    This just happened to me also, but I got two choices, just the number 1 and the number 2. I chose number 1 and received the same item. I had just entered the area from the world map heading to the spot by the inn. Sounds like an on_enter type script firing maybe?

    Thanks all, I've got the Smyth thing figured out. Apparently the Brother Smyth you're talking to is a doppleganger!

    Ok not really, but it's an interesting combination of 2 bugs, where (1) some items that are not Lareth's are for some reason flagged as such and (2) Brother Smyth gets replaced with a masterwork-selling version who lacks the newly added scripting for when you sell him some of Lareth's stuff.

    Attached a fix (also includes the Gremag fix), unzip this to your main ToEE folder and override the files.

    When I get a change, I try it and I will see how good it is from my Lawful Good Start save. Yes I saved it before I left where you can get some items. By-the-way, I also noticed there that you have to watch out when starting. Some people in this link say they get all the items and don't use them. I don't get that. I get instead when I leave, my Paladin doesn't have a sword. I have saved it with a sword though. It is just sometimes, the sword disappears.

    And I thought my PTSD hallucinations were bad... going into combat without a weapon...

    Playing NC

    1. I charmed a kobold sergant at the start of Welkwood Bog

    2. He's amazing and he never got hit once (not a bug, he dodged all my party's blows before that and knocked out both my fighter and cleric)

    3. We got to Mathel

    4. Mathel and his crew wasn't there, we loot the chest

    5. We went outside to kill more kobold

    6. He finally dies, I go visit Mathel again

    7. He's still hasn't been spawned

    Did you check both rooms, left and right? His group randomly appears in one or the other.

    It's random? I thought it was a day/night thing...

    Well it turns out he is in the other room

    I did wait to encounter them by morning via resting though. It turns out by that time everyone but Mathel moves into anther room by morning. However as they are walking towards the other room. They did not notice me at all. Which makes them up for easy picking, and easy xp.

    Don't know if this is intentional though.

    I have restarted and noticed something. I have people with a dexterity of 18. I have 3 people who have acquired chain shirts (ac+4, dex +4). One of my people has an 18 ac while the others have 20. The others have large shields while the one with the lower AC has a darkwood buckler. I clicked on AC and it said that the ac was reduced due to item (Barbarian helm) so I removed that and was told it was reduced again due to item (leather gloves). I have also noticed that if my dexterity is at the max (in this case +4), it will say it is reduced due to item.

    I also had Mathel go close to a door and I couldn't swing at him. I got the sword cursor and the red circle with a line through it. So I just turned undead and he went away. Also, I have only met Mathel in the left room since doing 8.1.0.

    If you need more information about these two problems, I will try to explain them. The AC is the most confusing of the two.

    I have attached pictures of the AC problems mentioned in the first paragraph.

    I can't rest at the Welcome Wench and it is not due to the comely wenches there! The icon for resting ( the green tent) does not appear as a choice but remains in the clock mode and only allows me to pass time. I've tried quitting the game, reloading saves, and changing maps to no avail. I can rest in the moathouse tower but that doubles the time needed to heal.:thumbsdow:sadblinky

    Any thoughts on a fix?

    This may sound crazy but did you do the Furnok gambling quest to get a free room or pay for a room? I have gotten the know when to hold em quest completed and I can rest upstairs or downstairs in the Welcome Wench.

    Hi folks!!!

    Its my first time here to post, but i visit this forum maybe 4 years...i'd like congrats the efforts to make this game more enjoyable!

    Well, my bug report was a crash when i kill kobort on ambush scene. The game was close cuz it stopped working. When i restart the game and load my save, I get the message that my game: due to an unknown error, seems to have been corrupted and can not be loaded properly.

    there anything I can do to not lose the saved game?

    *My game's version is the current mod pack 8.1.0

    Unfortunately, save game corruption is still a prevalent issue with the modpack, although it is considerably less apparent now than it was is the past. I regret to say that there is no easy way to "save" your corrupted save. :(

    We recommend that you maintain a bank of save games and replace the oldest one each time you save so you will usually have a save that isn't too far behind where you were currently at in the game.

    Myself, I keep 10 saves and always save manually and overwrite the oldest save each time.
