Re: Amiga - Starting a new run!

Hi, BUGS; -bards do multiple attacks (sigh)(same bugs as BD1) -warriors only have one attack (same bugs as BD1) There's also an overflow bug with the Hunter's Critical Hit ability; it resets every 16th level. Too bad about those other bugs too, combined they make the Amiga version not worth it IMO,...

Re: Somebody needs to be the first to post

Dragon Wars is often hailed as the unofficial Bard's Tale 4, but IMO it was more like Wasteland, with the skill system and unlinearity. The best things about Wasteland was the setting (not as generic as Bard's Tale), the writing, less random encounters, and multiple solutions to solved problems. But...

Re: BT 3 MSDOS version

...and so, as one god dies, seven other gods are born... http://i.imgur.com/oZJAaIB.png (and one old man revealed to be The God, not very surprising) The last few battles were almost a bit hard, but the odds are so overwhelmingly stacked in the party's favour that even a company of Black Slayers and...

Re: BT 3 MSDOS version

Thanks, drifting. 1. Yes, that seems consistent with my experience now. 2. Ah, that's nice to know; I thought the spell was supposed to always work. One of the best reasons to have a Paladin in your party and make him the leader. Being pushed away all the time would have been maddening when you spel...

Re: BT 3 MSDOS version

I'm about to enter the second level of UnterBrae now, and I'm pleased to see monsters' special attacks working. I really missed that when playing the Amiga version 20+ years ago. Oh, and typing in spell names instead of choosing from a long, unalphabetical list is really great, preventing me from go...

Yes, I'm using DosBox. Can't run thiefp.exe in 64 bit Win 7.

Files attached (I hope).

Re: BT 3 MSDOS version

Problem: game keeps crashing (or freezing to be more precise) if I try to add members to my party at the Refuge Camp. My party has just started exploring the Catacombs when my Rogue was killed. I was gonna replace him with another character until I could resurrect my rogue, but that does not seem po...

I looked to see if the patch was listed in the main download p...
