    Yo niggaz! My name is Ireneusz (Yraenaios from Greek) :D But yo can call me I-R-E-LL-E-DRAX or just Irel.
    I'm from Trolland (Poland) xD I know English good but not perfect and also a little bit Русский and Deutsch.

    I'm playing ToEE (now using mod Co8) since 10 or less yers old. I'm gonna make my own complex mod with, makeable and zajebistable or just possible to get in game lycantrophy (by using Wild shape ofc and transform into Werewolf cuz i love werewolwes. :D) And many other things I could imagine if game and editor allow me.

    The similar name sure makes him sound like Irenicus' slightly lesser known younger brother.. :lol:
    Now all we need are his other siblings, Irenicus Light™ and I-can't-believe-it's-not-Irenicus. :shake:

    Welcome to the Board, Ireneusz. I think you are a relative of Irenicus. Are you? A friendlier person it would seem still optimistic and willing to talk. :wave:

    Hi! Been lurking for years! Have to! I have all the games listed on your site (except Dark Messiah and Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear). Many of them, I don't play any longer since I hate DOSBox! Gotta love GoG!?! I've finished the newer one's (Neverwinter, Icewind, TES III, IV and V, Dragon Age I & II.) Even finished Van Helsing I, II, & III as well as HoMM 3, 4, 5 & 6. I've yet to play Witcher, Mass Effect, Wizardry 6, 7, or 8, or Dragon Age III. I've started Witcher 1 and Inquisition. Witcher wants a controller...I don't. Unfortunately, I find Inquisition tedious. And, sacrilegious, I've also found Baldur's Gate to be a bit of a slog. Abandoned it a little over half-way through.

    Anyway, for some of these games (especially Neverwinter and IceWind) this is the only place to come for info.

    Thanks for being here.:kneel:

    missed a parentheses.

    Hi 'I really a dragon' - if you want in-game lycanthropy try the Morrowind (elderscrolls 3) expansions

    Welcome! Don't hesitate to ask questions, we can always use some extra activity on these boards.

    You have finished Oblivion and Skyrim? I never managed to do that, though I actually did finish Morrowind several times. The Witcher is ok with mouse and keyboard, much better than, say, NWN2 or indeed the Dragon Age series. In my opinion, of course ;)

    Tip for BG would be to not try to do everything. I just go for the tomes and the main plot, then continue to BG2.

    Me too - I played Morrowind over and over, I've started Oblivion and it's waiting but spent so much time at The Wormhole writing stories for our Ob Mods, and admining, it sort of passed me by ^^

    Maybe it's because I have not yet found one mod that upgrades all the visual issues I have with it? And I find all the fussing about to get mods set up a real pain (uh ohh - what have I said???) But I just want mods to be plug and play. One thing to program 'stuff' that is new - another to have to mess with stuff because it does not work otherwise (out of the closet!)

    Installing mods for the TES games is generally pretty much plug 'n play, but I agree that Oblivion has quite a few issues with the graphical interface (and level scaling :bang:).

    Yea, that is a big problem for me. I'm a completist. Side quests are EVERYTHING :deadhorse:. Added another 100 hrs to Oblivion and Skyrim because of it :bang:. That and I had to give up on horses...they kept dying :doh: (as I rode them off a cliff :tobattle:).

    Someone mentioned the graphics for TES. Have you tried the ENB enhancements? They really do "pretty it up" substantially.

    I got 2 of those L3 katanas from the Slavers - one in either hand or offload one to another character - boom boom ::D I speculate it's because one of the wizards resurrects and the katana guy gots resurrected complete with sword - had to fight him twice ;)

    Well I have been lurking on Sorcerer's Place for years now. I first found this place looking up a guide for wiz 8 or for patches to pre-EE Baldur's Gate 1 and 2. I've found myself consistently coming back.

    Finally caved and joined the forums because why not! So hello everybody! :)
