Avernum or Exile IV,anyone still play the exile series

22 posts in this topic

In my opinion i wish the company wouldve continued the story as Exile IV but now its avernum 4 (avernum trilogy) as i liked the 2D graphics, was easy and simple, now its 3D, and does anyone still play the Exile Series

I've been replaying the Exile series as a personal project, actually. Exile 2 is one of my favorite games, E3 is also real great (I kinda hate the plot though :/), and I've been playing E1 for the first time lately.

 

In a way Nethergate is kind of like a spiritual successor to the Exiles; it continues themes from E2/E3 which weren't exactly continued in A4.

Playing Blades atm. Have Exile 3 installed and ready to lay, but Blades has some things I prefer. Ironically, 3 has some things I prefer too. :) The all-inclusive, all-in-one world vs lots of little ones mostly. But a big part fo the allure of these games is exploration and discovery. Now that I've played through 3 so many times it's like ya need an Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind service to zap those memories from ya so you can re-discover it all. :) Why Blades is more alluring. User-made content's great, new, if frustrating. Only knock about it might be how much of what's in the game isn't in the stock 3 missions. Highest level spells for example, and some of the glitches about inpermanance of items in some of the best scenarios (FS this means you.) :)

This isn't exactly the right place for BoE discussion, but... you can go to this post and download it. There's no setup.exe in that package; you need 7-zip to extract it, and if you get DLL errors you'll need to run the VCRedist installer. Also, the Windows version won't work on anything earlier than XP (and probably not even on XP). The Mac version is Intel-only.

Like I said, you can download 7-zip to extract it. Though I suppose I could also make a conventional zip-file, if that's easier.

I fully intend to play through the Exile series at least once (though I might skip the first one). I haven't gotten around to it yet, though. I suppose it might've been nice if he'd continued it instead of remaking it, but I don't really mind the Avernum series either. It has some downsides (only four party members, for example), but it's also better in some ways.

i never got into the Exile 1 either. i started out with Exile 3 and moved on to exile 2. but by the time i went to exile 1 the graphics and game engine were such a big step back that i couldn't play it for more than ten minutes.

I liked having 6 player characters too, cus then i could still use the original names, what i dont like with avernmum is its 3D which would mean we will have hard times with the camera view. Like cant see if ur behind a wall. Thats why i like the 2D . Like paper mario and of course the Exile I-III series

Also having three tanks blocking off enemies while three mage/priests rain down death is great.

Switching over to four characters was a real change and needed big adjustments in tactics

exile 1 is okay, but exile 2 is a way, way better game. i don't regret playing it but avernum 1 was more fun for me - there's some crude stuff about the interface, gameplay, and plot that gets way better later in the series.

Bit of an old topic, but yeah, I've just rediscovered my Trilogy CD and am playing my way through Exile 1 once again. It's been great fun so far. Looking forward to II and III later. :)

Try winrar for opening zip files

In this case it's a 7z file.

WinRAR can open 7z files as well.

This topic is really old yea lol, i ahvent been on the forum for a long while up until i now started playing Blades of Exile again,

 

 

6 Characters is best, in Exile 3, idk why they would have to make it 4 >.>.

 

In dungeons with stretch tables that go accross the room, leaving 1 open speace of movement on the ends by the wall

 

2 characters to block the pathways and 3 magicians to throw magic over the table, Good way to do things
