Re: Who wants to help test "The Secret of Fathamurk"?

How do you figure? I've run the Linux version over several versions, and the only bug I got bit by was the Eastwillow case sensitivity one. For starters, it only worked on the very last distro of Ubuntu and I had to upgrade. And yes, there were case sensitivity issues and issues with quick slots no...

Re: Who wants to help test "The Secret of Fathamurk"?

I'll admit that I'm salivating over the thought of playing a Fallout sequel developed by some of the original crew I have some bad feeling about what will come up out of Obsidian. After all they are known for creating crappy sequels (unfinished plot in KOTORII, NWN2,...). So, Escahalon definitely w...

Re: Who wants to help test "The Secret of Fathamurk"?

I will definitely give it at try when you build the Linux version. Beta or not, Linux version was a bit broken at the beginning anyway ;)

Re: Fun with Powderkegs! (Spoilers)

The next step, of course, is to zip through Talushorn Level 4 without actually killing anything yourself, and then use this trick to try and drag Korren out to the main area to do the killing for you. The same technique is probably even more useful for the upcoming expansion in 1.05. It allows you ...

Got the same bug

but fortunately I had a portal set in my house near the chest. Now I am slowly selling some 65K of these widgets. It looks like all generic traders take them and it surely beats selling food because I don't have to click that much.

Re: Doesn't run on Ubuntu Jaunty 64b bit

I finally upgraded the distro and I must admit that it is much better than I expected :) At least they fixed most things that were bugging me in 9.04 which is cool. And, EB II runs like a charm. One thing I noticed when moving over my windows save game is that some areas got reset, presumably becaus...

Re: Will there be a build with lower glibc requirements ?

I think it would be a safer bet to upgrade the distro. Right now I can't play book II because I have too much stuff on my plate as well and just can't afford a borked laptop because of the upgrade.

Re: Doesn't run on Ubuntu Jaunty 64b bit

Jaunty is on 2.9 and this is probably why it doesn't work. Do I have to upgrade my distro to play? It suxxxx :(

Doesn't run on Ubuntu Jaunty 64b bit

I'm getting this error:

$./eschalon_book_2
./eschalon_book_2: /lib32/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by ./eschalon_book_2)

I'm trying to figure out what package is missing right now.

Any chance to get a staticallly linked executable btw?

Re: Feedback

If you are moving silently AND either hidden in shadows or invisible, creatures will not notice you. I remember happily bashing either a wolf or some other creature with the Flame Dart spell while having only "Silent" status with no invisibility or "Hidden in Shadows" tag present...
