  1. you know u can just hit the "select all party members" button and then the "stealth" button right? this will either put everybody into stealth (provided nobody was in stealth or combat already) or if you have some in stealth and others that aren't it will just un stealth everyone, easy
  2. Can't remember the quote exactly, the panel got archived on youtube I believe, will see if i can dig it up in a minute. But I think the question was something along the lines of "was supporting Linux worthwhile?" to which his answer was basically no, but then he went on to elaborate that now they've already gone ahead and put the mileage into developing a game for Linux that to do so again for a future sequel wouldn't be as big of a deal Edit - here ya go, the question was asked around 33:42 (the audio gets out of sync with the video, the time stamp i gave has the relevant audio you're looki
  3. I actually agree with the sentiment there to be honest, always amuses me to see people requesting this feature or that feature and stating it would be easy to implement just a simple toggle in the options when in reality its a lot more hassle than they could ever imagine and can basically lead to feature creep which any developer is quite right to avoid. In the context here where the re spec option already got introduced to the game for the PC and all hirelings though (regardless of whether we agree with it or not) I don't think the OP is being entirely unreasonable..... perhaps resources wou
  4. Thats my point, shouldnt they change? From a mechanic point of view? How can a 3 resovle Durance believe what he does? How can an 18 int Eder's dialouge work.. It messes with the cosistency of the game's mechanics expressed to the player. Also there are mods available right now, that YOU can use.. Which offers what you want Basically the way I see it is that player choice is never a bad thing, If the option to re spec the preset companions was in the game and I went ahead and used that option then one of two things would happen depending on my own preferences. I would either come to th
  5. You provide no "strong" counterargument? In fact your point rest on the assumption that the mechanics of the game are only there to further your particular style of play and internal and logical consitency must naturally take a backseat to this.. Which I disagree with, as do many others. So why is this argument "stronger" than prefering the artistic integrity of the developers original idea of the character is preserved? I'm not sure I understand the problem with re speccing companions, you do realize that if the OP was able to re spec companions and chose to do so that those companions w
  6. its been a little while now since i played but i seem to remember u can hold down the right mouse button and set the orientation of which way you want the group to be facing when they arrive at the selected destination -edit- just booted up the game and checked, can confirm this is the case.
  7. Email Obsidian @ support. Thanks I did a little digging and found this page http://forums.obsidian.net/blog/7/entry-181-physical-goods-i-havent-received-mine-yet-when-are-they-coming/ which had another link on it pointing me to the paradox help desk which I then went ahead and created an account there and raised a ticket, waiting for a reply now. Will also go ahead and try the email u suggested and see which one pops first.
  8. I'm in the UK and had mine arrive this morning, Unfortunately the collectors box while very beautiful and awesome was missing a whole bunch of signatures that were supposed to be there and also the collectors book (which is also meant to be signed) was nowhere to be found, abit disappointing though i'm sure it can be sorted out.....anyone know where to go to raise my issue? somewhere on these boards or perhaps over at the paradox site?
  9. It takes 3 seconds to see their name and 1 second to click on them. There's 500+ of them. It's annoying. Heres a tip to save your sanity ) When running through areas with npc's in just quickly hold down the tab button to quickly show the names of all the npc's on the screen and make a mental note of the ones with yellow boxes on them so you can avoid them.... thats what i do.
  10. I don't understand, what's the difference? A box full of stuff without the game inside is not a boxed version of the game. I don't just spend money and not read what I am getting. They used specific language, and now it sounds like they aren't going to deliver on a pretty big promise for people who went in with more money. Well when you receive the discs, what you do is you take those discs and you put them in where the discs would normally be had they arrived with the collectors box and voila, a signed collector's boxed version of the game will be there in front of you.........
  11. I imagine that the box when it arrives will contain the game disc box/compartment inside it so that when the discs arrive its just a case of putting them in their proper place. as for the notion that some people didn't want to have to break the seal and open the box (but will now have to just to put the discs inside)....... Well without getting insulting I find it ridiculous, I mean why would you buy an edition with a hardcover art book and map etc inside if you don't want to look at them/read them? I mean sure the whole thing will perhaps retain more value if it all remains sealed but I don't
  12. You are correct. This is a strategy guide and is completely different than the Dark Horse Collector's Book. The Collector's Book is the lore and art of the game. Ok thanks
  13. Great question. It isn't like no one will post a detailed walkthrough of basically everything on the wiki. I suspect for some people they just like to have things like this as tangible physical things that they can have sitting looking nice on a bookshelf somewhere or maybe only have 1 monitor instead of having a multi display setup and have the book open next to them while playing for convenience when they need to look something up or even just something to read when away from your PC (yes i know smartphones exist or whatever but give me a physical book rather than squinting at my smart

  15. I'm going to assume that this isn't the case but just to quickly clarify, this isn't the same thing as the hardcover collectors book that is included with some of the pledge tiers right? but is in fact just a physical version of the digital guide that is included on some pledge tiers? just want to double check before I or anyone else as dumb as me (that needs **** spelling out to them specifically) goes ahead and buys something that might already be included in our pledge. I'm 99% sure they aren't the same thing but like i said, just double checking
  16. Just generated key...downloading......**** im on early shift tomorrow really ought go bed but ill be damned if i dont at least have a look at this first lol
  17. I actually kinda like both and im glad torment has gone turn based as now I get my RTwP goodness with PoE and my TB fix with torment, win win )
  18. lol I've been searching for an answer to that for a couple days now, but Obsidian, despite their refreshing transparancy and eager willingness to discuss the development of this game, has been remarkably tight-lipped about anything relating to storylines/plots in Eternity. I'm assuming Od Nua is some.... person. Here's what was said during the Kickstarter campaign about it. Definitely a person, in fact, the builder of the dungeon: In the western reaches of the Dyrwood lies the Endless Paths, an ancient network of cobbled trails that wind through arches of dense overgrowth,
  19. A reasonable example I can think of is the puzzle in the temple in the Umar hills in BG2. Throughout the ruins you came across some writings scattered in different locations laying out the rituals the old inhabitants of the temple used to perform throughout the day in a daily routine. You the player had to read and understand them before being asked questions as to the correct order the rituals were supposed to be performed in. It was simple, logical and not particularly difficult but still added to the experience by illustrating that this long abandoned ruined and dangerous temple was
  20. Anything similar in size and scope to watchers keep in BG2 would suit me....as far as content inside such a dungeon goes....well theres an office full of developers down in sunny california that probably have a much better idea of what sorts of goodies could go into such a structure than I do
  21. I didnt answer the poll, the first question is lacking an "all of the above" choice and I dont know enough about the world for the second question, but one thing I know I wouldnt like is if the factions worked in a similar way as they did in the elder scrolls games. The fact that your character could become the archmage, leader of a mercenary fighters guild, master of a band of assassins, leader of a thieves guild etc etc all in one go seemed especially ridiculous to me especially when you coupled that with little to no reactivity from the rest of the game world reguarding your accomplishments
