  1. I haven't used the editor, and would not use it to simply buff my characters (is this the point, btw?). I would, however, consider using a CE that added variety and/or fixed broken abilities like Daze/Charm - admittedly, this would be buffing sorc, but buff to make something work if fine with me. I'm not through the game (lvl 25), but more items would make sense to me if they aren't simply better, but different. EDIT: Added my vote. I cannot see the problem with how the installation is performed, so go ahead and add another file - can't be that hard, can it?

  3. I've played 1,2,4,5, and 6, but only completed the sixth, since I threw away my completionist side and hurried through it (still a very long game, they all are). I think the new engine is preferable, especially A6 has very nice combat, graphics and all. The entire history of the world is amazing, I think, but I'd say the first and the last are the best storywise. I think A3 is in highest (very high at least) regard, but that is the one game I haven't tried. Enginewise, as I said I prefer the newer because of the mouse (for moving, PLZ give back keyboard in combat!), but a lot of

I admit I hesitated more than once to fight some of those ladies and felt somehow uncomfortable when I did. Dude, not kicking the [censored] out of a chick, the way you would a man, is sexist Equality, all the way!

Never found the way east of the flooded area. Is it just there to taunt me?

  7. Hi all, Just did some calc and made this list. I hope you find it useful. I don't know how to better present this, but here goes. Avadon Abilities

How about several sources of +%dmg - how are they added together?
  9. Originally Posted By: Marak Also, the best stat in the game is generally "+ % Physical/Magic Damage", which is another reason why Broadswords, etc. are superior. Most of them grant 10% more damage vs. the 5% that lighter one-handed weapons typically give you. I've been thinking about this... The damage listed on a weapon (or skill) takes into account the chars abilities (and skills). However, it does not include +%dmg, right? So to calculate this dmg one needs to add the +% to the avg dmg manually. How is this done, exactly? Related, but different; 5%dmg(or armor)/level at skill level

    I had the idea that the remakes of A1-3 would be bundled in one game. Did I make that up in my head?
  11. Sorry for nitpicking your wording, I just want to be sure of this. Originally Posted By: CRISIS on INFINITE SLARTIES All abilities gain bonus levels of damage from character level. Most abilities also gain bonus levels of damage from a stat and some also gain them from a weapon. The following combinations are possible When you say that those combinations are possible you are actually quiet certain of them, right? Because if your are, I will trust your analysis blindly Also, question gone unanswered: How does one figure out the base damage of an ability/weapon? Wha

Used for SW (Searing Pot, Lightning Pot, Steel Tornado) and SH (Call the Storm, Earthquake, Earthshatter). I have no id
  13. I didn't bother reading this entire thread, but one thing I think is really annoying (so much I plan to e-mail SW), is that I am unable to see the stats while equipping my characters. Flipping between the panels to find the optimal equipment is troublesome. One more thing. Encumbrance is unclear in the inventory screen. Carrying 74 lbs out of 74 lbs is sometimes overencumbered (truly 74,1/74) or not (truly 73,9/74). I'd like to know without having to trigger combat.
  14. And how about item collection quests? Any items to hold on to?
