Re: Eschalon Book 2 Crashes & Exits at Westwillow Crossing….

So yeah, I definitely do have that problem as well on my end. How does your diskspace look? Had you used up your whole harddrive at some point? One problem would be that the savegame slot is missing the minimap graphic file for westwillow (those are the ones with the "opq" extension), which I think ...

Re: Eschalon Book 2 Crashes & Exits at Westwillow Crossing….

I still have version 1.04. I guess this is WAYYYYY out dated, and probably the cause for this sudden crash!! The latest version is just 1.05, so you're not too behind, though 1.05 was a pretty big update (included a lot of new content, etc). I'm not sure if that'd actually be the cause or not; as I...

Re: Eschalon Book 2 Crashes & Exits at Westwillow Crossing….

I am playing again after a while, and suddenly when I try to leave the dungeon under Iron Pool Dam, crossing over to Westwillow the game suddenly crashes and exits. :shock: Hey there - I don't have a Mac, but if you wanted to upload the savegame right before the crash, I could see if I could reprod...

I think I am losing it compared to this fast paced world. DubTeaEff does UTC mean... down in the bottom right corner... something about time... can anyone teach me?

Re: Eschalon: Book III Version 1.021

Like with Book I, I'll be very quiet on this for a long time (think a year or two). I just work better when I'm not worried about fan reaction to screenshots or lack of news. I can only speak for myself, of course, but I actually tend to prefer that method too. The recent "Early Access" trends (inc...

Re: sparrow and true healer

Current quest still says talk to Sparrow but she wants to kill me and I am trying for true healer award at end. I think I recall I have to get the Crux and then return to the Forsaken Coast before Mr Wiz will talk to me about the witches' secret weapon You could probably talk to Sparrow and then ju...

Re: sparrow and true healer

Hmmm, I thought so. I have done all that you stated and still no registration from said wizard. I will attempt to go back and try all three again, but that is very odd and I always tout here how my memory is going away but I truly think I have done all that. Not a biggie. I will just grind through ...

Re: sparrow and true healer

I cannot recall how to get the wizard's help in the Forsaken Coast hideaway. He is not talking to me to ask the witches for their help. What step(s) did I forget??? The Quest list over at the wiki might be of some use... You can look at your open quests to see where you're at. The steps seem to be:...

Re: Eschalon: Book III Version 1.021

(stuff) Now now. Let's all be the bigger person, here. It does indeed sound like the update hadn't actually been pushed to Steam yet, so in this case we probably can't blame Steam for the delay. At the same time, it had been reasonable to assume that Steam could have been the culprit here, since we...

Re: Any way to turn sounds off?

Thank you xolotl. If I would have started another thread, I would have been chastised even more for that. No winning with some people. Naw, these forums are quite friendly. Nobody would've complained either way. :) I was just blathering and apparently shouldn't have mentioned it in the first place!

Oh, yeah, sorry - didn't mean to imply that you were. I was actually only referring to other forums that I've seen around the internet where posting in old threads is met with hostility. :)

Re: Any way to turn sounds off?

I know this is a MASSIVE necropost this thread is now a double-zombie! Relatedly (though off-topic), I have never understood some forums' hostility towards "necroposting." Like, why wouldn't you continue to post in a topic that's apropos of what you wanted to talk about? Why have two separate posts...

Re: Eschalon: Book III Version 1.021

I wish these forums had RSS support - then you could just subscribe to the relevant thread. Sadly, that's not the case, and justifiably way low on BW's list of priorities. Well, on the other hand, the forum does have the ability to "subscribe" to a topic, which'll send you an email when the relevan...

Re: Would you purchase the soundtrack if it was available?

For modders: I am okay with the possibility of doing an "experimental branch" where I make a Windows-based version with new modding abilities. This would only be for a few trusted people to work with- but that's the problem- most of the modding people don't use Windows and it's a lot of work to com...

Re: Semi-official bug tracking thread (SPOILERS)

I will follow up on the link, thanks xolotl (what does that stand for anyway?) No problem, good luck. "Xolotl" is a pretty presumptuous handle, actually: it's an Aztec god of lightning and death . In the end I'd have preferred to use a fully-unique name, but I've got this name in a number of places...
