Re: What *exactly* are the differences between the classes?

I'll inject a comment by saying I've never really liked the idea of "classes", especially in a RPG that is a solo adventure. I don't like systems that say "you're a wizard, so you can't possibly use this bow" or "your a fighter, so healing skills are a complete mystery to you". I like building a cus...

Re: Concept Art

Since I don't remember where I originally posted therm, here they are again. Basilisk Update 2016 from nearly two years ago. TY, PM. Yep, that fits the timeline well. * About 2 years ago (pretty much January 1, 2016) I had the design doc for TRP finished, concept art made, and Unity up and running....

Concept Art

A while back I posted some early concept art for what was to become "TRP". These images are outdated and have been replaced, so I don't refer to them anymore, but technically they do still represent areas in the game. Since I don't remember where I originally posted therm, here they are again. This ...

Re: a guide to setup eschalon book 1 on ubuntu 16.04 64bit

Great!! Glad it helped.

To anyone else that comes across this solution, it will likely work with all 3 Eschalon games since they all really use very similar engines.

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

CB - if you get a fix that works, make a new topic (separate from this one) that identifies the problem and gives a clear solution, and I will sticky it.

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

Hmm, I'm out of ideas.

The only thing I can do now is offer a bounty: I'll give a free Steam code to our next game ("TRP") to whomever finds a workaround / fix that gets Eschalon (1,2, & 3) to run on the latest version of Windows. The workaround needs to work for everyone, not just your computer.

... it's possible the Blitzmax engine isn't friendly with this type of storage medium (?).
Maybe. But, BlitzMax just rides on top of your OS and communicates via standard system protocols. The underlying code communicates with the filesystem just like any other piece of software, through the OS.

Well a quick Google search on "Windows 10 Steam read write error" reveals several recent posts:

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

The eb3.cfg gets dumped into the %APPDATA%\Basilisk Games\Book 3 Saved Games\ folder along with the save slots. If you delete it it'll act like a new install but that tmp folder seems to prevent it from doing anything else. So the way it works is, when you play your game, Eschalon writes all map & ...

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

I know where the files were installed. I tried running the .exe file as administrator, but nothing changed. I don't think an .ini file was created. Is there another way to switch to openGL? Um, no it's going to default for DirectX on a Windows machine unless it finds a OpenGL flag in the .ini, but ...

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

Hmmm...Bernie, can you run the .exe. as Adminstrator, see if that fixes it? (EDIT) Oh, sorry I misses the part where you said you tried it. Honestly, I do not have a Windows 10 machine in the office! :oops: I run Windows 8.1 and a Linux distro for all my development. I will probably get a copy of Wi...

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

Book 3's engine is essentially identical to Book 2, so I don't think it is a compatibility issue. I wonder if you could find where Steam installed the game, and run the .exe as "Administrator". It may be having a problem building the save-game folders or creating the initial .ini file. If you can fi...
