You mean to say that you have never heard of the succubus and her kiss of death!

Don't worry... I didn't know either until a few years ago.

Can you use a statuette and then walk or run? Even when walking a frog is relatively fast.

If you hit Caps Lock, or hold the Shift key down, and move the screen focus quickly, does that also cause problems?

Try lowering your hardware sound acceleration a notch (click Start | Run, type in dxdiag and hit Enter, then switch to the sound tab). A couple people had problems with the game crashing more often when running than walking, though that was also associated with going through doorways. The fix for that might help you, as well.

You can find a frog statuette in Nericon's garden, after killing all of the frogs there. Blake in Ars Magicana will give you the key after you have done at least one of the quests that get you an invitation to the castle. If you kill the talking tree in the Dark Forest you can get another statuette, though of a slowish moving form. I once found a spider statuette in a chest looting George's back room.

Statuettes can be purchased. Kistandalius (or maybe Blake) in Ars Magicana would probably be the best merchant to try, or Corinna (or maybe Mpenzak) in Verdistis.
If you quick save before running your mouse over an item/chest/merchant or hitting the alt key, you can identify the item or trade with the merchant, then quick load to get different stats or inventory. This can be done repeatedly to get the best stats or specific bonuses on an item (save after finding good candidates) or looking for specific items (such as spell books or charms) from merchants.

Alternately, if you can not find or buy a statuette conveniently, I could get the inventory files from one of my saves, that you could use.
Lost Items - guide and directory of inventory files


The graveyard teleporter is east of the church (that is north of the cursed abbey) and north of the graveyard (the one with the exit from Iona's dungeon, that is locked before you enter the castle).

So maybe the game is having problems drawing trees or something out in the wilderness, that it doesn't do in Ars Magicana?

Did you try running outside in Aleroth, inside a building or underground anywhere?
If you delete the files in the dynamics folder, start DD and begin a new game, can you run?

i always have been able to run. i just came from the council of seven on my way to verdistis(never been there before) and the closest active teleporter was the one of Ars. i tried to run and it chrashed.i will try to run around aleroth and if that dosnt work i will try it in a new game. (and the tree drawing is not the problem i think cause i can use shift and that does not brings problems)

i found the teleporter close to the graveyard. the problem is i cant activate it. i can use it to go to another teleporter but i cant go back.if you use the teleporter there is shown a map on wich the active teleportes have a blue flame, well it hasnt one. i tried dropping the magescroll on it, dindt workt. dos this has anything to do that i already have the divineskills or been in the council hall already?(i should not have the divineskills yet).

I would guess stamina potion restore a certain amount, but I never used them.

I don't think having the divine skills early would effect the teleporter pads.
This is probably due to replacing your story files to get past the crash with the succubus. You can use the teleporter pad because my story files say it has already been activated, but you can not teleport to it because information in a different file in your save says it has not.
You will have problems with some of the side quests in Verdistis also, as I explained before.

Since you can run in a new game, then something went wrong in the council hall. I don't think this could be directly related to replacing the story files. I still have your save, though, and will check....
I loaded your save with my story files, killed the succubus, quickly went through the conversation with Zandalor, teleportet to Ars magicana, and had no problems running.

hmm, so no fix for the running problem huh? well, i am already getting used to it running around as a frog(its usefull cause i dont need to slaughter mobs who would normally attack me).

i also found out that the teleporter in the dwarven village isnt working to. maybe you can tell me wich teleporters you have already activated?



P.S.: there is coming a guy tomorrow to fix my internet(at least i hope he does)
he is a gameprogrammer, maybe he can fix my running-prob to.

If you email me your zipped save I can take a look at it, but can't think of anything to try to fix it. A new game works, so the problem is probably be something in that save itself.

I'll check my save for the active teleporters (I think I got all of them in Rivertown and Verdistis)...
Yes, I had activated all 12 teleporter pads in Rivertown, and the one in the Verdistis park. I had not activated the one on the Verdistis sewer, or any of the ones in the Dark Forest.

Well i send you the file as soon as my computer is fixed. (the guy should be here in a couple of hours)

i hope i dont need to do much teleporting for the council members. maybe ill activate the teleportet in verdistis sewers. till now i got mardaneus, the orc and zandy. im going to verdistis for goemoe and the imp. the dwarve is complicated i think, and so is the elf with his stupid artefacts.

allright, the guy could not fix the problem. it seems like accidantly deleted a file that made other files chrashes or something like that. So he says the only solution is to format my hard disk <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />. well, first we will reinstall my windows and if that dosnt work i need to buy a new computer(my parents now dont want to give me one anymore, it went like: if you can only play games on your computer and delete files you need to let your computer work right we dont give you one anymore and blablabla...)or a extern hard disk could help to. anyone has suggestions what to choose? anew computer is ofcours better but also more expensive then a harddisk.
oh yeah, cause of all this trouble i dindt was able to play dd. another day of my life ruined! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />

If you were browsing around in Windows Explorer deleting things you thought you didn't need, then it probably was your fault. However, under normal use Windows will eventually develop problems all on its own (sometimes referred to as 'bit rot'). Installing/uninstalling programs can leave files and registry entries behind, crashes, power surges/brownouts and gremlins can corrupt files, cleanup or system utilities can be over aggressive or misidentify a problem, making things worse, etc.

You could also try re-installing Windows over itself. This is less drastic than a format and reinstall (you shouldn't need to reinstall and reconfigure all your programs), though will not necessarily fix the problem.

With a new hard drive installed, you could install Windows to it, and not have to worry about backing up everything on your current drive first (programs may not run from the old drive, though, without being reinstalled).
Is there room in your computer case for another hard drive, or did you specify an external drive because you were thinking of using it for backups? If you have lots of hard drive space already, a DVD-RW might be a better choice.

With your current system, how long do you expect to be able to play the games you want to play? If you are really looking forward to a specific game that your computer will not be able to handle even if you lower game options, then you will probably need to look at buying a new computer.
If you can hang on for a year or so, then Windows longhorn will be out, dual core 64 bit processors will be more mature and have better application support, etc (the usual better/faster/cheaper computer trend).
