Like thunderstorms? Of course. Minus the power outage part, when that happens.
Ever stop using the computer? Sleep, food, hygeine, class, work... it'd be pretty hard to say no to this.

They will notice, at least - the rest of the world will suddenly become entirely unexplored, even if it's exactly the same.

This is really a minor quibble, though, especially if you're sure to make sure you cannot encounter the same encounter in the old world and the new world both.

If this is too much of a problem for you, or it would be too much of a hassle to implement the new world into your scenarios, drastically changing the terrain via script may be your only option.

TM says he wants in on this too. I think his e-mail is still terrorsmartyr@wi.rr.com, but it's in all of his scenarios anyway.

Mac betas are being sent out now. PC betas are pending a fix to a PC-specific crash bug.

TM is planning on sending out at least the Mac betas by the end of <s>today</s> Thursday, although he's been vexed by some strange problems with the PC version.

EDIT: PC BoA is hate.

Y'know, it's very questionable to me how the heck you would need to "beta test" items. They're not like... complicated, nor is it possible for them to be buggy or erroneous in ways that are not blatantly obvious.

TM's still working on it, and hopefully is almost finished - I was helping him debug one of the major bosses two days ago.

It's pretty safe to say that the... interesting combat that TM usually brings to the table will still be present in Echoes: Renegade.

From TM:

Terrain 393 apparently always makes a crunch noise when you step on it, regardless of what you set the terrain's sound to, as shown here:

begindefineterrain 390;
import = 293;
te_icon_adjust = 148;
te_step_sound = -1;
begindefineterrain 391;
import = 294;
te_icon_adjust = 148;
te_step_sound = -1;
begindefineterrain 392;
import = 295;
te_icon_adjust = 148;
te_step_sound = -1;
begindefineterrain 393;
import = 296;
te_icon_adjust = 14;
te_step_sound = -1;

TerrorsMartyr: Tell Kel to use a painting program with the magic wand; the only off-white pixels are of one color only, so one use of the magic wand tool should get them all.

Well, you could see if the problem is with your computer or with your profile by testing it out. If you can log in reliably as an account other than your main account, the problem would seem to rest with your account. If you can log into your account reliably from another computer, the problem would be with your computer.

Anyway, if you've got the ability to get it working even once on any computer, you should be able to save your buddy list to a file - or at the very least, write all of the names on it down on paper and load them into a different account by hand.

It seems that home.comcast.net/~kelandon4045 and home.comcast.net/~joanna_wiz have both been deleted, so only the scenarios located on home.comcast.net/~tom_05 are accessible.

Sorry, Saunders, but I wanted to respond to someone's earlier question.

quote:
Twenty people marching through different corners of the howling emptiness that is Valorim? Or if the virtual world is expanded, the other continents of Ermarian? Having to wait for a player on the other end of the continent to make their move is bad no matter how many people you have to wait for.

So when it comes to multi-player games, I'd take real-time over turns.
The original Neverwinter Nights did it by having turn-based combat only. Wandering about the world was not so restricted.

(I also think there was a limit to how long your turns could be, but it was rather long.)
