Luck is very unlikely to save you from a fall in the original though. No matter how many times I tried, I could never get a character to survive that fall again.

You should be able to tell Cartumnus about the crown if you use the editor to set flag (7,3,250)

This problem stems from Jeff's modifications to the games to work with Vista, which doesn't like programs to write to the Program Files folder (Go figure :rolleyes: ) Anyway, the game puts its save files in the user's documents directory. Most likely, the game was installed using the admin account. Unfortunately, no accounts (other than those with administrator privileges can) can read or write to another account's documents directory.

Depending on what privileges your account has, you may or may not be able to install programs, if you are unable, ask your parents (or whoever it is that controls the computer) to temporarily give your account administrator privileges. Then, reinstall the game from your account. Your parents can return your account to its original state, and you should have no problems saving anymore. :)

That door is the only way into the area. You'll have to either come back when you're stronger or find Magic Lockpicks or a Pass Portal Scroll. Or, if you're playing Celts, you can learn the Pass Portal spell.

If they say 95 and 96, that is exceedingly odd, because they definitely came out later than that. :P

As for the plastic cases, I've seen them at Walmart.

The All Circle scroll does not give points to all circles, only war, health, craft, and beast. It is impossible for Romans to learn the spirit circle at all.

Nevermind. Apparently, it can't open it if you overwrite an older file, but if you create a new one, it works fine.

EDIT: If it can feasibly be removed, the dialog box that pops up at the beginning asking if you want to change your graphic settings refers top problems in pre-OS X Macs, so that should be removed since it doesn't have an option to not change and never ask again.

Applications without icons bug me, so I resized the old BoE icon to 128x128 (OS X icon size) and pasted it onto the app. I have it available on my webspace. This archive is identical in very way to Khoth's with the exception of the old BoE icon pasted onto the app.

EDIT: I found a problem. It doesn't open BoE save files, even ones that you save with this app.

It seems to work fine on my MacBook Pro. Is there any chance you can give it its old icon?

This is a kind of funny post, almost every good history book lists the main primary sources for a book. These are usually readily avaialable. That is the meaning of primary source. To say an obscure archival source is of primary nature is misleading at best. T

hen stating that the author you are listing is a fraud and is using non-existent secondary sources is a pretty clear indicator you should be looking for that author as a reliable source of entertainment not facts. The truth is boring most of the time.

So are you saying that writer should not use obscure books as their primary sources? Just because it's obscure doesn't mean it's bad.

My Roman singleton was a freaking tank by the end of the game. The polished plate mail in the Hall of the Lamp and the Fury Helm in Galag-Trav are very helpful.
