    Lots of things. Mostly RPGs.
  1. This no longer works, and the code actually looks very different: Any idea of what needs to be done to make this work? I'm amazed that there are no regular mods for this available anywhere. Edit: Also, the whole thing refuses to compile even if I change nothing. What a trainwreck.
  2. Amazingly, this is still not fixed. The quest skips two steps when entering the cave, and there appears to be no way to trigger only the first step - the entering of the cave - without also triggering the quest state stating that you've dealt with Korgrak. Edit: The workaround is to set the globals "b_Rumbald_Ogre_Resolved" and "b_Rumbald_Ogre_Attacked" to "0", and then immediately upon entering the cave, teleport (via cheats/IEMod) to the trigger point of Korgrak's conversation, and then resolve it however you wish. Then when exiting the cave, you should get two updates; one saying you discovered a cave, and another saying you've resolved the situation and should return to Rumbald. About 20 minutes of research confirms that these Globals are set to 1 when you kill Crothar the Ogre in Crëgholdt Bluffs, suggesting that the lazy ****olds for developers simply copy-pasted Korgrak and renamed him, or something. This also permanently ****s up some quest state/id somehow, which cannot be properly resolved by console in any way I know, causing the "double-update" when entering Korgrak's cave; likely because killing Crothar in Crëgholdt Bluffs already advanced the quest before you even had it. And since any and all support of PoE has effectively ceased, this will likely never be fixed.
  3. Christ, this game is still in shambles in terms of bugs even today. Just ran into this. Not getting the final key from Uariki.
  4. I must say, I'm amazed that this is still not fixed. This has to be some kind of record low in bug-fixing. Edit: I managed to work around it in ~1 hour whereas Obsidian hasn't fixed this in 3 ****ing years. Save before entering the cave. Change the Global "b_Rumbald_Ogre_Attacked" from 1 to 0. Enter the cave, but do not move, instead, teleport into the Ogre Den using the Ctrl+J cheat key. This will circumnavigate the trigger at the start of the cave (which will move the quest state two steps as if you've already talked to Korgrak), and trigger the conversation with Korgrak. Talk to him, then clear the dungeon backwards and proceed as normal. Seriously though, how can you leave a major quest like this for 3 ****ing years?
  5. While the enthusiasm is cool, I feel it necessary to point out that PoE really isn't a crawler, but fair enough.
  6. Why would you, though? From an optimization standpoint, you should stick to Clothes or Heavy Armour. A clothed Monk can make a devastating damage-dealer.
  7. The point about the overworld is a good one, too - anyone that's been out late at night, away from the major cities or large green houses (seriously, those damn things), would know that night is really, really, really dark, unless there happens to be a full moon and clear skies. A torch or minor light source gives you considerably better vision, but in a very small radius, and as it blinds you, everything outside of it is likely to be pitch black. Meanwhile, you're made visible from miles away. I really hate how in many modern games, there's really no meaningful difference between night and day, and you've got perfect 20/20 vision either way. If Skyrim had proper lightning, you'd have to make camp overnight, and even a small town would stand out as a beacon against the clouds of the night sky. And I love the very thought of coming down a dungeon with my torch, and either it tips off the people down there, or I can see the flickering lights in the distance myself. But more than than, the fact that the enemy would need light sources too, there's the fact that a good many would not need any at all, whether they're spiders or slimes, and it'd just make them so much more horrifying. Makes it so much easier to appreciate the existential horror of living in a pre-industrialization society, where there's something evil just past the reach of your fire, and everything that can see your torch in the distance likely wants to eat you. Well, first of all, saying that torches don't get used up is a pretty big assumption. In a system employing this, I'd expect torches to get used up, unless they're enchanted. But more importantly, you'd only be able to see as far as the light reaches, and you'd actually need to have ways to carry that light, whether it's carrying a torch in your off-hand (which poses the interesting question as to whether you'll use it for fighting or not; it might get damaged, or snuffed out mid-combat) or having a magic sword or a dedicated spell. And obviously, encounters and dungeons would have to be designed with this in mind - but I absolutely think that entering a dungeon should be done knowing full well that you might be risking life and limb, fortune or not. Hell, we're already risking life and limb fighting monsters, in a narrative sense - I just wish we'd do it in a mechanical sense, too. Honestly, going up against a party our own size should always be a real danger, and I hate how we're slaughtering sometimes entire camps at once, when a stray bullet should be able to put us down. The full fog of war disappears after you've discovered that section of the map, and darkness would have to be accounted for and countered. Fog of war just is or isn't.
  8. Not entirely true. You shot once with the pistol, and then you used it as an off-hand, wielding it like a small but heavy reinforced club. Reloading a blackpowder anything isn't really feasible in chaotic skirmish combat.
  9. Honestly there could be 800 ways to trivialize that particular facet of gameplay, whether it be floating balls of light that you'd automagically recast after each rest, burning swords or glowing cloaks and I'd still love to see it.
  10. Personally, I'd love it, but I'd love all kinds of survival aspects, such as limited resting, the need to carry torches, and to eat and keep hydrated.
  11. Just to be clear here, in a legal sense, both of you are on extremely thin ice in regards to the highlighted sections. No, anything posted on a deviantart or drawcrowd account is not automatically up for use, not even if you credit the artist, and it has nothing to do with whether anyone is charging money or not - although doing so would most certainly make the whole thing way, way worse. Unless the artist explicitly gives permission through some disclaimer, or by marking it as licensed under Creative Commons, under most conditions in most areas, you have no legal right to use any part of their art in any way whatsoever, save - depending on region - as part of criticism or review, and then the thing still needs to be reproduced or copied into a format that does not constitute infringement, such as resizing it so that quality suffers, only showing part of it, or so on and so forth. That being said, the vast majority of artists, and certainly anyone that isn't a nutter, would be OK with you using their art for private use, or to show others, as long as they're being credited, as long as you're not profiting from their work in any way, and as long as you don't claim it as your own somehow. I just wanted to clarify that legally, your assumptions and guesses couldn't be further from the truth. And don't assume that if someone complains, that it would be hard or pointless; some artists pursue legal action relentlessly, and although it would be hard to prove who did what (since most herein do not use their real names, nor on sites as the Nexus and so on), it can potentially be quite profitable. That being said, once they have complained, if you comply to remove their artwork from whatever context they're whining over, and you have not made any money of it, and the act cannot be considered to have misrepresented the artist or their artwork, it becomes hard as hell to formulate a case. So, ask when possible, always credit the artist if at all possible, and if an artist complains to you, drop that thing like a hot potato covered in burning oil. Especially the last thing. I'm not sure about the U.S., but I know many countries have a "good faith"-clause, where you as the artist have to ask someone to not use this or that artwork, before pursuing legal action, unless money or misrepresentation is involved.
