  1. TheKian's G1 PC Assessment

    Jeff said he hopes to do the remake in two years. *sniggers at the thought*
  2. Complete Exile 2 outdoor map (massive spoilers)

    Some users have it set up to automatically send them an email when they get a PM.
  3. Leveling Intelligence

    About halfway through the game, there is an NPC you can talk to that lets you retrain your characters. You can reassign all your points if you aren't happy with the way you built them. It resets the character to level 1, but you now have all the points you gained that can be added. Shaman is funny it that one of the best spells is based off Dexterity instead of Intelligence. Intelligence is still important, but it depends upon whether you want to emphasize attack spells or summoning animals to help you fight. Endurance is more important because a Shaman has the worst armor and resistances of any class. So even with the most health points, you take more damage.
  4. Leveling Intelligence

    Intelligence gives the to hit for spells. It also increases the damage level. Upgrading from an apprentice rod to a better rod or staff also increases the damage level. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. Rational thought only interferes with your understanding.
  5. You get slightly less experience per character when you have more characters in the party, but the extra damage and abilities are well worth it.
  6. The Grand Spiderweb Poll, 2017 Edition: Demographics & Favorites

    Time to swim upstream to spawn again? Welcome back anyway. Time for another what's the best cooked fish taste test?
  7. Next month the first round of beta testing starts.
  8. New Geneforge 5 Character Editor

    You are probably missing a punctuation. One wrong character can cause an error like that. It's why you are warned to backup before copying so you can do it over from the original version. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. You might want it back when you are done.
  9. A4 - Rearranging party members

    There are arrow keys to move party members up and down usually on the character screens that shows their stats and abilities. In some games you can choose on the menu preferences to either use party order or by speed from dexterity, quick action, and other statuses.
  10. It isn't a bug, bug a deliberate decision by the game designer. A bit of pain to have to go so far to get back.
  11. Need help with servile in GF4, chapter 2

    When you can't use mental magic effectively, you need to slowly move into the area to draw them off into melee. That area unfortunately will swarm you so you need to position yourself with the terrain and make it so most don't have line of sight on you. You may have to retreat a few times to avoid getting too many at once especially the magic attackers.
  12. It depends upon the game and operating system where the saved folder is stored. The oldest games lets you store them wherever you wanted. But most of the games in the last few years have the path specified and in the case of Geneforge 4 stored inside the game folder. I never tried to find the code line that specifies the path, so I can't help you. It maybe hard coded into the game.
  13. Knowledge, At Last peaceful way? (SPOILER)

    No other way but fighting through. You can avoid some fights with monsters by minimizing exploration.
  14. Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    Return Life needs a Balm of Life potion and in some cases you may not have been high enough level if the character was dust.
  15. A6 - Killed Nociduos, Quest not Done?

    Did you go and follow him past a magical barrier? I remember it being a long hunt to finally kill him.
