Glaicas, guard of de'Arnise Hold
« on: June 21, 2005, 06:05:14 AM »
In the de'Arnise Hold, there is a secret room where Glaicas is located. Glaicas has one pieces of the Flail of Ages.

If I want to get it from him without using violence, I have to charm him to "normalcy". But there's a bug with the game:
a couple of seconds after you charm him, he turns blue for about 1 second, then turns green again. So, basically,  the charm spell  is interfering with the script that would lead to him talking to character.. If I want to save him (and earn 22,550 xp), I have to time it right so that when you charm him (he turns green) one of my attacks will hit him (this must happen BEFORE he turns blue). He will turn red again. Then I must pause the game and stop all characters. After this he should talk to me.

Well, I have tried this like hundred times, and It doesnt work.

So Im asking, is there a way to edit the script? Like that you could get him back normal by using dispell.

The problem is that the dispel magic being cast via script on Glacias is generally not of a high enough level to un-charm him. We fix this in the Fixpack by changing the spell reference in ar1301.bcs from

Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
as FORCE_DISPEL_MAGIC never fails.

Is that how you do that? I've been charming himi with the RoHI, takes anywhere from 1 to 20 tries though.

Specifically, which Fixpack?

<SimDing0> Did you know G3 has secret forum rules?
<CamDawg> Yep. They're generally of the nature 'don't annoy Idobek.'
