saved while dying
« on: October 01, 2011, 11:25:19 am »


               Hello!

First of all, sorry if I'm not posting this in the proper forum, but I don't know in which one would this fit. Right now, I'm playing The SoU campaign, and I'm at the Ruins in the Interlude. I'm that kind of person, who often uses quick save, even in combat, and make normal saves rarely.
So I was in the middle of the fight at the portal room, I still had lots of HP, I saved the game, and in the same moment, the grey slaad hit me very hard, and I died. When I load the save game, I'm immediately dead. I know, it's a huge fail from me.
So, I've started searching stuff on the internet. I found a save game editor, opened my save with it, and restored my HP to the max with it, but it didn't really work, I still die after loading.
Do I need to load my last manual save, which was made about 3-4 hours before, or is there any solution that might work?

Thanks in advance!

               3-4 hours isn't much, since you could re-do it in only one hour now that you know everything.
No tech here but I have a bad feeling about this, since I believe your death was "calculated" before it really occured, a few seconds before you actually see yourself dying. 'meaning it's probably written in your savegame... ':unsure:'
I would try going "God mode" through debugging if I were you, right when... "this only quicksave of yours" ':police:'... starts .
(You may find the "console commands" in my list in my signature). 
This would work only if the game gives you enough time to pause right before you die, when reloading.
But... your death is probably known to them all already... 
(For the records, you can press your 'pause' button (space-bar?) while the game is loading. It's gonna pause right when it starts. Faster than your finger.) 
But can't you simply resurrect in SoU? ':blink:'

This is the SoU forum, so you're in the right place. You would get more answers maybe with posting in the "general" one as this problem is not 100% SoU related. It could happen anywhere. 

Now, save! '<img'>
(I save at every new map, and sometimes I even save more than I play.)

               I tried pausing it while loading, but I was dead already. As far as I know, you can only resurrect in Chapter 1, with Drogan's ring, at least there was no 'respawn' option, just 'load game' and 'exit game'. Seems like I'll have to do it again. Anyway, thanks for your reply, I appreciate it. '<img'>

               Been there, done that.  It's happened to many of us at one time or another.  As jml, recommended... SAVE OFTEN! '<img'>

Also, due to how the game engine operates it is always possible that you can kill a hostile and then your PC may die once the remainder of the round completes.  For instance, if there were some flurries left in the round for an enemy which has died, the game will finish the calculations which may well result in killing your PC if it had very low HP at that point.  It happens, not often, but it does happen.  It's best to allow sufficient time for the complete round action to finish before saving or a similar undesirable result may occur.

Also, there are sometimes areas which have been scripted to disallow Respawn, though I don't recall any such areas in SoU.  It depends on how the designer of the module decided to handle toon death.

               Hip, you're my kind of guy. If I ever was into guys, so don't get too excited.
But I fall in love with a bear once... So maybe there is still a chance for you and I after all...
I don't know about living in a caban in some frozen mountains though.
Do you have water, at least?

*** I checked my files. It was a bearess. Sorry.

               Here comes the Trick Mistress. 
I just can't believe that...
That worked... You're alive, Petzakecske. 
Even with the Death panel on, you're still able to debug...
Allright, I decided, next life, I go for woman.
I should have remembered when my henchies healed/resurrected me with that panel on...
Bravo, lady!

Hip, how does she make us look like? Men, I suppose...
Now, I'm truly desperate... Thanks, Shia. '<img'>
"Bartender, make it double, and no question, please. Women..."

               Ahhh... j-m... only now you suspect men are the product of a genetic recessive gene?

Don't you just love the explicit way she instructs us?
"Load
Die
etc... etc...
Have fun!"

Shia is one of my heroines on a rather short list, a bearess of distinction that I would proudly share an aperitif if she ever consented to dare my den (fat chance!).  BTW, it is furnished in Danish modern motif with a real comfy fur-lined recliner. *lol*

               Are you saying men are nothing but a "brouillon", a draft, for women?
Maybe, maybe you're right...
Well, I've seen many proofs of this in my life... my lif as a guy... 
That kind of rings some bell, deep inside of me... like when you speak the truth, which you always do.
I'm even more desperate now than ever.
Thank you for shearing this. 
You really made my day. '<img'>

Well, there you go. I never once imagined someone would try to compliment me by comparing me to a bear. Isn;t life full of surprises? *laughing*

Brouillon? bouillon? I heard that rumour... something about rib bones?

               Try lowering the difficulty level, maybe the blow damage would be re-calculated, it is a fast thing to check out

Blow damage is already calculated with the attack roll.  It is merely delayed until later.

               Please help. I am playing Shadow of Undertide. I am Eleven Crypt. I cannot find the Kobold Leader. In trying to find him, I killed all the Kobolds but still not leader or his remains. Can anyone tell me what I have done wrong or send me a saved game after this, please, PLEASE, PLEASE.
