I actually found the way out of the first dungeon in Daggerfall!

Unfortunately it was with a Dunmer Sorcerer(non-custom) named test, but at least I now have a vague idea of where to go.

I think I've worked out what determines the number of starting spells, have to run a test.

First problem; the game froze when I was about to talk to someone. No biggie though, I ctrl-alt-delete my way out and restarted and it all worked on the next attempt.

But by god! Is that a human being or did my graphics card just crash?? blink.gif

IIRC Arena was made to run in 320x200 or some crazy low resolution so you could actually have colours. That does tend to make for inadequate detail. DosBox gives you some interpolation options that can make it smoother, but sometimes that just makes it look weird. You need to experiment with the scaling modes until you find one you like.

@ghastley - I think Iīm just gonna go along with how it is at this point. If I want changes later Iīll figure out how itīs done then, i.e pester you about it hehe.gif

I was surprised that I actually missed the dungeon when I got out into the town. It was really creepy and the music did its job very well.

Is there any way to make it stop flooding the screen with messages like "You See A Rat" every time I am fighting a rat?

My guess is that you are left clicking. Don't left click on it.

OR maybe this is connected to your key rebinding?

That could be, I bound the attack to the left key. I'll put it back to the right key and see what happens.

Yep, that was it alright. It seems that some things are hard coded to certain keys, and that information thing must be stuck to the left mouse button, no matter what else you map it to.

So far I gotta say Arenaīs music is great and I have somewhat adapted to the gameplay. I plan to stick to the town and lvl up quite a bit before heading out into dungeons. It was quite a shock for me when I found out that monsters roam the town at night but it provides a great opportunity to get experience whilst being close to safety if things get out of hands smile.gif

I donīt quite get the armor rating in this game though. When I highlight the armor it reads a negative armor rating instead of plus. Might have to read up on that I guess.

Battered my way through the first dungeon in Daggerfall, slaying rats, bats, imps archers, thieves, and a skeleton warrior. Oh, and two grizzly bears, I've no idea what the hell they were doing in there.

Got out, made my way to the city Daggerfall, and immediately wished I was back in the dungeon. It was snowing, and turning in the snow is a downright nauseating experience. Once I entered the city (my second arrival there, the first got me killed) I immediately got lost among far too many buildings that looked alike. How does anyone find anything in this game?

Use the map. Not the big Province wide one, but the local map. The interesting buildings will be filled in with different colors, depending on what they are. They also have signs outside, while the ordinary buildings are bare.

Slightly different armour rating system in Arena. Apparently a piece with an AR of -6 protects more than another piece with an AR of -3 since the number represents a reduction in damage taken rather than protection given.

Huh mellow.gif

Well, now I have to figure out how to travel to other provinces tongue.gif

Edit: Does anyone know of problems with overwriting the same save slot over and over in Arena? The wiki doesnīt say, but as there are limited slots and you canīt delete saves in-game thatīs what I do.
