    Well. For whatever reason my perfectly good install of the patches was running fine, and up to killing everyone except Zuggmoty it was great. It crashed and I lost all of it.... everything. I am reinstalling, and I have 4.0.0 and the frontend, but when I run it I do not get the kids. Bad sign. I also have the problem with the Caravan, and I think this is related. Could someone please help as to why I am installing the patches but they do not seem to work. I am not doing anything wrong with the last try, I have the Atari patches, but I does not want to go for me. I have read that on the initialization of the game you should get the kids for proper assurance of the patches working, but I have yet to do so. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks. I can't play my evil party until this is fixed, so don't be biased I am trying to be evil.

    Actually, thanks. I found the kids hiding under their beds in the house (I guess they have been sent there with the butcher of Hommlet rep) and they were easy prey. All evil is a go.......

    Front-end won't run(v. 4.0.0). It was working fine, but had to reload windows due to "problems" w/ initial install. What am I missing?

    By-the-by, once you're in the caravan map(Allyx's, starting out) how come the merchants don't talk to me, and why can't i leave??????? Sorry for the double post. I'll look for this and other answers on the "common problems & solutions" thread.

    You can't leave because the only way out is through dialog with the merchants.

    As to why you can't talk to them, most likely it's because your installation is screwed up. I would say a re-install might be in order.
