Ok, let's be honest. Almost all of us use cheats once in a while, especially in games such as the Geneforge series where is really easy to get stuck. So the questions are, do you cheat and do you do it a lot?

Well, if you count “exitzone” as cheating, than I do.

Honestly? I have never cheated in any Geneforge game. I have taken advantage of the Quicksave and in-game bugs, but never cheated. Game is too easy on Normal anyway, no need to cheat.

Well, I also find from a personal basis that I play games that also don't allow for cheating to occur without serious effort on the user's end to make it happen. Less chance of it occuring, the more fun it is, which is partly why I still favor Starcraft over all other older games.

I once used "dbugkill" and "exitzone" in every single area in GF1 and became about as strong as a charged thahd...and I had used the Geneforge. But when I went through every area without cheats and explored thoroughly, I made it to lvl. 26, snatched all the best items, and had 300 HP. Cheating was then out of the question.

It would be quite interesting if this poll actually got a high volume of responses. Those of us who can't see the point of cheating have the impression that hardly anyone else does either; apparently those who cheat all the time have the impression that everyone else does too.

I never cheat until after the game is finished, then I may use "iwanttobestronger" to gain a level or two just for the heck of it. I usually play on "Tricky" and the game is not hard enough to make cheating a necessity.

No I never do. Cheating is only fun when you've already finished the game once or twice.

As someone who used to cheat compulsively and is now a purist about such things (at least most of the time), I guess I can see both sides of the issue. Now I only cheat where a game's gameplay has turned into frustrating tedium and I just want to see how it ends. (Even then, I've developed a pretty high tolerance for frustrating tedium.)

I must admit, though, I still duplicate my savefiles in roguelikes.

Some *bands don't have an explore mode. And in the others, it's pretty easy to effectively bugger yourself up irreversibly even with the option to cheat death.

Sometimes. In the past I've hex-edited my skill points up. Currently, I've managed to *misplace* the book "Meeting the Sholai", and so am trying to hex-edit it back, and am making a list of all of the items in the game.

Has anyone seen in the game a "Puresteel Soulblade" or "Gazer Skin Boots?"? Where can they be found legitimately?

The Puresteel Soulblade is dropped by one of the Shambling Rotbeasts in the north-center of Monastery Caves. I did get some Gazer Skin Boots, but I'm not sure where ... Maybe Omen Eye, in Maker's End?

There are Gazer Skin sandals when you kill Tigh Eye in Beneri-Eo Labs, I'm pretty sure. For rebels, there's also a pair in Chadwick Prison according to the guidebook.

That's where I got 'em -- there is a deranged gazer in a cell in Chadwick Prison.

Please don't make the exact same post in multiple topics. We heard you the first time.

Definitely no. On this forum, there is little enough traffic that people follow boards, not just threads, so everyone who reads one GF3 thread reads every other GF3 thread, too.

It wouldn't be quite so bad if that post made any sense.

You don't need to cheat. Maybe if you're a lowly shalper, but not if you're an agent. (Thats one of the reasons I'm not a Shaper). I strongly dissagree with cheating, and I find it totally pointless, and that it ruins the game. I used to cheat once or twice years and years ago, but not anymore. It's not fun playing a computer game where you know you can't be hurt etc...
