  1. Jeff's channel is SpiderwebSoftware1, it can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC9KFkSmStmAEPSVrmS4OgQ Check this to see if there any new uploads.
  2. The BoA Editor forum has a list of BoA bugs, that may help. This problem may not have been detected before, if that is the case there may be no known solution.
  3. Aetuzcu said at one point: "Sorry for the low resolution photo. But when i try to take screenshot i just take black screen." If you play in a window, this problem should not occur. At the bottom of the startup dialog box, check both the 'Play Game in Window' and 'Always Start in this Mode' boxes. Then Quit and restart the game. Here is a screenshot of the relevant dialog box: https://www.freewebs.com/ishadnha/StartSettings.png When you want to take a screenshot, just press Alt+Prt Sc, then paste the image into a graphics program like MS Paint. Save the file under a name of your choosing. If for some strange reason, you will be taking a lot of screenshots, a freeware program like Greenshot can automate the saving of the files. Go into the Destination tab of Settings/Preferences, choose the "Save directly (...)" option, then set it up.
  4. Here is a link to a picture of Celt level 15, Under Goagh Nar, in the Spoiler section below. https://www.freewebs.com/ishadnha/CeltLevel15.png
  5. In the original game, I think they could use Armor Use skill to reduce encumbrance. Then there was the Defense skill to avoid the need for armor. The NR game has a work-around for Celts: Armor Use (Roman cost: 1, Celt Cost: 3) - Enables you to wear and get benefit from bulky armor. The more of this skill you have, the more your armor protects you. Also keeps your armor from slowing you down and taking your action points in combat.
  6. Circle Warrens also show up on 908.bmp, the Shadowvale map that can be accessed in your list of game buttons.
  7. In Hollow Hills, look in the south-west side for a room with no doors or windows. Walk around it, a placed special will remove a part of the wall
  8. Circle Warrens are south of the Crone Caverns, where the old hags tried to imprison the party.
  9. As a Roman party you are probably meant to use Tool Use to open a door. Roman parties have easy access to this skill while Celts can't train in it, they can only buy a few levels in Tool Use.
  10. I am not sure what Vox is intending for his scenario. He might be thinking of different amounts of Slave Lore at different parts of the scenario.
  11. You can use a SDF to record an unofficial Slavery Lore, it is your only hope here. This can be displayed with a custom special ability.
  12. In the Celt version, the arrows seem to disappear whenever you leave a town and then go outdoors...
  13. The process could be automated by a batch file or a small custom program.
  14. Put the official outdoor wall types in a safe place, You can create a special folder in your BoA directory. I think the graphics are types 614 and 616. All terrain graphics should be found in the folder: Blades of Avernum\Data\Terrain Graphics Make your own two new wall types, name them G614.bmp and G616.bmp and put them in the Data folder. This change will affect all outdoor sections in your scenario, whether you want that or not.
  15. You can create two new outdoor terrain types that replace the two existing types but that is about it, unless you want a town to function as a surrogate outdoor section.
  16. Current porting process is problematic, has limitations. It is better than it was twenty years ago. Topics and posts in the Blades of Avernum Editor sub-forum will give you knowledge on the hassles that may arise.
  17. This is what you should be seeing at the end of the exploration of the Vale: If that is the portal south of the Dealmaking Rooms, that is state 74 and it never works. You don't need it for anything anyway.
  18. Need to check the N:R hintbook to see what was intended by Jeff. The ledge is not that big a deal. Main idea is to warn players of Celtic parties that it is Roman-only, so they don't waste huge amounts of time trying to get into it. Said Hintbook is not so clear on this point, relevant maps are written from a Celtic perspective.
  19. N:R is a port of the original game, this is just begging for non-functional holdovers from the original game. As for the ledge, I will need to consult walkthroughs. I saw a call in the town script that would take the party to the ledge on the level below. This was beginstate 71. However, I see no placement for it, I can't see where it might have been placed.
  20. I think that ledge is meant to be accessed by falling from the big pit on the level above, but I couldn't get this to work in practice?! (There may be dead links inside the relevant town script, t14Upper Goag.txt) Secret doors are all over the place. Explore as much as you can and then use Piercing Sight.
  21. Goagh Nar was not too bad with a well-balanced Celtic party...
  22. Here is a screengrab showing both NPCs for a Celt party. Their starting equipment is nothing much. There are other temporary NPCs but they leave the party when the party leaves the relevant area. https://www.freewebs.com/ishadnha/Celt Party NPCs.png Next up will be the two NPCs for a Roman party. https://www.freewebs.com/ishadnha/Roman Party NPCs.png Rhian may be Britannian, but she follows all the rules for Romans because she is in a Roman party.
  23. I had some thoughts on modifying the NPCs: http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/topic/20655-nethergate-resurrection-the-vanarium-npcs/ You can always make new screenshots of your own and add them to your post, it is easy enough.
  24. In the Celt game, you don't want to fight him as he is an ally. In the Roman game, you don't need to fight him to win. I have never tried to fight him.
  25. Windows 10 has the full Compatibility Mode from Windows 95 to Windows 8.
