On a related note, does anyone know if the Scenario Judging forum still open? I can't enter it because I wasn't a judge, but I would still like to know.
Why would it matter? The forum exists, and those who were allowed to post are still able to do so, but the contents have been purged.

I'm afraid no game using the Geneforge engine can be run in a window. And as far as I've heard, there's no decent workaround.

I think so, yeah. This would mark the second time I've plugged it despite not even being a member. (Edit: Slow writer. This one in response to Aran.)

Well the blinking ads can be blocked. These on the other hand... Still, I suppose they are less offensive than the traditional ads, or even the traditional spam bots. No excessive linking or anything.

Honestly, do yourself a favor and stop typing. You're not going to change anything, only annoy more people. Walk away from the keyboard.

Damn you, Tully! This was the least entertaining thread on general since forever, and you had to go and ruin it with content.

So who's the troll?

Oh wow. This scenario must be good, since I didn't understand the plot at all. A bit short, but that seems to be the trend these days.

'fraid not. None of the games using the newer engine can be run in a window.

I had three internal server errors, when trying to post this. So it might be about time to do this.

My only concern is that all the oldbies will lose their prestige-awarding member numbers, and instead be grouped together with all the forum trash that has registered in the latter half of the '00s.

OK. I apparently still don't get it. I felt the posts I made were definately "stand alone" this time.
The Spiderweb forums' stand on double posting is negative in pretty much all cases, no matter how stand-alone they might be. Unless your posts are months apart, and you feel as though some new information has made the topic relevant again, double posting is always frowned upon.

quote:
I can combine the 2 different posts into 1 and still have a post I'll need to fill as it seems that normal board maintenance is not possible here. If I combine them I'll still leave an empty post.
Yes, UBB sucks that way. Salmon's post was more of a tip for the future.

quote:
Please explain this to me, publicly and in detail what I'm doing wrong, and why normal BBS maintenance is so "not doable".
Double posting; see my first paragraph. The general consensus is that double posting looks ugly, and is also a way to increase your post count without merit, which is also not looked upon kindly.

Isn't it time to upgrade to something that works? Just dump it all if you have to and get it right. Encourage members to re-post. Make a downloadable zip for an archive. Something besides all this nipping at my heels, and anyone else who rocks the boat.
Yes, the time to upgrade was years ago. The problem is finding someone with the time, energy and resources to do it. Also, it might be a question of money.

BOA Default Scenarios Not Showing in Tech Support

This is the first time that I personally have heard of anything like this happening, so my proposal is this:
  • uninstall the game
  • download it again and reinstall
I gather you have a registered copy, so if the game claims to be unregistered after the re-installation, replace the new "BladesofAvernumData.dat" with the backup you made earlier.

Vat Keeper changed to Shock Trooper? Well, that's a definite improvement, but like a lot of people here, I must say that I preferred the Exile/Avernum titles over these new ones.

So, I see the titles for post ranks have been changed to more Geneforgey ones. Opinions?

All areas accessible to the player are visible. The parts that are unexplored are that way because going that way causes an instakill.

The building south of your point of entry.

There are two dressers along the western wall.

The eye is in the southern dresser.

If you can't find it there, check your special items in case you've already picked it up. If it's not in the dresser, or in your list of special items, then I'm all out of ideas.
