  1. I agree; Exile is a lot more fun that a lot of games I've seen and played. But I would have thought they'd drop the price to register considering that the Avernum games are now old news... but they're still the same price. That said, with the dollar being weak against the pound right now, it's not so bad. £15, maybe. Would have to check conversion rates. Cheers for the tips. I found the room in the end - I had to cast Move Mountains on a wall (quite hard to tell apart from the others), fight a few spore beasts and a shambler, and then walk through a wall. In the end I just kicked the giant slugs arses and soaked up the acid damage... painful but my guys survived. Money is still a problem, but I've started finding more decent loot to flog off, and can actually start affording some decent spells and training... unfortunately, I'm now at the end of the shareware part... grr! I'll try the shift-W thing, that sounds dead handy!
  2. This is my first post on the board, so hi, folks. I'm playing through the unregistered version of E3 (first one I've played; dunno why I started with this one, but there ya go), and I've gotten into the Filth Factory. I'm having trouble with those giant slugs and the acid spit, though. I know basic powder gets rid of it, but I left mine in Fort Emergence (duhhhh) and it's a fair way back there. I checked a walkthrough and it says "Go east through the fake wall, then north to 5,20 and south through the fake wall for 500 gold, some Basic Powder, and some Cleansing Powder." Problem is, I can't *get* to 5,20, and I can't find any fake walls around the area at all (bar the one to get into the dungeon, of course). It's not a major source of frustration - I could just go back to F.E., after all - but having checked the walkthrough, and discovering that there IS some in the dungeon, I want it... and coincidentally that 500 gold too! So where is it? Has the walkthrough got the wrong co-ordinate in it, or am I just being stupid? Or... is it because the game is unregistered? Oh, and another question... what are your recommended ways of making cash? Money is the biggest problem in this game IMO - there's not much of it, and everything is expensive. There's the despatch office, but all of the jobs involve loooong distances to areas I've not visited yet, so I'm not sure about that. Any tips? Oh, and I'm thinking about registering the game - I just kinda resent having to pay full price for such an old game, however good it is.
