Re: Book 1 expansion?

BW asked me to get some modules to compile on the latest version of BlitzMax, which I did by cheating and finding updated versions of them on the web. Even then, and commenting out a bunch of non-essential code, he wasn't able to get Eschalon to build. So nothing too exciting, I'm afraid.

Re: Book 1 expansion?

As I said, I'd be willing to work on getting the code working on the latest BlitzMax.

I would hope that if we could get it to build, the benefit would be to let fans keep the games alive - release builds for recent OSes, port Book 1/2 to the Book 3 engine, support mods, etc.

Re: Geneforge 1 - Mutagen (Spiderweb Software)

As usual, I volunteer for source code wrangling if you're ever tempted ;)

Re: Speedrun

I didn't watch the whole thing, but it looks like this person makes heavy use of hide in shadows to avoid combat. They still have to kill two Goblin Warlords, though, which I didn't bother trying to find in the video to see how they did it. I guess the minimal process would be: Steal the crypt key G...

Re: Any modders still out there at it?

I had lots of cool ideas for mods, but I feel like it's just not possible to do much that's interesting without more mod support in the engine. New art, new characters, new enemies - all of that's not possible as the situation currently stands. I don't blame BW for not wanting to spend limited time ...

Re: Magic items that add damage.....

Just to attacks, not spells. They do affect unarmed attacks, though, and will cause them to damage enemies that resist non-magical attacks.

Re: Is it Possible to Cure Paul's Disease?

I was pretty sure the answer was no, but I checked the dialog files to be sure. No, you can't cure Paul.

Re: The Sanctum: Mod for powerful wizards

Awesome! So glad you enjoyed it. I had fun trying to figure out things the engine could do that hadn't been used in the main games before.

Re: Back on the series after a long time

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my Book III mod if you attempt it. You'll have to be a pure mage or near to it to have all the spells you'll need to get through.

Congrats! I'd love to see a screenshot of you surviving the dragon breath. I tried a max HP character but wasn't able to get high enough.

Never seen that, but also never tried using Turn Undead against him. Can you beat him without?
