How do the cheat codes work?

I'm now on my second playthrough of this game. And I realised my points won't get high enough <i>before</i> I go to Stratos, at which point collecting them is useless, because you can't buy anything once you attain them. So I tried to use the spell level cheat to upgrade them. But I can't quite get ...

Sneaky Arokh

This is something that happened which was totally unexpected:

Who knew Arokh could be so stealthy?

Up until recently, I was focussing on building up skills equally. When I realized I was close to level 4 magic, I decided that was my next goal. After that, I'll try to equalize them all again. The last time I played this, I ended up carting around weapons I couldn't use, because my skills never got...

The one thing I didn't understand is why there's a magic spell missing. Each of Arokh's elemental powers has a similar spell for Rynn. But his sonic power has no matching spell. I've just finished Andrellian Isles. But I ended with only 70% experience, 30% short of the level up I was hoping for. Loo...

Thanks for the tips. I've only got low level fire blasts at the moment. Hopefully, before I see Gothraul, I will have more magic attacks. I'm currently at level 3 magic. If my trip to the Andrellian Isles gives me another skill point, I can upgrade to level 4 magic, which will allow me to acquire Re...

I generally have Arokh go around "cleaning up" all my enemies so it's easier for me to explore the place without worrying about being attacked every five seconds. So I wouldn't have noticed that about the skeleton armies. Gothraul is an enemy I truly hate. I used 2 invulnerability potions in conjunc...

I'd forgotten about those guys. Object recycling at it's finest. I thought the Inquisitor was Khossa because Jade mentions that Dehrimon defeated him once, but he can only really be defeated by killing his real body. My theory about the Flesh Mage is that he was a talented and powerful human sorcere...

Khossa Vole (spoilers)

I'm replaying TAG for the second time. And I just realized something. The "Inquisitor" Rynn defeats in the passage behind the waterfall is Khossa Vole. What was he doing asking questions about people from the Dark Wars? The answer always given is that the people he's asking about are long dead, but ...

Arachnophobics Beware!

I made this short video which incorporates gameplay footage from Ancients' Gates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFjzsilC3JA I didn't intend for this to happen, it was unintentional. But once I had it..... What happened was I expected something to sneak behind Rynn. If she had been one step forward,...

I could have sworn I spoke to him. But maybe I missed him the second time (I got lost and loaded a save so I would know where I was). The first time round, I went to the Inquistor's lair without anything but Rynn's dagger! That was hard enough. Then I went to the Swamps. I missed all the special wea...

Where is stupid Nichols the Blowhard?

I'm replaying Drakan TAG, trying to get all the elemental swords of the Order. However, I've run into a major problem. Nichols is gone! He wasn't in the cell and he's not below the broken bridge being attacked by Trog mages. Have I just wasted all this time getting here? Do I have to start the game ...

I tried that.

All it did was make the brush disappear.

I've also tried to "place" objects in the level.

I get the properties window, but nothing else.

However, I don't think any of this will matter unless the 3D Preview window works.

How compatible are Drakan 1 and 2 levels?

Out of curiosity, I started snooping around on the Ancients' Gates disc. I found the design structure to be similar to Order Of The Flame. So I wondered if it was possible to "borrow" elements from this game. It seemed to import the databases, except for a lot of messages about finding certain datab...

I'm using an nVidia GeForce 6600 LE. I'm really hoping to get this working, since the last 3D game editor I was using has a really weird ongoing fatal flaw that I've been unable to rectify. It forced me to give up working with it. And you know what? I think it was caused by WindowsXP! [:(!] [:(!] [:...

Well, it stopped the 3d viewer crashing.

Unfortunately, it didn't appear to do much more then that.

All I see is a paintbrush and a grey screen.

[V] Maybe these programs were never mean to function under WindowsXP........
