Do you have Temple+ installed? It's fixed there. I have never faced this bug with Temple+.
I have it downloaded but not installed. It caused a lot of game crashes when i 1st tried it so i gave up on it.. Will see if i can sort it without for now. Open spell didn't work so will try knock spell next. If that dosn't work will see if Temple+ will sort it mid game. Thanks
Temple+ is a definitely worth it for fixes and stability. That's not to downplay anything the original Co8 achieved.
But...due to some of the data changes... I would advise you to restart the game or as a minimum install it while progression is very early and not wait.
Fwiw, I found Temple+ to be more stable. Use a recent version, as it has gone through many iterations and improvements. In the case that you are referring to an older download of more than a year ago.
Installed it. Blah!. Can't change Resolution or Gamma (brightness) and the Cursor is all over the place. It works, Bug gone, but the game looks bad. Just looking around to see if there are options hidden somewhere else than Configuration or Rules. In game Options seems to be useless, can't change brightness there and the resolution there is not the same one as in Configuration. Just going through the web sites to see if it can be changed.
What OS are you using? Also, are you using a more modern version of the original ToEE with PC fixes like that from GoG? For a windows OS, you shouldn't see much difference. The Temple+ config should allow changes, much like the original Co8 install did, but much easier and without having to reinstall.
Note that the in game video options will not do anything. If brightness is a make-or-break issue, then you'll have to do that from your graphics card programs settings afaik. (I've personally found the default brightness fine at 1920 x 1080, but ofc you may not.)
Changed to win 10 a few months ago, upgraded graphics card software same time.. Bought and Downloaded CoG Toee and downloaded new versions of Co8 downloads. Played the game for a month or 2, a few bugs, castle in Verbabonc ghosts didn't work. Despite killing Zert and the others at Moathouse, the ghost quest didn't work properly and a few others. Decided to try again with new heroes. That's when Secret Door Bug started. 1st time alignment was CG i think. 2nd time was NG. I think Co8 tried to vary the game depending on alignment, which caused bugs. Should have ignored alignment and let peeps just play game as they wanted. Temple + is new as well, few months. Didn't have it last time i played. I am playing through widescreen tv, temple tried high resolution with a 4:3 Ratio but my tv works best at 1024x768x32 toee resolution and can't change gamma so it looks very dark and screeched out with black bars each side. Tired now so will leave at that and post again tomorrow if i can think of anything that might help.
Hmm, that's more tricky. I remember playing Bioshock and Grim Dawn on an older widescreen TV: Grim Dawn was not bad but Bioshock did need a brightness adjustment.
The resolution can be manually selected via the temple+ configuration file without problems. You can try 1024x768 and maybe some others to see how that goes.
The brightness on the other hand would be through either the TV brightness or via graphics card desktop settings ->almost all cards allow for the choice between program control or manually specified desktop settings (ie, desktop brightness). So you'd select the option to go with the graphics card control over program control.
I think that you are harsh here for a fan-based expansion and a fix of a game that essentailly did not work well out of the box - even with the updated GoG version. Co8 actually solved many bugs and made the game playable. The alignment variation at start is part of the original vanilla design.
The added ghosts quest content can be buggy (I've had it work and not work) but it's not going to make or break the game. You can search through this forum for sequence particulars or make a thread requesting help.
