    Geneforge on Windows 10: Out of ideas

    Not sure what you're running into, but I've played all five Geneforge games on Win10 with the only issue being a slow load of the save, etc. menu in 1-3. Plays fine otherwise. No special preparations. Nothing special about this machine either. Doesn't help resolve your issue, except maybe to help narrow your search.

    Homeland: The Stone of Night...anyone?

    also: https://web.archive.org/web/20111025132926/http://homeland.nethergate.net/Homeland.exe; the non-archived link appears to be dead.

    Not Experienced But Eager To Learn(Exile Series)

    Some links I used when I did this sort of thing a couple of years ago (~ May 2016): DOSBox: https://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1, https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Usage Windows 3.11 for DOSBox: http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?s=cd4f328d0abf769b744e605e91d0deaa&t=27770 The quote in #1 in the previous post is from this thread: http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/topic/21917-exile-iii-and-windows-10/ *Eventually* (much emphasized) I ended up with a command line that used DOSBox to launch Windows 3. Then, within Win 3, install the Exile games. I can't remember what, if any, messing around I did with DOSBox or Windows 3. https://imgur.com/a/sKSuAbP The caveat here is that my host system is Win 10, but I imagine DOSBox runs pretty much the same - ?

    [GF5] Sprite size possible to change?

    Ignorance is bliss :-) Try here for starters: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-About-Version-Control. While that is from an online book associated with a particular tool, it's a nice brief intro. For what you're doing, it's a way to keep track of your changes, and backing them out if you need to. Of course, it can do a lot more. If you're into programming of any sort, this is an essential part of it.

    Re "golden rule", have you ever worked with source control systems? If you haven't, they're worth looking into.

    BoE Scenarios Archive? And BoE Version

    You may want to use a separate site / GitHub user / repository for items with different perceived risks, just in case.

    Slarty Ranks Everything

    From a "big data" perspective, there are plenty of data points so far from which to make quite a few predictions. Assuming you had the data sets to work with. Probably enough for personal identification purposes too.

    Endgame Question

    That's for not dealing with the Tower of Magi disaster, right? What if you take care of that, but not the plagues etc.?
  13. right - you get someone else to do it while you stand back and watch.

    Items in Avadon: Black Fortress

    When viewing inventory in Avadon you can still switch characters by clicking on their portraits or typing the numbers 1 through 6. I tend to pick up a lot of stackable things that may have no use simply because I can and they only take up one inventory slot. I seem to remember that Avadon does not count inventory weight... ? And also - there used to be some standard first time forum greeting of leaving one's sanity at the door, but apparently we all lost our minds, so... yeah.

    Torment Singleton Ideas

    I've been searching for that, and found an old walk through (for Exile 3, I think) that claims "no", and that besides, there's nothing there (so how would they know that?). I didn't find anything indicating otherwise for any version. However - what led to my search was finding this in one of the text files: "Sulfras looks very upset that you learned her secret! She casts a spell, and alien beasts appear all around you. The Beastslayer Blade disintegrates!" Looks like a holdover from an earlier version, but still - it's intriguing. Maybe it applies/applied to something else.
