Time for the occasional Daggerfall thread! Ask for help, trade characters, overall video game discussion.

Link: http://wiwiki.wiwiland.net/index.php/Daggerfall_:_DaggerfallSetup_EN

Daggerfall with all the official patches, unofficial patches(reccomended), and goodies such as quest packs and other languages.

Also eases installation and cuts out the dos command middle man.

>> No.3246560

>>3245678
All of them are situational and they're not a reliable skill to be used to not fight anything. You'd need to train them up to 51 for them to be somewhat alright, and even at max(which is very hard to get) it's not a guarantee. Orcish, Impish, and Daedric are the languages that you'd probably get the most mileage out of. The linguist class is a handicap class because you LITERALLY have to start with nothing going for you except skills that have a small use.

I see the picture is blurred by scaling, and the font is different, but what difference does it make what output you select in DOSbox.config?

Is it simply necessary for that type of scaling, or does it have any other effects on the image?
How do the different output setting affect performance/framerate?

It's hard to find good information on DOSbox settings so I ask here.

I got stuck watching a LP of Battlespire once. It didn't look like a game I'd want to play myself, and I was initially just curious what it was like, but then I just couldn't stop watching.

>>3245605
I'm really excited about this project, been following it off and on for awhile. Recently I was thinking how someone might just totally overhaul the minimap, because frankly it's utter shit. First thought was kind of a graph in 3D space, because when you look at the mini-map you only really care about the entrances/exits, and it's really hard to look at the existing minimap and see "oh I haven't been over there, okay now how the fuck do I get there." so an overhauled minimap should let you select some exit that you haven't taken and then plot a course to it (this is a small problem, choosing the path, but not a big deal.)

Anyhow, I could see Daggerfall for Unity revitalizing Daggerfall. I badly want that game to live up to my nostalgia but it always disappoints me when I actually play it.

I agree anon, Daggerfall and Arena aren't the best.
I really like Daggerfall as an actual RPG, having dice rolls and actual timed quests is a fantastic method of doing things, and adding a small amount of challenge to any quest, regardless of how easy. My objective favourite (and second favourite over all) is Morrowind, as it has many things that Daggerfall did, but translated into a newer 3D less clunky game. My nostalgic favourite is Oblivion, i couldn't tell you why, I just really love the world call me a sucker for generic fantasy but eh.

As cool as this sounds in concept and has some awesome ideas this game is completely broken. Items you need either don't spawn or disappear and you're left going through giant chunks of procedural generated land and towns that are all essentially cut and pastes of the same thing. Daggerfall could in theory be modded into something GOAT but it would take a team of skilled modders years. As is this game is the most wasted potential of possibly anything out there. It's cool to play for 8-10 hours to see the scope and check out some of its neat features, but this game is frustrating I got preety near the end myself putting a good 90 hours in before quest items where missing and there was no workaround. I started a new quest and got about 40 hours in before the same junk sort of happened. If there was a way in the console to spawn the quest items I'd have used that even but the game won't recognize those as the quest items.
Tl:dr: This game is everything wrong with procedural generation and really only stands impressive in the sense of scope. It's a broken piece of tech you're best treating as a gigantic sandbox. Don't bother trying to beat it.

Sometimes a quest object fails to spawn when the quest dungeon is entered. This is a lamentable situation and you are probably doing the very best thing that can be done: post a rant disguised as a faux review of the game on the internet.

Another way to address the problem is to reenter the dungeon. This almost always generates the quest target because the bug is uncommon. To get the location quickly, turn on the cheat/debug mode and just scroll ( ] ) through the quest locations.

yea just wait it out
you can at least do vampire quests and embrace the night

desu I think being a were-creature is more fun
though I like RPing as a vampire, once on my (only) wizard character I became a vamp and just stalked the dungeons under Daggerfall city for prey, coming out at night to kill

meet with the clan or otherwise your clan should send you secret letters with quests

how long has it been in game?
i think you might need to wait about a month

also you can still do other guild quests, really being a vamp translated better to sneaky/magic characters than fighters since the mages guild still loves you

Are there any modern games similar to Daggerfall? I'm talking about the realistically enormous world, the insanely complicated dungeons, the in-depth character creation system, the fatigue meter that you have to rest to keep filled or else you might die, quests that you'll lose forever if you don't complete them in time, etc. I don't know of any other games that offer this kind of experience.

they're the most "like" daggerfall for obvious reasons, just watered down massively.

Dungeon Hack
Might and Magic series, especially Dark Messiah
Dragons Dogma maybe?
Bards Tale
Paradise Lost: First Contact has some good exploration and is pretty fun but its not really the same as daggerfall since its 2D, more of a dungeon crawler

Witcher has nudity, pretty sure GTA still has near nudity (nipple pasties). DF would have had 90's soccer moms bitching about it if it was popular, but it was 90s PC so it was niche.

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe they're simply moving all Daggerfall content to the unity engine. They've done the "easy" part of simply moving assets and getting the game to run in unity.
In it's present state, you can't open containers, talk to NPCs, trigger guards too chase you, there are no NPCs wandering the streets, and you get no quest related dialogues, nor can you rest to heal yourself or level up. All that leads me to believe they haven't imported much of the code for Daggerfall.
So now they have to deal with tougher things like UI and general scripts that run under the hood, which they may have to re-make if they can't find a way to directly import. Currently they seem to be focusing on tools for modders.
So in short, it seems they're using the unity engine to handle graphics, but they may have to re-make certain code related things by hand. Hopefully they can copy scripts directly in unity as well.

Or another less convoluted answer would be that they are re-making the engine to unity , and are trying to make 1:1 copy of Daggerfall. When they run into things they can't import, they just re-make as accurately as possible
