Re: Fans of Basilisk Games: What's Next?

I'm sorry to hear that revenue is down. I get what you are saying with the desire to avoid kickstarter, but if you ever change your mind, I'll be watching. I'd back anything by you in a heartbeat.

Re: Can't play on notebook computer...screen won't resize ap

What I had to do was go into the nVidia control panel (GeForce GT 240M) and tell it to keep the application's aspect ratio. So it comes up in the proper aspect ratio in fullscreen.

Re: Reveal Map spell-suggestion to change it.

Alright, I've read a few suggestions about how reveal map can replace the cartography skill, but unless I'm missing something it's a completely useless spell. Your character isn't smart enough to write down what the spell reveals! Duh! The spell cast at level 3 lasts 30 seconds and does a good enou...

Re: Seriously, I Just Don't Get Heavy Armor

Thanks everyone for your help. @ Anastasia, thanks. I can compare my current character to yours and see how they have diverged. With Bless I have about the same ToHit as you, when I equip a ring of Intense Focus (+5 CON). I focused on Endurance and added a few points to STR and CON taking them to 2...

DVD arrived today!

Woot,

The high-res teaser and the extra in that folder was amazing. I am probably not the only one who would absolutely love to see more of your world alive in 3D :-)

Soundtrack is gorgeous. Very glad I paid the extra for the DVD!

Re: mages and lore

Merchants generally will charge you 1/2 of the items value to identify it. You would need a hefty mercantile skill to make more money letting them identify items than just taking their lowball offer for the unidentified.

Re: Haven't received hard copy of game.

I think today was the estimated day that they would have them back ... then some time to put the packages together for shipping, and they will be shipped out in the order of purchase ...

Re: I'm so tough I don't have to eat (build spoilers)

I've actually found the Thirst and Hunger system to be a little less sever than expected. Forage is at 12 wearing 2 rings, and once in awhile I have to summon a bit of food and take a couple swigs of water. :-)

Re: what to do with copper bar?

Hello, First I'd like to say thank you to Basilisk Games for making such a great old-school CRPG... and one that I can play on my Mac, no less! I am wondering if there is something that can be done (other than just selling it) with a bar of copper? It sort of seems like the sort of thing a blacksmi...

Re: Make the towns more like Baldur's Gate!!

One of the biggest things that small indie dev teams have to watch out for is feature creep. I think for book 2, BW mentioned that a lot of tools were created to help make content generation easier ... so I think, book 2 sales allowing, book 3 will be massive. I'm really hoping for an editor also. T...

Re: Eschalon: Book II Adventure Editor pl0x

I believe that BW talked about releasing an editor with book 3, assuming the sales are strong enough from book 2 in order to fund the development of a book 3. While we all love the game, making enough of a profit developing indie games to keep developing them is something very few folks are able to ...

Re: So where are the portraits?

Is there any source for character portraits we can use to replace the vanilla characters that come with the game? When playing Balder's Gate and many other PC games there was a cottage industry of artists and game players that provided hundreds of portraits to choose from to portray your in-game pe...
