Comparing both threads, my tests back then (on Win XP in English, I believe) gave fairly different respawn timings from the OP. blink.gif Not sure if I can find the time to test them on this other computer, but it would be an interesting thing to do to double check it. I agree that period/comma for decimals can be a huge problem (I remember having problems even in Excel!), although sometimes it's the different version of support files (ocx, dll) that causes a problem.

I don't have much time, but, yeah, three floors of difference is correct, so the simplest solution is to make sure you have a new monster in each class at most 3 levels deeper, so that it can have companions. In M1, though, the max number of monsters is 400 and all slots are taken, so you can't add new ones to fill the holes, you need to reshuffle them instead.
The thread where you read what I fixed in the T'Mana mod is this one: http://dejenol.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=3414 (all of mordor.uni.cc posts are available here, as far as I can tell)
I've ran afoul of the 3 letters search limit myself many times. You can't even search for Orc. sad.gif I'm sure Gaiacat, elro, and myself made posts about the unknowns in Wabbit's editor, but with the search jimped to four letters or more, finding them is... not easy.

Margoyles very often turn up at 10,3,1. The worst early quest is probably tengu, but the quest I had the most trouble with was actually Green Ooze (that rare variant of the clean-up).
Yeah, but now that I think of it, every time I was quested for them, Margoyles would just refuse to spawn at the obvious locations. dry.gif

The links to the maps we did in the Avatar sub-forum are sadly dead. I must still have the maps we did somewhere though. I think we did 9 maps in the end; can't remember if we added the monsters or not. It might be an idea to release them, rather than see them disappear in nothingness. The computer I used for that doesn't boot anymore, but I think I backed them up.

I'm leaving the vanilla username pages for now, and I deleted all of the "buy whatever cheap online" pages. The directory of all wiki pages is an awesome find! I tried it on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AllPages kinda cool way to educate oneself.

OK got them all, thanks DarkerMuffin! I went through the wiki change-log several times in the past, in hope of catching spam pages, but I missed those pages somehow. OTOH I'm a wiki ignoramus. dry.gif

How are you closing it? Try shutting it down normally (i.e. not "cut off power" or equivalent). And what virtual machine software are you using?

Yeah, WoD kills gargantuans instantly.


Well, besides the broken monster ID's there was an additional problem with higher level Indigini that we fixed. They have animal companions, but the companion type was erroneously set to indigini.

You seldom saw any T-indigini at all in the original version and when you did, it was always in strange groupings.

In the T-Mana mod all of the T-Indigini spawn with their proper companion groups and they also appear much more often, probably because of our fix.

See the discussion here: http://dejenol.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=3810

edit: I said 'we' but of course it was entirely your discovery, my contribution to the mod was minor. You fixed more than you knew. wink.gif
Well, I did know that at some point in time, obviously, but it's been a few years now and I have forgotten too much from lack of practice. sad.gif I also learned a lot about other hobbies, for better or worse.

@MythrilZenith: all links are broken from the time we moved from mordor.uni.cc to dejenol.com. As you can imagine there are probably thousands of links in the discussions so I can't fix them all. But I should really sit down and fix at least the links in the forum pointing to the downloads section. XD I did fix the T'Mana mod link just now.

The T'Mana mod shouldn't change anything with respect to T'Laneas, as far as I'm aware. Gargantuans died fast!

Most of those monsters are fairly rare in M1, and I think David Allen simply copied over the location and related spawning probabilities for most monsters in the initial iterations of M2, so they'd be equally rare in M2. dry.gif Hopefully somebody has the information you seek.

Well Braindead would be the one to ask. And also Prospero used to have a map editor, but I'm not sure when he last logged on (a long time ago, I'm afraid).

For the record you can also buy Mordor 1 (download) from gamersgate.com, there may be some sale on it at some time or the other. And regarding installing virtual machines using VirtualBox, check out this thread

Thanks for getting back to us on this, this had me stumped. Good to know you just need to copy the files from another computer.

Wow amazing! Thank you! I'd change that to "Monster Description from Mordor 2", but "Additional information" is good as well.

On the bright side, you have a fast way to the 10th floor smile.gif

What I find especially annoying here, is that there is this chute on 7 that takes you down to 10, but there isn't any chute at those same coordinates on 8 or 9... I mean it's supposed to be some kind of shaft, right ? I find it odd that chutes are more akin to teleporters than... well... chutes.

laugh.gif I have had the same thought for years! But Mordor is a world full of magic.
