Re: Impossible quest I'll be more direct than trying a joke: It might be a good idea to ask in the Gameplay questions forum about something that seems wrong rather than immediately jumping to the conclusion that the issue is a bug.

Re: Setup Options do not save Also, you aren't using Steam, are you?

PS: you can copy my urw_ini.txt into your installation directory, and see if, afterwards, you can modify options. Maybe the game can't create it but can modify it..

Re: Setup Options do not save Thanks for testing :) that was my only bullet, my Mac knowledge is quite limited I'm afraid. To put it back:

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod 755 urw3-Darwin

Re: Impossible quest
Thus, I have learned two things from you: First, I can harvest the leaves of bear pipe in game while it hasn't ripened yet. Second, people here, especially you, are quite impolite and if they are in a bad mood, they are insulting each other just for fun, because it isn't just enough to be right, trying to humilate others while having the advantage is fun.

Without entering the specific subject of this topic, I want to remark on this. This forum doesn't seem to be such a hellhole, does it? It's quite the opposite. Some nastiness may happen from time to time but mostly people are very nice and helpful. Where does this anger come from? Have you had bad experiences?

PALU especially is a great help in this community - and I've never seen him being rude. Take that as you will.

Re: Injured adventurer clarification @bethefawn: The quests are tedious, and I certainly wouldn't mind if the search area was smaller. The wounded adventurer quest isn't hard (apart from the risk of getting killed), provided you use an effective search strategy. The bird thief and robber quests are worse, as it's a lot harder to see and find what you're looking for. However, I've succeeded with all the ones attempted, except the one where my character was killed (but I've been a hair's breadth from giving up a couple of times).

I use two different search strategies:
1. When the shelter is NOT is spruce infested terrain (so you've got a decent visibility), I start at one end of the circle and move back and forth over it on the world map, sweeping over the whole area one tile at a time. Each tile which matches the search criteria is entered and I look forwards, then backwards, and then zoom out again. If this is done when there is sufficient light (and you shouldn't search when there isn't), you should see either the shelter or blood scapes if you've found the tile. For robbers I do this for every tile. Covering the whole area for a robber quest takes about 3 days.
2. If the target is in spruce infested terrain, or there are a limited number of clear lines of border terrain, I move from one end of the line to the other on the zoomed in map, sufficiently far into the target type tile to see a little bit of the neighboring tile (which has the other type of terrain). Keep walking to follow the border line, and zoom out once in a while to get your bearings.

To help in the search, I use temporary markers to show where I've swept, in particular at the end of the day, so I know where to continue the next morning.
