I am gaming today, and I just discovered something new. Varla stones can recharge MORE than one item at a time. blink.gif I literally did not know this. Maybe it's because a lot of my console characters would simply sell these stones instead of using them to recharge stuff. But yeah, I always assumed you only got one stone per item. but my character just recharged up two.

So that must mean she can just pick up all of her weapons at one time and recharge them all. Which is mighty convenient.

Yes, you can, as long as you have the strength to carry them. So she may have to drop all her armour to do that. It's the sort of manoeuvre you only do at home.

Invisible, headless dead sheep. Okay.

See I'm at the point now where nothing surprises me anymore. laugh.gif There is some bizarre stuff that goes on behind the scenes.

Yes, I used to put all the stuff I collected in my adventuring into the cabinets in the Skingrad house bedroom; then every now and then when I'd added a bunch of new stuff I'd stand in front of it and "Remove All." I'd use the Varla stone and put them all back in. That way whenever I pulled something out to use it, it was fully charged.

Awesome, mALX. Have to remember that, for convenience.

New thing for today: the Arena outfit (the one we are supposed to wear for vanilla Arena fights) includes wristbands with spikes sticking out of them! I was gaming maybe a week ago and accidentally put my character in first person, so that all I could see were her forearms. Lo, look at those spikes.

Do I have a pic? Dang, I do not.

I have used the code fw 38eed 1 many, many times over the years in Bruma. Whenever going through the town gates the weather always resets which is why I now know that code by heart.


Well, tonight while gaming I found out that I could just use the up arrow and get the last code I entered to appear again, meaning I actually don't have to type the whole thing in manually all the time.


I think this gif is appropriate here

glargg taught me this, years ago in the old forums. Yes, if you press the ^ or v directional buttons, we can scroll through all the console codes we've used before during our current session, and then press ENTER or Return to make that code happen. The console is some sort of ancient computer program from the '70s or something. I noticed a few weeks ago when using the Command Prompt program on my gaming computer that is has a similar system. Just press the up or down directional buttons, to scroll through any previous codes.

In my game, I'm occasionally also typing fw 38eee to make weather "normal" again. I've got a bug which causes weather sounds to start making a "loop", so that these sounds aren't random anymore. Hard to explain, but it gets annoying quick! So I'll type fw 38eee or fw 38ef2 (for rain, I think), and then I might need to use directional buttons to call these codes up again.

Some other popular codes I call up frequently: tcai, to keep RG3's followers, or just random NPCs, from fighting to the death for stupid friendly-fire mistakes. *facepalm* ... tfc and tm, in that order, mostly to get that perfect screenshot. Sometimes I will also use tai if I want to get some NPC or creature to hold a pose (again for screenshots).

I think in a way, this is why I enjoy going back to Xbox sometimes. No console, no mods, but also there's no constant micro-managing of console codes and niggling mod glitches. I'm literally just playing the game again. biggrin.gif

Eleven and a half year and I just heard a line from a Forester that I have never heard before! ohmy.gif


Lothran had his weapon raised and upon engaging in conversation, the Forester said; "Do you have a death wish, citizen? Lower your weapon, NOW!"


I swear, first time I heard it!

Wow, no way! Probably you'd have to have Lothran's disposition lowered enough before this quip shows up. Lothran.... such a bad boy. ph34r.gif

If I have heard it before, and that's a big IF, then it must have been once several years ago when I didn't have all dialogue registered in my bwain yet tongue.gif

Lol. I learned that in Fallout 3 = adding in stuff through the Dev's console = cheating, lol.

It's been awhile but I don't think it is a disposition thing. If I recall, if you walk up to a guard with a weapon drawn and talk to him, that is the likely response.

True. Some NPCs also address you differently if you talk to them with weapons drawn and their disposition is automatically lowered.

That's always the case and Lothran has done this many times to further boost someone's disposition. Still, never gotten that greeting before despite having done this to many guards.


Reason #73 why I still play this game biggrin.gif

When playing the disposition game with that Orc in the Skingrad Castle to get your Skingrad House = if it tops out and is below 70 (the place you need it to be to get the house) = you can draw your weapon out and try again. His disposition will drop; so you can play the game again, and if you win it may get up to 70.

(I usually save before starting just in case; and stack the deck by wearing a bunch of personality enchanted clothes to meet him, lol).

Better yet, do the game with the weapon drawn, and then sheath it after to get the 10 points back. You only have to get him up to 60 that way.

On the other hand, the first spell I make is always "Bamboozle" - 100 points of charm for one or two seconds. You can pass any disposition checks once you have that available, as the clock stops when you enter dialog.

Ooh, I like the sound of that spell!
