Thought I would repost this now that I've joined:

I get a dialog loop problem at the point after you use the lens of Thoth or whever it's called. My character tells Ariadne about what happens, and she begins talking about an Efreet... and then my characters talks about Efreets...and then she talks about Efreets...and my chracters talks about Efreets...

Over and over and over. There is no option to select in the conversations themselves, and no way to end the cycle. I can't even select the save/load screen. What am I doing wrong??

Well Rane, I also managed to die. Took the same dive in the same pit :whistle:

@IMissDos (and many others) The controls are very awkward indeed, I just clicked around the screens and inventory to see what happens. Especially the edges of the screen! In Cook's Book click on the last line ("Essentials for your visit") to get to the options menu (load/save/etc.)

At a certain point in the game I took a leap forward and was able to use inventory items I never got???? :blink: This bug made the game even shorter Well I'm just going to replay it with another caracter and see if it happens again.

For enthusiasts of this game's theme I can recommend Laura Bow - The dagger of Amon Ra.

Heh, yeah, that happened to me too.

Would you mind using the "EDIT" button next time round instead of triple-posting? Thank you.


Right, sorry.

Hound of Shadow has nearly the same creation system, and AFAIK a similar theme too.

I'd guess so.
HOTU had it, if I remember right.
But it's a text-based adventure.

This game was also released under the name "The Scroll". The copy that I have of The Scroll is on CD but I suspect the controls are the same. I can scan the manual since so many people have had trouble figuring the game out. I was wondering if someone who has actually played Daughter of Serpents can read the manual before I submit it to make sure that it applies and they have not changed the controls on the CD version.

EDIT: I just noticed that they have branded this game as a No Go. Why? I haven't seen this game sold on the market in years. There is ONE copy for sale on Amazon that is listed as new but I'll bet it is from someone's private collection.
