Thanks. It sounded something like that from the error messages, but I wanted to make sure before changing my town too much.

"Not enough memory" problem in Blades of Exile
Infiltrator

I'm using Carbonized BOE, and I made a fairly large town in the scenario editor. Whenever I enter it, the text box (where it goes "Bug attacks Jenneke) displays a long string of errors like this:

No room for graphic:
debug 0 0 2647

No room for graphic
debug 0 0 2347

and suchlike. Then when I walk into one of the areas with a cat, say, and I'll get a popup error message telling me that Blades doesn't have enough memory to display all the graphics. Graphics it "forgets" look like plain cave floor. It seems to "forget" random graphics each time.

Is there any way I can fix this?

I think the rule is that if you ask, you don't get one. But it's not a bad idea and shortens your name. No harm in trying.

You can look at them with a resource editor. They're in the Geneforge 4 Graphics file.

Apparently Battle Alphas can reproduce also.

I'm a Runescape freak how about you? in General

I used to play Runescape. I grew tired of grinding quickly, and took to running around in the wilderness like a scared puppy. I quit soon after. Combat was very, very boring. Grinding more so. And the swarms of idiots who continually offered to trim my armor were just annoying.

ROSE Online is a good alternative game. Prettier and largely free.

There isn't a whole lot of point in using Alwan if you're going to effectively negate his existence in every battle.

The reason, as I understand it, is that you would be able to kill children in the game if they existed. Apparently genocide of every living thing isn't as bad as killing one child.

Oh my gosh, are all you people serious? Jesus is the greatest guy that ever lived. He is certianly not a part of any problem unless you mean as the solution.

And Elija and Enoch were alive when they went up and are still alive. Elijah will possibly come back here too. And Just to get the story straight, Jesus was alive and came here and died on the cross and then rose again and was alive again. And when he went to heaven it was as a living person. The whole point was that death had no hold of him as he was sinless and beyond reproach. Now any body who can do what he did deserves a lot of respect. Jesus was great even before he came here and he really proved his greatness as king of kings when he would go through all he did as if he were a sinner out of love for God and the people God has chosen. Now he will live forever with all things, even death under his feet.

Please stop doing two (2) things:

1) Preaching. Some people on this board are undoubtedly as devout Christians as you. However, they do not feel the need to tell us that every post.

2) Please stop posting when you are high on bug spray, or whatever it is you were trying to say.

Strange... kill people and no one invades.

But threaten to kill people, which logically should be less severe, and all hell is loose.

It seems like a lot of you on this forum are bigots.

let me say something that im going to get flamed for oh well.

Hate the sin. Love the sinner.

Note= you guys have had a lot of time to think this over but you have no respect for people like me.

People who make your arguments are generally bigoted, and you have done nothing to dissaude us of that notion.

If you don't think that there is anything wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality, but are convinced by your arguments that they should not be allowed to marry, (which would make you the first I've ever heard of) then you still have not proved the rebuttals to your arguments wrong.

A good Studio Ghibli film is Spirited Away.

I liked Over the Hedge too, as well as many of the earlier Disney films I watched as a kid.

Madagascar and its ilk, however, are utterly unfunny slime.

That's one of those foods that I swear would explode if you put a match to it.

Kind of like fried seafood or Pepe's pizza.

Just an aside because I probably won't post in any of the other rounds: I agree with Wonko about nominating KOTOR II. Bugs, graphical glitches, a pointless and reused plot, and totally a let-down from KOTOR I.
I listed KOTOR II as inspiration because it got me all hyped up and then wouldn't work on my computer, not because of the gameplay (which I don't know about). But you can use it for whatever you want.

The worst plots I've ever seen have been mysterious and interesting at first, with a lot of questions that seem exciting and worth answering, that then give completely vacuous or unsatisfying answers (to take a very mild example, VoDT).
I hate those plots. The worst thing an author can do, IMO, is to give us a mystery and answer it in an entirely inadequate way.

My Entry: The worst game in the world is one that is highly praised by game review sources. From the screenshots you've seen, the graphics are simply amazing. It has incredible and innotiative gameplay, the sort that redefines the genre.

You've read forums after forums of people describing how awesome it is. It seems utterly perfect in every way. The gameplay videos, screenshots, reviews and previews make it seem like the perfect game for you. The system requirements fit your computer. You buy it, or download a demo.

And it doesn't work. It just doesn't. You double-click on the icon, the screen goes black, perhaps a few logos appear. Then it quits back to your desktop, maybe informing you with a nice polite error message that your hopes and dreams of the past solid week are dead. You spend half a minute wallowing is desperation and disbelief.

Then you go mad. You search the Internet late into the night for tech support, missing files, patches, people with a similar problem to yours, etc. Maybe you get a different error message. Maybe you get as far as the opening movie. And as you gradually realize that nothing will work, you shrivel up in despair.

Inspiration: KOTOR 2, Hitman: Blood Money.
