At ShiverBane. Is it because I didn't kill the twin monsters ?

If its where I think you are you need to defeat Maulgak (King of the halfmen) in his arena before you can access the gate. If you have done the part where you fall into a trap and escaped the prison you just need to find the way out and you will be confronted by him. Ensure you have collected your weapons first from the store room.

No. I killed him and got to the gate where I met Jassad. But I haven't killed the twin assassins that Malguk sent after me. When I got back in trying to get to the lever and the hut. I actually saw the hut but couldn't reach it. I tried to trace back to the arena but couldn't either.

Something weird happened to Lasta ( the sword ), I didn't have to use the square to draw it.

Anyway, I used an earlier save and easily completed the period. So it is probably a bug. As you said you have played over 100 times, maybe you should try this one out : trying not to get into the cave with an elevator ( where you will meet the twin assassins ) but get into the cave with the fall trap to see what happen ? :)

It's true. If you do things in an odd order, you can miss out on that, and even not be able to get out into Maulgak's arena to fight him. Glad you fixed it and figured it out.

No need to leave - don't worry nobody will take offense if you say Drakan has bugs - we know it has plenty of them especially in the PC version. This is why Shelim made an unofficial patch to fix most of the bugs. The PS2 version cannot be patched for obvious reasons; all we can do is try and help people avoid them.

Not ANY bug, in general. But the bug I mentioned in this thread and moderators do not want to admit it or test it.

I personally wasn't aware of that particular bug but I know Drakan can screw up if certain things are not done right - I put up a walkthrough which tells players the 'right' way to to it to (hopefully) avoid game breaking bugs. All of us have full time jobs and I don't have much time to test everything as I run my own business and often work long hours. I run this site in my spare time and often leave things to other members and contributors to do.

Outlaw Wyvern is your Drakan: TAG expert but I doubt he knows of all the bugs.

But we are a friendly community - don't worry about offending us if Drakan isn't working as it should.

If you initiate the fall trap, you go to prison. That's AFTER you meet the two Desert Lords.
I'm having trouble understanding:
A) why you're upset
B) What you're actually talking about.

I promise I know the game well and hope to be helpful, but.... try to be clear in what you are asking, and you will get the best I have to give 8^)

WAIT! I think I know what you are asking!
You need to try the two paths leading away from the Eye Gate. One leads sort of nowhere... overlooking below in the courtyard, while the other leads to a wooden structure with a lever to open the gate and let Arokh in. THIS has glitched/stuck on me before, and I either reloaded a different save or maybe it blew that game, I don't remember.
Is that what you mean? The gate to let Arokh in to activate the Eye Gate?

I re-read the thread in light of what I just realized, and I see what you meant, AND that you got past it.
Glad that's settled.

It wasn't just me then that thought that :)
