Oh God, I hate the slow mouse, in some areas (near the Druid's cottage) it slows to a crawl. I just avoid that area if I can. People are complaining about it but I haven't seen any concrete solutions for it. So many people are experiencing it that it must be a game problem, which they really should fix.

If someone's unconscious, you can try using the cleric's heal skill (not spell). The heal skill is located on the radial menu (anvil button)and if your cleric has points in that skill they can try to revive, or "stabilize" an unconscious character.

I must not have enough points in heal yet 'cause
nothing works.
Maybe a patch will be forthcoming for the mouse
if there's lots of people having the problem.
I experienced it in the tower with the poison spider, the Druid area and those Meadows where you
go with the Sage to get the Wizard scrolls. I thought it was maybe my computer, but I'm glad to
know that's not the problem.

Schwab, do you know where I can get the no cd patch for this game? My game is now crashing on
launch and I can't fix it. I went to the Atari
board but I can't find the unofficial patch they
mention that might fix it.

on the atari forum i read something about the mouse scroll and that the setting for 1 and 5 were bugged so if you have your setting on them try changing it and see if that improves it.

You're talking about going in under options in ToEE? I can't even get there anymore it just won't launch period. Someone said something about the SecureRom disk protection which is OK if you don't want people to copy the thing. I just want to play it for crying out loud.
I read on the Atari forum that there is a chance that there will be no patches. I have never heard of such a thing. I am so frustrated. I think if you weren't going to offer support in the form of patches for your crappy programming job you should have told people ahead of time and
saved us all a lot of coin and misery.
I'm almost ready to champion Lionheart cause at least it played.

Thanks Zanthia, I didn't even know where to start looking for this "crack" download.

Hope that helps Debra!

I sincerely hope Troika can convince Atari to license patches, this game seriously needs them.
From what I've seen the designers are good people and would help if they could, but the publisher controls patches so we'll have to wait and see.

There are quest bugs where I am in the game now and it's frustrating when you have done what's needed and can't get the XP!

Could someone tell me what they mean about going deep to find the exe files? I've looked through
all the files in the game and I don't find an exe.
How do I use this crack, Zanthia??? I am so confused.

Back again. I got the crack and opened it into
the ToEE file. It says I don't have a particular
.dll, but the one it's saying I don't have is in the same file folder I downloaded it to. What am
I doing wrong? Do I need to remove some other file that represents the .exe file of ToEE before
I use the crack file?

debra,

he was referring to homeworld 2 not greyhawk. greyhawks exe file is in the root directory. the name is ToEE.exe. Back up this file. I like to have it renamed. call it something like ToEE_orig.exe or anything you want. You need to use winace or winrar to decompress the crack. I am pretty sure winzip will not work. Then copy the crack over and hopefully all you problems will be solved.

I cannot find the ToEE exe file. I've looked at
everything and it's no go. Schwab, do you know
where the .exe file is? You don't have the game
yet do you Zanthia?

Get what to work? I didn't need the crack deal since I'm not having any problem launching the game (knock wood), I was just thankful you were able to find it for Debra. thumbsup

I've never had to use one of these programs to bypass copy protection, but it angers me that publishers still use these things since it's more than likely that pirates can easily get around them. Only the consumers are hurt, really.

I did find this advice at Atari forums, don't know if it will work for you Debra but it's worth a shot:

"Concerning the game not starting, the nocd crack did not help at all. It was reforce (refresh fix) !!! If I put 800x600 and 1024x768 to 60 Hz, it works. Then I selected 85 Hz in the game menu, and I then i could set both 800x600 and 1024x768 to 85Hz using reforce. Anything more and CTD. I'm not using the nocd crack (which never worked for me). Maybe now with the refresh "fix" (hack) the nocd hack will work."

Oh, also, someone else said they got help when they called Atari tech support (they were at least able to narrow down the cause of the problem, it seems there are different reasons for the no-launch problem).

Here's a link to the Atari Tech support for TOEE, though I didn't go so far to find their contact phone #, check out the online info first.
