    Homeland progress report

    That reminds me, I updated that once but no idea if I still have it.

    Well I picked a good time to pick Avernum back up and dust it off....

    Of Good and Evil crashes at Prologue (Win 7, GOG version)

    For the record the crash issue isn't limited to those scenarios, it's an engine issue with newer flavours of Windows. The memory either leaks or does something else doing prologues in a lot of scenarios (typically any with 3+), it made me drop Avernum for a few years due to unplayability of favoured scenarios. Compatibility tends to be hit and miss for fixing it, pretty sure I or others have mentioned it in the past. Started being an issue with Windows 7 if memory serves.

    BoA - Cutscene and Intro hanging

    So I've seen the two issues posted separately but not together, has anyone actually found a work around that allows the intro timer and cutscene sequences to not crash the game on Windows 10? The cutscene one sometimes winds up just being the game hanging for a few seconds and then skipping it, still it dampens playability when you miss a massive chunk of the scenarios. The intro one however completely crashes the game and other than trying to click spam past them or manually removing the intros does it work. So yeah, again anyone found any fixes for that? One small one I can think of right off the bat is converting the intro scenes into dialogue boxes once the scenarios start, it'd require people to redownload them all but it's a fix.

    Teleporting the Party with an Item

    Wouldn't that mean basically hiding a tile somewhere inaccessible in every town and having the item script call it depending on the town? Probably via SDF setting upon town entry.

    Exile Series Windows 10

    Lilith means WIndows 3.1/95 installed inside dosbox, which is a bit specialised but doable.

    Teleporting the Party with an Item

    Bit of a necro but interesting concept so... Shouldn't it be possible to rig up a script that makes using the item place and activate a temporary special or activate via a dialogue window/cutscene?

    Exile Series Windows 10

    Shouldn't it be able to run in dosbox as well?

    I've always been able to get any Spiderweb gave to run on Vista and now Seven, resolution choices like these just bug the hell out of me.

    Bah humbug, looks like I'll have to suffer it then. I'd feared that would be the case.

    Idea: Second Don't Fix the Shark Contest?

    ALERT: Come play the last BoA scenario ever made!

    I suppose I had better never finish one of the scenarios sitting partway done on my memory stick then...
