Good to see Darq coming to EGS at last in a non-exclusive capacity.
Developer is still giving money to charity too while also receiving a payment from Epic.

He answers some questions here.
Got Darq but didn't play it yet, what an ambience it has, B&W and foreboding.

Just like Ignatius, finished it this week, 70% off on Steam, dirt cheap, a few cents.
Liked it a lot, though I used cheat engine.
Spoiler (select to see if desired) :
Ignatius, Life Bar, 4bytes, full = 4, decreases by 1 with each hit, address ends in 4.
Freeze it and you only die if falling in voids. Can walk safely on lava, etc.

Sorry, update for eRe4s3r on Might & Magic X Legacy :

WannaLogAlready wrote on Oct 21, 2021, 12:00:
Sorry eRe4s3r, just saw your post.
- Nexus mods:
"Weak Ability Booster"
"Class Skill Selection Rebalance" or now the recent "Ultra Difficulty and free skills class".
"MIght and Magic Experience curve mod and bugfixes"
https://www.nexusmods.com/mightandmagicx/
- Quick search of my Glovepie files, found this:
In Glovepie, paste this
Key.Left = delta(Mouse.DirectInputX) < -1 in mickeys
Key.Right = delta(Mouse.DirectInputX) > 1 in mickeys
Gives a kind of mouse fast free look while turning around with your mouse and not having to press keys constantly for mere quarter turns.
And I always love appreciating the game world and better spying enemies and objectives.
Disable Glovepie when not playing or the mouse pointer will act odd.

Reminiscing took me to re-installing the game for another play
As there are no console tweaks, cheats, tables, and don't know if old trainers work anymore, I post what I found for now with Cheat Engine in a quick and dirty search.
This for anyone that could be interested.

Changing all 8 attributes for each hero in the party, have to do it once only :
Spoiler, select to see.
For doing this choose Windowed in Options, and not Fullscreen as the game may crash with alt tabbings. Later choose what you want.
Inventory: Might, Magic, Perception, Destiny, Vitality, Spirit, Health, Mana or whatever.
example in decimal: 5, 17, 4, 7, 4, 12 and above, Health and Mana, 52, 70, whatever values you chose when creating heroes. Take note.
Change the values to hexadecimal, separate them with 00 00 00
Cheat Engine, File, Open Process, 0000xxxx-Might and Magic X Legacy"
Choose Value Type ARRAY OF BYTE, tick Hex, paste the chains, 1 for each search, First Scan
to hexadecimal, 05 00 00 00 11 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 07 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 0C 00 00 00 xx 00 00 00 xx
ARRAY OF BYTE, 00 00 00 between values in Inventory for Might, Magic, Perception, Destiny, Vitality, Spirit, Health, Magic
After 4 searches, 1 for each hero, you should get 8 results, (each time, select the 2 results, tick on the red arrow, so they appear below).
Replace the all with 12 00 00 00 12 00 00 00 12 00 00 00 12 00 00 00 12 00 00 00 12 000 63 000 63.
Ingame, go out and into your inventory, you now have 18 points in all 6 attributes, and 99 for the last 2 above. Can use higher values, don't go crazy."
after the Spirit value : 00 00 00 xx 00 00 00 yy, xx is health, and yy is magic or whatever
if you want 99 for both values, change to 00 00 00 63 00 00 00 63 as I put above.

But can't remember now how much I used it.

- And with Cheat Engine, would have to search my portables (some 70 fully used) data base to find the .CT file, too lazy right now Snore
Extra action points and diverse power ups if I rightly recall, similar as what I used in the Divinity Original Sin games.

Love this game so much, totally changed/modded as usual.
Heh, got caught red handed, now they're little Ubisoft angels.
But nice anyway to have mended the game, and offering the DLC for free.
Was covered anyway but much better this way, and also for new gamers.

This are extraordinary news, confirms Sony decision to bring classics old and eventually new to PCs. No matter the delays, it's breaking the ice.
I hope that good games bring Sony good returns, so perpetuating this trend.
Microsoft seems ok with this too.
Now, for those old Nintendo dinosaurs
Wonderful !

I got about 250 hours out of the game before I felt like I had seen everything I needed to.
The general idea is:
  • explore and experience the different procedurally-generated environments
  • accumulate resources
  • accumulate ships
  • build bases
  • build resource extractors for income
  • acquire and improve your freighter

Thanks, nice list to use !
Noticed you have 9 posts spanning 17 years, 1st one in 2004
Had to view that old post, and found nin with 41600 posts then, and Enjoy with 21176 posts.
Where are they, what are they doing, ah, the melancholy of times gone.
Lately I find increasingly fascinating anything old and picturing where was I at that time.

Waiting for the october 28 Steam sale to buy BL3.

I've played BL 1, 2, TPS, all DLCs.
Every mission, every place, fascinated by the world and views (without black borders and cell shading), and frantic action.
Crowning it with my greatest VR experience so far, BL2 VR, comes with all DLCs, with M&K (x360ce.exe + glovepie).
Wow.

... got about 50 mins into the Pre-Sequel.....
Happened to me.
Hated the Oxygen replenishing trope and initial barren moon motif.
Years later, erased the tiresome O2 need with cheat engine among other QOLs, and found a beautiful gripping game.

Had a TV years ago, didn't use it, finally gifted it to family.
Wanted a small backup monitor, bought the only model "small" enough available, has TV capability and never used that.
Collected hundreds of movies and series through the years, but stopped.
Can't get the interest to see even the tiniest fraction, finding so few of them as entertaining as games.

Installed, tested it for half an hour, uninstalled.
Graphics and mechanics are too archaic, it pained me to play.
But glad to have tried it, always good to add experiences.

Better try the excellent ESO online (you *don't* have to pay a monthly price once bought).

We will never go to war with China.
Not over trade or Taiwan.
Defending Taiwan against mainland China is certainly a challenge, and one the US military loses consistently in war games (although taking steps to remedy the past few years). However, there's one thing this op/ed gets wrong:
That leaves as the best option something most Americans find unsatisfying: refuse to engage in direct combat against China on behalf of Taiwan. Doing so will allow the United States to emerge on the other side of a China/Taiwan war with our global military and economic power intact.
If you think chip shortages are bad now (causing all the missing cars in Mr. Tact's dealer lots), wait until the mainland invades Taiwan. Losing Taiwan as a free trading nation with its 60% semiconductor market share crashes the world economy. There isn't an industry that exists that isn't dependent on technology in either all or some respects. Without Taiwan, there is no US economy. We're taking steps to remedy this (new fabs have broken ground in AZ for example), but these take billions of dollars and years to build and staff. It will be decades before we're self-sufficient in this area.
There are many reasons why we are not self sufficient in semiconductors. The most prominent of which I'm guessing would be unchecked capitalism.
In other words it's our fault. I don't see the American public supporting war in Taiwan for something that we caused in the first place.
Especially considering it's a war we would lose.
It doesn't matter whose fault it is. Semiconductors are the new oil, and Taiwan is 60% of the market. There's no US (or world) economy without Taiwan, it's just that simple. There's literally no other country more important than Taiwan in this regard. If China invaded Japan, or Russia invaded Great Britain, those countries are actually less important economically to the US than Taiwan is. We could get by without their economic input into the US. Not so with Taiwan. It's an existential threat.
And that is why China eventually will win the foremost place as World Power.
It's a dictatorship with a monolithic leadership and clear long range methodic plans.

While the USA is bitterly divided thanks to a ridiculous two party system with electors (!), and 1 person equals X votes depending on the state, gerrymandering, etc, permitting all manners of dirty maneuverings.

And, critically, it's economic power (greedy corporations) would flock without a thought to any place in the world if that would assure them of better investments returns.
