not noticed, you could call me a noob, for arising a week old post (though one on top) for a 4 sentence response. Eh, whatever.

Don't worry, they LOVE to do that. I suppose it has something to do with boredom, and another thing to do with the fact that they have been around for quite a bit longer.
BTW: Lovely video, really...

Yea. I just found that out. Please disregard my stupid question. I should have realized that I would have to say what type of creature it was.

When using the call place_monster(location x, location y, monster type, not worth xp), what does the monster type refer to? Is it the same as the monster race? (demon, humanoid, etc...)

What is your status on your 4 Characters? in Blades of Avernum

First off. MegaMan. Awesome.
Second off, these could have all been in one post. There is a policy against double posting, much less quadra posting. Keep that in mind for future reference.
I'll look my characters up later.

I wasn't complaining about the 1 hour thing, more along the lines of 4 posts on a pointless topic as compared to 0 here.

.gif I've always found to murder them. It really makes no difference considering any graphic editor can open a .psd and then select and copy it. I think he just wants them for the web, but I think i'll get him to put all my terrain into a link. (if i can)

Targeting Scripts in Blades of Avernum Editor

ok, i'm trying to create a script which gives a character a special ability. i'm having a couple problems. i'm not going to say what the special ability is, because i want it to be a suprise to some sort of degree. heres what i need to know.
1. how can i return a characters energy points left? i searched the appendix and couldn't find anything.

2. ok, here's the main situation i'm really having difficulty with. i know that if i am making a custom item that i can use the call who_is_custom_item_target. however, if i am making a special ability, how would i allow it to target a creature? (i really hope there's a way to do so, otherwise, that would be lame........ extremely lame)
EDIT: even better, is there a way to allow someone to target a space within sight? i know that BOE had one, and there really should be a way to do so here.

thanks for any help, in advance.

also, i now have 35 (roughly) working floors, and i'm debugging the wall graphics. if anyone wants them, let me know, because Brett want's me to convert them into .gif or .jpg but i refuse. (i won't murder the graphics that way) (hopefully i can convince him to just put it in a seperate folder like the color edits)

EDITAGAIN: you know, i have to say, i have seen 4 replies to a dead topic (The Community Is Criminally Ignorant), and yet no replies to this yet. this is a valid question without all the drama and stupid bs, but no one seems to awnser it, odd. i think if people spent as much making scenarios as they did arguing pointlessly, maybe we actually get something done. i'll stop rambling now.

it's not so much that it's not updated constantly, so much as it's not updated. it seems that Brett has lost his interest and we no longer have a graphic database.

i have noticed that either no one has made any new graphics at all, or Brett simply has been slacking. does anyone know what is going on? he had a family crisis not too long ago, but as far as i knew he was back in business. i know that before he responded within a couple of days about graphic submissions, as compared to now, which i have still not gotten any replies. maybe someone should make a new graphic database.
(unfortunately i have a mac osx so can't use geocities pagebuilder and know absolutely nothing about web page making)

what are you talking about? "you shouldn't attempt to kill it without a high level party or trainer or other MODs"??? I killed it with no higher level then the unregistered version with 2 Thahds and 2 Fyora. all of them extremely weak, and died in one hit from the Drayk. however, being an agent was a mistake in my opinion, they have to be the weakest class around, so i would suggest the leadership trick.
