1401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] First Oblivion Mod up on Live on: April 03, 2006, 11:20:54 PM
Rather then quote the various points above, I'll just outline my points.

1) I don't know anything about the specific horse armor available, but if it is more then graphical, IE: Actual armor, it could be helpful, because, while you can't direct your horse, your horse can fight and be killed.

2) It is a limitation on the 360 itself that will prevent home grown mods from ever reaching there. Either MS would have to open up/offer, some kind of community download center or Bethesda would have to do the same on their site then upload the mods for the community usiner their 360 developer account.

3) As for the exporter for models, there is a huge hurdle for this for Oblivion as opposed to Morrowind....Havok Physics....The Havok physics are incorporated into the models and IIRC, needed for the game to read them. Bethesda has a license to use Havok, however, they don't have a license to distribute it, which is what would be required at this point for 3D models to work. I suspect that we will first see static models that don't use Havok, then maybe others, such as characters, but from what I have been reading, it looks like an exporter/importer might be a long time coming.

4) I see a future for the 360 mods, but not as much for the paid PC ones, except for "expansions" such as guilds, quests, etc. and even then it might be a little rough becuase of the free user-created content. An exception, may be new models, particularly, characters and clothes, since those can't be made right now.

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"
Oblivion is probably the first game, let alone RPG, that actually gets HARDER as you grow better at what you declare you're supposed to be good at.


Err, just about all the games get harder as you progress through them. In fact, very few games actually get EASIER as you'd go through it, as that'd destroy just about any sort of challenge a game possesses. Only game off the top of my head that does it backwards is perhaps Gothic II.


He is referring to things that shouldn't be harder.

On the one hand, the leveling system is supposed to keep things fresh, since as you level up, dungeons you have visted in the past are repopulated with newer and harder creatures.

On the other hand, a "typical" RPG will have you level and if you revist some earlier level, they are either empty (from your kills) or respawn with the same stuff.

The first version, provides you with more challenge and tries to keep things fresh. At level 2, those level 4 orcs are a pain in the ass and it showed. When you hit level 10, those level 4 orcs are gone and have been replaced by level 12 trolls, which are still a pain in the ass.

The 2nd version gives you more of a sense of accomplishment as you level. At level 2 those level 4 orcs were a pain in the ass and it showed. When you hit level 10, you can go back and see how easy those level 4 orcs are now. You can see the effects of your advancement.

When I played EQ, I remember having fun and putting the smackdown on lower level (at that point) creatures, who used to put the smackdown on me.

So far I have mixed feelings on the system and will reserve judgement until I finish or I feel that I am getting too frustrated to finish.

I wonder if something like this (link) would help slow the leveling process?


This might be a cheat, but it might be what you are looking for...

Make a customer character.
Find a bunch of major skills you do NOT plan on using.
Choose those for your major skills, keeping all of your "real" skills as minor.
Play and level out your minor skills. You characters level won't go up, but they should be more powerful..

I just completed the Thieves Guild line of quests.  PM me if you have any questions at all.  

That said...

Spoiler for Hiden:
Ok, so I get the uberthief hat that I can't wear anywhere but inside a dungeon as people tend to 'recognize it', and I can 'run' the guild.  Uh..where is the 'run' part?  I can't do anything with the guild!  They don't provide any income or anything.  Am I missing something?


Spoiler for Hiden:
I was pretty disappointed with the outcome of the Thieves Guild Saga as well. I expected to at least "get my cut" or something. From what I recall from the strategy guide, the only benifits are: you have a guild hall and the fence and arman regularly show up so you don't have to chase them, and the cowl. The main benifit of the cowl is that if you commit a crime, the cowl character gets the bounty. As soon as you take off the cowl, your main character doesn't have one. Haven't actually tried ityet though. I would have liked to have been able to send people out on missions, get payments, have people come to me to absolve them of guild misconduct, etc...
1407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 29, 2006, 06:42:04 PM
I just thought of something... Since the surrounding things level with you, you could stay at a low level, say 5 or under, but max out your secondary skills, such as blade or whatever it is, thus, being way more powerful them most things. Of course, this wouldn't help for nonleveled-high-leveled creatures.

Also, if I recall correctly, once you go through the 1st gate, things get progressively worse and gates will randomly appear until you finish the main quest. This is one of the reasons I haven't even started the main quest yet. I think I'm at around 30 hours or so...
1408  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 29, 2006, 02:26:53 PM
I keep hearing about the fast level up and wonder what I am doing wrong... I am only Level 4, yet I have finished the thieves guild section, started mages guild, did a whole lot of misc/town quests.

I suspect it might be that when I created my character, I mainly made him a mage with marksman, no melee or anything else in major skills, however, I have not been using magic as much as I thought I would, so my other skills are leveling up faster, particularly sneak, security, blade, and block.

From reading about leveling, could I theoretically finish the whole game at level 1 (well, now level 4), and max out my secondary skills? Other then boosting you attributes, does leveling actually gain anything for you? It seems like the perks are for leveling specific skills, not your character.

2) Lord Ebonstone needs to let go of the whole "axe as a blunt weapon" gripe. I swear he mentions this at least 5 times in seperate posts. Get over it dude!  :?


some quick links I found... Some may be NSFW, some may not be safe for breakfast....

Do a search for blunt and find the one for Warren, Nov 19th.

These show that, forensicly at least, it seems that axe wounds are considered blunt force trauma and not sharp force trauma.
Generally death by axe results from the force of the blow and not nesescarily the "blade". The blade can cause lacerations/open wounds, but it is the force behind it that causes most of the injuries. The blade may assist in the axe going deeper into someone to cause more of the force to be internal.

I'm sure I could find more, but I also remember reading/hearing about this during discussions of blunt force trauma at EMT class(but it's been a while.)

Also, I have a horse I got by legitimate means.  After exiting the imperial city on one visit, I found that it was now considered a crime for me to ride my horse (the icon changed to red for some reason).  I can't figure that one out either...


Make sure it is your horse at the stable. They look alike, but yours should say "My paint horse" or whatever.

I haven't done anything on the main quest after the initial dungeon. I think I might try to do all the other missions in the game first.

ALL the other missions? We'll see you in a month. biggrin

31.5 hours in, and I know I haven't scratched the game. Only 'done' 2 towns and parts of the Imperial City, none of the main quest, and a smattering of the Guilds/Arena line.

We'll see you in a while.


Maybe, but it "seems" like I'm going through them at a pretty good clip so far. I am in the Thieve's Guild, Mage's Guild, andDark brotherhood. so far, quite a few quests are in the same areas for each other. I "think" that I have done at least 1/2 of 3 towns so far. I think I will use the hintbook and make an excel sheet with all of the quest names so I can check them off as I do them to see if I miss any...

Having NPC's follow you is interesting.

Once I was somewhere stealing stuff and got caught, so I ran. The person followed me out of the castle, and into someone else's house.

Another time I got caught (see a pattern?) I went outside, ran towards a guard and let the person chasing me hit me. Since the guard so that and not my tresspassing, he started to lay the smackdown on him!

I haven't done anything on the main quest after the initial dungeon. I think I might try to do all the other missions in the game first.

If possible, see if these work on xp. If so, I'll take them but want to hold off on the shipping until your list is finalized.


I can't verify off the top of my head if they do.  I'm wanting to say that Wing Commander 2 will with Dosbox, and I -believe- X-Wing works in XP as is, because IIRC the collector's edition was for Win 95.


OK, drop Wing 2 from my choice, add Starlancer and Wing Commander 4.
1418  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / the not so obvious Oblivion stuff on: March 25, 2006, 01:41:19 AM
1st off the title is misleading as this IS about Oblivion! smile

1) to drop stuff from inventory, hold shift, then click on it. If you have 2 or less items, they select individually. If you have 3+ items, an option comes up to select how many you want.

2) Hit tab, as in inventory. At the bottom right, next to magic is a compass. Click on that. the row of icons above it are: 1) local map. 2) world map and fast travel. click on a location. 3) active quest 4) journal/quests

3) Similiar to 2, click the health/magicka/fatigue bars, you can see all your stats here by clicking the different icons.

Has anyone else successfully completed the Painted Trolls quest?  I went in there at level 3 and got my ass kicked.  Any tips?

But I loved the art style!


I ran to that right out of the dungeon as that was my favorite quest from the press demo.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Make sure you use the turpentine on your weapons.
There is also one specific out cropping that they can't get to. go on top of it and keep casting flare.
Arrows don't seem to do much damage, fire does more. hit with poisoned arrow/sword then switch to flare.

Anyone else bothered by the quick travel system?  If you choose to use it, you will wind up going city to city without ever seeing the vastness and the beauty of the game.  It doesn't make sense to make a game of this magnitude and then give you the option to bypass everything that we've all been oohing and aahing over for so long.

I may could understand if you could quick travel to places you've been before, but it's insanse to let you quick travel to a place for the first time.  How many people are using it and how many people are like me and have decided to walk/ride horses so we can appreciate the game?

I'm really surprised no one else is bothered by this.


I am not bothered by this at all. I am glad they gave you a chocie. Someone on the offical forums mentioned needing a mod to remove the auto attempt from lockpicking. I told him that it was unneeded as well. BOTH are OPTIONS. You don't have to fast travel and you don't have to auto-attempt. If people can't control their own actions, why should I suffer? Yes the countryside is nice now, but when you take the same run for the 5th time, you might want fast travel available. It's really no different then the silt striders from MW, except you have it avauilable all the time...

1426  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Odd Oblivion issue on: March 22, 2006, 08:19:44 PM
We have a "demo" PC in the shop that we mess around with for gaming and such. We had Quake 4 loaded and it ran great. We loaded Oblivion yesterday, played, then went back to Quake 4. It ran horribly. Eventually we traced it back to something causing the settings in Quake 4 to change. We are assuming it was Oblivion because that was the only thing different.
It is running on:
PIV 3.6
2GB
7900GTX 512MB
Windows Media Center.

Anyone already have Q4 installed and can see if this happened?
We are going to try to recreate it by wiping the system when we get a chance.

...I mean when I took that horse there were no guards around, and when I killed a woman yesterday it was around 5am outside town and there were no guards in sight, yet they all come rushing at you to arrest you somehow..


Can someone take the time to explain this please.  I thought "cheating" A.I. was limited to Turn-Based and Real-Time Strategy games.  Now it's in roleplaying games too?!?

To me, all the graphic "glitches" in the world are incredibly minor things compared to something like this.  Is there an explanation for why this happened to corr?  Cause frankly, I think this blows.


The thing with this is, if noone is around AND you sneak kill them in one blow, you will be ok. The one blow must be equal to pure melee damage before poisons and not counting magic. Anything else and the person is able to "cry an alarm".

1) I think one hit kills shouldn't cause an alarm, regardless of if it's done with poison or not (magic, I can understand because it's loud.)

2) I think that the range of hearing for characters is too high. If I attack someone alone in their house and kill them before they get out, there shouldn't be an alarm.

One question for anyone else here: After I hit and hold the 'get' key to grab something, how do I throw it?  I can pull bodies really slowly, but I can't pick up a cup and launch it, which seems odd.  I can use a discus throwers motion (side release, momentum + inertia carries the object forward), but no real 'oomph' in throwing things.


You pretty much figured out the only way for this. I was hoping for a throw similiar to Thief3, so you could use it as a distraction.

Went in this afternoon to the GS where I pre-paid for my CE edition. Unfortunately the ASSistant Manager, whom I dislike, was there. He had pulled the regular editions (which my friend bought), but told me that it would take an hour for him to go through the 3-4 boxes he had left. 1 HOUR for 3-4 small boxes...

Also, and he has done this to me before, he basically ignored me after I asked for Oblivion (and before my friend paid for his) and started helping a customer who had come in after us, even though we were waiting. I really can't stand him. He somes off as rude to me and seems very anti-social.

As soon as all my pre-orders are done (most are store credit, which I don't know if you can transfer) I am going to stop going there and I'm seriously thinking about writing to the district manager. I never had a problem there when the old store manager was there.


Seriously - write to the DM.  Thats a load of crap.


Yeah, I decided tonight that I am going to. I went back and found out that they didn't have any CE's! Apparently, none of the other GS's nearby got any either (except for the 360 version, bah..)It would have taken him 5 minutes to check the boxes and tell me that so I didn't have to make a 2nd trip for nothing. One other reason I was holding back was that I like most of the people in the store and didn't want to get "the store" in trouble. I found out that wasn't the case and that other customers have complained. I figured it's better to try to get him out before he ruins the stores whole reputation.

On a side note, the manager was nice enough that I got a regular edition to play and can return it when the CE's come in, so I'm not SOL! Yay!
We already tried my friends copy at work on a PIV 3.6Ghz, 2GB, 7900GTX 512MB system. Maxed out everything and it ran smooth. smile

Hey Punisher.  Thanks for the questions:

1.  Yes.  To get advice on how to better pose her, lighting, etc.   The standard stuff.   I'd post it on a photography forum, but I know you guys much better than anyone on some strange forum and thus I somehow feel more comfortable posting it here (and thought the same about OO before the trolls showed up).

2.  sexy/sultry

3.  It's a recent hobby for me.   My whole gallery that includes other shots are at www.pbase.com/msduncan

4.  Yes.  The colors were very reddish/warm.   I did some color correction to get it right.  Other than that, none.

5.  Yeah... gotten several responses that mention the background 'clutter'.   Will work on fixing that with maybe a backdrop or something.

6.  The shadows under the arms were major problems.   Especially making her breasts appear strange for some reason.  I didn't see it until after I downloaded the pictures to the computer.

7.  Yeah.  She hated that part.   I think it was the shadows or something.   Her breasts don't look like that in person.   I also didn't notice this until post-editing.

8.  So don't half-do the tattoo.  Hide it or completely show it.   Gotcha.  Probably acts as a distraction if it's only partly shown because people try to make out what it is....

9.  That's the most common remark thus far.   Will be corrected in the next shoot.   Thanks!

10.  Great idea!

Thanks for the questions/feedback.   Very very good.   Very helpful.



1) OK, just wasn't sure if you were focusing on one thing or not. It might be beneficial to purchase an inexpensive starter light kit.

2) OK, that seems to have been done. smile

3) Looked at the gallery. I like the B&W stairs and the colorized stairs. How is the helicopter a WIP? Do you honestly think they are going to stay hovering there while you snap pictuyres? slywink

4) hmmm, I was specifically thinking about the blur, it looks like a bad photoshop job. That is mostly what bothered me about the background, not the clutter. Might be a focus issue on the camera. Speaking of which, what kind do you use?

5) See 4 above

6) yeah the left arm doesn't look evenly lit. One of the reasons I mentioned a light kit.

7) I didn't think they looked like that when she wasn't leaning on them. smile It may have been shadow, but it looked like they were folded in on themselves.

Cool Yeah, half-way is distracting. Maybe cover it with makeup or PS it out if it's half-way. Can't tell how far down it goes, so I don't know if you should be showing the whole thing or not.  :lol:

9) Besides different hair styles, you could also try wigs...Guess it depends on how far you want to go with this....

I am a very basic amatuer photographer/videographer. Pure hobby and just begining and I wouldn't know a f-stop from a bus stop... smile

I am curious about some things...

1) What is the intent on posting this? To get better at picture taking? lighting? posing? etc... Serious question.

2) What were you trying to accomplish with the pictur itself? was it supposed to be sexy, cute, etc... If we know your intent, we can make sure that we are commenting on the correct thing.

3) Do you plan on making photography a job or hobby? Do you plan on different subject matter or stay specifically with people in general or your wife(?) specifically?

4) Did the picture include postwork? If so, what?

5) The background looks "wierd".

6) Lighting seems good except on her left arm.

7) The pose makes her chest area look unnatural and "folded over"

Cool Tatoo should eithe rbe hidden or (if appropriate) shown.

9) Hair style should expose more of her face, but the half hidden eye does look interesting.

10) If you plan on doing this more often, you should post small series of pictures to help illustrate your strengths and weaknesses. Different lighting, poses, etc...

For those interested, there are pics of the paint quest I mentioned on pg 243 of the strategy guide. They don't, however, have quite the impact as seeing them in person.
