    did you play deepest dark mod which was made by a fellow codexer?
    He was their most fervent supporter and became their most spammy enemy after they diverged from his vision.

    Ok, a quick question if i may.

    Do enemies not drop loot? Or just not at the start of the game? I beat the Green Hand Gang first encounter and didn't get any of their gear. Is that normal?

    Most of the loot were just a throwing weapons or halberd or two. Similar to wiz6/wiz7, but even less amount of the combat loot. Treasure chests, on the other hand, are tightly packed.

    I don't think so (again, similar to Wiz6/7).
    Just use a save/load.

    IF anybody programs in Unity, you should see this asset. It's really useful. It is also a great tutorial on the power of scriptable objects. It was after I bought this that I had my revelation of how to write the core of the RPG Engine to make it infinitely flexible. The ease with which new functionality can be added to any of the modules is mind-boggling. Even people who have been programming a long time in C# are likely to have their minds expanded once they understand how these work.

    https://assetstore.unity.com/packag...flexible-game-modules-to-save-you-time-192960

    I was thinking about this sort of thing in 1994 working on Grimoire but could not imagine how to implement it easily in C++. The thing is to stop thinking of data structures and start to think of everything as serialized dictionaries of data that can even be modified at run-time. Amongst other things, the savegame becomes trivial.

    Did you ever get to the bottom of that evil hacker who introduced bugs into your steam download with his save files, Cleveland Mark Blakemore ?

    I was told by a reliable source this game would never be sold at a discount as well.

    All kidding aside, did this ever turn out any good? I'm not gonna just throw away 2.50 you know? But I did enjoy wizardry 7.

    How does the random encounter frequency setting impact the game? Will I be overleveled with high frequency and underleveled with low?
    What about no random encounters? Won't it starve the party of exp?

    This setting can be adjusted while playing. So if you find you are falling behind, you can turn up the encounter rate in an area to catch up on experience. I found the "Frequent" setting to be appropriate for the content, but I enjoyed Grimoire's combat.

    What would be better to play for the first time, Wiz 7 or Grimwah?

    Wizardry 7 because Grimwah is a spiritual successor to it.

    Wizardry 6 for the best results, but Wiz7 is a good choice too.

    There are always some encounters, even with "None?" setting. Back in the time, "none" (without question mark) setting removed all random encounters. It was a key for felipepepe for finishing Grimoire in 40 or 60 hours, for example. Can't remember exact number now.
    Just adjust a frequency on the fly. Most of the time I had a plenty encounters, but toned them down for travelling through the explored areas.

    How come no one's asking what's new in V4?
