New x64 install can't load x32 save games

Have a new Win x64 and downloaded and installed both daggerfall setup and the x64 version of Alpha 10.3 DFU. Fired up the game and entered the path to my old x32 save games. No joy. It doesn't see them. Is there a way I can reenter the path? Or are the x32 saves lost? (I really, really hope not!!!) :(

Re: Shields Material vs Armor Rating

Some time ago, I posted a similar note about shields. My gripe was that the armor value of a given shield was fixed, regardless of the material type - e.g. all tower shields were +4 whether they were leather or daedric (same as in classic). Only the color changed to indicate material. I believe the ...

Unity for other classic games?

Is anyone thinking about adapting other classics to the Unity system? Two of my favorites are done - Daggerfall (DFU) and Diablo 1 (Diablo HD - not using Unity). My third all-time favorite is Betrayal at Krondor, but I understand there may be copyright problems with that one.

Re: Improving Dungeon Crawling

In classic (back in the day) I used to map quest dungeons as I went through them. I noted existing dungeon markers like candles, bottles, skulls, etc and dropped useless ingredients when necessary to mark an explored area. For hidden doors, I rotated the 3D map image and examined the walls. Both wor...

Earning XP

Something that has never been clear to me in either classic or Unity - Does completion of a quest earn you XP toward leveling, or just increased rep with the quest giver? It seems to be the latter, which means you can't effectively play a non-warrior PC. Also, I know this has come up before, but hav...

Magic item repair

Now that the magic item maker is on line, can magic items repair be added? In the classic, having 'magicrepair 1' in Z.cfg enhances the 'repair object' power of the item maker. Another, related, question - If you enchant 'strengthens armor' or 'added spell points', for example, will that never need ...

"Relic" console command

The "Help Add" console command gives "relig" as an option. I thought this was a typo for "relic". Tried "Add Relic 1" with no joy. Then tried "Add Relig 1" with 'success' and found I had received a non-magical candle. Tried again and just got misc items (no magic). I was trying to get an artifact pe...
