    Ah, I see. Besides, it sounds better with some actions/verbs than others, I guess. It's fine as it is now then.

    It's too hard because retards are using the same attack on every single type of enemy.
    Use smash on worms and slash on flowers and your attacks are actually going to make some damage.

    Obviously too intellectually straining for some morons to figure out, R00FLz!

    Too hard? This game isn't hard at all at the beginning. Maybe later on but I wouldn't know yet. These "reviewers" play for 10 minutes, get wiped by ?WORMS? then rage quit like children. All bad reviews can be wrote off as butthurt sapes who kept saying the game was never coming out, they're so assblasted that they handle their cognitive dissonance by saying shit like "well it's a piece of shit anyways, Cleve can't program worth a damn, 0/10" or they are just pure mental midgets and don't understand how to play video games.

    Okay I played about 6 hours now and decided to take a brake.

    I'm surprised no one is mentioning the fact that Cleveland Mark Blakemore actually fixed those bugs in record time. Even the annoying bug where the music volume reset to max on game start is fixed.

    Come on give the man some credit, that was awesome.

    Game related, I've started in Eerie Wastes and within a couple of minutes you're in a village. At first I was bummed out thinking I chose the easy start compared to the forest until I realized that merely walking from the house where I squat to the store was a non stop quest to protect my virgin butthole from getting cornholed every other step. It's grorious.

    The game has a lot of nice surprises like discovering safe havens to sleep or that by sleeping near a lit fireplace replenishes your stats in record time.

    When you visit a store, use all your items on the shopkeeper, he can identify stuff for real and puts an entry in the journal for some of the more puzzling artifacts.

    I'm willing to bet that in addition to monsters having different resists to attack types, each attack type probably also has different modifiers per Wizardry

    For those that have no issues running Grimoire (or have fixed the issues and can now play), I'm curious to how Grimoire holds up after hours and hours of gameplay. Steam babies are not reliable with their 0.5hr play times and continue to be decline degenerates. Any game-breaking bugs 10+ hours into the game?

    Starting in prison, after the first battle loot gives the 'special Key'.
    Log Sez:
    Never mind the Scale to Fit--> "Scale Window" clips eats couple of pixels off the fullscreen game.. as you can see, some portion of the real game window edge is missing all around. :) Too tired and too hot here late this night to write a negative review. Will try again tomorrow.

    Back to ELMINAGE GOTHIC!!
    Where I have solved the ugly "coin machine sound in the menu"-problem! Anybody hates the friggin, loud, annoying coin machine sound that you have to endure every battle turn, when selecting anything in character choice for BATTLE ROUND options *** PM me for the amazing solution of switching off that sound: makes ELMINAGE GOTHIC so much more enjoyable! At least that game
    + starts fullscreen,
    + has no apparent bugs,
    + has smooth graphics,
    + scales to fullscreen beautifully and a
    + joy to play compared to ANCIENT Grimoire with pixelated 16-bit graphics, clipping - eating away from the game screen at fullscreen and crashing without the opportuity to save..........:(

    Came to say that I have the exact same crash as mercyRPG

    Looting the gate key from Aquavia (or whatever it's called) causes the game to crash with "ERROR 'ResPack.cpp' Line 671 Data Record Index Exceeds End Of Binary / 19"

    Finally got around playing it. I made my team around a certain theme (2 x berserkers, Ranger, Thief, Mage and Cleric) and left two free slots in hopes for getting additional team members later on. Let's see how it goes, I'm probably not too intelligent to play the game properly.

    Did I miss it or has nobody mentioned that Cleve segregated smooth moving and smooth turning? With all the bitching about the turning, I'm surprised I haven't seen people talking that up.

    I have 7 hours played and so far I am quite happy. Slight learning curve remembering how to pick locks and a few other things, been years since I did the superdemo.

    90% of negative steam reviews are just morons who bought it, only played for a few minutes, wrote a nasty review, then got a refund. Ignore them, they aren't actual gamers, just bored children.

    But those settings don't actually work separately. If I enable smooth movement but step by step turning the turning will still be smooth (and bugged).

    Already got about 150 'butthurt' ratings from this thread alone.

    You might just drive me off this website for good.

    Maybe. :roll:

    How do you lock pick? I know how to pull up the menu but I don't understand the mini game thing to do it.
