  1. That confuses me, you had a Mac partition for it? I've running it in comparability mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3.
  2. Good to see old names and people active, I think part of the problem is that Blades of Avernum just doesn't play well with modern systems. The intro text screens for scenarios hang if you don't click through them fast enough, the cutscenes hang and recover but sadly skip the entire thing. So long as you use dialog boxes only it runs fine with no issues, I'm going to try wrapping it in dosbox later and see if it runs better.
  3. Just bumping this, given it's a very annoying issue.
  4. That reminds me, I updated that once but no idea if I still have it.
  5. Well I picked a good time to pick Avernum back up and dust it off....
  6. 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.
  7. 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 righ
  8. I aim for multi role personally, for example my current party leader is a warrior/archer/mage/priest.... Annoying to train but he did start out as an archer warrior.
  9. Of which mine is way out of date... -trundles off to update-
  10. Damned shame, although maybe another designer will do a "fan" sequel sometime in the future. They were really enjoyable scenarios...
  11. Not a bad experiment at all, I might start my own like this. Maybe with a party though, possibly even working a storyline in about them. While have singleton versions going as well.
  12. I'll add that to my try and get to run list as well then, well done on it though.
