I'm up to the spot in Iona's Dungeon where you read the old parchment, kill a monster and the stairs appear to the next level. Only the stairs don't appear. I know I'm in the right spot, this is the second time I've played past this part and I checked my old save game to be sure and I am in the right place. I've read the parchment, killed the monster and nothing. Read the parchment again, the incantation makes the room shake, and nothing, no monster and no stairs. How can I fix this? I searched the archives but I can't find any reference to this problem.

edit: Forgot to mention I am using the latest patch.

Only the second option gets the stairs, the others are just monsters(iirc). Try again and let me know if it worked.

I tried all the options twice before I posted.

Weird, normally the second option should open the stairs without monsters.
Seems like a problem for Raze. Pm him the link to this thread and he'll take a look. Maybe Kiya knows a sollution too. But me, i'm <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />.

Did you ever have the 1.33 patch installed, and maybe ran into the black map bug?

Long shot, but try deleting all of the files in the '..\Divine Divinity\Run\Dynamic' folder.
This folder is used as a cache for the game. Files are created / copied there from the save game folder when you load, and written / copied from that folder when you save a game. The files will be re-created as required the next time you start Divinity. If there was a corrupt file in that folder, deleting the files should fix the problem.
Then if you have a recent save just before reading the parchment, try that, otherwise just try again with your latest save.


The lower levels are optional, but you can get past the stairs with;
Teleporting Anywhere, via hex editor

coordinates: X = 40 6F ; Y = 70 D9 ; map = 00 - Iona's dungeon, level 2, at the stairs from level 1

BTW, if you need to use the hex editor method, it would be easier if you leave the dungeon, rescue Zandalor and get your teleporter stones back, then return for the lower levels. There is a shortcut from the bottom of the dungeon to level 1, but if you don't have your teleporter stones, you would either have to hex edit multiple times, or finish the dungeon without leaving to sleep or drop loot, etc.
