    Wow, you're right, Ted! That's a mighty weird way for the game to tell me that though, never seen it happen before... why can't the explanation window say directly that the Dex bonus is decreased due to being encumbered, rather than the cryptic "reduced by item: Brown Leather Boots"?

    EDIT: Also, werid stuff w/ experience. I remember, in 5.5.0 when I was fighting big groups of enemies, lower-level party members gained more XP, which allowed them to "catch up" faster. Right now though, I just finished one battle, and my lvl3 paladin gained roughly 100XP less than the rest of the level5 party. What's going on?

    Were you fighting a really high level monster?
    E.g. for a CR11 monster, level 3 PCs get 10800XP, whereas level 5 PCs get 12000XP.

    Code:
    CR Level =     [[-01 , 000 , 001 , 002 , 003 , 004 , 0005 , 0006 , 0007 , 0008 , 0009 , 00010 , 00011 , 00012 , 00013 , 00014 , 00015 , 00016 , 00017 , 00018 , 00019 , 00020 , 00021 , 00022 , 00023 , 00024 , 00025 , 00026 , 00027 , 00028 , 00029 , 00030]]
    PC LVL 1 =     [[100 , 150 , 300 , 600 , 900 , 1350 , 1800 , 2700 , 3600 , 5400 , 7200 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800]]
    PC LVL 2 =     ([100 , 150 , 300 , 600 , 900 , 1350 , 1800 , 2700 , 3600 , 5400 , 7200 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800 , 10800])

    What I meant is, 5 PC got different amount of XP EACH. I was fighting Ogre Chieftain w/ a bunch of lower-lvl stuff on temple lvl1

    No idea why activation issues would be happening now, as TFE-X has not changed since the last release, but I suppose that anybody who experiences an apparent hang in the activation should ctrl-alt-del out and reactivate again, then. Hopefully Agetian can take a look at it some time.

    Also, one of the most annoying bugs from earlier versions is still there: on a miscast, a spontaneous caster loses 2 spell slots rather than one. I don't think this should happen. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Can I offer a possible suggestion.

    Would it be possible in the Trader's Inn (my name for the pre-vignette's start point) to place the scrolls in chests dependent on the class of either cleric or sorcerer/wizard? Or at least adjust the item.mes (or wherever the descriptions are stored) of each scroll so you can know what you are buying. Perhaps "Cleric/1st lvl" or somthing akin to it.

    I found something kind of odd while finishing the fire node.

    I hate the bodaks. I hate how they kill you and everything. So, to prevent this, I summoned a mordenkainen's sword and dropped it in front of all of them. One of the bodaks used it's death gaze on the sword, it failed it fortitude save and died, lol. I don't think a bodak's death gaze should be able to affect things without eyes that aren't alive. Check it out...

    You mean, even those who had identical levels?

    Was able to activate the 5.8 mod after letting it go all night. 2 questions, I can't get it to let me play 6 players, I change the setting and saved the setting, add 6 players, but when the game starts only the first five are there.

    Also, there is no starting inventory screen here? I would think some of the starting scenarios would be hard without any weapons.

    I tested the consecrate spell under the conditions you describe (both at EM, fighting the skeleton priest, and elsewhere) and had no problems.

    Sounds like you're playing vanilla, GG. Did you do the no-cd routine and all that? Does the splash screen say 5.8?

    Ya, I had just finished killing the failor. I go straight to him as soon as I go into the node so I can have all my spells and health handy.

    Had to go with the crack, and splash screen does say 5.8NC. Running 6/8 characters from Front End, but still lose the last member. I'm running a true neutral party, so I start at the Druid temple.


    Edit: Did an experiment and activated 5.50, and I get the same thing, no starting inventory screen. Splash screen does say 5.50 Beta, won't let me have 6 players.

    Something's not right, GG. No shopmap means that at least parts of 5.8 are not there. Maybe your long activation times issue is to blame.

    Did you try the thing where you ctrl-alt-del out the first time and then do it again?
