Yesssss. I'm looking forward to it!

I've been poking about the editor lately.  Map building's a bit of a chore, but the learning curve doesn't seem too bad.  The triggers (scripting) is far easier than NWN.  Still haven't figured out team advancement yet, although I do plan on using it on the UGC i'm working on.

I'm curious as to how the animatics for the hong-kong campaign will work.  SRR/DF is rather limited on creature animations.... any additions would rock

Decided to give Shadowrun Returns + DLC a go based on the posts here; needed another kind of game as a way to break from others. No DRM thanks to GOG, so will review it at leisure.

Returns was good - but there is a bit of a sharp left turn as it winds up to the climax - and the last area to battle through features enemies with a particular mechanic that can be quite frustrating (though it is consistent with the story).

The DLC Dragonfall we exceptionally good, in my opinion, amazing. Well worth the price.

Only played a few hours thus far, but it appears to be a good game for a break. Prefer XCOM to be honest, but that may be due to more experience with it. And am still playing DAI, but am only playing it on days when concentration can be maintained.

Hit a glitch that stopped me; used a search to find a fix. But now I am in another pickle, as I am awaiting to hire a new team, but only have 500 credits available, and no money cheat available. Recommendations?

In Shadowrun Returns (and I think also in Dragonfall) you should always have access to some 'free' runners to fill out your team in the case of such a situation.

Can you give a bit more detail on the run you are preparing for? What runners do you see that you cannot afford on the roster?

If you are able to get a screenshot that would be even better.

Not certain, but it seemed to be a side quest offered after I returned to the club from catching the Ripper and infiltrating the cult that used him. So instead, I passed on the NPC for now, and am active on another mission; a paid one full of computer sims.

Ah, you're playing deadman's switch.

Ctrl+~ will open the console.  One of the buttons is labelled "Cheat".  It'll open access to more buttons, one of which is a nuyen symbol (funky looking letter Y).  Clicking on that will give you 500 credits per click.

Thanks! Think I may have lost the mission now, but could come in handy later. Currently am underground hunting cockroaches; immortal ones.

Interrupted my play of Dragonfall with a sojourn through Grim Fandango Remastered.

With Dragonfall, still in the Glory at the Mansion quest, haven't found my satisfactory way through it yet.  Wondering if I'm supposed to fight the multiplying demons, as they seem unbeatable.

You mean the big demon who splits into three?  He's not really immortal.  He just likes to hide in plain sight Wink

Immortal cockroaches... you should have a special bug-zapping shotgun to deal with them.  Harlequin has one as well, as do the Tir ghosts if you hire them.

If you're also in good with Coyote, you can bring her along and give her the shotgun the rich guy gives you.  Coyote's good with shotguns, so it's a nice option if you've focused in another weapon type or in spells.

Out of curiosity, what architype/skills path did you go with?

And I'm currently in skyrim mode.... got my install modded now with 200 mods! (half of which are high rez texture replacements, then of the remaining 100, half are gameplay modifications, and half are updates/hotfixes, and custom followers.

Even have a custom follower named Aurora.... no she's not a dumner though...

And I discovered a great custom follower.... Sofia the funny voiced follower.  Her voice itself isn't funny... it's the nonsense she spouts.  You find her alseep naked and hung over in the whiterun stables after she had a typical night's bender.... inappropriate commentary and snark follows after she joins you.

Took a tip from this thread and have a Dwarven Samurai Mage named McJagger; well versed in magic, defense, and decent in ranged weaponry. Try to keep a Decker and a Shaman on each team, and let Coyote rest as Harlequin was obliged to join. if I were to start again, I might improve CHA and dialogue tips, but this is good for now.

Am pleased with the variety of spells. Try to maintain 50/50 buffs and attack options on my quickbar; currently 6th or 7th tier.

Since you're heavy into charisma, are you using the haste spells?  That extra AP is a huge advantage.  Forget if DMS has multiple tiers of the haste spell, but if they do, each level of the spell is independent of the other... meaning you can cast haste II on yourself, and then cast haste I on a team member the next round.

I find that shamans are extremely powerful, especially if you have a good team.  Haste up as many as possible, let the hired runners/summoned spirits do the heavy lifting in combat while you throw out wall spells or other AOEs, or take your own potshots with weapon of choice (pistol's my favorite because of the auto-reload ability... VERY nice with a heavy hitting revolver).

Plus in DMS, it's always nice using the extra ettiquettes to squeeze those extra credits out of Van Gras when pawning off the bits and bobs you find

Went back to the Estate, and exchanged the Decker for Coyote; still could not give her the Bug Shotgun, but she was more useful overall, so catching up went by quickly.

How does one open locks? I saw a lot of locked doors in game, yet no mechanism were visibly in play for tinkering with them. The best tip I have seen is increasing INT, but it also said that min results would be seen in game.

Quickness was my high score by a single point over HP, Magic, Spell-power, and Dodge. And the number of movement phases was critical enough that I wore that silly bunny outfit for the extra +1 *sigh*. The camera was far enough away that it was not very visible, but I still knew....

And spells easily outdistanced ranged weapons for the PC; would hit more often and for higher crits. Still, having a good score in Ranged To Hit helped with the Bug Shotgun, even if I did not have a single point in Shotguns.

Overall, the game was as linear as anything I have ever played, and could be frustrating at the easiest setting (ie; they hit, and the Player misses). Also one finds out quickly not to bunch up to avoid grenades and AoE's. Still, it provided a good change of pace which was needed.

First, I'm playing Shadowrun Dragonfall Director's Cut... as I don't recognize half of what you're saying and think you must be talking about Shadowrun Returns.

Yeah, the very tall demon boss in the hellish broken house-scape that multiplies into three.  Several times I got him down to one guy, but then poof, he makes more.

My Ramana is a Decker-Mage-Rifle, about level 5 in all of them, with a bit of Charisma, enough for Security Etiquette and another I've forgotten.  Haven't played this in a month.

Yes, the immortal cockroaches stuff was directed at Elhannen Smile

El... yeah, deadman's switch is very basic and linear.  Give Dragonfall a go though.  It's not a full blown sandboxing game, but you do have options as to what order to do many things in.  The storyline is way better than deadman's switch.

As for other campaigns... there are player made campaigns, Nexus has a shadowrun section, or if you're on steam, there's the steam workshop.

My list of suggested campaigns:

Nightmare Harvest (short story, a few gtiches but nothing game-breaking)

Antumbra trilogy (Decent storyline, some very nice map designs with good atmospheres)

A stich in time (Not too shabby... haven't played through it all yet however, but the first chapter's pretty fun.)

Shadowrun Unlimted (sandboxing campaign.  Story/writing is on the weak side, but it's not about the story, it's about just running around doing shadowruns, building up your character.  Can be something of a grind-fest at first, but after the first hour you'll pull out of the newbie-character hole and start having more options to play around with)

From the Shadows - Run (Good story, decent gameplay.  Has a glitch here or there, but overall fun to play)

Jacked-Up (Pre-made character story module, but don't let that dissuade you... it's actually quite good and very well written)

THere's also a load of very short single run modules you can try out.  Honestly though many of them are very poorly written, very poorly scripted, very poorly balanced, or all three flaws at once.

I'm not a steam user, but I do know that there's a load more content on steam than on nexus... as to the quality of that content, you'd have to find out for yourself.

Playing Dragonfall, and hit a game stalling bug during the APEX mission; no Save after killing the AI. Lost an afternoon of gameplay, and must start the Mission again, though I  can find little to help prevent this from happening again as I do not use Steam.

Also, am disappointed that they chose to include profanity in the DLC; far worse then the Vanilla game. This is a main reason I am skipping The Witcher series, and the new Pillars of Eternity game. It is becoming more difficult to find family friendly RPG's, at least new ones.

What bug?  And what version of DF are you running?

As for the profanity, I found it made the dialogue seem more real.  Eiger's personality is exactly the type to toss out that kind of language.

The bug is that after speaking to the AI, all the characters are unable to be moved, and the Quicksave is not longer available. The most recent Save is when entering that floor.

Am playing 2.0.8, I believe.

If playing the steam version, try verifying your local game files, rebooting and then rewinding that save to the beginning of the chapter.

It really sounds to me like some problem or corruption in the game files.... maybe a script or something....

Not sure what script fires at the end of that conversation....  or what it might be checking, either... but if you are getting into the battle it means you got past the convo.... so that is progress.

From what I've read up on, it's an issue involving saves and the mission itself (which has some pretty hefty scripting).

Are you doing any saves/quicksaves during the mission?  Other people have reported that saving mid-mission tends to cause the bug for them.

It may be a bit tedious, but try playing the mission from the start, loading a save just prior to actually beginning the mission, and initiating it from there... and play through without saving. At the very least, try to save before you enter the basement, but not afterwards while you're down there fighting.

To help things along with the fight itself.... what strategy are you using, and which team members are you taking with you?

Sound workable. There is a glitch that does appear after the first Save made, so this might be the problem. Thanks!

Edit: It worked! made it through on the first attempt, and am back in the neighborhood. Thanks to all for the aid. cheers

So, decided to give skyrim a short rest after a massive resorting/revamping of my mods... figured I'd load up Oblivion for some non-frosty hack-n-slash...  It's been many years since I played it.  I didn't remember the names of the core mods I used to have for oblivion but I figured hey... browse through the nexus, it'd jog my memory... was a short list... mostly texture replacers, a couple UI functionality mods, nothing drastic.... Off to nexus' oblivion section...

Holy hannah look at the boobs!

No, seriously... I think oblivion's modding scene has just become a flat out, no apologies, in your face hentai porno simulator!

Even after clicking off the anime nudity, adult content, AND skimpy/sexy content tag attributes for my searches.... boobs boobs boobs, more boobs.  Chainmail g-strings that make chainmail bikini's look like modest molly's granny-panties.

Back over the border into Skyrim's backwoods for me... Not a prude at all... but bloody hell.... the boobs! Cyrodill turned into the redlight district of Tamriel!

The Nexus offers filter setting for ignoring so-called Adult mods from the Search results; should help remove distractions.

Nope.  The boxes are appropriately ticked... it's just that a whole load of oblivion mods are not tagged correctly, thus they bypass the blocking on searches.

I got nothing against nudity... I much prefer nude mods to the default bethesda skivvies... but when the overwhelming majority of "armors" make Eric's overrides look modest... Wink

Got sucked into Star Wars: The Old Republic. 

Played a Jedi first, of course, but have gone on to make other characters, as they have 8 different "class" storylines.

Here's my latest character, a trooper with a large assault cannon. Lots of cybernetic armor parts to look more like a killer droid. It's rather fun to run around and make all "evil" choices while on the "good guy" side.

Still on Harbinger...all my and my kids' characters are on there and we don't feel like giving up the perks we've built up on the account.

This guy's look is actually parts from several different cybernetic "series". And the cool thing about SW:TOR is, if you equip a helmet or mask that visibly covers your PC's mouth, it can alter the character's voice. He sounds more robotic since he's got one of the few "whole head" cybernetic armor pieces.

I was going to give him one of the most outrageously big assault cannons in the game, but the one he is using in this picture shows off the "color crystal" look even when not firing. And he's using my favorite one, called "hot orange" (also seen here used by my 2nd Jedi character).

We get a x12 XP boost until this fall and can skip all the side quests if we want, but with this guy I've been doing them just to have an excuse to shoot and blow up more enemies.

What I liked on SWTOR was the freedom to select any response; not only extreme Dark and Light replies. My Sith Inquisitor was less evil; more Grey then the previous hosts of office. And my Bounty Hunter was even more Light side then his Darth relative. Only the Trooper - also a distant relative - was Paragon in most replies; True Sith's all.

Playing solo to see the stories was enjoyable, but I was unable to progress further on End Game materials due to my restricted reflexes. Still recommended, and the only MMO I have tried.

Oh, yes, def. recommended!  I run two sister PCs: Unnale, a cyborg Jedi Knight (Sentinel), 



and Rsycho, my cyborg Bounty Hunter (Mercenary).



Alas, though I have heard wonderful things about the soundtrack and the voice acting tracks, my machine is without functioning sound jacks, so my playtime mimics the quiet of space ... unless i find some music on songza, like some electro swing or deep house ... but it's not the same!   Sad ... i just wanna hear my Bounty Hunter say something cool!

Is this one that online mmo one? Or is that a single player game?

Lately for me my very sporadic game time's been jumping throuhg massive games trying to find something that catches my attention...

Witcher, sins of a solar empire, bioshock, fallout new vegas, dragon age two (ugh.... nearly forgot how baaaad that one was), tombraider anniversary, plants vs zombies (on my tablet), SR:Dragonfall (tablet), civilization 5 (oh, the many nights where I was supposed to start work at 8 AM and look at the clock, holy hell it's 5 am???), mount and blade warband (damn those battles are fun when you got like 200 guys on your team and there's like 200 on the enemy team... chaos!), age of empires II (or III?), homeworld 2, Dragon age origins (ah, now THAT"S the real DA).

SWTOR is a MMORPG, but is one that can be played solo with scant interference. And with the addition of a couple of expansions recently, it would seem that it remains a fairly active game overall.

And with Knights of the Fallen Empire on the way, it looks to be active for a long while!

Been on a starwars kick myself lately...

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga (just need to complete challenges and superstories for 100% completion)

Jedi Academy (pure jedi swordplay... only time used any other weapons have been a few times to zap tripwires with thermals since throwing the sabers doesn't seem to pop the tripwire projectors)

And, started up a SWTOR account, but haven't had any time to like, actually start up the game or anything (work work work work work work work work work.... more work...)
