Tenderfoot Thahd xenogears Posted April 13 Share Posted April 13 Thanks to the diligent work of the forum community here, I was able to get Blades of Exile running on Windows 10! I decided to boot up a few of the highly-rated scenarios I never got a chance to play, Chains and Shadow of the Stranger, which have both been great so far. However, they also each have me stumped at different parts! I know it's a bit of a longshot seeking help on these scenarios nearly two decades after their release, but I figured I might as well ask. In Chains, I'm quite stuck during the sequence where you have to find evidence against Linda. I found Zankozzie and received his upgraded Piercing Crystal, which I assume is meant to be used on the red barrier in Fedoric's room, but I can't figure out how to use it. Zankozzie said to "place it on the barrier and break it," but dropping it on the barrier tile doesn't avail me. My other current leads are * find Linda's contract (hoped it would be on or around her parents' graves in the Avendale memorial, but no such luck) * the password-protected painting in Linda's room (no clue) * Vark will help me find Zephirius' disciple if I can find a piece of his clothing (where could that be?) * rumors of Linda passing through a wall in the northwest when wearing a special robe - found the building, but can't get in * a coordinate-based portal in the southwest of town, which I obtained permission to use, but says there's "no reason to enter it" when I use it. Quite a complicated sequence. I don't know if anyone recalls the progression here. For Shadow of the Stranger, it's much simpler. I just reached Chapter Two, and was told to go to the brotherhood outpost in the mountains before I talk to Gwennyth. When I go there, I find a rather devious puzzle - an endless corridor in the west, and a stalagmite with a hidden button. Pressing the button doesn't do anything obvious that I can see. As I head up the corridor in the west, stepping on one of the tiles gives the message "Click", which seems to reset the button on the stalagmite. But no combination of the two seems to let me get past the endless hallway, and there aren't any secret passages around that I can find. I'm quite stuck on this one. I recall reading that there were walkthrough files for both of these scenarios, but they may have been hosted on a now-defunct site, as the scenario folders didn't include them. Any help is much appreciated. (Although, of course, I know it's a bit of a stretch. :p) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
