  1. I remember having this problem during one of my playthroughs of the game. Not all of the beam control panels need to be activated, so that tripped me up. You have to look and make sure all the beams are making it to the middle. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but I know it's something that had me stuck.
  2. I have one of those ratios too. It changes as the game goes on. Early on, when money is tight, I'm more acceptable of the dungeon-to-town-to-dungeon-repeat loop than later in the game. I'm on my third replay of the original Avernums (in two years) and I find it harder to tolerate that "grind".
  3. Forum software update, bugs are expected
  4. Just sharing something that happened that I found quite amusing in Avernum 1. I was crossing a river with the Orb of Thralni and tried landing near a hut. The hut had giant fishermen. We talked and they wanted us to just leave. I make a mistake and didn't make it back to land again. I just find it so amusing to imagine all that from the giant's view point. Four strangers come over, floating in the air. You tell them to leave, and they do. While leaving they just drop from the air into the water and drown.
  5. I can't remember if it was the money that did it, I've gone back to being more on the rebels side now. I like that choices aren't so black and white in this game. I also like that just because you are given a quest, it doesn't mean you have to do it. I'm not sure if anyone would even care about stories of my adventures in this game, but I'll talk about what I've done a bit. I finally made it to Shaper Monarch and had a lot of trouble getting there and a lot of trouble dealing with him. I ended up looking at a guide twice. The first time I tried to avoid muc
  6. I'm feeling better now, I made a Drayk to replace my weak roamer. I also just ran to the South Grosch ruins and killed a big spawner thing. I keep forgetting that there are more than one way to get things done in this series of games. I like that I felt bad for some choices I've made. It's a rebellion and the game does a great job of making it feel like a real struggle.
  7. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood today, but the game has just been frustration and annoyance today. I made it to the fens and ran in to a few things. The golem swamp first. Running into the golem most likely means me or one of my creations will die. I can't do enough damage to feasibly kill it. Fair enough, maybe I'll just come back later. Then there are the fen zones with seemingly unending rogues. That is one of the thing I really don't like; endless spawning enemies. It is just frustrating to me. Up until this point it has been a great game. I really felt lik
  8. And I am back here. I just finished Geneforge 3. It has been the most rocky Spiderweb game for me to finish. I started it last year and only got halfway through it before dropping it for reasons. I started it back up again not too long ago. I made it to Dhonal (spelling?) Island and decided to start over because I felt like I messed up my build. I have a few thoughts on what I want to play next. Geneforge 4 could be a good choice, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to deal with more of the game's "odd" mechanics. It is tempting. Avadon 2. I have played the first
  9. I ended up starting to replay Nethergate. It's a bit jarring going from the newer engine back to the old one but I can cope with it. This time I'm trying out Torment difficulty. I've played all of the second Avernum trilogy, great games. I do want to revisit them and try out a harder difficulty. If only I had infinite time. Some day I will try the demo. Right now I can't afford to buy it if I ended up liking the demo. I also want to play the other games I've paid for but have yet to play.
  10. I'm new to Spiderweb games, at only a 1.76 years of playing them. I wound up playing the original Avernum 1 - 3 again and had a great time with revisiting those games. The plan was to replay Nethergate after that then jump into BoA. Instead I gave Escape From the Pit a try and had a good time. Since I already owned it, I played Crystal Souls next and that was a really good time. I just finished off Ruined World last night. Three great games and I'm a bit sad that I finished them. I'll probably replay them at some point. Now I have to decide what I want to play next. I w
  11. Ah yep, I thought maybe the game was applying the colours to the base green sprites, so that's why changing that setting came to mind. The game looks so much nicer now too! I don't know how I managed to get this far playing these games with that setting turned down.
  12. Okay, this is really weird then. In game, all those slimes are the same green colour and I am indeed talking about the Krizsan slims. In the game folders, sprite sheets G1890.png to G1896.png are all green. I'm running the Steam version and it is version 103. I just tried validating the files and that went fine. Edit: Oh, I figured it out. I had one of the graphics settings set to "don't draw". Setting it to draw all gives me nice and colourful slimes. Too bad I'm done with the slimes now though.
  13. It greatly annoys me that all the slimes in this A3 remake are the same green colour. I tried a little bit to figure out how the sprite sheets work so I can colourize the slimes, but haven't had much luck so far. Anyone have any tips on how to do this or is it even possible?
  14. I run the newer games cooler by making a custom power plan and lowering max CPU%. I haven't had any issues doing this but it is a bit annoying.
  15. I'll be trying out the demo for sure. I'm in the middle of replaying OG Avernum 3 and have a vacation coming up, so buying the game will have to wait. Still excited for this release though.
