Re: All those puzzles

There were 2 friends and myself playing this game independently and at times together, on C64's around 1988/1989. We had no clue book and I can honestly say this was the hardest game I have ever played. This was also the most satisfying because we didn't have the clue. Not that we would not have use...

Re: new member

HI WO, Glad you found us. You maps look great. :) Reviewing you sewers 1 map, looks to be incorrect. The stairs should be at 18N 7E rather than the 10N 10E you have them at. Some other area in the bottom left appear wrong, and you have missed a teleport which may have caused you to err with the map....

I know when I was using the emulator I used to quick save before going into the review board. If i didn't like the level up I got, I would just reload the quick save and do it again until I was happy.

I am currently using a program called, liors map maker. It has a grid, you make your own walls, doors, and other symbols etc and just insert into the grid when needed. Windows 7 and 8 it is not supported on though!

Will post a bitmap made with it of the Tombs in BT2 when I get a chance.

I have a cordless phone, the range is approximately 30 meters! Pretty pointless me driving across town with it when it won't even reach into the paddock.

Re: Backing up your Characters on Mac OS X - 10.6.8

In some of the clue books and references on Bard's Tale site, the authors refer to saving their characters to disk and making a backup copy. This way if you spent countless hours building up characters and then do something unwise or extremely unlucky, all is not lost. After getting my first 3 part...

Darendor, the below is also from the same website. The only thing I can suggest with your previous efforts with BT 1 were that the copy protection was removed from your copies BT1 I remeber we were never able to copy BT1 or BT2 with out burst nibbler and a parallel cable installed into the 1541 dive...

Darendor, Both BT1 can use V1 or V2 of the pirate slayer BTII only uses V2. see links. I am myself trying to duplicate some originals to emulator images, trying to get rid of the trap issue with BTII on emulator images.
