Releasing Ace

Post by JinxedAlive » October 10th, 2014, 5:48 am

Greetings.

I recently found and hired Ace.
Game reacted by "Read paragraph 35", but upon clicking it pretty much nothing happened.
I suspect that I am doing something wrong, since I am hiring NPC's through forcing the encounter - there is a way to hire them without encounter which will result in "Read paragraph" appear in status bar?

Is Ace now in your party? If so then the paragraph not showing is a display bug and you can go on. If you want to read the paragraph it should be available in the extra content folder.

Yes, he is in party and I did check the meaning of paragraph in PDF file.
Yet still, is it possible to recruit NPC without initiating encounter?

It is not. The only way to recruit NPCs is via the "Hire" action in the combat menu.

So it is a minor bug, I take it?

No, I think it's an engine limitation. There's no Hire command available outside of combat.

I was referring to "Read paragraph" displaying in encounter status screen, but not appearing in travel status screen.
This, in addition to pretty much nothing happening when you are clicking on paragraph in encounter screen, forces the player to alt-tab and check the PDF paragraphs.

Oh, that. Yes, that's a bug. I had thought they fixed all of those with the second patch, but I guess not. On the plus side, there should only be one or two of those in the game.
