  1. 2 parts of the stream Avernum 3: Ruined World done by Jeff are released in YouTube under the channel spiderwebsoftware1 on 1/30/21.
  2. Too excited for the homeland to arrive.
  3. The topic of new year resolutions pleases me always, but I have decided that there is not going to be any ''''''resolutions'''''' next year because I don't just follow them any year. 😁
  4. Yeah, I know I am not making any progress. But don't think that I am one of those who makes oaths of creating scenarios and do nothing. I thought that the plot was too dumb and large for a first timer to do with and I am busy with my work too right now. But hopefully I will create something decent and never go scenario-less.
  5. Yeah, I know that Rosetta 2 exists to allow old X86 based programs to run on new ARM chips, but I predict that these won't last longer as like the previous transition. And Spiderweb games have historically been played for a longer time, and it is evident from games like Exile which are still played (Not on new macs). So, it makes sense to create some piece of innovation that helps this to continue. I know that most of the gamers don't use Macs, but some folks are out in there. Why would we like someone to say, "I unfortunately can't play Geneforge: Mutagen in my 2025 iMac." ???
  6. With the new ARM based Apple's M1 chip being out with Macs fitted with it, is Geneforge: Mutagen ready with a compatible version to run on it? Also X86 based version for Macs should come out to support OS X 10.x.
  7. Wow. I never knew that we can discuss politics in here. 🤔
  8. My point here is that the run is just a lower level of cave series beneath Avernum and Fort Cavalier has a secret tunnel that leads up to Dharmon. And it is not only about the 13 sections but there are even some north of that where sliths reign and we can't reach. But can't accept that Fort Goodling is south of Great Cave because you get a message just outside it that the lands to the west of Goodling are more civilised. But does that mean the run extends into west of Goodling?
  9. Was thinking about it. There is a scenario called 'The Za-Khazi Run' in BoE and BoA. But, where does the whole run thing fit into the compact Avernum? I also tried A5 map but the nearest city was told as Dharmon towards the end. So, it should be the original map. Does anyone have an idea about it? Or was the solution found in any previous threads?
  10. Hello! I hope that this scenario is not too long. What happened to the progress?
  11. Yeah, I realize that I should not have double-posted and apologies for that. I installed many games at that time so that I wanted also Exile in the machine quickly. And, as you told still I am in need of an answer. Exile is old but not unsupported as still it has a big community dedicated to itself.
  12. No, the older versions didn't work. I have Super VGA 256 colors VM as is expects, and I also have a sound driver. I also have few other games too that work properly but the Exile ones are not working. I also tried E2:CS yesterday but it only managed to give out the startup screen and sound.
  13. As I told already, I tried to install Exile games in Win 3.1 VM. Yesterday, I exactly tried E1:EFTP. The setup went smoothly and after I install it and launch the game, the game gets stuck in the intro screen and doesn't proceed further. I used a tool to convert the setup I installed in the host to a .iso file and installed it in the VM. Is there any step I'm missing or is it like simple v2.0 of Exile doesn't support 16-bit? Please help me. And, I didn't uncompress anything in the VM like told in the Description of Exile in the game page. Is there any separate 16-bit version?
  14. I didn't tell anything about the theme, ladyonthemoon. Usually use Microsoft Edge for browsing, but as Randomizer said that the update seems to be browser-specific, I tried to open up the forums with Internet Explorer 11 and got a result like this. This was what I meant. The look of the forums.
  15. I too noticed the differences. My hate here is ... no sign in option is visible. I just have to click on to follow something to get the sign-in page. As Randomizer said, I tried it on my IE11 but it seemed to be broken.
  16. Thank you, Celtic Minstrel. I just didn't want to mess up the 16-bit thing by putting in something that it could not handle with.
  17. I had just set up Windows 3.1 on a virtual machine. I would like to know if all Exile games are compatible with it, or which games are. The game page doesn't have such information.
  18. I don't think A4 was so bad. It was a better step taken by the Spiderweb Software to change Avernum's game engine to Geneforge's one. And the ratings of Blades games depends also upon the efforts of the custom scenario creators, so I don't think the ratings would be accurate.
  19. I can't understand if your point about Ornotha Ziggurat was in affirmative or negative. But, I loved that kind of gameplay too. It makes sense for a difficult dungeon like this to be a part of the game atleast once. Avernum 3 demo was the first ever Spiderweb game I played... I got attracted soon by that and bought the game... That's why I am a great fan of it.
  20. AV1,a game I somewhat disliked. Because, I preferred keyboard and you know how keyboard arrow keys worked in A1&A2. A3 provided more convenience even though I had to finally shift for mouse to play A1&A2. And specifically in A1 you move two steps if you just click the mouse once. That happens sometimes. And, that was the thing why I too tell that A1 got a non-friendly UI... But A2 is more satisfactionary. No, in A3 the game ends with a cutscene when you use the control panel and you cannot do anything else.
  21. When will this scenario complete the beta and release? No replies around for few days.
  22. A3 is one of the famous Avernum games, and it is the most favorite of me. I have heard about many people complaining about A2 being somewhat less attractive than Avernum 3. Yeah, I accept that Avernum 3 has got better gameplay, skills and stuff like that. But, one more main reason I see is A1 and A2 have got cave designs for the most part, but A3 has got surface designs. The surface designs are more attractive for the eyes as they are brighter and colorful but the cave floor just depends on gray color for the most... or its just limited. I think this impact of vision has given A3 more reputati
