    Wait a few game days then go back and see Gremag. He will then ask you to kill someone else in Hommett (a real pushover at that) and then after a few more days he will ask you to kill your third victim- and you'd better bring your big boy pants for this one cause your target WON'T be going down gently! ;)

    I waited lots of game days, but the conversation options won't change. :(
    Seems something in my game is broken then...

    That is not an option for me. :( My disk was broken by one of my kids long ago ad I just cannot make myself pay for it twice.

    Are you aware that TOEE is only $5.99 USD at GoG.com?

    I've paid that much for a coffee, albeit a very good coffee. ;)

    And if that is too much for you, it has been and will be again from -50% to -70%. So you can get it for 2 dollars.

    Does no one have an idea what could be wrong with my game? I would love to go on with it, but fear that I have to start anew to fix this.

    Is there anyone who also has the "problem" with the day counter?

    I have also never managed to get the Gremag: Armario murder quest to progress. Not sure what one has to do, but I couldn't get it to do anything in 7.8 nor in 8.0.

    On another topic; I love the improved AI on some of the fights - in particular the harpy fight is now awesome. I'd love to see more of these amendments in - Sitra, keep up the good work!

    Thanks. (there's also a nice surprise for 8.1 ;) )

    PS the Gremag thing could use a little loving too I guess... IIRC you basically have to metagame it and kill all three victims in one stroke.

    Speaking about unanswered questions, mine got lost somewhere, so let's try again - can I use a save from 7.9 made at the end of Hommlet? Did anything change between 7.9->8.0 at this stage? I can't bear doing all those quests again...

    re. Gremag
    Passage of time is irrelevant.
    However, note that there are many things that can prevent the continuation of the assassionation plot, because they take precedence in the scripting. e.g. exposing the courier, exposing the laborer spy, hiring Raimol. I'm guessing that's what happened. Like I said it could use some lovin'.

    The assassination targets are Armario, Kenter Nevets and Terjon.

    re. 7.9-> 8.0
    I don't think anyone is going to endorse that. Do so at your own risk.
    You don't have to do the Hommlet quests - that's the purpose of Welkwood Bog, to provide an alternative for level 1 adventuring.

    What OS are you running Abascar?

    In the TOEE main directory you will see a log file, can you post it's contents?

    Windows 7 (Game and Front End set to Administrator in WIN XP SP3 Compatibility). Also, I had to disable the starting movies in order for TOEE to run w/o crashing. I've been to Welkwood / The Delko Grove / Nulb / Moathouse / Imeryds Run. I get the feeling that it doesn't like to transition from the game to cut scenes which causes the crash (just a gut feeling).

    I don't see a log file in the TOEE main directory? Is it a text file?

    The only text files I see in the TOEE main directory is:

    TFE-X
    Change Log
    Co8 NC
    Devenv
    mt19937ar
    readme
    Temple of Elemental Evil


    Also, is there a console command that could set areas as having already been visited (in order to bypass the slides?).
