  1. Hello, is PoE using databases for storing text, game object names, traders item lists etc? or is it coded in the game in arrays? How is it possible that game is multilanguage? are all the text translated from database or some other way?
  2. Hello, I am trying to launch Pillars of Eternity single player game. (I am going to use IE mod as soon as possible) but for pure install on Linux steam I encounter this bug: 1. I launch steam->pillars of eternity or pillars of eternity via menu/games. 2. I click start new game and choose difficulty etc. 3. Game starts loading 4A. Game crashes my computer totally I can't use mouse, sound is stuck, no keyboard shortcuts are working, one of my monitors goes totally black like if I just closed my system - I have to reset my computer. 4B. I can create a character and continue and then happens 4A. I tried steam online/offline, validation of game files, resolution full/window mode. What is this magic? How can I make sure the game is compatibile with my graphic card/settings? I cannot raport it etc. because it totally hangs my computer system. cat /etc/linuxmint/info RELEASE=17.3 CODENAME=rosa EDITION="Cinnamon 64-bit" DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa" DESKTOP=Gnome TOOLKIT=GTK NEW_FEATURES_URL=http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_rosa_cinnamon_whatsnew.php RELEASE_NOTES_URL=http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_rosa_cinnamon.php USER_GUIDE_URL=help:linuxmint GRUB_TITLE=Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

  3. not relevant; i want a global solution (for all actions ; castin spells, movement of enemies etc.) or via game files (to set walking speed at value1 and running speed at value2) not in-game
  4. hello, is it possible to tweak game speed overall or movement speed via game files? when is multiplayer coming
  5. so its not good to create such a game in unity engine? what engine would be better?
  6. Why does it take so long to load map in pillars of eternity vs (baldurs gate or planescape torment or icewind dale or arcanum)? Is the map a 2d isometric view of 3d modelled world or is it made other way? are the characters 3D? is inventory screen recreated each time (i mean memory consumption + new thread) or just hidden and reloaded?
  7. can someone give some insight how does the loading occurs? I mean we have game temporary memory: we put here a map that is loaded, we must store the changes applied to other maps, but do we load all the adjacent maps too? if yes - is it simple thread running when the map is played or how is it managed... does it occur only on map change?
  8. which file is responsible for % of char speed in slow mode and fast mode and normal mode? can it be edited by notepad?
  9. Hey why the games are so linear? Why they do not use more randomness in games? why poe uses a lot of resources compared to other old - school games who needed only 32 MB RAM (and poe start with 1 GB RAM)? i mean its easy to implement roll = rand(1,6) // random from 1 to 6 switch roll case 1 dmg = 2x case other normal dmg it could be used for everything - spells, random loot, random encounters on map generator and etc etc why its not so common?
  10. No, he is not talking about modding. "The original release of Neverwinter Nights includes the game engine, a game campaign that can be played as single player or in multiplayer mode, and on Windows releases, the Aurora toolset used for creating custom content that would run in the same engine." He is talking about the toolset given with the game that allowed players to create custom content. Why do you come up with "I think I know what you mean - you mean THAT" thinking? If you do not know what he is talking about then why do you even start any discussion? You are right on modding it is being done for PoE but it is only for experienced users who can crack inside the game code and have programming skills.
  11. Thank you, that gave me a nice idea for some basic algorithms like; timer = 60 ms each 1ms timer = timer - 1 if timer = 0 choose new action, set timer = 60 ms thread 1: while(1) { timer = 60 ms while(1) { time.idle(1ms) timer = --1 end } if timer == 0 time.new_action_for_all_objects() end } thread 2: while(new_turn) { object.perform_action() function perform_action: { switch conditions_table (int []): case [0,0,1,0,-1,50%,0,0]: object.attack(target) case [0,0,0,0,0,10%,1,1]: object.heal(object) end } } end this is actually heading towards easier implementation than i originally though, you gave me nice insight into the topic, really big thanks!
  12. Hey, can anyone give me examples how are the scripts for fighting written in unity or pillars or baldurs gate or other games you know for example? Any tips on language and things like that? Is it possible to write a 'fighting script' for an character with threads in c# (not in pillars but lets say in my own game) or what else is used for such things?
  13. I hate the "no buffing before combat" for one simple reason. It is fuc illogical. Imagine a party of experienced adventurers lurking through deep dungeon and smelling burnt bodies and seeing wrecked animals. There is no power in the whole universe that would stop them from drinking potion or two before moving towards just to jump on a surprised sleeping dragon. And for the enemies it shoudlnt be particullary hard to implement things like spell sequencer (see bg2 creature: lich) or potions which are drunk by enemy and giving them multiple bonuses at the start of fight. Example: The inventory is divided into things that you wear (and they are given attribute bool dropable = 1) and the rest in the 'magical invisible backpack' called useble items which are given attribute bool dropable = 0 You enter a fight -> enemy uses items in useable items (based for example (if party is 0 mages drink potion 1 if party is mage drink potion 2 if party is archers drink potion 3 whatever) and enemy is boosted as well as your party and the biggest thing: enemies potions could be like "potion of speed"+ "potion of deflection"+"potion of godliness" in one potion (even if u killed enemy before he drink it - he would not drop it so you would not benefit and actually you woudlnt even know that he had such a potion so it would be logical))
  14. I just finished the game (skipping most side-quests etc, because im in a hurry) but this game is beatiful and the story is amazing. Of course its not perfect but every minute played was enjoyable! Thank you guys
  15. its a modding topic so anyone got a mod to be able to precast spells before fights and use potions whenever i want to?
  16. is this still good? I want to play cipher family (he and her) on easy and beat the crap out of enemies for fun (lets say i want to play as least stressful as possible and as hack and slash as possible) so will it fit? btw any mod for removing precast restrictions? I cant cast mirror image before fight its ridicolous
  17. im reading this ... maybe guys try killing kangaax in bg 2 without cheese (demi-lich immune to all but +5 weapons which hits him for 1-2dmg and he has life regen and he cast higest level spells in 0.1 sec) well... some fights are meant to cheese i guess
  18. does anyone have a mod to disable the restrictions on casting spells before fight and drinking some potions before fight? please deliver, OP I belive in you
  19. I read the patch notes and i cry tears of joy almost... not because the game is perfect but because they care and they improve the game ! : D
  20. I finished almost all quests and parallel playing with party. Lol in 6 days u finished all content + you soled game with a monk? Do you leave computer sometimes? :D
  21. 1. I have an image 210x330. I cut a part of it (190x240) and resize it to 76x96. In game image is blurry (the smallest one 44x56) Why? 2. Steps Do as above and put your file 210x330 named test1_lg.png and test1_sm.png to the folder portraits/player/male and then run game create a character and pick your portrait Attached file EDIT: In char sheet and equipment page everything is looking perfect
