Re: Eschalon BK2 Crashes Laptop on Exit

I'm new to Linux, how do I open Terminal (console) when I do not have normal access? Keyboard shortcut?

How do I kill the process?

Re: Audio Driver in Linux Mint

OK, figured out how to get sound in Linux Mint 10

Loaded the DEV package for OpenAL (libopenal-dev).

Now the Audio Driver list includes many additional options including the OpenAL for Pulseaudio, which works.

Now have sound for Eschalon Book II :D

Audio Driver in Linux Mint

OK, just installed Exchalon Book 2 on my Linux Mint 10 laptop. Runs fine EXCEPT no sound :( Selecting any of the FreeAudio drivers does NOT work. Note that local CFG file says FreeAudio for the driver. Please, I see all the posts on Pulseaudio "wrappers" (whatever that is). For us Linux dummies, ple...

Re: Compendium of Locations (MASSIVE SPOILER)

This is a massive spoiler so if you don't want to know then leave now. This is a compendium of every container found in the game, both fixed items and random ones. If nothing is listed after the container then it means it's always or usually empty and I've never seen anything there. Some items are ...

Re: Save/Load rules

Book-2 save-games are in ( WinXP ) C:\Documents and Settings\ your-profile-name \Application Data\Basilisk By the way, I tried changing the save-game location via the base CFG file, but could not get it to work. Looks like the engineers use non-Windows standard coding that does not accommodate space...

Magic Trainers?

OK, looking at magic.

There are trainers for many skills, but I can't find trainers for magic.

Are three magic trainers or books to pump-up skill points?

I would like a full size crossbow, including several grades with the higher grades having better hit + damage points. Same for the bolts. In the real world, bolts do more damage than arrows, mainly because of the power of crossbows in general. The advantage of bows & arrows in the real world is dist...

Then there's the option of having Mark & Recall magic spells like Morrowind & Oblivion.

The only change I would make, is you buy/acquire both spells at the same time, as a set.

Some are requesting "party" play for Book II.

One of the things I really like about Eschalon Book I is not having party play :P

Suggestion that would please both views, have party-play as a game option.

I am also woundering if in book2 you'll be able to import your character from book 1?
NOTE: They would first have to update Book I to include saving your character.

Otherwise, good idea :P

Thanks for the quick reply, but I already printed that map.

So?!!!

Shadowmirk is in the North-East corner but it shows only the front-entrance bridge.

Is the "back door" one of the gray buildings south of Shadowmirk?

I'm guessing it's a teleporting.....wait a second...is it that traitor priest, his house...portal!?!? Gotta try that! Nope. It's easier than that. If the front door's locked... - Ash Back door? What back door? To have a back door you have to get around Shadowmirk. Also, must have missed it, what "t...

You have your opinion, but I did not see your info in the manual. May have missed it.

But thanks for the answer, it's what I was looking for :D

I've been playing Eschalon B1 (full version) for a few days now and find it very addicting and fun to play :D Eschalon B1 reminds me of another RPG I play, Gothic II , but with a better interface IMHO.
