Re: Rangers - What's the Best Approach?

Well, I've always said there is nothing an agnostic can't do when he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not. :D

Got it downloaded. Haven't checked it out, but I have some vacation time coming up. This is good news. It's pretty amazing what they've done.

I donated to the CO8 folks $10 paypal bucks.

Here, here. If the company isn't inclined to bother with their games, then why should I feel guilty? If they were enterprising and ambitious, they could re-release these games if they were good enough. Heck, they could put Heroes of Might and Magic 1 or Star Control 2 or Xcom or Transport Tycoon 1 o...

I think it needs to be 5 for water, because it will do shore lines when I wear scout's sandal's About number 5, Crap, I done sold that thing to some merchant. Mayb...

Stuck in trees, traveling from Barron's Thicket to Vela

Forgive me if this has been addressed. I did a search and didn't find anything right off the bat. When traveling from east to west from Barron's Thicket to Vela there are two routes. The one on the bottom of the map is safe but the other will trap you in a copse of trees, unable to move back east. T...

I loved those games too. You think it would be a chore, but the planning and managing was a fun part of the game. - Maybe a time limit and a dynamic world that gets worse the more you dawdle. Like the Blight creeping over the land in MCIII. - Hunting for food and profit. Maybe not food but selling h...

That would be rad!

When I was a young lad, I remember drawing pictures of the perfect, underground lair much like this. All you need now is a rocket propelled car, robot servants and some SAM launchers.

I was thinking about that very thing today. I mean your rough-housing about on your quest, you think you would lose some things to breakage. But then you could also say they are in some small, toughened gourds or leather wineskins too. I like the idea mentioned of small, beaker type potions too beca...

I've recently discovered the joys of JoyToKey and using a gamepad to play this game. Check out my how-to thread: http://www.basiliskgames.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1078 This is really the way to go.

There are some great fan made mods that fix bugs and also add new content, such as some higher level dungeons. http://www.co8.org/forum/ Takes some navigating but the goodies are there if you want them. edit: wo...

Small bug - Abygale the shopkeeper moved from original spot.

Hey devs, found a small problem with Abygale or, potentially, any shopkeeper. The story... One day my Ranger dude was camping just outside of Ariel like some two-bit vagrant. He was ambushed by some no-goodniks and ran off like a wee girl towards the nearest guard. After the foes we vanquished he we...

If you could merge NWN2's storyline with TOEE's combat .. you would have a game that could rival BG2. That would be awesome. Think of an Underdark adventure with this engine. I agree, the story is pretty meh. It does seem like a showcase for monsters and the voice acting is quite subpar. They are d...
