  1. Feedback on MINOR GUI tweak please: Inventory (EDIT: No longer minor :/ )

    Huh...that seems very odd to me, but if it's happened to you multiple times, fair enough. Excepting for 10, which seems wrong. Don't people just click on the "cast mage" or "cast priest" drop down bars? You could do it the other way if you wanted, but I never bothered. In regards to the later layout, at first I was very strongly opposed, but I think that it might just be the font. A less arty, more normal font and things would work better, though I think I'd prefer the map to not separate the stats and inventory, to me those should be next to each other.
  2. Feedback on MINOR GUI tweak please: Inventory (EDIT: No longer minor :/ )

    In what sense do you think the old interface doesn't work well. I always thought it was basic, but functional, and I liked that. Also, why move stats and inventory over to the left? Not seeing the advantage in that.
  3. Feedback on MINOR GUI tweak please: Inventory (EDIT: No longer minor :/ )

    Hmmm...personally, I'm against it, I like being able to see 8 items instead of just 3. Yeah, I can scroll up and down, but it'd be handy to see more at one time. I personally prefer functionality to aesthetics, but that might just be me. I would suggest, though, if going for the bigger pictures, to make better use of the expanded room to the right of the pic. I don't like the "Charges: N/A" stuff, but having the weight, for example, might be worthwhile. Possibly base GP price? Damage for weapon or protection for armour and so on might be nice, but rather more fiddly, don't know if it'd be worth the effort.
  4. New Vahnatai PC graphics: Feedback?

    Those look pretty good. With the waveblade one, I think if you swapped the standing one for the attacking one it'd work better. The standing waveblade one and the standing one under that look very similar, though. Also, and this might just be me, but the human in the middle row, 4 down? On more than one occasion I've not been paying attention when casting a firestorm or something against troglodytes, and there's a trog with a similar looking shield and I've accidentally targeted my own PC. Not sure if other people do that sort of thing, but if so, do the PC vahnatai look sufficiently different to the NPC ones?
  5. Can you move from one town to another in a boat?

    Hmm, ok, thanks.
  6. I vaguely remember something about when the party was in a boat, they couldn't change towns (use a staircase, say). I'm not sure if this was the case, or if it had been fixed. I guess, if you couldn't do that, you could leave the town, go to a small outside section, and then go back into another town, rather than move from one to the other directly.
  7. Another GUI enlargement attempt

    It's very easy for someone who isn't doing the work and has no knowledge of what's involved to talk about what should be done, so I'll do that then. While I do like the idea of enlarging the graphics, I don't like the idea of moving all the button and stuff around. Same layout, but with everything enlarged seems best to me. Mind you, as it is, it's easy to move the map under where the action is, and have the program take up half the screen and have something else on the other. I don't know if that sort of thing would appeal to many others, though.
  8. Exile 3 tileset.

    Out of interest, why was there a change in cave floors for E3 to BoE? Other graphics I could imagine just not being necessary or seeming too old, but I don't see why white floors are better than aqua.
  9. Map Completionist, yea or nay?

    Yup...and if there's a spot on the map I can't get into it's infuriating. Oh, and gotta scry monster them all.
  10. Sosaria (My first game)

    Bit late to this (and yet to make any scenarios myself), but: Yeah, I'm one of those people who tended to ignore those "this scenarios is designed for specific level or specific save file" warnings. Nowdays, though, I just tend to use the editor more when I get stuck. I tend to play for the story, the grind is just something along the way. Speaking of grind, I'm not a fan of big, multi level dungeons, at least not when you are exploring them thoroughly. I go in, clear a bit out, take all the treasure, go to a nearby town and sell it and come back. In a big dungeon that means I have to keep commuting to work through bits I've already cleared out before I can get to the new stuff, and that gets annoying. Likewise, friendly towns where it's inconvenient to reach whoever I want to talk to. In general, I'd recommend playing a bunch of BoE, see what you like, see what you don't. Commonly people wanting to make a scenario for the first time were told to make something small and get it done, but there was also the idea that your first scenario (or, in my case, my first dozen and counting) won't be finished. So make it as big as you like, try out weird and wonderful things, learn how to do things, and this will help after you've given up on that one and start the next one. Especially the custom graphics, lots of fun making those, and the stuff you don't use for one scenario can easily be used for another. (Actually, should go back to working on mine at some point) EDIT: Oh, another advantage to short scenarios, I might actually finish them. If a scenario gets too long and starts to drag I generally won't give up as such, I'll save the game and maybe come back later and forget about it. This could just be me, though.
  11. Yeah, knew it was about that many, but I thought I'd er on the side of caution and say 5.
  12. Seems a strange thing to lose. In any case, he's probably got more important things to do than much about with that, not like he runs a big company with a whole 5 people in it.
  13. Blades of Exile Base errors

    Ah...now that I think of it, I can't think of a monster that has a breath weapon that has another ability, at least in E3. That makes sense.
  14. Do You Have These BoE Scenarios? (also, about reviews)

    I think I have Domestic Evil...though do the scenarios have straightforwards names? Domestic Evil is "de", for example. As for reviews, would things be much different now? Apart from scenarios notable for being different than the others at the time, for using the editor i new and inventive ways, not seeing why things would change much. Excepting Inn of Blades, which would be much shorter if made today.
  15. Vahnatai PC Graphics (and others) Wanted!

    Oh, that's quite impressive. Some of them seem a bit odd, but I guess that's cause I'm used to the older ones. I should give that a try. Most of the graphics I've made aren't from scratch, they are rehashes of the stuff that came with BoE, but I'll have a go.
