No. Absolutely no jokes to be made about Germans. None.

I already gave you a link in the tech support topic you posted your question in. But in order to be slightly more helpful: look in "Documents". And if they're not there... oh, I dunno... try searching for files called "items" everywhere. That might help. Or not.

I downloaded Exile 1, Exile 3 and Nethergate (the original). The first two would not run, not even in compatibility mode, but Nethergate installed and started just fine. Based on that, games running the Nethergate/Avernum engine or newer will probably work on Vista x64. I guess it's possible to get the Exiles to run with some OS trickery, but I wouldn't know how.

Best game to buy in General

I'd recommend trying Exile 2 or 3 and Nethergate: Resurrection. They're all favorites of long-time fans and are quite different from what the latest games are like. Also, since all Spiderweb games are free to try out, it isn't very hard to find out which game you like best.

As for A5, you won't have to wait very long for it to come out anyway.

Something about you being Alo's bot maybe? Or was it the other way around? I forget. Anyways, it's clear that someone's been having a laugh with the poll: A person who speaks Finnish, but isn't a Finn? Someone who speaks Korean and/or Arabic? Not likely.

By your logic, neither is there a U.S.

I remember Beadle's About! They aired it over here a long(ish) time ago, too. It was a pretty decent candid camera show, or maybe I was just the right age for enjoying it. Can't say I'm very saddened by his death though, considering I haven't heard anything about him since those days.

64-bit Vista here. No problems, at least with the newer games. I've understood that Nethergate (the original) and earlier games won't work.

Yeah, I agree, and I'm sure if you ask any Finn they'd agree that eating salmiakki (salted liquorice) is no great feat. That's why I was so surprised to see a few of the Americans I work with take one taste, make some not-so-flattering comparisons, and then leave the bag for us hungry Finns. Ah well, I guess it's an acquired taste.

How do I tell if I have enough "sisu" to eat "lipeäkala"
First buy a normal sized bag of "salmiakki". If you can eat the contents in less than an hour and keep it down, you're ready for the big challenge. You should also try "mämmi".

Hei Scorpius! Minäkin olen suomalainen, ja asun aivan lähelläsi Espoossa! Onpa mukava tavata muita suomalaisia täällä Internetissä, mutta voisitko kuitenkin käyttää tämän foorumin tavallista keskustelukieltä, englantia? Olet hämmentänyt viestilläsi monia nuorempia foorumin käyttäjiä, ja sehän ei kuulu tapoihisi!

Problem opening BoA scenarios in Tech Support
Shock Trooper

Try creating the folders for the scenarios yourself. For example, with A Visit to the Madhouse, I have the scenario in "Blades of Avernum\Blades of Avernum Scenarios\A Visit to the Madhouse(Win)", and it works fine.

All BoA scenarios are supposed to be in their separate folders in the "Blades of Avernum Scenarios" folder, and after checking the Madhouse zip file in Tyranicus's database, at least that archive seemed to be missing the actual scenario folder.

Try Rats Aplenty. It's the highest ranked scenario not made by TM or Kelandon, and is intended for levels 1-7 (I think).

Zebediah: Please avoid starting a new topic for everything you have to say. This could just as well have been posted in the poll thread in the Avernum trilogy forum.

Just one more comment on stove pricing:

Originally written by Thuryl:

You're right, I haven't. Every apartment and house around here comes already equipped with one, and to-date I've never even heard of one single stove or oven breaking down. But having done a little research on my end, I was able to find pretty decent brand name oven+stove combos for ?350 (essentially the same $500 mentioned earlier). In addition to that you'd probably need to install ventilation for it, which would cost ~?100 plus installation. Oh, and the stuff you gave a link to did have "designer" on each of the product names - obviously that cranks up the price.

They work fine for me, and I'm running 64-bit Vista. Dumb question: Are you sure you don't have "no sounds" checked in the preferences?

I know the card number was initially sent encrypted. The reason I gave the warning was in case AnarhIztok decided to be extra helpful with his email á là: "Hello, I just purchased game X with credit card no. XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, and forgot the expiration date, which is YY/ZZ. My name is John Doe." Now that would've been dumb.

Just don't give the card number out in the same email! Emails are unencrypted data, available to read for anyone with the required skills. Giving the expiration date, your name and explaining the situation should be sufficient.
