    Potential Spoiler info.

    Okay, this has been bothering me for some time, but I always seem to forget to post it.

    After I kill the orcs in the orc cave, I find a "Vial of Orc's Blood." Why is it there? I can't figure out if it is used for anything or if a sadistic modder put it there just to make me crazy. :rant:

    Help?

    Start a new game, and try "meta-gaming" the Bing situation...

    (make sure you're up to date on the CMF, including post 5.04 additions)

    You know, I had something bizarre happen with that vial. I put it in a container (I think the one that spawns by the Smith. I use that chest to store things I think I might need later but don't know what for.) The next time I looked at the inventory in the chest, it had turned into a door! I could drop it on the map, and there would be a door on the map. Then I could pick it up and move it somewhere else. Reeeaally strange...

    hmmm...

    Maybe Gruumsh gets his name from the creaky sound of a certain door-shaped artifact! :doh:

    It's a portable GATE to orcish abyss!! :yikes:

    Things that aren't recognized by the program or correctly implemented get created as "doors". No great mystery; something's got a typo in it.

    Then I guess if I've never seen it before, that's a testament to the high quality of work from the modders here at Co8.

    A lot of doors turned up in the earlier (internal) versions of KotB, as the divergent advancement of KotB and Co8 5.0.x clashed.

    Don't worry about it ;)

    Well, now I've updated to 5.0.4 and the Orc Blood isn't in the chest in the Orc Cave. Maybe I have to cure Bing before I go to the orc cave? I'm gonna try that and see, then try the earlier suggestion about using the orc blood on Bing and see what happens.

    With 5.0.4 I can't even finish curing Bing. I heal him and he responds, but Jakk never accepts it. The dialogue doesn't pop up concerning the healed Bing.

    Will check on this. Mea culpa if something is wrong but it may be to do with what you have got installed on CMF thread - don't forget to delete those .pyc files.

    Hey, deleting the .pyc's is the first thing I do when I have any problem.
    I've thought about doing a complete reinstall, but have been too lazy.

    Just checking because someone raised similar issues re. Bing in the CMF bug thread and it turned out that they hadn't installed the CMF fix for this correctly (check where those files are going as not everyone does a complete file tree on that thread :p ).

    re. vial of blood. It should appear on the orc chieftain and only if a certain quest is active. So you won't see it every time. I think. Been a while since I did it and I have a bad memory ;)

    A few options...

    -leave the house, and enter again (maybe after resting)
    -talk to her sister before Jakk
    -talk to Terjon, then with Jakk
    -all the above mentioned

    Sincerely, i don't understand how players have so many problems... i never had any problem... ,maybe some CTD but because i've messed with protos; the only real problem that kind is the orc cave, after killing them the text in the book becomes a blank space and never gets completed (i never see the orc blood, but because i didn't loot them); there is also reports of the bug door, which i've never see neither...strange.:shrug:

    That's because you had it. ;) Just kidding, but the bug is all about
    non-appearing doors.

    D'oh! I forgot to write "bug door in ToEE"

    Yup, i know wath's the bug door. I keep track of that in the "feedback" thread... it's not my field :shy: , but i'm very curious ...

    I mean, i never (really, never) had problems (well, the Ally's shopmap did'nt work at first, but a reinstall to add the CMF 5.0.4 later, it worked perfectly) , most of my pestering was about to change this and that...also, Livonya never had el bicho (the bug :p), while other are overwelmed with him...

    a compatibility problem?

    and, shame on me, i use the crack yes :giggle:
