Re: Drakan on a Windows 8.1 tablet

Everything is working GREAT! The only problem I had was that I didn't install the fixes before I exited the compatibility manager. After reading thru the guide I did it right the second time around. Thanks a million for your help. The problem I had with the keyboard commands are the fault of this un...

Re: General post regarding my game.

WOW, your models look pretty good. It's good to see someone is going to build a new player level. I want to try my hand at it but I kept having issues with the editor and finally decided to wait until I could devote more time and effort to learning the editor and modeler. Once I get it running on my...

Re: Drakan on a Windows 8.1 tablet

I installed all the programs and fixes you provided but it looks like I'll have to do some manual 'mucking around' to get it to work properly. I'll follow your tips for manually tweaking the parameters on the compatibility fix and see if I can get it work. The game is very dark and increasing the ga...

Re: Drakan on a Windows 8.1 tablet

Thanks, UCyborg. Everything went smoothly and the game installed without a whimper. I have a border on both edges but I'll play around with the video settings and see if I can get a better fit. I'm going to put the editing tools and modeler on and see if they'll run too. Since this tablet has Blueto...

Re: Archer Kill of Shaza and Tora

Went thru the valley on foot again but this time I had some extra magic. Rather than a 'pure archer' I had all the first level spells excluding 'fear'. It's a lot easier to get a lock on the dragons if you use a time slow spell followed with a clone spell or visa versa. Pick your favorite technique....

Drakan on a Windows 8.1 tablet

I spent a few hours last night trying to get Drakan installed on an asus t100 tablet with no luck. The tablet uses an intel chip and is supposed to be able to run legacy programs. It starts the install process but only runs for about 15-20 seconds then the disk activity light goes out on the drive a...

Re: placing the stones

You're in the wrong spot. You're in the cave where you get the key to open the door to the right cave. You need to be in the cave that's by the pond south of the dragongate. You have to fly down and swim the pond to get to the door. You have to climb boxes to change levels in the cave Perry is trapp...

Dragon Illusion Mod

Last weeks episode of the Brain Games tv show featured a dragon who's head seemed to follow you as you moved. It's a real puzzler until you see the whole model. I searched for 'dragon illusion' and found some pictures and instructions to make one out of paper. I was wondering if someone would be abl...

Stirred Dragons?

I was wondering if was possible to kill dragons as a mage. Not sure because I don't know how powerful the 8th level attacks become. The bows and swords top out between 28 - 32 hp so it seems likely. If someone (Outlaw Wyvern) has an 8th level mage save lying about, how about trying this. Go into the...

Details of the Hunt

Thanks for the compliment! I have a hunch you've either done the same or you're planning your own hunt. I'm just trying using Arokh as elevator for this level. I found four places where I was able to deliver some thumping to the pair. And because I'm DYING to tell my tale, I'm gonna give the details...

Archer Kill of Shaza and Tora

I read in a forum some time ago about a player who used a bow to shoot down Shaza and Tora. He used invulnerability potions to help take them down according to the post. But it's possible to kill them with just the Bow of the Order and for me, about 4 hours. Some of the time was used to find the rig...

Dragon Sniping and Bow Power

Went thru the Valley of the Fallen Desert to hunt some dragons as a 'pure' archer (1-8-1). Had Arokh drop me off just short of the gap in the mountains and made my way on foot across the desert. Here's how the bows compare in terms of hits to kill. Dragon Strike - 8 hits : true to it's name, this is...

Re: Is archer good ?

Was gonna try a run thru as mage when I finished the archer run. Never got the skill higher than 5. Didn't know that the mana rate went up faster as the skill level increased, good to know. Are you able to to lock on to a target at a greater distance too? I think it'll be hairy trying to complete th...

Re: Is archer good ?

Here's something to try as an archer. Start a new game. After you get the bow run away from the orcs at the start to conserve ammo. Go to the scavenger cave and rescue the farmers wife just using your shortbow. (Don't forget to say hi to gramma at her flowers. She cracks me up for some reason.) Go b...

Re: level up for mage ?

Oops, I wrote dragon flight and meant to write dragon strike. Both bows deliver a large hit , but you really can't use them up close or you may take damage. I'm doing a cheat run now to see which one is the best dragon sniper. I used the level up cheat to get skill 8 in bows at Sardania after the An...
