    I can't find the secret doors on the ground floor of the Moat House :thumbsdow
    I've had this happen twice (the first time I just stopped and started the game with a new party) if there a fix for this?

    If you did not detect the secret doors in the room where the first floor bandits are at, there's a very good chance you will not detect any other secret doors in the game.

    Update on problem.

    I've now had three games in a row where this is a problem. Any suggestions?

    The only change has been that I implemented the Fear of Ghosts patch in my last normal game, can't imagine that that would have caused the problem but...

    Dont re-use the saves once the secret door glitch appears. You must start fresh saves.

    ^ Yes: The Circle of Eight Modpack Explained: Known Issues

    It never left us. All we ever did was replace the Moathouse secret doors to see if that would do anything. If you're playing Co8 8, that pretty much means it didn't, but honestly we weren't expecting it to.

    We didn't lower any requirements or alter the checks at all, fwiw.

    Thanks Gaear, I coulda swore I read somewhere that the doors were showing a zero.

    That's what happens when you get old. ;)

    That's actually a bug that Gazra encounters all the time, but it's not universal and the doors aren't actually set to 0.

    When I start a new game, the 1st thing I do when I get to homlet is save my game, and then console inv rings to my PCs. Then I go to the moathouse. If I cant see the secret doors, I start a new fresh game. Nothing is worse than doing all the fedex quests to gain levels and the bog only to find out you cant see any secret doors for the rest of the game. If you cant find the doors at the moathouse, you wont be able to see any for the rest of the game. If I can see the secret doors, I go back to my save I had before I consoled the rings (I wouldnt want to cheat now) and continue my game. This has not failed me yet. :thumbsup:

    That could be the problem, level 1 characters can only have a max search skill of 4, IIRC you need 5 to find it... but bare in mind I've been out of the loop for a while, it might have changed since I last played.

    He's reported this in KotB too: might be worth checking his specs and getting to the bottom of this.

    Maybe put a secret door on the shop map that leads to the portal, so you cant continue unless it is found.

    I'd like to try something - can you post a save that has the secret door bug going?

    Ahem ... well, I guess that IS more pressing than finding out why some rigs can't run KotB at all. :p
