Negative. I have the most up-to-date drivers already installed. Exile III is an old game, and I've had this problem before on this specific computer exclusively with this one particular game - no others, nor on any o
  2. Hello people. Once again, I come to your forums a desperate man. I recently fired up Exile III and have encountered a blue screen of death. I am running Exile III on an Intel Gateway using Windows XP pro. Shortly into the game doing any particular thing I get a BSOD. Here is the stop error message... 0x000000D1 (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x85cd83dc) Does anyone have any clue how to fix this...? Feel free to ask any questions that seem relevant to solving this issue, because I'd LOVE to get back to this game...

Neither have I, except on this specific computer. The problems so far have been rather random both in frequency as well as the type of crash whether it be a crash to the desktop or a complete blue screen. So far, however, they've been fairly rare. *shrugs*

(Currently monsters and players have different races available to them, but there are plans to merge them.) Neat. What advantages do the "monster" races get, and what races are there available to the "monster" NPC players? (I think that's what you mean, though I could be wrong.)

Anyhow, I believe I'm having that issue again (since I recently had my computer reformatted) so if it's a somewhat common issue, I'd appreciate any help in the matter. What's your operating system? XP pro. It's a pre-built Gateway 506gr I believe. I had this problem once before and was able to fix it, and curiously enough the problem has yet to reoccur since that last time yesterday. The blue screen of death topic is nowher

One idea was that you were some kind of wight of a long conquered land, who'd awakened because the foreign invaders had become morally corrupt, or somesuch, and you'd spend the scenario searching out other groups that wanted to overthrow them to ally yourself with. WAsn't really sure how to bring the "being lond dead" bit across, other than forever mentioning that town X used to be smaller an

One idea I had was to use the timer to keep track of what fraction of the day it was, hopefully to have day and night versions of towns, and every so often you'd gain or lose spell points depending on the time to represent being weaker during the day and more powerful at night. Mid semester holidays are coming up, maybe I might get something going then. I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled. I

  9. Personally, I'd love it if there was an Exile game where you were the undead. Not the mindless, "rawr, I will keelz u an eet yor braans" kind, but have like spectres and vampires, and other things. Naturally, a zombie warrior or whoever would have low intelligence (at least until you gave him/her more) but they would be a strong fighter. I don't know, but I'd find it to be quite fun. Until then, the best I can do is use the editor and swap out the PC graphics with others I find online of undead/spirits and goof around aimlessly. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Is there already one
  10. Thanks, Mystic. Slightly off-topic question. Last year or so I had an issue where Exile III often caused my computer to blue screen. I recall joining this site to try and figure out the problem, and ended up discovering what it was but have since lost that thread including who I was. For all I know my account was deleted due to being inactive. Anyhow, I believe I'm having that issue again (since I recently had my computer reformatted) so if it's a somewhat common issue, I'd appreciate any help in the matter. Thanks again.

  12. Well I've long since past that point of the game. I've slain the roaches, completed the little quest that the Troglo King wanted me to tend to, and am currently in the Giants' lair trying to free the Empire soldiers and recover their belongings. My team is super strong. And I've never bothered with alchemy myself, and it only takes 2 or 3 trips tops to get so much gold I don't need to bother with it until much much later. I also prefer not to use the editor unless I make a VERY big error, and losing my horses really isn't that bad compared to other, far more game breaking mistakes. I
  13. Nah, I don't mess with lockpicks in the least. I'd sooner just have Guts smash through a door than that, and even then the "unlock" spell is a thousand times more efficient. I just like the greatsword, but it's true the pole weapons do more damage. I'm probably going to do another playthrough with a different team set-up. Perhaps all Sliths, or something. After I complete this round of course. And it's very true that mages, and magic users in general can be solid fighters if built right. They can do as good amount of damage as anyone else, they can bless and/or haste the entire team, and
  14. Defeated the alien slime! Been slaughtering most of the random monsters I come across now. More or less are just an annoyance more than anything now.
  15. Again... I've played and beaten this section of the game multiple times before, and once beat the roaches' quest, but the last time I tried to play the whole thing some things in life came up and I got burnt out. Recently, I started a new game and made a six member party (using the "don't delete and create new people, instead, edit the current members" trick) and so far I've done fairly well. Last time I played the game I discovered that courier or whatever job where you go back and forth from Libras and Squiggus buying and selling the goods, clothing, and herbs. After a couple of trips I
