Man, I hate that! I quit using some sound and art programs, not just games, because the companies adopted that system of copy protection.

Re: Registration the way others do it...?

As long the the code still works without having to "call home" when re-installing (especially if I get a new computer) it's fine with me. I think Spiderweb's system works fine. It is nice to be able to just download the new version from the website, put in the old code to unlock the full version, an...

Re: Eschalon: Book I Version 1.05 FULL

Why would you put saved games in a hidden folder (it would be hidden under Mac OS X, too)? This would make it very easy for someone to leave saved game files on your hard drive after deleting the game, using up space, unknowingly. Just dis a search on my hard drive. It looks like, on the Mac, the ga...

Re: Eschalon: Book I Version 1.05 FULL

I had a problem downloading the new Mac version from the link Plimus sent (probably because of the extra step in the link URL from Plimus--the link they send is not the actual download link, but forwards to it, I think). I was getting a page of what looked like machine code in a browser window, rath...

Re: Savefile Character Editor

I extended your work Great, thanks for the changes! I've got a list of stuff I want to do for an official 0.3 release, and I'll be sure to merge in the stuff that you've done as well. Unfortunately it'll probably be a good three weeks before I'll be able to get around to it, due to impending weddin...

Re: Female vs male character attributes and skills

Well, I hate to write this, but this thread has taken away the joy of anticipating the new game. It's gotten ugly, at times, and the attitudes of some of the people have surprised me, although they probably shouldn't have. And as a woman who almost constantly has to put up with unfair discriminatory...

Cool! According to the system specs, it should even work on my G4. I'll give it a try. :)

Re: Female vs male character attributes and skills

Bad decision. Wow. So, you want no bonuses whatsoever rather than a free attribute point that most anthropologists and biologists would agree with?? I am not sure I understand why. :? We make games for the people , so if the majority doesn't want a bonus, we'll remove it. Won't hurt my feelings! :D...

Re: Female vs male character attributes and skills

As a woman, I am disappointed by the different stats for the sexes being programmed into the game. If a player perceives differences between the sexes and wants to represent them in the stats s/he gives the characters, fine. Let them play the game the way they want to. I hate when the game forces se...

Re: Reccomendations, please =)

It's not turn-based, though... Maybe you should try the Heroes of Might and Magic games (most of them are out of print, though, because 3DO went under). Not really RPGs, but sounds somewhat like what you are looking for.

Re: Lost the use of my Spells

Yep, exactly what Dragonlady wrote!

As for instruction, there should be a file in your game folder called:
Eschalon Players Manual.pdf
and also a file called:
Help.html

Re: Lost the use of my Spells

Have you tried setting them to different slot numbers? I vaguely remember having some sort of problem with slot one where it would get overwritten automatically for some reason, but I don't remember the details... I have the Mac version, though.
