Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

Good point, I was on an old version since I rarely run my Windows 10 VM. After much updating, I'm on version 1709 build 16299.19, and I'm still seeing the same (normal) behavior: I can install the game, make a new character, save, load, exit, load, etc. Maybe the issue is that I'm on Windows 10 Ente...

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

If someone can give me a step-by-step to replicate the issue with a non-Steam version, I can probably work out what's going wrong.

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

I've been trying to replicate this with the non-Steam stand-alone version and haven't been able to. I installed Book III, created a new character, saved the game, and exited. Then I restarted the game and loaded the save twice. No crashes or anything unusual. Am I missing something, or is this only ...

Re: Game crashes on startup (Windows 10)

Yes, I acknowledge the calls to open source Eschalon but that is another long conversation with some legal twists, and I am not ready to address that yet.
Acknowledgement!

Re: Basilisk Update 2016

I recently had a dream that the new game came out but I was too busy to play it :(

Re: my current thief level 14 nefarious rouge

You may as well keep raising Dex. If you're not going for high MP or HP regen, it's probably your best use of stat points. Or maybe Strength if you want to wear heavier armor. The formula for lock pick success percent is skill * 3 + dex / 3 + 50 - lock quality * 10, and the highest level lock is 10....

Re: Quicksave Error

The shadowmirk_l1.ent file in your saved game is corrupted. If you remove it, you should be able to load your game with no negative side effects.

Re: Quicksave Error

Bad news, I'm afraid - all of the files in your saved game are full of zeroes, and no data. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing this same symptom once in the past, but certainly it's a rare bug. Sorry I can't recover anything for you.

Re: Quicksave Error

It sounds like you lost data because of the power failure. If you want to post your save directory, though, I'll see if I can do anything to make it work. I'm not sure where the saved games go in the GOG version - try searching your computer for the eschalon.cfg file. Then zip up that directory, upl...

Great to hear the RPG is coming along. I can't wait to play it! Maybe you'll need testers soon?

Re: A few thoughts from my latest play through

Well, at least it's open source. As soon as you release the Book I source, I'll take a look at fixing it ;)

Re: A few thoughts from my latest play through

For what it's worth, I also had some minor white squares issues on Linux in my last play through. I think I saw it mainly in the Hive Queen's lair.

Re: First time finished as a mage

That's what I do - 6 to start, actually, if you put 5 in then pick your class. I don't even get foraging, figuring I can learn Create Food before I run out of freely available food. But again, I'm sacrificing an easier early game for a stronger late-game character.
