  1. This board game is made by http://www.zeroradiusgames.com/ and they will get the lion share of the profit. Obsidian will get some bits of it, if the sales are high. So in that sense this "project" is doing very well, Obsidian is not in it for profit, just to spread the earlier mentioned "brand". I will post the link to this profit sharing, as soon as i find it again. (or one of you Obsidianer's could poke in and clarify your intentions)
  2. Not to be rude, but I wonder if you understand that UI designing and programming and pathfinding and companion AI are done by different people whose work don't influence each other in anyway. And when they promise that feature that allows you to change character portrait and sounds set during game will be in next patch don't mean that they don't improve or at least try to improve those AI and pathfinding issues even if they aren't in next patch, but instead it just is the fact that enabling changing portrait and sound set during the game is much faster feature to produce than fixes for AI or pathfinding, which may even need full overhaul before they work as good as they want and there is no point to introducing quick hacks that don't solve issues fully and have potential to create more issues than they solve. My thoughts exactly, pointless to point out these priorities (p for pendetta!) when their employees are specialised with different set of skills, for different kind of tasks. It's different story with some large corporations like Bli$$ard, whose patching doesn't usually make any sense. But that aside, i'm rather pleased with the rhythm you guys are squishing these bugs flat, no matter the order.
  3. What exact version of the game do you have? Hero/Champion/Royal, did you buy it on Steam or where, did you upgrade it, did you activate a backer key? My version was a Kickstarter Hero edition, I activated it on Steam with my backer key, then I upgraded it to Champion edition on Steam. I see all the DLCs listed, almanac/soundtrack/wallpapers/ringtones etc. but when I go to install them all, Steam only downloads ~20mb of data and only the Cook Book appears in the steamapps/common/pillars of eternity -folder. I suspect the Cook Book works only because it already came with the Kickstarter Hero edition. Bought Royal (Collector's Boxed Edition) as Slacker-Backer from Pillars of Eternity website, after the Kickstarter. Activated the key and pre-downloaded it yesterday on Steam. Today it made some downloading/Installing after the release time and it downloaded that 1.8 GB reward contest, while i was playing the game. (steam pop-up windows show'd those rewards one by one while in game) If you don't see those rewards in your steamApps/common/pillars of eternity - folder, then it haven't downloaded them yet. Do you have Auto-Upgrade enabled in Steam?
  4. Each reward was in its own folder. To locate your SteamLibrary: Open Steam, cursor over top left corner of the window -> Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folders. Or use Windows search function for keywords like Pillars of Eternity.
  5. Dunno was it answered yet, but here it goes: PoE Steam additional rewards can be found at least from your computer (After the 1.8 GB download is completed) from location : SteamLibrary -> SteamApps -> common -> Pillars of Eternity So in other words, the download folder of steam.
  6. http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/pillars-of-eternity Currently it's at 93!
  7. They might be eating healthy, who knows. (Like myself, at first glance it looks like i am indeed dying, but in reality, my diet couldn't be more healthier.) The spirit of this topic was to ask for preferred snacks with a sparkle in the eye.
  8. Well from where i heard, i think the case of this topic is more like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaqC5FnvAEc
  9. Please don't die mate. Heh not too worry, amounts will be small. (Except for Milk!)
  10. Some Non-Alcoholic Beer: (To get the flavor while keeping clear head to suck in everything from the game) Nikolai Dark Lager (Finland/Switzerland) Warsteiner Fresh (Germany) Buckler (Holland) Bavaria Apple (Holland) And most likely a bag of crisp sea salted chips, some Finnish salty liquorice (Salmiakki, as we call it) and a big glass of Milk. That should do it.
  11. You get two copies, 1x Digital Copy (Steam or Gog) and 1x Disk Copy (DVD). 1+1=2 no?
  12. I'm impressed. During a workday, you just came and grabbed a good idea and implemented it straight into the system. Bravo, Obsidian. Bravo. Auto- slow mode should also become very useful whenever you're dashing around with fast speed mode (while clearing the last corners of fog of war for example) and run straight into some nasty enemies. Will definitely use this mode.
  13. It is looking like everything will be shipped pretty close to release day for folks in the U.S.. International deliveries may be a couple of weeks after release, unfortunately. Once we receive confirmation of delivery from Paradox we will let you guys know. This is really disappointing, I thought the reason for sending the game out without the game disk was so that we would get the game pretty much on time, I live in the uk and was expecting all but the game disks to arrive around the 26th. Now its a few weeks after, then the game disks a few weeks later, hasn't someone already stated the all the physical aspects of the rewards are complete, is this not true? I do complete agree to your point! As I am in Germany I also hoped to get the CE gamebox by 26th of March and not a couple of weeks later. Will the physical goods be sent to europe by ship? I payed 20 $ for shipping only, (190 $ in total). For a small and light game box this is a lot of money. So I expected delivery will by via air mail. Backers should be the first to get the physical goods instead of everyone else who has e.g. ordered via Amazon. I am desperately disappointed! I am also from Germany and really disappointed about this. Could please a Dev clear this up for us? And are we playin the Game at all at 26th ?? Will we get keys to play it at release? I am a slacker Backer with a Physical Order. Physical Orders include digital key for the game, which can be used either in GoG or Steam. So yes, you can play the game at 26th.
  14. The Wheel of Time! Now that would be a game i would like to see, especially from Obsidian. Reading through the books was some journey, must say..
  15. It began with borrowed Amiga 500 + Settlers I game, to a family own'd C64 with games played from casette (freaking long loading time, screwdriver was your best buddy..) and 5¼ inch & 3½ inch floppy disks, leading to the era of 386 & 486 computers, Pentium 1 (75 MHz rocket!), Nintendo 8 -bit & Playstation 1, to finally owning PC by myself (from components, of course ^^)
  16. Can you please looking into my ticket. I been sending it to you on Saturday morning but sofar have not heard back. It was about the shipping costs that I did pay in my original pledge and when I wanted to upgrade to a higher tier I got ask for the full shipping costs again even so it should have been olny 10 more (was going form the 140$ CE up to the 250$ CE) Have not heard back from the support on that matter and I am getting a little nervous and starting to panic that I will not be able to get it in time before you close it all for good. They will contact you, do not worry. I made my ticket at Friday about pledges, and got contacted by them yesterday about it. So you will get contacted most likely tomorrow the day after. Quote from Obsidian's yesterday's (25th of August) post:
  17. Quote from other post: So for now, you can still get digital addons (if you are a backer), but nothing else.
  18. Totally opposite effect is horrible also, as was In Elder's Scrolls: Oblivion, stole a mug from a lonely hut, in the middle of forest, and went to Imperial City with it, which made then the guards come after me..
  19. Did you try logging off, clearing the cookies of the website (Ctrl-F5), then logging back in? Tried that now, but the moment I pressed the "Back now" button I suddenly got "Error in exception handler". Oh well. I guess I'll have to wait till launch. Here is relevant information about the pledges and problems with it: http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/67447-support-ticket-status/ "As long as we receive any order modification requests by the end of August 22nd, we'll honor any changes you'd like to make and make sure that you get what you'd like, even if that bleeds into next week." So if you contact them either by https://eternity.obsidian.net/backer/contact or by email support@obsidian.net , with your desired pledging, i'm sure you will get what you want. You should have 9 ½ hours to make your moves, since 22th of August ends after that time period in Obsidian HQ, California. (We at Scandinavia are way ahead of them time wise, you see.)

  20. Since this 2D - kind of game (+effects and whatnot) certainly will run with any 5 years old or newer PC, it indeed would be fun to know that how weak can a PC actually be. Anyone having some old hardware lying around (as mentioned above, or even older) to "benchmark" this PoE beta to the bottomless pit?
  21. This post made me smile, heh. But seriously, not a bad idea at all. A person could also have a heavier shield in other hand to block larger and multiple attacks, while directing a smaller buckler in other hand for strikes that got through and to make some swift counter-strikes with it. Like a more directed shield-bash to enemy's forehead or to disarm a weapon. In overall, i like it, when there is a usable system for shield in a game, be it a FPS or RPG. To figure out a way to make an use of two shields, now would be ground breaking.
