Maybe a link to UESP's Daggerfall page on our gamepage would be nice. If Beth dont want their manuals laying around at repdocs or any other site, then UESP provides a great deal of valuable info on gameplay.

Seriously, I think Skynet was fantastic, quite ahead of its time. I bought the game when it first came out, but almost no one I know ever heard of it.
I still have the floppies and CDs, just never loaded them up even back in the day.(I used to just buy games off the shelves).

Bethesda has a general stance to copyright. Only the things that they declare as free are free. So, if there comes no manual with the free download and there is no manual on their site, there's no manual (for free). But asking doesn't cost a thing.

That kind of process would take like a year or more! It'd be like asking Bethesda to make an addon for their game, and Bethesda would never do that for a game released so long ago (morrowing was what, 2003 and oblivion was 2007?)

Just making the map itself would take an extremely long amount of time!

also calm down Dos Raider, it was a simple question, no need to blow a fuse over it.

w00t, i am questing, though, some people won't talk to me at all for some reason, which is sad, because i went in a house for Sale in Longing, daggarfall and there was a naked lady that i couldn't talk to

also i walked into a bank and some thief attacked me, why is that? I didn't do anything wrong..

The fact that you can't "interact" with all these naked women is disappointing.

You have a bad reputation with them. If that was from the Thieves Guild faction (different from the Assassins), either you've been doing thieving or smuggling quests outside their monopoly (from nobles etc. instead of from the Guild), or you've been doing do-good quests (bounty hunter, retrieving stolen stuff, etc.) that are against the Guild (likely you got those quests from nobles too).

I remember reading in some website that a lot of cool things didn't make it to the release date, and others got axed, notably sex and prostitution, which was reportedly made "in good taste" nonetheless. This can be found out, they say, because of leftover resources that can still be found within the game files, for example conversation lines that you could probably use to get in the bed with NPCs, or even to deal with hookers.

Too bad I don't remember the name of the website and I can't find it. It was small but very select, there was some other very curious content.

It is amazing the amount of time people have spent around this game, and the volume of lore and rumours it has generated.

For me, it is one of my favourite games, and probably the one I've played for the longest time (maybe World of Warcraft), but taking a look at the links you guys provided, it is clear that I didn't discover many of its features.

Maybe I'll try to install it again, as I still have the original. I hope the guide provided by TheChosen works fine, as I remember it was quite a boring process to set it for running under XP.

PD: My main character, the one I finished the game with (no cheating) was, I think, a level 28 knight.
