Hah. The first time I played MM7, years ago, I put on the wet suits and left all my gear back in Celeste. Craftily sneaked around the sharks almost undetected, got into the Portable Temple, rooted around in there for HOURS, and then sneaked off to the Lincoln.

Ouch. No gear.

I did try the judge, but he says I never had it, and of course he's right. Not being particularly good with cheats, I'll have to go back from an earlier save. Not such a big deal, I guess, except that I had just scored HUGE on magic armour from ore when I discovered my mistake, and I know I'm not li...

MM7 - Any way to fix a broken promotion quest? Help!

I cleared out the Mercenary's Hideout in Tatalia a while back, but did not get the Heart at that time -- I did not have the quest yet, so i didn;t take it. Now that I have the quest, I've gone back, and the chest that the Heart is in will not open. All of the other chests will open, but not that one...

I really thought that regular weapons worked best, especially with my knight usng two swords at level 18 GM. This time, though, I will try having one party member with a very high level in Blasters and see what happens.

I turned my acceleration down to the lowest level, and that seemed to work pretty well -- not problem-free, but close.

Oh. Never mind. I got MM6 working, at any rate.

Is there a way to make your party run in MM6? It seems awfully slow to me. I don;t mean the game speed, I mean the speed at which your party walks around.

Hmm. Water Walk. Of course. I will try without. I had started a new game, but kept all my game saves. I really wanted to put my level 75 party through the final scenes.

Ooops. MM7. Where did my full screen go?

Something happened in my game -- an internal error -- and when I restarted the game it will onyl play in a mini-screen. I'm playing on XP, and this is my third game on this laptop. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but it's still only in small screen format. How do I get it to play in full-scr...

Now that's another spell I don't use very often. Prismatic Light nails a roomful of nasties so well that I often just use that, combined with my Mage casting Inferno (I think that's the one -- gets everything in the room).

Can't get to the Shoals

I have thf inal quest and my party members have their wetsuits on, but I can't seem to walk out to the Shoals. Last time I played I just walked out, and got the travel screen This time, I've walked and walked, but I can't get out to where I need to go. I get to just where the water gets darker, and ...

Will the Rev4 Mod work on XP?

I'd like to try installing it on my laptop.

The game itself runs very well, but I've had to tweak it a little. I've turned my Hardware Acceleration off, and I'm playing in in 98 compatability mode. I've only noticed a couple of bugs; notably, in my current game, the Oldest Tree Quest is broken.

Ancient versus...um...ancient weapons?

Is it worth putting a whole lot of points into the Blaster skill? I have about 150 skill points saved up for each party member and am about to cross the reefs to the Lincoln. My fighter has GM (15) in Sword and Blaster right now. My Archer has GM in Bow and Mastery in Blaster. My Archmage and Cleric...

I didn't use Paralyze in my last game. I tried using it a couple of times and it didn't work, which led me to believe it wasn't helpful against high level opponents. This time -- well, I cleaned out the Titan Stronghold and raided the Dragon Caves, just for fun! Actually, I had so much fun raiding i...

I like Arcomage. I usually play a game or two at the inns just for fun. But I always enjoy the in-game games. Once I got the hang of it, I loved swoop racing in KOTOR, although learning it was a nightmare. The thing is, none of the quests in MM7 are particularly hard once you have Fly, Invisibility ...

Since this has been bumped -- no quest in particular that I dislike -- quests that I found difficult last time I played were easy this time around --but one area I find endlessly annoying is the whole Passage to Nighon area; too many Gogs and Magogs and their foul spawn the Goglings, too many Minota...

It's funny that in all my many years of gaming I have never followed an "evil path" game, unless you count having a character with evil propensities that still ends up playing essentially a good path, or at least a neutral one -- I'm thinking of Morowind and Oblivion, where my PC is essent...

Dark or Light magic -- MM7?

I finished my Light Magic game, and am at the crossroads where I have to choose...and as I've played the game through on Light Magic, I thought I might try Dark Magic. What's the difference in the game? I know that it's an evil path, but is the magic stronger? Are the quests completely different? Is...

Entrance to Lincoln

I'll probably find it as soon as I post this, but I can;t figure out how to get into the Lincoln.

Where's the door? I've gone around the ship about ten times but the sharks are gathering and I don't have many healing potions, so Ican;t really ecplore much.

Original game.

Yes, I finally got my mage promoted. She's really only got a couple of spells that are worth using, now that my Priest has Grandmastery in Light.

Next time I'm going for Dark Magic, for a change.
