    Usually they have backup weapons, but in the end it's up to the specific scripting / AI.

    Well this enemy crossbow unit didn't have any melee weapon to switch to upon exhausting his ammo. He also didn't use any combat maneuvers against me. He just stood there while my monk punched him to death:
    Also how do you get that Chalice mod to work? It's been spitting runtime errors at me every time I try to launch it:

    Ah, the Moathouse archers had their sidearms removed by Co8 because they would sometimes unnecessarily switch to them.

    Dunno why the KotS module crashes, could be that it requires a dev build, I'll have to check.

    ToEE is fantastic, even today. Just reading this thread makes me want to go back and play it but I am playing Solasta right now (which is even better!); in fact Solasta takes a lot of inspiration from ToEE (including far superior opening vignettes) as well as Wizardry 8 (character personalities). Also I don't want to have to do Hommlet again. Still, I miss the feats at char gen and level up, which is unique to ToEE sadly (Solasta has too few). WotR will have TB from the ground up so looking forward to that as well and KM's TB is great as well, but the Pathfinder games go from level 1 - 20; ToEE & Solasta start and remain at low level and are in a low level setting and world which gives it its own rustic, gritty charm. No retarded races with wings, avian features etc either (just wish Solasta had Half-Orcs)

    However do NOT install the Co8 mod; it adds retarded weeaboo shit like Cloud's sword, pokeballs that act as Summon Monster scrolls, and various other demented faggotry.

    Co8 Mod...avoid like the fucking plague.

    It does run on the normal release build, just verified.
    Just to make sure, in the module selection did you choose zmod_kots or zmod_kots_core? It should be the former.
    If that's not it, can you post the logfile? It's in c:\users\USERNAME\Saved Games\TemplePlus

    Ah, apparently it relies on Co8 being installed as well. Comes with the territory...

    Thanks. It worked. Apparently I had Circle of Eight installed but didn't activate it on the front end UI thingy. Works fine now:
    By the way. Where do you find the Vampire Lord in the main game? I explored all of the temple but didn't spot him. He drops a rare sword

    Careful, the swords he wields or even the one you could get as a reward* require a specific alignment** to equip them.

    Show Spoiler
    *For freeing him from the Temple (you have to wait for 1/2 in-game month for rewards to show up, same for the princess you can free.

    **I'm not sure, Chaotic Neutral, i think.


    Nothing beats a holy reach weapon though...
    Or Oolghrist with Frostbrand...

    Any non-evil alignment is fine, but good provides more benefits and chaotic good provides the best.

    Thanks for sharing the mod Sitra. First encounter is pretty easy - though it took me a couple of tries.
    Show Spoiler

    Sadly that's all she wrote for the mod. Only one encounter. Here's hoping the mod maker stays motivated to continue his work. It'd be cool to experience Chalice on ToEE engine.

    I tried it for the first time a few months ago and lost interest in the first village (even though I've been told countless times that it's the worst part and then it gets much better). I'll try my luck again once I finish what I'm playing right now.

    Agreed. I would rather play the buggier version and bash my head against that then use that mod. The people who made that mod need to learn what it means when they say no added content. I want bug fixes, not what encounters they think make the game better. Essential mods should include only what is essential and nothing else. If I want extra content, i will choose that option.
