Possible spoilers for those who haven't played through. I'm finally stepping out of the lurking shadows. I got the game when it first came out, and have been following along over the years, have successfully played through with most of the alignments (all the G and N and NE also), and reinstalled it on my new-to-me compy, running xp pro. I'm patched up, running the front end, though I'm not using the most recent beta (it was doing really weird things, like spawning billions of butterflies/fireflies/whatevers in Hommlet, causing screen freezes, so I reinstalled without it). I'd really like some help with the issues I've listed below. I haven't done any modding with this game on my own, though I'm not averse to getting my hands dirty. I really just want the issues taken care of. In order of importance: 1. I was running through with a NG party, quickly going through Hommlett, the Grove, Emridy Meadows, the Orc cave, the Moathouse, Nulb, and Imredys Run (in that order) with little issue, then went to the "broken tower" guardhouse battle, defeated the guards, and went down to the cavern. When I tried to enter the "back door", I get kicked. I tried every PC in the party, tried again from an earlier save game, and still got kicked from the game. I even restarted with a LG party and got back to the same point, and still, kicked. Occasionally, when I click on the entry icon I seem to move to the new area, but all of my PC's portraits are blank (generic "grey model" pics) and the NPCs are marked like they are ready to level (Trying to level, naturally, gets me kicked). This recurred in both games. Coincidentally, I tried going around the other way, through the "main entrance" of the temple and into the round Air Temple staircase entrance where the 2 med and 1 lg air elementals ambush you, and then trying for the secret door next to the Air temple High priest gives me an identical error. The door I'm speaking of is the "top of the stair" entry leading to Scorpp's Pleasure dome, et al. This error is crippling, and seems specifically isolated to these specific regions. It's really disheartening to not be able to continue because of these bugs. 2. Nulb-specific: I invite Otis along for the ride, and he joins the party with expenses paid. I wander in the temple for a bit, then return to Nulb, and Otis leaves (expected), then I return to the temple, return back to Otis, and try to recruit him, but I am unable to recruit him again, even though, by all accounts, I should. If it matters I tried this with and without Elmo in the party and with and without the Otis-Elmo initial dialog. I was doing this to try to bring Mother Screng and her daughter into the party (I really wasn't too interested in Otis actually being in the party). This is using an LG party. Do I have to reach a specific point in exploring the temple (without going over level 5 with the PCs of course) in order to re-recruit him, or is there another problem going on? 3. Nulb-specific (Brothel): I get Mona's orb back and purchase Serena's freedom, then enter the brothel. I can't "procure services" (because the party is LG), but I can initiate the "get Riana out of the brothel" dialog with her, after the two-sister dialog, and it shows up in the logbook. It also says I'm helping the Madame with the girl upstairs that eventually only likes the ladies. The dialog options keep me from asking to purchase Riana's freedom, because it keeps telling me that I'm "still working" on the girl upstairs. Trying to talk to this girl, of course (even with my friendly female cleric), sends me back to the madame because I "haven't talked to her" yet. I can't talk to the madame, though about a specific girl because of the dialog limitation due to alignment. It's a bit recursive, really, and I'm pretty sure that a different alignment party would have no issue (since I'd be able to ask about hooking up with the girls). I even brought in a dummy NG "diplo-bard" PC, but the party alignment restricts his dialog options, too. Is there some way around this?
