  1. Pillars of Eternity just updated to 1.0.5 when I opened Steam. Now when I try to launch it I get: "There should be 'PillarsOfEternity_Data' folder next to the executable" I'm using Windows 8.1 x64 with steam and PoE in the default directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Pillars of Eternity" Directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Pillars of Eternity 05/07/2015 07:23 PM <DIR> . 05/07/2015 07:23 PM <DIR> .. 03/31/2015 05:05 PM <DIR> Docs 05/07/2015 07:23 PM <DIR> EmptySteamDepot 03/31/2015 05:05 PM <DIR> Links 05/07/2015 07:11 PM 12,012,560 PillarsOfEternity.exe 05/07/2015 07:22 PM 133,472 SteamworksNative.dll 03/31/2015 05:51 PM 187,584 steam_api.dll 03/31/2015 05:51 PM 6 steam_appid.txt 03/31/2015 05:03 PM <DIR> _CommonRedist 4 File(s) 12,333,622 bytes 6 Dir(s) 132,943,716,352 bytes free I renamed C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Pillars of Eternity\EmptySteamDepot to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Pillars of Eternity\PillarsOfEternity_Data and now the game runs.
  2. Yep that was it, thanks. I had +int 1 enchanted on my armour of the two characters I tested with. Thanks
  3. Kana's Turban (of Intellect 1) doesn't stack with the stronghold's Forum resting bonus (Intellect +1). Is it normal that a gear attribute bonus doesn't stack with a resting bonus?
  4. I just got Sagani, a hunter NPC, and when I activated her Wounding Shot ability she ran right up to an enemy and died... I checked the range on the ability and it says it's 0.5m (base 6m) which makes no sense. The base range is 6m which should be extended by her Intellect which is 13. Instead it's decreased to melee range... My steam's Pillars of Eternity "Current Content BuildID" is 577767 if that helps. My game should be at the latest patch version as of Apr 5 2015 as steam is set to auto update this game.
  5. *Update: Nevermind, problem resolved* I seem to be missing a dialog option when talking with Nedmar in Raedric's Hold Sanctuary. I have freed Giacco, returned to Nedmar, but the this is what Nedmar says to me now: I was expecting an available reponse such as, "I freed Giacco. Now please show me how to get into Raedric's personal sanctuary next to the throne room." I exited the game and loaded it back up and I get the same dialog options from Nedmar. I also tried choosing the "I need to rest" option and then talking to him again, but same thing. I got into the keep through the sewers, through the jail where I opened Giacco's cell and told him to stay put. I killed Osyra, went up to the ramparts and killed some mercs/guards, went back to dungeon/crypt, went upstairs to kitchen, went upstairs to sanctuary, put on robes, sweet-talked my way past all the staff, talked to Nedmar and we agreed that I would free Giacco and then he would get me into Raedric's personal sanctuary located beside the throne room. I went back to Giacco's cell, told him that Nedmar sent me to free him, told him that I'd killed Osyra and that he should leave Raedric's hold. Then he walked off. I went back to Nedmar and I don't have an option to tell him I freed Giacco. I can't upload my save game because it's too large. I also tried to split it using 7-zip so that I can upload it in two chunks, but I get an upload error saying I am not allowed to upload that file type (.zip.001 and .zip.002). Thanks *Edit* I'm playing with the Steam version of Pillars fo Eternity, which updated yesterday. *Edit 2* I forgot to include the status of the quest in my journal: Yes it appears to be missing the part about me freeing Giacco and killing Osyra. *Edit 3* I went back to check the cell again and Giacco is back in it... I freed him again and my journal updated with that fact. Nedmar now gives me the correct options.
  6. Hi, I was browsing through the craft scrolls menu and noticed that the Scroll of Restore Moderate Endurance (Scrolls Level 3) and the Scroll of Restore Major Endurance (Scrolls Level 4) restore less endurance than the Scroll of Restore Light Endurance (Scrolls Level 2). Here is what the values of the available scrolls to craft are showing for me: Craft Scroll of Restore Minor Endurance (Requires Level 1): +10 Endurance Craft Scroll of Restore Light Endurance (Requires Level 3): +50 Endurance Craft Scroll of Restore Moderate Endurance (Requires Level 5): +22 Endurance Craft Scroll of Restore Major Endurance (Requires Level 7): +33 Endurance I wonder if it's displaying weirdly for the scrolls requiring level 5+ because my character is only level 4. I took screenshots, got my output log and my saved game but when I try to attach any file to this post ( file < 507 KB ) I get an "Error This upload failed" red horizontal error box.
  7. Very sure. Besides seeing Fraps was a common theme in this problem, I went over my processes stack with a fine-tooth comb. I thought Steam's FPS counter might be the problem but whether on or off (after restarting the PC) the overlay just refuses to launch while PoE is running in admin mode. I'll try that. Brb. EDIT: Yup that did it! Even works with the Steam FPS Counter too. Thanks! Thing is though... I saw 0% performance improvement from running in admin mode, so ugh... it doesn't look like I'll be using your fix then lol. Thanks anyway. But in case it helps someone else (and in light of your test working) is there no other way to give PoE a free pass to run as admin without nerfing UAC for all of Windows 7? I guess if you could get the steam overlay to be running as admin it could work without turning off UAC, but I'm not sure on which executable or service you'd have to flag to always run as admin or start as a particular service account. I'm also not sure if then that would affect your steam settings due to possibly running under a different Windows user account profile/environment.
  8. This sounds like something that would happen due to Microsoft Windows' User Account Control which is meant to prevent other programs from 'drawing' overtop of the escalated program. As a workaround I would suggest that you set UAC in Windows to the lowest level, reboot, and then steam overlay will also be running escalated (as will all programs that you run). It's not a perfect workaround but I think it will do the trick.
  9. I just experienced an ad with auto-playing video including audio/sound. It was irritating :\ I had to close the wiki page because I couldn't stop the video.
  10. Has anyone played Pillars of Eternity on Windows on a touchscreen? I have a Surface Pro 2 and I'd like to know how finicky it will be to play with my finger or with the stylus. I played BG:EE (for Windows) on my Surface Pro 2 and it's fairly finicky and annoying with things like not being able to hover my cursor over things easily, and not being able to easily move the cursor to the corner of the landscape to move the screen around to other parts of the map. Thanks!
