Yes, somehow I knew the emulator issue would come up. As a matter of fact up till now no one has successfully produced a PS2 emulator, even half a year before the next PS iteration will appear on the market. I don't know about the Xbox, though. I'm not asking for others to produce an emulator, I'm w...

Xbox / PS2 to PC converter: Feasible or pointless?

I'm a PC user, and don't own consoles of any sort. However many games nowadays are produced primarily on consoles, and don't have ports or equivalents on the PC. Even ports and their equivalents take quite some time to appear, from a few months up to a year later. I was wondering if it would be poss...

RPGs are primarily meant to be single player affairs. I don't feel that the single player gaming population has grown smaller or less financially capable, or outgrown itself (age-wise). However, compared to the supposed potential gaming market, which is very much fixated on multiplayer gaming, the s...

Different character crystal bonuses, no penalties to LS/DS force powers. I'm not sure but I think LS/DS force penalties are more than the force benefits for your opposing side and your own side respectively.

I finished as a level 16 Consular / level 10 Master. Played on difficult mode, and the only problem was Traya because she resisted all my force powers and did 150 damage to me with one hit (meaning she takes me out in 2-3 rounds, 4-5 if I turn on shields and completely buff myself). I had to use mas...

One thing I do NOT want to see - and sorry for those who want them - FPS style game play where I get to chose when to block or strike or having a 'snipe mode' to hit others' heads. If I want to play an FPS then I'll jolly well play an FPS. Bioware and Black Isle (and thus Obsidian) were famous for t...

@Obsidian - I'm Singaporean. All Singaporean males 18 and above have to undergo a compulsory 2 years of military service. People who sign up for the military number very little, but we have a population of 4 million only, so we have to rely on recalling the male citizens if there's trouble. However ...

I'm curious as to what sort of standard environments US infantry train in. Do they have adequate urban warfare training? Do they train in different climate conditions like hot / humid or cold / dry, jungle vs forest vs desert? Not that I'm questioning the training system, but I'd just like to know w...

Hmm. I don't smoke and I drink only on occasion, and I come from Singapore, where drug trafficking faces the death sentence. No way to get a lenient sentence (jail) - the only way out is to prove that the drugs found on your person were planted, and that you are totally innocent. And the drug carry ...

The primary stat in BG2 is intelligence, although I have a feeling it doesn't really matter, since the sorceror can't write spells into his spellbook, and there's no spell penetration in BG2. I'm not sure if there's a limit to what spell levels you can cast with a limited intelligence. AFAICR that's...

Huh. If the 'Chinese phrases' were really standard Chinese words then it'd be exceedingly funny... and highly intelligent. However they're just nonsense words, and it makes the joke pretty lame.

Animal Farm is a satire of Communist Russia. I can't remember the details since I did pseudo-literature lessons in school on AF when I was eleven (that's ten years ago). AFAICR the pig that ran away is supposed to represent Trotsky, the leader of the pig is supposed to be Lenin (I think), and Boxer ...

Oh, is that so? Perhaps I should replay the last battle. As I said I couldn't exit out of the last area and had to CLUA out. Perhaps that's why I didn't get anything.

Ah I see. The description for the 2nd component was some 'game-hosing script' or something like that - couldn't make any sense of it. Ah well. Don't intend to wear armor either. I'm perfectly happy with a sorceror who can cast insect plague and creeping doom.

For some strange reason I'm unable to make my Druidic Sorceror wear armor, even though it's stated in the readme that it's possible. All armor just shows as unusable, and I'm not sure how to wear both a robe and armor (click the use item's special ability button? Huh?). Neither can I use druid weapo...

Thumbs up for the Gibberlings 3 Anniversary mod - Highly amusing and well designed quest - had plenty of fun playing it.

Copy your game to the mpsave folder, load the savegame in multiplayer and change the character. Then save again and copy back to the single player save folder and load that edited savegame.
