There's a small glitch with the Heart of Thakta. I sent you a PM with the details.

Sorry for the double-post and the topic revival, but when is this scenario coming out?

About a month from now, around the end of November. Purely by coincidence, of course. :P

I mean, it's already "out" in the sense that people can play it all they want, and it's not going to look enormously different when it's officially released. It's "not out" in the sense that I'm still going to re-work several things before I call it "done," and I don't want it on CSR yet.

It would be done already had work not mounted up with such a fury over the past couple months. I should get some free time in the not-too-distant future to work on it again.

New version up. Still only small changes.

Apologies to testers who sent in reports nearly three weeks ago to whom I just now replied. I realize that it's been a while, but I wasn't really able to devote a several-hour block to bug-fixing until tonight.

I sent you a new PM regarding the Necklace of Thakta.

GAH

New version up. It's basically ready for release except for some testing of the last few towns (Peninsula area and Land of the Dead) and finishing the walkthrough. That should be done by the end of the week.

I'd be much obliged if some friendly Windows BoA user could tell me if the Windows custom graphics are still screwed up.

Oh yeah, and debug mode is enabled. I know, and it'll be taken out for the final version.

I'm not sure what you mean by screwed up, but everything seems to be in order. Frahmann's slith graphics no longer have off-white all over them, and those cave floors aren't as hideous anymore.

Heh. I thought they were supposed to look like that. :P

I ran through it again, and encountered no problems. It's ready to go.

It's up on Shadow Vale now too.

Edit: It's nice to be famous. :P

Walkthrough posted at TrueSite. Refreshing may be needed.

So, Kelandon, I don't know what's up with me, the Bahssikava series, and unhandled exceptions, but I just got one in Exodus.

It happened in Thanopolen Tower during the cutscene after killing the chief. It worked fine before that point. I haven't tried redownloading or even replaying the fight, but from my experience with the ones I got in Bahssikava, they occur consistently. I'm running Windows XP. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem?

Fortunately, the scenario still looks like it can be completed. Dikiyoba left the tower before the combat, set a SDF manually, and walked back to camp. The scenario has been progressing normally from there.

What it is is that I'm a designer on a Mac and you're a player on Windows. That almost invariably causes Unhandled Exceptions. :P

I have not heard of such an issue from anyone else, but that doesn't mean that it won't happen for others. If you can send me a save file right before it occurs, I can try to fix it. Otherwise I'm not sure that I can do anything.
