I "accidentally" killed the slug before the request, and it showed an error. Plus the slug was still there. Then I killed it again, for real this time, after getting the 'quest' and the earrings were there. Using windows.

I guess my overall feeling so far is one of confusion. The text seems . . . odd. I've gotten as far as killing the ogres, but then got frustrated and decided to post this.

:(
Edit - well i managed to trigger the right effect and continued out of the cave.

All the new scenarios are great, but I have two words (or is it one?)

BETA TESTING...

Having said that, it's great to have some designers getting their stuff up and running.

Well, obviously these new scenarios have been released in a hurry in order to make the contest deadline. I hope that the designers take the time to do a proper beta test now, though.

Yea, I understand that, however, what are the chances of a scenario winning that cannot be finished, or is just plain buggy? Maybe I should have submitted my half finished scenario, and just made a crappy ending, it might have had a good chance...

Hey, they have a better chance entered as is than if they hadn't been entered at all.

True, but the one guy who sends in a completed scenario has an even better chance.

Actually, just ignore my stupid comments. This is obviously done by someone with little command over the english language, but it is way beyond what I could do in Finnish. And I'm managing to get through it, even though I've been dumb enough to post here while playing it out. *whaps self with mallet*

but yeah, beta test. it is a good thing.

Edit - having said that, i'm now trapped, probably my own stupidity again

This scenario is beyond what I could do in Finnish, but not in German. Nevertheless, this kid is in the seventh grade. For that, it's remarkable. It doesn't make "this market is out of order" or "I have cold" any more bizarre to read, unfortunately.

Anyway, I hit errors with that cave after the Vahnatai castle, but I'm not sure if I'm motivated to proceed. The Vahnatais are the bad guys, and they're shaping now? Please.

It really is a good scenario. I don't see all the ESL problems as being too significant. So the market is out of order. Well maybe it is. I will say the aesthetics are a cut above any other scenario to date. The towns and environment, just seem so much more real than most scenarios. An excellent first scenario which rivals many second or third scenarios.

Try this Arrna: Open the file t0stikk and change the line relocate_character(ME, 13, 46); to erase_char(ME); and then hit the slug.

But you get no error message? Or did you ever get any error messages? When you kill the slug do you get the "Stikk flies to a chimney" - message?

Edit: For some reason I too can't get the earrings now. It worked fine when I first played the scenario. Huh...

Edit2: Oh, I think I get it now! Arrna, you probably hit the slug too hard, meaning you did along the lines of 300+ plus damage. Am I right? The thing is if you kill the slug the script won't run, so just wound it a bit and see if that works.

how the heck do I just wound it a bit if my party is too strong? Do I need to make another new party?

set_char_unkillable would probably be needed to solve the problem

This call doesn't exist in BoA, only in G3. A workaround in this situation would be to put calls to give the earrings along with an erase_char (essentially, the 3rd to 7th lines of the START_STATE) in the DEAD_STATE.

Yo! I'm the author of this scenario and I have come see what you think of it.
You said you could not find Marcus? Have you looked through all three parts of the town Alexandra. The part you enter from north is the central part. Exit it to the east and you'll come to the east part. Marcus should be in the castle hall to the southwest.
What were the errors you encountered in Cave of Hira-Bok?
What is it that makes the scenario unfinishable?
You are right about that thing about beta-testing, but I was in a real hurry.
Does my poor English annoy you, or does it give you laughs?
Did I make this reply too long?!
