    - Mairo gives you the second meal.
    - your party don't teleports to Olvar's tavern after falling of any your original characters.
    - Telus talks to you after training.
    - Proper removing of equipped Novacula.


    Dunno about older versions (should check 1.35 later), but 1.8 have a bug what prevents gaining second meal. They renamed label/answer good enough to I can deliver the food, but forgot change second goto to this label.
    So, open file people.txt and find string
    change it to
    Now you can get new meal every 40 game hours. But Mairo is now slightly botched, so find strings

    Change them to
    Now Mairo works fine.

    After four years I finally correctly (probably :M) fixed it.

    Version 1.2 don't have "another meal" option, but have additional node (I can deliver the food) what checks party reputation (so, probably, you can't get quest too early) and calls good enough node.
    Version 1.35 is similar.
    Version 1.5 have "another meal" option, but still had reputation check.
    Probably, script was broken in the 1.7.

    Everyone knows about teleporting your party to Kellen after death of any your first three characters. CP wrote what corrected it, but bug still stands, probably there is another version of 1.8 somewhere.

    They just forgot to restore old DIEOVERRIDE in the event 140 to make it one-time event.

    (setchar ^PARTY1^ ^DIEOVERRIDE^ 0)
    (setchar ^PARTY2^ ^DIEOVERRIDE^ 0)
    (setchar ^PARTY3^ ^DIEOVERRIDE^ 0)

    Another patch
    Don't forget to delete file events.bin!

    Man I love this game so much, everything about it is just so much fun. Would definitely love to see another Prelude iteration...

    Bingos will steal your babies

    Edit: Is it just me, or is everyone else unable to alt-tab while playing PtD? Any way to fix this? Or perhaps play it in window mode?

    Another bugs:
    - Telus the gem trader indeed is broken if you learned barter from him.
    - Script don't like when someone holds Novacula in the left hand. You'll get two Novaculas (Novaculae? :M), blessed and unblessed and lose weapon in the right hand.
    Should be fixed pretty easily.
    Anyone remembers another script bugs?

    Novacula wielded in left hand now properly removed.
    Just a six copies of this code:
    (if ^PARTY1^
    (if (equipped ^PARTY1^ ^Novacula^)
    ((cond (comp (getchar ^PARTY1^ ^RIGHTHAND^) 1110)
    (setchar ^PARTY1^ ^LEFTHAND^ 0)
    (setchar ^PARTY1^ ^RIGHTHAND^ 0)
    (setchar ^PARTY1^ ^LEFTHAND^ 0)
    )
    (equip ^PARTY1^))
    ()
    )
    )

    Don't forget to delete old events.bin !

    Umm... it's under the Prelude to Darkness subforum? o_O

    OT: Since these are script fixes can I apply these to 1.7 installation?

    Should I allow Tonis (literacy teacher in the Seminary) to continue training you after peaceful resolution of the first Temple quest?

    Otherwise, my work is done, I fixed all bugs what I remember.
    Perhaps, this thread should be stickied.

    Calling Crooked Bee. This is an old codex favourite suddenly getting a patch. Frontpage worthy?

    Sought this game out after reading stuff from the Age of Decadence devs. This would be the most up-to-date version, right? Thanks a lot for your work Fowyr, looking forward to trying this out.

    Should I use 1.7 or 1.8? I heard there might be issues with 1.8. Thanks in advance.

    I heard 1.7 is more stable.
