Bugfixes in v1.47 to 1.49


WINDOWS 98 USERS, please read

Due to a Windows 98 resolution switching problem, going from one chapter (or "act" in the game) to another might crash the game. Please consider this workaround: save before entering the next act (chapter), and restart the game in 640x480 mode. To change this setting, run the configuration tool (a shortcut to this tool can be found in the Larian program group of your start menu). You may then load the savegame and enter the next act without crashing. After your arrival in this next act, save again and quit the game. You can then change the resolution to the one you like best and continue playing.

NEW INVENTORY SYSTEM as of Version 1.4

As of version 1.40, the inventory interface has changed. The buttons on the left side of the inventory no longer act as filtering buttons you can switch on and off. The buttons will now act as tabs. By clicking one of the tabs, the inventory field will only show one particular type of items.

  • By clicking the first tab, you will only see your armour.
  • Clicking the second tab will only show weapons.
  • The third tab contains your magical items (e.g. summoning dolls, charms, crystals...).
  • The fourth tab is where you can find your potions.
  • The fifth tab will only contain your book collection.
  • The last tab uncovers miscellaneous items (e.g. gold, food, drink, quest items...).
