I think he's talking about erasing a character within the context of the editor, not with a script.

Why not make something that involves what happening at the same time as one of the 3 games?

I downloaded but it won't start. It says that it is "either damaged or doesn't work with this type of computer" to which I was like: "Huh?" I have Mac OS 9.2.2

Continuity Questions in Blades of Avernum

Thank you for all of this information. No, I don't plan on recreating an entire continent, merely referring to it (and merely referring to most of this information).

And as far as those history threads are concerned, I tried reading them when they were being written and they were confusing. :P

1. Had Avernum been discovered when Emperor Stewart was reigning or was it discovered afterwards?
2. Had the empire always had a strict racial cleansing policy or was that adopted at a specific point in time?
3. What is the name of the main laguage of the empire (ie. our English)?
4. During whose reign was the world officially united?
5. Who was Stewart's successor or is it not indicated?
6a. Of which continent is Skylark Vale a part?
b. Is there a basic map of the continent itself?

I think that that's it... merci.

Is BOA playable with less than 4 pc party? in Blades of Avernum
Warrior

Yes it's possible; I did it with a 2pc party. In fact, it was "Torment" difficulty. Indeed, at times, it seemed like torment since I often times just was not able to a whole lot in a round. But it is possible.

Btw, I've always been told that you shouldn't compress files that have already been compressed because there is the very probable liklihood that the double-compressed will become garbled.

EDIT: originally said "should". oops.

Since skills will not be able to be raised all that quickly, ought you allow the player to buy training in various skills? Or perhaps provide knowledge brews either for sale or for rewards? These are thoughts..

That's very helpful, spyder. :D

As a sort of a follow up question: what about a call with parentheses and a "short" within them, say.. *picks a random call in the appendix*
void set_incidental_sound(short on_or_off) what is with the "shorts" on the interiors of many calls' parentheses? What do I do with them?

EDIT: coreyh, sadly I am a college student and am not able to do everything. Otherwise, I probably would read about C. :cool:

Perhaps it is because I am such a neophyte to the world of programming, but it doesn't seem to be made clear whether or not one should type the words "void" and "short" as they are shown in the Documentation and Appendix. My first thought is "no" since they are not connected to the calls by underscores but, then again, they are shown with every single call and it is never explained outright whether they are needed (though it is explained what they mean).

Custom Items/Graphix... Oui. in Blades of Avernum Editor
Warrior

"it_icon_adjust" is how you want the game (BoA) to interpret the graphic that you choose. If you played the sample scenarios, you saw some color variants of some different graphics, or they were darker, lighter, tinted, inverted, color-swapped, etc (or a combination of a couple). That's what that it is. It just doesn't show up in the editor unless you also use "it_ed_icon_adjust". If it is not called or left at -1 I believe that no adjustment is made. (Similar calls are "cr_icon_adjust", "fl_icon_adjust", and "te_icon_adjust".)

(This information is dependant on whether I have read the instructions correctly.)

In my email, Yahoo is pretty good at deciphering what is spam and what is not and what is spam is redirected into the bulk box. But recently, I have been getting about 40 spams in my junk box a day! I'm not sure what this new trend is about, but it's kind of unnerving.
