Well, apparently there's a problem with them as the don't display, either in FireFox, or using the IETab plugin.

How would it be overpowered to prevent accidentally losing an Arti before ever picking it up, or in many cases before even seeing it?
I'm not talking about while you're wearing/using, but while it's sitting on the ground.

Well, I picked the title for a reason as I'm not really sure.
All I know is that it was my 2nd game and I was on the third level of AoB.

Not sure what caused it.

Just wanted to give a shoutout to the K-Man for the awesome release, and to let him know that the live-feed has lost it's love!

Impression after 1 1/2 plays (crashed in 2nd) :(

Chaingun no longer seems a viable build due to a complete lack of captains and former humans once you hit hell.
Could've been my particular case that just happened to not generate any between 15 and 20 (yes, I blue'd the levels until 20 of course.)

Also, Arti Boots should prevent all floor damage.

Other than potentially losing my favorite build *sigh* It's a nice release.
Hope I can find Arti non-Chainguns to encourage me to try other playstyles.

PS: I really hope that Artis are invulnerable to explosions... it would just be wrong to lose one, without knowing what it even was, due to a stray shot.

The desktop AA settings are usually right next to Application-specific (aka full-screen) settings.
If you find one, you should be really close to the other.

Additionally, there should be font settings for the shortcut (cause you're running the batch file to play, right?)
Perhaps one or two of the other fonts will look better for you than the default in your case.

To those complaining of desktop-level Anti-Aliasing (AA), there are global settings that can be adjusted for every video card made in the last 7+ years.
They might be a bit hidden, but they're there.
Try looking for a brand-specific control panel item (Nvidia/ATI/Intel, etc)

Additionally, you might want to change the font smoothing from ClearType to standard, and/or disable smoothing completely with the checkbox. (Properties>Appearance>Effects...)

If your biggest complaint is the Viles (and I don't blame you) perhaps something along the lines of Viles don't rez other Viles would be more suitable, and be less potentially balance disrupting.

yea, my bad.
I thought of that as what you meant, then somehow turned it to mean that you were talking about the destination tile...
Dunno, probably can be blamed on sleep deprivation.

Would still easily lead to rooms where the only exit is a corridor with the teleporter.

I also get frozen shortly after changing levels.
Mine typically happens between 3 and 4.
I've used MIDI and mp3, and even done a complete wipe and install (of the game directory).
No matter the combination of the above, I still get the freeze.
(This includes a fresh install and no altering of .ini file at all, at some point.)

The game isn't playable anymore for me, as nothing I've done in the last two dozen games will get me past the freeze, and only stupid deaths in the first few levels (almost always the damn Arena) is ever recorded.

PLEASE find out what's causing this!

nokturnal, you haven't played Titan's Quest then....
Then D2, much less D1, seems like a gimped TQ. :P

Mention a word about it, and we'll ass-rape you like Ares was so good at doing!

I don't know if I'd call FO3 alive and kicking...
Bethesda (the people who brought you Oblivion) bought the IP (intellectual property) rights to FO, and let Interplay keep a license, on the conditions that they have to start full-scale development of a FO MMO (uhm, that could be bad...) within 2 years, and publish it within 4.

While it would be foolish for interplay to let FO get away from them, I also don't think they much care, since they've sat on it for how many years now?

I think the outcome (whatever it may be) will be the same if something similar happens to the Dungeon Keeper IP.

Just for the record, I think any Beta mortems should either be in a separate forum, or be tagged in the subject line.
Not fair for those of us not fortunate enough to have access :P
