Solved'n'fixed bug reports / Re: map not loading
« on: June 07, 2020, 08:17:05 PM »
Hi Sami, I was able to open my saves on another (newer) Chromebook running Crouton! (EDIT: I simply installed the Linux version and am running it successfully, instead of trying to get Chromebook to run Crouton/Linux to run *Steam* to run URW.) Not sure if my former issue is still worth you looking into since my situation was so weird.

Happily playing now. p1m lives!

Hi - I'm not sure how to play an older version of the game through Steam. Steam has auto-updated me to 3.6. I would guess that my existing characters are from 3.52 or thereabouts. Is there a guide somewhere for playing an older version of URW on Steam?

Yes - when I try to create a new character, the game lets me get through all the steps and then freezes at the same spot: LOADING MAP... Avomeri (open sea).

I'm playing version 3.62 on Steam for Linux (through Crouton on a Chromebook). Previous versions on this same machine were playable as of a year ago. But playing 3.62, I can't get past the map loading screen. I have tried this with existing characters as well as creating new ones. The loading screen gets frozen at "LOADING MAP... Avomeri (open sea)" and I have to force-quit the program.

I read this question and have changed my settings to Old Hardware Mode: ON, and restarted the game. No change.

General Discussion / URW on Chromebook?
« on: December 23, 2017, 03:10:29 AM »
Any suggestions for playing the game on a Chromebook? I have a 2012 Samsung XE303C12 and a 2016 HP Chromebook 14 (T4M32UT). I currently play URW on an ancient PC running Lubuntu, but it's prone to freezing after a few hours of play, which has resulted in some interesting in-game glitches.

I successfully put Crouton on the older Chromebook, but was still unable to install the game files, and I'm not experienced enough with this sort of thing to know why.

Bug reports / Double Sage Bug in Bird Thief Quest
« on: October 09, 2017, 07:20:55 PM »
I've completed this quest with other characters in older versions of the game. Am running a new character with version 3.40 and I have an apparent bug:

* Talked to old man Pekka in the village who gives me the quest and tells me that Joukahainen the sage might help me out
* Joukahainen tells me to bring him a whole bird that I've hunted
* I catch a raven, pick up its body
* ...But when I talk to Joukahainen again, there is no dialogue prompt for "Here's that bird you wanted," or anything related to the quest! The only thing I see in [G] Greet is, [1] "How is it going?" He doesn't respond with anything quest-related.
* To make things even more confusing, there seem to be two Joukahainen the Sages in this village! They are carrying and wielding the same items. Neither one gives me a quest-related dialogue option.

Speaking to old man Pekka again gives me: "I guess the bird thief case isn't solved yet, or let me know if you've figured out something." My options are [1] "Umm... What bird thief? [2] "I'm still working to get it solved." and [3] "I'm sorry, but I can't do it.
