But I'm stuck. I got to the cave after Quintus, the first one with spiders, and I decided to blow up the rocks to obtain a potion thinking that I could find another bomb elsewhere to go further into the cave. No. Of course not. No bombs anywhere. Did I just break the game? Is it that easy to duck up a play-through?

No, I think you're supposed to do that, I went back and tried blowing up the other rock, and it won't let you go farther in.

...So the rock that blocks the next screen can't be blown up...?

So then what the duck am I supposed to do, then? I'm been wandering forever doing nothing, not like it surprises me, a lot of DMODS seem to love being cryptic douchebags.

leprochaun, I KNOW RIGHT? OOOH it's so ducking annoying. And Absolution, you can blow up the rock, it's just that at this point, it doesn'
t seem especially helful to do so.

Perhaps trying to blow the rocks up in different order might help the next time? I don't honestly care whether you get stuck or not, Skorn, since I know you're only playing the game to nitpick about every possible thing you find negative. If I'm not mistaken, you hated the game before it was even released.

Some people...

well while we are on the subject of help, how the heck do I get through the cave below the goblin hut? I'm wandering around aimlessly and sight less and can not seem to find the crystals, and I have no sound coming from them.

And it seems a lot of people are getting stuck because your game is so cryptic, Skull. At least try to make a game that can be played.

I can't help if you're unable to get past one of the easiest areas in D-Mod history. Where all it requires to get past is talking to people and a little thought put into your playing.

I can understand if you get stuck in certain areas such as where Newdinker is, but if you manage to get stuck in Quintus you can pretty much abandon any hope of ever finishing the game.

It just seems I'm smarter than you, Skorn.

I think at this point it's already been proven many, many dinkers like this d-mod and don't find it that cryptic Honestly, I was content with Skull's cryptic answer to my question here when I got stuck. Games and puzzles are still meant to be played and solved with some work involved.

There was only one moment when I was worried that there might be a bug in the dmod: at the VB, after giving the medicine. I wanted to get into the mines, but the mayor didn't seem to have noticed that I helped him. It would be nice if his message changes to something like "thanks for the medicine, but I'm not letting you in anyway".

If you've talked to everybody, then you obviously didn't read their dialog very well, because they basically tell you what to do.

I love how most DMODs in existence, mainly Epics, are so badly made that I end up wandering around talking to everything and punching everything for like an hour before I give up. Some direction would be nice rather than "Libby was taken! Go find her!"

Reminds me of when I was playing Deus Ex and I was at the hanger where I had to disable the weapons lock on the helicopter. Guess what happened? The guy told me to release the weapons lock by going to this one specific room. Know what else? The door cannot be opened and there is no way in. I went to the roof...nothing there but two guys to kill and some items to get including swords in a crate. I explored the underground areas of the hanger and...I released some poisonous gas that did nothing but slightly harm me. I went to the barracks and killed everyone. The nanojey there didn't help me. Oh, and there was a secret passage to the bathrooms! Oooooooh.

I actually did run the game several times each with about a thirty minute play-time and I accomplished nothing there each time.

I already created the game. I don't need to explain every step for you. That would be like playing it for you. Skorn, you remind of Godley. He also hated games he was too simple to finish. That doesn't mean D-Mods are badly made. It just means you're not even trying to play them.

Newdinker, turn your in-game sound higher. There should be a save-machine like sound which you can follow.

Yes, playing a game for nearly a solid hour and not finding the next step is really not trying is it?

The fact is you made a game with no direction. Get over yourself.

I gave no direction? Really?! Everybody in the game says what to do and where to go pretty much (well, at this point anyway). There are only a few moments in the entire game where you have to wander around a bit to find something, but even then there's always a hint where to look at. Hell, I even gave you a Diary which you can read in case you forget what your current objectives are. You're the one who should get over yourself. You've been hating on HH2 since I announced it, and now you just can't admit I created something other people actually like. As I guessed, you're nitpicking about everything. I'm starting to doubt if you are really even stuck, or if you're just making this all up to say bad stuff about me once again. If you're really trying to play the game, there's no way anybody can be stupid enough to get stuck at this point of the game, for three days. Hell, there's barely 5 screens in the whole area.

quit it you 2

it's obvious that u 2 hate each other
why don't you take ur fight to pm's and stop polluting the board

skorn
if you really want to have fun playing. just ask once or twice nicely and then if he still doesn't help. pm some other friendly dinker who has played through hh2. I don't understand what joy one gets out of complaining.

skull
ppl admire you. given your dedication to the community. but arrogance will zero that all.
and what's it about looking down on others. you maybe smarter than some but you're going to find many more brighter guys than you. and does your dmod come with an iq requirement to play.
seriously if a simple guy plays ur game and gets stuck, should he just quit and move to something else. heck isn't this why walkthroughs are written. sure finding out by yourselves is fun but it can get annoying if ur stuck whatever be the reason for it.

anyways
somehow it feels like its a different forum
the humor is replaced by hate
same 3-4 ppl fighting again and again in every thread
there not being much of interest to read or comment
and flood of unhealthy topics like rinkydink

I'm not gonna help him because I know he'll only play it further to nitpick on something else, because he doesn't get along with me personally. He told everyone this game would never be released. He also told everyone it was going to suck. Neither one of those things happened, so now he's doing all he can, which obviously is call my game crap.

"No. Of course not. No bombs anywhere. Did I just break the game? Is it that easy to duck up a play-through?"

Most of us knew you were trying to antagonize when you ended with that line. You didn't ask what you should do next, you asked if you broke it. But whatever, there's plenty of other d-mods to play, so if you don't like it, move on to another

No, what I'm saying is I won't help you because you're a troll. I don't help trolls. If you want to play it, you'll have to figure stuff out by yourself because I'm not going to help someone who only plays my game to say it's crap. How come you like Hotel of the Middle Night so much since it's way more cryptic and crappy than this one?

If you want to call that stroking my ego, then yes, that's exactly what I'm doing.

maybe u just want to complete it so that u get a chance to write a bad review

@skull
ur dmod looks promising
playing hh and hh 2 is next on my list

btw why don't you update your old hoc dmod's too with a special edition or something
i'm sure with your current skill you can do justice to them now

And yet, you've defended Predisher who is by definition, a troll. And how do you know if I was playing it to she dog about it? For what it's worth, and from what I remember, HH1 was ok. I just wanted to play a sequel since I pretty much have to after completing the first one.

Hotel of the Middle Night had a good story whereas Historical Hero has to do with damsels in distress and crystals. How many RPGs have crystals? It's boring now. Hotel of the Middle Night was by far your best work to date given the chilling atmosphere and well told story.

Oh, and I ducking love the supernatural, so therefore, Hotel of the Middle Night was perfect for me. Historical Hero is just another DMOD.

See, this is valid feedback and criticism about why you don't like the game as much and I respect that. Insinuating it's broken as hell is what started this mess
