"Huh? You control development whenever you level up, if I recall correctly. There were never many stats to choose from in the game, but you can choose one of three to increase. Unless I've forgotten how one went, which is always possible."

Apart from that there's nowhere shown that you get exp at all, you also won't hear anything about you're character going a level up. Haven't seen anything for stats increasing yet.

Or is this all because I'm playing in Exult??
"How to play" was included in the quick start card, while the manual provided flavor and background. In those days, you never were told that Sword A was better than Sword B, or that Armor A gave you immunity against Monster C--you had to figure all this out on your own, if you wanted to. There was a guide that came out separately in book form which went over all the numbers, etc, but I never bought it. GameFAQs has walkthroughs with all of that.

I'm finding this game really enjoyable but hard to play. I don't know where to go because there's no map. I find myself wandering around for hours not knowing where I am or what I am meant to be doing. There is no quest log so I can't remember what I should be doing.

I am now in much love with this game. While it is a bit too confusing at times and can be overwhelming it makes up for it in other ways.

Some of my characters lost their bags, maybe through battles or I don't know how. I didn't notice for a while and would prefer to not have to restart from an old save. Basically, the seemingly important items that I miss are 4 of the stones of virtue, and some crystall ball found in Minoc that showed some room with lots of beds when looking at it.

EDIT: Ok, somehow I had completely forgot that the virtue stones are for "marking" and "recalling". I should have remembered that, but I'm getting old. So having only 4 only means that I can use less of them. Also, I didn't see the "crystal ball with a vision" in a list of essential items that I found elsewhere on the net.

My original question was:

Is there a way to locate or find a "lost bag". Should they still be there somewhere in the map or could they have completely vanished? I'm looking over the forest near Dungeon Destard, because the company rather panicked there when confronted with a Drake.

But since then I have met 2 other problems. 1) The Avatar's map doesn't show the yellow cross of his position anymore. 2) I just lost an important save. Dosbox just crashed at some point, and reopening the Black Gate, it doesn't see my save (though the Gamexx.U7 file is still in the folder). Googling about this "lost save", I found that it is a common problem and it doesn't seem like there is a great solution for it. So I might just as well restart from when I had all my items, even if that means doing a few quests all over again. What a drag!! (...on, because I'm having to do Dungeon Destard all over again...arrggh...).

just complete this game. This is now the second game after Ultima 8 - Pagan that i completed.

Amazing Game and a big World. ^^

For all other i would advise to use Exult (Its free!) and also get the Keyring Mod for it. It fix some bugs and some new stuff (like a Keyring, which is a bless, since you will hundred and thousand keys ingame and you often dont know for what its used for...)

Legends will never die.

Check here for Maps i made

Hi everybody!

i would like to know, does anyone here actually own the game on 5.25" floppies? i have the US english version, and i have disk 1, 4 and 8 that are corrupt, unfortunately (and the Ultima Underworld demo disk as well)

Can anyone help me please? (by either copying the content and ZIP them, or making Images in MagicISO or other softwares like that)

I do have 2 more Ultima games that i need to find replacement disks (Images, or by using healthy floppies with the right content), but i'll post in the right threads for them.

I think it is the one at Minoc. You are supposed to take a dagger item and talk to someone at Minoc and Jhelom about it.

That <i>Fizzgig</i> avatar never fails to crack me up.
