I won't say how old I am. But I did vote. Revealing my age would be...odd...

I prefer to say 'bar' rather than repeating. I remember all those tiny little math things you learn in elementary school. Heck, I first heard about fractals in FIFTH GRADE!!! Now, I study fractals vigorosly.

I think that if you asked Jeff, you could get a discount on the Avernum Trilogy disc. I am not sure about Geneforge discounts, though, so you may have to just buy them all individually.

You wouldn't happen to be using the character editor to up your stats would you? It seems very difficult to kill Bel without cheating.

N:R Not working at all&Laptop exploding battery in Tech Support
Warrior

Actually, it's battery recently exploded even though it isn't a recall model. I think some acid may have leaked into the computer or something, because even with the new battery, it gets incredibly hot incredibly fast. I will be back in America really soon to try and fix it, for there may be a real problem. There aren't many good Apple specialists in Paris.

Luckily, this isn't my home computer, and it may be covered by BYU for their faulty program computer that is only 10.0. They probably won't ever replace it, sadly. What I mean is, I had to use the Intel laptop because of their dumb computer.

Topic change: it is shifting to the laptop now.

I don't use windows, but try running it in compatibility mode. That can help with weird problems sometimes.

Toshiba Games... in General

I found out about Spiderweb through Avernum by an old MacAddict disc when they still had some good games.

Edit: This whole Toshiba thing has to be illegal (if it's not, my life is a dream) because they didn't even cite Spiderweb. It'll probably be in the game, but still!

I believe the only really simple way would be to change the get_reward of an easy quest you're working on. Add something like the ability-giving scripts in the canister area. I don't know the specific thing, just search the scripts for the canister area.

If you meant to say fourth island, than you need to get two crystals in the Shaping Vats area and another one near it (forgot name, sorry).

If not, then the area name is needed. Or have you just never gotten into those shaping caves below the major fort? :P

Ah well. That's ok. I will be back to my more modern 10.4 computer at home in four days, so I need not worry. I was just hoping to play it before then. But thanks for the help!

I'm afraid so. Classic seems not to work on this computer. When I launch it, an error dialog comes up that says that the application HotBurn AutoLaunch failed to launch because of a shared library error. I tried with sharing on and off with no effect. I've tried everything I can think of with these limited resources.

Because of my hideous computer you may have heard about, N:R doesn't work in any way shape or form. It is Mac OS 10.0.4 (Build 4Q12) Memory 256 MB (everything is sorted out with memory. I really have something like one gig virtual memory.) Processer Power PC G3. Neither the normal nor the older mac version work.

I downloaded it on a good computer and mounted it to a flash drive to put it on the only computer I can always use. The good one is Intel and needs to rest it's processers a lot and recently had serious battery problems, ergo, I can't really play N:R on it and must use this horrible, bug-infested, digitally moldy computer. Is there any way on Earth to fix this hideous bug?!?!

Deleting Non-Spiderweb Games Forums in General

I have tried downloading Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc. but IE is determined to not let me replace it! Everything I download is a .dmg which this Mac 10.0.4 OS X computer has serious problems mounting to the disk. I even tried mounting it to a flash drive on another computer and transferring it to this one, but when I ran the application, all I got was the icon bouncing in the dock and stopping.

I am stuck until I get home to my better computer. At least I can still access this board, but that's about it. The other computer here is in high demand but is Intel so has to rest it's processers a lot. But that's ok.

To stay on topic, I don't want any more delays of deleting the old forums. They are just causing trouble. I say: Destroy them now!!! But I know that won't happen.

No, no. I think there is another abbyss somewhere in that dungeon. I tried jumping it, but my Celts all died. I haven't yet gotten there with my Roman due to freaky computer problems. I can't look it up right now, but I will tell you when I can. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

P.S. Thanks for the help! I started a new Roman that was much better. He's doing fine.

Every time I enter this topic, everyone's posts get all inflammed and long! I have to scroll over to read the whole thing. I'm convinced that the UBB is eating itself. This has become the Ouroborus board! Sometimes mellow, sometimes chaotic.

EDIT: Just saw your error Ephesos! That is outrageous! I wish I got errors like that on this junky computer.

How about some Player Reviews... in Nethergate
Warrior
Member # 8872

Hmmm. Tough question. In terms of world size, of course not, because as with the beloved older engines, you can hold down the mouse button to travel the world at high speed.

In terms of quests, I would think there might be a bit less or a bit more that A4.

In terms of play time, for me, much more. I have grown very meticulous, always wanting to complete EVERY quest. If you aren't like that, than a bit less because of outdoor travel time.

If you want ultra-specific answers, maybe Synergy or some other powergamer will have compiled a list. Although that seems like a slight waste of time to me.

:P
