  1. Good idea - the activity monitor is showing 103.7% CPU use. %User - 22 %System - 7.61 %Idle - 70
  2. It seems to drain about 10% every 15 minutes, plus the machine is very hot & the fan is running, so I'm guessing lots of processing is happening. I never noticed the rapid drain or heat issue in Avernum 4,5, or 6. Is this normal, or should I have the machine checked?
  3. Added Cheater's Paradise and The Final Spire. Enjoy.
  4. Quote: Originally written by BainIhrno: When can someone get on with sorting out the scenarios into their appropriate series at the top of this forum? I know that it isn't that important, but it looks strange to have some scenarios sorted, but others not. Examples are Echoes series, Stareye's scenarios, Kurnis series, etc. If somebody wants to do this, here is the existing HTML to work with. Fix it up and post it back here; I'll do the rest. <b><a href="http://www.personal.psu.edu/staff/b/x/bxb11/boe/BoEBoard.htm">Forum Information</a></b> <TABLE> <TR> <TD VALIGN="TOP"> <font size="-2"

  5. See also http://www.personal.psu.edu/~bxb11/boe/howdoit.htm for some tips on face graphics, etc.
  6. It's password protected because there is still room for one more person in the Hall of Fame. Once that's filled, I'll remove the password.
  7. Jeff would have to release the source code for it, or somebody would have to reverse-engineer it. Neither has ever happened, but maybe someday Jeff will release the source. One can but hope.
  8. Google this http://games4mac.de/content_g4m/reviews/avernum4.php then tell the result to "translate this page." You'll be treated to a review of Avernum 4 that will have you rolling on the floor! For example: "In the country underground that a kind represents banishing place for the opponents of the aboveground Empire, it bubbles it."
  9. Quote: Originally written by Thuryl: Poser's a fairly popular 3D modelling and rendering program, designed specifically for making models of humans. I believe that Brett Bixler has a copy, although he's not around as often as he used to be and I don't know if one could talk him into helping make graphics for A5. I could have my arm twisted. I use Poser right now to make custom animations for Second Life. If someone can point me in the right direction for the types of poses needed (in addition to the game itself) I'll take a look. There are PLENTY of people using Poser who would do this for free, even sign a simple contract, IMO.
  10. TM, Kasumetoru Sai = Stolen Weapon? and WHY do you keep changing your handle? Inquiring minds want to know!
  11. Quote: Originally written by Ahbleza: Just a passing comment..... You have a Scenario listed above as, "The Missing Notes". It didn't ring a bell with me, so I checked my "Scenarios" file and see none by that name. Therefore, I presume your listing is for Aaron Waddington's, "The Stolen Notes". Is this so, or have I misunderstood? I question the name as, "The Stolen Notes" is the title on the opening page of the work by A. W. As to it being "Untried", If anyone's interested, I have what I call a "Packaged" form of it, which means: The Author's files, My Detailed Walk Through and *.bmp pictures of the important areas. As above, just passing through. It's on the Spidweb site as "The Missing Notes," but the readme just titles it "The Notes." I'm leaving it as is for now until it is ranked.
  12. Alex is now up to date and should be the single-most comprehensive source for BoE Scenarios. My thanks to everyone who helped me make this so!
  13. Maybe it should be "Hairs on Theseus?"
  14. Seriously, I fixed what was mentioned. Are there other problems?
  15. Many thanks to Bain-Ihrno! He also added descriptions for many scenarios that had none.
  16. The Foolish Giant is now available via Alexandria. Enjoy! And please rate it at Alex once you've played it!
  17. I can host it if you want - but you will not have direct access to it.
  18. If you're strapped to find an experienced player, I'll do it.
  19. The forum header should be fixed - thanks for spotting that. As for the title, it will be the user's choice - within reason. I'm sure no swear words or things that evoke pornographic thoughts would be accepted.
