Romeo and Juliet. Thoughts? in General

Just about every idea is a repeat now because after so many years with so many people with so many ideas, almost everything has been thought of at least once.

Not only in forums but in real life as well. Those who can't be polite are usually in big trouble wherever they go.

Of course, Dikiyoba has been accused of being too polite at times.

Because it is an uber-powerful drakon, that's why.

Dikiyoba hopes player get a chance to slay it as the final quest of some future Geneforge.

Both of you ^ seem to have an intimate understanding of English. Or you pretend to.

My thoughts exactly. I'm not understanding half of what is said in this topic. This is either really good or really bad considering that I'm trying to create my own language.

At least Dikiyoba won't be able to confuse people with long linguistic terms.

I hate it when the vampire in BoA's VoDT summons three more vampires. Which, in turn, sometimes summon ogre mages. Time to reload...

Be careful. Alorael's minions, er, friends, are really touchy about anyone who mimics Alorael's sig in any shape or form. Even one that doesn't remotely resemble it.

Edit: Dikiyoba knows exactly what Dikiyoba is talking about.

Romeo and Juliet. Thoughts? in General
Councilor

In both movies of Romeo and Juliet I have seen, the Count doesn't die, only Mercutio. But the prince says "...I have lost a brace of kinsmen..." in both of the movies. But a brace means two and the Prince only loses one. It's the funniest moment of the whole movie.

Dikiyoba hates the nudity in one of the movie too. Given that female roles were played by boys, there probably wouldn't have been much undressing in the play...

The message boards sound bad, but the walkthroughs are incredibly useful. Of course, the ones I've been on were written by individuals and just hosted by GameFAQs.

I think it's an engine problem more than the call itself since not everyone is getting the bug. Besides, I've had troubles with the call move_to_new_town and there's nothing wrong with that call most of the time.

Even if he did, people often have trouble catching their own mistakes.

I'd rather see another epic adventure. I go elsewhere for my comic adventuring. I want my epic adventuring fixes here.

Dikiyoba would like something besides Avernum and Geneforge and would like height too. Combat and graphic alterations can be dealt with but height is an element sorely lacking in G1, G2, G3, and A4.

I suppose if the name you really, really wanted was taken by someone who no longer posts here, you could always put it in your signature.

Unless you're the sort of person who enjoys being able to read every book without having to have a library of them or have random quotes spoken to you by a bleached skull.

G3 Shaper Guide in Geneforge Series
Councilor
Member # 6600

There is a fairly detailed walkthrough for G3 already on GameFAQs. It isn't specifically designed for Shapers, though, so strategy should be a big part of the guide. Other people's opinions (and strategies) could add to your guide.

I'd prefer ads at the top and bottom to popup ads. They aren't so in-your-face.

Terrain script calls in Blades of Avernum Editor

I borrow bits and pieces from other scripts (and my own too) whenever I need to do something in a script and then go to the docs if I can't find what I want. Then I test the completed script. It's slow but it works.

That's what people said about dynamite. And the atomic bomb. Heck, people probably said that about the invention of bronze. Haven't people realized that making war more deadly doesn't deter people? It just makes it more deadly!
Thus changing the way the war is fought by making it even more deadly. What do you expect? Now that industrialized countries can avoid deaths by disease, there has to be something to keep the casualties high.

A lot of issues are resolved without his help though. I'm betting most of the ones that don't get resolved and aren't just the result of a user's computer probably get e-mailed to him eventually.

Dikiyoba notices that descriptions of bugs and other issues often end up in the other forums anyway.

The link to the other forum could be put up on top with the other links. That way people have easy access to the other forum and this forum can survive.

Av3: Can I get back to the cult of the sacred item? in The Avernum Trilogy

I guess then the only choice is to have as much strength as possible before visiting the cult to be able to carry away as much of the expensive goods as possible.
