  1. Have you tried crossing through Beraza Woods to the other side? It has been a while since I played, but a few zones don't open up with just getting a quest there, but also require passing through a zone that you've previously explored.
  2. Then there are all the new secrets that Jeff has added to the remake. Did the Shapers create the GIFTS?
  3. My first play through, I hauled the loot to a new island and before I could empty out my inventory, I'm attacked and can't do anything until I've emptied it out. I hated sorting through the loot pile to find what I wanted each time I was moving to craft at an anvil or just what I might want while exploring.
  4. There really isn't a good side in Geneforge. Every faction is despicable.
  5. I think the one in Ybsal's chest is there regardless of what you do with Obro. Since you can't steal it, it's just there to annoy you.
  6. You can get it made with 4 of the 5 stones from the Vol. You can get a stone in the Smoky Peaks when you pick a side either when fighting there or visiting if you picked the other side. I don't know why you can't buy from Obro since I remember being able to buy more than one Glitterstone from him.
  7. This is why you have lots of different game saves. Sometimes if you move around you can get the wolf to move. I'm not sure if there was a cheat code for that game. If there was then use Shift-d to bring up the code box and enter backtostart <Return key>. This can cause other problems. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. Too late!
  8. The quest requires you to travel to three different places where you fight lesser foes in the first two before you reach the final fight. The entrance doesn't open unless you did the other ones to the southwest in order. Look for areas with blackened scorch marks.
  9. Vampiric touch was considered flawed. It was supposed to give you some health when you damaged foes.
  10. 1. There isn't a point of no return. You get different quests and some things can only happen if you go there. Do go to Fort Remote first since that can change once you do another quest that you might not think was significant. 2. There are different types of caps. After level 30 the assignable stats and skill points are only given every 5 levels. You will likely end the game in the middle 30s unless you want to grind gather ingredients for wisdom crystals or fight monsters for a few points. 3. This game allows you to pick the order to do the 3 main quests a
  11. Congratulations on finishing. You do have 3 to 4 months until Geneforge 1 - Mutagen.
  12. Yes, hit chance bonuses and negatives apply, however spells start with a higher base chance than physical weapons. The main problem for casting magic spells is that too many negative to hit chances from armor mean that you can't cast spells. I'm trying to find a game mechanics analysis for the remakes.
  13. It has been so long that I can't remember the answer either. I know as a Roman that you can't unlock the highest spells, but I can't remember the cutoff for Healing and War Circles. I didn't see a mention in the Strategy Central topics either.
  14. I did state were shown and not how they worked, because of Jeff's comments when he clarified them for Avernum 4.
  15. In the oldest Spiderweb games, resistances were shown as additive. In original Nethergate for example it was possible to stack so you couldn't get hit. Starting with Avernum 4 this was explicitly changed to multiplicative calculation for resistance. Also resistances got capped so you couldn't avoid any damage since some items gave total immunity to a damage type.
  16. There isn't a limit to these quests except the number that are found in the game. If I remember, the drake skin quest is for making items so there aren't many.
  17. Mazumdar is the one you need to go back to for permission to get the level 3 spell book access after first Berra for evidence and Anaximander for quest completion. The later games are very picky about doing things in a specific order. You need the evidence from a plague so the Slime Pit quest would have worked as well and you can always go back there for the evidence (Erka's Rune in room by boss monster) if you missed it the first time. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. Oops, too late.
  18. I looked through the scripts and Geneforge 5 doesn't seem to have it like in later games. So it's probably hard coded.
  19. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. We are not responsible if you lose it. 1. Ability names are in a text document and can be changed. 2. You can the movement from 0, but weird things can happen. 4. Look at other mods and compare the changes to the original versions. Some changes can be complicated because they affect both your party and your foes.
  20. I think the 200 item limit came from Dikiyoba collecting and storing useless items in a zone. I don't know if anyone else ever bothered bringing in items and counting. The disappearing items has been hard to check because players aren't always sure that they dropped them in the spot. There is a similar bug with the junk bag where too many items turns all the items into a low value item. The empty chests in all new zones is an irreproducible bug because if you replay from before this problem occurs, even duplicating your actions doesn't cause it again. It appears in seve
  21. September update Over half done and beta testing will start soon. Screenshots and video of the remake are coming soon with Jeff showing what looks like a new zone in the background.
  22. That's because it's more profitable to sell for an annual fee by forcing "upgrades" than one time for each computer. The old sale model is gone to make way for a steady profit stream. Now you don't always own what you buy by download. I was happy with my older operating system until I could no longer access web sites because the older browser is no longer supported or upgraded.
  23. Basilisk Games' Eschalon had the equipment wears down and repair it mechanism. You had to decide whether you wanted to learn the repair skill to do it yourself or just spend money to fix it. The major point to repairing equipment was it improved value for selling it. So camping near a merchant and going to see if they randomly stocked a worn item that you could repair and then sell back was an easy way to raise money. Otherwise the mechanism wasn't worth it. HackMaster, a table top role playing game from Kenzer and Company had the equipment wears out in combat and you n
  24. Trump's anti-trust cases are only against companies where he hates the owner or a foreign company when he's scoring political points. Even then he back tracks when he needs that country's help (China).
