I just noticed something. The more I progress in the game the more often it freezes. Also getting the horses or the boat seems to make it worse. I tested this by getting a boat and a horse and I couldn't take 3 steps without it freezing.

I believe the community as a whole is trying to figure out what's going wrong with that scenario, as well as who actually has a working version.

Also, what do you mean by "freezing up"? Specifically.

The Mouse changes back to the windows mouse and still move but the game doesn't respond and if I try to close down BoA the computer itsself freezes.

What do YOU want to see in G4? in Geneforge Series

I don't know if anybody's Suggested this yet or not. But I would LOVE to be able to shape thorns I'm always running out. In fact despite haveing 95% hit and doing a lot of damage I'm lucky if my thorns last me ONE zone. Also it would be nice if you could create living tools. Some sort of pack mule type creature would be neat. It'd save me lot of weight and room in my inventory. Recipe components take up a lot of room.

After a long search I found that the GF3Prefs.dat file was being deleted. From the sound of this board I don't think I got it from spiderwebsoftware but I recommend that people check their task shecduleing programs and for windows the autoexec.bat and config.sys files. I don't know what the MAC version of those startup files are but I recommend that mac users check them too as commands in these locations caused my problems. Just in case you know.

I Have Windows. When I play the demo nothing happens that would make me think the game is unstable. I'm not reinstalling it. And to the best of my knowledge nothing is being deleted. I've E-Mailed This problem to JEFF VOGEL but no response.

Thanks for all the responses hard to believe I forgot Strong back's carried weight bonus :) and Divine aid's abilites. As for Elite warrior I used it once and never noticed the go bezerk ability. Specific thanks to Exodus13 for the SP recovery formula. I intend to post this on a web site as soon as I can find one willing to host it. :)

I don't know if this is the right forum or not. But I need some major help with making special encounters. First of all I'm using Jeff Vogel's version of the Windows editor. It's the only windows editor I can find!! I have a portal scenario exit. Also I'm working on some spell tomes. I can't find an error in the script file but the game WON'T call the script for the exit or the books.The script looks fine and the blue encounter square has the right script number in it. Could someone PLEASE send me a STEP BY STEP guide to special encounters for dummies. Jeff's instructions might as well be gibberish for all the help they are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bahssikava Laser Puzzle 3 in Blades of Avernum
Apprentice
Member # 5279
Profile #0
I am stuck on the Third Laser Puzzle in Bahssikava's Machinery level. The first two I Breezed through on my own. The third one though I am stuck on. I have spent 8 HOURS on it with DOZENS of lever resets. I know how the Lazers interact but I still can't solve it. Also everything I can seem to find says the refer to the help file. But the problem is the help file gives coordinates. But As far As I know Windows has no way to do that.
