[MOD]Toorum's Manor

Post by bongobeat » Wed Jun 12, 2013 6:31 pm

Dear adventurers, monster hunters, puzzle seekers, tresor hunters, spell casters, skull breakers, wall readers, shoes wearers, let me introduce you to Toorum's Manor:

Long time ago, Toorum, the legendary battlemage, built his own keep in the Kartum valley with the help of King Ageral, near the border of the great Theareonan Empire.
You are a group of adventurers, mandated by the King, to investigate why Toorum didn't send any news since months. You will explore Toorum's manor, built on an old mine site and goes into the depths of the mountain. Mines, temples, ancient ruins, take some good shoes to fulfill your mission. You will walk a lot! Bring back Toorum, kill any hostiles, stay alive and report back to the King. As simply as that!

A full story mod, with lot of custom items (because I like carrying in my bag, 6 axes, 5 maces, 7 swords, 10 bows, 200 arrows and lots of food, I'm an athlete, oh yeah!), new treasures, 7 majors weapons for various skills (swords, axes, maces, throwing weapons, assassination, spellcraft and unarmed skills), weapon and items crafting, custom musics, custom sounds, one powerful armor set, 54 levels (count in the editor, but 10 of them are not levels), 2 endings possible, a short gameplay (more than 20 lvls) and a long one with boss fight (54 lvls), mix between exploration, puzzles and combat.

I apologize for my english which is not really good so if you find a bad translation, please post it here or give me a pm.

.:See end of this post for old versions history:.

Important tips:

Save often, play the game in normal or hard mode (advanced player), with a new party.
As the fights can be very hard (specially near the end), I suggest that "beginner" players start the mod in easy difficulty with a level 5 party at least.

I have integrated the quick action bar by JohnW.
You can use a hotkey to use healing or energy potions. But you will not be able to use other "upgraded" healing or energy potions. I have ask to JW, he thinks this is not possible, because of all datas around potions are hardcoded. So at this time you can only drink basic potions with the hotkey.

Far in the game, you will discover some special device, like forge altar, you will have to place some items on this altars. Please put the correct number of item or you will loose the other items. e.g: if you put 5 special ores while you need only 4 special ores, you will loose the 5th special ores. Or if you put any other item that is not necessary, you will loose it.

You can find two specific tomes: One teaches you how to become a ranger, it also change your existing skills with the armors, swords, axes, spellcraft and fire magic skills. If you have already used your skill points, don't use the tome until you find the 2nd specific tome: the tome of memories. This tome also give you back your skill points, so you can reuse them, to rebalance your skill points or before using the ranger tome.

I think it would be better if you fully finish it yourself and test it with a new party yourself before you ask people here to do that.

You are true and that's I 'm doing actually.
That's how I have changed many things, yesterday night I found a secret room, with nothing in, mhhhhh...what I ve done?
but I think I m not the proper tester, because I know every trap, secret, things...It is going too easy for me.
But in parallel I prefer that one or 2 peoples test some.
The purpose is to find if the game is difficult or not, before I finish it, so I can adjust difficulty, or I will have to restart many things. And this can only done by third party. But there is no need to test all, only the first three or four levels, that would be nice!
It is not so easy for me, if I think that it is or not difficult, I will "turn it hard or easy", but as I know the level... I don't know if it is the real thing to do.

I´d like to test your module, but as Komag said, it would be better finish the levels first, even if during the beta test you have to change stuff.
Besides, I´m playing that huge dungeon made by Lord Garth (70+ levels) and I´m still on level 12, I think. I can finish this dungeon and you finish yours, so I can try it. Deal? ;)

That's the dungeon:


Currently on level 17. It's more a hack and slash dungeon, no puzzles at all. (at least so far) :(

I have disabled the framework, both in the ini.lua and in the editor, then the mod works fine.
Did someone got an idea why I got this error?

I got another issue:

I got this message everytime I start the game, or the editor:

I didnt have that 2 days ago. what is this dungeon_manifest.bin?
