The Bard's Tale Trilogy - Bugs or Not Bugs?

For all discussion on all the previous Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980s games (Bard's Tale, II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous Bard's Tale (2004) spin off.

Well the arm band would probably get the —banned— in Germany.

- An awful lot of "magic chains" (aka "stuck") and "smoke in your eyes" squares made it into different maps, such as Kinestia and Tarmitia, which I don't remember being there.
I believe they just copied the data over. Could be memory; we're all getting old.
- In Tenebrosia, the wall you're supposed to cast PHDO or WAWA on is not a real wall anymore, but an illusionary wall, so you don't need the spells to reach Sceadu.
Feh. That shouldn't be there. Believe I mentioned it before, and I think it was an issue of getting invisible walls to work right. Might have fallen through the cracks.
- The loot tables of Malefia are weird, I'm getting mostly low level drops such as regular chain mails, long swords, etc. (Thus, I gave up trying to get that coveted Staff of the Gods.)
Dude, Chain Mail is totes OP.
Alwa nasci korliri das.

Shouldn't earth and stone creatures be immune to this class of attack? Just saying. Not sure how the originals did it

Fire creatures - immune from breath and burn attacks,
ice creatures etc. etc.
In BT3, some monsters were resistant (1/2 or 1/4 dmg) or weak (1.5--2X dmg) to certain attacks. I've noticed this hasn't been implemented in the Krome version.

Just registered to post here that my Bard's Tale 1 crashed for the first time last night in level 2 of the sewers after an hour of play! aargh. I had more than 20 hours of playing the game, so I found this first crash unusual. The screen froze but sound continued and so did the menus. I tried to feel my way into a save mode without success, and then the game stopped responding. It did not autosave and I lost an hour of game play.

Not sure if there is another way of reporting crashes.

The devs check the Steam forum more than here, I think. People tend to be pretty active in reporting bugs over there. (Not saying it won't be seen here, but you have a higher probability that it will be seen in a timely manner on Steam.)

Also, my guess is that the devs are going to want to know the standard stuff like system specs and whether you have a save file that they can inspect.
