    ok guess I have to post first

    I guess I am needing to make 10 posts to start a thread, understandable. damn jungle out there. Gibberlings3 site seems to be down for me. I'm unable to finish my BWS mega-mod install (which is just a reinstall from what I did yesterday) which I accidentally wiped the downloads out.

    tlndr: HI ALL! G3 IS DOWN. :/

    You only need 10 posts to post on people's profiles or start a blog - you can do everything else already. Welcome aboard! ;) And G3 is loading fine for me at the moment.

    Hmm

    yes, the site is "up" but I am unable to get anything from the downloads page. Every link just forwards to the forums page. It's the same on different devices in my house. Try to download say bg2 tweaks v16 for me and test if it's working for anyone else?

    FOR THE GLORY OF AMN!!!

    Hello everyone again!

    I surely am not a notable user...no one will probably remember me since I didn't post much. :)
    I subscribed end of 2012 because I was playing BG2 once more and did like the idea of being part of this community and to share my passion for IE games.

    I sadly lost track, but now here I am again playing old school games!

    I am into:

    Dark Earth (1997)
    BG2: SoA (Elven F/M/T, Chaotic Neutral - but might do a different run).

    What to say further?
    Greetings to everyone once more: I'm sure I'll have fun here, because for the few times I posted (and the NUMEROUS times I lurked through the years) I did!

    Check the post date, man. It's been four months. I think it's safe to say that the issue has been resolved in the meanwhile. :p

    Hi all.
    Played both BG 1 & 2 many times from when they came out but it's been a long time and wanted to have another play trough using some of the mods now available. Have good memories of reading fighting fantasy books ( first was "City of Thieves"),playing paper and dice D&D and making lead figures when I was a kid back in the day. :)

    Greetings and felicitations one and all! After many years of absence from tabletop role playing, I am diving in with both feet, and found this community quite by accident through a thread answering the meaning of THACO, which still confuses me to this day! Cheers!

    THAC0 confuses everyone, including people who designed that system. Luckily, in IE games all you need to know is: The lower your THAC0, the better. Same with saving throws.

    Howdy Munderpool. Yep, To Hit Armor Class Zero (THAC0) was never a straightforward or particularly good way to handle attacking and defending. Later iterations of D&D did this so much better by making... you guessed it: the higher numbers better!

    Funny, the guy who came up with the later approach probably got a big bonus that year, maybe even a promotion. But really, all he did was come up with the obvious approach to handle this, vs. the bass ackwards approach that was originally conceived... most likely under the influence of some sort of controlled substance.

    Welcome Gazza to the world of the intrepid adventurer.

    I can't help but comment on the thaco on armour or DR as used in non-D&D games -- more on that here.

    Hi there. It's not clear to me how joining this site will help you with that problem. This is a good site to join if you're into D&D cRPGs and "old school" RPGs, and want to be part of a respectful, if slow paced, community. The other stuff, maybe try counseling. I don't know. Not really my field.

    I certainly hope so, otherwise I've been using this site wrong for all these years ;)
