My first post was (surprise, surprise) in the Nethergate forum asking a question.

Woke up at 10:45. Took a shower. Went to Taco Bell. Went to work at 12:30. Got off at 10:00. Saw a movie. Came home. Browsed the internet. Wrote this post.

I'm glad I read this thread with my MacBook Pro instead of my desktop. That cookie would have made the page stretch on anything with a shorter width.

1. On a scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate a turkey dinner by mom/dad?
My mother makes the most delicious turkey and filling (what we call stuffing here in Central PA) that I have ever eaten. 5.

2. Do you prefer cranberry sauce with turkey/other?
Don't make me hurl. :P

3. Is pumpkin pie usually included?
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving dinner without it.

4. Do you eat the turkey neck or throw it at someone?
Neither.

5. Is there anyone other than myself who absolutely adores turkey dressing?
I do, but we call it filling.

6. Any little traditions out of the usual?
Not really.

Why are you using Alt-F4 instead of exiting from the game menu? Seriously, how hard is it to use the menu? I understand that you think this is a problem, but if you aren't going to exit the game the proper way, you should expect the possibility of it not working correctly.

I have glasses. in General
Law Bringer
Member # 6489

Theoretically, I have glasses. I haven't worn them in over a year, and I'm not even sure where they are. I am very mildy near-sighted. I only need glasses to read things that are more than 100 or so feet away. Even then, if it is large enough, I can still read it. Since I don't drive, the need to read things that far away is hardly pressing, and since my vision is fine aside from that, I never wear said glasses. Also, they make me look about 5 years younger, and as a 21-year-old who still gets carded for R-rated movies, I can do without anything that make me look younger. :P

Actually, the Romans have two. The Celts have one. It all depends on whether you destroy the crystal wands or not.

How Did You Find Spiderweb? in General

I got a Nethergate demo with an issue of PC Gamer back in 1999. It wasn't til 2 years 3 years later that I went to Spiderweb's site and found the Avernum series. In the fall of 2005, I was replaying Nethergate and got stuck. While searching for hints I found this board, and the rest is history.

I just upgraded to 9A500n, and the games still run fine. There is a slight problem though. Leopard doesn't allow applications to create files in the root hard drive directory. The installer should probably be changed so that the game ends up in the Applications folder.

Possible Improvements in Nethergate

The inventory portraits,as well as the absence of names from the character selection area are nods to the original Nethergate.

Jeff was told about the automap in Annwn during the beta. Apparently, he didn't think it was a big deal.

Originally written by Mr Pras:

also 4:3 because it's the smallest possible numbers to describe the ratio

The reason we use 16:10 and not 8:5 is to conform to 16:9, at least I think so.. ;)

Why not 16:12 for 4:3 then? :P

Screenmodes in Nethergate Res in Tech Support
Law Bringer
Member # 6489

A peculiarity of this engine (found in all games using it except the original Nethergate, which had a menu bar, and Avernum 3, which had an Options button on the main screen, is that you can't change the settings unless actually playing a game. Once in the game, press the floppy disk button on the bottom left, select Preferences, and deselect the checkbox that says "Play in full screen window." It is important to note that while the game no longer takes up the whole screen, it is not in a window that you can move around the screen. It just takes up an 800x600 spot in the center of the screen.

Disadvantages aside, Romans make much better singletons than Celts.
