    After defeating the dwarves in the quarry cave, I was not able to exit. The falling rock trap would get set off every time I tried to exit, and I couldn't leave. Couldn't disable the trap, and couldn't find another exit. Eventually just teleported out. Wondering if I am missing something, or if that is the way it is supposed to be.

    Never mind. I searched around some more and found a thread that seems to indicate that it is a bit of a bug, but doesn't always happen. I don't think I fought any earth elementals in that fight, but I thoroughly searched the cave for another way out, so I am sure I didn't miss any dwarves, and my character had a very high reflex saving throw (30+), yet couldn't make it through the exit no matter how many times he tried. Luckily he took little damage with improved evasion.

    IIRC the cave is supposed to open up after you kill x amount of dwarves, so it was probably just a counting cockup. The game does that sometimes, unfortunately. :/

    Hunh. And I thought computers were supposed to be "counting machines".

    OK. Doing the WotGS quest. When I get to the temple of Cuthbert, the game keeps crashing in the first round of combat, usually when their mage casts ice storm. The only thing I have summoned is Mordenkainen's faithful hound, otherwise, there are no other vfx active on the party. My chipset (laptop) is ATI Radeon HD 7600G. I've never had this problem before with ice storm. Oh, I had my sorc cast ice storm to test it, and it happened again. I also have ll the video settings in the game at their lowest possible setting.

    I just tried that again. All factors are the same. This time, the game crashed as the first enemy charged.

    Delete and reinstall? Corrupt save?

    Uninstalled, reinstalled, and reactivted the modpak. Progressed from a couple of saves bak. Crashes at start of combat, before anyone is even highlighted. Pretty much as soon as combat icons appear on top of the screen. grr

    Have you consoled anything in?

    Reinstalling won't fix anything if you're using the same saves because they'll just reintroduce whatever the issue is. I'd try going to Hommlet pre-WotGS and see if anything's wrong.

    I haven't consoled anything in. I have gone back to an earlier save and am trying again.

    I went back to a save before I talked to Ariakis. I proceeded with the quest, defeated the first mob, then took out the guard on the east road. Defeated the hexorites at the Druid Grove, then the inn. Tried to liberate the temple. Game crashed.i used different saves than before. Is there a console command that would set the quest to complete before I delete the whole game out of sheer frustration?

    OK, I dug around here and found the console command

    game.quests[#].state = qs_completed

    And the example they gave was

    game.quests[#].completed()

    so I'm typing

    game.quests[97].completed()

    And I get the following error:

    What am I doing wrong? It looks like a syntax error, but I'm stymied

    That should do it.

    I think you actually need that one IIRC.

    I'd still be curious to know what happens around the Temple before you initiate the WotGS quest.

    Is there a map of Hommlet during WotGS somewhere? I'm having trouble finding the north road guards. I've followed the main road all the way north, but it ends at the temple, and I killed everyone there.

    They're on the back side of the temple...
