I try, the void gem kills me, the other gem enrages him. My other items aint much.

I really wanted to complete this over the weekend and the Evil Wizard has me stumped.

There's one thing I haven't tried on level 6 so I'm going to try one more time... but that sob is tough... and he always teleports away.

I beat him a lot but he keeps teleporting away..... grrrr......

Perhaps making him angry is the key...

I didn't post any updates this post weekend - but I got my butt handed to me for about 2 hours by that wizard. Nothing I do prevent him from teleporting away. I even met him in battle shortly after a teleport and beat him up enough to make him teleport away again. At that point I didn't have enough resources to search for and survive a third combat sequence in a row. Next play session I will save a new game name after each time I defeat him and he teleports away. I'll keep count. But he basically destroys all my gear and I use up all my potions and scrolls by the time I beat him twice. I have tried enraging him at different points in combat with the Soul Gem, makes no difference.

I don't know how specific savegames are. But, if the teleport is not random per incident and instead predefined as to be included in the save file, then after loading defautl save game (DSK1.GAME) I think your default is, defeat him until he teleports, continue straight down the hall to the end, make a right, go straight and he should he there after a step or two. At least that's where I found him after he teleported away once. I have no idea where he goes after the second teleport. if you manage to kill him with this save game - I'm going to drop dead.

I have a backup of your original dsk file so i just save to the default location which is the very same dsk file the game loads from. I keep it as DSK1 in classic99.

Okay... Don't feel bad, there were some bugs in your way on this one. :/

 

One, the wizard for some reason had the ability to destroy equipment in melee. This has been fixed; he can do it through a spell but he isn't gobbling down your magic staff. ;)

 

Two, his hit points were NOT being tracked correctly. I had to change the save game file to fix this; the GAME file on your disk has been updated so it's usable.

 

I also increased the wait time on displays in several places, they were moving a bit fast and were hard to catch at times.

 

Finally, I did test these changes out to make sure that they worked, and I was able to defeat the wizard with that saved game.

 

I'll be updating the main thread with the new version of the program too.

Channeling some nice "They Live" action, are we? That bank scene was one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a movie. . .
