  1. Which version do I need to play Blades of Exile on the Windows 7 netbook I'm going to buy? I'd much prefer the original game if possible (it works on my Vista PC fine so far and it doesn't break any scenarios) But has anyone tried it on Windows 7?
  2. Must be quite a long time - maybe be more than eight years - I remember I discovered the game at a time I did not have a permanent internet connection - it was Win 3.11 then? - had to hunt for time to dnld scenarios! I've just installed the 32bit version on a Vista PC and plan to have another go at The Gallows too just to keep the scent warm. No time catching up with the forum, though... I still hope there might be a way - eventually - to be able to play them all once more...
  3. Quote: If the party dies, they die permanently, regardless of whether the scenario is supposed to resurrect them Unfortunately, this happened also in "A Gathering Storm" (thrown in prison someplace.. and couldn't recover, as I remembered it.) - windows version -
  4. Quote: Do you ever notice that you have lost map data for a town or outdoor area? Or has this bug been fixed? To be honest. I never noticed anything like this in the past. I've recently finished Adv. Club games, quite complicated, lots of towns. I noticed some times some placeables in queer places. I hit town reset (shift+ > ]and it was gone. Never happened to loose any data though. Any example?
  5. Quote: so playing on Vista is an option? I've been playing the 32-bit version for a while without any major problems (except for the Character Editor). I'm on XP, but I don't think there's going to be much of a difference in Vista - the real problem, I believe, was the 16-bit installer, exe and inability to handle long filenames. Since Ormus' version is 32-bit it should play OK in Vista.
  6. If you haven't found her yet - she is in a big house in the residential area (Independence) and she is downstairs in the cellar.
  7. Boat you can get only when you're able to enter Magestica (the Magite place) - you get there only when you'r given a kind of passport-visa-cum-free-teleporting thing.
  8. Has anyone attempted this? I'd appreciate any link/info/direction. (Sorry, I've been hitting mh head on dead forums for a while so I lost touch.) Also, (I know I'm being greedy... I know most people have Macs) any possibility of porting BoE to Win Mobile (the game certainly appeals for a PDA...)
  9. That's a GREAT job and MUCH needed!!! BTW the link http://home.comcast.net/~kelandon4045/GoblinGrotto.zip doesn't seems to work and the links for "Deep Down" & "Deathmatch" are shown the one instead of the other. Sorry, nothing from the missing list here...
  10. From a mere player's point of view: At first I believed BoA was going to be BoE ported in 3D - and 3D should be better! I was in for a disappointment. BoA has inferior graphics compared to other similar 3D games (ex. Neverwinter Nights), positioning of North is confusing as you cannot move the camera around, view of the world is restricted etc... - that is, the game convensions lack in credibility. BoE has good graphics for a 2D game and the game conventions feel quite believable. All above might not have been that objectionable if BoA had retained more of BoE best qualities:
  11. Try some NWN stuff (for example) and you might actually decide to come back I strongly suggest you try it after playing some of the best of Alcritas, *i, Drizzt, B.B, Shyguy (... far from wishing to offend the rest ...)
  12. Diskettes? - strange - when I bought BoE back in 1999(?) I think there was no option of diskettes even then - the CD came all the way from the States by post without any extra charges - and I was pleasurably surprised to find that it included both the PC & Mac registered versions! [at the time I had been forced to buy a new licence for a @*#%$! program when I switched from Mac to PC] I believe BoE sports the best usage-per-money percentage of any software I ever bought...
  13. This problem may appear when you try to start a scenario loading a *.sav file (a party) that is not inside the same folder as the BLADES.EXE. 1) IMPORTANT on a PC(and not only for this instance]: you want to be able to see file extensions... (WinXP) from My Computer->Tools->Options->View unckeck everything that hides files or folders - of course you must be careful then what you delete... but it is safer in more than one ways... 2) The *.sav files (that is parties, played games etc) should be placed inside the BLADEXIL folder (the folder that contains BLADES.EXE). 3) Al
  14. About the lost Lost King scns: Quote: They're up. Click on any of the three titles to get to the download page. Sorry to butt in, I've also missed the pleasure in playing them - but I can't see any link on your site. Did I arrive too late?
  15. Quote: These scenarios are already up at Alex but the links for them don't work and I haven't found any other working links for them. The Big Fight – by John O’Brien The Lost Island – by Brave Sir Robin Four Horsemen – by Glynn Reaper Search for Mortrax – by Justin Paszul Daughters of Aiyina – by Janet Cone The Zhakazi Edit – by Alcritas (temporarily only and without permission ) here and finally found a working link for "A Quest for Milk" here BUT fat chance on playing much... on company time...
