  1. Blades of Avernum unregistered? (GOG version)

    They responded! I had to install the app again by a different installer in the BoA application. Strange workaround, but it works, and I'm a happy man.
  2. Blades of Avernum unregistered? (GOG version)

    Alright, I sent them a report. Hopefully they can find a workaround.
  3. So I recently bought the Avernum saga on GOG, and while 1 and 3 took a little while to apply the correct Wine version (since GOG's were inaccurate), 2, 4, 5 and 6 worked just fine from the beginning. However, Blades has a very... unusual issue. While it boots up just fine, it's apparently an unregistered copy, effectively making it no better than the demo. I reinstalled it, didn't fix it: though I did notice that the "Welcome!" message didn't pop up again, making me think this might be fixable by removing the save data (if it's not stored in the game itself). Either way, I'd appreciate any input on how this could be fixed. Thanks in advance. EDIT: Also, I'm on a Mac. That probably also affects some things.
  4. Geneforge Mac Version?

    Hey, I know I'm late to this topic, but I feel like I might be able to help. Unfortunately, the Steam versions of Geneforge only work on Windows. This is because the Mac versions use a relatively old file system that Steam no longer supports. Pretty sad, but it's the truth. If you ask Jeff about it, he *might* supply you with a Mac key, but I wouldn't count on it. Worst case scenario, you'll have to buy the saga again on Mac for $30, which is IMHO still worth it for the whole series.
  5. Scripting and modding GF5

    Thank you too! I've been looking into game design for a long time, perhaps I may try my hands at some smaller mods as a way to get started after I learn how to code. The whole alternate sequel idea is a pipe dream of the highest degree, but one I may at least try. And of course I'll create smaller mods first. Those first two ideas seem very well possible, but I'm wondering; has anyone actually tried to add new classes into the game? Any major limitations, or is it possible to make whatever combination of stats you want?
  6. Scripting and modding GF5

    This kind of stuff definitely fascinates me, even if I will almost certainly never be able to do it myself. I've definitely brainstormed a lot of potential mods for if I ever wanted to get into coding. Stuff like rebalancing the games in various ways, adding new classes (Perhaps an outsider set of classes for 5? I've always liked the generic Mage and Soldier sprites, those could be made into Sorceress and Warrior alts.) and, albeit a very difficult idea that could very well be impossible, "what if" mods for the sequels that follow up on alternate endings from the previous games (Post Awakened/Barzite G3, anyone?). I hope that these games can attain an active modding community, the potential is definitely there; and as we've seen with your excellent mod, alhoon, enough quality to go around!
  7. Canon Endings

    Right, sorry. At the time, I thought I brought enough new to the table, but in hindsight I can see why this might be considered plagiarism. I'll try not to do something like this again.
  8. Geneforge 4 Mac Issues?

    The issue with my mouse hasn't happened again, so I think it was just a one time issue. Thanks for the info, Dorikas!
  9. Canon Endings

    Geneforge 1, there isn't really an exact match, but I'd guess destroying the Geneforge with noone using it, and killing the leader of the Obeyers. GF2 states that "the Obeyers were wiped out", but in the closest ending of 1, they aren't. So the only thing I can think of is that the player is the one who killed them off. Geneforge 2, either the unaligned or Zakary ending is canon. They both mostly fit with GF3's mentions of what happened in 2. Geneforge 3 is by far the hardest to figure out; but if I had to guess, the player played Shaper until the Isle of Spears (so Khyryk is alive) and then killed Rahul. I haven't tested if this ending is even possible, but it's the only way I can think of for Khyryk to live in a mostly Rebel canon. Geneforge 4, probably the stalemate ending, though the Rebel ending is close.
  10. Geneforge 4 Mac Issues?

    Hey! Long time lurker, now an official member of the forums. I've been a fan of the Geneforge series for a very long time, but after upgrading my main PC to Windows 8.1 a few years ago, the series had severe lag problems (which is a common issue as far as I know), and the common fixes didn't work, so I got the games again on Mac, and they've mostly been working fine. However, now that I'm replaying Geneforge 4, I'm having a few odd problems. For one, the cursor occasionally turns back into the normal cursor my Mac has, and the sprites for the creations on the creation making screen are over a distracting white background that clips over the edges of the normal borders; neither of these problems I remember having on Windows. In addition, none of the games appear to have the ability to view enemy HP. I've tried right clicking, command-clicking, and everything else I could think of, but it doesn't seem to be working. Was this added to the Win version, or is my version glitched? I bought the game from the Humble link on the Spiderweb website, if it makes any difference. Thanks in advance, & sorry for my potential noobishness. Hehe.
