  1. Update: I figured out how to fix it, sort of. It works when I change Windows UI scaling from 100% to 125%. It's not ideal, but at least I can play the game again. If anyone knows how to make it work in 100% though, I'd appreciate any suggestions!
  2. Hi, I got The Outer Worlds on release day and played it last weekend just fine. But when I tried to play on Thursday, nothing happened - the game doesn't open, it just flashes briefly in the task manager and then disappears. Doesn't matter if I try to open it directly or through the Xbox app. I updated my graphics driver (Nvidia) just before playing on Thursday, so I thought it might be the problem and tried rolling back, but it didn't help. I installed all Windows updates, I checked Windows file integrity, I reinstalled the game - still nothing. It just won't launch.
  3. I can't even get it to run anymore, it flashes briefly in task manager and then disappears. It ran fine for a week, the only thing that changed is that I installed the new Nvidia driver, so I think it might be connected - but I tried rolling back and it still wouldn't launch. I guess I'll try a full reinstall next.
  4. I'm okay with that. I need to replay PoE and I haven't even started yet.
  5. How's a Kind Wayfarer as a tank, though? I don't expect to do much killing to feed Strange Mercy... So order-specific skills fall to the sidelines. Hmm. A Shieldbearer might work with my character concept too.
  6. This is useful. Is it okay if I hijack the thread a little? I might have asked about it before, but only now do I actually have time for another playthrough, so here's the problem: I want my main char to be a Wild Orlan Kind Wayfarer and I also know I'll recruit Pallegina and Hiravias. Keep in mind that it's more of a roleplay adventure than a hardcore optimized run. With these two paladins in the party, how would you build them? I'd like for one to be more tanky, but I have no idea which one, I'm not very familiar with paladin talents. Any advice?
  7. So all these nerds who stayed in their basements and developed back and mental problems are fine yet when there's a game that encourages them to go outside and be healthy that is lame? Also the Pokémon games are ridiculously full of strategic depth and content. It might not be your cup of tea but to call it barely a game is a lie. Not a personal attack, a stated fact. What you said was a flat out lie. If they need Pokemon to go outside and be healthy then they're already beyond salvation. I'm a nerd yet I find time to go to the gym at least 4 times per week. Its really not that har
  8. Why would you even play it while driving? Eggs stop counting steps if you go too fast - a bicycle can break the limit, let alone a car. And Pokestops have a pretty low interaction radius. You'd have to drive at a snail's pace to reap the benefits.
  9. Because chanters are mind-numbingly boring and wizards are delightfully versatile.
  10. There's probably a mod for everything when it comes to TES games, but Skyrim is a murderhobo adventure and if you removed enemies, you'd lock yourself out of 90% of quests and walk around a very empty world. That said, you can explore and have fun in a relatively peaceful way if you specialize in Sneak and Illusion. Just don't expect to finish any questlines.
  11. What? Here: https://www.gog.com/news/definitive_edition_bundle_baldurs_gate_i_ii_icewind_dale You will not be able to buy the classic versions on their own anymore from GoG. You will only get them with Beamdogs EE´s. Or in other words "buy our product if you want the classics you sheep" This is a ****ing disgrace. I still have the copies I bought elsewhere, but I can't redownload them, so I'm going to rebuy them on GOG right away just in case. Wouldn't want to be left with only my old disks in the digital age.
  12. How about C.) Stay home and not commit a massacre of civilians? He didn't consider them civilians, he considered them traitors.So did he or did he not think murdering them was the right thing to do?
  13. Or you could play a Bleakwalker PC and use Durance as your "evil" priest, since it doesn't seem like being in a party with a Bleakwalker PC would bother him much, if at all ... though I can't speak for any of the other Companions. I could, but I can't stand Durance. Besides, that post was prompted by an earlier one talking about priest PCs.
  14. If I wanted to do an "evil" playthrough, I'd definitely go with a Skaen priest. Such a fun concept. Throw in a Bleakwalker companion and you're set.
  15. Can you just let him go or do you have to lie to the Devil and say he didn't do it? I don't remember the dialogue options.
  16. You can lay down only one trap per character.
  17. My first playthrough was without a priest. I used Durance in my second until I got to White March, where I switched him out for Maneha - I now have Kana as my only support character, no priest, paladin or druid. It's not an optimal party, but it works well enough. All problems I've had so far can be attributed to my inadequate skills with managing my team, not the team's weakness. I'm not sure yet how I'll fare in the hardest encounters, but I imagine I will be fine with just scrolls. I mean, come on, people solo this game, so everything's doable. I won't lie, Viconia is still one of my f
  18. Sky Dragon is the only boss that kind of irks me. Not because I think it's harder than Alpine, or Adra, or the archmages or anything like that. It bugs me that it is part of a pseudo-mandatory main quest. Technically it's not 100% mandatory, but it's one of 4 solutions to a 100% mandatory quest, and by FAR the hardest of those 4 options.You are not required to kill the Sky Dragon to complete Hylea's quest.
  19. You could always use a scroll of Hidden Wonders, but it feels like kind of a waste to spend it on one trap.
  20. Are you all talking about the whole forum or just Way Off-Topic? Because there are women posting in other sections. Not many, as usual on a gaming forum, but some exist. There were more earlier in PoE lifetime, but they have since wandered off.
  21. IIRC, when he reached the Devil's house he ran into another aggressive guy who took him for a villager. He was about to be attacked, so he immediately threw the torch to show which side he was on. You could maybe spin this to say he had doubts and he burned that particular family only to save his own life. But to me he was murderous scum and that's all there is to it. *shrugs*
  22. If you did use two paladins, how would you build them? Would a tanky MC and more offensively focused Pallegina work?
