The Help Masterthread
« on: August 29, 2011, 07:31:10 pm »
In an effort to reduce the number of threads whose title is meaningless and whose OP consists of only a question, I?m creating this little thing. An experiment of sorts.
What do you say? Guidelines, of course!
- Keep the conversation in this thread to a minimum. A single comment about a question is fine, but when it starts to become a series of quote pyramids or two people carrying a conversation by themselves, please take it to the PM's.
- Do not make threads simply to ask a question. There?s no reason to, now that this thing is in place. That?s kinda the purpose. ;)

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.

It's completely possible.
You will need to exchange the obsolete Boss Points for Honor Points via the -change command, though.

Just load a chapter like normal. You'll need to complete the previous chapters first, though. Saves cannot be transferred, only Give Up.

To clarify what Chimto said.

Game Saves are only loadable in the version of the game they were saved, think of it like a single player skirmish on a custom map loading would load where you were on that map. If a new version of the map was made you would need to start a new game to play the new version as loading the old version would theoretically load everything the way it was when it was saved.

However, when you finish each chapter a Campaign save or save point is made. This is read whenever ANY version of TCO is started. So if you ever finished chapter 6 you have a special save that version 1.6 will load your data from when you start chapter 7.

If you want to start the campaign again with bonus resources use the give up option from the control panel box and it will make a give up save or save point. Then when you start a new game using the load from give up option it will load that save point and let you start with the resources you had.

I hope that explained it well :)

errr... the three puzzles are the rings of color puzzle, the maze puzzle, and the annoying-to-kill-both golems puzzle.

First puzzle contains golems and circles, keep solving it until it says the way is clear then do it for once more for the orb piece. Second puzzle is the teleport maze go pick up the fragment before leaving. Third puzzle involves killing 2 giant golems at once.

The other 3 pieces come from killing the epic boss himself.

Hope that helps.

If you can't understand what AdmOrian said, then please explain to us your current situation. Because I can't seem to find a way to explain it more clearly than AdmOrian did.
