Hi smile

I've just bought a full-on Gothic experience - which I hope to attempt later in the year.

Gothic : The Complete Collection
The full award-winning Gothic Series including all 3 parts & addons.
[Plays in Win7 and WinXP]

So once I start it there is no doubt I will be coming here. Begging for help and advice from all you Gothic experts !! lol

Cheers.

Mad wave

Hi Mad, I love the Gothic games! 1 and 2 are the best, IMO. I took your advice & bought Risen on GOG. I haven't done much in it, I keep getting killed by the vulture. Is there a eapon somewhere?

I think we'll be helping each other with our new games. smile

Hi Marian, I remember you helped me a lot when I first played Gothic! Mad will probably have the same questions. lol

Barb, play the game as you did in Gothic. Run away and come back later. I remember avoiding a wolf. There is a knife on the beach and there are some items along the path and a shield in a crypt. I recommend heading to the swamp and the bandits first, but be careful not to join them. The inquisition path is much more interesting.

Hi smile

Barb ... Search that whole beach area good & proper (saving your game a lot lol) and you'll pick up quite a bit of stuff - including the knife Pokey mentioned.
And always check any plants you can gather as some have "permanent" beneficial effects happydance

[If Gothic is anything like Risen I just know I will like it - and thanks for the encouragement, folks !!]

Cheers.

Couldn't resist taking a peek at Gothic (the original) but getting used to the controls is certainly going to be a big learning curve for me eek

And I haven't even been able to find things like a "Stats Screen" or a "Quest Journal".
Does the game have them ?? And if so, how do I access them woozy

[Help is ALWAYS appreciated, thank you yes]

Still .... I can boast that I've discovered how to change from "movement mode" to "combat mode" .... even though completely by chance !! lol

Mad, you will get used to the controls quickly. Do you have a manual?

From a walkthrough:

1.5. Info screens
-----------------
Pressing S calls the Status Screen. You can see your level, experience, and various characteristics.
Pressing L calls the Mission Diary screen. Each time you find something interesting, there will be a scribbling sound and
something will be written in the Diary. There are several sections: current missions, completed missions, cancelled missions
and miscellaneous info.

Just in case you don't have a manual:

Gothic keyboard controls

It all seemed really strange to me at first too, but give it an hour or two and you will grow accustomed to it; that's how it was for me, anyway.

Before you confront the vulture, look around the shoreline completely, especially at the other end. There are a few things you can pick up.

I do have a manual and after I posted my questions here, I did find the answers yes
I can only surmise that I didn't don my proper Gothic Glasses soon enough - for which I apologise redface

But thank you very much, Pokey and Marian, for coming with help so quickly. It is much appreciated praise

And no doubt I'll be back asking for more before too long, Gothic Glasses or not !! shocked

I do quite like this game and I've played a little more now - mainly exploring "Old Camp" and trying to get my bearings there.
[Although I still seem to get lost with monotonous regularity !! lol]

But for me to level up and improve at all is going to take years because everything costs LOADS of ore and I've only managed to acquire 13 lumps of the stuff so far eek

And as I find my character so difficult to control in combat mode, my fighting is absolutely pathetic .... which doesn't help redface

Mad, hopefully the combat will feel more natural the more you play....
