I tried to use the 3D Preview option a few times. And this is how it works for me: Small objects only (weapons, effects, etc). As soon as I ask it to show me a level, the 3D window crashes and dumps me back to the editor. <b>BLASTED WINDOWS XP!!!!!!</b> [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!...

I've seen your website, but am unclear as how to access the Gold Pack download.

If I'm interpreting what you're saying correctly, you make the cave as an "inside" room and then connect it to an "outside" room.

I've been avoiding the Surreal forums and Planet Drakan. First, the Surreal forums info is often out of date and the links are broken. Second, whenever I tried to download something from Planet Drakan, I get this message about having to pay for some kind of subscription. I'm a bit annoyed about this...

Eragon's fighting style varies throughout the game, with the addition of Za'roc and special magic powers. At first, he has an ordinary sword and a bow. This sword is later replaced by Za'roc, which is more powerful. Later on, he uses his magic to push or pull objects and enemies. Then he learns to s...

How does the level editor work?

I've been studying this on and off for a while now. And the only thing I've learned how to do is draw rooms. Since I'm not certain of the Drakan terms, I'll use the words I learned in Tomb Raider level editing. The things I think are necessary to create a level are: Rynn start point. Arokh start poi...

The castle picture leaped out at me.

In the game, most of it is during daytime. With the exception of the Andrellian Isles, which is under a giant thunderstorm.

I don't recall a single scene at night.

De Profundis, which armor is that?

I've only used two armors, Magic Ornate and Armor Of The Order.

The rest of the time, Rynn is running around in her normal clothes.

Well, a similar thing happened. I got near the corner and something went boom. One of the energy barriers shut down. With much lever pulling and barrier destroying, I moved on. Thanks for the help. Now I'm stuck fighting the Flesh Mage. I thought he'd be faster then that. Should I offer him a zimmer...

I played Eragon (the game of the movie) a few times before the novelty wore off. But it's inferior to Drakan. Basically, the problems are mainly with Saphira's integration into the game engine. 1: when Eragon is flying with her, she's stuck to some kind of track. Unlike Arokh, you can't choose where...

I just tried again and got it first try!

Time Slow, get the vortex captain, then pick off the shadow guys one by one.

Actually, I meant Stratos, their cloud fortress.

How do I beat 3/4 to 1 odds?

I'm somewhere in the Flesh Mage's palace. I've gone down two elevators and defeated three shadow guys and two vortex captains. Now up to a point where there's a room ahead. As soon as Rynn goes in, the vortex captain orders the room to be sealed and two shadow guys attack. Individually, (with the ad...

I just continued on playing after this point. I tried to return later, but the way was barred by a gate. So I gave up on it. I'm now in the Desert Lord stronghold, having defeated four of them after arriving (no wonder they're afraid of dragons, it wasn't much of a contest). I wonder how well my cha...
