My screen is flickery though. Is that normal or is it my FW version 1.0.1? It doesn't flicker in other apps just this one.
I didn't notice any flickering using firmware 1.0, but after upgrading to 1.1.0 I think it flickers a bit, so I suppose that it's a firmware problem <_<

Regards

Hmmm, I'm confused about this bit:

If you also want to hear sound effects, you must download the following files and unzip
them into exult/data:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/exult/jmsfx.zip
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/exult/jmsfxsi.zip
... each of these .zips has an .flx file, a readme and a wavlist file ... do we need the wavlist file? And how should it be installed? ... if we unzip it to EXULT/DATA it will over-write itself ... :blink:
Don't worry, you only need .flx files, readme and wavlist files are useless.

By the way, I suggested to extract both files, but if you only want to play to BG or SI you can only extract the first or second file respectively in order to save some disk space :)

Regards

Great job! WOOTY! I bought this when I was a kid but didn't have a computer. I even managed to crash my friend's parents' computer by overwriting their autoexec with the boot disk for U7 :lol: Needless to say I couldn't play it on their computer anymore. :(
Now I can! Thanks! If you need anymore help is editing text, let me know.

First off, great job! It boots and runs! WOOTY! I bought this when I was a kid but didn't have a computer. I even managed to crash my friend's parents' computer by overwriting their autoexec with the boot disk for U7 :lol:

Anyways, when should I be hearing the first sounds or music? I installed the music and sound effects files in the proper directories. I started the game just to the point of meeting Iolo. Is there sound up to that point or do I have to wait? How about the start menu?
You should hear the first music since the moment Exult starts and shows Exult logo :)

Are you sure the files are correctly installed? Do you see a blue speaker next to BG or SI name in main menu or a red X?

Regards

This version works beautifully. I have't played through it much yet but I was wondering if the battling is going to be hard to control.

Sent you a little donation Puck, thanks for this port, the constant work on it, and the updates. It'll be more later, kinda poor after the holiday season :p

Heheh, don't forget to add sound to Lady Killer! I play that a few times a week still! :D

copy the folder named static and the file named dsstore to either blackgate or serpentisle depending ont hegame files you want to play

for sound look to the first page of this thread it has all the download linls and relevant info about directory
Ok did that except I didn't notice anything called "DSStore" anywhere. It seems to work.


My screen is flickery though. Is that normal or is it my FW version 1.0.1? It doesn't flicker in other apps just this one.
arrgh just me being a noob dsstore was because i got a mac version of utima isnt needed kinda like that thumbs thin in xp i think though dont quote me on that

the flikering describe it, is it just the sprites graphics or is the flikering accompaied by rolling "fuzzyness" vertically?

The screen just changes brightness on and off evenly. Brighter-darker-brighter-darker and so on. It fluctuates about 5-10% brightness. It is the only app that does it so far.

Hi,

I've seen your donation and I want to thank you very much for your detail :)

I haven't forgotten Lady Killer, but I like to work in several projects at a time to not get stuck or bored in one of them :)

Yes, I have posted here the same that I mailed to you, but my English doesn't permit me to express in some different ways :p

yay I just killed a guard with my pitchfork oO
really great job, great game I hope I now finally get to play it

one question about combat, I saw in the options that you can change the mode to space pauses, can you use this already or are you planning to integrate this?

That is not available, but if you like I will add that mode to next beta :)
I think it would be a great addition. I haven't got into heavy battles yet, but later on when you are changing spells or you use glass swords that break, it's nice to change and direct things, especially with a joystick mouse.

Cheers!

Wow this is great! i haven't put it down since i loaded it on my SD card!
I just wanted to mention (if it hasen't been said already) save games seem to transfer fine to and from pc version of Exult, so if you ppl already have a game going like me (this game is huge) or just want to have a name other than "Avatar" this might help you :)

On a side note, ever put the dirty diper on Iolo? HILARIOUS!
nyahaha ill never get sick of this game!
(still has the origional 8 floppies for SI) ah memorioes...

Great port! I remember playing Ultima VII with a friend who was showing it to me a while back (although I can't quite remember when) and it'll make a great addition to the gp2x! Just wish I had bought it back then.

I apologise if this is not the right place to post this, but I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me any advice (in case anyone else has been in a similar situation). I'd love to play Ultima VII, but I'm having difficulty finding a place to buy it in the UK. Having searched and searched I've had no luck - does anyone know somewhere in the UK I can buy it?

The closest I came was amazon.com, but they refuse to ship to the UK :(

Thanks :) Just thought I would ask in case anyone was able to suggest a site which I hadn't been able to find yet.

Have you tried searching for the Ultima Collection CD? it has all Ultima games up to 8 on it and ever some other stuff The Great Lord British has made on it (Even an interview movie with the big LB!)?

On an almost related subject, Lord British is helping make a up and coming MMORPG called Tabula Rasa http://www.playtr.com/index.html if anyone is intrested (and excited like me that he is still in the game biz hah).

I am having trouble with this game booting me back to the GP2X main menu when I go to save a game. I wasn't having this problem with the previous version but now it is happening all the time. Anyone else have this problem or have any ideas cause I really want to play this game.

To pick up an object, put the cursor over it then hold the B button and drag it to the person you want the give it to.
