Hi Lucretia

...And welcome to the forum <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" />
When you start posting, you will first be called a stranger, but later on with more postings, that will change.

The "Stranger" is a kind of "Ranking" . <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Interesting ... DirectX 9 is soo slow ? That would explain why my own Age of Wonders : Shadow Magic is slow, too ...

Thank you the three of you. You are very kind. I suppose by the time I will stop being a "stranger", you will probably know all about me...

Thank you again <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kissyou.gif" alt="" />

Btw today I made many attempts to explode the #@#ggg orc train. I failed! I will try again but at the moment the only thing is going to explode is my head.
#%@ggg orcs....

I think that directx v.7 was the best. I did not have any problems with that ver. On the other hand, since I downloaded v.9, I am experiencing really nasty crashes.... I am glad it is not my imagination... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Oh did I mentioned that I play all the way through with the latest patch? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" />

You are very welcome and as you probably read it won´t last long till you are one of us. (ähmm you of course already are <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />)

Concerning the misssion problem with the orc supplies:

You have to go to the point where this orc wagon is placed. (look at your map to be sure that you are at the right place.) After you got rid of those nasty orcs place yourself near the wagon and open your inventory. throw the explosives. Your char. will run away on her own.

You know to throw things?
If not: click on the explosives hold mouse button and pull the explosives out of your inventory and next to the wagon)

Good luck! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

sadly(or maybe fortunately) i don't have winXP on my system therefore i cannot confirm the problem with it & directx9 for DD. what entails may be another FAQ for DD on directx versions.

for anyone who happen 2 use WinXP & directx 9(a or b), please post & let us know if your system runs DD without problem or not. & state the problems. that way we can compile enough info & help members in their DD gaming. i'm sure raze is taking notes now...

I thank you again. For every word of it.

Well my problem with the wagon is that I am not sure I found it. Is it the place in which is plased the red flag in my map? Or do I have to go further? I have found a place with two wagons (not train wagons)where the flag is placed. If I go further, to the east, I face a big group of orcs which I can not defeat even if I use my scorpion... Btw I am a warrior in the game of level 10 by now. I have also enchanted all my armor. I will try again today.
I know how to drop things, etc. At first when I started the game, I did not know what to do. I had caps lock on and I thought that my graphics card (G force 2) could not support the game. I also had shift on and I thought that my mouse went crazy! I then entered the forum and read all about it... I was laughing with my self for hours <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ouch.gif" alt="" />

I am reading all your posts in here for 3 weeks now and you were very helpful indeed.

"I have found a place with two wagons (not train wagons)where the flag is placed."

The wagons are in a walled off section with a couple breaks in the wall, marked with a flag on the map. You should know you are in the right spot if you drag and drop the explosives from your inventory into the middle of the wagons and it blows up in a cut scene.
You do not need to do the army quests right away, and can head north east for easier monsters, north west for slow undead (easy using ranged attacks, tougher up close), or even clear the area around Aleroth first. Explore the farmlands, etc if you want a break from killing monsters.

Thank you master <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kissyou.gif" alt="" />

I have cleared Aleroth area already. It was so much fun!!!

I think that I am in the right spot right now and I will use my explosives today. Last night I was too tired after 7 hours continious play. Today I will make it! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" />

I try very hard not to cheat you know?

It is exactly where the red flag is placed? In the square?

So why do I get slow downs in the forest? I don't notice them much as my computer can handle to game without a problem, but it's like it's loading little bits and pieces as I go cross-country.
Not fussed, just curious.

Thats another funny thing with our engine. I'm not a programmer but I will try to explain it anyway. Lar, Rat, Grischa, please correct me if I mix it up. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> The engine is building up the screen by calculating the horizontal lines top down so each pixelrow is drawn one by one. At each "hole" in the Object the engine has to calculate the underlying objects shining through. The more holes an object has (think of all the leaves you can look through) the longer is takes.

Uh, err... thanx.
I'm from Germany. Eastgermany to be precise. The Name Marian is not uncommon for a boy there. It is a slawish version originated from the latin MARIUS (man from the ocean).

P.S. Btw my avatar is actually me just a little bit postprocessed. Here is the original.
