Hi Akroma, I've been watching your walkthru videos when I get stuck. Super Mod. I am stuck on level 6. I enter the far east portal (where there are 4) and I get to a section where you have to push the buttons. (Take your time) When I do and at least at the same speed you did in your video the door/gate does not open. Is there something I did wrong perhaps before getting there? Is there something I need to get in this section to move on? Last post in 2014 and don't know if you ever check this board. Can anyone else help me.... tks

Sorry for the late reply! Mod will be polished and ready in about another week. Version 3.5 will be the last - playtesting has turned up very little to be changed.

Ehm. Where is the mod on nexus? It says there are no files available to download...

Hi Akroma,
I was able to open the door!!
I'm glad to be able to continue the game.

hello Akroma,
It is very wonderful MOD. thank you!!

I am embarrassed by LV6.
Lv6 'Take all the time you need.'
The door does not open even if the same movement as your movie is done.
I referred to your movie.
Walking, timing of turn, push button.

I do importing and am playing the character.
Do not it become a same deal with you because of it?

The import did me a level 32 party.
However, EXP does not rise at all.
The character to change one's job to the ranger is normal.
Is this a specification of the game?

Hey Konsulus, thank you for reporting the bug... I will test this out and make changes to ensure that you do not get trapped :-) Hopefully you had a save not to far away! How is your progress now?

Restarting the dungeons had other positiv effects like alleviating my frustration I build up while watching your videos after passing that area to see what I have missed.....for secrets you could simply go back but all the items I used incorrecty squandering their true potential (Orgre Blodd) made me shout out in anger ;).
At the end one a little bit unspecific bug report (its been a while) First time entering engineering core. You have to go left where you find a pedestal where you have to leave the red gem to open one of two gates (the second one is the "Speed wont get you anywhere here" Lie). After opening both and going through the red gem disapears as usual. The problem was that by going to the pedestal again I managed to close one of the gates by placing a green or blue gem on the pedestal. I found no way of opening the gate afterwards since I was missing the red gem.

Hi Akroma,
thx for answering anyway but its my fault that I did not post in the forum thread for your mod.
I "solved" the skillpoit problem by first going through Master Quest (which is very generous with XP) . Well......if I was overleveled before what am I now ? No matter I play this game not realy because of the battles. I played until the engeneering core and enjoyed myself very much :) . At that point I stoped playing Grimrock for now firstly because I got sidetracked with other games and secondly because my eyes started hurting.........no other game forces you to focus so much on the monitor to not miss any secret buttons.......Anyway I plan to continue playing at some point so I will finish your dungeon.

Many apologies for the late reply (1 month actually) ... I have been careless with checking this thread. Your campaign sounds great, very flattered that you put my mod up there among your favourites :-) Re - wisp shift spell - you will find lots of tomes for skill points, but even so, you may have to back track a little to revisit each wisp portal location (I have to do this anyways). I dont haver an exhaustive list of the bonecraft rituals readily available yet, but I will be putting one up in the next couple of weeks :-) however, regarding the first belt ritual - you need the belt equipped by a fighter or rogue, with the following arrangement -

skull, skull
bloody skull, bone amulet
lizard tooth, lizard tooth

then just use the belt grimoire :-)
Let me know how you go....
And apologies agin for the delay in reply

Thx for the help. I found your walkthrough recently and managed to leave level 3 :) . The hardest times when I get stuck are usually when the game introduced a concept I have never seen before. The destructable walls were hinted at well enough but I never thought about hitting that cave in. I am currently playing a "campaign" with one party through several mods and yours is my favorite. Sadly that works also against me since I probably wont be able to learn the Whisp Jump spell :-/. Thanks to on of my fighter switching to Ranger and going down to level one I was easily able to access earth magic. But my level 13 main wizard will have problems sparing the missing 16 points for air 26 (and the 10 points earth for alchemy) if I dont find a lot of tomes.
Another thing what I cant get to work is Bonecraft. I should have everything for the first Belt at least but cant get the ritual to work. Do you somewhere have a list of all recipts so I can verify ?
