  1. I've been playing Exile III: Ruined World, but at some point, after the Troglodyte/Giant mission, Anaximander stopped giving me messages as I walked into his office - it seems the game stopped responding to my actions in some places. I'm playing v.1.0.3, on an OS 9 emulator.
  2. To clarify my comments on this, I'm not saying this is a problem or a bad thing - I only pointed this out to help give you a realistic idea of what a player is likely to find on their first play through; I'm only one person, but I felt if other people also say similar things, you might get an idea of how much people are finding without a hint file - whether you're okay with that finding out is your decision
  3. I have sent in a beta report - not sure if you saw it.
  4. I'm ready to begin the second round of testing - this version will be less buggy than the first beta, but may not quite be ready for release. This will be a public beta, so if you would like to test, download the scenario and play through. If you send a report, please let me know whether you have played the Blades of Exile scenario, and what type of party you played with, both in terms of level and the composition (Human/Nephil/Slith) of the party. You can send a report via email or by DM - it will transfer directly to my email. Without further ado... https://drive.goo
  5. I just downloaded it. It could be a while before I actually get to testing it; I'm just making the final touches to the "Redemption" port, and I have only just started replaying Bahssikava - as it's been a while since I've played it and Exodus, I'm not sure how good a job I can do if I don't have sufficient memory of the storyline established so far. Congratulations!
  6. I read "One of Us is Lying" a while back. It was fairly good, but came off as cliched at times, with the ending making the mystery less interesting. (The idea in the book seemed similar to 'Pretty Little Liars')
  7. Sorry for the double post- I'll be ready to start round 2 soon, so if you'd like to test the next round, let me know, I'll be able to send it as soon as it's ready.
  8. On this subject, does Jeff have any plans to remake Avernum 4 in the format of the newest Avernum games? I actually enjoyed the new ones quite a bit, despite my general loyalty to Exile.
  9. I got BoE working on an Mac OS 9 emulator. I've been curious: - Has anyone found a way I could make the graphics tone for custom graphics files match the Mac tone. As many know, the graphics have a lighter tone on Windows than Mac - this is reflected in custom graphics files in many scenarios. I remember one version of OBoE allowed you to set the general graphics tone in Preferences, but has any method been found to adjust it with custom graphics files? - Does anyone have a copy of the alternate default graphics file with the blue cave floors? I believe they were made b
  10. It has come to my attention that the fix created a new bug in the Old Manor - that has been fixed in the version above.
  11. Just letting everyone know - first betas are sent out. If you haven't signed up, and would like to test, I have transferred the ZIP file to iCloud, which I can access from my iPhone (although I don't have internet from there), so you can get the beta immediately after signing up.
  12. I apologize for the delay. I'm not quite ready to start sending things out, but I only have a few last-minute adjustments to make. A few things happened: (1) When I went through the alpha-testing process, I found substantially more bugs and problems than I anticipated, which obviously created more work. (2) A reason I am not on the forums as often is that my internet access is quite limited; I generally do not have internet access at my home, so I often have to go to public computers to get access. Due to having to self-quarantine these past few weeks, getting online is
  13. I previously downloaded an OS 9 emulator on my laptop (initially because I wanted to play Age of Empires, but that didn't work). I downloaded the original BoE from Spiderweb and tried it out and - viola! It worked! Only problem is that some character editor buttons don't work (the Free Extras do, but it makes it harder to design pre-fab parties for scenarios that require them.) I'm feeling confident once I finish the current round of alpha testing, I'll be ready to get started with beta-testing.
  14. For anyone who's interested: I know I haven't updated in a while - got sick over the Christmas holiday, then got BoE working on my computer and wanted to play some BoE scenarios and take a break before returning. I have started Round 2 of testing, but I think I brought in too weak of a party. I'll probably try to get through the dream sequence and one of the farms to ensure the noding is working correctly, but then I'll probably bring in a stronger party, and will definitely need to reduce the attack strength of many of the creatures. With any luck, I'll be ready to start with beta
  15. Update on Redemption: Getting close to finishing Round 1 of alpha testing - largely ironing out the most obvious bugs and getting it solidified. A couple things will have to be redone entirely. Furthermore, a number of things seem unfixable without restarting the scenario from the beginning (such as switching/placing items), so Round 2 is still going to likely be a bit of work. One of the other things it's possible for the party to approach a number of situations in five different ways or so, so many times, I have to test every possible party situation. Round 2 will obviously be picking up wha
