    What I always would have liked is that if your magical aptitude is so high, tech near you, wielded by your friends or enemies, starts to actively fail.
    Gunfighter has more critical failures and misses until he has a complete misfire, bombs thrown don't go off until much later, or go off in air, etc.

    Indeed it would, but then again it does make sense story-wise. Magick has existed since the beginning of time whereas technology's spread is still in its infancy (lifetime of Gilbert Bates. Technology itself is ancient given that the dwarves themselves are an ancient race but their only contribution to its wildfire spread was access to the same to Bates.

    Wasn't I always more the other way around though? Doesn't the presence of technology obstruct magic. It makes more sense that magic would weaken or fizzle out than a tech item would not work.

    Correct again. They both correlate negatively. One always hinders the other.

    The mines are so much better with no melee character, even fun, traps aside.
    I had to let go Magnus when the main char alignment dropped under 0 but Vollinger and sogg are enough for now.

    Made a break, though but i'll finish this playthrough, it really makes the combat more challenging to use a full gunner party along with the races and evil alignment restrictions.

    I would love it if there was a reference to some of the early release newspapers from when the game was released or before hand.

    For example, the Black Root Werewolf or perhaps a kidnapping to solve or maybe a pit fight to participate in or bet on.

  8. Just installed UAP 1.5. The menu lags like shit whenever I mouse over the menu text. Fix?

    Edit: and can't get windowed mode to work.

    Does this patch do anything noticeable in regards to graphics and gameplay or is it just bug fixes?

    Auraculum you may wish to re-read my comment. I wrote that "technology's spread is still in its infancy." Spread does not mean the technology itself but its proliferation.

    Time to make a new character build only to find out I fucked up my stats and point allocation. I just want to make a BAKUNIN that uses a blunderbuss when his awesome oratory skills fail!

    I have used this patch for my playthrough and things were fine for the most part but the ending slides just cut off no matter what. I tried making the resolution 800x600, I got different slides but it also got cut off.

    Really wish there was a highlight items or intractable or something to make searching for dropped items easier. Oh and telling fucking NPCs not to pick up shit.

    Don't think he was going to balance anything, I once had a conversation with him in shoutbox and urged him not to sawyer the fun out of the game and he agreed. Hope he finishes the Race Mod patch before the coronavirus gets him in China.

    I'm envious of magic users. They get to teleport left and right, while the only staff that I relied on to teleport gets fixed in the latest UAP. Now I have to manually travel. Can't even use trains because of Dog.

    Is there a list of improvements and features for version 2.0?
    Would make for an interesting read.

    Hey, when I try to install the new patch I get an error message that says "Extract: Error writing to file Villages.mp3"

    Any idea what I should do?

    Awesome news, thank you Drog.

    Also, summoning ESh since he didn't believe in him and thought that I've wasted 10$ donating to him. Ye of little faith.

    It's worth posting as news IMO.

    Edit:
    BTW, here's a sort of infograph Daegon made a few weeks ago if anyone wants to use it for planning builds and such (for beginners it's a perfect guide):
