Well hey man, you know best.. whatever is easiest for you! :) And yeah, I've noticed the barbarian does insanely more damage with even his basic weapon combos than the amazon, even when you take into account skeletons, he still does more damage to them than the amazon, I think. It's a shame because the amazon with the new combos is beautiful to play... I love her dodging style, I love how she can run with a weapon, she just needs a bit of a power boost to be competitive, I think. She is definitely the expert class at the moment, fragile, doing little damage, but amazingly agile and fun to play. If you take away the shield (which I strongly suggest, they feel really wrong on her, I think) please boost her combos a little or something, she needs the help :))

Thanks Sabre. )

Hm...
The Amazon is the most flexible, she can move fast, have good combos, and she is the best in far combat with the bows... Her attacks are the weakers, but her power is like as the knight. They are good for play in normal difficulties...
In hardest difficulties I use the bows and arrows with the amazon, aiming to the head or to back or to the arms. The barbarian is my favorite, he is brutal also in hardest difficulty.
But, in the avanced maps with high leves, facing dangerous groups of enemies; and in a hard difficulty: is better to use the special items, for example, the Power potion, bracelet or crown. The Amazon will become more strong with her hard attacks; but her defense will still the weaker of the four heros.

In the next version 1.5.2... Fighting to an renegade Amazon, she is very dangerous... For to defeat to an renegade-traitor hero, you will should to use some especial item... The renegade barbarian is too much brutal... :shock: With two strong hits and you are dead. :roll:

Haha, cool, I hope they will at least be beatable on easier difficulties, since it seems they'll mop the floor with you on the harder ones :) How's the new version coming along, when can we expect it? :)

Hello friends :)

Well, I am near to finish this version 1.5.2 ... and already I have several ideas to the V1.6 8)
Here is a list of corrections:

-Corrected errors of save-load option, in all maps.
- Corrected errors in the code of all characters, enemies and allies.
- Corrected errors in the special items.
The Magic amulet can summon to the four heros, as allies. Each one can wear all types of armors. Also the allies can use more types of weapons and be ambidextrous.
-Added the four renegades heros, as enemies, in some maps.
- Added to bestiary those renegade heros.
- Some things fixed in a few maps, due to its high difficulty...
The renegade heros are very hard!
- Some corrections in the characteristics of the heros.
The defense of the heros and their armors bonuses are some balanced. (I hope it)
- Fixed the shield parameters of defense and attack. Erased attack bonus of the shields.
Not allowed shields with two handed weapons.
(This correction have the aim of balance the defenses of the heros.)
- Corrected the code of the damages function.
Now the defense of the shields and the bonus for ranks, to defense and attack, can modifies well the damages.

Also:
- Adapted the Gladiator Mod, to the Hyperborean Mod. I call it "Hyperborean Gladiator mod". This mod use BoDLoader 05a...

I think that I will finish it soon... its remains a few little things. :)


Some ideas for the version 1.6:
- I want to adapt to the mod the character Masklin, the wizard.
- I want to adapt the TalkSystem mod... and make a lot of conversations. (TOO MUCH WORK TO DO...) :mrgreen:
Those dialogues will be for improve this great history... in the hyperborean difficulty, there will be more dialogues about the Dark Gods and the "Spiritual chain"...

Thank you very much, Sabre :)

Yes, I am testing now how works the defense and the bonuses; the game is more balanced and now is a challenge too for the barbarian. The knight have more defense now, he can resist near the enemies and hit them faster. The dwarf is brutal and he can resist strong hits and defeat harder enemies with a little of patience... is better to attack from the flanks and back. Stun them with the hammers and then finish them. The amazon have a little more of defense and life, but she is the weaker... she should use always the bow and arrows. To combat a hard enemy, she should use a sword and a shield. To combat a group, she should use a spear or cane. To combat an enemy weak, or fast, use amidextrous weapons. The barbarian is my favorite... he crush them all... hehehe :lol:

One more cool thing: :)
I get to add more weapons... a big club to the barbarian, as you wanted, Sabre :wink: I am trying to add more duplicated weapons... I want a vampiric spear and a vampiric big axe.

Best regards :)

Great news man! I mean other than this new problem, of course x) I will have to learn to use the bow and arrows for sure, always avoided that before, hehe. Anyway, for the console, if you mean the in-game one check out this link http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2702 - the main thing is to make sure you're running your game windowed and you have -console after your shortcut.

Oh, yes!
Many thanks Sabre!! :D

My Console finally works well!
It was a problem with my old videocard, D3D was not configurated well and the window mode was in conflict by a wrong settings or an old drivers... Well, it does not matter. :roll:

The errors seems to be the new weapons added; and another mistake in the enemies code... Let's try to fix these. :mrgreen:

...the console makes slow the game... I hope that is only in my old PC. :|

The amazon is the best with the bows... In the Extras menu, there is a option for use (shoot) fast the bows. You should use the mouse to aim, while keep pressing "attack". To aim and shoot to a far target, desactivate (use of bows "normal") the option in the extras menu.

Watch your energy bar, if the "realistic energy mode" is activated, to aim and shoot with bows, drains a lot of her energy. Look always for high places, safe places, and try to shoot to the head, or back, or arms... She can make critical damages with arrows, she have 90% of chances... she is very deadly with arrows. But be careful with her lower defense... the bows makes weaker to who use these; you will need an armor.

When the console print out many messages, the game will drop frames. You can try to narrow the message output box. :) :)
There is a very obvious example is when the game is running garbage collection.

Thank you friends! :D

Everything is fine again... all seems to works well. :D
No more errors found.

Only remains to put a few of renegade heros, in some maps. Those enemies will not have conversations yet. They only attack you if they see you.
In the next version 1.6 I will add a long talks to them .... they could tell you the other side of the history. And of course, they will fight after their words. :mrgreen:

That is totally amazing man! :D Can't wait to see if we can pull out our amulet heroes to see how they fair against their evil hero twins, ha! Btw, awesome about the bow, didn't know about that option, it will for sure make for a much more dynamic amazon..she's definitely my go-to character when 1.6 releases! :D

Oh, by the Gods!! :shock: :shock: :D
I get to add the weapons of the old "Weapons pack mod"!! :o
These are more than 900 new weapons! Hahaha :lol: :mrgreen:
Now I will really enjoy this... I have a great big staff for add. 8)

...Let's try a function to the enemies, to equip them with a few random weapons, for example... conditionaled by the level, defense and damage.
Well, this thing will be for the Version 1.6 ... I think that 100 or 150 new weapons will be cool. Is a lot of work in all maps, but... well, I like it :mrgreen:
