 Post subject: Three bugs... one quite major
PostPosted: Fri Dec 06, 2002 2:36 pm 
Well, I've got the second gem and am moving along nicely in the game, but there is one HUGE bug I am dealing with. <br><br>Getting the game to load.<br><br>The windows pop up start menu works only about 1 out of 5 or 6 times. I've had to restart my machine numerous times just to get the game to run. I'm not sure what it is, but most of the time when I click on on the button to load the game, it locks up. No sound effect, no 'thinking' on the hard drive, nothing. Notta.<br><br>I just cross my fingers and hope it loads.<br><br>Otherwise, when it does load the game runs just fine.<br><br>Oh, I did encounter a bit of a bug of sorts... Regarding the merchant in the town. When I put the money in the fountain I walked away 'around the corner' of the library if you will hoping that the merchant would walk up to the fountain. Then I thought, maybe if I go into the library and come back out he'll be at the fountain. No such luck... So I tried talking to him. No mention of the coins. In fact I was ever able to mention it to him. So instead of reloading I kind of forgot about it and hoped it would be resolved later... maybe I needed something else to make the plan work.<br><br>Well finally I did reload, put the coins in the fountain and immediately mentioned it to the merchant and everyone lived happily ever after. But I thought I'd mention it, if you don't talk to thwe merchant about the coins right away you're pretty much screwed. That may be intentional in the coding and not a bug at all.<br><br>Lastly, I encounted a bug once when walking out of the pond with the ugly duckling. Graham walked out of the water and did not move afterwards. I could not gett him to walk anywhere. Fortunately I clicked on the duck with the hand icon and he walked back into the water, after the events played out from that action I was again able to move around.<br><br>My hats off to Tierra for at the very least the effort involved in this game and at the most doing such a fantastic job at recreating a game that knocks the socks off the original. <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=>TheHipCat</A>  <IMG HEIGHT=10 WIDTH=10 SRC="" BORDER=0> at: 12/6/02 8:41:08 am<br></i>

Try going into the game folder and running KQ2VGA.EXE ijstead of running the game from the Launcher menu. It may be that the menu is causing the crash.<br><br>Yeah, the merchant in town thing isn't a bug, as the coins will re-appear until you get away with the pumpkin baby in your possession.<br><br>The duck thing sounds like a similar bug that others have mentioned. I'll have to check it out. Thanks! <p></p><i></i>
