It's good to stop people from exiting boss fights, elite, and epic fights but the mini-bosses should never lock.

Okay fine. I'll make it from now on you're able to escape from most of the mini-bosses.

Do that then, it is far to slow, even for a slow reader like myself. I found the only way to keep myself from dying of boredom between the text is to act out the scene myself and speak as if I was performing a play :D

Tell few cinematics that are too slow.

I'd be happy to go through and fix spelling and grammatical errors - well the ones I find anyway (there are so many scattered throughout the dialogue and even in item descriptions). Except I wouldn't know how to get involved since I've never done map-making before.

I'm not sure where we should start. Are you good with texts like ability and item description or what about cinematic texts? Dialogues?

Quote from: Skasian
I'd prefer not to offend your sense of humour in the game is that is what you like. After all different people have different humour, what I find childish, the next player could find hilarious so I don't think I have the right to criticize what you made.

Well we all have a little different sense of humor of course. I try to put all kind of humor so that at least once you would have a little laugh when playing the campaign.

Chapter 6, after a corridor of 300 armor golems you enter a series of rooms with 4 teleporters. I've played around ages in there and there seems to be no exit?
Each circle either:
1. Spawn some Dream Eaters.
2. Returns you back to the 1st level.
3. Moves you to the next level.
4. Does nothing.
You have to memorise the circles that moves you to the next level.
I think that's for the Nightmare mini-game and he is referring to that other teleport puzzle(bugged?) in which your prize is the item Opportunist.

Well if we think deeper the puzzles are very same: you'll have to memorise the way from beginning to the end.

Tell few cinematics that are too slow.
All of them, actually.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

As Chimto said... ALL OF THEM! Speed them all up by about 1/3x.

Also the puzzle that I was complaining getting stuck about. It would appear either you've programmed something run or I encountered a bug. I managed to finish that puzzle only entering 6 out of the 12 rooms. I'm sure that is not intended?

I also wrote down the rooms and circles and there was no visible pattern to me :S Perhaps you should try it and see if it works.

You mean the teleportation puzzle with those monster that has ranged attack and can stun?

Yes that one, and I had a puzzle 'bug?' once where they spawned non-stop. Ended up permanently stunning both my heros so they couldn't move/heal/cast anything so I gamed over.

Either way this puzzle needs tweaking.

I agree the puzzle needs some improvements.... Also it takes too much space. I could use that place for Death Bringer battles.

NECROBUMPAGE

anyways, whatever Aero has done since this thread started, the game is AMAZING in terms of difficulty at the moment.

When reloading a give-up the gold helps buy enough items to make the first bosses much easier on easy difficulty, but still challenging on extreme.

Great job Aero!

And please can I have an unprotected copy of the map so I can find the damn dig spots! :D
