phpBB is the right way to go - well done in importing the db. Your test board is getting overrun with bots because the default catcha in phpBB is useless. recaptcha is similarly crap. We installed this on my board and reduced the spam registrations by roughly 90%: http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/m...

I remember this problem... the War Axe is completely useless - as I recall it's better to stick with the Biting Axe and Spiked Club until you get hold of the Sharp Axe. The next "booby prize" is the Combat Axe - it suffers from a short haft... Both of these can be hurled at an enemy (or over the bat...

Do you have any kind of mouse software running in the system tray? Are you sure vsync is enabled? Also test the game with the OpenGL render to see if the problem persists.

Please enable (force) vsync in your graphics card's control panel. This should solve the problem by locking the framerate to the vertical refresh.

It may be related to vsync make sure vsync is enabled in your graphics card options. Run all of the dxdiag tests and look out for any failures.

Those images are from the late Angus McBride's LOTR work. I'm pretty sure that was the only fantasy related work that he produced, the bulk being illustrations for historical text books. The Orc is pretty much an exact match for the Orcs in the game, the sword also. The wall shield in 003 is indeed ...

Polite Notice Regarding Duplication...

Could we keep the duplicate posts and threads down please gentlemen? The last thing I want to see is yet another database problem. I'm talking in particular about all the threads in the modding forum that are actually related to the same mods/subjects. Also there is an edit facility for each post yo...

I'm currently playing as the barbarian heading into the abyss for the <i>final</i>, final round up (last of the four characters). After this little revival I'll head back to Medieval Total War. I sometimes doubt I'll go through BoD again... but I said that last time. The 3rd person genre lost it's c...

The idea behind timestop is that it "stops time", that is everyone/thing is paused while you can run about normally casting other spells, attacking or getting to a good vantage point. This is a Baldurs Gate / Icewind Dale type of spell. I'm not sure how you'd inpliment it in BoD though... as you'd h...

Example of "book" method taken from Hexen II, where it worked well:

Look at the images towards the bottom right.

Of course it's your decision, I'm just providing some input. [;)]
