How come the game doesn't know I beat Snotmaw?

I've gotten to this point: Arokh opened the third gate and went through. Then there was a little trip to dispose of Snotmaw. Rynn and Arokh returned to the palace. Talk to General Dehrimon to complete this task. All he does is talk about the desert. The task remains uncompleted, but Rynn has the tro...

Never mind, I figured it out.

Jump from halfway down the steps and then jump again.

How do I get across to the rising ledge?

I'm in the catacombs, near the area with the four (now empty) caskets and the gap, across which the ledge rises.

Everytime I've tried jumping to grab the ledge, Rynn misses.

Is there a trick to getting safely across?

How do I convert 3d models from REO/REC to 3DS

I've been playing around with the idea of creating a fanart pic based on the 3dmodels from Drakan. However, I've been unable to get the models to convert to a format I can use. I saved the Arokh.reo as a COB object. But the modeling software I'm using rejected it, saying something about ASCII. Is th...

I never did understand the ending anyway.

At the end of the game, you see Rynn and Arokh diving deeper into the Rift.

I assumed they were going after Delon.

As to the grave, I'm assuming he's not in it.

Sometimes people will make a grave, just to honor the memory of the dead person.

Is the Inheritance Trilogy based on Drakan?

Before I acquired the Drakan games, I read the first two books of the Inheritance Trilogy (Eragon and Eldest). After I played the first game, I thought: "Didn't I read some of these things in those books?" So I checked the timeline in the back of Eragon. The idea was first conceived when Drakan: Ord...

I knew how to get the flash video file.

But they're not all that useful, given that they don't play in normal video player programs.

If I could actually get that scene to play, I could capture it myself.

But I can't.

A Theory about the dragon bonding ritual

I was reading (on this site) about how it is unusual that Arokh lived when Heron died, given that the lives of dragon and rider are linked. While reading a document on funny things in the world of Drakan, I thought of a reason. While the bond is relatively new (as it was for Heron (and Rynn in the O...

I found this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haghutCECaI Is this the start of the game? I had to download a savegame that bypasses it and wasn't able to watch it. If that is the video, do you think someone could arrange a downloadable version? I found the audition video. But I don't think it's r...

Since I was having MAJOR issues trying to get Drakan to work under XP (and I never totally succeeded), I sort of had a rest from it. I'm still interested, it's just I not convinced Drakan will ever work as it's intended under XP. And my Win98 computer isn't here, so I'm kinda stuck. I'll have to get...

I can't access the site.

Don't know why.

Reinstall the 445 patch.

Savegame Angst

I was trying to edit a level from Drakan which caused the camera software to go haywire. I uninstalled and then reinstalled Drakan. Of course, I did the smart thing and backed up my savegames. But now they don't work!!!! I even tried erasing the directory and loading just the "bug bypass" savegames....
